Continued bad news for the left is good news for America,
For five years, Yale Law School has fought to restrict military recruiters from its job fairs because of the Pentagon’s policy that bars openly gay or bisexual people from the military. But with the federal government threatening to withhold $350 million in grants if the university does not assist the recruiters, that fight will all but end on Monday.
After an appeals court ruled in favor of the Defense Department on Sept. 17, the law school said it would allow recruiters from the Air Force and Navy to participate in a university-sponsored job interview program for law students on Monday afternoon. For now, the legal battle to stop the recruiters is over, said Robert A. Burt, a Yale law professor and the lead plaintiff in the case.
“The judges who hold office at the moment disagree with us,” Professor Burt said. “We must wait for history to vindicate our position.”
Isn’t it funny how these “principles” got thrown out the window when money became an issue? Then again, hypocrisy is a virtue for the American left.
