    Penn State Insults Veterans

    i want to apologize if this is a repost. if you haven't eaten yet, please take a look YouTube - Penn State Student Affairs: The 'Worrisome' Veteran at this video. i'm in utter shock right now. can you imagine what kind of outrage there would be if the subject of this video had been the "worrisome black" or the "worrisome gay person"?

    words can't adequately express my thoughts right now. As a child of a veteran, and as a human being, this make me want to puke.

    ......I twitch when Im stressed, or angry. I can't stop twitching. Im getting sick and tired of these colleges spitting on vets, and the military, like its the Vietnam war all over again. Ive been called too many nasty things as a member of the military, and a vet now by these Hitler like hate mongers.

    I'm not surprised...this is typical of B.S. being spued upon young minds at many, if not most, of our institutions of "higher education(?)"...

    Just listen to how these people even talk as in speak.
    Why do these people talk like that?

    Anyway what ever look at the source, one cannot be all that surprised with things being how they are these days.
    BTW these are the same people who do not see any point in anyone having 2A rights either even as they are allegedly intelligent persons with the as learned power of reason and logic.

    there are some dangerous ideas that institutions of higher learning are propagating. it would seem that they would treat an illegal alien better than our veterans. when did military service become a bad thing in this country? am I still living in the good ole' US of A? Citizens that bore arms built this country. It made me sick to think that people who sacrificed a lot, some even gave all, are now considered pariahs in the beloved country they served.

    Um...

    What was the [Edited] point behind that video? Was it to show that Vets have trouble with authority figures? Was it to show that Vets are supposedly dumb and can't hack it in an academic situation? Was it to show that if a Vet goes to college they can expect to be an outcast and have to work harder to get the same grade?

    I'm not sure how I feel about this video, maybe it is shock that a university would put something like that out. Maybe I am just not sure I can actually beleive what I just watched, or don't want to beleive it.

    I do know that I will be writing a letter to someone at that university as soon as I find out which list of 20 people I need to send it to.

    Edit: I hadn't seen the follow-up video that TerriLi posted. Now I know I am pissed off!

    I think the point was that vets are violent mentally disturbed time bombs waiting to go off so be careful how you treat them.

    Understand I don't believe this but that was the impression I got from the video.

    Perspective: Had the vid been titled "Worrisome Teenager" or "Worrisome Kid from the City," would (or should) teens or city folk be up in arms?

    that's exactly the point the video was trying to make.

    Penn State has just removed the video from their site, in an effort to lessen the damage. i guess some folks sent them some angry messages...

    Ugh. Well that helps narrow down who I give my money too when I get out. I would hate to snap in class with all my repressed rage and inablility to handle it. Dang military turning me into a rage-filled killing machine. Good thing they don't allow conceal carry in class or things could really get out of hand!!
