Professor Apologizes After Being Recorded Calling Glenn Youngkin a ‘Trumpist Retard’
“His remarks do not reflect the values or culture of the Christopher Newport community.”
This is a perfect example of how the left thinks about Republicans. Such a problematic choice of words, though.
Campus Reform reports:
EXCLUSIVE: Genetics professor apologizes for calling Youngkin a ‘Trumpist retard’
James Bogenpohl, an assistant professor at Christopher Newport University (CNU), was caught on video apparently calling Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin a “Trumpist retard” during a lecture in his genetics class.
On Friday, the video surfaced on Libs Of Tik Tok. The tweet received well over 1,000 likes, 400 retweets, and over 100 outraged comments.
Though other news media reported the same day that the Virginia university had yet to react to Bogenpohl’s comments, CNU Interim Chief Communications Officer Bruce Bronstein told Campus Reform, “Dr. Bogenpohl has apologized to his students and the university for his lapse in good judgment.”
“We are greatly disappointed by the inappropriate and hurtful comments made by Assistant Professor James Bogenpohl,” Bronstein continued. “His remarks do not reflect the values or culture of the Christopher Newport community.”
Daemian Hague, a student at CNU, told Campus Reform that the professor’s comments appeared “insensitive.”

Did he apologize to Governor Youngkin while he was at it?
Nothing to see here, folks. Nothing will happen.
Criticizing Republicans is virtuous, protected speech.
On the other hand, criticizing BLM or CRT or Black Democrats is racist hate speech, which will get you fired.
They’re not criticizing him for insulting Trump or Youngkin.
They’re demanding he stop using the word retard.
I don’t want to sound like a snob, but I swear that I have never even heard of 98% of the colleges talked about on LI. I did notice that their men’s basketball team is playing “The College of Mary Washington.”
…driven by there a number of times—as one could imagine, blue and pink hair abound.
How does the topic of the governor come up during a genetics class? Everything is political with these people.
Some slurs are more equal than other slurs.
So, officially, we’re not going to accept his apology, right?
Those are today’s rules, aren’t they?
“Let’s just Move On now, people. There’s nobody to fire here.”
How is disgusting rhetoric from a so-called professor teaching at a fifth-tier school considered newsworthy?!?
Typical over educated (no common sense) MORONIC professor.
I think he should have to write an essay on why he shouldn’t use hate speech and submit it to the Governor for review and grading. If he receives less than an A from Governor Youngkin he should be fired.
Christopher Newport is a “university”?
Per Merriam-Webster, “The meaning of UNIVERSITY is an institution of higher learning providing facilities for teaching and research and authorized to grant academic degrees; specifically : one made up of an undergraduate division which confers bachelor’s degrees and a graduate division which comprises a graduate school and professional schools each of which may confer master’s degrees and doctorates.”
The school has four Master’s degree offerings.
I have an old friend who has a son with Down Syndrome. I burn with rage when I see heartless morons throw around the “retard” term. Most of this sort of talk comes from heartless lefties.
