Girl bye: Lisa Durden fired following her racist BLM remarks on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’

Lisa Durden is now a “victim”

Boo- hoo-hoo.

From Fox News: A New Jersey college professor who appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to defend a black-only Black Lives Matter event has been fired after the college’s president said she made racially insensitive comments on the show, according to reports.

Essex County College in Newark announced Lisa Durden’s firing Friday. She taught communications and pop culture classes as an adjunct, the Newark Star-Ledger reported.

On his June 6 show, Carlson and Durden, who is black, got into a heated exchange over the appropriateness of allowing only blacks to attend a Black Lives Matter event in New York City on Memorial Day.

“Listen. What I say to that is boo-hoo-hoo,” she said. “You white people are angry because you couldn’t use your ‘white privilege’ card to get invited to the Black Lives Matter’s all-black Memorial Day celebration! Wow!”

Two days after the show, the school suspended Durden with pay. She addressed the matter with school officials Tuesday, three days before the firing was announced.

College president Anthony Munroe said Friday the Fox News appearance prompted calls from students, faculty and prospective students and their families “expressing frustration, concern and even fear that the views expressed by a college employee with influence over students would negatively impact their experience on the campus.”

He noted that although Durden did not mention her affiliation with the school during the show or claim to be representing its views, “her employment with us and potential impact on students required our immediate review into what seemed to have become a very contentious and divisive issue.” 

Munroe went further in explaining his reasons for firing Durden in a lengthy statement — in which he invoked the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

“The character of this institution mandates that we embrace diversity, inclusion and unity,” he said. “Racism cannot be fought with more racism.” 

Durden declined comment Sunday when contacted by Fox News.

She has said that she was “publicly lynched” by the school.

On Friday, she told the Star-Ledger that she has received a lot of support from school staff members and students, but compared her experience to a rape victim who is blamed for the crime, and a person who returns from war to a hostile environment.

“I thought it would be a safe place for me,” she told the paper, referring to the college. “I thought when I came home from war, I would be safe.” Instead she said she was fired.

Durden’s attorney, Leslie Farber, said she believes her client’s free speech rights were violated. “It is free speech guaranteed by the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution and New Jersey law,” Farber told Fox News Sunday.

The attorney said they were considering whether to take legal action in the matter.

  1. Reblogged this on kommonsentsjane and commented:

    Here is a “teacher” of young people at one of our colleges? How could this woman who preaches so much hate instead of trying to bring people together? The reason – when Obama cheated to be the leader of this great country – they followed his footsteps by spewing this Islamism hate that Obama preached for eight years. This is what happens – we listened to Obama’s hate for America for eight cheated years. No one in our government stood up to this heathen – why not – because someone would call them a racists. no guts, no glory.

  2. It’s even more significant that Essex County College’s President, Dr. Anthony Munroe, is black. Send him your thank you and support:

    • I just thank Dr. Munroe for his support. I always watch Tucker Carlson and I love his straightforward approach, while “others” sway answering he goes back stronger. I sure like that fellow, clean cut and smart, if at least some could learn from him tv would be be worth changing channels.

  3. Great point Dr. E. Thanks for letting us know. Are people — black, white, brown, yellow, purple or pink-poke-a-dot — finally realizing that the most racist people in the world or American Black’s. I learned this many years ago when I was renting an apartment and I had both an American Black (who was a college professor by the way) and a Nigerian (blacker than the Ace of spades) graduate student as neighbors. They literally hated each other. The Nigerian was very vocal about the fact that he thought American Blacks were spoiled pampered children. Very enlightening.

  4. Like ‘she’ said”, Boo Hoo Hoo!” It goes back to something my mother use to say. Put your BRAIN in gear before you put your mouth into motion!” Saves you a lot of unnecessary embarrassment whey you follow that like of THINKING! Dr. King was trying to stop ALL forms of racism not just white on black. BTW, where can you get one of these so-called white privilege cards? Would it be the same place a lot of black people get ‘their’ Race cards?????

  5. It could be argued that Durden is entitled to her First Amendment rights, but I would disagree, on two counts. First, many black people really do detest white people. As a teacher, black students told me that their “parents teach [them] race hatred.” This happened to me in two different situations in two different schools.
    So why do I have to defend race hatred—against anyone?
    Furthermore, Black Lives Matter is a terrorist or terrorist-sympathizing organization.

    Munroe was correct to fire Durden. Big Picture: We have got to get rid of all affirmative action—another divide-and-conquer tool of TPTB.

  7. she wasn’t jailed for her remarks because her speech was “protected”, but she was fired for her remarks because her job wasn’t “protected”…
    it is interesting how she is now turning the tables to make herself the victim for causing herself to get fired by spewing so much hatred and animosity.
    “I thought it would be a safe place for me,”….she should have ended it with ‘to spew my hate’.
    Upon reading the above quote, I thought a student was being quoted at first against her….she has lost her mind thinking that a public figure can be allowed to spew such hatred without repercussions.

  10. Durden is a prime example of the pervasive misconception built up over the last half century of predominantly Democratic leadership in our largest and most “progressive” population centers: they believe that “rights” and “entitlements” are synonyms.

  13. Why would her attorney even consider taking legal action, it was her own out of control mouth that got her into trouble.
    She has gotten away with statements like this the last eight years, but those days are over.

  15. Everybody – Black White Yellow or otherwise needs to stand up to the true racists like this woman. They don’t want equality. They want to be superior. And they don’t want to earn it. They want to be given it. And when they don’t get it they have a childish tantrum. Screw her and all the ones like her. They’re dragging me down because they’re too lazy to get up.

  17. This woman was expressly picked because she can’t articulate an argument. It was entirely staged.

  18. But in general I stopped going to BLM events because there is no structure or overarching principles. Also, if there are no official spokesmen anyone can come on tv and say anything.
