Prof Sued for Forcing Students to Pay $99 to Join Radical Left-Wing Group

A professor from Michigan State University who is accused of forcing her students to buy a $99 subscription, then using the money to give to Planned Parenthood and buy an RV, is being sued.

A report from the Daily Mail confirms two MSU students are suing Amy Wisner, a former professor at the school.

She was under investigation earlier, and the report explains Wisner made the students pay $99 to join her radical left-wing group.

According to court documentation, Wisner allegedly solicited funds from around 600 students and donated money to Planned Parenthood, and also wanted to use some to buy an RV.

The case is being brought by the ADF on behalf of students Nolan Radomski and Nathan Barbieri.

The case charges that while students can learn about contrasting opinions, they believe being told to fund organizations that violate their beliefs crosses the line.

The school, after the scandal broke, dismissed Wisner.

Wisner had, before it was deleted, claimed in a posting on Facebook that her group, The Rebel Community, was a "safe place to coordinate our efforts to burn everything to the f------ ground."

The legal action charges that Wisner claimed she would not benefit personally from the fees they paid, which amounted to about $60,000. But the report said it later emerged she used some of those funds for an RV.

She said that project was focused on her goal "to sit around kitchen tables and campfires facilitating conversations about important social issues and igniting action at the local level,"

Wisner claimed on social media just weeks ago MSU "did not want [her] and my guest lecturers to teach diversity, equity, and inclusion to students in the core business communication class," the report said.

Wisner then, on social media, claimed to be battling the "state of our education system, the daily threat of gun violence, overt racism, sexism, antisemitism, xenophobia, ableism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of bullying."

The filing states, however, the students "do not wish to financially support the speech of others that contradicts their views, and they do not wish to become members of groups organized for the purpose of promoting messages that contradict their views."

The case complains of the "forced financial contributions" demanded by Wisner.

"University professors can’t force students to finance and support political advocacy groups that express messages they disagree with. Nathan and Nolan simply want to get a business degree without being compelled to pay membership fees that will be donated to Planned Parenthood or support speech that directly contradicts their religious beliefs," the ADF said in a statement.

The Daily Caller News Foundation had reported weeks ago that Wisner's actions were being reviewed.

A separate legal team already said it was seeking refunds for the students.
