“A New Jersey community college is investigating why a professor shouted the F-word at a student in an incident that was caught on camera. The student identifies as politically conservative, and the incident has sparked complaints about the college as a liberal atmosphere where alternative political viewpoints are not tolerated,” per local outlet NJ.com.
A brief video clip of the incident can be viewed here: http://www.nj.com/education/2018/04/a_nj_prof_dropped_the_f-bomb_on_his_conservative_s.html
The altercation took place in class and was recorded on another classmate’s phone: “During a Sociology 105, Intercultural Communication class Wednesday, Brookdale Community College professor Howard Finkelstein grew angry with his student, Christopher Lyle, shouted f— your life,’ and pounded his hand on a table.”
Apparently the left-leaning professor’s comment came after Lyle suggested that both women and men are victims of sexual harassment. According to the student and classmate, it is one of the latest in a long line of disparaging comments directed towards Lyle’s conservative opinions, including those pertaining to lawful gun ownership.
Brookdale Community College is conducting an investigation into the matter, but at this time cannot offer any official comment.
