Listen to this article
We just mentioned this story yesterday. Over the last four years we have heard countless people in higher education insult President Trump and the people who support him, and yet I can’t recall any of them being forced to resign over it.
CBS News reports:
University dean resigns after calling Biden voters “ignorant, anti-American and anti-Christian”
A dean at a university in Virginia has resigned after posting a statement on Facebook that called supporters of President-elect Joe Biden “ignorant, anti-American and anti-Christian.” CBS affiliate WTKR-TV reports that Virginia Wesleyan University announced the resignation Monday in a statement on its website.
The school in Virginia Beach said Paul Ewell resigned as Dean of Virginia Wesleyan University Global Campus. He’s also leaving his job as professor of management, business and economics.
Ewell’s post told Biden supporters to “unfriend” him and accused them of corrupting not only the election but “our youth … our country.” His statements were made on his private Facebook page. But they became public after someone circulated a screenshot, which was posted by WTKR.
The Virginian-Pilot reported on the dean’s comments last week. President Donald Trump retweeted an Associated Press version of the story and used the word “Progress!” to apparently show approval of Ewell’s sentiments.
University spokeswoman Stephanie Smaglo said last week that Ewell has apologized for the post. But she declined to comment further after Monday’s announcement.
