Government Shutdown: Georgetown Offers Counseling for Students Affected

Georgetown University, located in Washington D.C., is again pandering to far left political agendas on campus. 

In an email to students Georgetown, is offering counseling to those affected by the government shutdown and impacted by federal closures. 

In an email obtained by The College Fix, GU Associate Vice President for Federal Government Relations Katy Button reminded the campus community that the university’s Faculty & Staff Assistance Program includes “free [and] confidential counseling,” and is available to those impacted by the federal closures. 

A copy of the email sent out by Georgetown University, obtained by The College Fix: 

I’m writing to share with you some implications for our University community following the government shutdown that began early Saturday morning. As many of you know, the federal government is the largest employer in the Washington, D.C. region and this disruption may have meaningful consequences for our students, faculty and staff, as well as their families and friends.

Unlike past shutdowns, however, this one is more limited in scope. Three-quarters of all government agencies are funded for the entire 2018-19 fiscal year—including the Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services (which funds research entities like the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation)—so the main sources of University research and financial aid funding will not be impacted.

Among the agencies affected by the shutdown are the Department of State and the Department of the Interior, which may lead to some impact for our community. International students seeking visas (either new ones for the spring semester or students looking to renew their visas over the break) may be impacted. The Office of Global Services is working with admitting academic departments to adjust start dates for these students, if needed.

Should you have a family member impacted by the shutdown (furloughed or working without pay) over a sustained period of time, there are a number of resources to assist you in the New Year. Georgetown University’s Faculty & Staff Assistance Program provides free, confidential counseling, consultation and educational services to faculty, staff and their immediate family members[.]

But this isn't even the tip of the iceberg regarding the problems at Georgetown University. I shall take you down memory lane. 

During the Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearing Christine Fair, a Georgetown professor, wrote on Twitter that Republican senators should die and then be fed to pigs for supporting Judge Kavanaugh. After the story went viral, Georgetown sent her on a glorified vacation overseas. 

Before that story garnered national attention, I reported Professor Fair's remarks on "Kreepy Kavanaugh." 

When I reached out for comment on the story, Fair responded by viciously writing falsehoods about me and accused me of "bullying" her. She decided to go a step further by launching a smear campaign.  

Fast forward a few months when I reached out for comment on another story, after Professor Fair called Fox News "Terrorists." In response, she told me "[you] and your ilk have literal blood on your hands."

"How you sleep at night baffles me. You’re young. There is no reason to follow this career trajectory," Fair continued. 

She's also been known for doxxing those she disagrees with and was recently removed from the Tumblr social media platform.

What did Georgetown do? Absolutely nothing.

Here's a recent tweet from Fair: 

An interesting take on Professor Fair: 

It is clear Georgetown University has serious problems outside of coddling students over a partial government shutdown. Ms. Fair is one of them.
