“Kansas University Professor Wishes Death on the Children of NRA Members, Liberals Applaud” [UPDATE: You're not in Kansas anymore, Mr Guth!]
As I’m sure is the case with many readers here, this means Kansas University associate professor of journalism David W. Guth is wishing death of our children. Their crime? Being the offspring of those who work to protect a natural right safeguarded by a Constitution that they openly deplore.
In the aftermath of Sandy Hook, comedian and actor Jim Carrey referred to gun owners as “heartless motherf**kers” and released the now infamous video for his song Cold Dead Hands. If you thought we might get out of another tragedy without a liberal lunatic outburst, think again. Kansas University associate professor of journalism David W. Guth vented online in the wake of the DC Navy Yard tragedy:
Guth’s Twitter feed also contained the following gem in response to a follower’s rebuke for calling on God to damn people, and wishing their children were dead:
And of course, none of this would be complete without an overview of David Guth’s views on freedom of speech:
Yes, when the NRA expresses their freedom of speech, or peaceably and successfully petitions elected representatives on behalf of their members, David Guth would have their children sentenced to death. But when the University of Edinburgh bans Blurred Lines, it’s a tragedy for open minds and free expression.
Liberal cognitive dissonance is never more clear than it is when a liberal opens his mouth to switch feet, or when he does the rough equivalent on his Twitter feed. Guth went on to double down on his earlier tweets about God’s justice and his death wish for the children of NRA members.
When contacted by Campus Reform about his tweet, Guth’s response was as follows:
“Hell no, hell no, I do not regret that Tweet. I don’t take it back one bit.”
Kansas University distanced itself from Guth’s statements, calling Guth’s tweet a private tweet that did not represent the views of the university. One wonders if Guth was on the clock, or in his office, or on KU’s Internet when he sent his tweet. Was it truly private, or did he engage in such reprehensible speech using KU’s resources while at work?
Is Kansas University even going to bother to look into it?
As a journalism professor, David Guth could have taken issue with the media coverage and its inaccuracies, specifically the misidentification of Lt. Rollie Chance as the shooter, or the initial reports that an AR-15 was used. In fact, a shotgun was used, the shooter was Aaron Alexis, and the media repeatedly got details wrong throughout the incident.
David Guth didn’t do any of that. Instead, he wished death upon the children of NRA members, because the liberal corrective is a child’s life for disagreeing on an issue, while liberals almost universally oppose capital punishment for convicted murderers. Disagree with a liberal, and they’ll endorse killing your children for having the temerity to depart from their ideological worldview.
At Grassroot Journal, we attempt to push citizen activism as part of our mission. In other words, we don’t just want to point out the liberal agenda and get you fired up, we want you to do something about the liberal agenda and the ugly ways in which it manifests itself. David Guth is a state employee who likely sent out these tweets on state time, while using a state funded and provided Internet network. In and of itself, that makes his speech anything but private. Kansas University would be well within its power to look into the matter, and to fire David Guth if he in fact engaged in such odious speech while at work.
What we’re asking you to do is simple enough. Call the University of Kansas at the numbers below, and let them know that you demand an answer as to where David Guth was, and what Internet network he was using, and you demand accountability for his inflammatory statements as it relates to your children.
Email the Human Resources Department at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them you want an investigation of Guth’s online behavior and where he was when it took place. Call the Human Resources Department at 785-864-4946 or fax them at 785-864-5790. Call Human Resources Director Ola Faucher at 785-864-7411 and let her know what you think of David Guth’s outrageous online speech. Tell her you want an investigation into the specifics of that speech, and whether or not he violated any of the university’s policies for its personnel. You can email Ola Faucher at email@example.com.
I know of at least one professor who lost her job after making veiled threats about the death of child — my oldest, who at the time was only 2.
At the time, I tried to dissuade people from contacting her university; I myself never did.
But as time has gone by I’ve changed my stance on such things. Assholes like this don’t deserve to be making a living off of taxpayer money — particularly when he’s wishing death on the children of millions of taxpayers whose own labor gives him license to vent his vile eliminationist fantasies.
And as we now live in a culture where we’re no longer allowed to simply pull a guy like this out of the comfortable cloister of his liberal bubble and give him the beat down he deserves — many of the problems the country has with liberals would be solved had we not turned the solving of all our disputes over to lawyers and law enforcement, but rather still respected a well-timed and well-deserved punch to the nose — I am in agreement with Grass Root Journal: call the university, email HR and contact its campus director, and continue to follow up on this.
In the meantime, as David Guth is so into “freedom of expression,” take advantage of his Twitter feed.
At the end of this, I’d like to be able to write the headline, “Liberal Asshole Professor Not in Kansas Anymore.”
Let’s make it happen. For the children.
update: Loathsome shithole placed on administrative leave. Not good enough. His ass has no business in a tax-payer funded classroom ever ever ever again.
Go try to find a job in the world you agitate for, David. And be careful: Campus security doesn’t operate outside of the campus proper, so you might actually have to concern yourself with real world questions about how best to keep yourself and your family safe from the society that exists outside of your erstwhile academic bubble.
Fortunately for you, the people of Kansas whose children you’d like to see dead are, on the whole, armed — or open to the idea — which means crime isn’t going to be as big an issue where you are as it would be in, say, DC, where the gun laws are onerous, and Joe Biden’s gun of choice was used to murder the only level of security available to the 12 innocents who were then slaughtered by a liberal just like you.
So you’re welcome, ingrate.
