Muslim Immigrant Gets It - Liberal Professor Doesn't

Via Now You Know. A Kuwati muslim student faces intimidation and harassment from her teacher. Her offense is speaking out in defense of America:

The Americans by contrast came in to liberate us and asked for nothing in return. I love this country for the freedom it provides and for rescuing Kuwait’s liberty in the first Gulf War. 12 Years later, America once again has selflessly protected my country and my people by removing Saddam Hussein.
This kind of hate speach really offended her instructor at an American Community College in Los Altos (Near San Jose), California.
Professor Woolcock didn’t grade my essay. Instead he told me to come to see him in his office the following morning. I was surprised the next morning when instead of giving me a grade, Professor Woolcock verbally attacked me and my essay. He told me, “Your views are irrational.” He called me naïve for believing in the greatness of this country, and told me "America is not God's gift to the world."

The best news in this piece is that the good professor teaches in a community college. That is one rung above wearing a paper hat and asking, "do you want to Supersize it?"

IMPORTANT UPDATE! Addressing the comments -
1. Gordon the Cranky Neocon (me) wrote this, not Chad.
2. I grew up 20 miles from this community college. I felt that gave me special bashing rights. Look, I went to San Jose State University just across town and I considered it a four-year community college. I am not an elitist.
3. I MEAN NO OFFENSE to CC students or generally, their faculty.
4. If I had a point it would have been that this "professor" is dime-store Chomsky. He probably gets turned away at the door of U.C. Berkeley Celebration-Of-Socialism-In-Interpretive-Dance seminars. As he heads back to his '74 Volvo, he can hear them whispering and tittering. He chokes back the sobs.
5. I am used to ranting on my own site, which usually reaches 22 people. As such, my ranting usually doesn't provoke reaction.
6. I specifically apology to Cindy and ccwbass.
