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

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.

    Could you imaging Stomp Mohamed? Stomp Buddah? Clearly a double standard! If what's happening in WPB is not an isolated cell of radical leftism, perhaps it is representative of the larger democratic party's curent leanings. I'm reminded of the voice vote in the last convention regarding the planks for recognizing Jerusalem as the home for the Jewish people and having God in or out of the party? I watched it live so I'm not really surprised by this story. The current administration is clearly supportive of the agenda and has failed to act or criticize the trend.

    We, spouse and I, agree that Mr. Poole is the one that should have been put on report, castigated,reprimanded – then fired(NOT the university student!! – idiots).

    If he had stomped on mohammad instead mobs would be coming for his head – imagine that. We recommend that he try this trick at his next job.

    It is time for all good Americans to come out of the dark and defend what you believe.

    The online leftists have been talking about academic freedom while at the same time sneaking in offensive insults against Jesus just before Easter. Why would a leftist be so hateful toward Jesus? it makes no sense. Today is Easter Sunday. While Christians rejoice on this day sadly there are still some narcissistic individuals and ideologies that reject grace and bow to their own vanity. God bless

    Huh, I was wrong. I figured Poole was a Jew, but he's black and on the DL.

  5. 90 % is too generous I would estimate 95%

    Beware; these roaches are scurrying to–and-fro trying to mount a counter attack.

    You would think that they would have the decency to restrain their fanatical leftist agenda just long enough to have a bit of soul-searching.

    The Sun Sentinel’s free -lance writer, Susan “bin Laden wanna-be” liberal is already implying that this is merely the right wing over reacting and therefore all good liberals should see this as an “us vs. them” issue and march in lock-step. Without the slightest bit of shame this writer flaunts the code words ACADEMIC FREEDOM to rationalize Jesus hate speech and hide her true ulterior motives (attacking conservatives). Then she suggests that Mr. Poole may be the real victim. Stay tuned. It is only a matter of time until Jesus hate apologists attempt to sleaze through another pseudo- explanation assuming we are gullible enough to believe it. Surely they just assumed that disrespecting Jesus is leftist normal.

    You would think that this “selective” political un-correctness (ACADEMIC FREEDOM) would just as easily extend to another religion as well if leftist lunatic writers had even a sliver of journalistic integrity. Instead all we ever see from these crazies is instant groveling PC reverence.

    I don’t want to mention the “religion” by name and run the risk of being called “you-know-what” phobic, but it’s the same one that sanctions in (GOD’S NAME) beheadings, honor killings, burning churches, ethnic cleansing, and the criminalizing of all other religions.

    It’s the same religion that insists their prophet’s name be followed by “may Peace be upon him” lest anyone not show proper respect or doubt the absolute supremacy of its prophet. (YEAH THAT ONE)

    Let’s be honest, the true intent never had anything to do with ACADEMIC FREEDOM.
