Ferris State University in Michigan has placed Professor Barry Mehler on leave, after the founder and director of the Institute for the Study of Academic Racism posted a profanity-laced video as an introduction to a course.
“I was shocked and appalled by this video,” FSU President David Eisler told local news site Capitol Confidential on Thursday. “It is profane, offensive and disturbing and in no way reflects our university or its values.”
“I work in a paid f**king union job and no limber-dick c**ksucker of an administrator is going to tell me how to teach my classes. Because I’m a f**king tenured professor,” he said. “So if you want to go to complain to your dean, f**k you, go ahead, I’m retiring at the end of this year and I couldn’t give a flying f**k any longer. You people are just vectors of disease to me and I don’t want to be anywhere near you. So keep your f**king distance.”
