Associate Professor David Guth, of the University of Kansas, has been suspended after an idiotic rant about the NRA, in which he expressed the wish that their children would die. This follows on the heels of the firing of the Sacramento flack for the democratic party, who tweeted that Amanda Carpenter’s children should die a slow painful death because she had the audacity to work for someone his seriously deranged mind hated.
Guth, a subhuman like Allan Brauer, who lacks personal courage, went on to twitter to make his asinine comments. There has been no announcement on whether his leave is with or without pay, but anyone who has such little class or common sense does not belong in a university classroom or civilized society.
Bernadette Gray-Little, the university’s chancellor, announced her decision on Friday:
“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. Professor Guth’s classes will be taught by other faculty members.”
Guth is not apologizing either. He repeated his tripe, which will hopefully hasten his departure from the university.
“Hell no, hell no, I do not regret that Tweet, I don’t take it back one bit.”
“It absolutely appalls me that after Newtown, we could not have come to some kind of sane agreement on something as simple as the number of bullets in a magazine or the availability of assault weapons.”
“I don’t wish what happened today on anyone. But if it does happen again — and it likely will — may it happen to those misguided miscreants who suggest that today’s death toll at the Navy Yard would have been lower if the employees there were allowed to pack heat.”
Let me point out that the Navy Yard shooter did not have an assault rifle, but he was the proud owner of a Democratic Voter Registration card and is a big fan of Obama’s, whose tenure in office has been marked by hate speech and division. The professor also failed to point out these recent mass murderers are all loud-mouthed cowardly liberals such as himself.
A spokesman for the university, upon hearing these and the previous remarks explained:
“…repugnant and in no way represent the views or opinions of the University of Kansas.”
“Like all Americans, he has the right under the First Amendment to express his personal views and is protected in that regard. But it is truly disgraceful that these views were expressed in such a callous and uncaring way. We expect all members of the university community to engage in civil discourse and not make inflammatory and offensive comments.”
Guth should be through with his career as a college assistant professor, but he does have a bright future as a PMSDNC host if he ever learns not to hold back on his hatred and vitriol.
