FRESNO, Calif. -- A Fresno State lecturer who says he was demoted after posting a tweet that Donald Trump "must hang" says the university president is again failing to defend academic freedom -- this time over a professor who called former first lady Barbara Bush an "amazing racist." In an opinion piece posted Thursday by The Fresno Bee, Lars Maischak says university President Joseph Castro is siding with attackers of English professor Randa Jarrar instead of standing up to the "fascist threat to academic freedom."

What they are failing to defend is stupidity.
I dont see how the comments werent all related to academics. They were in extremely poor taste and reflect poorly upon the school. Is the professor acting as the universitys official spokesman?
Hey Lars! To save America you and your ilk must hang.
Wow, this is like a lefty Westboro Baptist Church or something.
were at all, that is.
The truly insane have no idea how nuts they are - and we pay them to educate our kids......
I see a Secret Service visit in your future, Lars ...
Just more Commie-fa blather.
I give up. What does threatening the President with murder have to do with academic freedom?
Yet another case of arrested development living off the taxpayers thinking he can throw tantrums.
These commie-fascist totalitarian socialist professors are lying sacks of bull droppings. Their definition of freedom is the opposite of freedom and liberty. A lot of these colleges don’t teach anything worthwhile, so it would not be sad if many of them went bankrupt and shut down.
I see that and someone giving him a major ads kicking too. He will run into the wrong person one day.
Great! Bring all the nut-jobs into the open. Don’t do the tweet if you can’t stand the heat.
Where’s the academic part?
These dweebs are the fascists of the 21st Century!
Interesting way to describe a person. Must mean the ugly-a$$ bag who expressed her hate for Barbara Bush and wasn’t fired, and who will find fame and fortune waiting for her because of her hate for good people.
I’m embarrassed that I attended that silly school for 1 semester and that many of my forebears graduated from there.
I wonder how much”academic freedom” Maischak gives to his conservative students who disagree with his leftist rantings in class.
Which goes to show how much the country (in general) is devolving.
Fresno / the central valley of CA, used to be pretty conservative...even just 10 years ago. It still is overall, but is slipping due to mass immigration (illegal & legal).
In the same light, Fresno State used to be fairly conservative...as universities go anyway.
Seems like conservatism is getting squeezed to fewer and fewer pockets around the country.
