USC professor calls Republicans old white racists

It is now perfectly acceptable behavior to bash white people, Republicans, and conservatives. (Disclosure: I’m registered as a nonpartisan Independent, not a Republican.)
If a professor (or anyone) had called Democrats old black racists, this would be all over the mainstream media, which should more accurately be called the Ministry of Truth (see George Orwell’s prescient novel Nineteen Eighty-Four).
Darry Sragow
Oliver Darcy and Josiah Ryan report for Campus Reform, Apr 10, 2013, that a University of Southern California (USC) student secretly captured political science professor Darry Sragow misusing a fall semester 2012 political science class to deliver a sustained angry attack on Republicans, whom he characterizes as old white racist losers.
In the 15 min. video taken by Tyler Talgo, Sragow also conveys his approval of the illegal suppression of Republican votes.
A student asked the professor how to keep Republicans from voting. “You lose their information on the election in the mail. I mean there is lots [sic] of ways to do it,” Sragow answered, ungrammatically.
A teaching assistant (TA), who also appeared to work for the university, then seemed to suggest Black Panthers could be placed at polling stations to intimidate Republican voters. Rather than rebuking the TA, Sragow instead expressed his approval, saying “Yeah, yeah. You can do that.”

In a classic case of psychological projection, while endorsing illegal techniques to suppress Republican votes, Sragow accused the GOP of suppressing Democratic votes by supporting laws requiring voter I.D.: “Republicans are trying to prevent people of color and people of lower income from voting by requiring voter I.D.”
Sragow also made dozens of other derogatory remarks about Republicans and Republican politicians.
He attacked former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife Ann, saying “Romney tends to make shit up” and “Ann Romney to me looks like she’s out of 1955 and the women who are going to have to decide the race are women who have to work for a living … she looks like she is hanging out at the country club in Mad Men.”
Sragow singled out California Republicans for trashing, calling them stupid racist SOBs: “California Republicans I just showed you are 30 percent registration in this state because they are really stupid and racist. The Republican party in California as I say all the time on the record in print on the radio and on TV is the last vestige of angry old white people. Old white guys are stubborn sons of bitches.”
Neither a spokesperson for USC nor professor Sragow responded to multiple requests from Campus Reform seeking comment.
Watch this sorry excuse of a professor spew his hate speech for yourself:
Actually, Darry Sragow is the loser.
A search on USC’s Political Science Department’s website uncovered that Darry Sragow’s title, despite his advanced age, is a lowly non-tenured non-tenure-track Adjunct Assistant Professor:

Darry Sragow
Adjunct Assistant Professor of Political Science
Research Areas:
Phone: (213)892-2925
Office: VKC 327

“Tenure-track” refers to academic appointments that are not year-by-year but semi-permanent, with the expectation that the individual will come up for tenure in 4-6 years, depending on the institution. There are three rungs or steps in tenure-track appointments:

  • Assistant Professor (without tenure)
  • Associate Professor (usually with tenure)
  • Full Professor (achieved after demonstration of substantial scholarship and reputation; that is why some associate professors retire without having achieved full professorship)

“Assistant Professor” is the title of the lowest rung of professorship — typically of  young fresh-out-of-grad-schools Ph.D.s.  “Adjunct” means Sragow is hired only on a year-by-year basis. All of which means that Sragow was hired as a junior Assistant Professor in another college or university many years ago but was denied tenure there. So now he makes his living drifting from one university to another as an Adjunct.

In other words, Darry Sragow is a loser — a failure in academe.

Please help make sure that USC kicks this bigot out. I searched for the Chair of the USC Political Science Department, but cannot find who he/she is. To contact the department:

To contact USC’s President:

C. L. Max Nikias, President
Office of the President

I remember seeing Darry Sragow on television as a spokesman for the California Democrats on KTTV FOX 11 before the Presidential elections. This confirms what I suspected back then. Sragow is nothing more than a puppet for Governor Moonbeam, George Soros and the left wing extremists. Dummy Darry is the ultimate village idiot.

ask him why the democrats didnt want GOD,OR JERUSALEM,in their platform??????no the demo-rats are not smarter than a fifth grader! even a fifth grader respects GOD AND JERUSALEM.


Leftists are intellectually lazy. How hard is it to make the unfounded accusation that white Republicans are racists? Try it at a TEA Party convention and you’ll eat those words, but shout it thru a megaphone on a college campus and you only risk being licked to death by all the sycophants.
The students on campus typically have no knowledge of the fact that the Ku Klux Klan was (and is) a Democratic institution. They forget that the Emancipation Proclamation came from Lincoln’s party (Republican).


I agree with George Washington’s farewell address thoughts on political parties, but….the Emancipation Proclamation? That did nothing for slaves that were not in the few confederate border states actually named in it (including the Union states who still had their slaves) – and further would allow those southern border states to keep their slaves if they played nice and surrendered. This, in the midst of Lincoln’s illegal war declared without a sitting Congress. I don’t understand why the Republicans still deify Lincoln despite his abuses of power.


Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this interesting post, disclosing the idiocy of this individual. I agree, that this is a classic case of projection. His destructive and unprofessional communications are an indictment of his unethical and diabolical standards. Thank you for explaining his status to us in the educational arena. Dr. Eowyn is a full professor emerita, taught at universities for many years and was voted by her students as a superb, favorite professor. You can trust her analysis!

Is she an equestrian?


Good question, Dessage Rider. With a name like Eowyn, from Tolkien’s horse lords of Rohan, one might assume an appreciation of horses. If not that, then she is certainly one who upholds honor and valor.


Thanks joandarc. You help the readers to recognize Dr. Eowyn’s insight into the academic world.
