University of Washington Craps On Hero

Hat Tip - Jarhead's Firing Range

The University of Washington student senate voted against a proposed memorial to alumnus and WWII hero Marine LtCol "Pappy" Boyington. See the full article here.

The fact that he was a Marine, and white, was just too much for them. LtCol Boyington spent a number of months being tortured in a Japanese POW camp, shot down a record number of enemy planes, and was eventually awarded the Medal Of Honor and the Navy Cross.

Student senator Jill Edwards, according to minutes of the student government's meeting last week, said she "didn't believe a member of the Marine Corps was an example of the sort of person UW wanted to produce."

Absolutely Disgusting
