In a very troubling discovery, the FBI is investigating a Kent State University professor who may have ties to ISIS.

Fox News reports:

An Ohio college professor who called Israel “the spiritual heir to Nazism” and spoke openly about “Jihad” is being investigated by the FBI for possible links to ISIS. An FBI spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday that the bureau was looking into Kent State University associate professor Julio Cesar Pino for ties to the terrorist group, the Akron Beacon Journal reported. Pino, who is also reportedly known as “Assad”, is an associate professor of history specializing in Latin American history and the third world.

“Because it’s an ongoing investigation, I can’t say too much about it,” the spokeswoman said. Pino, who is from Cuba and is a convert to Islam, denied the allegations.

“I’ve never broken the law,” he told the Beacon Journal. “I support no violence or violent organizations. One man or one woman’s interpretation of events can be very different from another’s. As they say, ‘Haters gonna hate.’ Truth always prevails, and truth will prevail in this case.”

Apparently Professor “Assad” has been in past trouble for shouting “death to Israel” during a speech in 2011. He was not fired despite his outburst, his hateful classroom lectures, and a Facebook page full of controversial images and comments, because he is a tenured professor.

It might be time to re-evaluate the tenure program. What do you think?
