More Threats Of Violence From Within Academia - Conform Or Get Out

A UC Santa Barbara student alleges her black studies professor warned any “Ted Cruz-supporting ‘tea baggers’ to get the hell out of his classroom before he sent them home to their mother in a body bag.” . . . the College Republican National Committee, strives to highlight the discrimination and intolerance conservative students face everyday on campuses nationwide.
That should keep them busy for a while. I remember a few academics used to come here and loudly protest accusations of politicization in college classrooms. Not so much anymore. Wise decision. Story here.

And, in the video below, you can hear first hand experiences from those being persecuted for their personal beliefs by "free-thinkers" in academia:

Real brave aren't they?  Students must truly feel threatened in an environment where disagreeing with the person who is clearly antagonistic toward their belief system, also holds the power to fail or pass them. Disgusting bullies.

This is the second time in the last few weeks that someone from UCSB's Black Studies department has made the national media for outrageously unacceptable behavior.

First it was a tenured professor shouting down then strong-arming a teenage girl followed by arrogantly walking off with her abortion protest sign, and now it's over-the-top hyperbolic morbid fantasies from a pathologically angry nutcase lecturer directed at undergraduate students.

Obviously, there's something seriously amiss in the BS Department at the Campus-by-the-Sea. Local administrative and Faculty Senate officials would be well advised to take a good hard look at the troubled Department before the Universitywide Administration is forced to step-in.
