Faculty meeting turned violent after students blast white nationalist professor who love confederacy
Students, during a faculty meeting, confronted the White Nationalist Atlantic University professor Marshall DeRosa, for defending the confederacy. Earlier it was reported that the Professor was funded by the Koch brothers.
According to the Miami New Times report, during the Monday faculty meeting students questioned the writings of DeRosa, that include controversial statements like slavery was a product of “black supremacy”
The Miami New Times noted, “I knew this would turn into an inquisition,” the professor said as a student read aloud from an August 2017 article where he argued that “Confederate case law” proves that slavery was in fact spurred on by “black supremacy” in a clip published by the Abbeville Institute, a group “named after the birthplace of South Carolina slavery-defender John C. Calhoun,”
DeRosa wrote in the clip read aloud by the student activist. “The tar-baby in any defense of the Confederacy is slavery, which has segued into ‘white supremacy,’”
“That issue will be addressed in subsequent Confederate case law. But for now, suffice it to say that linking the two, slavery with white supremacy, is a gross over-simplification. First, black supremacy is the origin of Southern slavery.” crowd erupted as the student read the clip that used the slur “tar-baby” in an effort to take the onus of chattel slavery off of white American and European slavers — but DeRosa rebutted by asking if his assertion was “not true.”
Professor claimed he doesnt care what students think of him, Professor said the exposure of his controversial writings puts his family at risk. Then a student from the black lives matter addressed the professor.
The student said “I want the faculty here to know that we employ someone with ties to white supremacist groups,”
“And if we do this, how can we say we are ethically, racially, politically diverse? I’m not attacking you, I’m attacking the people you are involved with, and if you are involved with these people, you need to stop that.”
DeRosa replied, students are “peddlers of these untruths” and “smears” then he accused the fellow faculty members of “weaponizing” students and encouraging them to attack him. He said “They’re going to be rooted out, Yeah. They’re going to be rooted out.”
