Suffolk University Law School Professor Michael Avery Objects to Helping US Troops in Afghanistan
MOONBAT ALERT … Take a good look at what the far Left is saying in America and this whack job is teaching law to your kids.
Maybe sometimes people should use the age old adage of, if you have nothing good to say, don’t say anything at at.
Hint, Suffolk University Law School professor Michael Avery, this applies to you. The law school professor actually had the audacity to object to the college getting donations for care packages for the Unites States military troops in Afghanistan.
Michael Avery, who is a Suffolk University Law School professor, unleashed his serious objection after the Suffolk Law staff asked the students for donations to send care packages to the troops in Afghanistan, even though the email also mentioned that a student at the school is serving overseas would be one of the recipients of the care package.
Avery’s email response was recorded on the Natural Truth by Michael Graham. Here is how Michael Avery starts his email:
”I think it is shameful that it is perceived as legitimate to solicit in an academic institution for support for men and woman who have gone overseas to kill other human beings. I understand that there is a residual sympathy for service members, perhaps engendered by support for troops in World War II, or perhaps from when there was a draft and people with few resources to resist were involuntarily sent to battle. That sympathy is not particularly rational in today’s world, however.
The United States may well be the most war prone country in the history of civilization. We have been at war two years out of three since the Cold War ended. We have 700 overseas military bases. What other country has any? In the last ten years we have squandered hundreds of billions of dollars in unnecessary foreign invasions. Those are dollars that could have been used for people who are losing their homes due to the economic collapse, for education, to repair our infrastructure, or for any of a thousand better purposes than making war. And of course those hundreds of billions of dollars have gone for death and destruction.”

Maybe this law professor would like to tell us who defends his freedom of speech rights that allows him to rant such insanity? Let’s send this fool to China or any Muslim county and see if he is afforded the same rights.

This guy did attend Moscow University in the 60′s. What do you expect? Here’s his email if you want to comment directly to him.
What a throwback ! Go back to the 60′s ! Treat the troops with honor, respect and care! They are ( whether you accept it or not) protecting your right to say or write stuff that is absolutely in-American !
This man is a worthless POS. He enjoys the protection of our armed forces while disrespecting the job that they do. He doesn’t seem to realize that they protect the freedom of speech that he abuses. Typical lib that wants it both ways.
Your link appears to be broken or the material has been removed.
So, according to the professor, anyone who believes in supporting the troops is not using rational thought.
There are thousands of these left-wing whack jobs teaching in our k-12 schools as well as colleges and universities. They need to be identified and removed from the classroom.
He would probably require a little time at a Marine boot camp to correct his attitude.
Our soldiers did not go overseas to “kill” people. They went overseas to protect your freedoms and rights that you have in the United States. Those soldiers and veterans put their lives on the line for you to be able to say what you did. When was the last time you put your life on the line for your country? I would venture to say, never…
hmmm..it seems mr. avery is right about one thing:
what exactly are u.s. troops doing in the middle east, anyways?
Second, the whole country was fooled into this never ending war on “terror” by the bush administration…and we are supposed to go along with it? support troops, send care packages…because they are already there..and need our sympathy, comfort and warmth?
See, this is exactly what these military recruiters count on when they sucker barely 17=18 year old kids into signing on with the age old lines of “duty”, “integrity”, “honor”, “courage”..ad infinitum.
See, once one enlists, most families have to lend their support to their sibling or children (what other choice is there?)
I believe any american can show these traits by doing simple things, like finishing high school, attending college, getting a job, buying a home,paying taxes..there is also honor and a lot more dedication in getting these simple things done.
But the military offers a quick way out by the simple act of signing on the dotted line, and then spend 4 to 8 years of your life making up to your committment.
For all of those who harp on these fine men/women being out there fighting for “my freedoms”..
exactly, which freedoms are you referring to?
When Obama gets done with this country, there will be no freedoms for terrorists to want to kill us for or hate us.
Besides, the averag american will be more likely to run into a TSA thug at the airport, than a bona-fide, camel riding, so-called “terrorist”.
It is a horrible thought to think on how over 1 trillion dollars were spent to kill osama bin laden and over 3000 americans were killed by the u.s. government in order for all of this money to be spent.
Most folk do not want to think that our government would ever do such a thing, but just think on how some 5 thousand u.s. service men have already died fighting this so-called war.
Free your minds, bring all service men home. This war is nothing but a lie.
SM: You have yet to explain why it is wrong to send the troops care packages. Which is what this is all about.
To whom it may consern, Mr. Avery gets the right to make his statement thanks to people in the military that also protect that right. you are wrong and should not be teaching others. you should think about moving away to another contry if you dont like this one. Boooooooo To Mr Avery and Suffolk university.
Let the idiot professor know how you feel at email@example.com.
@pillowbiter: How well did you do in your history classes in school? How much have you retained? I see no evidence that you retained anything at all. You’re as clueless as the professor.
What a jerk you are also! Are you sure you aren’t this guy’s relative? It is people like you (bed-wetting liberals) that are causing the downfall of this country! Don’t blame the Bush admin. for everything. If you would check the history, Clinton was the one that could have stopped 9/11 from ever happening!!! This professor should not be allowed to teach young people. I bet if he spent a couple of days in Iran, he would love to return to the USA and enjoy the liberties that our military provide and protect for us!!!
How can one person be so stupid? what a pathetic piece of shit you have shown yourself to be, to spew such hatred ,when it’s because of the military that you have the right spout you communist views.
Fire him and then force him to go live in Iran. He can teach his lies to them
“age old lines of duty, intergrity, honor, courage”? It is impossible to deem the truth as age old lines. We are bound by duty to our country, our familes, our peers who stand shoulder to shoulder with us inspite of the fickle turning tides of popular opinion. Integrity is holding to the faith that our country even with its faults and shortcomings is still worth fighting and bleeding for. Honor to stay fast to uphold to our oaths to our country and families while still holding the line instead of hiding behind hindsight.. time and history will tell the truth behind the “war on terror” right or wrong is for time to tell not you or I. Courage in the face of uncertainty where there maybe a thought of is this the right thing I am doing? We hold true to what we are doing for it is the worst crime when a good man does nothing.
Now you also mention that the any american can demonstrate these traits by doing the “simple things”? Perhaps that may be true and they can show those traits; however, DO NOT compair showing those traits doing the “simple things” to showing those traits doing what I and my fellow Soldiers have done. YOU can try walk in my boots; I graduated from high school in the top 20 of my class then enlisted. I have attended college while still serving in the military and have even earned an Associates of Science in Applied Technology and am working torward my Bachelors, getting a job? the military is a commitment not a job. I have bought a house. I pay taxes and miss many state and federal assistance programs by a handfull of dollars. Now YOU can try and do all that while still being deployed overseas, missing the first 2 yrs of your son’s life, missing more milestones of your children’s lives than you can count. You try continuing doing the “simple things” while facing the reality that at any given moment either you or one of your friends may not make it to the “end” of the deployment and even if you do then you could count on spending the essential time with your families but it isn’t a matter if you will deploy again but a matter of how soon. Now try doing that for 18yrs then you can step up and hold up the statistics of the casualty rates and the cost. As for me and my fellow “suckers” we KNOW the true casualty rates first hand and we have lived the cost.
For pillowbiter: What freedoms are you referring to? How about your ability to post uncensored and to freely use the internet. There are many more besides the mundane ones I just mentioned. There are those of us who believe in serving our country instead of exploiting it. Some of what you stated I agree with but not the question of what freedoms we have compared to other countries. If you believe that other countries afford more freedoms, you are welcome to become a citizen there.
I feel bad for the troops, and I think they deserve care packages and a lot more. They’ve been thrust in a horrible position – not their fault.
But they are not defending our freedom, they are defending our access to oil. Anyone who doesn’t understand that is a fool.
The only way that they can be defending our freedom is if Iraq, Afghanistan, or Yemen etc. were in a position to take our freedoms away, i.e, defeat the US. And anyone with a brain knows that this is laughable – they were far from an existential threat to the US.
SM: If you do not think that our troops defend our freedoms, you are extremely misguided. You don’t think terrorists have the ability to take away our freedoms, really? Do you remember 9-11, have you seen what has happened to our freedoms since?
I’m not saying this to denegrate the enlisted, but mAybe if we come to terms with the fact that these wars are not neccessary we can stop getting in them. What better way would there be to honor the bravery of our troop than to not get them killed for no good reason?
“You don’t think terrorists have the ability to take away our freedoms, really? ”
As an existential threat, of course not. No one (with a brain) thinks they’re an existential threat to the USA. No one (w/ above caveat).
“Do you remember 9-11, have you seen what has happened to our freedoms since?”
I lived an hour from 9/11, and lost a friend in it. So yeah. And our freedoms have been eroded by things liek the Pat Act, but that’s a separate issue than the wars – we did that to ourselves.
Obviously terrorists can kill Americans. This is not the same as posing an existential threat to America, obviously. And I don’t think that massive land invasions of other countries is the way to target terror cells.
So that’s the distiction: if the military is fighting an existential threat to the US, they’re fighting for our freedoms. If they’re in some middle eastern occupation, they’re fighting for resource procurement, and I think this is an insufficient reason to be there.
So, to review:
terorism does not equal existential threat to the US
ME invasions are not necessary to fight terrorism
ME invasions are not defending our freedoms, as the US is no under existential threat.
This doesn’t mean the troops are any less brave, or sacrificed any less, or are any less deserving of our thanks, etc.
It’s aimed at ending the rhetorical entanglement of the excuses that send the troops to war (that this will defend our freedoms, a proposition that requires them to be under threat) in the first place and support for the troops.
I know politicos are usually unable to make distinctions, but do you see the difference? We need to stop sending our kids in harm’s way under false pretenses.
We are a gangster nation and we send poor whites, blacks, hispanics, etc. all over the world to protect the interest of the rich. The troops did not “go”, they were sent. I do not think any of us are naive enough to simply stop at the rhetoric of “protecting freedoms” without delving deeper into what is really going on. Has the Executive Branch of our government misused our troops in the name of freedom? Were the American people lied to in order to gain support for bogus military actions? We need to find the answers to these questions. One day the American People will stop playing XBOX, drinking, partying and drugging and will put a rogue government in check.
Don’t let these politicians hid behind our troops to avoid criticism. They are sending our husbands, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, etc. to die for what sounds like freedom but smells like….. money!
Check this out:
SM: You are so misguided what makes up the military. Although I do agree with you on the ridiculous playing of XBOX, etc, rather than being responsible individuals.
What happened to the my reply?
My bad – I had to log in before I saw “under moderation”
