Michigan State Professor: Republicans ‘Raped This Country’
Liberal professors attacking conservatives on college campuses is nothing new, but William Penn at Michigan State University may have taken conservative bashing to a whole new level.
In a video posted on the website Campus Reform, Penn. who teaches fiction and non-fiction writing at MSU, is caught on tape lambasting Republicans as a bunch of greedy racists who “raped this country.”
According to Campus Reform, Mr. Penn is a well-recognized professor at MSU, having received the Distinguished Faculty Award in 2003 and is a two-time winner of the Stephen Crane Prize for Fiction.
Instead of using his platform to educate his students, he has taken to trashing Republicans every chance he can. The video begins with the professor calling the attendees at the 2012 Republican Convention a bunch of “old people with all the dead skin cells washing off them” who “don’t want to pay taxes because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could.”
Penn didn’t stop there, instead threatening to come after what he called a country that is “full of closet racists” and used “voter suppression” laws in North and South Carolina to justify who he wants to come after. Touting the typical liberal line, Penn claimed that voter ID laws were “about getting black people not to vote…because black people tend to vote Democratic.”
But wait, there’s more. Mr. Penn’s anti-Republican tirade continued as he asserted that voting laws are being implemented because Republicans are a “bunch of dying white people.” One would think that calling Republicans rapists and racists would be enough for one class but Penn instead opened up on Mitt Romney, calling the man a “greedy bastard” just trying to “get things” and “hide all your income offshore, in the Cayman Islands.”
Does this sound like the type of professor your tax dollars should be supporting? As of right now, MSU has stated they are “looking into” the matter regarding Professor Penn but haven’t said if he will face disciplinary action for his hateful tirade. Sadly, Penn’s comments came at the beginning of the semester, so it’s hard to tell how hateful his rhetoric would have gotten as the semester progressed.
