Lefty Professor Who Speaks Out Against Income Inequality Gets Paid $205,400 for One Class

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On July 7, 2014 @ 10:12 am In The Point | 15 Comments

University of North Carolina School of Law’s Professor Gene Nichol is a real opponent of income inequality. That’s why he gets paid $205,400 to teach one class, plus more to run the Poverty Center at the school.

Nichol’s noble opposition to income inequality puts him in a class with other great academic class warriors like Elizabeth Warren, who was paid $350,000 by Harvard Law to teach a single course and Clinton’s former Labor Secretary turned inequality campaigner Robert Reich who pulls in $235,791 a year from a public university at UC-Berkeley to teach a course on “Wealth and Poverty” making him one of the highest paid state employees.

Speaking to the Progressive Democrats of North Carolina in 2010, Nichol ranted, “We haven’t fought back against the inequality I described, we’ve embraced it… And even if you could put aside the denial of justice and equality that represents, our inequality is becoming so pronounced that average workers no longer make enough money to fuel a consumer-based economic recovery. And I know this is hard to believe – but looking over this tremendously tilted field – the main thing Republicans can think of doing is to change the tax laws to further favor the very rich.”

Those darn Republicans.

Should we ask how much in taxes Working Class Hero Gene Nichol pays?

“Enough that he and his family can live comfortably in a Chapel Hill home with a tax value of more than $1 million. And when the Nicholses tire of the stress and bustle of North Carolina’s Triangle area, they can escape to their bungalow on the beach at Emerald Isle, valued by Carteret County at more than $512,000. “

Just another academic class warrior feeding off the labor of underclass adjuncts.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
