The Marxist outrage mob has once again claimed a new victim, this time a professor from the University of North Carolina.
His ‘crime’? Wrongthink.
As reported by Campus Reform, criminology and sociology Prof. Mike Adams has decided to call it a career after blasting coronavirus lockdown and social distancing rules and rightfully labeling university “women’s studies” courses “non-essential” in a pair of tweets.
The first tweet in question read, 'This evening I ate pizza and drank beer with six guys at a six seat table top. I almost felt like a free man who was not living in the slave state of North Carolina. Massa Cooper, let my people go!” he wrote, a reference to Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper.
A day later, Adams tweeted, 'Don't shut down the universities. Shut down the non essential majors. Like Women's Studies.'
My God. What blasphemy.
Campus Reform added:
The campaign against Adams extended outside of the UNCW community. Actor Orlando Jones took to Twitter to say, 'As a resident of Wilmington NC & father. Mike Adams, a professor @UNCWilmingon is a problem!'
One Tree Hill actress Sophia Bush also voiced her opinions on Twitter by quoting Jones' tweet and adding, 'Ummm. @UNCWilmington. How do you employ this person?!? The racism and misogyny are atrocious. This feels like another change for Wilmington that the #OTHfam could make some noise about.'
An online petition amassed more than 28,000 signatures calling for the university to fire Mike Adams from UNCW and asking supporters to not apply to or fund the school. The petition cites multiple tweets from Adams including some critical of the Black Lives Matter movement.
'This petition is also an individual’s pledge to withhold any financial support to the University of North Carolina-Wilmington until Mike Adams is removed. This includes withholding alumni endowments, and any donations,' reads the petition, which claims that Adams 'has a long history of espousing racist, misogynistic, homophobic, and abusive rhetoric…”
The petition claims that Adams 'does not belong in a position of teaching young students, and perpetuating racism by instilling ideals that white culture is superior to others.'
'Especially as a criminology professor, potentially seeding dangerous behavior in minds seeking a future in law enforcement. His own comments clearly portray an individual who believes people of color’s culture and morals are inferior to his own. Mike Adams enjoys his 1st amendment rights, just as we all should. Express yours by telling Mike Adams and UNCW (a public university) that NC tax payers won’t help fund his salary, and that freedom of speech does not mean freedom of consequence,” it continued.
Only the Marxist Left gets to decide what speech is and is not acceptable — not the Constitution. Not the First Amendment.
The ‘free speech’ movement that began on college campuses in the 1960s has morphed into a ‘controlled speech’ movement.
My, how times have changed.
Is Joe Biden's Inflation Going to Destroy our Economy and Break the Back of Consumers?
Are backed-up supply chains adding to the dilemma of bad policy?
You can't afford NOT to be prepared for the coming financial reset
