Professor Under Fire for Speaking Out Against Political Correctness, Illegal Immigration

“calling an illegal immigrant a quote, ‘undocumented immigrant’ is like calling a drug dealer, quote ‘an unlicensed pharmacist'”

Fang Zhou is an associate professor at Georgia Gwinnett College. He is also a legal immigrant from China and frequent critic of illegal immigration in the United States. His views on that subject, as well as political correctness, have triggered some people on the left.

Dom Calicchio reports at FOX News:

Illegal immigrants can hurt US economy, professor argues, prompting calls for his firing

A college professor in Georgia is drawing criticism for his online comments about illegal immigrants, including his contention that people in the U.S. illegally can be a drain on the nation’s economy.

“If you are going to reward illegal immigrants, there will be more illegal immigrants,” Fang Zhou, an associate professor of history at Georgia Gwinnett College near Atlanta, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Zhou says he welcomes the criticism, including from those who say he should lose his job, according to the report.

“I am against political correctness,” Zhou, a legal immigrant from China, told the newspaper. “I speak truth to power in class and my students learn about the financial drain of illegal immigration on the economy and the high crime rates of illegal immigrants.

“My students are ‘woke’ and are overwhelmingly against illegal immigration after taking my class,” he added.

But Zhou told the paper he does not force students to share his opinions.

Zhou’s rejection of political correctness has attracted the criticism of Georgia Democrat Rep. Bee Nguyen:

Zhou appeared on the Tucker Carlson show this week to discuss the situation. Transcript via FOX News:

FANG ZHOU, HISTORY PROFESSOR, GEORGIA GWINNETT COLLEGE: Thank you for having me. Well, first of all, I’m an Associate Professor with job security. My institution has an academic freedom policy. I teach students the difference between legal and illegal immigration.

So lumping legal and illegal immigration together is not only wrong, it is deeply offensive. It’s like lumping pharmacists and drug dealers together and calling an illegal immigrant a quote, “undocumented immigrant” is like calling a drug dealer, quote “an unlicensed pharmacist” or a student who intentionally cheated on a test a quote “answer key borrower.”

CARLSON: Okay, so, you know, if I had a professor like you in college, I probably would have learned something and enjoyed it. What do your kids say? What do your students say when you peel off a line like that?

ZHOU: Well, most of my students are against illegal immigration. I respect everyone’s viewpoints. I tell students, “You don’t have to believe me. If you want to make a convincing argument. Please provide evidence.”

Legal immigrants to the United States are often some of the loudest critics of illegal immigration.

Is there any wonder why?

1,000,000 thumbs up to this wonderful LEGAL immigrant professor!

While I agree with this professor and agree with everything he says, we still do have an enormous problem in our country with *all* types of immigration including legal immigration. We have 70 million people here who were not born here, and in recent years, all immigration has increased greatly, including legal immigration. ‘Chain’ migration is a consequence of legal immigration, not the illegal type.

As much as I agree with this guy, his patriotism and his concern for his new country is an exception to the rule of un-assimilated, anti-american immigrants we have in 2019. We desperately need a 20-year moratorium on legal immigration, to give all these newly arrived people a chance to intigrate with our society, to assimilate. Everyone would be better off for it.

    You’re wrong on this one big time. We need to import legal, skilled workers to support the aging boomer population. There aren’t enough young workers coming up to support them and with the birth rate dropping, it is going to get worse. We face the problem Japan has faced.

      You just posted a bunch of opinions bereft of a single fact or data point. Congrats!

        What data would you like? The birth rate data? It’s been posted as part of an article on this site just within this month (and how it i will affect college enrollments). Dig it up if you’d like.

        The Japanese problem has also been discussed on this site (lack of birth rate or interest in reproduction in the young generation has hurt their economy considerably). It’s real even if you don’t want to believe it.

    The best way to deal with such a large number of immigrants, is to oust those who are not legal.

Let the truth be told, though the heavens (and idiot SJWs) tremble.

The Trump administration needs to add a tax on the monies transferred to other countries. Then use that money to finish the wall. Then Mexico would pay for the wall, after all.

I suppose he is also against unlicensed massage therapists.

    Dumb

      DouglasJBender in reply to gonzotx. | June 15, 2019 at 2:25 pm

      Why is my humor “dumb”? Is not an “unlicensed massage therapist” similar, in principle, to an “undocumented worker” or an “unlicensed pharmacist”? Do you not appreciate refined (or not so refined) sarcasm?

This right here is the biggest problem with the professor:
“ZHOU: “You don’t have to believe me. If you want to make a convincing argument. Please provide evidence.”

asking students to do work to prove something? bad form indeed

A thousand likes!

DemonCraps & LibTurds want Illegals in our nation because they know they have lost most Americans who see through their Lies and BS. If Illegals are stopped at the Border then they WILL lose seats in Congress and in State Governments.
