U. Mississippi Prof Doubles Down After Calling Young Trump Supporters ‘Hitler Youth’

U. Mississippi Prof Doubles Down After Calling Young Trump Supporters ‘Hitler Youth’

“Got a uniform and everything.”

It’s fun to think about what would happen to a professor if they said this about young Obama supporters.

Campus Reform reports:

Prof: ‘When I said MAGA teens are modern day Hitlerjugend, I meant it’

UPDATE: Newly tenured University of Mississippi professor James Thomas had previously said on Twitter that “MAGA teens are modern day Hitlerjugend [Hitler Youth]. Got a uniform and everything.”

Thomas confirmed that he meant what he said in a Wednesday tweet, which appeared to refer to the rally at which the crowd chanted that Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar should be sent back to her home country (Somalia).

Original story below

The University of Mississippi professor who said that U.S. senators “don’t deserve your civility” just days after Sen. Ted Cruz was run out of a Washington, D.C. restaurant by anti-Brett Kavanaugh protesters was granted tenure Thursday by the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning.

While professors typically are granted this perk not afforded to professionals in other industries without opposition, Ole Miss sociology professor James Thomas’s tenure recommendation was debated by the governing body for at least two hours before eventually being approved, but not without some dissent, according to a news release from Mississippi Public Universities.

While the professor’s statements on social media were considered, “ultimately it was the recommendation of the professor’s institution, the University of Mississippi, that carried the greatest weight in the majority of the Board’s decision to grant tenure to the professor.”

Campus Reform reported on the controversy surrounding a tweet from Thomas back in October, around the same time that leftists were fighting President Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh’s confirmation mostly centered around unfounded allegations of 30-year-old sexual assault allegations, including ones from two women who later recanted their claims.

Mississippi allows this crap to teach?

Is there any other profession which allows itself to go rancid via something like tenure?

Another professor of pseudo science, sociology, talks garbage. It’s time for the engineering,we science and business faculties to say no more and to take back for college environment. The entire College environment is dominated by women’s studies, black studies, and the pseudo-sciences, etc.

    A question to ask is: why are taxpayers compelled to fund such nonsense as grievance studies courses and departments? Graduates of such courses of study offer no financial return to the community because the jobs they get are so low in pay that the taxes paid don’t help to cover the past costs, nor do the skills taught offer any actual benefit to the community..

    Engineering does. Law does. Science does. Agriculture does. Forestry does.

    My opinion on the matter is: let the nonsense and soft majors be caught by privately funded colleges and universities. Stop requiring the taxpayers (“government”) to back student loans. Nonsense as described in this article will dry up to nothing.

As long as taxpaying parents keep sending their children there will be the continued sopping up of the gravy. The student money keeps rolling in, so the behavior has no reason to change. Just ask a politician.

Higher ed continues to self-identify as absolutely nuts. No sense in this sort of thing happening under the radar.
