James Mashburn, a professor at Tarrant County College, scared students when he showed up to astronomy class with his face covered, demanded the lights stay off, and started ranting about Islam, reported The Collegian.
Tarrant County College suspended the professor and is launching an investigation. But what point is this guy trying to make, wearing two caps, a hood, and what seems to be underwear on his face and reading Qur’an verses to a solar system class?
He’s tired of hiding in the shadows, so he turns the lights off in class and decks himself out like an assassin? I mean, that’s not even any kind of traditional Muslim garb. All but two of Mashburn’s students left class before it ended.
Police didn’t find any weapons on the professor, so maybe he was just messing around. As for the layers of clothing, Mashburn said that he follows the Qur’an and washes his skin several times a day. His skin has become dry, so he covers it for protection. Well, that could be true and we wouldn’t want his hands to crack, although that might not be the only type of crack the professor has.
Top 5 UNHINGED Profs Of 2018
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Jolly Kwanzaa? Wait a sec, isn’t that the fake one? Anyway, it’s been a crazy year here at Campus Unmasked, where I’ve brought you more than 200 stories on stuff ranging from the vandalism of a Thomas Jefferson statue on his birthday and on the campus he founded to pro-Palestinian students being a massive nuisance with disruptions and from a Dartmouth professor writing an Antifa comic book intro to bike lock professor Eric Clanton getting off with zero felony convictions. But it’s the end of the year and it’s time to hone in on the top five most insane professors of 2018. Strap yourselves in for a wild ride.
Georgia Southern University professor Jared Yates Sexton tweeted this gem of leftist doublethink in September: “Kavanaugh says he was a virgin in high school, and I’m sure, in his mind, this is saying he was naive or that he wasn’t sexual in nature, but subconsciously, this is the toxic masculinity at play. He’s saying, back then, he couldn’t have assaulted her. He wasn’t man enough.”
It’s Catch-22 all over again, folks. If Kavanaugh had committed sexual assault, he would be branded a rapist and have no chance of getting the Supreme Court confirmation. But if he didn’t, he’s exhibiting toxic masculinity, which is ALSO license to go after his livelihood, don’t you know.
Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania philosophy professor Wendy Lynne Lee called Jordan Peterson, who has a wife and kids, an “incel.” She tweeted “Jordan Peterson: incel misogynist. Committed white nationalist.” Now, after Wendy made that tweet I reached out to Peterson for his take and he said Wendy “clearly believes (1) that her ill-advised statements are warranted, which they are not, and (2) that such actions, however ill-advised, are acceptable, ethically and factually….I would counsel those who wish to bring forward such groundless accusations to be duly cautious. Such shots in the dark have a nasty habit of backfiring.”
And indeed, Very shortly after that, Peterson threatened to sue Wendy. The professor deleted her tweet calling him an incel and issued what I’m sure was a very sincere apology.
A lot of crazy stuff comes out of Rutgers University in New Jersey, but I stumbled upon a veritable gold mine in June when I reported on Professor James Livingston, who took to Facebook saying “OK, officially, I now hate white people. I am a white people” — shocker, James doesn’t teach English — “for God’s sake, but can we keep them — us — us out of my neighborhood?” The professor apparently didn’t have a good experience at his favorite restaurant and said “the place is overrun with little Caucasian assholes who know their parents will approve of anything they do. Slide around the floor, you little shithead, sing loudly, you moron. Do what you want, nobody here is gonna restrict your right to be white.”
The professor proceeded to say that he resigned from his race. Well I accept your resignation, James. But WAIT. The story gets even stranger. Rutgers first found the professor guilty of violating its discrimination and harassment policy, suggesting that his students could fear unfair treatment based on their race, but a few months later, the school reversed its ruling and James got off scot-free.
Tarrant County College professor James Mashburn apparently came into astronomy class with his face covered, refused to turn the lights on, and began talking about Islam. One student reported being concerned when she saw Mashburn moving his hand in his pocket. Police apparently didn’t find any weapons on the professor, but the school DID suspend him.
Number One. We started with a Kavanaugh story, so it only makes sense to end with one. Georgetown University professor Christine Fair responded to a video in which Senator Lindsey Graham defended Kavanaugh, saying “Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”
Well, Georgetown didn’t punish Professor Fair for that remark, but Twitter did, briefly suspending her and taking away her little blue check mark. So what do you guys think? Did I get the rankings right? Were there any I missed? Let me know in the video comments and join me for more campus craziness in 2019.
