Law professor slams liberals
November 12, 2013, 7:00 pm by Lance Reaves
Describing himself as the most conservative law professor in America, Jeffrey Addicott slammed liberals and the Obama administration during his appearance at the Llano Tea Party meeting Thursday.
Addicott was an active duty Army officer in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps, spending a quarter of his 20-year career as a senior legal advisor to the Amy’s Special Forces. He is currently the Director of the Center of Terrorism Law at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio.
"What makes big people is little government,” he said while calling socialism "inherently evil” and saying communism always fails because "it is false.”
The law professor has made over 650 speeches around the world. He often represents soldiers wrongly accused of war crimes, describing one such case Thursday where he helped acquit a solider facing incorrect murder charges.
When discussing terrorism, Addicott said the waterboarding accusations by inmates in the Guantanamo Bay detention camp were false, and described what he felt was a fallacy in the procedure.
"Our waterboarding program was a joke. You want to know what it was like? Go to Six Flags, pay 60 bucks and it’s the same effect,” he said.
Currently, Addicott said he believes Iran is the country’s biggest threat, and lamented the consequences if this nation obtained nuclear weapons.
