NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An online petition asking Vanderbilt University to suspend a professor has received more than one thousand signatures.
Students started the petition on Change.org in response to online comments by Carol Swain, a Professor of Law and Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University.
On her YouTube channel and social media, Swain has openly criticized Islam, the LGBT community, liberals and others.
The petition accuses Swain of expressing hatred towards minorities.
“Although Ms. Swain is free to speak openly and have her own views, no matter how disagreeable they may be, it is generally unprofessional to attach your job title to a channel promoting your personally held beliefs,” the petition says. “Keeping personal beliefs and University-endorsed statements separate is crucial to maintaining the integrity of Vanderbilt’s values.”
Editor’s note: Hatred towards minorities? She is black. So many liberals have zero tolerance for anyone who holds a dissenting viewpoint. Case in point: Iconic feminist Germaine Greer is being castigated by other liberals and being called a woman hater. A feminist, a woman hater? Why? Because she dares to speak against the greatest of the left’s causes: transgenderism. A story about her is here: http://www.breakpoint.org/bpcommentaries/entry/13/28435
