So if a military veteran goes to a university they should avoid announcing they served in the military to avoid attracting attention to themselves? How about the military recruiters who have to go on campus to try to recruit students into the officer field and are verbally and physically attacked by both students and faculty?

Above are a few examples of the fine open minded examples of the liberal university students and faculty.

I didn't say that at all.
You're purposely reading into my statements that which was not stated.

I don't think any universities or colleges or towns are anti- or pro- anything. I would think that you've lived long enough to find that there is everything everywhere. There are liberals and conservatives, young and old, yin and yang, etc.

If you want to make something into an issue, and apparently you do, you will find yourself with an issue. Show me some credible links about recruiters being physically and verbally attacked.

See, you're just itching for a fight. Go find one, it's not going to be with me.
Maybe this is why you'll find exactly what you're looking for in your life.
Your life will be easier without that very big chip on it.

It's all up to you.

I posted three links above which you appear to have decided to ignore.

You cannot say that the San Francisco Chronicle and the Seattle PI are conservative nor unreliable sources in this subject matter. You've admitted to being liberal and a military veteran. Fine. University of Denver also had a military veteran liberal college professor. His anti-American and anti-military speeches were famous. However what got him off the position with the university was his plagerism. Ward Churchill
