An Iowa professor who openly admitted to being a member of the domestic terror outfit Antifa has now resigned from his teaching position.
Kirkwood Community College President Lori Sundberg confirmed last Friday that she accepted the resignation of professor Jeff Klinzman after he was removed from the classroom over the professor’s insistence that he had joined the terror group, according to Campus Reform.
“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,” Sundberg said in a statement. “We have spoken with Mr. Klinzman this afternoon about this matter and have accepted his resignation.”
The college president added that opinions were mixed on the professor, but his presence at the college already created “the potential to create an environment that is disruptive to our mission.”
Sundberg affirmed that the fired prof has a “right to articulate his views in whatever forum he chooses,” and added that the resignation occurred because community members perceived Klinzman to place “public safety in jeopardy.”
The chain of events suggests that the school did not give the terrorist professor much choice in the matter.
The whole situation erupted after professor Klinzman’s participation in the terror group turned up in a report on KCRG-TV on August 22. After the report about his involvement, Klinzman admitted openly, “I affirm that I am Antifa.”
Indeed, the terror prof’s social media included “likes” for pages such as Antifa Nebraska, Heartland Antifascists, Antifascist USA, Iowa Antifa, and other extremist groups like Iowa City Democratic Socialists of America, and U.S. Democratic Socialists.
One of his social media posts featured death threats to Christians and contained phrases such as, “Kill them all, and bury them deep into the ground, before millions more are tortured to death.”
The hate-filled extremist had also made social media posts admitting he would take a bat and try to kill people who disagree with his political positions.
Klinzman has since scrubbed most of his social media accounts.
No wonder the school wanted this lunatic gone. Imagine sending your kids to be taught by this creep?
