Fallout in academia for moonbat prof

From Town Hall:
Rebecca Beach is a freshman at Warren County Community College (WCCC) in Washington, New Jersey. Recently, she sent an email to the faculty at her school announcing the appearance of a decorated Iraq war hero named Lt. Colonel Scott Rutter. (Not to be confused with pedophile and Saddam shill Scott Ritter - Ed.) The war hero was asked to discuss America’s accomplishments in Iraq.

The simple email announcement was met with the following blistering response from part-time English Professor John Daly (jpdalyca@yahoo.com):
I am asking my students to boycott your event. I am also going to ask others to boycott it. Your literature and signs in the entrance lobby look like fascist propaganda and is [sic] extremely offensive. Your main poster "Communism killed 100,000,000" is not only untrue, but ignores the fact that CAPITALISM has killed many more and the evidence for that can be seen in the daily news papers. The U.S. government can fly to dominate the people of Iraq in 12 hours, yet it took them five days to assist the people devastated by huricane [sic] Katrina. Racism and profits were key to their priorities. Exxon, by the way, made $9 Billion in profits this last quarter--their highest proft [sic] margin ever. Thanks to the students of WCCC and other poor and working class people who are recruited to fight and die for EXXON and other corporations who [sic] earning megaprofits from their imperialist plunders. If you want to count the number of deaths based on political systems, you can begin with the more than a million children who have died in Iraq from U.S.-imposed sanctions and war. Or the million African American people who died from lack of access to healthcare in the US over the last 10 years.

I will continue to expose your right-wing, anti-people politics until groups like your [sic] won't dare show their face [sic] on a college campus. Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors and fight for just causes and for people's needs--such freedom fighters can be counted throughout American history and they certainly will be counted again.

Prof. John Daly
I won't even address the assertions of his moonbattery, except for one: fragging superiors. His response, issued only after the feces hit the fan, was that he was speaking "in the most metaphoric sense." Of course he was, since the rest of his diatribe was so well-reasoned, eloquently stated, and linguistically sound!

Who among us has not committed an occasional typo, or occasionally used the wrong word? Then why am I jumping on this guy like Michael Moore on a Happy Meal? Because this schmuck is an English professor! He got his master's degree in lunguistics! Parents are actually paying this school to teach their kids to learn from this moron, so consider this a public service announcement: Parents, if you care about your kids' education, do NOT send your kids to Warren County Community College!

Of course, Daly's employer isn't much better in the rhetorical eloquence department. From their web site's home page, which is currently dedicated to addressing the controversy of Daly's comments:
The Board of Trustees intends to consider the welfare and rights of its students, the college community, and the public in lieu [sic] of recent events. The board will also consider personnel issues.
That's "in light of", geniuses (or genii?). No wonder they hired this guy Daly: he looks brilliant compared to them in terms of the written English language (which, rumor has it, is still the overwhelmingly spoken language in America).
