Former commander of America’s elite Delta Force, General Jerry Boykin, received news from Hampton-Sydney College that he was being terminated because of comments he made concerning Obama’s demands that schools should comply with the new bathroom laws that basically render restrooms and locker rooms genderless.
According to a World Net Daily article, Boykin voiced his disapproval of bills that would allow men to go into women’s toilets, locker rooms and showers. The article quotes Boykin,
“When I said in Orlando that ‘… the first man who goes in the restroom with my daughter will not have to worry about surgery,’ the LGBT community once again came after me, claiming that I was calling for violence against #transgender people.”
Of course the militant LGBT community jumped all over his comment, claiming the distinguished military hero to have called for violence against transgender people. They demanded Boykin’s job be terminated through emails, phone calls, and social media.
In another article, Boykin states,
“I was referring to perverts who will use these policies to get into locker rooms with girls and women, and I object to that,”
“Nonetheless, I gave the LGBT community just what they needed to pressure the college leadership to terminate me and they did.”
Hampton-Sydney is one of the few all-male schools left in the country and has a rich history as Patrick Henry and James Madison were some of its first trustees. According to its website, the institution for higher learning has this as part of their mission: to form good men and good citizens in an atmosphere of sound learning.
The plaque at the front gate says:
“Come here as youths so that you may leave as men.”
And says this in its honor code:
“The Hampden-Sydney student will behave as a gentleman at all times and in all places.”
And yet those in leadership positions of the college who are responsible for firing a military hero should be mirroring what they propose to teach. Instead they act like a bunch of wimps, and do more harm to those young boys at the school who may actually believe that the college is there to train real men.
What they taught all the boys at that school is not to stand on principle, but to go with what will please the whining crowd of special interest groups. Moreover, those who decided to terminate Boykin have displayed a disregard for societal norms that are necessary to a moral civilization.
What could be more chivalrous or gentlemanly than to stand up for women and children who have and undoubtedly will suffer sexual assault due to an idiotic bathroom law that defies common sense. This is the intention of General Boykin… to protect women and children.
Hampton-Sydney’s intention is to run and hide from any confrontation with a bunch of men and women who are confused about their own sexual identity, and desire for the rest of the world to climb on board and celebrate their confusion.
The all-male college just neutered themselves in front of the whole country by proving that they no longer stand for the principles on which they were founded. Hampton-Sydney is nothing more than buildings filled with boys who will be searching for examples of real men, you know, the kind that: stand for what is right, fight the enemy head-on, don’t back down from confrontation, and know how to protect women and children.
The school has now lost an authentic man, professor, warrior, and Christian example. Hampton-Sydney will now be celebrated as a bastion for the LBGT crowd, but the students will be the losers.
