A professor at Essex County College was indefinitely suspended two days after her heated appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight," reports The Daily Beast.
Lisa Durden was told that she had to cancel her classes and report to Essex County College’s human resources department two days after a June 6 appearance on the prime time Fox News show. School officials then indefinitely suspended her, according to The Beast.
What is this bizarre policing of differing views?
Durden is a professor, shouldn't we look to different views from all sides from professors?
Of course, an organization, such as the college, should be able to hire, fire or suspend anyone they want but it strikes me as far from creating a collegiate atmosphere of learning and debate when professors are fired because of specific comments and views.
And as far as her appearance, I don't think she said anything out of order. She was on the correct side of the debate not Carlson. If black people want to have black only gatherings, why not?
This is what got her indefinitely suspended:
I think Carlson should have her on to discuss whether it was proper for the college to suspend her.
