A college math professor named Peter Rosnick is in hot water after one of his students at Mount Holyoke College, an all-female college in Massachusetts, videotaped him telling the class who to vote for on Election Day. In his commentary, he subtly hints at students to vote for Hillary Clinton. His dialogue can be read below:
“I’m not gonna tell you who to vote for, but vote for someone who thinks women are full and capable and responsible and intelligent beings who should not be the object of, um, should not be objectified. I am in the very unusual situation where my father was an immigrant and my children are immigrants. Vote for whoever you want, but vote for somebody who respects the fact that this is a country built on immigrants — that this is a country that … wouldn’t be what it is if it wasn’t for bringing immigrants into our nation and respecting them and respecting what they bring to our country. I’m not gonna tell you who to vote for,” he continued as his students began giggling, clearly getting what he was up to, “but vote for someone who understands that the goal … in a caring society is to hold people together not to pull people apart. I’m kinda being cute about it, but I’m not feeling this is funny. This is the most serious election … in 48 years that I’ve been voting, so yeah — do the math, right?”
The anonymous student who took the video gave the footage to College Fix, and then spoke to their correspondents regarding the incident: “I find it highly inappropriate for a math teacher to use my class time to try to tell me who to vote for.”
Reportedly as well, the adjunct professor has voiced his political outlook before on his students numerous times, such as giving math problems regarding man-made climate change. The video of his lecture can be viewed below:
