"(Enid) Greene said she was disappointed in BYU professors who protested Dick Cheney's visit to campus, calling them "self-appointed intellectuals."
"I'm not calling for BYU to fire them but if no one signs up for their classes ..." she said. "If they say the Vice President doesn't have anything to say we want to hear, I'm not interested in having my daughter learn from them."

What I read from this - Attacks on academic freedom, name-calling, censorship, moral superiority, confusing dissent with disloyalty, impugning fellow LDS church members because they are not Republicans, attempts to disenfranchise dangerous free-thinking temple-recommend holders, mixing personal religious viewpoints with politics, stating publically that if someone disagrees with you then there is nothing to be learned from that individual, setting a lousy example as a party leader of statesmanship, always having to identify an "enemy" no matter what the situation.
Questions to Enid - How old is your daughter? When does she get to think for herself?
I don't get it. Do Republicans really believe this? Readers, please enlighten me.
