Apparently the guy who clocked a free speech and Trump supporter in the head with a bike lock at Berkley is……a college professor!
Eric Clanton teaches philosophy at Diablo Valley College. The college’s facebook page is hysterical. The most recent post:
I was inquiring about the teaching position in your Philosophy department you’ll ~hopefully~ have come open very soon, and I would like to declare my interest in filling that position. I don’t have any teaching experience pre se, but seeing that your philosophy professors don’t actually practice ‘deep thought’ and ‘open mindedness’, I don’t see how that’s a problem. Also, I’ve been working for United Airlines for the past 8 years… So I believe I’d be a perfect fit for your institution.
I wonder what, if any, action the college will take.
