While I do not in any way condone the topic of this guy's tweet, I must support his right to say it without retribution. Any attack on free speech must be contested. How many of us here hold controversial opinions? Simply because he supports the other side of the aisle, does not mean that he does not deserve the same protections that we all are afforded for our opinions. They are words, mere words.
Now, if he had gone into his classroom and said this to his students, that would be a different story. Just like if I came to work and walked around calling everyone a niggerfaggot all day. Obviously, I can't do that at work, but off the clock, away from work, I can say whatever the fuck I want. This guy is no different. He wasn't saying this in his classroom. He didn't tweet out from some public UT twitter. He was off the clock, away from work. He can say whatever the fuck he wants.

There's no such thing as "hate speech."
SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
MATAL, INTERIM DIRECTOR, UNITED STATES PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE v. TAM CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FEDERAL CIRCUIT No. 15–1293.
Argued January 18, 2017—Decided June 19, 2017
The Government has an interest in preventing speech expressing ideas that offend. And, as we have explained, that idea strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express “the thought that we hate.”
-Justice Samuel Alito
The First Amendment guards against laws “targeted at specific subject matter,” a form of speech suppression known as content based discrimination. ... This category includes a sub-type of laws that go further, aimed at the suppression of “particular views ... on a subject.” ... A law found to discriminate based on viewpoint is an “egregious form of content discrimination,” which is “presumptively unconstitutional.”
-Justice Anthony Kennedy

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...
Freedom of speech is an unalienable right. That means it is not to be separated, given away, or taken away. It is not capable of being repudiated. I don't have rights because the government says it's okay for me to. The government was created to protect my rights that already existed, and should they fail in this matter then
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. -Thomas Jefferson
