Iraq veteran no longer wants to return to CCBC after he was barred for essay on killing
This is what happens when this society turns on it’s own.
These idiots don’t understand that controlling oneself is part of the process to maturity. Progressives and liberals don’t like that. They have no self control. Yet, THESE weaklings, these fiberless inhumane persons are the MAJORITY? These are the same people that have no courage to stand beside their wives or parents who become ill and require HUMANITY of them. These spineless individuals are the same people that believe that children should be EXPOSED to all sorts of fecal material, because they don’t have the fortitude to DISCRIMINATE against EVIL.
Be careful what you say, because these people will judge you insane and throw away the key.
They are the insane. But go tell them that.
These people will not take away your first amendment, but they will judge and DISCRIMINATE against YOU, because it’s EASY. They won’t take away your RIGHT to speech, but they will make you out to be crazy and fire you from your job. They will sight that you are a threat, when you have DONE nothing of the kind.
This is what you’ll get for honesty. EXCOMMUNICATION!
THESE low life are the terrorists. Along with the MUSLIMS. They are seditious. The make the bed for it.
Charles Whittington says he is fed up after college told him he did not provide requested psychological evaluation
Charles Whittington, a Baltimore resident, says he provided the psychological evaluation requested by college officials as a condition for letting him return. But in a Dec. 27 letter to Whittington, the college’s vice president of enrollment management said the evaluation was “not the documentation that was requested” and that the proper records had to be mailed by a “mental health professional.”
The letter from Richard Lilley said that if Whittington does not respond to the request for more complete records by Jan. 15, “we will assume that you have made the decision not to return to CCBC.”
Whittington said he has decided not to resume his studies at CCBC because he is fed up with the college’s requests. “I’ve done everything they asked me to do,” he said. “And now, they want more.”
The standoff began after Whittington published his essay, “War is a Drug,” in the Oct. 26 edition of the campus newspaper. The piece, which graphically described his fixation on killing enemy soldiers, raised concerns for college officials. He called war a drug and wrote that killing “is something that I do not just want but something I really need so I can feel like myself.”
At first, Whittington said he hoped to return to the college and would provide the requested psychological evaluation. He obtained his last Department of Veterans Affairs psychological progress report from May and a friend dropped it off to the college in late December.
President Sandra Kurtinitis said the college wants a fresh and complete psychological evaluation and that college officials thought they had made that clear to Whittington.
“We hoped the whole situation could be resolved quickly,” Kurtinitis said. “As much as this has pained Mr. Whittington, we still would hope that there’s a good way to resolve this that is respectful of him.”
Kurtinitis said the college has not received a response to the Dec. 27 letter and could still welcome Whittington back if he provides the requested evaluation. She said the college could also help Whittington pursue his education elsewhere.
“We would like to be helpful either way,” she said.
Deborah O’Doherty, a member of the nonprofit American War Mothers who has advised Whittington, said he has seemed unusually depressed lately.
“He shouldn’t have had to do this in the first place,” she said of the college’s demand for Whittington’s psychological records. “And now they want to change the rules. This is getting a bit extreme.”
Whittington’s last VA report, which he obtained Dec. 9 and shared with The Baltimore Sun, describes him as cooperative, pleasant, realistic and goal-oriented. It says he suffers from depression, inability to sleep and post-traumatic stress disorder, but shows no signs of suicidal or homicidal ideation.
Whittington was deployed to Iraq in late 2006 and said he left in early 2008 after a roadside explosion left him unconscious for days. The former petroleum specialist and infantryman received a medical discharge from the Army in August 2008.
On Dec. 22, O’Doherty dropped off a copy of the psychological progress report at the community college. Lilley sent his response five days later and attached a waiver form that Whittington could sign, allowing the college to request all of his medical and psychological evaluations from 2005 to the present.
“Once this document is accepted,” Lilley wrote, “you may be able to complete your Fall 2010 coursework on campus as well as register for Spring 2011.”
Kurtinitis said that, in fact, the college does not need all of Whittington’s records dating to 2005 and would accept a fresh psychological evaluation from a licensed counselor.
In the letter, Lilley noted that Whittington had not taken the college up on its offer to help him complete his fall 2010 classes online. Whittington says it seemed impractical to complete two art classes via computer and that his frustration with the college sapped his desire to complete an English class.
Lilley said that if Whittington does not respond by Jan. 15, the college will give him copies of his academic transcript and will refund the money paid by the VA for his fall 2010 tuition and fees.
“Allow me to say that in spite of appearances,” Lilley wrote, “we at CCBC wish you well in your academic endeavors whether here or elsewhere.”
Whittington said he is contemplating legal action against CCBC and that he will try to continue his education this semester, possibly at Anne Arundel Community College or a vocational school.
Veteran’s essay on killing
The following is the essay that Iraq war veteran Charles Whittington wrote for his English class at the Community College of Baltimore County. It was published in the campus newspaper Oct. 26:
War is a drug. When soldiers enter the military from day one, they begin to train and are brain washed to fight and to handle situations in battle. We train and train for combat, and then when we actually go to war, it is reality and worse than what we have trained for. We suffer through different kinds of situations. The Army never taught how to deal with our stress and addictions.
War is a drug because when soldiers are in the Infantry, like me, they get used to everything, and fast. I got used to killing and after a while it became something I really had to do. Killing becomes a drug, and it is really addictive. I had a really hard time with this problem when I returned to the United States, because turning this addiction off was impossible. It is not like I have a switch I can just turn off. To this day, I still feel the addictions running through my blood and throughout my body, but now I know how to keep myself composed and keep order in myself, my mind. War does things to me that are so hard to explain to someone that does not go through everything that I went through. That’s part of the reason why I want to go back to war so badly, because of this addiction.
Over in Iraq and Afghanistan killing becomes a habit, a way of life, a drug to me and to other soldiers like me who need to feel like we can survive off of it. It is something that I do not just want, but something I really need so I can feel like myself. Killing a man and looking into his eyes, I see his soul draining from his body; I am taking away his life for the harm he has caused me, my family, my country.
Killing is a drug to me and has been ever since the first time I have killed someone. At first, it was weird and felt wrong, but by the time of the third and fourth killing it feels so natural. It feels like I could do this for the rest of my life and it makes me happy.
There are several addictions in war, but this one is mine. This is what I was trained to do and now I cannot get rid of it; it will be with me for the rest of my life and hurts me that I cannot go back to war and kill again, because I would love too. When I stick my blade through his stomach or his ribs or slice his throat it’s a feeling that I cannot explain, but feels so good to me, and I become addicted to seeing and acting out this act of hate, and violence against the rag heads that hurt our country. Terrorists will have nowhere to hide because there are hundreds of thousands of soldiers like me who feel like me and want their revenge as well.
Americans and the WEST are scared of these emotions.
The liberals and progressives have tried to stamp this basic animal out of the MAN. THIS is what they are afraid of.
THE MAN. Even worse. A man with a conscience and one who has this type of supreme CONTROL.
