The San Francisco Board of Education gave the City’s Junior ROTC program a one year reprieve. That’s good, and a lot can happen in a year (one hopes). I found interesting, in a disgusted way, the comment from one of those trying to destroy JROTC:
Several people spoke out against the extension, reiterating the argument made last year that JROTC is a military recruitment tool.
“I’m really disappointed,” said Martha Hubert, a member of Code Pink who opposed the extension. Students “should have a choice of better things to do.”
It doesn’t seem to occur to her that the citizens of a free nation should have a right to have access to their military, and that their military should have a non-coercive right to have access to them. True to the liberal creed, she wants to shut down any opposition to her point of view.
