Muhlenberg College Professor Jeff Pooley Enables Forum for Hate Speech & Libel

March 2010 marked the four year anniversary of the death of our daughter, Sheena.

For the entire month of March 2010, Allentown City Council Vice President and Cedar Crest College Ethics Professor W. Michael Donovan allowed and encouraged a hate speech and libel forum against Sheena's family at his blog, "Inclusion by Michael Donovan."

Among the hundreds of sadistically cruel and offensive comments published by Michael Donovan at his blog were these ...

Dear Villa,

Go crawl back in your hole. You have done nothing good for Allentown. I'll repeat that: you have done nothing good for Allentown. The Chen Arts Group has been a positive and is only successful b/c the people there ignore you and your crazy wife.

necrophilia is a mental illness where patients have odd attitudes towards the dead. In Allentown we have a man who pimps a dead woman’s memory to extort pity for himself. The first ever case of NECROVILLIA. April 3, 2010 5:28 PM

Well, wee willie, what is the good of playing your "grieving father role" if you can't do it in public?

Why don't you drag your dumb ass and your vibrator down to City Council tonight and speak at courtesy of the floor?

I would show up to watch. You could do your Bill/Willa routine

Are you a man or a woman? I know I'm confused. You better leave the robot at home, it would be embarassing if her chip blew a circuit during your presentation. March 17, 2010 10:51 AM

I think it is entirely appropriate for citizens to petition the sponsors of Mayfair to remove Burqa Bill and the Villains from the acts at Mayfair.

On April 30, 2010, we filed a complaint against Michael Donovan with the Allentown Ethics Board.

On June 2, 2010, the Allentown Ethics Board concluded that Michael Donovan had not violated any of Allentown's ethics codes-- watch TV coverage by 69 News.

On June 3, 2010, and June 5, 2010, Morning Call reporters Jarrett Renshaw and Bill White both quoted several of the perpetrator participants in Donovan's hate speech and libel forum against the Villas as testimonial character witnesses for Donovan-- not mentioning the vile nature of the commentary that was published at the blog of their fellow Morning Call blogger Michael Donovan. Morning Call reporter/columnist Bill White is also an adjunct professor of journalism at Lehigh University in Bethlehem PA.

In mid-June 2010, after several 69 News-televised confrontations at Allentown City Council, Michael Donovan finally deleted all of his anti-Villas blog filth but he resolutely refused to apologize to the Villa family.

In December 2010, Michael Donovan re-activated the version of his blog that had contained all the previously deleted material-- that is, Donovan put everything back up on the internet.

Also in December 2010, Muhlenberg College media and communication professor Jeff Pooley PhD activated a right sidebar link at his blog, "Allentown Afterthoughts," to Donovan's blog, "Inclusion by Michael Donovan," thus enabling his blog readers easy access to Michael Donovan's re-activated hate speech and libel forum against the Villa family.

Last summer, and into autumn, communicating w/ Cedar Crest College Provost Betty Powell PhD, we tried politely, and repeatedly, to secure an in-person meeting w/ Cedar Crest College President Carmen Twillie Ambar to discuss the shameful, and ongoing, Michael Donovan cyber ethics debacle w/ her. But lawyers for Cedar Crest College told us that no one from the college was interested in meeting with us ... and that no disciplinary action would be taken against Cedar Crest College ethics professor W. Michael Donovan.

Currently, polite outreaches to Wally Trimble, Chair of the Journalism Department at Lehigh University, Lehigh University Provost Patrick V. Farrell, and President Peyton R. Helm at Muhlenberg College are being similarly ignored.

We give area college professors Michael Donovan ...

an F.

And an F.U.

We also believe that Cedar Crest College, Lehigh University, and Muhlenberg College should give their respective professors Donovan, White, and Pooley the boot.

UpDate: Pooley changes Donovan link; no apology. Readers, we interpret Muhlenberg College President Peyton R. Helm's silence on this disturbing issue, and his ignoring of our polite e-requests to meet w/ him to mean that President Helm approves of and probably enjoys Professor Pooley's, Professor Donovan's, and Professor White's reprehensible, un-ethical, and vile actions against the Villa family. Same goes for Cedar Crest College President Carmen Twillie Ambar and Lehigh University President Alice P. Gast. All three college presidents obviously approve of Morning Call-affiliated cyber bullying cruelty and sadistic emotional torture perpetrated against an already grief-stricken and upstanding Allentown family. Academia has really changed.
