VIDEO: Professor tells students to violate U.S. laws, ‘destroy’ white democracy

A political science professor recently told students they should be “violating” the country’s laws to combat white supremacy, comments that were recorded and have since gone viral.

Diablo Valley College Professor Albert Ponce’s comments were couched in a guest lecture he gave for the school’s “Social Justice Lecture Series.” He is listed as a faculty member at the Northern California community college, located near San Francisco.

In his lecture, “White Supremacy in the U.S.,” Ponce discussed how slaves were controlled by laws in America’s history.

“And that’s the beauty of the law,” Ponce said. “If you can write it, you can convince all others to follow it, just like all of us do today — when we shouldn’t. Many of the laws existing, we should be violating those laws.”

Ponce, in his lecture, did not clarify what laws he meant, and went back to discussing what he contended is Thomas Jefferson’s belief that black people are inferior to whites, the video shows.

Ponce did not respond to The College Fix’s request for comment. Campus officials on Wednesday told The Fix they would provide a statement, but have yet to do so.

Although Ponce’s talk was innocuously filmed and posted on YouTube in late October by the Diablo Valley Inquirer, the student-run newspaper, the Oct. 26 lecture generated controversy over the last three weeks after snippets of it were highlighted by The Red Elephants, a conservative website and YouTube channel.

As part of his talk, Ponce stood before a photo of President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions with a portrait of President Andrew Jackson behind the politicians and told his audience: “It is fitting that a white supremacist of old and a white supremacist of today exist and sit — they’re smiling — in the White House.”

“So what can we do, what is to be done,” he asked.

Ponce went on to suggest efforts such as writing lawmakers are futile because “they are part of the system.” He continued that the solution lies in “practicing abolition.” The image behind him, in big red letters next to Trump, stated “the abolition of white democracy.”

“Abolition means we must destroy it, not reform it,” Ponce said. “No voting’s going to help. No writing your congressperson. We need to smash white supremacy at every institutional level in this country, beginning at the local space, at the state, at the federal system, and build something new. And that’s frightening. Because we don’t know what is to come.”

“There will be repression,” Ponce continued. “Yes, that always happens. But those who are willing, not only to take a knee, that’s just the beginning, that’s just a symbolic, peaceful gesture. It’s going to take a lot more work.”

Students were apparently offered extra credit to attend the presentation.

“I hope the extra credit is worth it,” Jackie Lorenz, director of community education, said in her opening remarks, the video shows.

The political science professor’s remarks also include him saying the U.S. Constitution is a “white man’s constitution” and calling Karl Marx “one of the most profound thinkers in the history of Western philosophy,” according to Campus Reform.

Ponce had launched the talk by saying: “So we begin with the fact that we exist in a white supremacist, patriarchal, heteronormative, capitalist system.”

As he discussed Jefferson, Ponce alleged the Constitutional framer raped “many” of his slaves and added “the state has socialized us into the state of glorifying” figures like Jefferson.

The lecture sparked outrage after The Red Elephants highlighted the remarks as part of its new campaign aimed at exposing “marxist” professors.

The Red Elephants reported that a Diablo Valley College student was the one who alerted it to Ponce’s October lecture. In an email from the student published by the conservative website in late December, the student alleges Ponce “grades students down and fails them if they don’t agree with him” and “is known to encourage violence and tells his students that it is necessary for change.”

In its own YouTube video highlighting portions of Ponce’s lecture, The Red Elephants’ Vincent James called the professor’s remarks “deeply radical rhetoric.”

The video of Ponce’s lecture has been viewed more than 263,000 times and shared more than 1,500 times after being posted on the campaign’s Facebook page in late December.

“The inspiration behind the creation was constantly seeing professors push anti-white male and anti-christian rhetoric in classrooms while praising Marxist and Post-modernist ideology,” The Red Elephants said of the new campaign in an email to The Fix.

On its Twitter account, The Red Elephants said it has received several submissions so far for its “Film Your Marxist Professors” campaign.

“You can either stand around, complain about how ‘the system is against you’ or you can actually stop whining and get out and do something,” the tweet said.

    Democracy is the worst form of gov’t. with the exception of all the others. Mr. Ponce why are there so many people “of color” that come to this country both legally and illegally? Is it because they hate white people? Name one brown or black majority country that’s more successful than the US? And remember most countries in the world don’t have a First Amendment which affords you protection to trash the gov’t. without fear of reprisal. You’re a bigoted phony.

      The question of course is who decides which laws to disobey? If one person decides different laws are unjust than the first is that person’s judgment any less valid than the first. Of course not. But I assume the “learned professor” would argue for an elite junta to make those decisions (and of course HE would be one of the chosen ones).

      This is nothing new or profound. It is merely a call for anarchy, if not outright sedition, with a generous helping of Communism thrown in the recipe. The “”professor” is really disappointed in the last election and is venting his rage.

      • EyesWideOpen66

        Total agreement.

      • rabidfox2

        And I’m not entirely sure that sedition IS protected by the First Amendment.

        • Albert8184

          You’re not sure? Geez…. of COURSE it isn’t protected. It’s explicitly forbidden by the constitution. Good Lord! How far we have fallen, especially the “conservatives”!

      • Albert8184

        The professor is committing a crime.

        • turn out the lights

          Yes – but no one will arrest him at the local, county, State or Federal Level.

          He is a Hispanic and as such he has immunity that no white man in his position would have.

          • Albert8184

            He is Hispanic… but more importantly, he’s a Left Winger. There are plenty of white professors advocating the exact same things this guy is advocating, and they aren’t touched either. BECAUSE, they’re Left Wingers. BUT… if this Hispanic professor were a CONSERVATIVE Hispanic preaching to his classes about the salvation of Christianity, in alleged violation of the Constitution….. then he would suddenly become a “white guy” and “a far-right extremist” in the same way George Zimmerman was “white” for the purposes of his trial. Likewise a conservative like Clarence Thomas or Ann Coulter receives NO protection from the establishment.

          • turn out the lights

            I get your point. The problem with all this is NOT one Hispanic or one non Hispanic. The point is – Hispanics in the millions who invaded the US illegaly, believe they have the right to invade.

            They see themselves as victims at the hands of those that oppose them, not only in individual basis of ‘like or dislike’ from one human to another, but on the FACT that the US Government has given Hispanic EEO and Diversity Preferences only intended for the descendents of Black US slaves.

            They believe themselves to be entitled, to a degree that no other migrants in the history of US Migration believe themselves so entitled.
            They are not migrants or refugees- they are US border invaders and they to be looked at in that descriptive.

          • Albert8184

            They believe themselves entitled… and aggrieved…. because subversive radicals like this professor are educating and brainwashing them toward critical mass for social upheaval. We should all be very disturbed that this stuff is going on in the classrooms – and more disturbed that our elected officials are doing NOTHING about it. The classroom is the front line in the war for the heart and soul of this nation…. we’re either going to win it or lose it based on how we handle this problem. So far…. not looking too good.

          • turn out the lights

            Then its already lost with both Black and Hispanic young people under the age of 25.

            The white man and white majorities are the enemy. We saw it in BLM, we saw it during the Campaign, we saw it with Bernie Sanders rallies. Its all there.

            The Democrat Party wants to make another 800,000 citizens with chain migration rights for their families. Once the Boomers are gone, and amnesty happens, there will no longer be a Unted States as we all know it.

          • Albert8184

            Right. And you’re remembering that half the white people are already morphed too, right.

    • costam63

      Tatu Vanhanen’s “The Limits of Democritization” shows very clearly that democracy isn’t for everyone.

      Highly recommended.

    • Kilroyishere

      He’s preaching sedition and inciting to riot, both are illegal. I doubt this professor will be imployed by the college much longer. The Democrats will find a comfy spot for him in one of their “nonprofit fund raising” think tanks.

      • Raptor Jesus

        are you kidding? He’ll be given tenure, a bonus and a big raise.

        • Randy Jordan

          Most of these idiot college professors whose rantings get published on social media get fired shortly afterwards.

            What “color” would you assign them? You used the word “colonized.” Are you aware of its meaning?

          • UnsinkingTheTitanic

            You moved the goalpost. You demanded colonisation and then shifted to occupy.

            You’re a dishonest person. You ought to sort yourself out.

            Be as pedantic as you will.

        • BozoerRebbe

          For the sake of argument, Japan was sorta kinda a colony of Britain or at least under their hegemony, kinda sorta. It wasn’t official like Hong Kong, but the British Navy made it clear who was in charge.

          • Old Chief

            Explain to me when that happened. Japan was very much under American control when MacArthur was the shogun, but tell me about that had a bad outcome.

          • Texas_Accountant

            I don’t believe that is true. However, I would appreciate a link if you have evidence.

            Most conquered areas were without formal government, at least a government recognized by the xenophobic invaders,who came to conquer and steal in the name of their God.

      • BozoerRebbe

        You think Europeans invented the concept of empire?

        “Brown” people, Arabs, Moors, and Turks, invaded and colonized much of Europe for centuries.

        By the way, Jews are related to Arabs. If Arabs are brown, in your racialist calculus can Jews be beige? I know that lefties now consider Jews to have white privilege but not too long ago, in Europe, Jews were said to be swarthy.

        • Old Chief

          The Jewish priestly caste are genetically / DNA closely related to the Kurds of northern Iraq/ iran/ southern Turkey…the area where Abram was said to come from.

    • Albert8184

      You’re insane if you think this guy’s speech in this arena is protected by the first amendment. It is not. He is in direct violation of the Constitution if he is truly in fact teaching this treasonous stuff. This is what irritates me most. Conservatives do as much to defend these radicals as their own comrades do, when they parrot this misinformation about “free speech”. He does NOT have the right to preach the overthrow of the government, lawlessness, or the abolition of the constitution. It is explicitly forbidden, and we need to be asking ourselves why we are not DEMANDING something be done about this. All the worse because he’s a taxpayer funded employee of the state.

  • TxMedRgr

    This professor would not last a minute if he uttered even a portion of this hate against any other race, but the White race. However, since he preaches against the “right” race, I guess it is okay with the university administration and the main stream press; not to mention many in the student body.

    • And is he not white? He ain’t black.

      • Texas_Accountant

        “Ponce” is Hispanic (e.g., Ponce de Leon). However, I agree. Prior to 1970, Hispanics were considered “white.”

        • SDN

          They still are. See George Zimmerman.

          • Emmanuel Goldstein

            Actually, Zimmerman is 25 percent black.

            He is still considered white.

            Only when they have conservative views. If they are left-leaning, then they are considered people of color…

    “Ponce discussed how slaves were controlled by laws in America’s history.”

    Those laws usually came from Democrats. Democrats who are still controlling Knee Grows through laws. Hillary’s self-professed “Friend and Mentor” was Sen. Robert Byrd, a KKK member and recruiter.

    • rabidfox2

      Nor was slavery established by American laws – it had been around a lot longer than that – it was endemic in the western hemisphere long before Columbus ever found it. Just about any agricultural culture that advanced beyond sustenance level developed slavery at some point regardless of the color of the population.

      • Hank Mansfield

        The Inca, Aztec and Maya were brutal on weaker populations, which is why the Spanish found it child’s play to find allies willing to help take them down.

        The Europeans at least made laws that even they had to follow in order to keep a baseline of civilization.

        Any college professor that fails to point this out is being dishonest through omission.

      • david smith

        Slavery has existed on the African continent for over 3000 years and still does, yet blacks self identify as African-American.

    Karl Marx “one of the most profound thinkers in the history of Western philosophy”?

    These people are monsters.

    “Although the Soviet Union [the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics] boasted that its economy was booming while the Capitalist world was experiencing the Great Depression, and its industrialization drive did succeed in rapidly creating an industrial infrastructure where there once had been none, the fact is that all this was done at exorbitant cost in human lives. Measures such as the violent expropriation of the harvest by the government, the forced resettlement and murder of the most successful peasants as counterrevolutionary elements, and the discovery of a source of cheap labor through the arrest of millions of innocent citizens led to countless millions of deaths from the worst man-made famine in human history and in the camps of the Gulag.”

    The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression is a book authored by several European academics and edited by Stéphane Courtois,[1] which describes a history of repressions, both political and civilian, by Communist states, including genocides, extrajudicial executions, deportations, and artificial famines.
    People killed under various communist regimes:
    -65 million in the People’s Republic of China

    -20 million in the Soviet Union

    -2 million in Cambodia

    -2 million in North Korea

    -1.7 million in Africa

    -1.5 million in Afghanistan

    -1 million in the Communist states of Eastern Europe

    -1 million in Vietnam[6][page needed]

    -150,000 in Latin America

    -10,000 deaths “resulting from actions of the international Communist movement and Communist parties not in power.”

    Another socialist nation’s success story:

    2/20/17 breitbart.com A poll released this week among Venezuelan nationals [Venezuela is ruled by socialists] found that 75 percent of Venezuelans reported losing “at least 19 pounds” in 2016, while 93 percent of Venezuelans said they do not have the money to secure three meals a day for themselves. The Living Conditions Survey, organized in part by three national universities, also found that 83 percent of Venezuelans were below the nation’s poverty line.

    11/10/17 breitbart.com The monthly minimum wage in the socialist country of Venezuela has crashed to under four dollars a month as hyperinflation continues to crush the country’s shattered economy.

    And yet they’re oil-rich:
    “Based on data from OPEC at the beginning of 2013 the highest proved oil reserves including non-conventional oil deposits are in Venezuela (20% of global reserves)” Wikipedia
    “They think only of subjecting mankind to the philanthropic tyranny of their own social inventions. Like Rousseau, they desire to force mankind docilely to bear this yoke of the public welfare that they have dreamed up in their own imaginations.” [French author/economist Frédéric Bastiat describing socialist politicians in Europe 165 years ago]

      because liberals are hypocrites. They are like Islam in that any position that they believe strengthens or advances their position is correct. That’s why liberal Jews support Palestinians against “Zionists” (Jews who support Israel) and why they support Islam . That’s also why feminists support Islam despite its suppression of women but won’t allow right-to-life women’s groups to associate or march with them. That’s also why they support illegal aliens but not the mothers of their murder victims. That’s why they pretend to want to protect women but want to force them to share restrooms, locker and shower facilities in fitness clubs and even elementary schools with males. To liberals, everything is either liberal(good) or not liberal (bad).

      • james

        Don’t confuse liberals with leftists. The two are not the same. Any true classical liberal has FAR more in common with libertarianism or the conservative platform than today’s regressive left.

        The leftist, feminist support of Islam was a MAJOR eye opener for me and was one of several things that pushed me to question many of my long held political views. You cannot be liberal and support such a regressive, un-free ideology.

    Yawn. Par for the course in the Academic Indoctrination Machines we used to call Universities back in the day when they were devoted to facts, logic, learning, impartial consideration of the data, thoughtful conclusions but which now are just centered on that crippled form of reasoning called ideological thinking and that parody of logical syllogism called slogans.

    Shoulda figured what was going to follow whenever Jackie Lorenz said she wanted to bring people together to have a talk, have a conversation.

    Usually when leftists say they want to have a conversation that means you are going to be bludgeoned over the head with their viewpoint and if you refuse to accept it, you’ll be labeled a Nazi, homophobe, xenophobe, racist, or whatever their slur du jour is that day.

  • WereTurtle

    I am not a legal scholar, but, this sounds an awful lot like “sedition”. It certainly meets the dictionary definition for sure.

    The problem this guy has with the U. S. Constitution is that it is a short document, written in plain English whose purpose is to protect citizens from the power of the state.

    If Marx was such a genius, why is it necessary for Marxist nations to disarm their citizens and build walls to keep their people from fleeing? If Professor Ponce wants to live in a communist state, he can go to Cuba. No one will stop him.

  • Kilroyishere

    Where’s the FBI? They wouldn’t allow this kind of talk in madrasahs, why do they allow it in our colleges and universities? They’re clearly trying to “radicalize” their students.

  • Dusty Thompson

    In a way he is correct. America’s “Controlled Substance Act of 1970” was created specifically because of International Treaties. Think about that for a second… INSANE

  • Michael Lang

    This vile dude no boubt has a widdle dick. He is compensating.

  • Chef

    This guy is a threat to our country….. And he’s teaching our children… Why is this treasonous behavior accepted in our schools?

    • Scott1M

      For the same reason campus young republicans fight constantly with administrations fit the right to pass out copies of the Constitution? You can’t restrict some speech, but allow other speech, and call yourself a supporter of the first amendment. I disagree with everything he’s saying here, but i also believe sunlight is the best disinfectant.

  • Blackgriffin

    Jail time. A lot of it. Then, when he gets out, kick him out of this country. Don’t care if he’s a citizen. He should lose his citizenship over this.

  • Robbins Mitchell

    Well,it’s going to be a real hoot…watching the good Prof and his loyal myrmidons destroy “whiteness” while they continue to speak my King’s English….the “whitest” language extant today


  • rbeccah

    If I were a student who followed Ponce’s advice and got arrested, I’d sue Albert Ponce for every dime he has or ever will have.

  • mark abrams

    Ponce is not a worker, his hands are not calloused. He is a professional intellectual and as such a part of the ruling capitalist patriarchy. He may speak against it and pretend to be part of the workers revolution. But he is nothing of the sort, he drives a capitalist produced car, dresses in clothing made by exploited workers and attempts to get others to act against the powers of oppression. He is a provocateur and a class enemy of the workers. Bundle him off to the basement of the Lubyanka.

  • Tom Tutone

    This is why I’m against all immigration, especially from non-white countries. Even though the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence was a gift to ALL men, other cultures don’t seem to be able to grasp the concept of limited power and government. They bring the same kind of mind set which often lead to the oppression in their own Countries.

    The White race is the most tolerant race in history.

  • bflat879

    What they fail to acknowledge is that it’s capitalism that allows people like this to have a job. If it weren’t for capitalism we wouldn’t have all of these places of higher learning. How many colleges and universities are there in the United States when compared to Russia, or Europe? Does anyone really believe this guy would have a job in Venezuela or Cuba? I think not.

    • Randy Jordan

      Capitalism gives him his job, and the constitution and democracy allows him to complain about the USA. He would get neither living under communism.

  • Chris Prestridge

    Ill bet an entire years pay that the Prof is a lead from behind agitator. One of those that calls for others to violate the law but runs like p????y when the ‘law’ makes its presence known. As for Marx, of course this idiot likes Kaaaarl, he makes a living mooching from the g’ment backed student loans his tier 93 school collects.

  • spunknik

    Encouraging people to break laws and revolt sounds like incitement to riot.

  • johnholliday

    I know! Let’s turn America into the sh*thole that is Mexico, eh, Poncie?

  • Chi_Huavara

    Likewise, we can keep whining about these idiot professors, but at the end of the day, we keep sending our children to these institutions to be “educated” by morons like this who think that a drunkard who rode around Europe on a donkey is “one of the most profound thinkers in the history of Western philosophy.”

  • Randy Jordan

    This guy thinks that America is a white supremacist democracy? Did he forget that we just had a black president for eight years?

    • james

      And a lousy one at that.

      Trump has done more for us in the black community in a year than Obama did in 8. Black unemployment is the lowest it’s been in decades.

  • mreed12

    One must assume that this man is being paid with money from the “White Supremacist” taxpayers, via the “White Supremacist” politicians and their “White Supremacist” institutions, yes? So he’s a rank hypocrite from the start. And he says nothing about what he, personally, is willing to do/sacrifice for the collective and its advancement, so he’s a coward as well. This pretty much describes all like him – Coward & Hypocrite – and that’s what these peoples’ “leadership” amounts to, and why it will never be more than sanctimonious lecturing to his fellow cowards and hypocrites.

  • Zefal

    These people flock to our racist country. They won’t leave even though they are free to. They think other countries are so wonderful but they don’t flock there. Hmm?

    You let this guy’s ancestors in and this is how you are repaid

    These are the people who “Brainwash” our youth. They should be removed and identified as pure Marxists.

    “…the U.S. Constitution is a “white man’s constitution” and calling Karl Marx “one of the most profound thinkers in the history of Western philosophy,”…”
    Psst! No one tell him that Karl Marx is white!

    “Deeply radical”? Treasonous is more like it. The guy needs to hang.

  • PhysicsWon

    All Marxists who remain Marxists after the age of 25 are idiots who seem unable to learn from the the evidence of the last 100 years since the Bolshevik Revolution. Every country in which Marxists have taken power has suffered horribly from economic insanity and poverty, tyranny, and arbitrary violence far, far worse than any similar ills in non-Marxist states. If you are young, and don’t know much yet, or if you lived before the evidence was clear, you can be excused for being a Marxist. Now there is no excuse for any adult. Either you are an idiot and/or you are just a horrible person who likes the idea of tyranny to “get even” with those you hate.

  • RCPreader

    Jefferson was NOT a “Constitutional framer.”

    The author should know that.

    But, this highlights the question of what on Earth Jefferson has to do with the speaker’s point.

  • lospicaros

    The arrogance of these a-holes is thinking everyone in that room agrees with them.

      If it wasn’t for the extra credit, the room would probably be empty.

    We need Mexico’s immigration policies because Fairness.

  • Insufficiently Sensitive

    Professor Ponce thinks he’s scored huge points by pointing to Thomas Jefferson as taking advantage of his black slaves to breed babies.

    Yet he blathers straight into his own trap by idolizing Karl Marx, a privileged white male who took advantage of his housemaid to breed babies, and sets Marx up as the role model.

    If leftists didn’t have double standards, they’d not have any standards at all.

    Karl Marx was not a genius as socialism and communism has proven time and time again. Just today I was reading a speech by a Vietnamese immigrant who came to the USA to escape communism when he was 13 years ago. According to him, the only difference between socialism and communism is that communism has an AK-47 to the head.

    The professor is demonstrating how racist he truly is by attacking a group of Americans based on their skin color.

  • Albert8184

    This guy isn’t a kook in the Leftist world. He’s average. He’s mainstream. He represents the face of the Left in reality, behind all the saccharin watered down images comprising the propaganda of the media.

  • Fred

    Why are our schools constantly cramming this down kids throats?That’s the way of thinking 200 years ago. Why can’t we just be allowed to progress?!

  • ata777

    College kids and this idiot professor might want to acquaint themselves with the definition of the word “sedition.”

  • Steve

    I grew up in the Bay Area and the only people who went to DVCC were the same people that had to take summer school just to eke out a high school diploma.
    I would have loved to have seen one of the students take him up on the challenge to break the laws by walking up and stealing his laptop. I’m guessing his attitude might change just a smidge.

  • Michael Quinlan

    By this professor’s own words; “students they should be “violating” the country’s laws”, then killing him should be legal. Words have meaning. I’ll be waiting for one of students to take him seriously.

  • james

    Im black and quite appreciative to live in a free society, regardless the skin color of the people who crafted it…

    Let the regressive left continue this assault on the straight white man. All it’s doing is playing right into Donald Trump’s hand, yet again. The left never learns. This coming from someone who was a registered democrat for 14 years…Who will never again vote for a party that embraces so many evil ideologies and pursues such regressive actions. The Regressive Left has become everything that moderate liberals and centrists hated about the far Religious right a decade ago, only worse.
