Legal immigrant professor says Illegal immigrants can hurt US economy; now he’s on the chopping block

Thanks to left-wing insanity run amok, it’s now apparently socially unacceptable and racist for even a legal immigrant from China to complain about the drawbacks of illegal immigration.

Meet Fang Zhou, an associate professor of history at Georgia Gwinnett College near Atlanta who’s unabashedly opposed to illegal immigration:


He recently posted some online remarks about illegal immigration and politics in general that piqued the attention of Democrat state Rep. Bee Nguyen. In a tweet posted Wednesday, she shared a screenshot of some of these remarks and complained of his alleged bigotry.

“While we celebrate the passage of the Dream Act, this @GeorgiaGwinnett professor uses hostile terms ‘ghetto thugs,’ ‘libtards,’ & spreads false narratives about immigrants,” she wrote. “Are these the values supported by Georgia Gwinnett College?”

While the full context of his quotes remain unclear, it appears Zhou had been rebutting someone who’d complained about his politically incorrect rhetoric on illegal immigration.

“I am against political correctness. I speak truth to power in class and my students learn about the financial drain of illegal immigration on the economy and the high crime rates of illegal immigrants. My students are ‘woke’ and are overwhelmingly against illegal immigration after taking my class,” he wrote.

Look at Nguyen’s tweet below:

Speaking with the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution afterward, she suggested that Zhou should be fired. Pushing for the termination or deplatforming of conservatives is a common left-wing tactic.

“I have concerns about him teaching those things in a classroom,” she said, adding that 70 percent of Georgia Gwinnett College’s students are either black, Asian or Hispanic.

It’s unclear what the students’ race has to do with illegal immigration …

Judging by the replies she’s received on social media, not many agree with her.


Some do agree, however.

“He should be fired. His rhetoric is disturbing and should be nowhere near a classroom,” a user named “Furflake” (versus snowflake …) whined.

“He’s awful! I reported him and sent screen shots of his harassment and received a canned response from the university president. He also brags about recruiting his students to volunteer for Handel,” another Twitter user, this one purporting to be a former GGC student, wrote.

Yet according to, Zhou maintains a fairly positive 3.6 rating, with 74 percent of his former students saying that would take his course again …



Zhou has for his part made it clear that he isn’t bothered or intimidated by the criticism.

“Everybody has free speech, so [Nguyen’s] welcome to complain,” he said to AJC.

“If you are going to to reward illegal immigrants, there will be more illegal immigrants,” he continued, adding that if anybody disagrees, he’d appreciate it if they could offer a “convincing argument” and “present evidence.”

Versus, say, screaming “RACIST,” “BIGOT,” “NAZI,” etc.

Speaking of people whom the left loathe, Zhou happens to be a huge fan of Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp:

Because he’s clearly a proud Republican, Zhou will likely face much more criticism (not to mention smears and hit pieces) going forward.
