It’s pretty strong language coming from someone who describes himself as “anti-gun.” But at least his loyalties seem to be in the right place. Or do they?
If you look at the June 13 Facebook post by James Pearce, an adjunct professor at Southern State Community College (SSCC), in Ohio, you learn that the terrorist group whose headquarters he wants to invade is not ISIS. It’s not al Qaeda or Hezbollah or any of the other Islamist cults. Nope. The organization he wants to “storm” is the National Rifle Association, headquartered in Fairfax, Va.
Here’s the post in its entirety:
According to Campus Reform, Pearce is now under investigation by the college Security and Emergency Response team as well as local — and federal — law enforcement:
Kris Cross, Director of Public Relations for SSCC, told Campus Reform that “it is the college’s policy not to comment on individual personnel matters,” but 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,” she explained. “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.”
The article fails to comment on Pearce’s blatant hypocrisy in threatening deadly violence, but that’s hardly unique among the Left these days.
