Education Watchdog Group Calls for Firing of Professor Caught on Video in Anti-Republican Tirade

"If Professor William Penn went on a similar rant bashing the LGBT community you would have fired him immediately"

An education watchdog group on Sunday called for the firing of an embattled Michigan State University (MSU) professor who was caught in a secret recording earlier this month ranting against Republicans.

"Michigan State must fire prof who went on hateful rant," said Campus Reform's Caleb Bonham in a newly released video.

"If Professor William Penn went on a similar rant bashing the LGBT community you would have fired him immediately," Bonham added in the video.

MSU Creative Writing Professor William Penn said earlier this month Republicans are "a bunch of dead white people" who had "raped" the country and want to prevent black people from voting.

As a result, the school "reassigned" his teaching duties, but reportedly continues to pay him his $146,510 annual salary.
