I have encountered many William Penns during my time in academia. Keep your mouth shut or your grade will suffer. One time, the teacher didn't like the smirk I wore on my face while listening to his anti-conservative rant and actually called me into his office after class. He hit me. I immediately left for the provost and found him there smiling at me when I entered. Turns out, he had connections high up in administration.MSU Relieves Prof. Who Went On GOP Rant:‘They Have Already Raped This Country’
A professor at Michigan State University has been relieved of his teaching duties after making anti-Republican comments in front of a college class, the Detroit News reported Thursday.
Writing professor William Penn said in videotaped remarks posted by CampusReform, an organization geared toward young conservative students, that Republicans "don't want to pay taxes because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could." In a nod to his students, he added that GOP supporters don't want to pay for college students' tuition.
Penn went on to slam former presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann.
"But Ann Romney a first lady? And remember this if you are just going to be a greedy bastard all your whole life," he said in the video, which was recorded by a student last week. "In order to be rich like Mitt Romney … you have to be, think about it, Mitt Romney."
"Anybody here want to be Mitt Romney? Him? Married to her?" he asked the class.
“The dean of the College of Arts and Letters and a representative from the provost’s office met with Penn, who acknowledged that some of his comments were inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive and may have negatively affected the learning environment,” the university said in a statement, as quoted by the Detroit News.
MSU spokesman Jason Cody told the newspaper that Penn will remain employed with the university, although his classes have been reassigned for at least the remainder of the fall semester.
you'd think they would've quit paying him.
Another time, the English instructor spent an entire class lecturing us on why we shouldn't vote for any Republicans in the upcoming November election.
There are many other incidents. I saw this story on TV tonight and realized that it is nothing new. American Academia has been commandeered by the Left starting way back there in the 60's.
Fight the bass turds. This guy should be fired for propagandizing on the public dole.
