Skip to comments.MSU Prof ‘Relieved Of Duty’ After Verbal Attack On Republicans ( Next Ward Churchill ? )
Posted on 09/06/2013 8:41:02 AM PDT by george76
The Michigan Republican Party called the remarks political intimidation against students.
This is a public institution, funded by taxpayers, and this type of bullying is inexcusable. By bringing his personal views into the classroom, Penn has directly isolated and threatened young Republicans into silence. His use of political intimidation is shameful and should not be tolerated.
Penns remarks were captured on video by a student and posted online by Campus Reform,

Aside from being a blatant out-and-out liar.
Paid leave? Most teachers do get paid leave no matter what the charge.
What’s so funny about this story is that he, too, claims to be an Indian. What is it with crazy academics claiming to be Indians?
If youre a Republican, forgive me, Penn said. If your parents are Republicans, forgive me. They wont and I dont care.
That’s the kind of apology I would expect from a rabid leftist. FIRE HIM NOW!
He should have been fired the day this disgusting behavior came to light. Whoever put this blatant hater on paid vacay on the taxpayers’ dime should also be fired.
My bet is that Republicans in MI pay a lot more taxes than Democrats do because Republicans actually work for a living instead of depending on the government for their existence.
Wouldn’t these rants qualify as “hate speech” that is banned on many college capuses? This prof would fired if he made remarks like this about gays or injected Christian beliefs into his class. Shouldn’t same hate speech code apply here?
We all know this is going on all over universities...its just nice to know that kids can record these nuts and tweet it for the rest of the world to hear.
Sorry, guy. But victim's industry franchises go to minority folks only. Being an employee of a university is not enough.
Most all get paid leave - even while investigating of molesting children. At least here in CA. Unions ensure that.
At $146k/yr this extremist ideologue (and non diversity celebrator) is essentially part of the 1%. He needs to go protest hisself.
And then Professor William Penn was relieved of duty and his classes assigned to others, the university announced Thursday.
In other words, Penn can take the semester off until this controversy blows over.
If you would like to see him fired, don't hold your breath. According to a website where students rate professors, he already has tenure.
Once you get tenure, you have to practically commit a crime to lose it.
The sad story is this goes on everyday in varrying degrees at most college campuses. When my son was an ROTC student in college a Political Science Professor gave him a “C” in a class where he easily deserved an “A”. My son was and is convinced that theprofessor had a bias against ROTC students because he knew they were mostly “conservative”. He appealed the grade, but you know how that went. Today however, I am proud to report that he is a very successful Army Special Forces Major and is currently attending the Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey CA where he is carrying a 4.0 average and will attain a Masters of Science Degree next June with Professors who aren’t of the liberal political pursuasion.
Guilty white liberals are always looking to identify with minorities in order to have cred with the progressive movement.
Claiming Indian ancestors is the easist way, it doesn’t require dark skin and proof against the claim is difficult.
It’s a shield against their true heritage, which they reject.
Pray for America to Wake Up
...........no, the sob needs a 100,000 hours of sensitivity training and then, upon graduation from that, they hand him a shovel and give him a ditch to dig............
Your story make two thoughts come to the fore front of my already cluttered mind.
1) Your son's experience in getting a C, and then his future successful en devours reinforce my belief that most colleges/unis are a complete waste of time.
2) I am waiting for the story about how students get fed up with these types of professors and they start clocking them for their behavior. A couple of these types get their a$$e$ whooped and their behavior would curtail itself.
The problem is the Colleges are infested with these liberal idiots, many of whom were demonstrating in the streets in the 60’s and 70’s. The Administrations of most colleges are of a similar liberal pursuasion, and the worst part is these guys have “Tenure” which makes firing them next to impossible.
For educating Indians, primarily for proselytizing Christianity.
Perhaps the "crazies" still consider the US an illegitimate country and have some sort of OCD-style need to legitimize their continued presence in the "false" country by claiming some link to one of the identifiable preceding tribal societies?
I am amazed and completely dumbfounded that this “university” did the right thing
