Kent State Associate Professor of History Julio Cesar Pino calls Israel “the heirs of Nazism” and has penned a long, anti-Semitic diatribe against any professors sympathetic with the Jewish people and their quaint desire not to be exterminated.
“I curse you more than the Israelis, for while The Chosen drain the blood of innocents without apologies you hide behind the mask of academic objectivity, nobility of research and the reward of teaching to foreign youth—-in a segregated university, of course,” he wrote, before signing off with “jihad until victory!”
But he did not… did not... express opposition to gay marriage, so his academic sinecure is perfectly safe.
Because that kind of talk would be, you know, totally out of line with the standards of academia.
It’s kind of sad for Kent State that this (if you’re a conservative, he’s a whack-job, if you’re a progressive, he is a champion of social justice, both mean the same thing) draws employment there. There’s a fine little cafe not far from campus — the Wild Goats cafe — that make wonderful breakfasts. And there are other reasons to like Kent State, but I’m leavin’ it there.
