    Another blatant example of a liberal college professor showing affection for a tyrant:

    THE COLLEGE FIX

    It’s not often that I have the opportunity to comment on the goings-on of NC State, UNC’s friendly, down-the-road school of engineering and pig farming. But it seems that the Mao Infatuation Virus has spread to Raleigh. In an email sent to students in NC State’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS), Dean of the College Jeffrey P. Braden writes:

    “Finally, a bit of advice. The friends you make in college will be your friends for life, and will influence what you do and how you think throughout your life time-so choose wisely. Some of the best friends I made as a student were Plato, Henry David Thoreau, Mao Tse-tung, Margaret Mead, and Maya Angelou. My colleagues are eager to make similar introductions for you!”

    Let’s just briefly recount some of the Great Mao Zedong’s accomplishments:

    1. Caused approximately 40 million people to starve to death during the Great Leap Forward

    2. Instigated a reign of terror and chaos in the course of the Cultural Revolution

    3. Killed millions more during his purges of the 1950′s
