Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa has announced that they are accepting the resignation of antifa professor Jeff Klinzman , who chose to resign before he was fired.
Klinzman advocated for various antifa groups on his social media pages and posted a poem about killing Christians and burying them deep.
The college will be adding security and taking other measures.
Although they didn’t give a coherent reason why, it’s safe to assume that they are worried about violence from the domestic terrorist group, antifa. Klinzman decided last week that announcing his support for antifa was a good idea. Well, there’s always Berkeley.
Adjunct professor Jeff Klinzman will no longer be employed at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, after openly admitting to being a part of Antifa.
What are the details?
According to a Campus Reform report, Klinzman announced last week that he supported the movement, which drew immediate backlash.
Kirkwood Community College President Lori Sundberg released a Friday statement that revealed the institution had accepted Klinzman’s resignation, which came after the college removed him from the classroom.
“We have spoken with Mr. Klinzman this afternoon about this matter and have accepted his resignation,” a portion of Sundberg’s statement read.
“With the safety of our students, faculty, and staff as our top concern, we made the decision this morning to identify an instructor who will take over the one course that Mr. Klinzman was to have taught this semester,” the statement added.
It also acknowledged that while the decision “may be supported by some,” but “criticized by others,” it was necessary to prevent fostering a disruptive environment in the classroom. The statement also noted that while the institution supports the professor’s “right to articulate his views in whatever forum he chooses,” it was not acceptable for people to perceive that he might place “public safety in jeopardy.”
