Wisdom from the Realm

Woe to Virginia Tech

with 14 comments

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.

  1. Great post! I haven’t paid too much attention to the news yet as I figured a lot of what they reported early on would be rumors and guesses rather than facts. From what you’ve stated here I’d be willing to be that you’ve hit the nail on the head. I’m so tired of political correctness – especially if it results in things like this happening! Thanks for sharing some great thoughts!

  2. Political correctness is destroying our morality. Your article is quite revealing. God bless

  3. Your post hits the nail on the head. Political correctness run amok could be the death of us. Let’s not let it continue.

  4. while i agree with your post…i have no idea what really caused this guy to be a total crazy… And I have no idea how or why he was allowed to remain in class. It’s so hard to judge that with out really knowing the details and history of what happened, even though your guess seems quite possible.

    Either way.

    John 6:33 is what keeps coming to my mind in this situation.
    (major paraphrase since I can’t get downstairs to get my bible)

  5. Hi LC,

    As usual, good post. Just a side note, the reason the authorities couldn’t force this guy into a mental ward is that, back during the Reagan Administration, the Democrat Congress, wanting to suck up to the crazy vote, changed the laws in this area, making it much more difficult to force a person who wasn’t deemed a danger to others into treatment. Of course, this resulted in a great emptying of our mental hospitals, and a great increase in insane homeless people wondering our streets. All was blamed on Reagan by the liberal media, as one would expect.

  6. Hi momlovesbeingathome

    Thanks. News coverage has pretty much gone wall to wall which will probably extent for many weeks. Hopefully by the end they will figure out the dangers of political correctness. Who am I kidding, their final conclusion will be that it’s the guns fault and he was the victim.

  7. Hi miracleshappen

    The college campus is the breeding ground for political correctness so it only makes sense that it has come back to bite them.

  8. Hi wytammic

    Recognizing the dangers that stem from political correctness is a great first step. Events like this make people think and some actually swerve into seeing political correctness for what it is.

  9. Hi mz

    From all reports, it appears this guys actions had been a long time coming. After a little university PC indoctrination, he was clearly good to go.

    I am able to tap into my personal experience of when I had to endure university classes in guilt and blame America. Believe me, it’s not that difficult to make an educated guess about what played a part in this tragedy.

  10. Hi Grit

    I’m waiting to hear the reasoning of the administrators as to why he was allowed to remain in school. Normal thought suggests that the good of the many outweighs the good of the one… I got that from Star Trek. 🙂

  11. Hi LC,

    When the head doctors decided he wasn’t a danger to himself or others, the school had no alternative but to leave him enrolled. Besides, the stampede of lawyers rushing to the area would have presented a danger to the general public.

  12. Hi Grit

    Yep, I believe you are right.

    I saw the package he sent to NBC. Just another misunderstood loner who became a victim of society. Before it’s over the media will turn him into a cult hero.

  13. just came back to this post to say… you were right.
    the more i’m learning… it does seem that the way campus life is set up and the way the laws are regarding committing someone AND the PC issues… this could have been prevented. You are right.

    I experienced the indoctrination as well… or should i say had to endure the attempts. there is definitely a “accept everything” atmosphere attached to the cultrual relativism.

  14. Hi mz

    The indoctrination efforts by some of my liberal professors had an opposite effect on me. I could never understand why they were so angry as I look upon the sweet deal tenured professors enjoy. It’s not likely they would get the same opportunity from any of the socialist style countries they hail as the model we should follow.

    I made the naive statement to one professor. “If you like that system and way of life so much why don’t you move there where you no doubt would find life more enjoyable?” At the time I didn’t appreciate the result, but now I look back at that “D” with a smile and consider it my most prized academic achievement.
