Some shots go over the bow to get your attention. Others go into the bow to send a clear message. Still others blow the bow clean off the front of the boat. Such was the case last week, when the Supreme Court of the United States voted eight/zero to uphold the constitutionality of the Solomon Amendment. Not only did this unanimous opinion support a vital piece of federal legislation, it also sent a hopeful signal, which the nations highest court may now, at last, return to adjudicating, rather than policy-making. To review, the Solomon Amendment allows federal funding to be withheld from any higher-ed institution that refuses to allow military recruiters on campus. A consortium of 36 law schools challenged this legislation at the Supreme Court, claiming the militarys dont ask, dont tell policy, a Clinton compromise to avoid discrimination, was, yes thats right, discriminatory. And so, to avoid being discriminatory, these schools, pillars of diversity and self-righteousness, concluded that they should be allowed to bar the military from their students and grounds, while continuing, of course, to feed fully, freely and frequently at the nations funding spigot. Fortunately, the Court saw through this liberal dose of academic bravo sierra, and delivered a well-deserved, full-body smack-down, sending a clear signal to the cap-and-gown clan, too many of whom perch comfortably and insulated, free to spout-off to the world, in ways that may damage America, ironically, the very right to do so, secured for them from our very beginning, by the freedom-generating and enforcing power, of our great military. Colleges and universities who bar military recruiters are guilty of stunning hypocrisy. For starters, these pompous, opps, sorry, campus diversity-saints are perfectly content to host all other employment recruiters, including those representing evil big-business, while discriminating against efforts to recruit, in this case-specific, attorneys, to serve as officers in our military. But heres where the real hypocrisy comes in. This whole effort to keep the military off campuses, law school and others, has nothing whatsoever to do with alleged discrimination within our armed forces. Thats simply a wafer-thin smoke screen, fooling no one. The real issue motivating far too many university professors and administrators is the fact that they neither like nor respect our military. The very force that ultimately makes all that we have, and do, possible. A military that continues its proud calling to serve and sacrifice, to remain ever loyal to our nation and President, to preserve our freedom, no matter the cost, and, at present, to the protection of our allies, as well, from militant aggression, the very-real global fight against terrorism, now at hand. Making the Supreme Courts affirmation of the Solomon Amendment even more compelling, both houses of Congress, then, voted overwhelmingly to renew their support, citing, at this time of war, the constitutional obligation of the Government to provide for the defense of the Nation. In the Courts opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts made it clear that if universities choose not to treat military recruiters in a manner equal to other employers, those schools are (quote): free to decline federal funds. Going forward, it will be interesting to see which, if any, universities cling to their elitist discrimination stand, and which drop the charade and cave, when federal dollars are on the line. Denying campus access to military recruiters, enables universities to pretend that a powerful defensive force is neither desirable nor needed, discouraging students from military service, and bolstering utopian day-dreams, while providing welcome aid to our jihadist enemies, who wait patiently for any and all signs that our great nations resolve may be weakening. Fortunately, all of our nations schools and most of our teachers understand and support the need for military recruiting and a strong national defense. But for those within our nations campuses and classrooms who still dont get it, youre hereby assigned to detention for remedial instruction on the incredible role our courageous armed forces have played in maintaining our freedom, ensuring our limitless opportunities, and enabling all those in this great nation who teach, to do so, in English.
