Antifa Professor 'Removed' From Iowa Community College
Kirkwood Community College President Lori Sundberg released a statement Friday saying that the college accepted Jeff Klinzman’s resignation, according to a press release. However, Sundberg went on to reference the college's "decision to remove Mr. Klinzman from the classroom," suggesting that Klinzman's resignation was not voluntary.
On Thursday, Klinzman admitted to a local media outlet (KCRG) that he is active with Antifa. According to the local media report, Klinzman expressed his desire to engage in political violence in a comment posted to an Antifa Facebook page.
“With the safety of our students, faculty, and staff as our top concern, we made the decision this morning to identify an instructor who will take over the one course that Mr. Klinzman was to have taught this semester,” Sundberg stated. “We have spoken with Mr. Klinzman this afternoon about this matter and have accepted his resignation."
Klinzman says what he has posted on social media drew complaints at Kirkwood Community College.
On the Facebook page for "Iowa Antifa", one can find a litany of far-left statements and conversations. One of them features a tweet from President Donald Trump where he calls the group, "Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting... people over the heads with baseball bats". Professor Klinzman wrote in response, "Yeah, I know who I'd clock with a bat..."
A search through Klinzman's Facebook page shows over the years he has also made statements expressing his desire to "stop evangelical Christians" where he included a poem that said, "Kill them all and bury them deep in the ground". Klinzman went on to explain, "It's not pretty, and I'm not proud, but seeing what evangelical Christians are doing to this county and its people fills me with rage, and a desire to exact revenge."
“Antifa is a terrorist organization composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda through aggressive violence. Time and time again their actions have demonstrated that their central purpose is to inflict harm on those who oppose their views. Like any terrorist organization they choose to pursue their political ends through violence, fear and intimidation. They must be stopped." - Ted Cruz
