“I have retained an attorney and am exploring my options.”
As you’ll see below, this professor also insisted that cancel culture doesn’t exist.
The College Fix reports:
Professor called for peers to be fired for their speech. Now she’s being fired for her speech.
Lora Burnett has a history of calling for faculty to be punished for their speech and associations.
Economic and political historian Phil Magness emphasized this when I wrote about scrutiny the Collin College history professor was facing for her crude tweets about Vice President Mike Pence.
The Collin administration has now confirmed it won’t renew the untenured scholar’s contract, which ends in May, for not conducting herself “in a professional manner.”
Burnett shared images from the human resources letter she received, which allege she violated “delineated standards of conduct” through her “insubordination, making private personnel issues public that impair the college’s operations, and personal criticisms of co-workers, supervisors, and/or those who merely disagree with you.”
She characterized the firing as retaliation for “mean tweets.”
The Chronicle of Higher Education calls Burnett “perhaps [President Neil] Matkin’s most outspoken critic.” The college also recently let go two professors who organized its chapter of the union-like Texas Faculty Association, one of whom started a public letter against its COVID-19 reopening plan.
Burnett tweeted Thursday night that she was “disappointed but not surprised” at being let go for her free speech, accusing the college of lacking transparency. “I have retained an attorney and am exploring my options.”
She used the incident to repeat her view that her firing was not “cancel culture,” because “there’s no such thing.”
While you're here…
No, this isn't "cancel culture"; there's no such thing.
This is *government* retaliation for free speech, which is illegal and actionable.
