Katherine Timpf reports for Campus Reform that a University of Georgia ecology professor Amy Rosemond blamed “tyrannical” conservative “terrorists” for the recent federal government shut down.
While speaking at a rally she’d organized outside of Rep. Paul Broun’s (R-GA) office on Oct. 11, 2013, Rosemond told the Athens Banner-Herald that conservatives are guilty of “tyranny” for holding the government “hostage” during the budget negotiations.
She said, “For the next generation, we’ve got to stand again acts of tyranny, where our government is held hostage for negotiations. One thing we’ve learning in our democracy is that we can’t negotiate with terrorists.”
Four days later on Oct. 15, in an interview with Campus Reform, Rosemond regretted her use of the word “terrorist” but still insisted that conservatives had held the U.S. government “hostage.”
She said, “I do regret using the word ‘terrorist,’ because I do not consider anyone a terrorist here, but it’s this action of holding the government functioning through the spending bill hostage as part of trying to gain something politically. Hostage is the term that could be, to link those concepts.”

A people search on the net found that the only “Amy Rosemond” who lives in Georgia is a 52-year-old woman who lives in Bogart, GA, which is a 19-mins’ drive from the U. of Georgia in Athens, GA.
Curiously, Spokeo identifies both Amy Rosemond and her husband, 53-year-old Richard L. Rosemond, as African-American in ethnicity. But you can see from their respective photos that they sure don’t look black! (Spokeo obtains its information from public records.)
Richard Lynn Rosemond is an M.D. and obstetrician/gynecologist whose primary place of work is Athens Maternal Fetal Medicine in Athens, GA.
On a hunch, I did an Internet search for “Richard Rosemond abortion.”
The website lifescript.com identifies Richard Rosemond as one of “the doctors in Athens, GA, who treat or diagnose abortion.”
My message to Amy Rosemond:
She who lives in a glass blood-spattered house really should refrain from throwing stones.
Dr. Eowyn is the Editor of Fellowship of the Minds.
