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

Authored by Nikita Vladimirov via Campus Reform,

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.

The Seattle PI, and Atlantic, have had stories about a fence being built to protect the freeway overpass from homeless people. It has spikes. Apparently two RVs caught on fire and ended up causing more than $300K in damage to the overpass. Now, the fence (which wasn't cheap, either). Of course the libs are whinging about the hostile archeticture. (Yes, they have a name for non-friendly to homeless people type fencing, or other things like rocks, or dividers on benches and that name is hostile architecture).

I looked at web site for Turning Point USA. It is for reasonable values like fiscal responsibility etc. There is nothing racist, white supremacist etc.  This guy from Deadspin, Barry Petchesky, must be a marxist using classical Critical Theory to criticize, marginalize, humiliate, lie and repeat continuously until the truth is blurred.

BTW the so called white supremacists defined as anyone trying to preserve white culture from the progressive assault. But they should demand to be called what they really are: White Survivalists. It may be more difficult for the cultural marxists to lie about their motives.

THAT guy is what a troll or provacatuer looks like. Advocating killing people like that, and encouraging others to do the same. I favored trick of the FBI and other agencies. Find some confused, angry, but not dangerous person, push them to become more and more extreme in their beliefs, convince them they need to do something, then set him up to do something like, say, buy explosives from another agent or informant, then arrest them so they can say they caught a terrorist, or in this case, a 'right wing extremist'.

A few chants of, "The power of Sam compels you," ought to take care of that.

But seriously, Walmart has the friendliest and most helpful staff of any store at which I shop. I also stopped at the competing local grocery store today and ended my transaction by thanking the cashier who did not thank me in return. The conversation she was having with her friend was more important.
