Guest Post By: Doug Beatty On May 1 2013 Delaware Politics administrator Don Ayotte graciously allowed me to enter a guest post on the plight of my colleague, Dr. Jahi Issa. Interestingly enough, a vociferous anonymous poster began making comments on that post accusing Dr. Issa of racism and forwarding the position that Dr. Issa should have been arrested by campus police and fired for being a “black supremacist” and “racism” and “preaching exclusion” among other perceived crimes of thought. When this anonymous poster had their card pulled for lying, they simply changed to another anonymous name and kept up with the same lies. This person showed inside knowledge of the case and Delaware State University and academia in general, but they refused to identify themselves or agenda. When I informed this poster that I would find out who they were a general outcry from said poster ensued on May 6. On May 8, Steve Newton of Delawarelibertarian posted an entry entitled “Dead Blog Walking” and attacked Delaware Politics for threatening and outing commenters and accused Delaware Politics of being akin to a police state. A DelawareLiberal writer started the discussion thread congratulating Steve for his decision to remove Delaware Politics from his blogroll thus depriving Delaware Politics of tens of hits every year. I joined in and called Dr. Newton on his duplicity ( that’s right, the man is piled high and deep and is a professor as well ). Delaware Liberal is the undisputed heavy weight champ of stifling opposing voices on their blog and I have screenshots to prove it. They also out people when they feel like it and I posted an example. . This was very confusing, why would a libertarian call one blog out for something and approve of another blog that does even worse? The answer my friend was blowing in the wind. Imagine my surprise when I attended a Professional Employee Relations Board hearing in support of Dr. Issa and saw Dr. Newton ( Steve Newton ) seated with the AAUP attorneys. Steve Newton drew an EEOC complaint from Dr. Issa in 2011. Issa alleges that Newton walked into his office in 2008 and told Dr. Issa that he was ‘too black’ and he’d better get with the program or he would be fired. When Dr. Issa was roughed up and arrested for exercising his first amendment rights the American Association of University Professors did nothing to stop him from being suspended and fired. Steve Newton was the AAUP president for DSU at the time. So now it all makes sense. Did Steve Newton attack Delaware Politics because Don Ayotte allowed a guest post in support of Dr. Issa? This is the Libertarian Party State Secretary? Sounds more like a Dead Party Talking to me.
