For a college professor, William Penn sure sounds like an idiot and a propagandist. I’d love for someone to actually have challenged him. He probably would have lost it:

CAMPUS REFORM – A professor at Michigan State University (MSU) opened the first day of his creative writing class on Thursday by bashing Mitt and Ann Romney and ranting against “old Republicans” who he says “raped” the country, according to a student who made a secret recording of the class.

The eight-minute secretly recorded video also reveals Prof. William S. Penn bullying a student who apparently disagreed with his Democratic politics and arguing that Republicans want to prevent “black people” from voting.

“If you go to the Republican convention in Florida, you see all of the old Republicans with the dead skin cells washing off them,” said Penn. “They are cheap. They don’t want to pay taxes because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could.”

“They don’t want to pay for your tuition because who are you? Well, to me you are somebody,” he continued.

And it goes on…

MSU has already responded to this:

MSU is thankful we’ve been made aware of the situation; we will be looking into it. At MSU it is important the classroom environment is conducive to a free exchange of ideas and is respectful of the opinions of others,” wrote Kent Cassella, an MSU spokesman in am email to Campus Reform on Tuesday night.

    LOL! So because I don’t want to be forced to pay for someone else’s tuition, I’m evil?
    LOL! Only a marxist fanatic would say something so stupid.

  • Dukehoopsfan

    I was so hoping half of the students would just walk out and if he asked them why responded “because you are wasting my money”.  Moron … cannot even speak in complete sentences.

  • Rshill7

    Then you pay their tuition, ignoramus. Did Republicans “rape” Detroit or did Democrats and their Union pimps? Conservatives built this country faster than Democrats could tear it down…and 50 years ago Democrats were more conservative than most Republicans of today. 
    So what’s your point? I’ll tell you what it is. Nothin’ but net,…the net that should be thrown over your stupid head as you’re straight-jacketed and frog-marched off to the asylum. These students should be paid for listening to these Goebbels inspired lies, not the other way around. You are not educating, you are dumbing down. Kids will leave your class as idiots, because that’s what you are. An idiot and a liar.

    Is he related to Sean Penn? It would definitely make sense.

  • Watchman74

    I didn’t hear a single “creative” argument, just pure ad-hominem attacks.

  • TracyS1979

    Martin2717 I hope he’s not related to William Penn! If he is, then poor William is spinning in his grave.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    What an A-hole!!!!!  Wasn’t he “suppose” to be teaching creative writing, not indoctrination to the Demonic Party?  He should be removed from the classroom post haste!!!

  • TracyS1979

    I certainly hope no one who watched this video or posts on this board believes this is some isolated incident. This kind of thing is absolutely rampant on college campuses today. What’s worse, because of some nebulous concept of “academic freedom,” very few professors are held accountable.

  • The Sentinel

    How hard is it to utter the words: “You’re fired!”?
    This is hate speech, pure and simple. Liberals can’t have it both ways… They whine that conservatives are “spewing hate speech” when they utter something similar to this (and what a conservative says is a million times less offensive and vulgar). But when a flaming liberal has a captive audience, it’s open season and anything goes.
    This college needs to fire this shrew. NOW!!!

    Excellent!

  • TIMERUNNERSC

    Mr William Penn , the astute beyond compare “Professor of Creative Writing”, sounds deep, but  when we consider his comments, it sounds more like his words come from the mind of a juvenile of a autistic adult.

  • stage9

    Watchman74 That’s because there is no evidence to support his argument. That’s why he’s a professor, because he’s too stupid to face real thinkers out here in the real world.

  • sooner4ever

    So we have a professor who can’t get a job outside of academia and he gripes about Republicans.  Funny, it appears that it’s those awful Republicans who are paying the taxes that support the school that pays his salary.  I wonder if he ever attempted to get a real job outside of his creative writing class?

  • stage9

    Army_Pilot1967 If he’s a liberal living in the mid-west, he IS DOING HIS JOB!

  • Rshill7

    Army_Pilot1967  Well, what he said was certainly creative. Maybe the class is moving into Aesop territory and he’s creating a new, albeit much less believable, fable.

  • Rshill7

    Maybe his Dadda will use a little “creative writing” to write him out of his will. 
    I would. Then I’d slap him around a bit and make sure he knows he’s a disgusting fool. I’d say it in the most creative way possible though…with props…i.e., a dunce cap, a dunce scepter, and a dunce robe. A pair of big red Bozo shoes too.

    why do parents keep PAYING to have their kids turned against them?

  • Laurel A

    Mindless blathering from a  mindless twit. I have to laugh at these clowns and I wonder why the students don’t catch that while he is droning on and on in his hateful rant they don’t catch that it is bigotry. Bigotry in it’s truest form. People are taking on boatloads of debt for this?!

    And we wonder why our culture and schools at every level are such a mess?! Well I don’t…I need only look at this video or the hundreds like it or the numerous best selling books about this very topic.

    People have got to start standing up to these fools.

  • KenInIl

    This guy probably doesn’t know about Detroit !!  Probably just watches MSNBC.

  • Rshill7

    I used to argue with professors daily in college. I’d call them out every time on similar tripe as this. I didn’t give a damn what he or anyone else thought about it either. In many cases I would have them reduced to dribbling and stammering as they attempted to explain their imbecilic positions. They never could, especially in biology and micro-biology as they tried to shove macro-evolutionary theory down our necks.
    That’s why the Global Warming crowd believe they can get away with so many lies on that front, because so many swallowed the evolutionary thinking hook, line, and stinker. Dopes, who can’t think anything through to it’s illogical foolish conclusion, they simply spout someone else’s illogical conclusions without engaging the first or last brain cell. And to think our youth are going into tens of thousands of dollars worth of debt to be lied to every day. To come out of college dumber than were when they went in.

    Who hires these pieces of shit?

  • lawngreen

    sallyjohanna   It has gone viral, in colleges and universities. But not the way you mean.
    It’s gone viral because this is and has been thetrue face of American academia for the last forty years. THis is what kids have been indoctrinated with for the last forty years.

    Army_Pilot1967   I was in a statistics class “taught” by a (tenured, of course) pakistani pig (not literal pig) who spent a good deal of time explaining how superior paki customs were to American.

    Indoctrination.  Creative writing?  What the heck is he even talking about politics for?  He should be fired immediately, even if it was a government class.  
    My government teacher was conservative, but you’d never know it.  He never pushed a single bias idea on us, and he told us to come up with our own beliefs.  But this is in Kansas, not liberal-land.

  • PapaLouie

    Somebody needs to throw this professor’s argument back at him. Michigan State requires an ID and much more to become a student there or to get a student loan. So why isn’t Professor Penn accusing Michigan State of wanting to prevent black people from getting a college education? 
    Apparently he believes that there are two types of black people. One type is smart enough to get an ID, and these are the only Blacks who deserve to go to college. The other group is too dumb to get an ID or do much of anything without the help of superior intellects like Professor Penn. Who is the real racist here? Is it the White Republican who wants to treat Blacks just like everyone else, even when it comes to voting? Or is it the White Democrat who believes that Blacks are incapable of functioning in our society without special help?

  • PapaLouie

    Orangeone nibblesyble 
    Ask MSU if they require Blacks to show ID before admitting them as students.  If so, ask them why they are against Blacks getting an education. If it is wrong to ask Blacks to show ID before voting, why is it okay to require an ID to go to college?

Anyone with a brain bigger than a T-Rex can look at history and SEE that “IT DOESN’T WORK”. Communism, and it’s offspring have been abject failures every time. The only thing that form of government brings is millions of it’s citizens dead, and it country in ruins.

  • http://virusx.wordpress.com/ VIRUSX2K1

    He seems to have something against old, white people, and yet I could swear he is one. He says that Republicans are cheap, because they don’t want to pay other peoples way through college and life. I ask how much of his hundreds of thousands of dollars that he gets does he donate to other people, to put them through school? Maybe if he, and the rest of his union thug buddies weren’t so cheap, they’d take pay cuts, to help bring down the cost of tuition. Liberal socialists are always quick to tell people what they should spend money on, and how much, but aren’t so quick on the draw, when it comes to reaching in their own pockets. And if this asshat thinks we’re not paying enough in taxes, why doesn’t he reach deeper into his own? What? Is he waiting for a government fiat from Obama to tell him to pay more? Why do that, when nothing’s stopping you from paying more, voluntarily.And ‘raping’ the country? Let’s not forget that it was the DNC that teamed with ISLAM to institute race-based slavery in this country. Yeah, that’s right, this guy is the beneficiary of a political party that sought to gain power through ethnic discrimination, rape (yeah, they did plenty of that to slaves), torture and murder. When the federal government opposed it, they (his precious liberal democrats) literally took up arms to commit mass murder in the country, under the guise of civil warfare. They capped that off with murdering their president. Let’s not forget that the KKK was started by Confederate ‘soldiers’ (i.e.: murderous, traitorous thugs) fighting for the DEMOCRATIC PARTY. The Republicans are bad for America? The Republicans produced presidents like Lincoln, that sought to keep the union together, by any means necessary, while the DNC seeks to tear it apart, even today. Liberal democrats like this douche invented race based slavery in this country, domestic terrorism, institutionalized racism, etc. They even voted members of the domestic terrorist party of the KKK into political office, like Hugo Black and Harry Truman. It’s amazing we still have white liberals that will say this, in light of pictures of members of their own political party lynching (HANGING) people to death for their skin color, or their POLITICS (i.e.: Republicans and Conservatives).Now, with the election of a token half-black (Obama), suddenly, its them that stand for civil rights and equality. Yeah, the same party with guys like Bull Connor, Lester Maddox, Robert Byrd (Kleagel and Exalted Cyclops of the KKK, by the way), JFK, Fulbright, and Al Gore that fought tooth and nail against ethnic segregation, fit to make the Apartheid guys in South Africa proud. Nevermind the fact that this Trotskiite bastard (yes, considering he said in his own book that he can’t prove his parents were married, and that he wasn’t just a wild oat they had to sew) has done more, intentionally, to set back ethnic relations in this country, than the KKK EVER did. MY GOSH, I wish I would’ve been in this son of a bitch’s classroom, and he would’ve gotten salty with me, like he did that timid student of his. I would’ve gotten right up in that bastard’s face, and told him the facts of life. Cheap punk.

    sallyjohannalawngreen”White Conservatives are equivalent to the Jews of Nazi Germany!” That’s not much of an exaggeration. I suspect things will get much worse soon.
    I made one preparation years ago that somewhat lessens my concern. When I was nine years old, I became a believer in Jesus. No matter how bad things get in this life, I know that my sins have been forgiven and I have the promise of life in Heaven after this life. There are so many beneficial side effects of that decision that I won’t try to list them all, but I strongly encourage you, if you’re not a Christian, to get a New Testament and read it, and answer for yourself the question of whether or not Jesus was raised from the dead. The entire Christian faith hangs on that one question. Answer that, and you know whether or not Christianity is true. And the New Testament was written by those who were there at the time. They were eyewitnesses.

    So sad that impressionable youngsters just out of high school are faced with profs such as Mr. Penn. I returned to school at 53 years of age to be placed in a similar situation but confronted the prof after class concerning his teaching style as well as his views. He apologized to the class. There is no room for expounding political views or leanings in a basic college class. If the prof would not have changed his tactics, I would have gone to the administration immediately. Either do the job you are hired for or leave.
