KARMA: University of Tampa Fires Professor for Hurricane Comments

The University of Tampa has fired the left-leaning professor who said Texas “deserves” Hurricane Harvey because the state voted for President Trump; releasing a statement on social media that confirmed the instructor has “been relieved of his duties.”

The University posted the statement on its official Facebook page, saying the institution “condemns” Kenneth Storey’s comments and that he would no longer be teaching at the college.

“On Sunday, Aug. 27, visiting assistant professor of sociology Kenneth Storey made comments on a private Twitter account that do not reflect UT’s community views or values. We condemn the comments and the sentiment behind them, and understand the pain this irresponsible act has caused,” said the statement.

“Storey has been relieved of his duties at UT, and his classes will be covered by other sociology faculty,” it adds.

Sociology professor Kenneth Storey made headlines over the weekend when he claimed the devastating storm was a form of “instant karma” because the Gulf Coast voted republican during the 2016 general election.

“I don’t believe in instant Karma but this kinda feels like it for Texas. Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesn’t care about them,” Storey tweeted.

He later apologized for his comments, saying “I deeply regret a statement I posted yesterday. I never meant to wish ill will upon any group. I hope all affected by Harvey recover quickly.”

    Hats off to The University of Tampa. How can anyone be dumb enough and uncaring about human life as this Kenneth Storey. But, he can always get a job at the Univesity of Chicago, they will hire anybody like they did with homegrown terrorist Bill Ayers.

    I am glad they canned the guy. Now let’s see how many lawyers crawl out of the toilet to file a lawsuit to get the guys job back.

    Finally someone is stepping to the plate to make people take responsibility for their hate remarks. More should be fired. If congress doesn’t do something to stop all these protests that ARE NOT FREE SPEECH…they are twisting the true meaning of “free speech” ….they are really doing TREASON and civil disobedience’s, crime speech acts on our President and his family. DOES ANYONE THINK IT WILL GET ANY BETTER? THE HATERS FEEL EMPOWERED AS THEY ARE NOT HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTS OF CRIME AND IT IS CRIMES!!! CRIMES AGAINST OUR BELOVED AMERICA TO BRING IT DOWN. I HOLD CONGRESS AS THE NUMBER ONE RESPONSIBLE AT THE MOMENT FOR THINGS GETTING SO MUCH WORSE SO FAST AND SO OUT OF HAND. It is soooo sad that a great movie seen millions of times and offended no one is not shown in a theater in the south now (Gone with the Wind). LET THE DEAD STAY DEAD! THE CIVIL HAS BEEN OVER FOR OVER 100 YEARS. LET THE LIVING HAVE LIFE OF PEACE. I have a suggestion for those who feel they are owed something from the Civil War. Let’s look into your past…mmmmm…I am quite sure you have done something not right…let’s hold you accountable for it. Maybe cheated on a test? Well let’s do as you are doing now in your judging. Let’s take your diploma away…mmm…take a raise away from your job. Perhaps cut your mail box down, after all it has your name on it! WISH IT COULD BE DONE UNTO YOU HATERS AS YOU ARE DOING UNTO AMERICANS WHO LOVE HER AND WANT HER SAFE FOR EVERYBODY. The problem we don’t know how to hate like that….just grieving and hurting for what we see and hear happening to our America. (HOW DEMONIC TO ATTACK OUR FIRST LADY’S SHOES TODAY…SURE GETTING SICKENING DESPERATE).

    Another example of Trump-hating dementia disease. It affects common sense, feelings and tolerance. No cure unless want to be cured. Sad. It is spreading.

    He deserves to never hold a teaching job again. They said he was a Visiting professor. Visiting from where? He can go to California though, they will give him a job.
