Michigan State Prof: Republicans are Old White People Who Raped America and Don’t Want to Pay for Your Tuition


You can tell Professor William S. Penn is a creative writing teacher because he has that creepy half-mustache most often seen on 1920s Nazis,  convicted sex offenders and creative writing teachers still waiting to make it with their Great American Novel about gay life in 19th century New Orleans.

And he’s justifiably upset that all the old Republicans don’t care about his students, the way that he and his half-mustache does, and don’t want to pay for their tuition.

“This country still is full of closet racists,” he said. “What do you think is going on in South Carolina and North Carolina. Voter suppression. Its about getting black people not to vote. Why? Because black people tend to vote Democratic.”

“Why would would Republicans want to do it?” he asked. “Because Republicans are not a majority in this country anymore. They are a bunch of dead white people. Or dying white people.”

No doubt it’s creative writing skills like that which made it necessary for Penn to dedicate his enormous reservoir of writing talent to spell checking the writing of incoming freshmen.

No wonder he hates Republicans.

What is Penn’s literary specialty you may ask? We may refer to it as Churchillian, not in the Winston sense, but the Ward sense. Here is his bio.

William S. Penn (born 1949) is a mixed-race Nez Perce author and English professor at Michigan State. His work explores the issues his father faced coming to terms with his Indian heritage. His work may be classified as magical realism. He has also written a nonfiction work, All My Sins are Relatives about his mixed-blood family life.

White guy claiming he’s an Indian. Check

Entire career apparently built on ‘Indianness’. Check.

Rants about evil white Republicans. Check.

Ladies and gentlefolk, I give you Ward Churchill’s Mini-Me.

Also Penn calls himself an “Urban Mixblood”. So points for that. And if that video wasn’t enough, here is an excerpt from Penn’s meditations on the Mixbloodedness of being a guy with a half-mustache.

Connections of meaning: forced to join rotc by financial circumstances and encouraged to join by his continued desire to belong to America, he starts to question why anyone would want to protect or defend the connections of class and what gets sold in the Malls of American Thinking. Why would anyone die to kill Vietnamese instead of his privileged roommate, who has to plagiarize obscure library books to pass freshman English?

I have seen the best minds of my generation embrace cheap identity politics, because eventually it gets you a creative writing gig at Michigan State.

Because the mean Republicans hoard all the money.

    Well, he’s right about me not wanting to pay for their tuition.

    My mom and dad paid my tuition for my BA. In grad school, I worked at a low-paying, low-skilled job, and scrimped and saved to pay for that. I should have worked for the undergrad degree too.

    Let them do that.

    But that’s just me.

    By the way, I’ll stack my alleged racism up against Prof. Penn’s any day of the week.

    “His work may be classified as magical realism?” Somebody please define “magical realism” for me, will you? Can anyone give me an example of a magical realist work?

    This is one Penn that isn’t mightier than the sword….or a butter knife, for that matter.

  • CowboyUp

    “Magical realism,” hmmmm. Is that a term he came up with on his own? And “connections of meaning?” How profound (and creative!). Not really, it’s just mush.
    It’s pretty obvious Penn is a mental case. He has a “continuous desire to belong.” to a greedy racist rapist he doesn’t think is worth defending. He thinks extra-judicial capital punishment of Freshman plagiarism makes more sense than an American killing or dying for America in a war. He seems to think he’s had it rough, and resents those who have it easier, yet has had enough free time on his hands to navel gaze himself into some sort of neurosis.

      The general public still don’t have a clue about Public Schools and Universities. It has been like this for decades.
      Even when I was in high school in early 60s I challenged the Democrat teachers who were pushing their propaganda.
      As a researcher even as a kid and a life long Republican, I was going to make sure the other kids sitting in the class were going to hear the other side.

    • truebearing

      “Magical realism”
      Isn’t that a beauty? Is it an oxymoron….or perhaps just the maundering of an oxygen deprived moron?

    • ziggy zoggy

      He rode his fake Indian identity through a scholarship and into tenure. What a fraud! Meanwhile, his White roommate had to listen to the same type of racist, Marxist rants from his professors AND his roommate! Tell me who was more oppressed?

  • Erudite Mavin

    Typical of the Radical Left especially teachers and Profs. bashing and lying about Republicans.
    Most teachers and Profs have never had a real job in their life.
    Their life has been left wing teachers and left wing text books from elementary
    school through college and continuing the cycle, sucking in more new Democrat
    voters themselves.

  • MaxedOut

    Becoming a Professor of English is what you do when you want to get paid to whine about how badly you’ve been treated by Capitalistic system that expects productive work.

  • ziggy zoggy

    Too funny! Penn (any relation to Sean?) is an old White man raping America who doesn’t pay his students’ tuition. Being a leftist means never having to say you’re a hypocrite. Ranting about “racist” White Republicans in a creative writing class? Bragging about his phoney red skin and whining about his whiteness in his mini-bio? This twat should teach a conformitive writing course, because that’s what he’s really doing anyway.

    Oh Geez. Another deranged lunatic leaching off society.

  • Naresh Krishnamoorti

    This ignorant nutbag points to South Carolina. Obviously, he doesn’t know that South Carolina has a female Indian Republican governor, and the only Black Senator in the U.S. Senate — another Republican.

  • Biff Henderson

    When I had profs that would pitch a bitch outside the course material I’d call them out and tell them to shut their pie hole. Don’t pull that social engineering crap on my dime.

  • Gamal

    Why doesn’t he take a lower salary and distribute the difference to his students if he cares so much about them?

  • Michael Garfinkel

    I find it startling that someone this stupid can be a college professor. I must be more naive than I thought.

  • Michael Garfinkel

    Incidentally, what the hell is “magical realism?”

  • mtnhikerdude

    Another clueless clown.

  • susan

    why was this idiot hired???? he is a hater. Who wants a teacher who is a hater???
