For people who advertise themselves to be champions of tolerance and understanding, leftists, especially leftist “educators” sure are a violent breed. Insert James Pearce, a man whose Facebook profile states that he is a professor at the Southern State Community College (SSCC) in Ohio is under investigation for threatening to shoot up the NRA. In a Facebook post on June 13, Pearce writes:
“Look, there’s only one solution. A bunch of us anti-gun types are going to have to arm ourselves, storm the NRA headquarters in Fairfax, VA, and make sure there are no survivors, This action might also require coordinated hits at remote sites, like Washington lobbyists. Then and only then will we see some legislative action on assault weapons.”
The Highland County Press reported that Pearce’s comments were sent to authorities and SSCC on June 15. Kris Cross (Yes…that’s her real name), Director of Public Relations for SSCC, is quoted as saying
“It is the college’s policy not to comment on individual personnel matters,”
But, according to Campus Reform, she did offer some general observations of potential relevance to the case.
“In general, the College would alert local authorities about any threats that were made known to the College, especially any threats made to students, faculty or staff. We have a good working relationship with the police jurisdictions covering each of our four campuses, and trust they would follow their protocols for reporting to other agencies. As I understand it, a report does not necessarily mean an investigation.”
When asked if Pearce would continue to teach during the investigation, Cross stated, “Certainly any criminal prosecution and findings could be a consideration for employment decisions in any matter of criminal conduct.”
Pearce, a self-professed highly educated & enlightened soul, has a greeting on his Facebook page that reads “HATE FREE ZONE” and often shares other messages that also conflict with his threats of a murderous rampage, such as:
And further observation of his public postings on Facebook reveals a sense of humor that you’d never expect to see from a man whose career is shaping young minds.
Pearce joins a long list of activist educators who have violated the trust of parents, and the public. Such as this story, which you may remember we broke on our Facebook page that gained national attention where a young man was given a workbook at school that contained a compilation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. When the workbook covered the Second Amendment, it stated that only ‘certain guns’ could be owned and that they had to be ‘registered,’
One really can’t help but question who’s pulling the strings over at our local teachers unions. If this is the type of intentional propaganda and outright hate speech that is in the hearts and minds of those we trust our kids with, then perhaps we’re trusting our kids with the wrong people.
As for Mr. Pearce: On June 17, SSCC Security and Emergency Response coordinator Gary Heaton noted that the information had been reported to the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The Attorney General advised [SSCC Vice President] Dr. Roades to take no action until the Feds had completed an investigation. As of today, Pearce’s name does not appear on the College’s list of Faculty/Staff.
