A tenured Lincoln University Pakistani American professor, Dr. Kaukab Siddique, has courted a firestorm of controversy after a slew of offensive posts from his Facebook account came to light in which he denounces the "homo lobby" and "dirty Jewish Zionist thugs," in addition to comparing Bill Cosby's sexual assault victims to "sluts."
Siddique, a 72-year-old professor in the Pennsylvania public university's Department of Languages and Literature, drew the ire of many for adamantly denying the Holocaust and has recently returned to the public spotlight for his comments about Bill Cosby and the women who have accused him of sexual assault, reported the Daily Beast
"Most non-Muslims behave like he did and he also had lots of money. ... What I can't understand is why it took so long for the violated women to come out against him," Siddique wrote July 8.
He offered five explanations, including that Cosby "paid them off," "Many women are sluts," "American women are slaves of rich men," "Random sex is quite acceptable in America," and "They don't have families like Muslims do who would take revenge for rape."
While discussing Josh Duggar's sexual abuse scandal last month, Siddique wrote that the "homo lobby" is "taking revenge for the Duggars' criticism of transgender and homo activity," the Daily Beast reported.
Lincoln University condemned Siddique's rantings, but said no action will be taken due to the professor's right to free speech, according to the Washington Times.
"His latest activities, like his earlier writings, statements and activities, are an insult to women and other groups singled out," the university said in a release to the Daily Beast. "Dr. Siddique's statements and assertions are his own, and they in no way represent the views of Lincoln University, its administration, faculty or students."
