After Which, the Inspired Crowd Marched on the Administration Building, Demanding MTSU Change Its Name to "Sanjaya Malakar State"

MURFREESBORO — Elizabeth Coker stood in front of the crowd of 100 and said her ancestors had served with Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest [namesake of Forrest Hall at Middle Tennessee State University--ed] in battle and he was a hero to her.

"We have a right to have our heroes, just as you have a right to have Martin Luther King," said Coker, who is white. "You can't say that your heroes are any more important than my heroes."

By the way, a note of thanks to the Tennessean for clearing up any possible questions about Coker's race, since, y'know, a lot of blacks rode with Forrest, too. You can look it up. In the history books of many fine private institutions of secondary education.

Maybe not, Ms. Coker, but I can say that your heroes are one hell of a lot more evil, traitorous & generally despicable than your heroes. Is MTSU where Instapundit "teaches?"

Ms. Coker is an inspiration to Hitler admirers everywhere.

Really, how do people get to be so stupid? How can someone's mental wattage be so weak that it fails to light the bulb: hey, I just said that all heroes are equally valid!

Somewhere, someone must admire Robert Mugabe for driving white farmers off their land, and I'm so sure that Ms. Cracker is completely cool with that.

I don't remember the priest telling me when I went to Confession when I was a kid, "Well, Lance, it was wrong of you to disobey your mom and talk back to her like that, but since you set the table every night and do your homework and sent your aunt a birthday card, what the heck! You're a good kid.

Wikipedia has an interesting point of view. If only we had time machines.
