College Professor Says Iran Should Target 52 Sites In America — PROMPTLY GETS FIRED
After President Trump took out Qasem Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s Quds Force and the world’s No. 1 terrorist, he sent a message to the nation’s leaders via Twitter.
“Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets,” the president wrote Saturday on Twitter. “We have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!”
That prompted a response from Babson College adjunct professor Asheen Phansey.
“In retaliation, Ayatollah Khomenei should tweet a list of 52 sites of beloved American cultural heritage that he would bomb,” Phansey said in a Facebook post. “Um… Mall of America? …Kardashian residence?”
Hilarious, right? Not to Babson College, which quickly canned him.
“Babson College conducted a prompt and thorough investigation related to a post shared on a staff member’s personal Facebook page that does not represent the values and culture of the College. Based on the results of the investigation, the staff member is no longer a Babson College employee. As we have previously stated, Babson College condemns any type of threatening words and/or actions condoning violence and/or hate,” the college said in a statement.
Phansey apologized for the post, saying it was just a joke.
“I am sorry that my sloppy humor was read as a threat,” he said. “I am completely opposed to violence and would never advocate it by anyone.”
