The Republican-hating Drake professor who said all Republicans must suffer was back on social media earlier this month.

Drake students were running for student senate and Beth Younger was on the live chat criticizing student candidates.

She targeted a conservative student, Jared Poortinga.

“Jared, you say you want to ‘respect’ each other. How does that fit in with your targeted harassment of faculty you see as liberal?” Younger asked.

Younger, who calls herself a “vegetarian, feminist, anti-racist academic, chihuahua hoarder” on Facebook, still must believe she is some sort of victim after all of the hate she directed toward students with Republican beliefs.

Poortinga eventually lost. The sophomore was running for student senate president.

Perhaps Younger really disliked Poortinga for his top platform point — ensuring free speech on campus.
