Professor Sues Purdue for Violation of his Free Speech Rights on Islam
by Maurice Eisenstein
Frontpage Interview's guest today is Professor Maurice Eisenstein, an associate professor of political science at Purdue University Calumet. He is suing Purdue after the school's investigation of his comments about Islam on Facebook. Though the probe cleared him, he says Purdue still violated his free speech rights.
FP: Professor Maurice Eisenstein, welcome to Frontpage Interview.
I would like to talk to you today about your ordeal at Purdue. How did the whole incident start?
Eisenstein: Thanks Jamie.
The entire attack on my free speech began over a post I made to Facebook in November 2011. I posted a picture with a storyline about an Islamist Muslim group (Boko Haram) killing Christians in Nigeria. I asked: Where were the moderate Muslims? They must be listening to that idiot Mohammad.
