Roy Exum: Fire This MTSU Joker

Belmont University tags itself as “a Christian college” when, in fact, it is like a number of the charlatan temples for higher learning that brainwash our nation’s young people. Last Wednesday a “liberal lulu” from Middle Tennessee State shamed both universities and the state of Tennessee during a lecture. Dr. Joseph Morgan of MTSU’s music department. was thought to be delivering a presentation, “Popular Music and Presidential Politics.”

But – no! - when he took the stage, the projector behind the podium read, “Popular Music and the Impending Tyranny of Donald Trump,” and this twisted classic guitar professor veered so far off the course of his agreed text Belmont officials were shocked.

The MTSU professor-of-our-young (your daughters and mine who sit in church together week after week) continued to commit his mind-rape of one minor after another, soon playing several controversial songs. The worst was again a very loud version by the rapper JG where he used the words, “I think we got kicked out because we're a group of black people and like, I guess people... what's going on in ... Yeah, n***, f*** Donald Trump … Yeah, yeah, f*** Donald Trump, yeah.”

Believe it or not, patents are pending to protect the rapper’s integrity, where it will be known as U.S. Patent 9401941. Prof.  Song Discussions is protected by U.S. Patent 9401941. Other patents pending. You gotta believe this is paramount hate, a very loud song where the tag line in the song is “F*** Donald Trump” – over and over -- and peppered his presentation with the “N-word,” the “P-word” and other references of female sex organs.

Just so you’ll know, tuition at Belmont is $34,310 per year to attend the Nashville school. Instate tuition at MTSU is $9,216 and there are 21,913 students in Murfreesboro. As a parent or guardian of a college student who has no choice to be succumbed to the academic filth, please know that attendance proof of any student who rejects the bias or the filth Prof. Morgan encompasses at the Christian school of Belmont, will fail the requirements of the class and will be issued a failing grade.

Each university has boards of trustees where such rabble will get you put in jail. Pick any street corner downtown and turn up “F*** Donald Trump” real loud. The cops will arrive within 100 seconds. But an idiot can say from an open podium in the guise of whatever higher education he chooses, the vile language and totally unnecessary degradation that he very mistakenly thinks we want to hear, and that is “higher education” at its liberal best.

In Tennessee we thrive on the promise we have at our calling a world class promise of a sound education, and that our learning must be premier. And yet here’s this total joke of a teacher, who actually flaunts his prejudice and his vulgarly, in what he deems is excellent fodder for the human mind. His twisted principles and heinous ego should get him fired by tomorrow noon at the latest.

His views are shared by no one I know in this state. Belmont and “Middle” have both issued statements of regret and remorse over Joseph Morgan’s behavior and deception last week. Here are excerpts of both college statements:

* -- FROM BELMONT: "Earlier today an outside speaker appeared at Belmont University and shared content about politics and popular culture that was biased and disrespectful … The University feels betrayed by the deception implicit in the actions of the guest speaker. Belmont University does not endorse the message that was delivered and also strongly objects to the obscene language that was used. We apologize to anyone who was offended as today's event was not reflective of our Christian identity nor of our institutional commitment to civil political discourse."

* -- FROM MIDDLE TENNESSEE: Jimmy Hart, a spokesman for MTSU, said Morgan’s lecture “covered previously published research by our faculty member, which was known by the Belmont professor prior to the event. Some examples cited in the lecture included coarse lyrics and a discussion on whether such harsh language helped or hindered the intended message by the artists. Our faculty member assures us he did not share or advocate any personal political beliefs in the lecture.”

* * *

One Belmont student, Kam Higgins: “I have never been more disappointed in a “Christian campus” in my life. no matter what your political opinions are, that is insanely disrespectful.”

I have said many, many times that “I love funny but hate filthy.” I have to be careful with my “Saturday Funnies” each week and try to use “The 14 Rule” as often as I can apply it – “Would I let my 14-year-old daughter read this, knowing it came from her dad?”

I agree with Kam Higgins. No one in America deserves to be lambasted in a public forum in the way MTSU professor Joseph Morgan assaulted the president of our nation. I think Trump could sue MTSU, Belmont and Morgan for blatant ‘character assassination,’ which is what it’s called when there is an attempt to tarnish a person's reputation.

By legal definition, “It may involve exaggeration, misleading half-truths, or manipulation of facts to present an untrue picture of the targeted person. It is a form of defamation and can be a form of ad hominem argument.”

My beef is that I don’t care if it is Nancy Pelosi, fallen football star Colin Kaepernick, or any other of the society misfits you can recall, every human being deserves to be respected unless there a solid amount of despicable reputation that has been earned and, only term, in the proper setting. My nation elected Donald Trump. His tweets embarrass me, his brash confidence repulses me, and his feeling he has to bully somebody every day I dislike. But he is my president, elected by my people, and I’ll stand beside him

Remember, “Love the funny … hate the filthy.”
