    See, it's crap like this that I think makes a case for tenure reform. No college should have to be unwillingly tied to the Iranian Theothugracy just because one of their professors happens to be an absolute dripping moron.

    cpwill is smart enough not to become a propaganda tool for an Iranian regime that murders and tortures it's citizenry, denies the holocaust, and believes that kicking off a world-war is an imperative from God.

    I think this is a non news item and therefore a waste of bandwidth, however, tenure reform? I suggest you rethink your position. To do so would be an attempt to attenuate the US Constitution, namely free speech provision. These universities, therefore, cannot do what you and Mya suggest. Of course as we all know that of repression and fascism are two sides of the same coin.

    Tenure Reform =/= a violation of the First Amendment. No one is saying these idiots can't do this, I am saying that colleges have a right not to have their name drug into it.


    Fascism what utter poppycock.

    Sure you are. You want to punish or deprive people for fostering an ideal. An ideal, which again I do not support in practice, but, the expression of which is necessary to enjoy the freedoms we all have especially in an academic setting.

    Really? A university revisiting its policy on tenure violates the First Amendment?

    Not even the wildest reading of the Fourteenth Amendment would bear that out.
