Violence is apparently the answer

UC-Merced bannerInstead of a reprimand, students and faculty at a California college think a professor should receive a promotion for saying he'd like to rip off a conservative commentator's shoulder.

OneNewsNow recently reported that University of California-Merced lecturer Fernando Chirino challenged conservative author Ben Shapiro to an MMA match rather than debate. Shapiro is scheduled to speak on campus next month.

Emory McClendon, community activist for the National Center for Public Policy Research's Project 21, calls Chirino's challenge childish.

"It made me chuckle," he admits. "But I was also very, very concerned, because it's not only juvenile; it's really crazy. And it shows the lack of responsibility of this professor."

But Chirino's students and fellow faculty members think he should be promoted for his behavior. McClendon sees that as proof that students are getting the wrong message.

"We're seeing more and more violence being taught and being brought up by these subversive groups, so people are beginning to think that violence is a normal way to act," he observes. 

According to Campus Reform, protestors for Chirino are circulating a petition that demands the school promote him and give students a say in the faculty the staff hires or fires.
