A visiting University of Tampa professor of sociology was fired Tuesday after he suggested in a tweet Sunday that Texans deserved Hurricane Harvey because of their support for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

University spokesman Eric Cardenas said in a statement that Kenneth Storey was fired after the school weathered an outpouring of online outrage over the comments.

Officials said other faculty in the sociology department would take over Storey’s classes.

“We condemn the comments and the sentiment behind them, and understand the pain this irresponsible act has caused,” the school said in a statement to The University of Tampa community. “As Floridians, we are well aware of the destruction and suffering associated with tropical weather. Our thoughts and prayers are with all impacted by Hurricane Harvey.”

    This fat idiot is typical of the supposed “intellectual” types in universities these days. Liberal morons whose mouth readily gets ahead of their so-called brains.

    So Storey wrote “I don’t believe in instant Karma but this kinda feels like it for Texas. Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesn’t care about them.”
    I am also not a big karma believer, but seems it has caught up with this “professor”. Another shining example of those who educate our youth and their extreme political views. Had this been said about California “deserving” a catastrophe because it supported Hillary not only would the person saying it be fired, it would be on more news outlets other than just Fox. (It would be the lead on NBC, their affiliate outlets, CNN and so many others) Of course by it being on Fox, it is being seen by far more viewers that on CNN or NBC.
