Conservative San Juan Capistrano council member Derek Reeve has already gotten himself into hot water for naming one of his dogs Mohammed, which Muslims find offensive, and gotten himself removed from the faculty at Concordia University due to several instances of alleged plagiarism for lifting whole passages of conservative text without attribution for a series of blog posts written on Patch.com.
Reeve is a lawyer by profession and is a part-time instructor at Saddleback Community College in Mission Viejo, which kept him on after Concordia let him go. So if you are a student in one of “Professor” Reeve’s classes at Saddleback, and you are of Middle Eastern ethnicity, please print this blog post out and bring it to the attention of college administrators; especially if you get a lousy grade. The screen capture was grabbed from Reeve’s private Facebook page and sent to us by a source.
Now Reeve is trying to show that SJC is a more tolerant community by inviting members of the public deliver the prayer before each council meeting. Certainly, he’ll invite members of the city’s Jewish and Muslim communities to do this as well. But he continues to demonstrate a pattern of bigotry towards Muslims and those of Middle Eastern background.
