“Time to start shooting NRA members” is a terroristic threat, Mr Loomis. Yes, “MISTER”.
I nominate Professor Loomis for Dumb-Azz of the year. I know there is lots of competition here (should start a whole other thread on this). A visible community Professor who tweets the hate he did? He certainly is in contention. I submit his name to the FR committee for consideration.
has someone done the side by side pic with Jared Loughner yet? they look like intellectual(and real-life)twins.
Mr Loomis won’t be passing any background checks soon.
This guy will be getting a job on MSNBC soon..he’d fit perfectly
It’s funny (strange) how “I want his head on a stick” is a “metaphor - why can’t conservatives understand metaphors?”, but a cross-hair on a political opponent’s name is a “call to incite violence”.
That’s one angry dude.

heh...i got sent to the twitter gulag right after making a snarky post to him.
Funny...you can get booted off of twitter for snark from the right, but lefties can advocate murder and it’s ok....
it was fun while it lasted tho...
He probably knows no more about American history than he does about...fornication.
This moron is a history professor? Hey, white boy, we'll drop you in the the middle of Mogadishu in 2012 and see whose head ends up on a stick.
Who is she? Let's ask wikipedia:
"A frequent theme of her workparticularly evident in her early storieshas been the dilemmas of a girl coming of age and coming to terms with her family and the small town she grew up in. In recent work such as Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage (2001) and Runaway (2004) she has shifted her focus to the travails of middle age, of women alone and of the elderly. It is a mark of her style for characters to experience a revelation that sheds light on, and gives meaning to, an event.
A *GUY* LOVES THESE BOOKS...? HOW GAY IS THAT...?
I’m curious as to whether sites such as Twitter or Facebook are liable in some way for posts that call for violence against others.
I’m also curious whether this a$$hat will have a job by the end of the week.
Further, I’m trying to recall the last time a member of the TEA Party endorsed wholesale violence against people with whom they disagree.

Re: Erick Loomis
Dear Sir or Madam,
Much has been said about the state of mind of the shooter at the elementary School in Connecticut and what may have provoked him to do such a horrible thing. Many have said he should have been diagnosed as mentally unstable and should not have been allowed in an open society.
I am writing you to say that you have this same type person, Eric Loomis, on your campus and in fact he may be as unstable as the shooter in Connecticut!!
My Loomis recently tweeted @rudepunditt First fucker to say the solution is for elementary school teachers to carry guns needs to be beaten to death. This is exactly the type of language that could cause some unstable person to go out and kill. I believe and hope you would agree that we can have a civil debate on this without the need for inciting violence?
As a member of the NRA and an advocate of teachers being armed, I now fear that my travels which take me on occasion to your fair state may put me at the risk of being harmed because of this type of tweet by Mr. Loomis.
It is my belief that you should immediately have a psychiatric evaluation of Mr. Loomis and provide the public with proof that Mr. Loomis is a stable person capable of teaching in an institution such as yours. Failure to do so and blood could possibly be on your hands because of his tweets.

That which has been seen...cannot be unseen
Sounds like Loomis has an anger problem. I hope the school gets him some help before he snaps.
And is Loomis an Assistant Professor or is he an assistant to the professor?
