For those of us old enough to be AARP members, the name “Kent State” conjures up memories of the killings of 4 Kent State students on May 4, 1970 in an over-reaction by Ohio State Guardsmen positioned on the campus during anti-war protests.
This past week Kent State gained a new basis for international notoriety and for a different sort of death, this time of academic standards and decency. Kent State is home to one of the worst tenured jihadists and pseudo-academic barbarians on the planet.
Julio Pino is a tenured pseudo-academic, teaching Latin American history at Kent State. He was born in Cuba in 1960 and is a proud Fidelista, although he seems to prefer the option of having three square meals to eat in the heartland of American capitalism to living in the workers’ paradise. In 2000 he converted to Islam and adopted the new name, Assad Jibril Pino. Since then he has been a professional anti-Semite and rabble rouser against Israel. He routinely denounces Israel for perpetuating “genocide” and Nazi-like crimes. (He evidently has never found any crimes in Cuba committed by the communists there, nor any human rights abuses of Muslims in Muslim regimes.) He proudly admits to being a full-time indoctrinator of his students at Kent State. He has referred to his students at Kent State as his “little jihadists” and his “beloved Taliban.” He insists that the United States is “rapidly descending toward Christian fascism, we need more Ward Churchills.” In September 2000, Pino declared a fatwa on the moderator of the “Marxism List,” proclaiming that those who dared to disagree with him were “hereby sentenced to death.” He routinely celebrates mass murderers and suicide bombers, including the al-Qaeda terrorists who attacked the US on 9-11. The Kent State student paper has had some biting satire to say about all this....
