Rhode Island prof demands NRA chief’s “head on a stick”
College Insurrection ^ | 18 Dec 2012 | College Insurrection

...Then declares himself a Twitter martyr because people quoted what he said

Erik Loomis is an assistant professor of American history at the University of Rhode Island. He also blogs at “Lawyers Guns and Money” blog.

In reaction to the murders in Connecticut, Loomis tweeted that he had never been so angry except maybe for the invasion of Iraq (I guess 9/11 was chopped liver to him), and that he wanted the NRA chief’s “head on a stick”:

It’s never pretty when the curtain of the loony left is drawn back for a full frontal view.

Yeah, right. I’d bet this same professor would wring his hands over whether Major Hassan could keep his beard.

Wonder if Prof.Erik Loomis is willing to confront the NRA in single combat man to man. Winner can do what he wants with the head of the loser. Oh I’m sorry, Professor Loomis, didn’t realize you were speaking metaphorically from your tax supported position. Everyone is a bit touchy these days.

I believe these statements by the “perfesser” and others could be easily interpreted as a “terroristic threat”.

Sounds like he has mental issues. He needs to be examined by competent professionals with appropriate notations made to his medical history.

This is the kind of nut that goes off the rails. More likely thought he will incite some impressionable student to commit the crime. What seems like a metaphor to him may be interpreted differently by someone.

Loomis claims that conservatives can’t think for themselves.

Oh, the irony.

But, but, but, crosshairs was a threat according to the left, not a metaphor. Sounds like the lad, cause he certainly is not a man, needs some woodshed edumacationing. Metaphorically speaking, of course!

Traditionally only kings (and dancers for the king, when he gives them authority) can ask for someone’s head.

1) who made him king?
or
2) go confront him yourself and see how that turns out professor-boy.

To accomplish this a knife would be required. Would he then start a campaign to ban and seize all knives?

You know, getting pretty sick of all of these calls for BULLYING out of the mouths of libs, progs, whatever they prefer to be called now. Isn’t BULLYING the Obama Administration’s TOP priority? Guess it matters on who is doing the bullying.

Yes, and they fully expect that someone else will do their dirty work - killing, that is - for them. I'll enjoy the expression on their faces when the butchers bill comes due - right on their very door step.

Well, I guess if a brain consumed with violent video games can do damage, I would guess the same goes for what books you allow your brain to swim in.

“Head on a stick!” is a Tea Party battle cry popularized by John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou, two Southern California radio personalities who hosted rallies against excessive taxation and spending beginning in February, 2009, a movement that became part of the Tea Party. Now, the Left has adopted the slogan.
