The college issued a statement which reads in part:

It is Kirkwood leadership’s assessment that the attention this matter has garnered has the potential to create an environment that is disruptive to our mission. Our decision to remove Mr. Klinzman from the classroom has nothing to do with the substance of his views or his right to express them. Rather, our decision is based solely on our commitment to fostering a safe learning environment for our students, faculty and staff.

I also want to be clear that Kirkwood Community College fully supports Mr. Klinzman’s right to articulate his views in whatever forum he chooses. This action does not in any way prevent him from continuing to engage in the expression of free speech. However, when the expression of views by him or any member of our community is perceived as placing public safety in jeopardy, or hampers our ability to deliver on our mission, we will always do what is necessary in service to our students’ pursuit of a higher education.

With that said, we want you to be aware of the actions we’re taking to ensure that when students arrive on campus on Monday morning, they are able to fully focus on their education.

• Our security team will have a visible presence throughout campus on Monday morning and going forward. As always, members of the Cedar Rapids Police Department will be on campus as well.

• Campus security and members of the Cedar Rapids Police Department are working together to develop and implement a safety plan. We are grateful for the CRPD’s ongoing support and assistance.



This is how bad it’s getting on college campuses around the country. At least this college is trying to nip it in the bud by bringing law enforcement to make the campus safe again. It sounds like they are scared of the backlash. 


My question is, who indoctrinated him?  This isn’t an independent phenomenon, who paid him to radicalize students?


Violence is never the answer to any of societies problem. Voting is your choice to pick leaders.
