Students Are Demanding A Professor Be Fired For OPPOSING Slavery

Students are petitioning to have a professor at Loyola University New Orleans fired over his opinions on slavery, even though he vehemently opposes it.

Economics professor Walter Block says his opposes slavery because he is a libertarian, but that reasoning isn’t good enough for some students, who wish to see the professor removed because he doesn’t have exactly the same opinions as they do.

A petition, signed by over 600 students, alleges that Block has ‘racist and sexist beliefs’.

The petition claims that Block “has publicly stated that he believes slavery to be wrong because it goes against Libertarianism, not because it is morally wrong.”

This is what Walter Block said.

Quote
The Spectator managed to get a comment from Block, as the professor told the publication “Slavery is wrong, evil and should be outlawed, and slavers be considered criminals and put in jail because it is a rights violation; it is an abomination.”

He said slavery is evil. That is really anti-slavery as it gets. He is a libertarian, a rarity on campus. It is total madness.  :mental:

I consider a violation of civil rights to be a moral wrong. #LiberalismIsAMentalDisease.
