NC Supreme Court Candidate Stands Up for College
Students and Faculty Rachel Lea Hunter Offers
Assistance to Those Abused By the Left
Cary, NC. - Rachel Lea Hunter, a candidate for North Carolina Supreme Court Associate Justice, has issued an open letter to college students and faculty throughout North Carolina. The letter explains the extreme bias on college campuses and offers a solution to those who are abused for presenting their ideologies in hostile environments.
" I am deeply concerned about the level of harassment and discrimination that is taking place on many of our college campuses. The colleges promote diversity and so there is, except in the one area in which it counts - diversity of thought ," suggested Rachel Lea Hunter.
Hunter continued, "Colleges were intended to be places of learning and academic freedom. However, our colleges have become places of indoctrination, all in the hopes of producing good little worker bees who will do as they are told. The colleges certainly don't want individuals who can think for themselves."
The campaign pointed to a recent case at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where a Christian student group had its First Amendment protected rights violated by the institution. Hunter stated that the abuse has gone even further at UNC.
"Last year, a professor decided to personally vilify and attack a student who dared to express his disagreement with the homosexual lifestyle. These are just a few instances of what is occurring at many of your universities," said Hunter.
Rachel Lea Hunter became fully aware of many abuses by the left towards conservative and libertarian students and faculty by taking part in the first ever 'College Abuse Forum', sponsored by a Congressional candidate in Durham.
Hunter agreed with the position taken by Rep. Walter B. Jones, Jr. (NC-3), a strong defender of college students' freedoms, who believes that the people should demand accountability of school administrations.
The Hunter campaign has placed form on its web site (www.rachelforcourt.com) for students and faculty to submit information to Rachel Lea Hunter if they feel they have been abused on college campuses.
"I pledge to support any professor or student with a legitimate claim. And, in the event I'm elected, the other attorneys at my firm will likewise be ready and willing to enforce your rights," said Hunter.
Finally, Hunter made it clear that she believes all viewpoints should be freely expressed on campus. However, she "has not heard of many cases of liberal abuse by the right, but would work to defend everyone's free speech rights."
