ROTC welcomed back

Timothy Kincaid

Much to the disappointment of some conservative commentators, ROTC is now being welcomed back onto some campuses. It turns out that ‘Liberal Ivy-Tower Elites’ don’t actually hate the military or the country or all that is good and pure, after all. They really meant it when they said that the reason that ROTC was banned from campus was due to their anti-gay discriminatory policies.

Who knew?

We already told you that Harvard is looking forward to a renewed relationship with the military. They are not alone. (Fox)

Other elite schools, including Columbia and Stanford, also hinted that they now would be willing to extend open arms to the military.

“We now have the opportunity for a new era in the relationship between universities and our military services,” Columbia University President Lee Bollinger said in a written statement.

Richard Levin, president of Yale University, said the school is “eager” to begin discussions about lifting the ban on ROTC.

Well, there goes one grousing point.

Well, the sky really did fall—right on top of at least one sector of the anti-gay industry.

Maybe ROTC will be banned at fundamentalist Christian colleges now. Time to enforce the Solomon Amendment. Funny how every law these people pass comes back to haunt them (cf. the Equal Access Act).
