Good. He has every right to be a stupid moron. I'm serious too, the guys a jackoff, but he has a right to be so, and most certainly can't be fired
for being an asshole. Those people in that building were not responsible for the arabs being down trodden.And then he claims that the janitors are
not responsible. Without them, the building could not operate, infact, unionized janitors can strike, whereas white collar workers can't organize
and do anything about the business.
This guy also claims to be a Cherokee Indian. This is a lie!
Who gives a damn! Is it really necessary to villify someone who's already done a good enough job of it himself? Concern over b/s like that is what
makes this guy look like he has a point. He expressed an unpopular opinion, and now he's being vilified in the press for irrelevant matters and
propaganda machines are starting up against him. Elected officials are pressuring schools not to allow him to guest lecture, why? There's a lot of

Where you do see conservatives are in business departments.
I have to say I've known a number of, well, at least 'not liberal' professors. A large part of the problem supposedly is that during Vietnam lots
of people entered academia in order to avoid the draft. Tho this is usually said to have resulted in more of a problem of having incompetent and
unmotivated high school teachers than anything.
