Journalist calls for professors to drown conservative students

On Thursday, Campus Reform reported that Jesse Farrar, a former contributor for Deadspin and Vice who describes himself on Twitter as “some rich entitled, out of touch podcasting man,” responded to a tweet by conservative activist Charlie Kirk by suggesting that professors drown students with a conservative point of view.

“I get countless of messages from students who say professors are lowering their grades & penalizing them for being conservative,” Kirk said in his original tweet.  “Leftists dominating higher education represent a grave threat to our country & culture,” he added.  “Conservative students shouldn’t be targeted for disagreeing.”

Farrar responded with a tweet saying that “it’s not right” for professors to grade conservative students harshly because they “should hold the conservative students[‘] heads under water until they stop breathing, instead.”

Kirk responded:

Farrar, however, said that he wasn’t joking:

Campus Reform added:

The comedy writer also retweeted a statement from a deputy editor of Deadspin, Barry Petchesky, who came to his defense when responding an email related to Farrar’s tweet.

“While Farrar no longer writes regularly for Deadspin, we as an organization do support his stance of trolling white supremacist-supported and associated organizations like Charlie Kirk’s Turning Point USA,” Petchesky said in the statement.

“And while I would not personally advocate the method mentioned in Farrar’s obvious joke Tweet you seem to be using to try to snitch on him to his employers, I can’t argue that it wouldn’t make the world a better place,” he added.

Let’s get this straight:  We have two leftists essentially arguing that the world would be a better place if professors murder their conservative students by drowning them.  And you’re a white supremacist if you disagree.

And notice, if you will, that Farrar has a blue checkmark next to his Twitter name, meaning that he’s a “verified” user.  Does this mean that Twitter endorses his view that students who hold a certain political view be killed?

In February 2011, I first said that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of insane rage and hate.  Liberals, sadly, prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.

It’s no wonder many say that liberalism is a mental disorder, since only a bloodthirsty genocidal maniac would think this is a good idea.
