Fire Jamie Newman from Purdue University

This petition had 203 supporters


Last week Jamie Newman, a staff member of Purdue University, went on an online rampage via Facebook against the Purdue Students for Life, verbally attacking and threatening individuals he disagreed with. Besides the cyber-bullying and ruthless name calling, he actually threatened to rape the female family members of an individual.

This sort of conduct is disappointing and shameful. As an alum of this great institution, I call upon Mitch Daniels to immediately terminate Jamie Newman's employment and all ties he has with the university. It is unfathomable that someone in his position can maintain a presence on a university that prides itself on welcoming new ideas and encouraging thoughtful discussions.

While some of the 70+ posts have since been deleted, I have included several screen shots as proof of what he said. Among other things, here is a brief list of things he called the very students that Purdue University seeks to serve: vile, racist, incapable, epically clueless, creepy, profoundly malicious, embarrassingly dumb, simply evil, idiots, morons, despicable demagogues, credulous dupe, beyond the reach of reason, phony, sanctimonious white ninnies, beyond the reach of rational argument and dippy white people.

Please sign my petition to have Jamie Newman removed from the campus I used to call home. We need to make sure current and future students can learn and interact with each other in a safe and encouraging environment.
