“As stated earlier this week, Mr. Goldberg’s comments on social media are inexcusable and completely antithetical to the Auburn Creed. Higher education is built upon the premise of the free expression of ideas and academic dialogue, but Auburn has not and will never support views that exclude or disrespect others, including hateful speech that degrades law enforcement professionals. Mr. Goldberg was hired on a temporary, non-tenure-track assignment,” the university said.

I'd throw money to support the lawsuit on behalf of the University firing this hate-filled clown.

There's a big difference in saying "frick [insert name of public figure that disparages people and forces his views on everyone]" and saying "frick all police." I know you know that. I bet you've said it yourself. And despite how he acts, Donald Jr. is not a child.

so how long are we expecting to be graced with his presence? Dudes an embarrassment to the university and as I’ve stated before, his only interest is causing trouble so that when we kick him to the curb, he can claim oppression and use it to springboard his academic career at another institution.

That's exactly what he's doing. Pathetic. And depressing, because it's not surprising.

Alabama is a right-to-work state so a non-tenured lecturer at an Alabama public university would have no legal grounds for a lawsuit!

No legal grounds then. Kick his arse to the curb and try to wipe the shite stain off Auburn's good name as soon as possible


eta: i'd also be wary of Goldberg becoming a school shooter. He is not stable

Then no reason to not fire him now before he gets any more. I'd much rather deal with half a plate of shite then a full one.

Plus I wouldn't want him having any influence over students and I'd trespass his arse as soon as I fired him.

There are only two considerations to be made by the University President and English Department Dean.

1. He should have been fired ten minutes ago.

2. He'll be fired in ten minutes.

End of consideration.

Im not a alumni and have no dog in this fight but I agree with this. Now that he has gotten public attention, firing him now would bring the wrath of the "current movement" to Auburns doors.


This would the affect of the torrent of "movement folks" coming into Auburn.

One lone PETA Protestor bitching about Spirit flying into the window by mistake .....People laughing and asking if she would like a hot dog.

ANTIFA headed to a protest at Halley Center. Cops telling them "Take off the mask or spend the protest sitting in jail."

ANTIFA would have gained more air time in Turd Town.

My favorite sign on the front porch of a home in Turd Town.

"This is an Auburn Family and home. If you are not here to say good things about Auburn, get the hell off my porch." holding my ID Badge.

Got a hug from the Home Owner when he saw my lanyard

An employer can fire anyone for any reason except an illegal one, and since Auburn is technically the state, the 1st Amendment applies here. It sucks and I hope this guy realizes he's not wanted here, packs his shite up and leaves, but he's afforded constitutional protections here that may make firing his arse illegal.

FIRE has taken notice of this one. That is a big deal.

re: Who should I contact regarding my disgust of Jesse Goldberg
Yeah with FIRE weighing in Auburn will need to be cautious.

I certainly agree with FIRE's goal, and they're 100% correct that you don't want Auburn using a hate speech basis for removing an employee even when it's the opposite of how such bases are typically used.

Ideally, I'd like to see us put out a statement that Auburn will not punish Goldberg, but rather looks forward to the discourse and critique from students and fellow instructors/professors during the coming academic year. Ultimately, Goldberg's position with the University will be judged based on his success in instruction and ability to have a measurable educational impact on Auburn students.

In other words, declare open season on him. If he can somehow weather it and students like his courses - fine. If he cowers and pitches a fit because he expected a college that would either fire him for speech or protect his radical views, good, get rid of him at the end of his contract and let others know that if you bring that weak arse pseudo-academic social justice shite to Auburn you will get no safe quarter.

re: Who should I contact regarding my disgust of Jesse Goldberg
Has this guy not been fired yet? What if he had said what he said about other groups of people (also wrong, but that's not the point, also don't cancel me)? Would free speech protect him then? Or would the university be cowering before our new overlords? This crap is beyond ridiculous.

Eta: You would be hard-pressed to find a stauncher defender of the 1st amendment than myself, but the 1st amendment does not protect us from suffering consequences when our actions reflect on our employers or selves. The double standards in today's society are out of control.
