Despicable Law Professor Inadvertently Aids Troops

Quoting Theresa Civantos
at The Weekly Standard:
“A care package drive for deployed U.S. troops is receiving national notice after a professor at Suffolk University Law School criticized the operation.

Professor Michael Avery emailed his colleagues just before Veterans’ Day in response to a school-wide email soliciting donations. ‘I think it is shameful,’ he wrote, ‘that it is perceived as legitimate to solicit in an academic institution for support for men and women who have gone overseas to kill other human beings.’

Avery’s email inadvertently contributed to the drive’s success, however, because its publication drew an outpouring of support for U.S. service members.”

Avery has the right to speak his mind (if he has one). So do I:

It has been said that blaming soldiers for war is like blaming fire fighters for fire. No matter what your position on the politics of war, our troops always deserve our support -- period. Avery’s hateful gibberish is utterly despicable and entirely indefensible.

Kudos to all those who rose up to support our troops on this occasion and so many other occasions.
