  • Brent Terry, professor at Eastern Connecticut State University, told his class that a GOP victory will turn America into a"very different kind of country," "colleges will start closing up."
  • A professor at Eastern Connecticut State University (ECSU) was caught on audio telling his creative writing class that Republicans will close colleges if they prevail in 2014 and that “racist, misogynist, money-grubbing people” want to suppress the liberal vote.

    In a four-minute recording of a classroom lecture obtained by Campus ReformProfessor Brent Terry is heard strongly suggesting that conservatives are greedy racists who want to suppress the vote of anyone who might vote liberal.

    “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.   

    “...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."

    “They don't think money should go to giving you people dangerous ideas about how the world should be run,” Terry said.

    Professor Terry has not responded to request for comment from Campus Reform

    UPDATE: A spokesperson for Eastern Connecticut State University told Campus Reform “Our faculty has academic freedom to conduct their classes in whatever way they choose, this is not a university matter.”
