The Bernie Sanders campaign has fired newly hired official Darius Khalil Gordon after the Washington Free Beacon uncovered numerous derogatory remarks he'd made toward gays, Jews, and women.

 

The Sanders campaign told CNN Friday afternoon that Gordon had been let go, but did not comment on his remarks. "He is no longer with the campaign and we wish him the best," campaign spokesman Mike Casca said.

 

Gordon announced on Wednesday that he had been hired as the campaign's new deputy director of constituency organizing. Neither Gordon nor the campaign responded to Free Beacon inquiries.

 

Gordon's tweets included homophobic slurs, anti-Semitic references to "Jew money," and degrading comments about women. His Twitter account was deactivated on Friday afternoon.

 

Linda Sarsour, an anti-Israel activist who recently compared Zionists to white supremacists, remains with the Sanders campaign.

Warren earned nearly $2 million working as a consultant for corporations and financial firms, records show

 

 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) earned the income while she was a law professor at Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania and other schools, according to records her campaign released Sunday evening. The payments do not fit neatly with her current brand as a crusader against corporate interests.
This is a developing story. It will be updated.

Who makes derogatory remarks these days?    But, to be fair what passes a derogatory remarks against someone of a group could just be posting "that person is an idiot' and it turns out that person is a member of some protected group.

0% diversity on Yale campus:

 

 

Yale Prof Estimates Faculty Political Diversity at ‘0%’
Pressure to join the “herd groupthink” in New Haven.
 

https://www.wsj.com/...t-0-11575926185(paywall)

 

 

originally from the Yale Daily News:

 

Despite Yale’s push for increased diversity among faculty members — specifically with regards to demographic categories such as race, gender and sexual orientation — several members of the University community voiced their concerns about the lack of political diversity.

 
According to data from the Office of Institutional Research, the faculty gender gap is shrinking. Since 2006, the percentage of female Faculty of Arts and Sciences members has grown from roughly one-quarter to one-third. Yale faculty have also grown racially diverse over the years.
 
But conservative professors criticized what they saw as a lack of effort to recruit a faculty body that better represents the nation’s political makeup. Four professors interviewed by the News said that as is, Yale’s climate stifles political discourse. According to a 2017 survey, almost 75 percent of Yale professors said they were liberal. Still, according to University President Peter Salovey, Yale is actively seeking to recruit scholars from a range of backgrounds with different perspectives.
 
“I think diverse points of view, ideas that challenge the mainstream … represented in a University setting are critical to both providing a great educational environment and also to making headway in scholarship and research,” Salovey said in an interview with the News. “And that diversity of thinking includes, but is not limited to, a range of political opinions.”

“Yale talks a lot of diversity, but basically all that diversity means here is skin color,” Eire said. “There’s definitely no diversity here when it comes to politics. The liberal point of view is taken to be objective — not an opinion, not a set of beliefs.”

 
When it comes to politics, Eire said that his views do not exactly align with one party. On some issues, he says, he is conservative. On others, he is “more liberal than people who call themselves liberal.” Still, he added that most of his colleagues would call him a conservative.
 
“There’s an assumption that goes unquestioned that if you’re not part of the herd groupthink there’s something wrong with you,” he said.
