Nazi Professor Fired From Fairleigh Dickinson University

FDU's student paper reports the firing of a viciously anti-semitic and anti-black Nazi-supportin' professor:

Jacques Pluss, an adjunct professor at the Metropolitan Campus, openly discussed his March 21 dismissal from Fairleigh Dickinson in a 44-minute interview on a website of the National Socialist Movement designed with swastikas and a picture of Adolf Hitler. Pluss said he was "removed" from his classroom duties when he received a brief phone call at 5:30 p.m. from the department chairman who, he said, told him he was being released "for the convenience of the university" the following day. "I was stolen away in the night," he said. Pluss reported that he will be paid his salary through the end of this semester. He also said he will retire from "the academic world" and devote himself to the cause of the White Aryan Race Nation.

The professor speculated that he was dismissed because of his work with the National Socialist Movement on the internet, adding that the university "followed the typical Jewish, lawyerly, Hebrew line." He suggested that a "watchdog group" may have alerted FDU about his activities beyond the classroom. During one segment of the conversation, Pluss said the university did not want adverse publicity while its Division 1 basketball team was in the NCAA playoffs. He said the players are "n--- to the core" and "sit in the back of my class with CDs and earphones" listening to "ghastly rap music." Earlier in the same broadcast, Pluss referred to the "browning of America" and called FDU a "heavily Judaized institution" with a large minority student population. He said those students are "floating their way through school on taxpayer dollars," adding that it (FDU) is "not just browned, but singed." He also discussed attending a recent "gathering" of the White Aryan Race Nation in South Carolina, commenting that he had been gratified by the turnout.

I saw this story via Daily Kos. I thought it might be an April Fool's Day goof story, as college papers are wont to run, but it seems to be all too real.

Now, I certainly think this asshole should be shitcanned. But if we're not going to tolerate this form of vicious hate speech, please explain again why we're tolerating Ward Churchill's? Why does the left continue to enjoy the benefits of this absurd double-standard?

Either free speech on campus is absolute and sancrosanct or it is not. I'd prefer, actually, that it not be, tenured professor or not; I don't think a university should be forced to keep Nazis on the payroll.

And neither do I think they should be required to keep "professors" who suggest ways that their students can conduct actual violent terrorism against this country.

But again: Absolute and sancrosanct or not. And if it's not: Fire the left-wing terrorist-sympathizer and agitator Ward Churchill along with this Nazi.

The "National Socialist News Service" Notes His Firing... and whines about the chilling of dissent.

Again, I don't think Nazis and virulent racists have any place on campus... but, but, but: lefty-leaning colleges can't cry "absolute and untrammelled free speech" to protect a shitheel like Ward Churchill and then fire Nazis.

"Absolute" does not mean "sometimes absolute, when we sympathize with the person making the disgusting statements." See: that's not "absolute." That is "contingent" and "limited."
