KU rebukes journalism professor for tweet sent after Navy Yard massacre
Kansas City Red Star ^ | September 19, 3012 | BRIAN BURNES

Posted on 09/20/2013 7:18:58 AM PDT by Second Amendment First

University of Kansas officials criticized a journalism professor Thursday, saying remarks that he tweeted regarding Monday’s shootings at the Washington Navy Yard were “repugnant.”

David Guth tweeted Monday that “blood is on the hands” of the National Rifle Association following the shootings that left 13 people dead.

“Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters,” the tweet read. “Shame on you. May God damn you.”

On Thursday, Ann Brill, dean of the university’s journalism school, said Guth’s views “do not represent our school, and we do not advocate violence directed against any group or individuals.”

While the First Amendment allows anyone to express an opinion, Brill said, “that privilege is not absolute and must be balanced with the rights of others.”

Timothy C. Caboni, university vice chancellor for public affairs, called Guth’s tweet “repugnant,” adding that it was “truly disgraceful that these views were expressed in such a callous and uncaring way.”

America needs a systematic cleansing of pinkos out of academia.

“Frankly, I don’t care if I am criticized for being too quick to judge, too harsh in my criticism or too strident in my tone.”

Let's see if you care after you get fired.

If a maniac were to murder being inspired by the employee of the university would the doctrine of vicarious liability apply to the university?

The doctrine has been used to sue white supremacists for the crimes of skinheads who, IIRC, had no direct connections to the white supremacists other than seeing and hearing the crap they published.

I am getting SO GO@@#$M SICK AND TIRED of being blamed for crap other sick people do.

I had NOTHING TO DO with The navy shipyard killer, The NRA I belong to had nothing to do with it, CONSERVATIVES had nothing to do with it.

If anyone OTHER THAN the killer himself is to blame it is the liberal policies that wont let us lock up criminally insane and democrap presidents who egg them on. This guy turned out to be an Obama supporter right?

Must be- because if he was an ACTUAL NRA MEMBER it would be 24/7 news

“Shame on you. May God damn you.”

Let me guess. Those are not the words of a Christian. Those are the words of an unbelieving jerk who thinks he knows about Christians, or at least knows how to best insult them.

Whoa.. Maybe not.. Let these fruitcakes speak.. Now the low-info voters can understand his simple, however hateful, words, out of the mouth of one of the so-called, intellectual leaders..

His rant says more to the reader than all of the minutia of Gun Control, Background Checks, Sensible Gun Safety..

This moron is the real face of the true opposition, and what is really behind their reasonable catch phrases..

Further, he is also the face of the utter waste of higher education today.. We get more from their own mouth than all of our talking to the zombies..

I just called the Univ. of Kansas at this number: 785-864-2700
They connected me to the chancellors number. The women who answered was very nice. I asked what was going to be done, she said she didn’t know, but that there had been many calls. My issue is what kind of garbage is he teaching his students. He is not fit to teach. Also, we have to get these radicals out of our colleges. She said she agreed, and thanked me for calling. She sounded sincere.

You can be sure if a student republican or a non student went on that campus and said the same words the campus swat doughnut
eaters would have you face planted, charged with domestic terrorism and sent to the psych ward before you could finish your sentence. Free speech my arse. CYA mode and hiding, quivering, under their desks is more like it.

Again dumb f$%ks show me the gun that ever did anything on its own without a deranged liberal behind it then we can talk.

Till then STFU!!!!!

I called the office (spoke with the kind lady), regents (voice mail) and brownstains office. No joy! Yet if a conservative were to say anything close there would be demands for an arrest or worse.

NO PEACE TILL HE IS FIRED!

What would these liberals do if illegal Mexicans raped and murdered their families?

Yesterday I looked this Brill person up, and I could have guaranteed this less-than-slap-on-the-wrist response.

I found some professors who were very conservative Christians, in the English department no less. There are still a few left. I sat next to one at a luncheon yesterday. I was pretty much a liberal until the 1st Gulf War. My husband got me started watching Rush and here I am on freepers. We tell people we are recovering hippies. LOL

The hate and indoctrination powers of the left in our schools & media is not something we can take for-granted. Theses people are TRAINING the vast majority of all the people who control all commutation in this country & the world for decades to come.

Their army of fascist is the greatest threat to freedom and our way of life we have ever known. We must attach theses school officials and their programs vigorously! They must be under the microscope for what they are.
