Professor’s intimidating, hate-filled tirade to class: Republicans ‘raped this country’

 William S. PennA Michigan State University creative writing professor was secretly recorded engaging in a little creative writing of his own on the opening day of class. He criticized Mitt and Ann Romney and ranted against “old cheap Republicans” who “raped” the country.

After Prof. William S. Penn called out a student who appeared to disagree with him during the 8-minute tirade, the professor added that Republicans want to prevent “black people” from voting, as reported by Campus Reform.

“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.”

He then brought the notion of free higher education into the mix.

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

The professor then mocked a student who appeared to disagree with his jaundiced view of GOP politics.

“You can frown if you want,” said Penn, indicating a student sitting near the front. “You look like you are frowning. Are you frowning?”

Penn followed up by launching into a recitation of his views of voter-ID laws. Campus Reform reported him saying:

“This country still is full of closet racists,” he said. “What do you think is going on in South Carolina and North Carolina. Voter suppression. Its about getting black people not to vote. Why? Because black people tend to vote Democratic.”

“Why would would Republicans want to do it?” he asked. “Because Republicans are not a majority in this country anymore. They are a bunch of dead white people. Or dying white people.”

Perhaps he isn’t aware that the only African-American U.S. senator is from South Carolina — and he’s a Republican. Could Professor Penn be any relation to Sean Penn?

Campus Reform reported that university officials are looking into the matter.

“At MSU it is important the classroom environment is conducive to a free exchange of ideas and is respectful of the opinions of others,” Kent Cassella,an MSU spokesman wrote.

    Since the left has taken to semi-violent demonstrations at the HOMES of people they don’t like as well as publishing interactive maps of their locations, whenever a tirade like this is published/broadcast the perp’s home address ought to be part of the “credit.” The right to free speech comes with the responsibility for taking the credit/blame.

    Are we sure this jerk isn’t just an arts and crafts instructor? After all, he’s created several straw men inside of five minutes.

  • John Craig

    Just another lib that wants his face and name on the news and what better way than to rant on the republican party! If he ranted on the Democratic party he would get fired and arrested!

    Why do these numb nuts gravitate to teaching, and who, specifically, hires them? We’re no closer to getting an answer to this than we are to our Benghazi queries.

        What, exactly, do you consider “work”, Mr. Tony?

    • ddgirlaz

      @alanbranfman:disqus … why do these numb nuts gravitate to politics?? Better question.

  • Larry Miller

    He sounds and looks like a terrorist. Maybe an investigation is in order.
    If I was his neighbor, I would watch him real close.

    I was told as a teen that democrats were for poor people & republicans were just there for rich people. I found out that this is a lie & changed to republican years ago. It is jerks like this that mislead people. I DON’T CARE IF BLACKS VOTE…. I DON’T WANT ILLEGALS & DEAD PEOPLES VOTES TO COUNT… EX. 108% OF POPULATION VOTED FOR OBAMA IN ONE COUNTY IN THE 2012 ELECTION.
    Does this professor approve of cheaters like the president? I refuse to say our president because I didn’t vote for him!!!

    I had my little better that arguments throughout College, I told 2 professors to come outside if they had a personal problem with me, one an arts teacher the other a Humanities teacher. See I was born in a communist country, last thing I need is to be told lies and accept them or be ridiculed by these commies, I am now a free man and intend to die that way. God Bless the USA.

      Good for you, Rob.

  • Jim McCormack

    Hey numb nuts, get out of the classroom and compete in business for 40 years after fighting a damned war and then tell me how you feel. Every thing I learned from Lib professors was wrong . Your one sided tirade which is not sourced and a lie would not go well with some real business owners. You’re a phony.

    What jerk.
