Professor who criticized Otto Warmbier gets canned

Written by  Melissa Klein, Joe Tacopino

A University of Delaware professor who caused outrage by criticizing the college student who died after being held prisoner in North Korea lost her adjunct position on Sunday.

“Katherine Dettwyler, who last taught in the spring as an adjunct faculty member, will not be rehired to teach at the University in the future,” read a statement from the school.

Dettwyler reportedly wrote on her personal Facebook page that former detainee Otto Warmbier had a “typical of a mindset of a lot of the young, white, rich, clueless males who come into my classes.”

She added that the Warmbier “got exactly what he deserved.”

Warmbier died Monday after being freed from a North Korea prison for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster from his hotel in early 2016.

He stole a propaganda poster, to liberals propaganda is sacred .... it's all they have. Hence he said he got what he deserved. These people love their propaganda.

You mean to tell the world that a LIBERAL IDIOT was not given a permanent job for attacking a dead white male??? That I find shocking. I would have figured her to be given a life long job and a massive pay raise for attacking a white male.

That is better than HE got, which was death, over a stupid poster! How utterly absurd!

After canning her, I would have put her on a slow freighter to North Korea for some real R&R!

I wish someone in not too many words, could tell me just what kind of RESPONSIBLE parent would allow, much less PAY FOR, their son or daughter to go to North Korea in the 1st place? What in the hell were they thinking? All I can think of is "braggin rights"..... Oh, Otto is in North Korea this summer......... I don't believe this professor should have been terminated for speaking the TRUTH. Her statement may have been a bit callous, but it's TRUE.

How do you know they did? He was in China where they offer the tourist trip, bad decision but she spoke about white make privilege blah blah blah. Where's that compassion? His friend went to the store to buy propaganda posters so I'm pretty sure this was a frame job and he did nothing at all wrong. On top of that 292k people do that same tour and the only people who have been held were the four Americans who visited. And the fact his parents and friends are hurting would be enough to show a modicum of kindness and keep your mouth shut for that professor. They don't teach much history nowadays, maybe if the education in H.S. and college was better he would have known you just don't ever visit N. Korea although many others also visit Iran, same same...and that should stop too, you think?

Young adults are dumb asses. No two ways about it. Why do you think most of them vote for Obama, Hillary, the Evil, & Bernie, the Commie. They simply don't know any better. As far as the parents paying for this trip (TO NK!!!), I doubt very seriously that they did. They seem like nice but not too bright Libs but I doubt they are still so brain dead as to think that a trip to that godforsaken land is appropriate. The one person who is supposed to have a functioning brain is that foolish professor. She gets no grace from me.
