Professor: Texans ‘Deserve’ Harvey Because They Voted For Trump

A sociology professor at the University of Tampa published a tweet on Sunday afternoon suggesting that Texas residents deserve the death, destruction and suffering caused by Hurricane Harvey because a majority of Texas voters supported Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

The professor is Kenneth L. Storey, reports Campus Reform.

“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 wrote in one tweet.

When another Twitter user responded that Texas is home to “good people” and that Storey “may want to rethink” the tweet, Storey doubled down.

“Well, the good people there need to do more to stop the evil their state pushes. I’m only blaming those who support the GOP there,” Storey wrote.

The professor also declared that Florida residents who voted for Trump “deserve” the suffering visited upon Texas by Hurricane Harvey this weekend.

Storey has since deleted the Hurricane Harvey-related tweets and apologized.

He has also appears to have dramatically altered his Twitter presence. As of Monday evening, Storey no longer includes a photo for his Twitter account. Also, though Twitter has recorded some 72,700 tweets by Storey, just four currently show up on his tweets page.

The University of Tampa webpage for Storey describes him as a visiting assistant professor. He has a master’s degree from the University of Central Florida and he teaches an introductory course in sociology. His research involves “urban issues within the southeastern United States, including research in gun shows, planned communities and unique issues of tourism focused commercial districts.”

Texas officials say least nine people have died as a result of the severe storms and flooding in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, according to The Washington Post.

The death toll will likely increase as rivers continue to rise in the aftermath of the storms and as significantly more rain — up to 20 more inches — pummels the state this week.

Trump won the state of Texas in 2016 by about 9 percent of the vote. Nearly 3.9 million of the state’s residents voted for Hillary Clinton, Trump’s Democratic opponent.

The University of Tampa is private. A single year of undergraduate tuition, fees and room and board at the school costs $38,928.

    So a ‘lefty’ in Tampa thinks it is ok for bad things to happen to people who stand up to bullies and murders like the Clintons. He probably thinks the soldiers in Benghazi deserved to die for getting in the way of Hillary and obama’s gun running to the Syrians. A very strange idea of values, kill the people who stand up for our country.

    Sounds like this professor needs to read up on facts before he opens his pathetic mouth. How sad that someone would say Houston deserves this tragedy, because of a vote ?? !! He was wrong, but I can assure you I voted fro President Trump and would do it again. It’s replies like this that has this country in the mess it’s in.
