Members of the WSU College Republicans are considering taking legal action against two professors who made strong comments to the students, said Dan Ryder, a WSU student and College Republicans executive.

The College Republicans held the demonstration to show their support for a proposed fence or wall along portions of the U.S./Mexico border. They erected a chain-link fence on the Glenn Terrell Mall to illustrate their stance on the matter.

...

A number of yelling matches broke out between the College Republicans and the counter-protestors.

At one point, John Streamas, assistant professor of comparative ethnic studies, allegedly called Ryder “a white sh--bag.”

Ryder is considering taking action against Streamas. He’s still deciding if he’ll pursue it within WSU’s legal system or with external authorities.

Streamas admits to using the phrase, but it has to be taken in context, he said. Streamas said when he first arrived at the demonstration site, someone connected with the university said something “extremely racist” to him and left. He was angry, but didn’t direct the comment at any particular student, he said.


When trying to contact Streamas, the voicemail recieved said, “I don’t care about the hurt feelings of one white person. The feelings of one little hurt white boy who’s got all his white-skinned privilege are nothing compared to the hundreds of people he offended with his racist fence."


I'm sad to report that my alma mater is not going to fire professor Streamas for his racial comments. Who's the one being racist here?

From the AP:
A Washington State University assistant professor who used a vulgar racial term during a heated political dispute with Republican students was “immature” and “thoughtless,” but his actions did not constitute discrimination, a new report concludes.

John Streamas has also called WSU a “racist university” and contended that some say WSU should stand for “White Supremacist University,” said the report from the university’s Center for Human Rights.

IMO this is a pervasive disease in academia. I know this for a fact, especially since I deal with many people every day who have PhD's. When they say PhD stands for Piled Higher and Deeper--it is the truth! There is no honest debate when it comes to issues like these with these 'intellectuals', it immediately becomes a race issue and if you don't agree with what they say, you're a close-minded bigot. To them: border fence=racism. Ridiculous

He makes false assertions about Israel, Jews, tied to outrageous insults, questions proof of the Holocaust, defends the anti-Holocaust conference in Tehran recently, and then claims he's Jewish on his mother's side, but "self-hating" when challenged on his false facts. On one posting he claims his mother is a Polish Jew. On another he says she's a second generation Jew. It really depends on the posting as to which lie is told. This one is a charmer! He calls the Bible nonsense for added measure and Republicans "scum".
Several posters have already called him on his bigotry and put him on ignore. I choose to confront him wherever he chooses to spread his hate. His written skills are pretty good, but his intellectual ability is rather limited. He's one of the easier bigots to deconstruct. Just a little background fyi.

Please find the posts for these alleged comments. I never said any of them.

You continue to put words in my mouth I don't say.

I'm going to start writing in my responses to you "What do you expect from a guy who advocates child molestation."

It is, and I proved it to you several times. Please check the thread on US presidents. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the UN, and several other groups condem Israel for war crimes and apartheid policies in the West Bank.

Please see: http://www.city-data.com/forum/polit...tml#post222275

Problem with you Momark is everytime I source and cite for Israel's war crimes and apartheid you simply ignore it and go back to insults.

Please quote my "false assertions" about Jews and where I ever once questioned the Holocaust or defended the Holocaust conference.

Will you do this? Doubtful. You continue to put words in my mouth but refuse to quote me. What can we expect from a guy who advocates for child molestation?

I actually called both Democrats and Republicans scum.

Yet you refuse to pull up quotes of what you allege I said, and then you also refuse to counter my points and just resort on insults. Quite sad.

You haven't deconstructed anything.

And then when I posted information on Israel's apartheid and warcrimes you simply ignored them. It's quite sad that Israel can commit apartheid and warcrimes and people are too stupid to actually look outside the US media or turn off the tv.
