Freedom of speech does not equate to freedom from judgment or reprisal.
Yes, Jarrar, I’m now speaking directly to you. I personally don’t care if you’re a representative of your school or simply a citizen whenever you decide to vomit your degrading, demeaning, and derogatory statements all over the Internet. As a human being I find your lack of empathy disturbing and your overall point of view completely short-sighted. You are the perfect example of how decent human beings should not behave. Your negative attitude is a disease that unfortunately, seems to be eating away at our society.
As professors, we should hold ourselves to a higher standard. We are supposed to be role models. It surprises me that as an English professor, you lack the ability to express yourself in a more constructive way.
I’m not delusional. I know you you’ll continue to think you’re a bad-ass, when in fact, you’re just an ass. You’ll likely continue to spew venom whenever you open your mouth and your laptop.
In the end, you’ve managed to fool yourself into believing you stand for something. In reality, you’re nothing but a bully with an over-sized ego who likes to throw virtual rocks at old people.
