College campuses are known to breed and cultivate liberal and progressive agendas. However, it appears that a professor at Kent State University has pushed the envelope of what is acceptable too far.
Julio Cesar Pino, an associate professor of history is under investigation by the FBI for allegedly having links to ISIS. According to Fox News, an independent investigation revealed that Pino’s facebook page was littered with posts praising Osama Bin Laden as well as urging Al Qaeda to join forces with ISIS.
“Sheik Osama (May Allah be pleased with him) was the greatest, and deserves praise for kicking off this jihad. However the organization he left behind is the same AQ he founded. The brave warriors of AQAP and the Nusraf Jabbat should join #IslamicState,” Pino posted on his Facebook page. The post has since been deleted, but not before it raised eyebrows and suspicion.
Pino claimed his support for terrorists is just a misunderstanding. “I’ve never broken the law,” Pino said. “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.”
Despite Pino’s claims of innocence, the truth is that his postings of support for Islamic terrorist groups have been preserved in screenshots.
In 2014, Pino wrote an open letter to “academic friends of Israel” in which he accuses pro-Israel people as being responsible of the murder of Palestinian children and women. Not leaving any doubts of where his allegiance falls, Pino signed the letter “Jihad until victory!”
In another smoking gun post, a picture of Pino in front of the U.S. Capitol Building was posted onto the account in 2012. The comment on the photo said, “I come to bury D.C., not to praise it.”
Perhaps the most shocking aspect of this case is that Pino is still currently teaching classes at the university.
Whether or not the FBI is able to build a case around Pino’s love for ISIS, one question needs to be asked. Is this who you want to teach your children?
