Let Trinity College F***ing Die?

Posted on | December 21, 2017 | Comments Off on Let Trinity College F***ing Die?

Trinity College is the second-oldest institution of higher education in Connecticut. (Yale University is the oldest.) Ranked in the top 50 private liberal arts colleges in the country, Trinity is an elite school, where the annual cost of attendance (tuition, fees, room and board) is $68,970. Founded by Episcopalians, Trinity’s motto is Pro Ecclesia Et Patria — “For Church and Country.” Despite its religious origins and conservative heritage, however, Trinity evidently has been taken over by left-wing atheist anti-America “social justice warriors” (SJWs). How else to explain why Trinity would employ Professor Johnny Eric Williams?

“It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be ‘white’ will not do, put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and their white supremacy system. #LetThemFuckingDie,” Williams wrote in a June 18 Facebook post.
Two days earlier on the same page, he had shared an article titled “Let Them F***ing Die” in which the anonymous author suggests that “bigots,” such as the victims of the congressional baseball practice shooting, should be left for dead.
A few minutes after the first post, Williams elaborated that he is “fed the f**k up with self-identified ‘white’s’ daily violence directed at immigrants, Muslims, and sexual and racially oppressed people,” saying, “the time is now to confront these inhuman a**holes and end this now.”
As Campus Reform previously reported, Williams’ statements cost the college 16 students, “roughly $200,000” in donations, and led lawmakers to call for his firing. Trinity has decided not to fire Williams, however, arguing that his statements are protected by academic freedom. . . .
Williams later turned his attention to popular Fox News Channel host and former Trinity student Tucker Carlson, whom Williams mocked as an “idiot” and “moron.”
“That damn Tucker Carlson, man. Why did we give him a damn degree?” Williams asked. “He had the nerve to ask me to come on his damn show. I was like, ‘Are you out of your mind?’”

A Trinity alumnus, John Leisenring (Class of ’81) sent a letter to the college president, Joanne Berger-Sweeney, expressing his concern that “political tolerance and intellectual respect are no longer values that Trinity College accepts or instills in its professors.” However, Leisenring seems to understate the problem — Trinity has quite obviously abandoned any pretense to providing an education to its students. Rather, Trinity is now in the business of SJW indoctrination.

The question is why anyone would allow their children to attend such an institution, which has been captured by the radical Left and subverted to purposes contrary to the interests of its alumni. Trinity has become a place where the faculty teach students to hate their parents, and yet parents are supposed to pay the bills for this “education”?

#LetThemF***ingDie, indeed!
