Liberals Upset After Legal Immigrant Professor Discusses Woes of Illegal Immigration
A legal Chinese immigrant and professor at Georgia Gwinnett College is facing scrutiny after speaking his mind about illegal immigration on Facebook.
Fang Zhou is an associate history professor at the college, and some leftists are calling for the school to take action after he made honest remarks about the economic downsides of illegal aliens. They are also upset because he used “mean” words like “libtards” and “ghetto thugs.”
“I am against political correctness. I speak truth to power in class and my students learn about the financial drain of illegal immigration on the economy and the high crime rates of illegal immigrants. My students are ‘woke’ and are overwhelmingly against illegal immigration after taking my class,” he said in one post, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
At least one state lawmaker has expressed her displeasure.
“While we celebrate the passage of the Dream Act, this [Georgia Gwinnett College] professor uses hostile terms ‘ghetto thugs,’ ‘libtards,’ & spreads false narratives about immigrants. Are these the values supported by Georgia Gwinnett College?” Bee Nyuen, a member of the Georgia House of Representatives said on Twitter.

The “values” that Bee refers too are those that might question the leftist narrative. As has been the theme of this week, a person in a position of power would prefer to silence, rather than debate the ideas of an ideological opponent.
The professor is refusing to back down. His “values” include the fundamental American right to free expression.
“Everybody has free speech, so (Nguyen’s) welcome to complain,” Zhou reportedly told the AJC.
