Woe to Virginia Tech
It has certainly been a time of personal tragedy for the families and students at Virginia Tech. When a crime of this magnitude occurs the words appear, “We must understand why this person did what they did so we can keep it from happening again.” A noble thought, but history proves that even after all is said and done there is a good chance it will happen again.
The first thing that jumps out about this is all the signs were there that this freak-show Cho Seung-Hui could snap. Make no mistake, Cho is personally to blame and responsible for his actions as all of us are, but I must ask could it be that he was shielded by the environment we know as political correctness? It’s true that many professors separated him from other students because he was on the edge of crazy, so why was he allowed to remain a student? The usual reason is little can be done legally until after a crime has been committed. Well a crime has been committed… now what?
I suspect a major factor in him remaining a student is that minorities are a protected species on today’s college campus. Say one wrong word and you are labeled a racist, academic life destroyed. Add the fact that liberal professors pound into their students “class warfare” and “hate America” on a daily basis and we have an environment ripe for tragedy. After enough indoctrination someone on the edge of personal destruction uses it as an excuse to carry their death wish public.
The liberal solution is always to increase gun laws, but as anyone can see the damage was done long before he planned and executed his method of revenge. One lesson that can be learned from this is perhaps college professors should think about all this hate they are spewing in their classrooms. Cho was a senior which means he had been exposed to several years of this. If college professors continue to push their liberal agenda in the classroom then don’t be surprised if one day this hate will return to stare you in the face before it pulls the trigger.
On your quest for wisdom you must understand that the society you live in is the society you have allowed to be created. Many warning flares were sent out, but few resulted in action. Even more frightening, perhaps serious action was not allowed to be taken. Only those that are involved know the truth. Political correctness has raised it’s ugly head again and the families and students at Virginia Tech have paid a terrible price for being stylish.
