Connecticut College Professor Accused of Racist, Anti-Palestinian Facebook Post

A firestorm of controversy has erupted on the normally quiet campus of Connecticut College in New London over a philosophy professor’s Facebook post [shown above] that many are claiming was racist toward Palestinians.

The professor, Andrew Pessin, said the entire event has been taken out of context and that the outcry is not about his alleged racism, but is a concerted effort to attack his reputation because of his pro-Israel point of view.

The Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity at Connecticut college, as well as the history department have issued statements to the college community condemning hate speech, and raising the issue of censorship on college campuses.

The “CCSRE would like to clearly state that we do not condone speech filled with bigotry and hate particularly when that speech uses dehumanizing language and incites or celebrates violence and brutality,” an email read…

Truth: It’s the new hate speech.

    Without lying, the Left could get no one to ever support them.
    They have to lie!
    If forced to tell the truth about their aims and motivations, they would all evaporate tomorrow as any kind of moral or sane force.

      I heard some guys at work the other day talking about guaranteed income for everyone.

      By the way, they thought $40000 yearly was the place to start.

    The prof., is 100% correct, the “palestinian” Arabs are BEASTS!

    The only ones more evil than they, are the ones who make excuses for them, and persecute anyone who tries to warn about them.

    Israel needs to send 50 convicted mass murderers from their prisons to this school in Connecticut.

    I can’t believe they actually have a ‘comparative race and ethnicity center”. How can that exist in the 21st century? And how do they actually study that without their t?iny minds being overcome by cognative dissonance and exploding all over their labs

  • Excellent analysis (and analogy) by Prof. Pessin. Those who accuse him of bigotry are another species of mad dog.
