Sometimes, the “resistance” against Donald Trump goes just a little too far.
Upon his election to the highest office in the land Donald Trump was met with some of the fiercest opposition of any such politician since perhaps Lincoln himself. This widespread anti-Trump fervor has caused a great many, otherwise-cogent Americans into supporting some far out and uncouth positions…all for the sake of resisting Trump.
So, when the President told Iran last week that he had 52 of their cultural sites in the crosshairs of the US military, a great many liberals took umbrage with the threat.
One professor in Massachusetts took things a little too far, however.
Babson College Professor Asheen Phansey was suspended from his post this week after he made a Facebook status encouraging Iran to list 52 American cultural sites that they would consider bombing. Phansey suggested the Mall of America and the “Kardashian residence” as potential Iranian targets.
According to a report by the New York Post, Babson College Director of Sustainability Asheen Phansey has been suspended by the college over a Facebook post in which he called on Iran to list places in America that it would consider bombing.
On Facebook, Phansey ordered Iran to tweet a list of 52 sites of “beloved American cultural heritage” that Iran could bomb. He listed the “Mall of America” and the “Kardashian residence” as potential examples in an attempted dig at American pop culture.
“In retaliation, Ayatollah Khomenei [sic] should tweet a list of 52 sites of beloved American cultural heritage that he would bomb,” Phansey wrote in the post. “Um… Mall of America? Kardashian residence?”
Phansey was immediate suspended by Babson College, with school officials stating that they considered the social media post to be akin to a “threat”.
