The New Jersey Institute of Technology is in the town DLJ was friggin’ born in! Its mayor is the son of revolutionary poet Amiri Baraka. He wasn’t going to be around long!
NEWARK, NJ – Jason Reza Jorjani, the university lecturer who worked closely, albeit briefly with White supremacist Richard Spencer, has been suspended following remarks made in a video where he waxes poetic about the return of concentration camps and how Adolf Hitler will be seen as a “great European leader”.
According to NJ.com, the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) released a statement Monday evening announcing Jorjani had been placed on administrative leave pending the conclusion of a review. “NJIT is a university that draws great strength from the diversity of its campus community, and statements made by Mr. Jorjani in a video published by ‘The New York Times’ are antithetical to our institution’s core values,” the statement read.
Jorjani, who worked in the Humanities Dept. and says that his words were taken out of context, took over the Editor-in-Chief position last year at the neo-Fascist Arktos Media, and then started the Altright Corporation earlier this year with National Policy Institute President Richard Spencer and Swedish mining executive Daniel Friburg established to build coordination among so-called “alt-right” groups globally. He left both just after the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, VA, which he did not attend because he was in Los Angeles at a meeting that formed an Iranian neo-Fascist organization called Jebheyé Irângarâyân, which is Persian for Iranist Front. Both Spencer and Friburg publicly denounced Jorjani as a charlatan.
“Jason has always strongly identified with what he calls the Iranian Renaissance movement,” Spencer wrote in a statement. “Jason informed us that, after Charlottesville, he had been given an ultimatum: leave the Alt-Right or leave the Iranian resistance. It reveals much that Jason preferred the interests of a Middle Eastern country over a movement that represents the identities of White people in America and Europe.”
