And we wonder how our kids are turning into snowflakes? This professor and others like him are to blame for their hate speech towards anyone on the other side. It’s pretty disgusting and shocking that this professor wouldn’t back down…
He has removed all of his offensive tweets but Campus Reform has screen shots of them. He still has nasty political content on his twitter feed but it’s all from other people. Why hasn’t anything been done about this man who is spewing hate speech?

CLEMSON UNIVERSITY PROF HATES CONSERVATIVES:
This Clemson University professor is labeling all Donald Trump supporters as “racist scum.”
“All trump supporters, nay, all Republicans, are racist scum,” Assistant Professor of Human-Centered Computing Bart Knijnenburg wrote in a recent Facebook post.
“All republicans? Yes,” he confirmed in the comments section. “Your complacency made this happen. Pick a side: denounce your affiliation, or admit you’re a racist.”
Some individuals questioned the broad accusation, one of whom chided Knijnenburg that “We must be careful not to generalize as this is arguably the root cause of the extreme right’s existence,” adding, “I’ve always looked up to you, as my 1st yr mentor but also for passing on the idea to study abroad. But it saddens me a bit to see this coming from you.”
“You should come live in the south for a while. It’s exhausting,” Knijnenburg replied. “The republican ideology of ‘everyone is equal and nobody deserves a handout’ is naive at best, covertly racist at worst. I truly believe that turning a blind eye makes you complicit in what is happening now.”
“This society is aggressively structured to make cis white males succeed, at the expense of minorities,” Knijnenburg continued, though he didn’t stop there. In another post, Knijnenburg equates President Donald Trump, Trump voters, the GOP, and Steve Bannon to “Nazis,” the “KKK,” and the “Alt-right,” declaring that they are “all racists.”
Additionally, Knijnenburg explicitly endorses violence in one post, stating, “I admire anyone who stands up against white supremacy. Violent or non-violent. This needs to stop, by any means necessary. #PunchNazis”
Knijnenburg’s shared photos include one of childhood cartoon Winnie the Pooh. “What day is today?” Pooh asks in the picture, sitting on a log next to Piglet. Piglet responds, “It’s the day we burn this motherf***er to the ground,” and Pooh exclaims, “My favorite day.”
“It’s not time to ‘reunite,’ ‘start a dialogue,’ or ‘find peace.’ It is time to eradicate racism by any means necessary,” Knijnenburg captioned the cartoon.
Confederate statues were also a target of Knijnenburg’s ire. One of his posts appears to advocate for the illegal removal of the statues, reading, “You bring down a confederate statue? -> I will give you a cookie!”
Knijnenburg’s advocacy didn’t stop with Confederate statues, however. In a shared photo from a page titled, “Crapitalism,” President Trump is quoted as saying, “George Washington was a slave owner… Are we gonna take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson?”
The meme concludes, “You’re g*dd**n right,” while Knijnenburg captioned the photo, “What I was thinking, too.”
