Nitzschean Values on the March Again.

Michelle Malkin picks up on this story coming from one of our fine universities. The exact university is Brooklyn College and the prof's name is Timothy Shortwell.

Michelle quotes the NY Daily News:
He also called himself and others who share his beliefs "Übermenschen," a reference to German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche's idea of the perfect person, or "superman."

Remember another philosophy that borrowed heavily from Nitzsche? It too had the idea of a superman or more specifically a superrace? Yes, you are right it was Adolf Hitler's Nazism. Hitler too disdained religion.
