Liberals sure do love to force their views on others. I've had my share of liberal professors but this is the first time I've heard of a professor who not only ordered his students to write an essay bashing Sarah Palin as an assignment, but then cursed out the Republicans in the class and instructed other students to ridicule them. "Metro State College is investigating a professor who asked students to write an essay critical of Republican vice presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin. One student said the instructor singled out Republican students in the class and allowed others to ridicule them." "Hallam asked students to write an essay to contradict what he called the 'fairy tale image of Palin' presented at the Republican National Convention." "I said something to him like, 'well, there may be five of us, but we're ready to debate this and he cussed us out," student Ben Faurer said Thursday. "He's trying to avoid all this, go along like nothing is happening." http://cbs4denver.com/local/palin.essay.denver.2.820285.html My question to you is: What should happen to this professor? Should he be fired? Reprimanded? Talked to? Or do you feel his conduct was perfectly acceptable? Has anyone on mylot ever had a professor like this?

People like this have no business in education. I guess that is why they call them professors and not teachers. he isn't teaching anything rather professing his views at them and in order to pass they must agree with him. I don't care what the issue is, when they do this it is wrong.
