College Prof ADVOCATES for men to sexually assault women - KEEPS HIS JOB

On his blog site, Brooklyn College Associate Professor Mitchell Langbert composed a truly jaw-dropping offensive post titled “Kavanaugh”. He begins the post by stating, “If someone did not commit sexual assault in high school, he is not a member of the male sex.” In an attempt to smear the Democrats, he equates sexual assault to nothing more than spin-the-bottle, while accusing democrats of “characterizing” the adolescent game, played by 15- year olds, as “rape”. He proceeds to call the Democrats “a party of pink tutu-wearing pansies...totalitarian sissies who lack virility...or the masculine judgement that has characterized the greatest civilizations.” Most ironically, he also claims that the Democrats “lack...a sense of decency.” He concludes, “In the future, having committed sexual assault ought to be a prerequisite for all appointments, judicial and political.”




Mark Harris, the wanna-be “tutu-wearing pansy”, might have to hold off on his “big pink cupcake” celebration, as it appears that Brooklyn College is supporting their associate professor. Rather than...protecting the security and well-being of her students, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Anne Lopes, has decided to use this moment as a platform to educate the world on the importance of the First Amendment. She also draws attention to the upcoming student protest on the East Quad as well as a website forum which has been created for people “to share and discuss their...reflections”.

2. It is truly unfortunate that hate speech is tolerated

At this university. I hope prospective students will vote with their feet.

8. Please define "hate speech."

Having done so, now tell me why it's not Constitutionally protected.

Thanks.

12. He said if you don't sexually assault women then you are not a man

Turning sexual assault of a female into some sort of male ritual of passage, I think qualifies as mysogynistic hate speech.

Don't you?

13. All you have to do is google. There are limits on free speech

Rights, particularly where it is disruptive in educational settings. Here, the speaker advocates violence against women. Take a look at just one example of a university’s policy and you’ll see a clear violation.

“Illegal speech activity, not protected by the U.S. or California Constitutions or by this policy, includes speech that promotes actual violence or harm, constitutes criminal harassment, or words which by their very utterance would incite an immediate breach of the peace (“fighting words”).“ (Humboldt U policy).

Edited to add: I advocated prospective students’ voting with their feet. This is a perfectly reasonable expression of their free speech rights, to say nothing of their rights to choose any university at which to study. They have no obligation to enroll at a university where comments creating a hostile environment toward women or other groups are allowed with impunity. And donors have no obligation either. I think the provost will reconsider her position in the coming days.

21. "There are limits on free speech."

For sure. It's not clear, regarding faculty members, what gets them fired and what does not get them fired. My position on that is "it's too soon to tell." The thread at Popehat goes into that.

Edited to add: I advocated prospective students’ voting with their feet.

Me too. If a lot of students come next year disguised as empty seats, they will be well within their rights.

Best wishes.

5. A professor of "Business" who should have minded his own...

With all due apologies to any DUers who may profess "Business," my humble opinion is that this discipline does not belong in the academy. Sure, let's have plenty of Business Schools, but let's not pretend that this has anything to do with what ideally ought to be the goals and values of university studies. Again, I don't mean to offend. Just my personal view.

6. I can't ever wrap my head around how anyone can hold such views.

It's completely foreign to my psyche. It's unimaginable that a person could truly believe such horrifying, reality-defying nonsense.

7. Here's a long thread on that from Popehat. You'll have to unroll it.

It's a complicated issue.

An imbecile named Mitchell Langbert, employed (possibly as a prank) by Brooklyn College, wrote a strivingly douchey blog post. Can he be fired, as many urge? A mini-lawsplainer. /1

9. Professor implied committing sex assault is a right of passage for men. Now he says that was satire



https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/03/us/brooklyn-college-professor-kavanaugh-comments-protests/index.html



"To have someone in a position of power espousing sexual assault is not a joke. It's something that needs to be taken seriously," she said.
She has organized a protest for 12:30 p.m. on Thursday.

Langbert, a 64-year-old associate professor who teaches on weekends, said the post was parody, and he apologized to anyone who was offended.


"I was trying to be satirical, but I guess I'm no Jonathan Swift," he said, referring to the Irish author from the 1700s. "I appreciated that it may have been in bad taste and I have apologized for that and I will again. I'm sorry people got offended. I didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings or cause them to not feel respected. I honestly didn't expect them to read it."

He said he has turned over threats of violence toward him to authorities.

That his "avatar", such as it is. This is Mitchell Langbert (left), courtesy his blog:



The Democrats have become a party of tutu-wearing pansies, totalitarian sissies who lack virility, a sense of decency, or the masculine judgment that has characterized the greatest civilizations: classical Athens, Republican Rome, 18th century Britain, and the 19th century United States.

20. He does, indeed.

This guy, however, is only 64 (same as me). Scalia was 80 when he died.

Chins up, there, Mr. Virility!

17. There have been multiple court cases spelling out limits

On this right. For example, you can’t threaten a President’s life. You can’t engage in speech that is unduly disruptive in educational settings. You can’t tell sexist or racist jokes that create or maintain a hostile work environment. You can’t slander a colleague.

So yes, it's a "division" of the government.

It's a seven-part thread.

Let us return, reluctantly, to Mitchell Langbert, the imbecile Brooklyn College prof whose First Amendment rights I talked about yesterday.

He wants to talk about satire.
