    A Fresno State professor who called the late Barbara Bush “racist” soon after her death Tuesday, and said she was glad “the witch is dead,” continues to face fallout as donors mull ceasing donations to the institution. Randa Jarrar, an English professor at the school (also known as California State University at Fresno), sparked outrage Tuesday just hours after the former first lady died at age 92, writing a number of tweets attacking Bush and the family. “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F*** outta here with...

    A professor at Northeastern University in Boston is under fire after he was recorded during a public lecture saying he “wouldn’t mind” seeing President Trump dead. “Sometimes I want to just see him impeached. Other times, quite honestly — I hope there are no FBI agents here — I wouldn’t mind seeing him dead,” Barry Bluestone, a professor of political economy, said during a Jan. 31 public event called “The Rule of Law in a Time of Polarization,” Campus Reform first reported.

    In a case that drew national attention and accusations of "political correctness run amok," a federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a former LSU professor fired in 2015 for, among other things, using vulgar language in her classroom. Teresa Buchanan, who was a tenured education professor, claimed LSU violated her First Amendment free speech rights and also alleged the university's sexual harassment policies are unconstitutional. . . . In a lengthy decision, Dick said Buchanan's use of profanity and discussions regarding her own sex life and the sex lives of her students in the classroom "do not constitute First...

    Our daughter called last night from ESU (Enormous State University). Turns out she studied a lot for an econ test. Struggling as she is in the class, she EARNED a 71. The dippity doo-dah prof then announced the flunkers would get curves on their grades to increase them above D's and F's - but none for the higher achieving students.

    A Fresno State professor sued by students after interfering with their anti-abortion messages on campus says he did nothing wrong – and didn’t pay $17,000 in a settlement despite an announcement made by Alliance Defending Freedom on Thursday. “I admitted absolutely no wrongdoing, and I did not have to pay a dime,” public health professor Greg Thatcher said Friday. The costs were covered by his insurance company through the National Education Association, he said.
  • Law Professor: No, it’s Not OK to be White!

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    The failing New York Times published a very racist op-ed on Saturday, an article written by a (black) law professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University. The professor’s name is Ekow N. Yankah and the op-ed is rather strangely titled “Can My Children Be Friends With White People?” Obviously, the “professor” concludes that no, his children cannot be friends with white people, and that’s somehow kosher, as race-relations under Obama-the Unifier reached historic lows and we’ll just have to follow into the steps of the dear leader, now with that white supremacist in the White...

    A controversial Drexel University professor, who is already suspended from campus over comments he made following the Las Vegas Massacre, is now arguing that the recent Texas church shooting was specifically caused by “whiteness” while also attacking news outlets who reported on his previous disgusting comments about the attack in Vegas. In an interview with the left-wing show Democracy Now!, professor George Ciccariello-Maher once again shared his disgust for all white people while specifically pinning the blame for the church attack on the existence of whiteness itself. “Whiteness is never seen as a cause, in and of itself, of these...

    An email sent by George Papadopoulos last year provides the first hard evidence that the former Trump campaign adviser was friends with Sergei Millian, an alleged source for some of the most salacious claims in the infamous Steele dossier. The Washington Post reported Tuesday night that Papadopoulos sent an email to Trump aide Boris Epshteyn last September seeking to set up a meeting with Millian, who he reportedly described as a friend. Epshteyn told The Post that the meeting did not occur. Papadopoulos, a 30-year-old energy consultant, is in the news this week because it was revealed that he pled...

    A lecturer at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) explained on Thursday to her students that US President Donald Trump was to blame for the murderous shooting spree that took place in Las Vegas a week ago. One of the students filmed her statements and passed the footage onto the group Campus Reform, which uploaded the footage. “Right when he got elected, I told my classes, three semesters ago, that some of us won’t be affected by this presidency, but others are going to die,” the lecturer, Tessa Winkelmann, who teaches history, says. “Other people will die because of...

    This is the crap they are teaching kids these days. A Pennsylvania State University professor recently wrote working hard was part of the white ideology and is therefore racist. These liberals sure seem to be pushing for white genocide?   Townhall and Campus Reform reported: Pennsylvania State University-Brandywine professor Angela Putman recently asserted in an academic paper that the notion “if I work hard, I can be successful” is merely a product of white ideology, reports Campus Reform. Angela Putman conducted a study to critique and examine “ideologies within college students’ discourse that are foundational to whiteness.” Her resulting conclusion...

    Mike Isaacson, a professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice who made numerous jokes about dead cops and openly supports Antifa, has been placed on administrative leave by the school. The college contacted The Daily Caller Friday with a statement from college president Karol V. Mason to announce that the professor has been placed on administrative leave following TheDC reporting on Isaacson’s comments. The report prompted users on social media to participate in a popular #FireMike Twitter hashtag calling for the college to take action against him. “Many of you may be aware of recent statements made by...

    A Professor from the University of Tampa was slammed for issuing a statement declaring that Texans deserved the destruction caused by storm Harvey because they voted for Donald Trump. As reported by Campus Reform, Kenneth L. Storey, professor of sociology, tweeted Sunday “I don’t believe in instant Karma but this kinda feels like it for Texas. Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesn’t care about them.” When Storey was called out on the hideous tweet, Storey responded to say he was “only blaming those who support the GOP,” further adding that in his opinion they should “do more to...

    A UC Berkeley energy professor resigned from his science envoy position with the Trump administration Wednesday, citing the president’s “hate-filled rally” in Phoenix Tuesday, his recent remarks on Charlottesville and his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord. Professor Daniel M. Kammen used the first letter in each of his seven-paragraph resignation he tendered to Trump to spell out the word I-M-P-E-A-C-H. Kammen, appointed as one of five U.S. Science Envoys by the State Department, made his resignation letter public on Wednesday. He sent out a tweet reading, “Mr. President, I am resigning as Science Envoy. Your response to...

    Donors have pulled back and incoming students have decided to go elsewhere in response to the firestorm that erupted from a professor’s racially-charged Facebook posts, Trinity College’s president said Monday. Joanne Berger-Sweeney said 16 incoming students have withdrawn and past donors have chosen not to contribute to the school this year, resulting in about a $200,000 loss in donations. Both groups specifically cited the national uproar surrounding Professor Johnny Eric Williams’ posts, she said.

    The German government has been accused of abandoning its Jewish community as a surging tide of anti-Semitism means there are parts of the country where it is considered dangerous to be a Jew. Josef Schuster, the president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, made the call. He lamented a lack of action by the German government combined with mass, unfettered immigration from Muslim countries as being key contributors to the plight felt by the nation’s Jewish community. “In some districts in major cities, I’d advise people not to identify themselves as Jews,” Mr. Schuster said in an interview...

    Should a transgender college student be expected to sit through a college level art course without being “triggered”?   An art professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) has resigned after being vilified by LGBT students in what he describes as a toxic and hostile politically correct environment. Professor Michael Bonesteel, an art critic, author, and specialist in the history of comics and the history of outsider art, resigned after 14 years with SAIC when his hours were cut and his healthcare was lost in response to accusations of racism and homophobia when two transgender students...
