Brent Terry, a professor at Eastern Connecticut State University, was caught on tape telling his Introduction to Creative Writing class that Republicans will close colleges if they win in the 2014 midterm elections. Terry can also be heard on the audio clip calling Republicans “racist, misogynist, money-grubbing people” who seek to suppress the liberal vote.
Here’s a transcript of Terry’s tirade via Campus Reform:
In a four-minute recording of a classroom lecture obtained by Campus Reform, Professor Brent Terry is heard strongly suggesting that conservatives are greedy racists who want to suppress the vote of anyone who might vote liberal.
“…racist, misogynist, money-grubbing people have so much power over the rest of us. And want things to go back—not to 1955, but to 1855,” Terry said to his Introduction to Creative Writing class Monday morning.
“There are a lot of people out there that do not want black people to vote, do not want Latinos to vote. Do not want old people to vote, or young people to vote. Because generally, people like you are liberal.”
The audio, captured by a current student who wishes to remain anonymous, also claims that if Republicans win the senate in 2014, colleges will start “closing up.”
“It’s absolutely possible that the Republicans will take over the Senate as well as the House. And we will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens. I mean, colleges will start closing up if they, if these people have their way.”
