Two Colleges-Two Professors

Hat tip Investigative Project on Terrorism

Noah Beck has a great article in IPT contrasting the disparate treatment afforded two professors at two different colleges.

First. Beck describes the current-and long-going controversy over Professor Julio Pino, a jihadist cheerleader, who is now under investigation by the FBI for possible links to ISIS. Beck contrasts the support that Kent State gives Pino, who is still teaching, with the shameful treatment afforded Andrew Pessin at Connecticut College after he had the temerity to blast Hamas-a State Department-designated terrorist group. (He called them a "rabid pit bull", an apt description.)

Here is what I think: Pessin is right. Hamas is a rabid pit bull. Since I am at teacher (albeit part-timer) at UC Irvine (Extension), maybe the Students for Justice in Palestine at UCI would like to complain to the chancellor about my presence on campus. I've been calling Hamas terrorists for years on this website. There has never been any blow back from UCI. Maybe SJP would like to make an issue of it.

So there you are, SJP: I stand with Andrew Pessin. Hamas is a rabid pit bull. I said it.

Pessin is a big boy. I get the impression he can handle the flak. Bergeron is a mindless twit.
