A new video uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday shows a professor at a public university slamming Republicans as old, white individuals who want to keep black people from voting.
The eight minute video, released by college news outlet Campus Reform, reveals Michigan State University Professor of Creative Writing William Penn opening the first day of class with an anti-Republican rant.
If you go to the Republican convention in Florida, you see all of the old Republicans with the dead skin cells washing off them, said Penn. They are cheap. They dont want to pay taxes because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could.
They dont want to pay of your tuition because, who are you? Well to me you are somebody, he continued.
Penn then appeared to accuse the Republican party of backing voter identification laws as a plan for getting black people not to vote.
This country still is full of closet racists, he said. What do you think is going on in South Carolina and North Carolina. Voter suppression. Its about getting black people not to vote. Why? Because black people tend to vote Democratic.

Prominent DU tree hugged fool.
The “dead white people” label is prophetic; when they say more white people died than were born last year, and whites still refuse to breed, then this is exactly what will happen. Republicans will become a thing of lore (like Whigs and Bull Mooses).
Outrageous. Does this guy own a gun?
...and people pay thousands of dollars to seat their children in this communist idiot’s classroom...
Good Lord? Is this really the DU WilliamPenn? Or am I confusing him with William Pitt? Rarely go to DU. Can’t afford the disinfectant.
The end of our people, and hence our nation, is a lot more consequential (like, a LOT more) than the end of the GOP, which is, thank God, at hand.
Punks like this pos had better pray that their anarchy never comes.
Who created the Ku Klux Klan, enacted Jim Crow laws, stood in opposition to the Civil Rights bill, blocked school integration, and turned dogs/fire hoses on demonstrators? Democrats.
Don't let silly things like facts and history get in your way.
Their utter intellectual stupidity and inability to grasp reality knows no bounds.
This “scholar” apparently does not trust the power of logic, reason, or critical thinking. Mindless ranting seems to be his preference. Any students considering a course “taught” by this loon should take note.
He’s a hater - he has no business teaching young people.
What a way to start a creative writing class.
“Hes a hater - he has no business teaching young people.”
Of course he says he will not take it out on those in his class but outside of it he would...ok professor BS, bring it on, I am waiting for you to take me on. Guarantee one walks away and it will not be you albeit I am twice your senior.
In a sane country, this “Professor”, would be fired immediately.
But what, exactly, is 'creative' about a stock-standard 'GOP is evil' rant? These people are in such lockstep they should be bolted together.
This is why I keep telling people that they have to vote in the races for college administration. Democrats held almost every single university administration slot in the last election for no other reason than conservatives are too lazy to vote in those races. If all of the people who voted for Romney had bothered to vote in the state level education and college administration races we could have won every last one.
In Michigan straight ticket voting doesn’t get the job done. If there are more GOP candidates than Available seats, those races are skipped.
Its a little like trying to fight the nazis while leaving their weapons factories and training facilities intact. We lose every battle we don’t fight and the democrats fight every last battle.
Not dead white people. Dead white people is just a Democrat wet dream. It will probably end up being dead Democrats.
Of course this fruitcake professor is feeding at the public trough. He teaches at a taxpayer supported state university (Michigan)
He would last two minutes in the private sector at a real world productive job
Well, that does it; now they’ll promote him to provost.
How stupid do parents have to be to spend thousands of dollars they could use in their retirement so that their kids can listen to a Communist rant in “Creative Writing” class!
Not only should this clown be fired for not teaching the subject he was hired to do, but the person who hired him should also be fired.
Isn’t this a pattern for him? I think he has been in this path before.
Strip the public funding and I think parents will care a lot more.
"He is horrible. The class is unbelievably unorganized. At the beginning of the semester he told everyone not to take notes because there wouldn't be an exam. He then gave an exam that was so difficult that the curve was 50%. He is creepy and misogynistic. Picks on the attractive girls in classes. Penn presents a facade of being liberal minded and claims to love women, homosexuals and people of all race, but then progresses and perpetuates detrimental stereotypes about all three. He claims to love gay men because they "dress well and appreciate art." He refers to women as "puntas" and cougars."
Scratch a liberal, reveal a little fascist hypocrite.
Nah, I I’d rather fight these a$$holes for the country that I love.
It ain’t over till its over!
Funny to note that ALL of his objections about Republicans were PERSONAL ATTACKS.
He never ONCE mentions policy. Not once.
it’s “Hate Republicans BECAUSE they’re ‘Republican’. They’re just baaaaaaad people...”
“His students thoroughly despise this prick:”............
Then why are these students taking his stupid classes?
Seems to me there are other “elective” classes available.
Can writing only be creative it is liberal. Here is a link to an outline of an English composition course at Buffalo College. (http://i.imgur.com/FdHCESx.jpg) It almost makes you wonder if there is a course somewhere that requires you to get zotted on Free Republic to get an A.
I couldn’t read the article because of all the fricking ads. Is this guy tenured?
Not only is it blazingly apparent this ‘professor’ isn’t fit to teach his subject, he clearly isn’t capable of hunting ‘closet racists’ — unless he hasn’t looked in a mirror.
MSU is actually fairly conservative as major universities go. Lots of farm kids go there to learn the latest agricultural technologies and sciences.
“He would last two minutes in the private sector at a real world productive job...”
He wouldn’t last ten heartbeats on my street.
You folks in Michigan are paying for this.
Send your kid to a state college, so they can be turned into little America-hating commie rat bastards at the taxpayers’ expense.
It is difficult to believe that parasites like this so-called “professor” actually are hired and get paid. He should be reported for child abuse. What a commie tool!
The business school at UM is still predominantly conservative btw. The rest is simply totalitarian leftist like the rest of our Universities are.
Heck, you'd be shocked at what they teach at Hope and Calvin.
“Great teacher. He really seems to care....about what I have no idea.”
Exactly. He's merely mouthing what most college lib arts profs believe. He should still be fired, but I'll give him credit for blowing off and letting us know what a jerk he is.
Wow, what a fruitcake this so-called “professor” is.
If you read the comments, it appears they didn’t know until they took one of his classes. Read the comments (well, you have join to see them all, so I didn’t see them all).
But the one and two stars have a lot to say.
Melanie Foster and Jeff Sakwa, candidates for Michigan State University Board of Trustees, released the following joint statement today:
News broke this morning of a Michigan State University professor who went off on a political rant during his first day of class. The full video, which can be found online by clicking here, shows Professor William Penn telling students "If you go to the Republican convention in Florida, you see all of the old Republicans with the dead skin cells washing off them." He went on to say, "They're cheap. They don't want to pay taxes because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could." Professor Penn further stated that Republicans are, "a bunch of dead white people, or dying white people."
While Professor Penn is certainly entitled to his personal opinions, the classroom is not the place for him to be airing his political views. The students at MSU need to be focused on preparing themselves for their future professions, not on the political opinions of their professors.
It is imperative that the Board of Trustees at MSU take this matter seriously. We call for Michigan State University to complete a full and fair investigation into this matter to ensure that the classroom does not become a platform for political propaganda. We will be watching what happens with this incident to ensure that the University takes the appropriate actions.
It is incidents like this, among many others, that have inspired both of us to run once again for the Michigan State University Board of Trustees. We need to bring a common sense, conservative voice to this overwhelmingly liberal board to ensure that all points of view are represented.

“The end of our people, and hence our nation, is a lot more consequential (like, a LOT more) than the end of the GOP, which is, thank God, at hand.”
I agree, but the end of our people isn’t so far off. It isn’t even a violent end; just a passing through with fewer and fewer children until there are no more.
May be surprised, but I kind of doubt if any discipline against him will be forthcoming from MSU.
Did anyone notice the name William Penn? This could be an alias he uses to give himself a bogus connection to a historical figure.
"The dumbing down of America is complete. Note this video was taken in Boston, the education mecca of the world!" is what I wrote over the link when I posted the video.
Then one of my liberal "friends" post this image with the comment, "sorry, had to share..."
And my wife took care of the rest.

Sorry, I don't recall the source of the exit poll data but I trust my memory of the data itself.
