A sociology professor from the University of Tampa put out a tweet on Sunday afternoon telling the world that Texas residents deserve the death, destruction and suffering caused by Hurricane Harvey because Texan voters supported President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
This hateful 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 did what hate filled repugnant people do and 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 further went on and said 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. And if you for one second buy into his apology you are just as guilty. We do not have to accept hate.
Storey has also appears to have dramatically altered his Twitter presence. On 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. He is obviously saving face, trying to not get fired, and in full retreat mode.
The University of Tampa website for Storey describes him as a visiting assistant professor. Storey has a master’s degree from the University of Central Florida and he teaches an intro course in sociology. His research includes“urban issues within the southeastern United States, including research in gun shows, planned communities and unique issues of tourism focused commercial districts.” (Related: Watch: Weather Channel Anchor Drops Everything to Make a Very American Rescue)
Texan officials say least nine people have sadly died as a result of the severe flooding and continuing storms in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, according to The Washington Post.
The death toll will likely rise as rivers continue to rise, dams overflow in the aftermath of the storms and as significantly more rain — up to as much as 20 more inches — pummels the Texas this week.
President Trump won the state of Texas in 2016 by about 9 percent of the electorate. Nearly 3.9 million of the state’s residents voted for former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, Trump’s Democratic opponent.
The University of Tampa is private college institution. A single year of undergraduate student tuition, fees and room and board at the school costs $38,928.
