SCSU, is this the best you can do?

Regarding the Islamic Cartoons posted in St. Cloud recently,

Luke Tripp, a professor of community studies, said the same "conservative white" mind-set led to the election of U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Stillwater.

Tripp cited a history of racially motivated high school fights as evidence of the animosity that Somalis encounter here.

"There has been a series of hateful attacks against the growing Somali community since they began arriving here," Tripp said.
I have nothing against Somali Immigrants. Immigrants (legal ones) are always welcome, as far as I'm concerned. But I DO have problems with a blockhead college perfesser who is so intellectually vacuous and vapid as to paint those who disagree with him and don't vote for the candidate of his choice as RAAAACIIIIIISTS!If I was a student of Tripp's, I'd immediately demand my tuition money back, and call for his firing. Not for what he said, but because an imbecile such as Tripp has no business teaching college-level courses.

Additionally, if I were to equate any political ideology with racism, it would have to be the neo-socialist ideology that brought us the New Deal, racial quotas, and other such nonsense that are designed in such a way as to not uplift minorities, but keep them in an endless cycle of squalor. The endless cycle of inner-city poverty, the breaking up of once strong poor families and the encouragement of the absence of the father in poor families is an unconscionable and direct result of the liberal/neo-socialist agenda.

How do you like them apples, Mr. Tripp?
