Kent State University now has another problem on its hands. A member of the Ku Klux Klan who just recently was found operating a hate website (www.KillTheNegroes.com) has now been identified as a history professor at Kent State. The site has been closed but the controversy still looms because of some comments the professor has posted on blogs under the name “Lover of Anglos” while using his Kent State email address.

Some examples of the vile postings follow:

How many times have I told you people---you write the blogs, I'll brainwash your children!

You f***ing people. You don't know the first thing about flying a plane into a black church! The fact is, you want me aboard that plane, you need me on that plane! Otherwise, I suggest you start taking flying lessons aboard a Cessna. Sweet dreams, b***hes!

If a mother***ker like you can't tell the difference between a Radical Klansman and democrats, you're an even stupider c**t than I suspected.

It's cojones, stupid mother***ker. The kind you lack, since when someone disagrees with you, he runs crying to his mommy, AKA the US government:"PLEASE, PROTECT ME FROM THIS COLLEGE PROFESSOR WHOSE VIEWS I DON'T LIKE!!

Nope, your c***sucking mother will be first in line at Selma, punk mother***ker.

The minute you take your d**k out of mama's mouth, I'll gladly resign from my blog.

These posts, which can all be linked to Kent State History Professor Julius Piner are very troubling. But what is more troubling is that Kent State seems to be defending him. One humanities professor said the following:

“If the constitution protects anything it protects the right to express offensive views. I don’t see what all the fuss is about.”

One of Piner’s colleagues in the History Department said the following:

“I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. To my knowledge, he hasn’t actually killed any Negroes.”

And, finally, here is what a Kent State spokesperson had to say about Piner:

“Julius Piner was not actually linked to the site, ‘Kill the Negroes,’ nor did he use any university resources when he was not operating it. Furthermore, there is no evidence that he ever advocated killing Negroes in his class lectures. We all have to remember that academic freedom is an important part of university life, even when we disagree with the views being expressed.”

Of course, many disagree with Kent State’s defense of Piner. Some of the most compelling reasons follow:

1. The “Kill the Negroes” site contained essays calling for the cleansing and purification of society via the mass murder of blacks.

2. Piner distributed videos on the website showing the actual lynching of blacks.

3. Piner circulated instructions on how to bomb black churches in the South.

4. Piner circulated a “battle dispatch” to give people specific information on America’s most “notorious” black churches.

If you are as disgusted as I am, I know you will take the time to contact Ron Kirksey. Ron is the University Spokesman for Kent State. He can be reached via phone at 330-672-8535 or via e-mail atrkirksey@kent.edu.

Thanks in advance for those who take the time to help. Together we can make a difference when universities protect hateful professors in the name of free speech.
