Todd Starnes @ Fox News:
Tyler Talgo was fed up.
For two years the University of Southern California student had listened to the classroom ranting of liberal professors. So it wasn’t much of a surprise when Darry Sragow, his political science professor, launched into an anti-Republican tirade on the first day of class.
“I knew that this was going to be a professor that was very left-wing, very biased,” Talgo told Fox News. “I knew this would be one of those classes where the professor would be biased all the time.”
So Talgo decided to fight back.
“As soon as I got back to my dorm, I decided to video his lectures,” he said. “I got inspired.”
The 20-year-old political science major bought a hidden camera disguised as a shirt button. And that’s how he was able to secretly videotape every single lecture delivered by Professor Sragow.
“It’s one thing to say this happened,” Talgo said. “It’s another thing to show that it happened.”
Talgo culled 15-minutes worth of Republican, Tea Party and conservative ranting from Sragow’s lectures and shared them with Campus Reform reporters Oliver Darcy and Josiah Ryan.
“On the first day of class he talked about how Republicans prevent blacks from voting,” Talgo said. “He also said that he used to work for Democratic candidates and it was his job to kill Republicans.”
The video shows Sragow peppering his lectures with curse words and ridicule for Republicans – with his teaching assistant joining in on the attacks.
“They’re really stupid and racist,” Sragow said at one point. “The Republican party is increasingly the last refuge of old, angry white people who don’t like what’s going on in this country.”
“Old white guys are stubborn sons of bitches,” he noted.
Professor Sragow told Fox News that he has absolutely no regrets over any of his classroom lectures.
“I have said them many times to many audiences, and if the student had told me he was taping my comments I still would have said them,” he told Fox News. “I had had this exact conversation with many of my Republican colleagues and friends.”
Sragow said it is possible Talgo may have violated the student code of conduct by secretly taping his classes.
“While I am very candid and direct, I never say anything unless I am willing to have it repeated with attribution,” the professor said. “If he thought he was playing a dirty trick by taping me, it lacks creativity and the effort deserves maybe a C-plus.”
The video shows the professor opining on a number of issues ranging from Mitt Romney to accusations that the GOP suppressed the black vote.
“Republicans are trying to prevent people of color and people of lower income from voting by requiring voter I.D.,” he said.
During one lecture, a student asked how to stop Republicans from voting.
The teaching assistant chimed in, “Put up Panthers outside of the polling place.”
The professor responded, “Yeah, yeah. You can do that.”
This “professor” is encouraging federal employees (Post Office) to lose voting materials instead of delivering them to known Republican households.
That is a federal crime.
So, encouraging others to commit a federal crime is …. what?
If you cannot win on ideas, then resort to dirty tricks and name calling. That is the mantra that seems to pervade the thinking in the ideologically driven left of this country.
The ”professor” had a bit more than dirty tricks and name calling: he could GRADE his students on how closely they aligned their view with his own!
And, if he demanded essays or test answers on this same crap, he could blackmail any who wrote what they had to write to get an A when or if they later disagreed with him in public life.
Of course, for this, USC might give him a raise and promotion.
@Nan G: Academic resume enhancement
@Nan G: Reading my mind – or was I reading yours?
DARRY SRAGO should be fire on the spot for inciting the students
with hateful rhetoric
thank’s to TALGO for doing what he did to expose the libtard right on the spot,
SRAGO should know the students are smarter than him,
and won’t stand that hate rhetoric,,
his name is sign now on that college as an inciter to hate, we know where he took his lesson,
that is being repeated in many schools and colleges and should be investigate by the FBI,
thank you TALGO for your courage to expose those spreading hate among the young uninform,
keep your notes, that will spell your courage to get a good job in the futur, which you will deserve on top.
Too bad there is no free market of ideas where this student could have chosen to attend another class, another school…take responsibility for his own education. Just another poor conservative victim.
@Brian Miller: The University of Southern California “is a private, not-for-profit, nonsectarian, research university founded in 1880 with its main campus in Los Angeles, California.”
Definition of non-sectarianism: the opposite of sectarianism.
Definition of sectarianism: bigotry, discrimination or hatred arising from attaching importance to perceived differences between subdivisions within a group, such as between different denominations of a religion, class, regional or factions of a political movement.
This guy is pushing a political agenda when he spouts off instead of giving these kids what they are paying for: unbiased education and the freedom to come to their own conclusions. Critical thinking, not sectarian programing.
The kid took the highest responsibility for his own education; this ideological hack should get fired.
Any other brilliant insights to offer, or are you off trolling somewhere else?
@Nathan Blue: Last night o’Really had his usual tough guy initial stance on this subject then brought in Krautie to do the usual soft pedalling job – “after all you have to remember that all young people are liberal” yeh right — after 13 years of liberal indoctrination and “feelie – feelie good” crap re everything — they have very low to no reasoning skills and usually a spinning or demagnetized moral compass. BOR barely even tried to refute the mushie crap from krautie. Neither one pointed out that the commie professor was hardley a “young person.” That a-hole has probably been pushing that line of crap for 20-30 years in that classroom.
As far as USC being “private” — BS — they get mega tax breaks — all the donations are tax deductable and since USC is a “research” university – you can be assured that a large part of their income is government grants.
Ooops actually – maybe the prof is half right: the GOPe certainly is STUPID.
USC stands for University of Spoiled Children……and those are the teachers!
no the GOP are very smart, it’s the libtards that are stupid enough to think they are fooling the young students, like this guy with the fork tongue, that’s the way to recognize them,
from top to bottom they all have that evil forked tongue,
hi, nice to have you back,
@Budvarakbar: I’m can’t believe I have to spell these things out, but I’ll waste a little time for you:
1. I don’t watch O’Reilly or Krauthammer (or Fox news at all), so you’ve jumped to an illogical and unrelated debate that has nothing to do with this post or my comments. Can’t help you. Fox is not the representative for all non-liberals, though the liberal press would like the weak-minded to think so.
2. USC is a private school . . . that gets tax breaks and subsidies (saying a school is “private” does not preclude state/fed aid–duh.). Again, I’m not sure of your point, but you’ve only bolstered mine. The university is getting funding from the gov . . . and members of it’s staff are promoting a certain political stance rather than free-thinking. That’s a conflict of interest.
Any other brilliant non-thoughts to offer?
Guess what? He’s right. Jihdal said it too.
are you coming here and waste our time with simplicity like this,
step up a few levels a bit
maybe you’re missing something at FOX , if you don’t give it a ear or an eye sometimes,
they have good stuff and they are number one for a reason.
@ilovebeeswarzone: I don’t doubt, but I’ve kept a degree of separation between me and any network, simply because most of the leftists I know are regurgitating Maddow or other pundit’s programing without thinking on their own. When they cite a “Foxism” and I inform them I don’t read/listen to Fox any more than any other source, the whole “we have to stop the idiots programmed by Fox!” battle cry has no worth and they have to support their claims against mine using something other than the “Fox” card.
They are usually silent after that . . .
yes, and I fall into somewhat category sometimes when I like one of FOX specialty, I come in with it here also, if it strike me too hard, they are the very genuine professionals, and remain CONSERVATIVES
to the core, even that they have a policy of exchange with some guess liberal to the core also,
and you get to recognize the underlay talk which is the same for all, as oppose to the
unique personality untouch of the CONSERVATIVES, it play against them also for their honesty in their dialogue is working against them and taken advantage by the OBAMA MEDIAS who are watching any word they can blame them for, that’s their game they are playing viciously if they get a chance there is no mercy between the different journalists from the other front,
but the journalist for CONSERVATIVES are so graceful and well behave, too much for my taste,
the other libtard don’t deserve that classy way.
there is no way for a student to know where he will end up with
if he never been in that college, so he took it and react the right way, but he might have some wrong notes in his last certificate, but he has a proof to give the counter part of why it is lower, his video,
remember NANCY PELOSI SAID; you have to pass it before you know what’s in it.
so he had to do the same, get there and learn, he made the best of it, he is smart.
@ilovebeeswarzone: There are lots of good things to point out about Fox, but the cultural narrative has been so deeply ingrained in the mob that I try to stay away from the “Fox” bomb libs drop.
I’ve been pulled into it, too. In response to a original thought I may express, I’ve had people say “you heard that on Fox! . . . ” and then it’s ok to ignore my point.
Never mind if it had any merit . . .
yes I understand your special last two lines also.
I just notice you navigated me to another POST,
just notice now.
bees, all your posts are exercises in ‘simple’.
remember what CURT said
yes my comment are simple to understand,
straight to the point, no bull
