A liberal professor at Northern Kentucky University and ten of her students destroyed a pro-life display consisting of 400 crosses and “Cemetery of Innocents” sign. The professor, Sally Jacobsen (on the right in photo below), said tearing down the display was part of their right to free speech.
Witnesses reported “a group of females of various ages” committing the vandalism about 5:30 p.m., said Dave Tobertge, administrative sergeant with the campus police.
Sally Jacobsen, a longtime professor in NKU’s literature and language department, said the display was dismantled by about nine students in one of her graduate-level classes.
“I did, outside of class during the break, invite students to express their freedom-of-speech rights to destroy the display if they wished to,” Jacobsen said.
Asked whether she participated in pulling up the crosses, the professor said, “I have no comment.”
She said she was infuriated by the display, which she saw as intimidating and a “slap in the face” to women who might be making “the agonizing and very private decision to have an abortion.'”
And get this: she tried to argue that destroying the pro-life display the moral equivalent of tearing down Nazi displays.
Pulling up the crosses was similar to citizens taking down Nazi displays on Fountain Square, she said.
“Any violence perpetrated against that silly display was minor compared to how I felt when I saw it. Some of my students felt the same way, just outraged,” Jacobsen said.
She characterized the pro-life group’s display as silly, yet she expects her feelings to be taken seriously and given superiority over the pro-life group’s feelings. This is the typical, self-consuming attitude of the left: it’s all about them and no one else matters. Professor Jacobsen needs to grow up and realize that the world does not revolve around her.
