Obviously it would be racist to put her on unpaid leave. Can’t wait for the rallies demanding her immediate reinstatement and promotion.

The controversial professor at ultra-liberal Oberlin College whosparked a national outcry after posting anti-Semitic rants and bizarre 9/11 conspiracy theories has been booted from the classroom, the school said Wednesday.

Joy Karega, an associate professor of rhetoric and composition, was put on paid leave while prestigious Oberlin College considers her future, according to a statement from university president Martin Krislov obtained by The Post.

How ironic her own rhetoric got her in this mess.

School administrators had reluctantly backed Karega, citing academic freedom concerns, when her conspiratorial, anti-Semitic social media rants were first reported.

“I am committed to continuing and completing an equitable review process,” Krislov wrote in an email to students, staff and alumni.

“While the process is pending, Professor Karega is on paid leave and will not be teaching at Oberlin. Arrangements are being made to cover her teaching and advising responsibilities.”

“In recognition of the sensitivity of this continuing review process and the privacy of the individuals involved, we will have no other comment until the conclusion of the process,” Krislov said.

She seems really charming.
