    Former call latter racist, naturally.

    Check out the prof who demands that the Republican stop filiming. So much for liberal free speech, eh?

    Dan Ryder, a College Republicans executive, plans to file a complaint against John Streamas for allegedly calling Ryder a “white s--tbag.”

    Streamas, assistant professor of comparative ethnic studies, admits to using the phrase, but said he wasn’t directing it at any one student.

    Free speech is only protected by liberals when liberals speak.

    That smirk by the prof asking for the students ID should have gotten him a bloody nose. If he had asked for mine and told me to stop filming I would have told him to show me where in the student handbook where he has the right to tell me to do that.

    He is a Ethics Studies Professor. His classes are simple : white conservatives are racist trash

    He's the one in the wrong. Bullying a student whose beliefs you disagree with using your professor status is WRONG. But nothing will happen to this a-hole. After all, he's going after a white Republican. He'll be given a civil rights award by the dean!

    Would have liked to have heard the entire conversation. The professor was definitely using the ID card thing as a power play. But, it wasn't clear to me whether or not the kids' free speech was being stifled.

    Come on folks, the only problem with this situation is the racist remark made by the professor.

    No. HE was clearly using his status as a professor to intimidate when he realized he was an idiotic loser.

    A person has a right to privacy, believe it or not! He didn't want to be on camera and he knew that the student didn't have a permit to film.

    If ya don't like the rules then don't play the game.

    But this was only his concern after he realized he looked like a fool.

    And he did use his status to intimidate.
