An ideal recruit

Some activist students at Georgia Tech may want to snatch this girl up before she signs somewhere else. Seriously, if they’re scouting young talent properly, then they have to take notice of this prospect — she’s already got the suing-her-own-school thing down, and at such a young age. 😉

    A couple of observations:

    #1 That girl is crazy.
    #2 Jeff is a jerk. There are two VERY different reasons behind the lawsuits.

    Well, it’s because Tech’s “activist students” are as brainwashed as the Palestinian kids in the East Bank.

    Republican=Good
    Anything else=Bad

    There is no gray.

    Oh, I dunno. If they didn’t keep doing the same stupid stuff over and over, they wouldn’t be attacked. And it isn’t like conservatives have a corner on the market of being condescending.

    Jeff,

    After all the whining and boo-hooing from Dawg-shi*ters over Michael Adams’ decision to not extend Vince Dooley’s contract for one year longer than Dooley ORIGINALLY proposed and signed an agreement to do so, you really have no room to even attempt to crack a joke.

    In fact, I find that there’s a lot more in common between the irrational people behind this cheerleader’s actions and the actions of Dawg-shi*ters than anything possibly ever pulled by anyone related to Tech.

    Next time, you might want to consult with some heavier-hitters in the Dawg Kingdom and hash-out a better strategy to devise a crack at Tech. Granted…you might have to recruit about several hundred people to help you with that project…

    Anyone hear about the tech student that showed up two hours late to class?

    the escalator was stuck

    hahaha. BS, I hadn’t gone to Georgia yet at the time — and, as you will remember from our conversation at the Leprechaun, the college I grew up rooting for was Oklahoma, not UGA. 🙂

    Refresh my memory, if you will, what it is you’re talking about?

    Adam Smith,

    The reason behind both lawsuits is that a girl got her feelings hurt.

    And Jeff, most students at Tech are pretty tired of the crap these girls keep pulling.

    Of course, the RedState article hits the nail succinctly–it’s all based on a liberal mindset that eschews all personal responsibility and willingness to learn from failure. The girls at Tech learned this early when their first threats were rewarded with the opportunity to get rid of bad grades, and so they learned quickly.

    Sadly, they are being set up as the future of the Republican Party. Damn shame all around. Makes themselves, Tech, and Republicans look bad all at the same time.

    Burdell,

    “The reason behind both lawsuits is that a girl got her feelings hurt.”

    Have you ever met these girls? It has nothing to do with feelings but fact of law. Don’t agree? Well, that’s too bad. The courts do.

    “most students at Tech are pretty tired of the crap these girls keep pulling.”

    Is that why they keep sending threats, including one on Valentines Day that said they were going to rape one of the plaintiffs? Is that why they need a police escort to go to class? Now, who’s acting mature?

    Yes, I have met these girls. Have you?

    Don’t engage in the nonsense implying that because these girls have received threats that their cause is just. I don’t know if those threats came from Tech students or somebody else. It doesn’t really matter. Most Tech students are simply frustrated that a)these girls get so much press and b)some moron threatens them and gives them even more press. I don’t doubt for a minute that they are hyping up those threats, just like they’ve done everything else.

    I’m not excusing any threats that were made. I am however refusing to accept that these threats have any bearing whatsoever on the broader question of whether these girls’ claims are justified.

    As to who exactly is “depressing free speech rights,” perhaps you should take the time to read Tech’s Housing policy before and after this little lawsuit. The court-imposed policy is more restrictive than the previous one–it simply does it in a less PC way.

    On that note, the question of law is far from settled. Most of the lawsuit addresses policies in the dormitories, which presents two problems for these girls. 1) As far as I know, they don’t live in the dorms, and 2) other courts have ruled that dorms can be subject to more stringent speech restrictions, given their inherently non-public nature.

    The university is a forum for ideas, whether it is public or private. As such, what may be construed as “funding a particular ideology” in some other situation might not be so on a university campus, whether you agree with that ideology or not.

    When you hold a public university to a “different standard” as you put it, you are essentially saying that either a)the university can host no controversial events at all, or b) it must always provide “balancing” events.

    But how do you “balance” the Obama event? Does the university mandate that Rudy Giuliani come to campus? Is that balanced enough? I’m not sure the Libertarians would agree. What about a politician even more socialist than Obama?

    The problem stays the same whether it’s politics, theatre, campus debates, or what professors say. If you mandate a “balance,” somebody has to be empowered to determine what that “balance” should be. I’m not ready to entrust anybody with that kind of authority.

    Much less a politician.
