I was brought up to believe that getting an education, especially a “higher” education, including advanced collegiate degrees, implied that you were more intelligent. The process is supposed to broaden your thought processes, deepen your understanding of the world around you. Apparently, those beliefs could not be more wrong.

Thursday, in the New York Times, there was an insidious article by one Kathleen Belew. Ms. Kathleen Belew is an “a postdoctoral fellow in history at Northwestern University, is at work on a book on Vietnam veterans and the radical right.” She is also a “Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in History, is also a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis. She received her Ph.D from Yale University for ‘Theaters of War: Paramilitarism, Mercenaries, and the Racist Right from Vietnam to Oklahoma City.’ While at Rutgers she will be teaching history courses, including the ‘Aftermath of the Vietnam War’ and ‘The American Vigilante.’”

Ms. Belew is obviously highly educated. So much so, that she now deems it her place to grace the rest of us with her opinions on the Vietnam war, Vietnam war veterans, veterans in general, and best of all, how those of us who have gone to war and come home with brain injuries, have the potential to become racist terrorists.
