You can stay on staff if you advocate acts of violence and recruit college students for the Communist party.
Like the other dishonest people you’ve known in the past, UMSL and UMKC are attempting to divert attention to ‘academic freedom’ in order to weasel out of what they’ve been caught Red handed allowing on their campuses, the issue has to do with the fact that Judy Ancel is at the very least a supporter of an ideology dedicated to overthrowing the government of the United States of America (see my previous post), that she, along with Don Giljum (an avowed Communist and union thug), supports the use of violence to accomplish their goals, and that far from keeping those their personal views, they both boldly brought them into the classroom, made them the center of the course, and even actually brought a communist party activist into class and gave him an unchallenged platform to spew his party line for two hours in front of your kids.
Is this the purpose of a university education in the state of Missouri? Should college students learn how to sabotage and promote acts of violence against the United States and private industry?
Apparently the chancellor and provost believe this hateful and violent speech and action is protected and welcomed:
our campus supports academic freedom, civility, diversity, open discourse and the pursuit of knowledge…
Tom George, ChancellorCan you even imagine the uproar from the university system if a Libertarian or Republican speaker tried to recruit students for their party? Is it appropriate for any party to recruit members in class? Do you believe the statements of throwing cats into power plants to achieve labor goals fall under the umbrella of civility and the pursuit of knowledge?
Glen Cope, Provost”
This cover of academic freedom is ridiculous on it face for these lecturers. These statements should be condemned by the university, not protected under academic freedom. This is hate speech, pure and simple.
