San Diego State University Defends Administrator Who Called GOP an ‘Extremist Terrorist Organization’

Heat Street reports:
San Diego State University is standing by an associate dean who drew national media attention after calling the Republican Party an “extremist terrorist organization.”

Campus Reform first broke news last week of the Facebook post by Patrick McCarthy, SDSU’s associate dean of library and information access, written in response to a Newsweek article, “Right-Wing Extremists Are a Bigger Threat to America than ISIS.”

The university’s spokeswoman finally responded to the growing controversy on Saturday night. “The views and opinions expressed by faculty and staff on their personal accounts are protected by the First Amendment and do not necessarily reflect the views or positions of the university,” the spokeswoman said in an emailed comment to the student newspaper.
