Media fail: Stomp Jesus FAU professor is a Dem. Party official

Deandre Poole

Florida Atlantic University professor Deandre Poole

A South Florida college professor’s bizarre classroom antics have made waves for their shocking display of religious intolerance. But they were even more instructive in educating the rest of us on the alarming thought process of yet another Palm Beach County Democratic leader.

Florida Atlantic University professor Deandre Poole instructed his intercultural communications class earlier this month to write the name “Jesus” on a piece of paper, then drop it on the floor and stomp on it.

One student, a devout Mormon, was so so disturbed by the exercise that he complained to school officials, saying Poole had offended his religious convictions. The school responded by suspending the student from the class.

While the incident has made the news, the media has failed to report a key component of Poole’s resume: He is vice-chairman of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party. His recent actions add fire to an already-disturbing pattern of hate coming out of the local party.

Mark Siegel, the former chairman of the county Democratic Party, was forced to resign in September under a barrage of criticism over an anti-Christian tirade at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

Siegel, who is Jewish, told an interviewer at the convention that pro-Israel Christians want to see Jews “slaughtered.”

“Oh no, the Christians just want us to be there so we can all be slaughtered and converted and bring on the second coming of Jesus Christ,” he said at the time.

Just two months earlier, in a series of emails, Evelyn Garcia, a Democratic Executive Committee member from Palm Beach County and one of the local party’s Democratic National Committee representatives, accused Israel of “crimes against humanity” and running “mass concentration prison camps.”

Garcia also quit her post in the wake of the public response to her comments.

It is inconceivable that so much religious intolerance can be originating from one locale. The public has no choice but to question whether these party leaders are simply echoing the sentiments of the entire Democratic Party.

One thing is certain: There is little doubt that the secular progressive mentality has taken hold in the Democratic Party and has come to dominate its leadership’s thinking.

    What war on religion, you ask? I am starting to think, colleges are now in the business of stealing the soul of our nation, our children.

    Absolutely unbelievable. I shouldn't be shocked, but I really am! What a story!

  • Harold Patterson

    These are the liars that claim "Everyone is welcome in the Democratic Party" Everyone but Christians, fiscal conservatives, social conservatives or anyone with an IQ higher than their shoe size. Hypocrites all of them.

    There's one thing for sure mr. poole, you may stomp on a piece of paper that say's JESUS on it, but He is coming back like He said, You will see, and He's not coming in a baby manger, He's coming back on a WHITE HORSE AS KING OF KING'S!!! 2Th 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

    2Th 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

    2Th 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

    I WOULD SURE HATE TO BE IN YOUR SHOES THAT DAY, BECAUSE THAT DAY IS WHEN ENTERNITY WILL BEGIN FOR YOU FROM THE PRESENCE OF HIM WHOM YOU'VE STOMPED ON A PIECE OF PAPER, AND DONT WORRY IT WILL COUNT JUST LIKE IT WAS HIM!!! SEEYA ON JUDGEMENT DAY!!!

    This is becoming very alarming. The anti-Christian efforts of the Democrat Party in Florida speaks for itself. What propels the university to suspend the student from the class and not the professor is hardly a mystery either. 90% of professors and administrators are liberal hacks and propagandists.

  • Joval

    Why wa steh student even suspended? Seems to me the school's administration needs to be replaced with people that actually understand what education means and the professors who want to teach hate should be removed ASAP. The future of our next generation depends on it.

  • frank

    the professor and the school chancellor should be dismissed!

    I do not practice christanity, but I do believe in a supreme

    being. I do NOT criticize anyones religious affiliation.

    unless he tries to push it onto me, as the muslims are doing.

    I would suspect this professor is a muslim!

    this entire democrat party is by far the most dangerous

    party EVER!!!

    I would never have thought that this would be happening in my AMERICA!!!

    I've heard statements that were anti-christian which I find very offensive. It seems to be acceptable by the majority and I applaud this Mormon for taking the correct position. Most of the time you are all alone when it comes time to do the right thing.

      You won't be alone anymore. All over the country a new conservative media is telling the stories the liberal media doesn't want you to know about.
