Some people can take political adversity, some people cannot. I mean, seriously cannot take the Trump era at all. The reactions are extreme. The antics are outrageous—and all of this is coming from the Left. Katie wrote about Georgetown Professor Christine Fair, who went on an unhinged tirade on Twitter calling for supporters of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to be murdered and castrated.
“Look at thus chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist's arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes,” she tweeted. Of course, there was a strong reaction, which Fair responded that she was a victim of sexual abuse. That’s tragic, but in no way does that give you a license to trot out death threats to people with whom you have disagreements. Twitchy captured the responses to this tweet:
I will NOT moderate my rage for YOUR convenience. As a VICTIM of assault.. I along with millions of women…watch white males gather around a belligerent predator defending his and their privilege. I WILL use words that will make you as I uncomfortable as I am.
Katie noted that Georgetown responded by saying:
The views of faculty members expressed in their private capacities are their own and not the views of the University. Our policy does not prohibit speech based on the person presenting ideas or the content of those ideas, even when those ideas may be difficult, controversial or objectionable. While faculty members may exercise freedom of speech, we expect that their classrooms and interaction with students be free of bias and geared toward thoughtful, respectful dialogue.”
Is this free speech or is this a veiled death threat to members of Congress? We already had a left wing nut try and assassinate Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) last year. I give a lot of latitude on speech, even views that I strongly disagree with or find absolutely abhorrent. Apparently, Twitter decided that she crossed the line because her account has been suspended. She’ll probably be reinstated in the near future. Still, let the lesson sand: rage tweeting can get you into serious trouble…unless you work in a position and get put on the tenure track, right?
Lady needs to cool down.
