Teacher kicks Fort Lewis College student over GOP shirt

news041030_1.jpg

From the Durango Herald:

While talking with friends, a girl at his table asked to see the sweatshirt, O’Donnell said. After showing his table the back of the shirt and the phrase, people at a neighboring table asked to see it. O’Donnell said he knew someone sitting at the other table. While modeling for the other table, he said, a woman, later identified as Spero, approached from behind and kicked him in the calf.

O’Donnell did not know Spero, and the kick caught him by surprise. Not one to mind a good political argument, O’Donnell nevertheless said, “To physically take that out on someone because you disagree with them, that is completely wrong.”

After the blow, O’Donnell said, “She said she should have kicked me harder and higher.”

Update: The story is now on Drudge, but you heard it here first.

My friend has been ignoring me, so I figured the story was true. That prof was sure a marooon.

Reminds me of an incident at St. Cloud U. in Minnesota.
Several students were standing at a booth that supported Israel. A female Jewish professor, who supported the Palestinians, grabbed one of the students and slammed him against a wall. She had to be restrained and led away.

O’Donnell has filed a police report with the Durango Police Department and plans to press charges, he said. He also plans to file a formal complaint with the college, he said. Calls left for Spero at her home and office were not returned Friday.
The later remark said “if” he pursues this…HE MUST PURSUE THIS!

Lokks like the Left is resorting to physical violence these days in Colorado: Fort Lewis College student Mark O’Donnell experienced an unwanted lesson in hardball politics when he was kicked for wearing a cheeky FLC College Republicans sweatshirt. The …

If the charge against this prof. holds up in court, she deserves to be “kicked” out of the teaching field.
Can anyone explain what Polly meant in her post as to “the professor is a marooon”? or something close to that? If her intention was to say “moron”, Polly could spend her time better by learning to spell, rather than putting forth ignorant posts.
Just a wise word of advice to you, Polly.

Isn’t it funny how a liberal’s tolerance is anything but.
