MSU Prof. To Class: ‘Republicans Are Dead White People Who Raped This Country’
Conservative Videos ^ | 9/4/13 | staff

Posted on 09/04/2013 4:44:28 PM PDT by Nachum

Michigan State University (MSU) officials will investigate anti-Republican comments award-winning professor William Penn was secretly recorded making to his literature class on Thursday, a school spokesman told Campus Reform Tuesday evening. “At MSU it is important the classroom environment is conducive to a free exchange of ideas and is respectful of the opinions of others,” Kent Cassella,an MSU spokesman wrote. “MSU is thankful we’ve been made aware of the situation,” he said, referring the secret video recording which was viewed by hundreds of individuals on Tuesday. “We will be looking into it,” he added.

The only dead white person I see here, is the one there- taking money and teaching nothing.

I hope people will remember this next election day. Those college administration races are important and easily winnable if we try.

Damn. Those Republican White People be pretty energetic if they be rape'n even after they are dead.
I must have missed that Zombie movie episode. Here I thought they just liked brains. I guess I need to matriculate at MSU if I want to learn these things.

Boy...I'll bet this helps Miss State in their fund raising.

This guy is looking for headlines. Unfortunately, the only headline he may create is the one of his loss of tenure (if he even has it).

The left-wing nutbags know all about those stats. However, the new left-wing nutbag meme is that the two parties did a “switch” one day and the Republicans became the racists. Get it? One day, everyone apparently agreed to switch. And no, I’m not kidding.

This review of a literature professor speaks for itself:

Here is the deal, Professor Penn is an *sshole. He is okay... I mean like he does tear your work apart and offer good critiques, but like he is not a good professor. Like, I never felt inspired by him, or like I really wanted to write something good. I also felt like a lot of people take fiction writing for a genre class and really just want to learn, but he treats you like you should already know. And he does picks favorites. Period. The girl that sat next to me sucked at writing, and got her papers torn a new one, never followed the assignment which he hated, and still did better than me because she reminded him of his daughter. Which, whatever.

Excerpt of one of the other comments. Typical liberal:

Penn is racist, sexist, ignorant, and downright offensive. Though he can write--from the one story of his I've seen--he is clearly self-obsessed and spends every single lecture he can verbally masturbating.

My kids had a half dozen a-holes just like this in high school. The only principle they held to without fail was 'whats in it for me', essentially mailing it in until they could collect that nice pension.

All of them started out with lip service about wanting free and open discussions but immediately marginalized any kid who didn't tow the CTA line on every issue discussed.

Most kids recognized this and dutifully parroted the required points of view. Woe to the one or two who didn't.

Actually, from what I hear, the dead vote Democrat far more frequently than Republican, so that probably applies to the raping as well. Probably pillaging too, for that matter.

Yeah, I read stories like that all the time skeeter. Makes me glad my kids were out of school before things got so bad, but I live in a conservative area of South Texas.

I know the colleges are pure liberal anymore and a kid needs a good moral background to survive it. Also know they often have to just ‘play’ along with the professors to get a passing grade. Training in ‘deception’ we could call it!

At MSU, and most other universities, there is a “free exchange of ideas” as long as they agree with the professor’s.

We had 2 good ones last time, one being Doc' Steele and I don't think he got beat that bad, but he didn't win.

These seats are a must, forget about the Boneheads and BellaPelosi's that fackata carnival will collapse, setting the tone in a school is more important culturally...

Er ... Ward Churchill. He’s that forgotten.

W.C's quite a character from the Way-Back Machine alright.

Like Churchill, this new William Penn joker is also supposedly connected to an American Indian past--shooting arrows into the nasty palefaces on every side.

"William S. Penn (born 1949) is a mixed-race Nez Perce author and English professor at Michigan State. His work explores the issues his father faced coming to terms with his Indian heritage. His work may be classified as magical realism.--Wiki

Here's another one of Penn's students voicing an opinion about the tenured professor's classroom performance.

"Penn is easily the worst professor I've ever had, Creative Writing or otherwise. Any of the people who gave him anything over a 2.5 on this site were clearly part of his suck-up posse. Penn is racist, sexist, ignorant, and downright offensive. Though he can write--from the one story of his I've seen--he is clearly self-obsessed and spends every single lecture he can verbally masturbating. Rather than tearing down students' work in order to encourage them to do better like Diane Wakoski does, Penn merely insults his students' writing like a bully on a playground. He does it to impress his posse and feel superior. I can't believe I not only paid for the class, but also for the piece of **** course pack we used literally twice. I don't know how this man got tenure. Someone should do something about this asap."

All we need is for the same people who vote for the republican presidential or senate candidate to vote in the state level education and college administration races. If we do that we can win every one of those seats by wide margins.

In Michigan straight ticket voting skips those races, so vote straight ticket if you like but then vote in those races.

Hey, give the man a break!

He is a professor of Creative Writing, right?

He is just being “creative” in writing about US history. After all, he does not want to be guilty of plagiarism by teaching/writing about actual history, right?
