(Liberal) Journalist Calls For Professors To Drown Conservative Students: "Not Joking"

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02- ... e-students

A liberal journalist and podcaster declared in a Twitter exchange Wednesday night that professors should drown conservative students instead of just grading them harshly.

Jesse Farrar, a former contributor for Deadspin and Vice, made the comment in response to a tweet from conservative activist Charlie Kirk calling attention to the anti-conservative bias in college classrooms.

“I get countless of messages from students who say professors are lowering their grades & penalizing them for being conservative,” Kirk remarked 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 took issue with Kirk’s position, facetiously tweeting 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 later criticized Farrar, suggesting that there is a double standard between what jokes conservatives and liberals can make on social media.

“Interesting, @BronzeHammer seems to call for the death of conservative students via water boarding suffocation,” Kirk tweeted. “Im [sic] sure he is joking, but imagine if conservatives made a joke like that against liberals?”

“I am not joking,” Farrar responded.

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.

Farrar did not immediately respond to Campus Reform’s request for comment.

Another branch of antifa??

Although I will admit to being a bit down the ladder of Steadfast's way of presentations, his feelings are compatible with the rational and thinking fer sure, but when you reference to the professor's ranting of 'drowning' kinda reminds one of karl marx, howard zinn, saul alinski, et al, all rolled up...
Not being exactly fraternally compatible but true to form after a century of 'eliminating' the 'enemy' to the tune of around 135,000,000 souls, this could rack up to become a major byte of society and culture if we keep turning cheeks...
I signed on early at the end of political correctness, so pardon me if I do not display the decorum and apparent niceness of a smooth talking gentleman who has a better way with words...

Rather would call a spade a spade... It's Easter once again... Time to pick someone...

This guy is one of the same ilk that came to Marshfield - that the town hired and paid him and his group to 'study' the town for development planning. Imagine - there are a lot of your neighbors that think like this guy.
