Dear President Hurwitz:American academia has become so narrow minded that their concept of "diversity" is limited to race, and not political or social thought. This is one of the biggest issues that confronts academia today, yet colleges and universities have become so one sided as to be mere propagandizing or indoctrinating our youth. The fact that conservative and libertarian thought lives on is goes to show just how bankrupt Liberal thought is.
As an American, I am deeply concerned by your suspension of Dr. Angela McCaskill for signing a petition expressing her fundamental right to participate in a fully legitimate democratic process.
Your action represents a gross misconduct and abuse of power by someone who should understand and defend the most basic of constitutional rights.
Dr. McCaskill signed the petition on her own time, in her church. For the sake of democracy, I urge you to fully reinstate Dr. McCaskill immediately.
Furthermore, I ask you to publicly apologize to Dr. McCaskill for punishing her for simply exercising her constitutional right as an American citizen. So much for diversity of thought in American academia..."free speech for me, but not for thee" seems to be your message here.
