Conservative Student Group Hits Back at Prof Who Accused Them of Racism
“This group is known for affiliating with racist and neo-Nazi and other alt-right groups”
Good for these students for responding. You expect this sort of behavior from students, but not a professor.
Campus Reform reports:
Conservative group responds forcefully to prof who called it ‘racist’
A professor at Montana Technological University reacted to the formation of a new conservative student organization on his campus by calling the group “racist.”
“This group is known for affiliating with racist and neo-Nazi and other alt-right groups,” Professor of Science and Technology Studies Pat Munday told KXLF-TV in February.
“We don’t want to suppress free speech. We don’t want to in any way try to tell students what clubs they can or can’t have but we do want to promote awareness that this is a very dangerous road to go down,” Munday added.
TPUSA responded to the professor’s public statement, which it called “defamatory.”
“The quote by Professor Pat Munday is both defamatory and wildly inaccurate. TPUSA is a mainstream conservative organization that encourages people of all races and backgrounds to participate. TPUSA even hosts annual events and gatherings catering to minority communities too often underrepresented in the political arena, including a Black Leadership Summit, a Latino Leadership Summit, a Jewish Leadership Summit, among many other uplifting and positive events. Professor Munday is either the victim of misinformation and should do some more research, or willfully ignorant, either way he owes the amazing student leaders at TPUSA Montana Tech an immediate apology,” a statement provided to KXLF-TV read.
Another Montana Tech professor, English and History Professor Henry Gonshak, reacted to Montana lawmakers’ efforts to legalize concealed carry of firearms on the state’s college campuses, on which Campus Reform previously reported.

What? No demands to be fired immediately without an investigation? Oh, that’s right, this is a conservative group and the lefty is protected by his privilege.
Professor of Science and Technology Studies
So not an actual scientist or engineer then.
Would have been nice to expand “Turning Point USA.” I was assuming this was some sort of Tea Party group.
A professor of “Science and Technology Studies’ raving about white supremacy. What a shock.
If an academic title has “Studies” at the tail end, it can be immediately discounted and its holder ridiculed.
We are talking about the former Montana School of Mines, which is now a part of the University of Montana system. It has only 1,800 students.
They list a wide variety of clubs, including Turning Point USA: https://www.mtech.edu/student-life/clubs/
