A former college professor who was fired after threatening a reporter with a machete and wrecking a table containing pro-life materials appears to have landed a new teaching job, according to a New York private art college website.

Shellyne Rodriguez is listed as an adjunct professor at The Cooper Union in New York, and a college course catalog appears to show a sculpture class with a person named S Rodriguez for this fall semester. Rodriguez, a former adjunct assistant professor at Hunter College, previously made headlines after threatening a New York Post reporter with a machete in May and wrecking a pro-life display, calling it “[bleeping] propaganda.”

Rodriguez was charged with harassment and menacing after the machete incident, which occurred after Post reporter Reuven Fenton and his photographer knocked on her apartment door to get comment on a viral video featuring the professor. After threatening Fenton, Rodriguez followed him and the photographer onto the street with the machete and allegedly kicked Fenton in the shins. She also allegedly told the Post employees to “get the [bleep] off the block.”

The viral video being investigated by the Post reporter showed the professor wrecking a Students for Life of America display table by flipping an object and pushing papers off the table in May, saying “you’re not educating shit” and “this is [bleeping] propaganda.”

The Cooper Union and Rodriguez did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Believe it or not, today’s high priests of climate-change apocalypse are correct in predicting that in just a few short years, the earth will become miserable, wretched and almost uninhabitable by human beings. But the grim future they envision won’t come about because of “catastrophic climate change,” but rather, because of the implementation of their completely insane and truly catastrophic agenda.

As Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore recently admitted, “If they actually achieve Net Zero, at least 50% of the population would die of hunger and disease.” Likewise, writes energy expert and author Alex Epstein: “Today’s proposed policies to rapidly eliminate fossil fuel use would, if fully implemented, have truly apocalyptic consequences – making the world an impoverished, dangerous, and miserable place for most people.”

Question: When the scientific case for global warming apocalypse consists primarily of a 1-degree Celsius rise in temperature over more than 130 years, what explains the obsession with an imminent, climate-caused end of the world?

Although many groups have been drawn into the Climate Change Cult – from the news media (which has warned of climate catastrophe, either global warming or a “new ice age,” for over a century!), to innocent school kids indoctrinated by hysterical leftist teachers, to liberal Democrats who claim “climate change” will destroy the earth in a few years – the REAL villains are the national and global elites who KNOW the apocalyptic global warming religion is just a cruel hoax, but promote and exploit it as a means of accomplishing their ultimate goal: Transforming and ruling the world.

The heart and soul of today’s bizarre, pagan climate-change religion, and the global elites’ strategies for using it to rule all of mankind, is powerfully exposed and illuminated in the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, an issue titled “CULT OF THE CLIMATE APOCALYPSE: The elites’ breathtaking strategy for ruling the world.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
