John Daly Resigns

John Daly Resigns

John Daly Resigns

GOODBYE, COMRADE CHIPS

“I have never been a quitter…But as President I must put the interests of America first…Therefore I shall resign the Presidency effective at noon tomorrow”—Richard Nixon.

“I shall not seek, and I will not accept the nomination of my party for another term as your president”—Lyndon Johnson. “Like the old soldier of that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away”—General Douglas McArthur. “Sorry, Jerry. It’s my way or the highway. The Rat-pack calls”—Dean Martin.  ”You dirty rats…” James Cagney.

So John Daly, adjunct professor of English at Warren Community College, Washington, N.J., is gone…done, finished…resigned, kaput. A quitter. He didn’t go out like Nixon or Johnson—can’t accomplish much in one year as an adjunct professor at a community college.

It takes longer than that to turn the average Alfalfa into Mark Twain. And there wasn’t any ballad about young college professors drinking their beer three times a day so he couldn’t slowly fade away. He sort of snuck out the back door while nobody was looking. It was Daly’s teaching philosophy that brought him down. His My Way or the Highway approach to education might have worked at Berkeley where Reds outnumber the red-white-and-blue, but not in the backcountry where real people do real work for real wages. And his rhetoric was so un-cool—Marxism 101 For Dummies went out with Fahrenheit 9/11.

But John Daly could have put up a better fight for his job than he did. He could have done a James Cagney. He could have turned his baseball cap around so nobody would know whether he was coming or going, hitched up his plus fours and let loose a broadside. Something like the following would certainly have gotten the media’s attention and would have been in keeping with his ideological proclivities:

“You dirty rats…you Capitalist swine…you fascist pigs…you rightwing imperialist dogs…you brown-shirted scum…I hope your insurance is paid up; I hope al-Qaeda gets every last one of you damned rascals…As soon as I learn the words to Old Soldiers Never Die I will be back…You can bet on that. You can take that to the bank; you can take it to Las Vegas. You have not seen the last of John Daly. I will take this to the highest court in the land; I will take it to Michael Moore; I will take it to Howard Dean! Freedom now! Freedom now!”

It’s a shame Daly didn’t have the guts to face his accusers. The uneducated masses out in the hinterland might not understand the complexities of this sorry affair. Daly is not some weak, spineless Bolshevik professor that sends threatening E-mails to 19-year-old college students in the dread of night.

 

Wait a minute! Isn’t that exactly what Daly was accused of doing? Yes—he sent a nasty E-mail to Rebecca Beach, a freshman student at Warren Community College; whether or not it was in the dread of night is inconsequential. Rebecca had sent out a few E-mails of her own. She had sent notices to the school’s faculty announcing the appearance of Lt.Col Scott Rutter, a decorated war hero. Rutter had been invited by a student group to discuss Iraq. Daly was a recipient of one of Rebecca’s E-mails and he blew his stack Maybe he thought the Colonel would show up with a barrel of Mickey Finns and a press gang. Hell no, he won’t go! Not John Daly! And he didn’t think anybody else should either!

Daly had believed (mistakenly) that Ms. Beach was an organizer for Young America’s Foundation (YAF). (Bolshevik professors believe groups like YAF are fascist organizations) So an enraged Daly sent Rebecca a return E-mail. It is too long to be quoted in full. It reads like one of Nikita Khrushchev’s anti-capitalist diatribes delivered to a besotted politbureau at 2 o’clock in the morning after the vodka was all gone, less, of course, Khrushchev’s charm, sense of humor and grasp of the English language.

Daly: “Your literature and signs in the entrance lobby look like fascist propaganda and is extremely offensive. Your main poster ‘Communism killed 100,000,000’ is not only untrue, but ignores the fact that CAPITALISM has killed many more and the evidence for that can be seen in the daily newspapers.”

Daly is either on George Soros’s mailing list or he has an overactive imagination. And then this: “…more than a million children…have died in Iraq from U.S.-imposed sanctions and war.”

Is he sure—more than a million? Where did he get that figure? Does he have access to the secret and unexpurgated diaries of US Congressman James McDermott (D-WA)? Does he have a hotline to Saddam Hussein’s lawyers? The Iraqis have made no such charge. There was more boilerplate in Daly’s pathetic E-mail than there was in the Soviet Union’s WWII Black Seas Fleet. Even Khrushchev’s eventually tired of that nauseous claptrap.

And then Daly pulled the pin from his grenade. “Real freedom,” he wrote, “will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors and fight for just causes and people’s needs.”

Good grief! Was he asking Beetle Bailey to turn his gun on Lt. Fuzz—on General Halftrack? It sounded like it. One could understand Corporal Klinger putting a grenade in Major Winchester’s bedpan, but suggesting that Radar O’Reilly ice Colonel Potter? What kind of sickness was that! It was too much! And by the time Daly came to his senses it was too late to put the pin back in the grenade. He had gone one step beyond what party apparatchiks can get away with on American campuses. He had advocated assassination. Ka-Boom! He would have to go. And he went quietly—one of Lenin’s running dogs slinking back into his Marxist doghouse.

Real freedom will come when students in America turn their guns on their Marxist and Islamo-fascist professors and fight, tooth and nail, for the one freedom without which freedom cannot exist, the freedom of speech.

A note of warning to John Daly types: the bond existing between enlisted men and officers in the US military is a lot stronger than the bond existing between students and Marxist professors on Kampus Amerikka.
