Eastern CSU adjunct goes off the ranch in creative writing class, bashes Congressional Republicans and apologizes today after being lambasted in state House of Reps

|

House Minority Leader Larry Cafero just demanded an apology from ECSU adjunct prof Brent Terry, for remarks yesterday bashing Congressional Republicans. “I am personally offended,” said Cafero, using an obscure rule allowing House and Senate members to defend themselves from attacks. Cafero called Terry’s rant “inappropriate.”

Within minutes, this came from Terry:

“During my creative writing class yesterday, I allowed my own political opinions to color the discussion. I regret the language I used and I apologize to any students in the room who were offended.  As a liberal arts university, Eastern is known for encouraging debate and discussion about a host of social and political issues. My role in my own classroom is to keep the debate lively yet respectful.  I did not meet that standard yesterday, and for that I am truly sorry.”

    As head coach of Western CT State University Wrestling/Grappling Team, I think ECSU adjunct prof Brent Terry should resign given his potential to misuse his position as Professor with our state university institution.

    And so you should apologize, just like the professors who voted against having Ms. Rice speak at their college.
    What the heck is so wrong with not being a liberal democrat? Are they all fire breathing dragons? I suggest
    Teachers start doing what they being paid for teaching, and stop trying to influence young people’s thinking.
    What if we voted all the college professors out!

    99% of college professors think like he does. They follow the Abi Hoffman doctrine of “we are going to get your kids” and they think nothing of feeding these kids propaganda on a daily basis. Thank Goodness there are a small number of kids who are too strong-minded to be brainwashed and who can fight back. My children walked out of these classes on many occasions because they were too smart to soak up this leftist drivel.

  4. Please show me where this Bozo “went off the ranch?” This rant is right out of leftist indoctrinators college playbook. He didn’t apologize to anyone but the students that witnessed this screed.
    Who reported this story; who is trying to insult the intelligence of the readers?
    Off the ranch? This guy is a top “ranch hand!”

    He should be FIRED! That is disgusting vomit in a state-funded college classroom. Can U imagine if the word “liberal” was substituted for “conservative”, and “Democrat” substituted for “Republican”, how long he would have lasted. There would be no opportunity for to apologize.
