Lead by example, not ‘war’

Nicole Bouley

In response to âÄúThe conservative moodâÄù letter, I completely agree that it was wrong for a professor to belittle and attack a studentâÄôs views and work. In fact, it is shameful. However, I am equally disappointed and disturbed by the proposition at the end of the letter calling on conservatives to âÄústart … kicking liberal ass.âÄù Then independents were prompted to âÄúchoose a sideâÄù and an outright declaration of war was made. This is also shameful. Adding fuel to fire is not the answer. Instead of polarizing, both sides need to compromise. In times when the other side acts inappropriately, stand up to be the better person. Nicole Bouley University undergraduate student
