    Rutgers University Prof Blames Trump Supporters for Coronavirus Deaths

    Rutgers University Prof Blames Trump Supporters for Coronavirus Deaths

    “F**k each and every Trump supporter. You all absolutely did this. You are to blame.”

    A Rutgers University professor named Brittney Cooper has come under fire for blaming Trump supporters for Coronavirus deaths. She has not folded under criticism either, citing the fact that she is tenured.

    Rebecca Everett reports at NJ.com:

    Rutgers prof stands by her tweets saying ‘f— Trump supporters’ blaming them for coronavirus deaths

    A Rutgers University professor said she is facing harassment but stands by her tweets saying “f— Trump supporters” and blaming them for the coronavirus deaths that disproportionately affect Black communities.

    “So I said what I meant. And I curse cuz I’m grown,” Dr. Brittney Cooper, associate professor in the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, tweeted Thursday after the Washington Examiner published a story on her earlier tweets. “I disdain every person who thought and thinks he’s a good leader, because that thinking has had material consequences for far too many of us.”

    Cooper declined an interview request Thursday morning. The university said in a brief statement that “Dr. Cooper’s Twitter statements are her own personal statements and not those of the University.”

    I decided to screen cap these tweets on the off-chance they get deleted:

    In a separate thread, she doubled down and explained that because she has tenure she will not be fired for this.

    Dom Calicchio of FOX News has more on Cooper’s background:

    Cooper has a history of criticizing President Trump. Last October she asserted the president’s policies were partly to blame for weight problems among African-American women. Last August, she claimed Trump was willing to “get us into war” to keep the economy strong to bolster his 2020 reelection hopes.

    She is the author of “Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower,” which The Guardian ranked among its “Top 10 Books About Angry Women,” according to Amazon.

    I’d love to see this bovine ignoramus in a foot race to a buffet vs. Stacey Abrams.

    Life in the fat lane…

    This is typical academic TDS that is raging since Trump got elected. A professor acquaintance/friend I have on Facebook accuses Trump of killing people on a weekly basis. Or that we want people to die if we go back to work. There is no reasoning with people like this.

    Cannot tenure be revoked for bringing disgrace upon the university? This is certainly disgraceful action.

      Not by the standard of what is usually protected by tenure. In addition, this is a state university so the first amendment applies. Remember Leonard Jeffries?

    “Necropolitical calculation” is a new one on me. I’m gonna use that.

    I would like to hear what that could have been done (within physics, political reality, n available information at the time) should have been done.

    I’m mostly coming down with responsiveness, information, and orchestration within existing bureaucracies. If it’s big enough for a travel ban, let alone a lockdown or more, it’s big enough to jump every damn possible factoid n mitigation in front of all the routine stuff.
