    I'm actually beyond shocked that the university took such swift, decisive (and deserved) action. It seems like making outrageous statements against the President or Republicans in general makes you a darling in academia these days.

    And a sociology adjunct. Interesting. There are 6,000 people in line for that job.

    What a dipshit!
    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."
