Michigan State University Prof. William Penn Suspended from Teaching After Caught on Video Going on an Anti-Republican Tirade During Literature Class
More attempted liberal indoctrination at institutes of higher education …
After the below VIDEO going viral, Michigan State University was forced to suspend Prof. William Penn from teaching the rest of the semester. His rant against the GOP and his anti-Republican tirade was actually on the first day of class. Imagine what this class would have been after that? However, the even more amazing part of this was that this was not a political science class, it was a literature one. During the video, released by Campus Reform early this week, Penn expressing his political views saying that Republicans were “cheap” and “raped” the country. NICE.
Question: How often must this type of nonsense go on in colleges all across America but is never caught on video?
Michigan State University (MSU) administrators have suspended Prof. William Penn from teaching for the remainder of the semester, after he was caught on video going on an anti-Republican tirade on the very first day of his literature class.
Although Penn will not teach again this year, the school will continue to pay his salary, which is $146,510 according to MSU’s official website, a spokesman for the university told Campus Reform on Thursday evening.
In an email to students Thursday morning, Dean Karen Wurst of the College of Arts & Letters, cited his “inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive” comments.
“On Aug. 29, during your Literatures, Cultures, Identities course, Professor William Penn made comments he has acknowledged were inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive and may have negatively affected the learning environment,” she wrote. “Once MSU was made aware of the situation the Office of the Provost immediately began a review.”
“As a result, Penn’s duties have been reassigned, and he will not be teaching this semester,” she added. “A new instructor is being assigned to your course.”
So does this professor get fired for his actions? Not at all. As reported at The Daily Caller, The professor who called Republicans racists and rapists may have been relieved of his teaching duties for the rest of the semester, but he will still be paid in full by Michigan State University.
Campus Reform learned from an MSU spokesperson on Thursday that creative writing professor William Penn’s would still receive his annual salary of $146,510.
“His employment status has not changed; his teaching duties have been reassigned,” wrote Josiah Ryan, editor in chief of Campus Reform, in an email to The Daily Caller.
The Daily Caller is also reporting that the hate-filled professor also attached Christians and athletes. Wow, what a positive influence on the student body. And this guy had a teaching job how?
An eye-witness account from a student in the class revealed previously unreported details of Penn’s rant. According to sophomore Caroline Freeman, Penn also attacked Christians and athletes.
“He was talking about how Christians are dumb and don’t know what what they’re talking about and that they’re all blind followers,” said Freeman in a statement to MLive. “He was just tearing down a whole institution of belief, and it had nothing to do with class.”
He then turned on athletes.
“He said athletes were wasting their time trying to throw a ball in a hoop and how we glorify them for no reason,” she said. “He was calling people bad for playing football.”
