Two Professors Face Discipline After Posting Flyers Denouncing a Conservative Colleague

There is an interesting and difficult free speech controversy brewing at Tennessee Tech University.  Two professors, Julia Gruber and Andrew Smith, circulated a flyer accusing another professor, Andrew Donadio, of being a racist and saying that he is “on our list.” They are now facing possible discipline.  It appears that this mess all started because Donadio applauded a bit too loudly at a meeting of the Putnam County School Board. Seriously.According to sites like Inside Higher Education, Gruber (as associate professor of German) was present at the meeting considering a demand to change the name of the Algood Middle School Redskins. The board rejected the proposal and Donadio, an assistant professor of nursing at Tennessee Tech as well as a local county commissioner, applauded loudly. What he did not know was that Gruber was sitting in front of him and found his applauding excessive and offensive.Gruber then contacted Smith, a professor of English at Tennessee Tech. Smith had a gripe with Donadio over his serving as the adviser for Turning Point U.S.A.  The conservative group is often the target of liberal professors and activists because it maintains a Professor Watchlist that tracks faculty who express “radical” or biased remarks in class.  The group insists that it is seeking to not only expose such bias but to allow students to avoid such classes.Smith and Gruber distributed a menacing-looking flyer of Donadio on a chair of knives (ala The Game of Thrones) that accused him of “hate speech” and being a racist. There is no evidence to support either claim.

The flyer stated in part:

“This racist college professor thought it would be a great idea to help start a Tennessee Tech chapter for this national hate group, where racist students can unite to harass, threaten, intimidate, and terrorize persons of color, feminists, liberals, and the like, especially [sic] their teachers. Their organization created a national “Professor Watchlist” to harass and intimidate progressive educators, including many women, African-American, and Muslim professors…

Professor Donadio and Turning Point USA. You are on our list. Your hate & hypocrisy are not welcome at Tennessee Tech. No Unity With Racists. Hate Speech Is Not Free Speech.”

After a complaint was filed by Donadio, campus police identified the professors from security footage. The flyer’s reference to being on a list was viewed as threatening and the professors were also found to be in violation of two express policies, First, they are required to “conduct themselves fairly, honestly, in good faith and in accordance with the highest ethical and professional standards.” Second, they are required  to create “an environment that promotes academic freedom, diversity, fair treatment and respect for all faculty, staff, students and the general public.”

It is hard to defend the conduct of Smith and Gruber, who clearly sought to harass a colleague for his political views.  They embody the intolerance for opposing views that is destroying higher education and free speech. Turning Point is a recognized student group on campus that Smith and Gruber were seeking to demonize and label a racist. The obvious intent is to make it more difficult for students and faculty to support the group.

However, this was also an act of free speech. They are entitled to speak out against a colleague and they insist that the flyer’s reference to the list was meant to model the listing by Turning Point.  I do not see the reference as a credible threat.

My second concern is that the faculty policies are so generally and ambiguously written that they can be used arbitrarily or capriciously.

That leaves us in a muddle.  The actions of Smith and Gruber were in my view reprehensible in labeling a colleague as a racist who engages in hate speech. It was unfair and unsupported. If it were true, Smith and Gruber could have filed a complaint with the university. They could also have written or spoken against his views rather than anonymously spread rumors or allegations. They lacked the integrity or the courage to do either.

Instead, they sought to trigger a campus backlash against a colleague.  It is difficult therefore to accept their effort to claim victim status after they sought to harass Donadio because he applauded too loudly and holds views that they oppose.

I believe that the conduct of Smith and Gruber are worthy of condemnation and a possible official reprimand.  I would not support termination or stripping them of tenure. Repeated conduct could warrant greater punishment. This is a close question for me frankly since there are free speech values at stake on both sides. The issue for me is the effort to harass and defame a colleague in this type of campaign.  They also sought to label a student group as racist without making any formal complaint or offer any evidence to support that charge.

One course could be for Donadio to seek civil liability for defamation but that avenue would present serious challenges.  Donadio is a public official and a public figure due to his county position and his public advocacy.

The standard for defamation for public figures and officials in the United States is the product of a decision over 50 years ago in New York Times v. Sullivan. Ironically, this is precisely the environment in which the opinion was written. The case came out of the highly divisive period of the civil rights movement. The New York Times had run an advertisement referring to abuses of civil rights marchers and the arrest of Martin Luther King Jr. seven times. The Montgomery Public Safety commissioner, L. B. Sullivan, sued for defamation and won under Alabama law. He was awarded $500,000 — a huge judgment for the time. Sullivan’s lawsuit was one of a number of civil actions brought under state laws that targeted Northern media covering the violence against freedom marchers. The judgments represented a viable threat to both media and average citizens in criticizing our politicians.

The Supreme Court ruled that tort law could not be used to overcome First Amendment protections for free speech or the free press. The Court sought to create “breathing space” for the media by articulating that standard that now applies to both public officials and public figures.

It would be difficult to sue Smith and Gruber over claims that Donadio is a racist since that can be viewed as opinion and thus protected speech. Tort liability for the statements in the flyer would contravene core free speech rights.

Of course, Smith and Gruber were clearly trying to harass and silence Donadio (as well as students who are members of this group) but they are not the measure of free speech principles.  They are the test of free speech principles. We often have to protect the speech of individuals like Smith and Gruber who little tolerance or respect for either the free speech or academic freedom rights of others.

According to the school newspaper The Oracle, Smith and Gruber were found guilty of violating university policies and are awaiting a decision on their punishment.

  1. I seen this article about 2 more Commie/Nazi type professors at this Tennessee college so it seems as good a placew as any to post the video below.

    People just need to start calling those Commie/Nazi aholes what they are in public.

    Now I see people everywhere, in mass, starting to speak out against the Biden/Harris/Dem/Rino Creeps.

    I noticed the large crowd size this nice attorney lady draws out in Cali speaking out against those same ole Commie/Nazis.

  2. The Sullivan decision shows what happens when the Court focusses too much on its sympathies in the case at hand, and not on a future where the tables are turned.

    We still don’t know if free speech goes so far as to protect a slanderous misinformation campaign directed at an individual by a well-funded anonymous organization. But, in the absence of clarification (in the form of restoring the defamation-deterrence rights of public persons), professional character assassination in the public sphere will only be encouraged by Sullivan. Nick Sandmann had going for himself being a minor, and not a public person (at the time of CNN’s and WaPo’s campaigns).

  3. Turley: “They also sought to label a student group as racist without making any formal complaint or offer any evidence to support that charge.”

    Turley complaining about no evidence to support a charge? Ho ho ho! As if there was ANY evidence to support Trump’s lie that the election was stolen on account of MASSIVE systemic fraud! Of course, Turley’s employer, Fox News, will have its day in court to defend itself from a charge of defamation for conspiring with Trump lawyers, among others, to broadcast this fake narrative to millions to the financial detriment of the plaintiffs. We will the discover (if Fox does not settle out if court) if there is any TRUTH behind the “Stop the Steal” narrative.

    But don’t expect Turley to open his mouth on the matter. He has been silent ever since the filing of the billion dollar lawsuits. Nor did he note in passing much less defend the highly popular Lou Dobbs who was summarily “cancelled” by Fox the day after the lawsuits. Some Free Speech advocate! Turley conveniently looks the other way when Fox expects him to keep his mouth shut…

  4. These rabid profs knowingly slandered Donadio and were too cowardly to do it publicly. These rabid profs the people the Democrats have empowered. And actually they don’t realize how hypocritical they are as they are the hate speechers – so maybe they don’t deserve free speech according to their statement. If we treat Gruber and Smith the way they treat others they should clearly be fired and run out of town. IF those are their new rules they should be punished accordingly. Democrats need a taste of their own medicine.

  5. Biden has just told the world that they need to live up to their green responsibilities. How do you say “put it where the sun don’t shine” in Chinese?

  6. GET WOKE TO THE GENIUS OF THE AMERICAN FOUNDERS – THEIR CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS

    “The end justifies the means” meaning is brutal power for brutal power’s sake.

    “[Communists] head[s] [are] filled with worms.”

    “The end may justify the means as long as there is something that justifies the end.”

    – Leon Trotsky, Their Morals and Ours, 1938
    ____________

    “Trotsky’s head was filled with worms.”

    “The 20th century, in my view, started going seriously wrong with the Marxists—apart from that family feud among the progeny of Queen Victoria, which resulted in the first World War, which led inevitably to the second World War. But Marx himself apparently never said that the ends justify the means. It was the Bolsheviks’ favorite tactician, Leon Trotsky, who adopted it as the movement’s philosophical underpinning. After all, when you’re working to increase social development, break the dominance of man (singular) over man (plural), and bring about the blessings of utopia—it doesn’t matter how many banks you rob, lies you tell, and whose heads you crack. “The end may justify the means as long as there is something that justifies the end,” Trotsky wrote in Their Morals and Ours. This was in 1938, after Stalin had already killed millions in the Ukraine and devoured every member of his own party. To me, this dictum sounds like circular reasoning. Trotsky’s head was filled with worms.”

      1. You, sir are a liar and a fraud – you are a defender of the eminently assailable, oppressive and tyrannical communism.

        Regarding China, please ask the Uyghurs, the freedom seeking people of Hong Kong, those in fear of communist invasion in Taiwan, and the other threatened countries which border that dangerous and illegitimate communist state, if they perceive threats from dead communism and the “Reign of Terror” of that communist-in-name-only regime.

        To reiterate:

        Communism is not dead. Communism has “reformed” under a public relations campaign. Communism has redefined and cloaked its principles in unconstitutional Newspeak and prevarication.

        – Central Planning includes governmental requirements for wholly unconstitutional “stimulus,” solar panels, electric cars, elimination of carbon footprints by ~ 2030, Quantitative Easing, dollar printing, etc.

        – Control of the Means of Production persists in pervasive and irrefutably unconstitutional “regulation,” understanding that the Constitution limits and restricts governmental regulation to money, the “flow” of commerce among states and land and naval Forces.

        – Redistribution of Wealth is every unconstitutional program and law related to the War on Poverty since 1965, including the unconstitutional 2021 Joke Biden stimulus bill and charity party.

        – Social Engineering is entirely unconstitutional communism as affirmative action, quotas, forced busing, generational welfare, WIC, SNAP, TANF, HAMP, HARP, HUD, HHS, Obamacare, unconstitutional and unfair “Fair Housing” laws, unconstitutional and discriminatory “Non-Discrimination” laws, incoherent and biased “hate crime” laws, etc.

        Communism is alive and well in the United States of America despite its Constitution and Bill of Rights.

        Kamala Harris is an unaccomplished, Empty Trouser Suit and the fraudulent result of a “rigged” election, in the primaries, of which, she couldn’t raise a dollar or get a vote, and quickly withdrew. She paid for faux ascendance with sexual favors – she didn’t say “NO” like Me Too Christine Ballsey Ford, and all the Harvey Weinstein girls, she said “YES!” She prosecuted marijuana use while using marijuana. She is a conforming communist, consumed by an aberrant desire for personal power for personal power’s sake as compensation for her existence as a deficient, inadequate, barren woman with no raison d’etre. As Hillary Clinton bore one child for political appearances, Kamala Harris rented a nice white family for the last election. Kamala Harris will never be a “natural born citizen” as both her parents were not citizens at the time of the candidate’s birth, and Kamala Harris will never be eligible for vice president or president. Kamala Harris IS a pervasive tragedy.

        This administration reflects its namesake: Joke Biden.

  8. The Chinese Communist (liberal, progressive, socialist, democrat, RINO) Cultural Revolution
    ________________________________________________________________________

    “The goal of socialism is communism.”

    – Vladimir Lenin
    ____________

    Mao launched the so-called Cultural Revolution (known in full as the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution) in August 1966, at a meeting of the Plenum of the Central Committee. He shut down the nation’s schools, calling for a massive youth mobilization to take current party leaders to task for their embrace of bourgeois values and lack of revolutionary spirit. In the months that followed, the movement escalated quickly as the students formed paramilitary groups called the Red Guards and attacked and harassed members of China’s elderly and intellectual population. A personality cult quickly sprang up around Mao, similar to that which existed for Josef Stalin, with different factions of the movement claiming the true interpretation of Maoist thought.

    – Wiki

    1. Yeah but the Chinese and the Russians are a mob of easily-lead idiots.

      They were slaughtering each other wholesale while America was innovating cars, airplanes, computers – everything, really, in the last 200 years.

      Americans aren’t that gullible and stupid, or at least we weren’t.

      Communism is no more. It died in the 1980s alongside disco.

      Russia is a dysfunctional kleptocracy and China is a grotesquely overpopulated country that uses state-controlled capitalism in a desperate attempt to feed 1.4 billion people.

      And why is that California – the most liberal/progressive/socialist/democrat/RINO state in the union – is by far the most progressive/productive/prosperous.

      By far. Texas is a distant second, as they always will be.

      Why is it that Repoublican administrations leave America and the economy in a shambles (See: Bush43, Schwarzenegger, Trump) and the Democrats have sweep in and clean it up?

      Over and over again.

      Republicans screw it up. Democrats clean it up.

      Biden is true MAGA.

      1. Republicans screw it up. What states have the most homeless? What states have the most poverty? What states have the worst schools? What states have the highest crime rate? What party has controlled these states for 40 years. I’ve heard this “Republican screw it up canard for 40 years. If you know the answers to my questions and you can still quote this tripe than you are just not honest with the rest of us nor to yourself. Are you that much in love with the “D” before your affiliation that you let it infest your reason.

      2. I don’t know, Bengy. It seems there are quite a few “easily-lead idiots” in your party who are more than happy to shred the constitution.

        1. Shred the Constitution?

          Trump ate the Constitution and shit the 10 Commandments.

          He encouraged a mob of mullet-headed proles to raid the Capitol and disrupt an election.

          Have the Democrats ever done anything that heinous?

          How have the Democrats/left shredded the Constitution?

          1. The Cretin’s of the left (Woke) cannot see the forest for the trees. They continue to believe in Socialism and that their intellect is beyond reproach. They have no argument except look over there it is was worse (in their estimation).. The Woke Left is destroying America, trying to shred the Constitution, remove history and accusing everyone they disagree with that they are whatever negative adjective comes to mind. I’ll quote P.T. Barnum “Exposing an illusion is not the same as revealing a truth.” and “The greatest humbug of all is the man who believes—or pretends to believe—that everything and everybody are humbugs.”

            1. Well I live in one of the wealthiest towns in California surrounded by smart, prosperous, progressive people, in a state that is run by Democrats or the left or Socialists or the Woke or whatever you want to call them.

              California is light years ahead of everyone else in productivity and prosperity so we must be doing something right, no?

              1. “California is light years ahead of everyone else in productivity and prosperity so we must be doing something right, no?”

                “The Golden State came in dead last in the rankings, released earlier this week in partnership with McKinsey & Co.

                The rankings considered two sets of metrics for each state:

                Natural environment, comprising drinking-water quality, air quality, and pollution and industrial toxins.
                Social environment, comprising community engagement, social support, and voter participation.”

                They have a robust economy but nobody seems to care since you’re basically a vassal to the multi-national corporations occupying the land there.

              3. Having developed and built numerous commercial properties in Santa Clara and Palo Alto in the late 70’s I can attest there were many smart people there, but it was no different than Bullhead Village, Arizona during the era. Intelligence doesn’t equate to location. California of the 70’s sure isn’t what it is today, having massive problems with all sectors of society. The politics of California are rigid and non-inclusive. Does California have the answers to America’s problems in my opinion NO, not any more than say Kansas does. When government becomes exclusionary as we are currently experiencing, problems become exacerbated and all sides take to their respective corners, point their fingers at each other accusatorially as the problem. I do believe that the current attitude of the Woke is detrimental to the future of the United States of America, and if successful with spiral our Country into a dingy place.

          2. Benji ; Trump did no such thing . The only party literally shitting on and at the constitution is scum like lord senile darth Baizou Biden of chyna. You know the puppet prez that said NO AMENDMENT IS ABSOLUTE…yeah that fire starter !!!.
            Your savior has run his mouth before a murder trial with is vomit….on top of this all he has consistently been against the American people unless they bow to his faux covid scheme(s). People like you are blind woke….while we are awake.

            Just embarrassing.

        2. Kamala is no more than an anchor baby. I do not believe there is a requirement in the Constitution that the Vice President be a “natural born citizen”. Refer to Article II, Section 1, paragraph 5.

      4. Benji ; You are so full of cow petard extract I can’t even believe you believe the red flag waving vomit you shout out. Communism is alive and well. It is an oppressive system taking people and making them square pegs and jamming them in round holes…or else. It is a system antithetical to freedom… and china is anything but free. Run your mouth about chairman Winnie the pooh Xi ….and you will disappear. And yet we have you benji….the fanboy for a party Zeig heil demoratzi party…the party of intolerance , hate and pro government over common sense. People are you are the cancer to our once free society.

      5. Dems are making racial Bolshevism (Critical Race theory) the official ideology of the American Empire. Along with their Woke Capital allies, they are creating a totalitarian police state to corral their ideological enemies. You can’t find a single Democrat pol who will denounce the left-wing neo-McCarthyist blacklists and purges of “cancel culture” or the violent mobs of BLM/Antifa. The Dems either endorse all this or claim it’s a “myth” or a “hoax.” The Dems are also gung-ho for endless cheap labor and non-stop imperialist wars. THe GOP has to rid itself of the corrupt Uniparty hacks and declare independence from this loathsome corruption.

    2. The liberals won’t read it, but every freedom-loving American should read “Life and Death in Shanghai” by Nien Cheng. We are heading in the same direction at breakneck speed.

  9. The communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs) are rabidly pursuing totalitarian control; nullification of the U.S. Constitution; full imposition of the Communist Manifesto.

    Great Purge

    The Great Purge or the Great Terror (Russian: Большой террор), also known as the Year of ’37 (37-ой год, Tridtsat sedmoi god) and the Yezhovschina (‘period of Yezhov’),[5] was Stalin’s campaign of political repression in the Soviet Union that occurred from 1936 to 1938.[6] It involved a large-scale repression of relatively wealthy peasants (kulaks); ethnic cleansing operations against ethnic minorities; a purge of the Communist Party, of government officials, and of the Red Army leadership; widespread police surveillance; suspicion of saboteurs; counter-revolutionaries; imprisonment; and arbitrary executions.[7] Historians estimate the total number of deaths due to Stalinist repression in 1937–38 to be between 950,000 to 1.2 million.[1]

    The “Kulak Operation” and the targeting of national minorities were the main components of the Great Terror. Together these two actions accounted for nine-tenths of the death sentences and three-quarters of Gulag prison camp sentences.

    The term repression was officially used to describe the prosecution of people considered counter-revolutionaries and enemies of the people by the leader of the Soviet Union at the time, Joseph Stalin. Historians debate the causes of the purge, such as Stalin’s paranoia, or his desire to remove dissenters from the Communist Party or to consolidate his authority. The purges began in the Red Army, and the techniques developed there were quickly adapted to purges in other sectors.[9] Most public attention was focused on the purge of certain parts of the leadership of the Communist Party, as well as of government bureaucrats and leaders of the armed forces, most of whom were Party members. The campaigns also affected many other categories of the society: intelligentsia, peasants—especially those lending out money or wealth (kulaks)—and professionals.[10]

  10. Joseph Stalin: “ We have you on our list”. Mafia boss: “We have you on our list”. You should also take note that your family is “on our list”. Instead of hidden insinuation they should be more specific about their final solution. They have the right of free speech and we have the right to tell people who they really are.

  11. Thought liberals are prone to violence, this does not mean Conservatives are immune. I’m a conservative and I would get violent with these two professors had it be me they targeted. And I’m 100% serious. I would get very violent with the both of them. I would show all liberals that I do not discriminate on gender and would physically assault both of them equally and harshly. We are at war. This is serious.

  12. I get Professor Turley’s dilemma about affording these two Woke Supremacists their freedom of speech on campus. But part of the problem with people like these is they deny others the liberties they take for granted. You can’t trust them as educators because they don’t educate, all they’re capable of is grooming children into the same constricted way of thinking in which they themselves were groomed.

    It may not be legal to get rid of them, but it would certainly be wise.

    Perhaps it would be beneficial for the university to encourage a debate between the three of them. It may look like it’s two against one, but it’s not. When you’re dealing with the ideologically possessed, they’re all the same thing whether you’re dealing with one or legion.

    1. One of the properties of a “right” is that it doesn’t encroach on the rights of others.

  13. Has this country ever been dumber and more time-wastingly petty than now.

    All this “woke” “libtard” “QAnon” “BLM” “Antifa” “Cancel” “Chemtrails” “Deep State” BS is just embarrassing = The dumbest 49% of American proles shooting spitwads at the other dumbest 49% of American proles, while the 1% hover above it all, thank the stars they aren’t that dumb, and throw peanuts at all the idiots fighting over things they don’t understand and that don’t matter anyway.

    I agree with this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8v0TXRTu4E

    And this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMGz3sXRhvE

      1. This country is awash in petty, loud, proletarian stupidity.

        Putin is laughing in his Borscht. Xi is flicking his abacus furiously.

        Or maybe it’s always been this stupid and social media has just exposed the stupidity inherent in the system.

        1. Newsom is getting recalled because of his stupidity. Caitlyn Jenner may be the next Governor of California and put an end to your state’s one-party rule. It could happen.

          President Biden ‘masked up’ for his video conference today with world leaders. He was the only world leader wearing a mask on a video call. He thought it was protecting him from a computer virus. You bet Putin, Xi, and the rest of the world leaders are laughing….and exploiting Jo Joe’s obvious weakness as a leader. The world knows he’s a puppet.

          1. Newsome will survive the recall and Caitlyn Jenner is running for governor for the same reason she got a sex change. Ratings. Attention. Money. Boredom. Age.

            I see Caitlyn Jenner at the Starbucks in Trancas all the time and it’s weird to see Bruce Jenner as a woman.

            It would be like 20 years from now if Tom Brady was a woman. Caitlyn Jenner is a joke.

            1. Benji ; you really think newscum will survive a recall ?. Seems funny how newscum was all for any kind of unhindered and untraceable voting ….but get hit with a recall for his absolute comical running of the schitthole kalifornica , and whammo he is demanding signature verification and more…hypocrisy on a grand scale. But being pig nose Pelosi’s nephew he imbued him with a gargantuan and bloated sense of fake net worth.
              Newscum has created the biggest and most diverse population of homeless….mor ehuman feces on city streets per yard than ANY city on earth. Hell even liberal Joe Rogan left that craptasticular haven of liberal one sided speak. And yet benji thinks because the fecal lump he abodes in it’s better. What a load brother…what a load !!!.

    1. The fact that you feel the need to spout such ignorant lies all over this particular JT blog post shows how threatened you are by those of us who aren’t easily fooled and gaslighted by media or you.

  14. Is this what in America’s future? Quoted from Heritage.org
    “…The most inhumane example of Mao’s contempt for human life came when he ordered the collectivization of China’s agriculture under the ironic slogan, the “Great Leap Forward.” …”when [Mao} sensed that revolutionary fervor in China was waning, Mao proclaimed the Cultural Revolution. Gangs of Red Guards — young men and women between 14 and 21 — roamed the cities targeting revisionists and other enemies of the state, especially teachers.
    “…Professors were dressed in grotesque clothes and dunce caps, their faces smeared with ink. They were then forced to get down on all fours and bark like dogs. Some were beaten to death, some even eaten — all for the promulgation of Maoism…”
    https://time.com/4329308/cultural-revolution-history-totalitarianism/, “…He ruled China as an autocratic and totalitarian regime responsible for mass repression, as well as destruction of religious and cultural artifacts and sites…”
    From Wikipedia “Character assassination (CA) is a deliberate and sustained effort to damage the reputation or credibility of an individual.[1] The term could also be selectively applied to social groups and institutions. Agents of character assassinations employ a mix of open and covert methods to achieve their goals, such as raising false accusations, planting and fostering rumors, and manipulating information….”
    “…character assassination is an intentional attempt, usually by a narcissist and/or his or her codependents, to influence the portrayal or reputation of someone in such a way as to cause others to develop an extremely negative or unappealing perception of him or her. It typically involves deliberate exaggeration or manipulation of facts, the spreading of rumors and deliberate misinformation to present an untrue picture of the targeted person, and unwarranted and excessive criticism…”

      1. Olly: I was trying my mightiest to be polite, but YOU are correct in some woke places the future I asked about has arrived, and is on the horizon in America not currently infected with the Woke disease. The phase “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” is germane when taking a considered look at DC’s current leadership. This then reinforces the wokesters to think they can say and do as they wish without recourse. I can only hope that the pendulum swings back before the yoke breaks.

        1. You think DC’s current leadership is corrupt?

          Oh that’s right, Kamala Harris cheated on her husband, slept with a Chippendale’s dancer and paid him $130,000 to keep quiet.

          Just before he took office, Biden lost a $25 million lawsuit for defrauding students with his Biden University.

          Hunter Biden was fined $2 million for stealing from is own charity and is now allowed to run a charity in New York ever again.

          President Biden kissed Putin’s ass by trying to sweet-talk Russia back in the G7, while Trudeau and Merkl and the others snickered in their handkerchiefs.

          And after the election, Biden encourages his followers to raid Mar A Lago and pee in the champagne fountain and put huge divots in the golf course with their Teslas.

          Oh wait, that was all Trump.

          The current leadership are reminding America what leadership is all about: Having a vision of the future and working toward it.

          That’s MAGA.

          Not parading around in a stupid red hat and attempting nothing and accomplishing nothing.

          The dumbest 50% of America just had a president as vulgar, short-sighted and dumb as they are.

          With the expected result.

          Trump screwed up the economy even worse than Bush43, if that was possible.

          Time to Make America Great Again, and Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure and jobs package is an extension of the $465 million loan the Obama administration made to Tesla.

          They modernized Fremont to build the S, paid the loan back five years early and created tens of thousands of jobs and hundreds of billions in wealth.

          That’s MAGA. That’s the Green New Deal.

          Did Trump attempt or accomplish anything remotely that ambitious or successful?

          No, he didn’t. He walked around with a stupid red hat.

          1. “The dumbest 50% of America just had a president as vulgar, short-sighted and dumb as they are.”

            Yes. And some of them spend their days on this blog.

            1. We are still waiting for you to demonstrate your superior intelligence Ben. So far you have littered the blog with dozens of lies and distorted facts. The number of real facts you provide is near nil. I will wait for you to counter the multiple counters by John and Karen or the one fact I provided.

              You will continue on your present way hoping some people are dumb enough to remember a lie and think it true, but the truth is, when intelligence is measured you barely register.

              SM

          2. Benjamin Michael Marcus:

            If Trump “screwed up the economy”, then why is Biden bragging that it’s the best economy since 1984? He hasn’t implemented the new taxes that will hit next year. In just a few months, he’s taking credit for Trump’s booming economy, the economy he refused to admit was good. Under Trump, the economy was gaining in massive jumps after the initial hit with Covid, and it was roaring prior to that. Wait until Biden’s economic policies get implemented, and then we’ll assess how he’s doing. When economic and foreign policy get implemented, and businesses and individuals start paying for them, is when any president should be judged. It was ridiculous to claim that it was Obama’s economy 4 years later. If the country’s economy is doing well in a few years, then that will reflect well upon Biden.

            “Did Trump attempt or accomplish anything remotely that ambitious or successful?”
            1. Broke all records in releasing a vaccine to fight a global pandemic. Democrats claimed he was lying that he could get the vaccine released within the year. He was right. Not only that, but they were administering 983,000 shots daily, basically Biden’s goal of a million a day. These vaccines will save so many people. Biden lied and claimed Trump had no plan instead of admitting under the Trump Administration, the goal of 1 million shots a day was virtually already met.
            2. 4 Middle East peace deals that John Kerry and Biden claimed were impossible
            3. Lowest black unemployment since the figures were ever recorded.

            That’s just a few. Sorry, but if you really can’t think of a single thing that Trump accomplished, then you’re a brainwashed partisan. I despised Obama for taking affordable healthcare away from me, but he (very) occasionally accomplished something I agreed with.

            You think leadership is about saying that you can’t go into a 7 eleven unless you have a “slight Indian accent”? Yes, Biden really said that. Or if you don’t vote for him, “you ain’t black.” Or, more recently, calling Republicans dumb Neanderthals, or claiming America is racist. Biden is incredibly divisive. Plus he lied about Hunter Biden’s laptop and may have been involved.

            He’s mentally and physically struggling, and he’s weak. This is a dangerous failing to have on the world stage. We had no new wars during Trump’s presidency. Biden caused the loss of jobs and bombed Syria shortly upon taking office.

          3. Benjamin tries to say a lot of things but the first thing one has to note is that Ben lies and is unable to defend his position. John has taken on Ben point by point and has done that before. Is Ben able to respond? No. Why can’t he respond. Because he either doesn’t know his facts are lies and he is a liar as well.

            “Did Trump attempt or accomplish anything remotely that ambitious or successful?”

            This question has been answered over and over again by many people but Ben repeats lies. I’ll take one item at a time and then let us see if Ben is able to counter.

            It was a known “FACT” that a vaccine for COVID would take 3-5 years if it could ever be produced. Trump was laughed at when he said it could be produced earlier and possibly within a year.

            The vaccine came in earlier than what he stated. That is an accomplishment. Now Ben can run away like his other personalities or he can try and deflect from the question.

            Was Trump wrong saying the vaccine could be created and that he thought it could be created in less than a year?

            SM

        2. I agree with you George. I believe however that the Marxists have exploited conservative’s tendency for polite dialogue. It’s well past the time for calling their Leftist ideology what it is: a cancer on this country. Cancer doesn’t deserve anything polite. It has no right to exist within our body politic.

          1. Olly, I agree, and would add that Republicans in office do not support each other to the degree that Democrats do.

            1. Well that’s true. Don’t be surprised if some iteration of the MAGA movement doesn’t come out with a platform that will redefine the Republican party. Establishment Republicans will either fully embrace it or face being primaried. It will be like the Tea Party, but on steroids.

  15. I can’t believe this crap happened in Tennessee, which is one of the most conservative states in the union. Those two professors should be terminated and forced to leave the state. After all, Tennessee Tech is not a liberal arts school, it’s a technical school. Furthermore, it’s in Cookville in Middle Tennessee, only a hundred miles NE of Pulaski, the birthplace of the Klan.

  16. It is a real dirtbag thing to do to falsely claim someone is racist, without any supporting evidence.

    Turning Point USA is not racist. I’ve watched many of their Youtube videos. Candace Owens is a regular contributor. It requires a total suspension of critical thinking to declare the organization racist.

    Turning Point USA opposes the evolution of the education system into Democrat madrassas where conservatives are harassed. Just like the topic of Turley’s blog post.

    If you criticize Democrats, they’ll call you racist, fascist, or some kind of “phobe.” It doesn’t matter if it’s not true. All they have to do is lie about you often enough, and they’ll succeed in character assassination where they would have failed in a debate on the merits of the argument.

    I don’t even recognize the Democrat Party anymore. I used to occasionally vote for Democrats and Democrat policies. I used to think both parties had much in common, including a love of country. I sincerely believe that we are in the time leading up to the rise of yet another Leftists authoritarian regime that will abuse human rights, as it has throughout history. It’s frustrating, because Democrats just turn a blind eye.

    They are getting trained. Brainwashed. Democrats whom I’ve long thought were kind and intelligent have gradually succumbed to propaganda. I’ve watched their social media devolve until they’re just parroting easily disprovable propaganda, like the lie that Trump called white supremacists “very fine people.” 5 minutes on Google would have put the lie to that statement. They jump to conclusions about police use of force all the time, and repeat the slogan that all cops are racist. I watched them gradually become anti-capitalist and in favor of the slavery of socialism. When presented with facts, they just don’t want to believe they might be wrong.

    Someone I’ve known for many years posted, in all seriousness, that Democrats were peaceful protestors, there were no riots, and it was Christians that people needed to arm themselves against. He said he should get a gun to protect himself from judgmental Christians.
