Letter: Don’t want Ayers on MSUM campus

In response to Minnesota State University Moorhead bringing William Ayers on campus and praising him as “one of the country’s greatest minds when it comes to teaching for democracy and trying to make not only schools and universities but our whole society socially just.”:

It makes me regret I ever graduated from this university. To praise a terrorist, invite him on campus and to name him 2013 College of Education and Human Services visiting scholar at MSUM is a joke. I for one will not give one dollar or attend one event at MSUM until the university apologizes for this action and removes him from campus.

I would encourage other MSUM alumni to do the same. Please send emails and call the president’s office over this, too. Maybe they will get the idea that it’s not OK to endorse a terrorist, especially in these times.
