Rutgers Professor Compares US to ISIS

Deepa Kumar PhD

Deepa Kumar is a radical professor at Rutgers University who has tweeted out references comparing the US  to ISIS. She was featured this evening on Bill O'Reilly's show on Fox News.

Here is a report from

In this article in Inside Higher Education, Ms Kumar defends herself.

I added my own comment on the above reader thread (not yet posted). Ms Kumar, I note, was one of the faculty activists who opposed a speaking appearance by Condi Rice at Rutgers recently. Thus, she appears to be another one of these academics who feel that free speech only applies to them because opposing opinions are just wrong and therefore not fit to be heard and evaluated.

Ms Kumar has the right of free speech to trash her adopted country (She comes from India). Nobody is going to arrest her and nobody is going to fire her.

But folks like little ol' me also have a right to respond to her vile comments and express our own. If anyone has threatened her, as she says, I condemn that. But I will gladly join the ranks of "right-wing blogs" that are criticizing her.

If she appears on O'Reilly, she deserves whatever she gets.

"Will you come into my parlor, said the spider to the fly?"

Serious people don't make mistakes like that.
