Professor On Leave After Forcing Students to Vote for Obama
Frontpage Mag ^ | 09/20/2012 | Daniel Greenfield

I don't know why she's on leave, isn't that the whole point of the modern educational system? Professor Sharon Sweet just cut out all the empty talk and got right to the whole point of college... which isn't to get an education or a good job.

A college professor has been placed on leave after she allegedly forced her class to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the upcoming elections. Early last week Professor Sharon Sweet at Brevard Community College (BCC) allegedly told students to sign a pledge that reads: “I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.” The pledge was printed off of GottaVote.org, a website funded by the Obama campaign.

What is moderately strange is that Sharon Sweet appears to be a math professor and yet she can’t do math well enough to realize that math is not on the side of Obama.

Sharon Sweet’s student ratings are downright poor and there’s general agreement that she’s impatient, rude and doesn’t like questions.

Will not explain things more than once. Not willing to help you with the work. Makes you feel stupid if you do not think the way she does.

and

She is an awful person. Told the class no excuses you miss a test its an F. My sister passed away, I got an F, for attending her funeral. Sad Sad Lady. She doesn’t explain and doesn’t help

and

From day one she had an agenda other than math studies, not being totally black ( looking ) I was in her sights constantly .

But don’t count on Sharon Sweet staying down for long. As a Senator in United Faculty of Florida’s local chapter, the local faculty union and the only one with the authority to bargain with the college, she’ll be back soon enough.

This is yet another reminder of why monitoring the campus and the work of the Freedom Center’s Student Center is so important.

Sharon Sweet. Not so sweet, after all.

I continue to be astonished that meatheads like this get gigs on college faculties.

I pity her.

Diversity and affirmative action will have their day; she’ll keep her job once the smoke clears.

She shouldn’t be on leave. She should be fired.

“she’s impatient, rude and doesn’t like questions.”

Typical member of “Holder’s People.” She’s basically stupid so she tries to “pass” as a math “professor” when she’s anything but!

I suspected and it has now been confirmed that she is Amish.

I wondered how she could have only an associate degree and be allowed to teach in a community college. I have now seen the answer today, she is Amish.

How pathetic this all is.

That site has an interesting business model: You can have your mugshot removed by paying these people off. Isn’t that extortion?

We need to make the Hatch Act binding upon all Government employees.

If your paycheck comes from Government at any level, and you politic on the job the taxpayers are footing the bill for, out you go.

If they fire this idiot, she can always head to Columbus where they’d probably make her president of OSU!

If high schools, colleges and universities here fired all the socialists and outright Marxists teaching (aka “INDOCTRINATING”) our kids, parents would have to home school!

Hey, that sounds like a way to save the kids — and the country!!!

Wiki: “A professor is a scholarly teacher; the precise meaning of the term varies by country. Literally, professor derives from Latin as a “person who professes” being usually an expert in arts or sciences, a teacher of high rank.[1] In much of the world, including most Commonwealth nations (such as the United Kingdom) and northern Europe professor is reserved only for the most senior academics at a university, typically a department chair, or an awarded chair specifically bestowed recognizing an individual at a university.
“A professor is a highly accomplished and recognized academic, and the title is awarded only after decades of scholarly work. In the United States and Canada the title of professor is granted to all scholars with Doctorate degrees (typically Ph.D.s) who teach in two- and four-year colleges and universities”

And even more importantly - how can anyone who understands even the most basic math vote for Obama and the Democrats because of their destructive deficit spending

Hmmmmm. I didn’t know that. I did see that button to press but didn’t know one had to pay.

Click on 'Remove Mugshot' in the menu bar at the top of the page:

1.You might already found your mugshotsworld mugshot page in google or other search engine. If not, use the search feature at the top of this website to find your mugshot page.

2. Once you find your mugshotsworld.com's mugshot page, you will see the removal link at the top and bottom of your mugshot. Click on that removal link to open the order page.

3. Fill the payment details to make an order for mugshot removal. If your order is success, your will see the success page and all the information will be removed within 24 hours. If there is any issue in processing your payment, applicable error message will be displayed at the top in red color; correct the payment details and submit again.

Outrageous! Funny too; it reminds me of that old Monty Python sketch...

I must say, after reading about this when it happened, I'd expected to see a crossed-eye “giant purple people eater.” Imagine my utter amazement when I discovered the Amish are behind this affront!
