The Nazis Had Their Law Professors, Too

The Faculties at such “elite” law schools like Harvard, Yale, Chicago and Berkeley have made it perfectly clear to the legal community that they are fully prepared to hire war criminals, warmongers and torturers to their Faculties, and that they will then train their students to become war criminals, warmongers, and torturers.. This is an appalling situation. These so-called elite Law School Faculties are not fit to educate students. These so-called elite Law School Faculties believe that they are above the Law. The sheer arrogance of these so-called elite Law School Faculties knows no bounds.

We should all recall how Muhamed Ali and other Black leaders educated us all to understand the racist nature of the Vietnam War. Well Whitey is at it again. This time Whitey is exterminating Brown people in Iraq in order to steal their oil. The Lancet study just estimated that Whitey has exterminated over 100,000 Brown People since the start of this racist and genocidal war in 2003. If you have a look at my book Destroying World Order (Clarity Press: 2004), you can see that the figures for Whitey exterminating Brown people for oil in Iraq since the Bush Sr. War against Iraq in 1991 is approaching about 2 million Iraqis.

Speaking of Vietnam, in December of 1964, Johnson had 140,000 troops in that country, which is about what we have in Iraq right now. No matter who wins on Nov. 2, Whitey’s racist and genocidal war for oil in Iraq and elsewhere will go on for a long time. If Bush Jr wins, it is going to get a lot worse. We are in for a long struggle. Like Vietnam, this war will divert time, energy and resources from the domestic agendas that we all share in common to make America a much better place for Peoples of all Colors and Classes. The war will make that impossible. Indeed, one of the primary objectives of this war is to make that goal impossible.

For that reason, we non-elite Law School Faculties have to make it very clear to the legal community that for the duration of this war, we are not going to hire or train war criminals, warmongers and torturers. This is not some academic game where “collegiality” counts. In addition to the dead Iraqis, now over 1100 U.S. soldiers have been needlessly and senselessly killed. And racist, warmongering, war criminal law professors at Harvard, Yale, Chicago, Berkeley, Fletcher, Woodrow Wilson and Nitze/Sais , inter alia, are personally responsible for their deaths.

These 1100 dead U.S. soldiers were our sons and our daughters, our brothers and our sisters, our mothers and our fathers. At least we owe it to them to affirmatively reject hiring racist war criminals, warmongers and torturers to our Faculties. And we also need to make it clear to prospective law students that we are not going to train them to become racist war criminals, warmongers and torturers–in contrast to the elite schools such Harvard, Yale, Chicago, Berkeley, Fletcher, Woodrow Wilson, Nitze/Sais where they will be trained to become racist war criminals, warmongers and torturers. The Nazis had their law professors too.
