Can you add closing bracket to title [fix title].

I consider this to be a story of interest on Freerepublic:

1. The professor is authoring a book on Obama
2. He is vice chair of the Democratic Party of West Palm Beach, Florida
3. An example of another academic professor gone wild.

What job does a degree in “Intercultural Communication” or “Political Communication” prepare you for?

Oh wait, I know:

You could become a political officer attached to a military unit.

You could work in a business as an AgitProp man, making sure the company toed the Party Line.

You could do community organizing.

If you denounce enough “wreckers” you might get to attend a Party Congress.

How many more days will this issue be in the news?
There were other students in the class who did not stomp on the picture.
The guy was suspended (reinstated now) because the adjunct professor though he was threatened.
Of course I think the adjunct professor over reacted and I also think the student did as well.

“Areas of Specialization: Intercultural Communication...”

OFFENDING CHRISTIANS DURING HOLY WEEK is somehow an area of specialization? How about this genius jackass try a stomp on mohammad next? If he’s seeking to inspire a reaction and discussion, I guarantee those freaks will not respond as kindly or thoughtfully.

They could have pared the whole thing down to “Indoctrinates on how to live with a chip on your shoulder.” Kind of sums it all up for me.

I saw the article. There is also an article about the Governor of Florida investigating this situation. I imagine if FAU receives State Tax Dollars as funding, the Governor has a right to investigate this situation.

But one way they could apologize for the incident is to FIRE THIS PROFESSOR>

If he has tenure, then move this office to a restroom on campus. [The University would get in trouble with that, but it would send a message]

I wish I’d been in the class. I’d have written “Mohammed” on a piece of paper and double dog dared her to stomp on it while we all filmed her for a YouTube upload.

Looks like he is busy using his authority to oppress his students beliefs.

The website:

Palm Beach Democratic Party

lists this professor (Dr. Deandre Poole) as an officer of the Democratic Party.

According to this website, he is Vice Chair of the West Palm Beach Democratic Party.

Yo could be on track to earn a degree in Chemical Engineering and still have to take one of these stupid classes. These classes come under the heading of required classes that make you a well rounded citizen.

I’m sure it never occurred to him that he was doing exactly what he claimed to be researching. Leftists are usually blind to their own hypocrisy. I was a political science major at Indiana University, and know exactly how this works. I had a professor who was supposed to be teaching “Comparative Political Systems” but it was really “Soviet Communism Here and Now.” He was all about “workers controlling the means of production.” I wish I’d had the balls to suggest that he was right, and that in fact, students should control the means of production of grades as well. I could have had the class vote ourselves A’s and headed to Nick’s for some cold beers. I’m sure he would never have seen it coming.

Fake PhD from a phony school in a worthless discipline. Frauds like this are exactly why it is wise to ask “in what, from where?” when someone tries to pull out the PhD trump card.

“Deandre J. Poole Instructor Email: dpoole3@fau.edu PhD, Howard University Areas of Specialization: Intercultural Communication, Leadership and Communication, Political Communication Deandre Poole teaches courses in intercultural communication, ethnicity and communication, leadership and communication, and organizational communication.”

In other words, he is in the only profession that allows one with no abilities save that of drooling to become a college “professor”.

A degree containing courses from this idiot is worth just about as much as a promise from the Obamadork/cretin.

Hey cretinman, want a course in REAL communication?

One with something called math? Correlation? FFT?

Come my way, quota boy and we’ll blow both cells of your diminutive brain out.

Oh, I’d say he’s a great communicator. Look at how well he communicated his contempt for Christians. I seriously doubt that it was unintentional, and I have no doubt that millions of leftist secularists just love this story.

I don’t like what he’s communicating, and I think he’s a scoundrel, but he’s darn good at communicating.

“why don’t he put a pic of muhammad on teh floor and demand his muslim students stomp on it?”

Because it would be blasphemy to draw a picture of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and that would be culturally insensitive.

He is listed as an Instructor, so it is highly unlikely that he has tenure.

I have a son on that exact track; so far he has been able to avoid these garbage classes, but I’m sure he got an earful of it in his reqired English classes.
