UPDATE: The University of Central Florida responded with the following statement: "Dr. Matusitz expressed his opinion, which is his right. He was not speaking on behalf of the university and we do not endorse his views."
I know this man. I appeared with Dr. Jonathon Matusitz at the Liberty Counsel Conference in April. He is an expert in his field of study. I was most impressed with the depth and breadth of his knowledge.
Dr. Jonathan Matusitz (Ph.D., University of Oklahoma, 2006) is currently a tenured associate professor in the Nicholson School of Communication at the University of Central Florida (UCF). He studies globalization, culture, terrorism and health communication. On top of having 95 academic publications and over 100 conference presentations, he taught at a NATO-affiliated military base in Belgium in 2010. Originally from Belgium himself, he moved to the United States in 2000. In 2012, he was honored with a prestigious teaching award by the College of Sciences at UCF.
In 2011, Dr. Matusitz’s research was cited by the U.S. Supreme Court. His most recent book, Terrorism & Communication: A Critical Introduction, was published in 2012 by SAGE. His research methodologies include qualitative interviewing, content analysis, semiotics and theoretical analysis.
Dr. Matusitz has taught the following courses at UCF: Terrorism and Communication (COM 4416), Intercultural Communication (COM 4461), Conflict Management (COM 4462), Group Dynamics (SPC 4426), Nonverbal Communication (SPC 4331), Organizational Communication (COM 3120), Communication and Human Relations (COM 3011), Communication Research Methods (COM 3311), Health Communication (COM 6025), and Honors Fundamentals of Oral Communication (SPC 1600).
Terrorist groups like CAIR are now steamrolling over people, freedom, and our Constitution. This coalition of destroyers has grown exponentially under the Obama regime. Once they were on the margins of society, where they belong. But now, because of a philo-jihadist president and mainstream media sanction, they have risen to a power like that of the SS and SA in prewar Nazi Germany. I urge freedom lovers (Atlas readers) to support truth tellers like Dr. Jonathon Matusitz.
This is a witchhunt, and groups like Hamas-CAIR are murdering people's livelhood and ability to get work -- for blasphemy -- speaking the truth about jihad and sharia. Silence about Islam is essential to their stealth agenda.
CAIR-FL Seeks Review of UCF Courses Taught by Anti-Islam Prof
Hamas-CAIR press release:
TAMPA, Fla., June 17, 2013 — /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-FL), along with other community organizations, announced today that it has called on the University of Central Florida (UCF) to review the accuracy and objectivity of information offered to students in courses taught by Dr. Jonathon Matusitz.
CAIR-FL says Matusitz, an associate professor in the UCF Nicholson School of Communication, is "membership director" for the anti-Muslim hate group ACT! for America and bizarrely claims Germany will "become an Islamic republic by 2050."
