'Disgraceful:' University suspends prof who hoped for murder of NRA children
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 09/20/2013 9:47:17 AM PDT by bryan999

Administrators at the University of Kansas have suspended the journalism professor who suggested on Monday he would like to see the murder of the children of National Rifle Association (NRA) members.

KU's chancellor, Bernadette Gray-Little, announced the suspension Friday morning, according to a local radio station, KMBZ.

"In order to prevent disruptions to the learning environment for students, the School of Journalism and the university, I have directed Provost Jeffrey Vitter to place Associate Professor Guth on indefinite administrative leave pending a review of the entire situation,” he said.

“Professor Guth’s classes will be taught by other faculty members," he added.

And on Thursday the school released a statement condemning Guth's tweet.

“pending revie of the entire situation”

What is there to review? It's open and shut.

They need time for it all to blow over so this buttnugget can go back to work.

This is what he said:

““The blood is on the hands of the #NRA,” David Guth, an associate professor of journalism at the university’s William Allen White School of Journalism, tweeted. “Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God damn you.””

When some people say things like this, its because they get carried away in the heat of the moment and say things they really don’t mean. When it comes to a university professor like this, my bet is that this guy really meant it.

This thread has just added to the FreeRepublic "bang list" (firearms interest list) by adding the keyword "banglist".

Any time a firearms-related thread is created on FreeRepublic, please be sure to add the "banglist" keyword to it so that interested FReepers don't miss it. Just a suggestion.

I’m sure this asshat doesn’t know (or care) that many law enforcement and .mil folks are NRA members, maybe even some of the brave people who took down the Navy Yard shooter. Dumbsh**.

Why would The Blaze put ‘seemingly’ in its title? The word ‘explicitly’ would be more accurate IMHO.

I don't have any kids, but am an NRA member (GOA, too). Maybe David Guth would like to see me murdered? Maybe he'd like to try it himself?

Naaaaaah...as a liberal chickensh*t, he's more likely to have someone do it for him. Those enlightened, intellectual types can't be bothered with getting their hands dirty actually doing something themselves.

Tenured?

No, apparently an associate professor looking for tenure. I don't think this will help. Whatever the committee thinks within itself it does NOT help to give the U a public black eye in the sight of donors.

Speaking with Campus Reform on Wednesday, Guth confirmed it was he who sent the controversial tweet.

“Hell no, hell no, I do not regret that Tweet,” he said. “I don't take it back one bit.”

So much for the "heat-of-the-moment" theory.
