The Robert Jensen deportation fund

Here's another anti-American, anti-military screed from an American college professor. The number of college professors who are anti-American is stunning and a concern. What's even worse about this one, he's a journalism wonder the media is a bunch of liberal, whining, pathetic weenies.

In an article written for The Austin American Statesman, Jensen recently claimed that “The United States has lost the war in Iraq, and that's a good thing.”

While Jensen was careful to say that the loss of American lives is not to be celebrated, he insulted our soldiers deeply by saying that their deaths “haven't protected Americans or brought freedom to Iraqis.” Instead, he brushed off their service to our country as merely part of “a quest to extend the American empire.”

In his article, Jensen proudly states, “I welcome the U.S. defeat.” He also says “it's essential the American empire be defeated and dismantled.” Why? Because, according to Jensen, “In Iraq, the Bush administration invaded not to liberate but to extend and deepen U.S. domination.” He also says that the invasion of Iraq is “about control over the flow of oil and oil profits,” though he concedes that it is not about outright ownership of Iraqi oil.
