Ethics and Morality

Dear Mike Adams (of Townhall.com),


I'm concerned about some of your recent columns.  I'm afraid your attack on the Left may be causing them undue grief.  Surely you've heard many of their complaints.  Apparently, your attacks on them are unfair. 


1.) Your use of satire baffles liberals because they're not accustomed to intelligent humor.  They've been angry so long, they could never appreciate great wit.  Maybe if you bashed Israel or evangelicals, liberals could enjoy your true playfulness.


2.) Your insistence on moral absolutes catches them off guard.  They've been bathed in university 101 (moral relativism) for so long that the only line they can say with absolute conviction is that absolute conviction is wrong. 


3.) Your attack on gay rights activists is hurting a lot of feelings (they're very sensitive about these kinds of things.)  They, like all Americans, have a right not to be offended.  Due to your satire, they can be heard at night crying in their gay bath houses and this is keeping most of San Francisco from sleeping well, making for an irritable west coast crowd.  If you're not careful, the gay rights activists will report you to their sister organization--the ACLU (Angry Calloused Lunatic Universalists). 


4.) Your tough stand on logic--that people should actually try using it when arguing--is bound to earn you the label "sardonic meanie."  Have you not learned by now that people need to feel good more than they need to think clearly?


5.) Your relentless pointing out of a Jihadist working at a major university might be calling too much attention to the poor job universities are doing educating students.  Their strong point is indoctrinating.  Teaching students to hate America is an important task, so Marxists and Jihadists must team up, and your articles could be making it harder for them to unify.  Your comments could also reflect negatively on Islam.  (Besides, the religion of peace might send someone to kill you to prove they are as tolerant as the next religion.)


I'd like to suggest another course of action.  Stop fighting for reason, morality, and free speech.  Instead, hit the speaking circuit, call America evil, defend Hugo Chavez, tell U.S. citizens what Uncle Sam really wants, write a lot of books on how America has oppressed countries worldwide...O wait!  Sorry, Chomsky's already on that assignment.


On second thought, keep being an outspoken, gun-collecting, cigar-smoking, column-writing, conservative professor who uses satire like Rosie O'Donnell uses doughnuts--in abundance!

PS--If you ever need to get in good standing with the wacky university crowd (forgive my redundancy), you could confess that all along you've been a black oppressed female trapped in a white man's body who would now like to live as the man-hater that you're just now mustering the courage to become.  (You might at least get a scholarship named after you.)  Or you could tell them God made you a conservative who likes satire, and they should accept you the way you are and stop being Satiricalophobic.

Dear Prof. Trost [e-mail deleted],

I'm sorry you had to be subjected to the public shame of having your email exposed to the world through Mike Adam's article.  We all know the extreme left is really tolerant and would never want to quiet the views of the right.  How dare the right force it's views upon the rest of us and promote hate.  After all, shouldn't young, inexperienced college kids be made to think that homosexuality is perfectly normal?  How dare anyone suggest otherwise.  Do those nutties on the right think this is a free country or something?

Thanks for being so tolerant and teaching the next generation that abnormal behavior is really normal.  The universities have done so much for our country.

Dear OCR Editor:

Isn’t it ironic, perhaps hypocritical, that Americans are so outraged about the abuse of Iraqi soldiers, while few have likely ever spoken a word against rapes and beatings that take place daily in American prisons?  When's the last time these concerned Americans called for an official to step down because of our poor prison system here in the States?  Do the bleeding hearts really care for the hurting, or are they just posturing politically?

Dear Mr. Noam Chomsky,


Your foundation for right and wrong isn't the same as mine.  And even if it was, what if my moral intuition deems your moral intuition inferior?  What sort of worldview leaves us in this quagmire?

Thanks for helping university students see that education is really secondary while they're students.  And thanks for helping men everywhere see women as sex toys.  It's people like you that give feminism such a good name.


Anna's response on October 28, 2005 [Warning—following contents may be offensive]

"Hey Kevin,

It's interesting that you consider an event focused on educating women about

their bodies and sexuality as something detrimental to education. Why is only

this event showing students that their education is secondary, and not every

other event on campus? Also, this event is about WOMEN learning about

THEMSELVES, the ways their bodies work, and how to achieve org*sm through

SELF-LOVE. In explaining this event to people, I have sometimes said, "If you

were to ask any man if they had ever had an org*sm, none of them would say,

'Well, I came close once....,' 'I'm not sure,' 'Not really,' 'Well, yeah

once,'" and so on and so forth. These are responses you could get from many,

many, many, many women. It is unfortunate that there is such a lack of

understanding about female sexuality in our culture, and we are hoping to

help people learn about the history and technology of female org*sm, the

anatomy of the female body, the location of the only PURELY SEXUAL ORGAN IN

THE BODY, the clit****, as it is CENTRAL to a woman having an org*sm, and how

to have sex SAFELY. This is hardly about learning how to get women to work for

men. Rather, this is about educating women on how their bodies work and how to

have a positive, wonderful, beautiful relationship with themselves. I hope

this helps soften the initial blow a little bit. Thanks a lot for your

feedback; I really appreciate it. Let me know if you have any questions or

further comments. I would love to hear back from you.

Anna Potter"
