Heidi Czerwiec UND ROTC

Sane Americans read the news on their laptops this week and wondered how it was possible that college students were left “afraid” and shaken by pro-Donald Trump chalk scribbles at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. The answer can be found by looking at those in charge of so-called “higher education.” Take, for instance, University of North Dakota college professor Heidi Czerwiec, who made national news for vowing to call 9-1-1 every time she saw ROTC training in the quad outside her window.

Anyone who has been to a university with an ROTC program knows that cadets are unmistakable. One would have to be an idiot — or a poetry professor at UND — to not know the difference between ROTC cadets who are getting ready to train and, say, Jim-Bob McCooter wandering around campus with an AR-15 after he’s had one too many to drink.

Does Professor Czerwiec call 9-1-1 when she sees a cop on campus? Readers should not put it past her since the university had already informed faculty and staff via email that ROTC training would happen.

Regardless, in addition to a disgusting voicemail she sent to the ROTC program ( “You’ve created terror. You’ve achieved it.”), she wrote a letter to the Grand Forks Herald that said:

“I look up from my office computer to see two figures in camo with guns outside my window. My first thought is for my students’ and my safety: I grab my phone, crawl under my desk and call 911. The dispatcher keeps me on the line until someone can see if ROTC is doing maneuvers.

I can barely talk—first, with fear, and then with rage when the dispatcher reports back that yes, in fact, I’ve probably just seen ROTC cadets, though they’re going to send an officer to check because no one has cleared it with them. They thank me for reporting it.

A few minutes later, a university officer calls me back—not to reassure me, but to scold me for calling 911. He says ROTC has permission to do this exercise. When I tell him that this was news to 911 and that they encouraged me to call whenever I see a gun on campus, he seems surprised.

He also tells me that ROTC will be doing these exercises for the next couple weeks. So I reply that I guess I’ll be calling 911 for the next couple weeks—and I will. Every time.

So I reply that I guess I’ll be calling 9-1-1 for the next couple weeks and I will. Every time,” Czerwiec wrote. “It’s not my job to decide whether people carrying guns at school are an actual threat. It’s my job to teach and to get home to my family. It’s already highly inappropriate to conduct unnecessary military maneuvers in the middle of the quad. But with school shootings on the increase and tensions at UND running high, it’s especially irresponsible. We’re already under financial and emotional attack. We don’t need to feel under physical attack, too.”

There’s only one problem with Czerwiec’s letter — it’s wrong. The University told WDAZ-8 that it did go through all the proper channels to clear its training. An email saying, “ROTC cadets will train in and around the quad, and may carry military equipment, including dummy weapons” was sent to staff one week before the training took place.

Do you know who misses emails on ROTC training? Answer: The kind of woman who would call an ROTC training center and say “You’ve created terror. You’ve achieved it,” because she was the only dunce on campus who didn’t read her email or have the common sense to know what ROTC cadets look like.

Perhaps Rob Port over at Say Anything Blog said best:

“Her angry voicemail left for the ROTC seems downright unhinged, as was her threat in the letter to the Grand Forks Herald to call 911 every time she sees the ROTC. She [now says] … that she only meant that she would call when she sees something ‘suspicious that is not obviously part of a drill,’ but that wasn’t at all clear from her letter. Words mean things. You’d think someone working in a university English department would understand this.”

You are sadly mistaken, Mr. Port. Professors like Ms. Czerwiec are more interested in creating “Safe Space America” than preparing students for the real world.

    1. Stay tuned for more updates at douglasernstblog.com as your host chronicles the decline of Western civilization. 🙂

      I laugh on the outside, but I’m crying on the inside.

  1. Heidi probably didn’t realize Fargo is the designated epicenter of Rooskie Nuclear Retaliatory War Weapons Plans. Grand Forks AFB’s ICBM missiles and Minot’s nearby nuclear-laden B52s could probably whip any “terror”- inducing ROTC squad on earth. You want terror? Fly over Hanoi with my B52 crew with SAMS locked on and tracking..

    I’m also certain that if Rooskie poets had read any of Heidi’s semi-professional crapola: (“I praise the Circumference of his Shaft”) they would immediately launch an orgasmic approximation of Armageddon with ROTC Units fighting it out. And there she is: an alternative universe jackwagon cowering under her desk, knowingly tearing up her request for tenure while she burns her “Poetry” Card.

    If she had slighted a mid-Latvian Lesbo Transvestite Transfer Student, Heidi would be long gone by now. She’d be down at U of Missouri applying for Prof Click’s Lady Gaga course. Her “Safe Place” is the Unemployment Office.

    1. “You want terror? Fly over Hanoi with my B52 crew with SAMS locked on and tracking.”

      I think that certainly qualifies. 🙂 I almost wish you were sitting in this professor’s class just so you could intellectually tear her to shreds in front of the students when she inevitably complains about ROTC drills.

      “I’m also certain that if Rooskie poets had read any of Heidi’s semi-professional crapola: (“I praise the Circumference of his Shaft”) they would immediately launch an orgasmic approximation of Armageddon with ROTC Units fighting it out.”

      Now I’m really kicking myself for not finding that on my own and incorporating it into the blog post, Greg! Haha. Good find. I wish her students good luck getting a job after college. “Hi, I’m really good at writing penis poetry. I had professor Heidi Czerwiec at UND. Please hire me.”

      “If she had slighted a mid-Latvian Lesbo Transvestite Transfer Student, Heidi would be long gone by now. She’d be down at U of Missouri applying for Prof Click’s Lady Gaga course. Her ‘Safe Place’ is the Unemployment Office.”

      That one drew blood. If this were a boxing match between you and Political Correctness, your power-punch connecting percentage would be through the roof.

    2. Douglas:

      I’m afraid these old soldier’s words are all I’ve got left. Agent Orange has caught up to me and I’ve been given a 1yr to live sentence due to a rare, killer disease called Pulminary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). It slowly increases heart pressure until your muscle gives out and you can no longer make enough O2–so your ticker just explodes.

      Man, I’d sure like to be here when that happens! I’ll have it video’d and send you a copy or put it on UTube for all to enjoy. Chances are Heidi will be Department Chairperson by then and in line for a Pulitzer for Penis poems and a Peace Prize for her other academic speciality: 1950’s pinup queen, Bettye Page’s, lasting contributions to our arts, politics and culture.

      This ironic downturn of events has teleported me well beyond simple sarcasm or my everyday,chronic suicidal depression. Heidi, Melissa, Freddie, Michael, Hillary, Socialist Bernie etc., are daily reminders of a USA gone somewhat askew.

    3. “I’m afraid these old soldier’s words are all I’ve got left.”

      I’m willing to bet you offer those in your life much more than words, although the words you’ve used here have certainly carried a lot of weight. I’m always happy to hear your opinion going forward.

      “Agent Orange has caught up to me and I’ve been given a 1yr to live sentence due to a rare, killer disease called Pulminary Arterial Hypertension (PAH).”

      I’m not sure if you’ve been screened to see if you’re eligible for a lunch transplant, etc., (my understanding of the condition is that the lungs aren’t working properly, which causes a back-flow of blood into the heart) or if you’re on a waiting list, but if not then I’m sorry to hear that. I hope readers who come across your post take a moment to pause and ask if they’ve been taking their own good health for granted.

      “This ironic downturn of events has teleported me well beyond simple sarcasm or my everyday,chronic suicidal depression.”

      Without getting into personal details, there are people very close to me who have been in a constant battle with depression for years. If you’re in need of an ear, you’ve always got one here. If you don’t mind, I may even shoot you an email in the near future based on what you’ve given WordPress.
