According to the Virginian-Pilot, Paul Ewell, the dean of Virginia Wesleyan University’s global campus, encouraged Biden voters to unfriend him in a partially private Facebook post. Then someone screen-shotted the post and shared it.
Ewell, a dean at Virginian Wesleyan University in Virginia Beach, is causing controversy on the campus. Ewell said anyone who voted for Biden is “ignorant, anti-American and anti-Christian” and accused them of corrupting not only the election but “our youth … our country.”
Of course, some students reacted negatively to the post. One student said that faculty members should be held to a higher standard because teachers “are entrusted with shaping the minds of today’s youth.” Apparently, some former and current students defended Ewell.
Just imagine if this happened in one of our major cities; the college would probably have burnt to the ground. Biden would then call it a peace full protest.
The student’s comment about “higher standards” and “shaping the minds” is disingenuous. The first amendment protection embraces the professor’s right to post his opinion. Higher standards and shaping minds, from a constitutional perspective, are irrelevant in this setting. Moreover, the student should be more concerned about how teachers have been using toxic practices in their classes to “teach” students to hate President Trump. Partial source: pilotonline.com
