Now and then, truth and justice do triumph:
When given the choice of standing alongside a decorated military hero or a bunch of militant LGBT activists – choose wisely.
The leadership of Hampden-Sydney College learned that lesson the hard way.
On May 19 I reported to you that the Virginia all-male college had chosen not to renew retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin’s contract – ending his stellar, nine-year career teaching leadership and ethics.
Less than six hours later, the college reversed its decision and offered the retired general a one-year contract....
The LGBT activists had wanted Hampden-Sydney to fire Boykin over a joke he made to a gathering of conservatives. They accused him of advocating for violence against gays and transgender people.
“The first man who goes into the restroom with my daughter will not have to worry about surgery,” Boykin told the crowd.
Remember always, Gentle Readers: Leftists and their mascot groups have no sense of humor. Then gauge how much of a risk you’re willing to take for the sake of a wisecrack, or the transient pleasure of a little plain speaking.
