Let’s Get To Know America’s Stupidest College Professor

Font Size:

Adam Kotsko, an assistant professor at Shimer College, a tiny great books bastion on the South Side of Chicago, has had a very rough ride in the last 72 or so hours thanks to the amazing corrective power of the Internet.

On Tuesday, Kotsko boldly and immediately took to Twitter after masked Islamist fanatics massacred a dozen employees of Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical website, for writing about Islam. Kotsko told the world that the horrifying terrorist attack was foreseeable because Charlie Hebdo is “a newspaper devoted to hate speech,” notes Campus Reform.

“It’s no more surprising that someone would attack a newspaper devoted to hate speech than that someone would beat up Westboro protestors,” he wrote. (RELATED: College Professor: Paper Attacked By Islamists Was ‘Devoted To Hate Speech’)

After an actually foreseeable and instant storm of criticism, Kotsko responded by apologizing, and literally begging Salondotcom to delete screen-cap of the tweets.

Kotsko’s continuous apology tour ever since has been a sight to behold.

Kotsko is now arguing that his Twitter screed was based on “misinformation” about the attacks and about Charlie Hebdo.

“I had somehow gotten the impression that the publication in question was an exclusively anti-Muslim one, devotedly solely to insulting and marginalizing Muslims,” the professor who holds a Ph.D. in theology, ethics, and culture from Chicago Theological Seminary wrote in a blog posting.

“Secondly, I did not realize the full scale of the attack, which does not appear to be the result of inarticulate rage (as I had initially envisioned) but of significant planning motivated by a political strategy that, while profoundly misguided and unrealistic, does make it something other than a crime of passion.”

Kotsko also excuses himself by arguing that he deleted his moronic, totally uninformed tweets.

“Unfortunately, someone screen captured them and reframed them as a justification of the attacks. I want to be clear that I did not intend to justify the attacks.”

Despite his foolish tweeting and the fact that he was forced by social reaction to retract his own idiotic spoutings, Kotsko remains an active tweeter.

He has also attempted to clear up any misunderstanding over his tweets about Charlie Hebdo not being a “right-wing hate rag,” notes Campus Reform.

“Yet not all right-wing publications are hate rags,” he assured anyone reading his obscure blog rants.

Kotsko’s world-historically embarrassing Twitter managed to involve The Daily Caller.
