Progressive group aims to oust Orson Scott Card from new position at UNC
A "silly thought experiment" has made "Ender's Game" author and homophobe Orson Scott Card very unpopular in his new position as a board member of the University of North Carolina public television, reports The Huffington Post.
Responding to a column Card wrote in May, in which he compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler, Progress North Carolina Action has launched an online petition for Card's removal from the two-year term advisory role:
Last week, Sen. Phil Berger appointed a guy to the UNC -TV Board of Trustees who compared President Obama to Hitler. Just four months ago, Orson Scott Card, a writer from Greensboro, wrote, "Like Hitler, he [Obama] needs a powerful domestic army to terrify any opposition that might arise."
Can you believe it? This guy who compares the President of the United States to Adolf Hitler is about to help oversee North Carolina's public television station. This is unacceptable and we need to let Sen. Berger know it.
