At last a little good news. Sharon Sweet, the math professor at Brevard Community College in Cocoa, Florida who forced students to sign a pledge supporting the Moonbat Messiah, looks very likely to get fired. A survey of her students uncovered the following:
• “Professor Sweet strongly encouraged or mandated that students from several classes sign a card that stated, ‘I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.”
• Sweet “misrepresented her intentions to multiple students, indicating at various times that she was conducting voter registration for the college, that the pledge cards were nonpartisan voter registration forms, and that the pledge was a ‘statistical analysis.’ ”
• The “in-class voicing of her political views and actions regarding the distribution of political pledge cards created a hostile academic environment that violated college policy which governs workplace behavior.”
• “Professor Sweet’s actions caused students to feel considerable discomfort, to believe their privacy was being invaded, to fear their grade could be negatively impacted if they refused to sign the pledge cards, and to feel intimidated.”
Despite the overwhelming left-wing bias of the education establishment, appearances still need to be maintained — for now. Sweet’s termination process is underway. Good thing she isn’t a public school teacher; it would drag on for years.
