Last week an adjunct professor at the University of Texas at Austin was fired last week for several inflammatory remarks he made on Twitter.
He called for Catholics to die and wanted the state of Israel to be destroyed.
Brandon Waltens of Texas Scorecard provided an update on the situation:
In a tweet, UT-Austin stated that Wells is no longer employed by the university. ‘Spencer Wells is no longer a faculty or advisory council member at UT,’ they wrote. ‘He previously had a courtesy, unpaid appointment as a part-time adjunct that did not involve teaching. That ended in May and was not renewed. We do not have any association with the views held by Mr. Wells.’
Young America’s Foundation initially reported on this case, The professor in question, Spencer Wells, was challenged by another Twitter user for his comments calling on Iran to bomb Israel. He then went on an unhinged rant.
After being questioned by a Twitter user if he was using sarcasm when encouraging Iran to bomb Israel, Spencer Wells responded: ‘Nope – I despise the Israelis. If you want to see the post-apocalyptic vision of what Apartheid in South Africa would have looked like in 2020, visit Israel. The Palestinians have suffered for far too long – bomb it until the sand turns to glass…’
In addition, Wells tweeted “F*** the Catholic Church” and an article outlining “10 Secrets the Catholic Church Hopes You’ve Forgotten,” with the hashtag #CatholicismMustDie.
Wells’ bio lists him as a geneticist, anthropologist, author, entrepreneur, adjunct professor at the University of Texas at Austin, and the owner of an iconic nightclub in Austin, Texas.
At the very least, the university was able to hold an unhinged faculty member accountable for his poisonous comments towards Catholics.
New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu Vetoes Red Flag Gun Confiscation Order
On August 7, 2020, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu vetoed a “red flag” law proposal.
This bill would have allegedly facilitated the temporary confiscation of firearms without due process for people who are perceived to be a risk to themselves or other individuals.
Sununu cited constitutional concerns for his veto. The New Hampshire Governor’s veto of the red flag bill was a microcosm of a tense session of the New Hampshire General Court.
Democrats were able to pass House Bill 687, which would have established a red flag law. Under this law, family members could file a petition to a court to disarm an individual who is viewed as a threat to themselves or others. A complete affront to due process, the gun owner would only then be allowed to fight the action in court.
Second Amendment supporters have adamantly opposed this kind of legislation. They are of the opinion that it infringes on the right to bear arms and the right to a fair trial. Sununu was in agreement, and in his veto message he stated that the bill “goes too far and would weaken the constitutional rights of law-abiding New Hampshire citizens,” while he mentioned how the second, fourth, fifth, sixth, and 14th amendments of the U.S. Constitution would be in jeopardy if this bill was passed.
“I will continue to prioritize suicide prevention and mental health as there is much work yet to be done in New Hampshire, but that work cannot come at the expense of the constitutional rights of our citizens,” Sununu wrote.
New Hampshire is one of the more pro-gun states in the country, with a ranking of 17th place according to Guns & Ammo’s Best States for Gun Owners rankings.
For once, a Republican Governor stood up against the anti-gun mob and rejected a blatantly anti-Second Amendment bill. More Republicans should follow suit by categorically rejecting the pet projects of the radical Left.
