Breaking News: U.S. Supreme Court delivers blow to anti-military recruiter universities.... rules in favor of the military....

Another great ruling by the Supremes, with Chief Justice Roberts writing the decision. It says a lot that the decision was unanimous in favor of allowing military recruiters to continue their time-honored practice of recruiting on college and university campuses.

Hopefully, this case and ruling will be only the first among many to address and strike down the liberal-elite bias its strangle-hold on academia that holds captive-audience students and their academic rights hostage to secular-humanism, multi-culturalism and anti-American propaganda in their academic classes.

It is also a big blow to the anti-war left who love to tout that military recruiting is down---even when it is not.

More below and here. Another informative column, "Military Recruiters Win," at humaneventsonline , including this excerpt: "Colleges that accept federal money must permit military recruiters on campus according to the United States' Supreme Court.... The high court heard the case, Rumsfeld v. Forum for Academic and Institutional Rights, late last year and, even then, the justices "signaled" they had few objections with the law...."

Another response to the new ruling, at cnsnews, states that: "The American Center for Law and Justice, a conservative civil liberties group, called the ruling an important victory for the military and national security. "At a time when our military is trying to attract the best and the brightest of our young people, it makes no sense to bar recruiters from college campuses -- especially when federal funds are used to support these schools.

Students who are considering serving our nation in the military should not be treated like second-class citizens," said Jay Sekulow, the ACLJ's chief counsel. "The unanimous decision by the Supreme Court ensures that the armed forces have an equal opportunity to recruit our nation's best and brightest students without placing military recruiters at a distinct disadvantage...."
"Supreme Court Backs Campus Military Recruiters"

"The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that colleges that accept federal money must allow military recruiters on campus, despite university objections to the Pentagon's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays.

Justices rejected a free-speech challenge from law school professors who claimed they should not be forced to associate with military recruiters or promote their campus appearances.
Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the decision, which was unanimous....

Roberts, writing his third decision since joining the court, said there are other less drastic options to protest the policy.

"A military recruiter's mere presence on campus does not violate a law school's right to associate, regardless of how repugnant the law school considers the recruiter's message," he wrote...."
