Stanford Students Call For Resignation of Antifa-Linked Professor
Several Stanford University student groups are calling for the resignation of a professor with ties to the far-left, extremist group Antifa.
The groups are calling for the university professor to either resign or cut ties with the ‘Antifascist’ student group he founded.
Students with the Stanford Review, as well as the Stanford College Republicans, both assert that any professor involved with a group like Antifa is completely and wholly unacceptable. In a Facebook post the Stanford College Republicans said as much noting their disgust at Professor David Palumbo-Liu’s involvement as a “ring-leader” within Antifa.
Palumbo-Liu was named “Stanford’s most radical professor” in a piece by the Stanford Review two years back, which went to great lengths detailing his involvement in anti-Israel action.
They also highlight Palumbo-Liu’s involvement within the Antifascist movement, most notably emphasizing the organization that he and Purdue University professor, Bill Mullen, co-founded, the Campus Antifascist Network, which the piece said is “undeniably a chapter of a terrorist group.”
When asked via email by The College Fix if he would like to address the op-ed, Palumbo-Liu responded by saying, “simple answer: no.”
Stanford University did not respond to multiple requests for comment on this situation from The College Fix.
The CAN website states its aim is to bring people together to “stem the rise of fascism, whether proudly displayed in hateful exclusionary slogans and posters, or disguised as ‘free speech.’” To fight fascism, CAN plans to “mass counter-mobilizations and broad-based coalitions as key to the fight against these forces.”
