Liberal Professor Blindsided by Swift Justice After She Attacked Republican Senators

Published

on

Universities are getting more and more toxic. It’s been that way since I went to college. Professors, for the most part, seem to be overwhelmingly of a liberal bent these days. Many are radicalized and some tend towards violence. Once in a while, they get snagged for it.

Georgetown Professor Christine Fair got herself suspended from Twitter last week because she tweeted that GOP senators deserve “slow miserable deaths” and their corpses castrated. Color me surprised that Twitter did that. Miracles never cease. That’s the swiftest justice from Twitter that I have seen and it totally blindsided Fair.

“Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement,” Fair wrote in the tweet that led to her account’s suspension. “All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.” Gee, tell us how you really feel and don’t hold back or nothing.

Fair was even arrogant enough to comment to Fox News that her words were chosen to make her audience uncomfortable. Well, she certainly did that in spades. She also proclaimed that her tweet was “private speech,” meaning that it would be inappropriate for her employer to punish her for it.

Fair’s Georgetown bio states, “Christine Fair is a Provost’s Distinguished Associate Professor in the Security Studies Program within Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service.” She obviously feels she can spout off death threats or violence and not be held accountable for it. She thought wrong at least when it comes to Twitter. Georgetown however…

From Breitbart:

“Unfortunately, universities have punished students over private speech in the past. Take for example an incident involving the Harvard male soccer team. In 2016, Harvard canceled the men’s soccer season after it was revealed that members of the team had privately commented on the appearance of members of the women’s soccer team. Apparently, in our modern world, it is far more egregious to talk about the attractiveness of your peers on a campus than it is to call for the brutal death of public officials because they are “entitled white men.”

“In a comment, a Georgetown spokesperson confirmed exactly that. Georgetown will not punish the private speech of Professor Fair, regardless of how objectionable it might be.

“Our policy does not prohibit speech based on the person presenting ideas or the content of those ideas, even when those ideas may be difficult, controversial or objectionable,” the statement read. “While faculty members may exercise freedom of speech, we expect that their classrooms and interaction with students be free of bias and geared toward thoughtful, respectful dialogue.”

“Glenn Greenwald of the Intercept commented on the suspension in a series of tweets:

“Greenwald points out in his thread that advocates of censorship are inevitably surprised when the very rules they created and supported are used against them. This applies to university professors as much as online social justice warriors.

Fair may have to answer for her words after all. She is no longer teaching classes at Georgetown University following calls for the outspoken liberal educator to be fired it would seem. She’s on leave. A Georgetown spokesperson told Fox News that she is no longer teaching students, but will be traveling internationally for university research.

From Fox News:

“Joel Hellman, dean of the School of Foreign Services (SFS) where Fair is a distinguished associate professor, made the statement Friday afternoon pointing to the importance of a bias-free classroom where students can learn.

“To prevent further disruption to her students and out of an abundance of caution for the security of our community, we have mutually agreed for Professor Fair to go on research leave effective immediately,” Hellman wrote in a statement to the SFS community. “Professor Fair will accelerate previously scheduled international research travel.”

“While the university had previously supported Fair and said her comments were made in a private capacity, Hellman noted the legitimate concerns of the Georgetown community

“We can and do strongly condemn the use of violent imagery, profanity, and insensitive labeling of individuals based on gender, ethnicity or political affiliation in any form of discourse,” Hellman said.”

Fair wrote on Twitter that she does not and never has condoned violence. Right. Her words say otherwise. “My tweet, as I have explained, was an attempt to make YOU as UNCOMFORTABLE as I am using the language of the abuse I receive by the hundreds,” she said. I’ve heard that justification somewhere before.

Just days before all this, Fair went on a Twitter tirade against Kavanaugh, calling him a “rapist” and “perjurer.” She described the GOP as a “f—ing death cult” and “filthy swine.” Gee, she sounds like a lovely person… not. Just the kind of professor you want teaching your kids. Hopefully, she’s gone for good and not just on leave.

Amazon Cancels Plan For New York City Headquarters & 25k Jobs Because Of Ocasio

Published

on

This is not a good day for New York and the good citizens there can thank their liberal tax and spend elitist leaders for their misery. That includes Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. You could say that Jeff Bezos and Cuomo lose and Trump wins once again. That makes me smile.

Fresh off Cuomo making a pilgrimage to the White House to beg President Trump for money and then being told to frack off, another blow just landed to a state that suddenly has a deficit of $2.3 billion in their budget. This won’t help that. Amazon has canceled its plans to build its second headquarters in New York City.

After Ocasio-Cortez whined over the job-maker coming to New York, Bezos decided he had had enough of the socialists. At least for now. He seems rather bent that way himself. Bezos not only owns Amazon.com… he owns the fact-challenged Washington Post. He’s also in the middle of the world’s most expensive divorce.

“After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens,” the Seattle-based Amazon said in the release.

“For Amazon, the commitment to build a new headquarters requires positive, collaborative relationships with state and local elected officials who will be supportive over the long-term. While polls show that 70% of New Yorkers support our plans and investment, a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City,” the statement reads.

What you don’t read there is it is also a tax and regulation issue. New York has been remade into a hostile business environment by leftists. This is the result of that. The company added that it is “disappointed to have reached this conclusion.” I’m sure they are… now they’ll be forced to set up shop in a less-progressive location. Bummer.

“We are deeply grateful to Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio, and their staffs, who so enthusiastically and graciously invited us to build in New York City and supported us during the process,” the company continued in the statement. I wonder if some harsh words are being thrown at Ocasio-Cortez right now.

From Fox News:

“Bankrate.com’s senior economic analyst Mark Hamrick called it a “stunning development,” adding: “For those who didn’t want Amazon to bring the promised 25,000 new jobs and added economic vitality to the area: Be careful what you wish for.”

“Earlier this month, reports surfaced that Amazon was reconsidering its plans for its New York office, which led to cheers from Ocasio-Cortez. “Can everyday people come together and effectively organize against creeping overreach of one of the world’s biggest corporations? Yes, they can,” the freshman lawmaker tweeted.

“Ocasio-Cortez has also slammed the company for having bias in its facial recognition technology.

“Fox News has reached out to Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio and Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s office for comment.

“Amazon said it would proceed as planned with the second part of its HQ2, which will be built in Northern Virginia, as well as its distribution center that it said it would open in Nashville. It will also continue to “hire and grow across our 17 corporate offices and tech hubs in the U.S. and Canada.”

“The deal was greeted with much fanfare when it was announced last year and was lauded as a major economic boost.

“New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio had touted the benefits of Amazon’s HQ2, which included a pledge from the tech giant to create 25,000 jobs, paying an average of $150,000 per year in exchange for a slew of city and state tax breaks and subsidies worth up to $3 billion.

“In addition to the 25,000 jobs, Amazon would’ve brought $2.5 billion in Amazon investment and eventually 8 million square feet of office space to Long Island City as part of its investment announced last November. The Seattle-based company said it would have generated “incremental tax revenue of more than $10 billion over the next 20 years as a result of Amazon’s investment and job creation.”‘

A recent poll showed that 57 percent of New Yorkers welcomed Amazon and the jobs it would bring. So much for socialists supporting the working man.

And while there are those that dithered over what Amazon’s decision could do to already rising real estate prices in the area, Hamrick said this won’t solve those problems.

“From a broader view, this decision will do nothing to resolve the challenges associated with housing affordability voiced by critics of the Amazon decision and the generous tax incentives offered by government,” Hamrick said in comments obtained by Fox News. “That requires a bigger conversation which could very well unfold along with the 2020 election cycle.”

One thing is certain, less business means fewer jobs, which means less money rolling into New York’s coffers. This is what happens when you let socialists run your state like a bunch of free-range chickens.
