Liberal Professor Fired After Giving Iran A Horrible Suggestion On Social Media

A professor at Babson College was terminated from his job on Thursday after he gave the Iranian regime a horrific suggestion.

The Massachusetts college released a statement that Director of Sustainability Asheen Phansey was terminated over sharing a post that said Iran should post a list of 52 American sites to attack.

According to USA Today, Phansey joked on Facebook that, “In retaliation, Ayatollah Khomenei should tweet a list of 52 sites of beloved American cultural heritage that he would bomb,” Phansey wrote in the since-deleted post. “Um… Mall of America? Kardashian residence?”

The Hill reported:

In a Thursday statement, the school confirmed that Phansey was no longer an employee, sharing “Babson College conducted a prompt and thorough investigation related to a post shared on a staff member’s personal Facebook page that does not represent the values and culture of the College. Based on the results of the investigation, the staff member is no longer a Babson College employee. As we have previously stated, Babson College condemns any type of threatening words and/or actions condoning violence and/or hate.”

Not that I’m surprised but Phansey criticized the school and claimed it was just a joke. Phansey said that he was “disappointed and saddened that Babson decided to abruptly terminate our relationship with the college just because people willfully misinterpreted a joke I made to my friends on Facebook.”

“I would have hoped that Babson, an institution of higher education that I love and to which I have given a great deal, would have defended and supported my right to free speech. Beyond my own situation, I am really concerned about what this portends for our ability as Americans to engage in political discourse without presuming the worst about each other,” he concluded.

I’m not so sure what Phansey thought was funny about his post because it wasn’t funny at all.
