Professor Who Trashed Trump Now ANGRY That Her Remarks Were Televised
A Princeton professor whose outrageous anti-Trump commencement speech earned her some coverage on Fox News is now mad at the network for publicizing her remarks. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, an African-American Studies professor, had plenty of choice words about the President of the United States in her graduation speech at Hampshire College, but she apparently didn’t want those words to travel outside the halls of the ceremony.
Interesting how, in this case and the videos chronicling the disruptive behavior of the Evergreen State College protesters, these liberals take such exception to being exposed for what they are: Embarrassments to their so-called cause.
Taylor claims to have gotten death threats and other harassing messages following her TV coverage, and she is angry at Fox News for having the audacity to discuss her…public comments. “I am not a newsworthy person,” she said. Now she’s canceled upcoming lectures in Seattle and San Diego, insisting she had to do so out of “fear for my safety and my family’s safety.”
At the commencement speech, Taylor was not so shy. She told the graduates that they were heading out into an “increasingly dangerous” world, the “most extreme illustration” of which came in the form of President Trump.
“The president of the United States, the most powerful politician in the world, is a racist, sexist megalomaniac,” she said. “It is not a benign observation but has meant tragic consequences for many people in our country – from the terror-inducing raids in the communities of undocumented immigrants to his disparaging of refugees in search of freedom and respite.
“He has empowered an attorney general who embraces and promulgates policies that have already been proven to have had a devastating impact on Black families and communities,” she continued. “He thinks that climate science is ‘fake’ and his eagerness to take the country into war can only be interpreted as a callous disregard for its steep price in both money and human life. This list could continue but suffice to say that Donald Trump has fulfilled the promises of a campaign organized and built upon racism, corporatism and militarism.”
We obviously don’t condone any of the morons who sent this woman death threats, but maybe she’ll now understand that there’s no such thing as a “safe space” in the United States of America. You want to go on stage and trash the president, don’t be surprised when your deranged rant winds up on the news.
