Something is completely wrong with this picture; College and University Professors across this country are actively trying to overthrow our duly elected president and inciting protests, riots and violence against anyone and everyone who voted for Donald Trump and Mike Pence. Is academia radicalizing lone-wolf college students to take to the streets in violation? Why? Why are they radicalizing our kids, and why on Earth are we paying the high-tuition costs allowing them to have a platform to do this?
There was an interesting article in Reuters on December 27, 2016 titled: “Pennsylvania professor under fire for ‘white genocide’ tweet,” by Ian Simpson which stated:
“A Drexel University professor, whose tweet that he wanted a ‘white genocide’ for Christmas sparked a fire storm of criticism from the school and social media users, said on Monday his comment was satirical. The white assistant professor of history and politics posted ‘All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide’ on Twitter on Christmas Eve, and he followed it up: ‘when the whites were massacred during the Haitian revolution, that was a good thing indeed’. The University publicity department said that although it recognized the right of faculty members to express their views, the comments were utterly reprehensible, deeply disturbing, and do not in any way reflect the values of the University.”
Actually, in many cases, those views do indeed reflect the University’s core staff and professors’ personal values. In fact, in our local area we too have a well-known university and the political rhetoric coming from our institution here is similar in radical hate-speech rhetoric. Some 158 faculty and staff members here signed an open letter stating that Donald Trump is a bigot, racist, misogynist, and that the President is anti-science, and anti-intellectual and further stating that the undersigned would “fight” against the President and his policies on behalf of their students.
The same day as the article above the Washington Post too had a story; “A professor called Trump’s election an ‘act of terrorism.’ Then she became the victim of terror,” by Peter Holley. That story originated at The Orange Coast College Republicans in Costa Mesa, California. The professor stated this in a lecture in the classroom, also stating that the Vice President was one of most anti-gay people in America. She also stated in the video that what we need now is a revolution since Trump didn’t win the majority and that ‘we’ outnumber them, them being the voters who elected Trump.
This is a completely scary situation – the angry left in academia claim to be intellectuals – but their actions around our country are more akin to inciting terrorist acts. If anything these authority figures are not with us, nor do they care about freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the right to own arms, the right to free contract, rather they want to rule the world by decree inciting violence to serve their political will.
