...where "words kill" and literal killing is just a choice.
What am I talking about? A few days ago Austin Ruse, head of C-FAM (Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute), a U.N. watch dog group, filled in as a guest host on American Family Radio. During the show he said this about gender studies what passes for education at the modern university:
That is the nonsense that they teach in women’s studies at Duke University, this is where she learned this. The toxic stew of the modern university is gender studies, it’s “Sex Week,” they all have “Sex Week” and teaching people how to be sex-positive and overcome the patriarchy. My daughters go to a little private religious school and we pay an arm and a leg for it precisely to keep them away from all of this kind of nonsense. I do hope that they go to a Christian college or university and to keep them so far away from the hard left, human-hating people that run modern universities, who should all be taken out and shot.Does anyone seriously think Austin literally advocates the execution of college professors?
He used a common expression (It's called hyperbole, by the way.) to indicate a strong disagreement over a serious issue. Oh my goodness, the liberal left rose in self-righteous indignation to attack him. Right Wing Watch, the Huffington Post, and other liberal media are oh-so-shocked! (Wonder how long they had to practice in front of a mirror to show the proper degree of horror.) So, of course, Austin was taken to the woodshed and has come out with the appropriate grovel which reminds me of the poor sap in D.C. who used the word "niggardly" and was, in fact, taken out and shot rhetorically by ignorant idiots who don't know how to use a dictionary.
But what really has me steamed is the fact that these liberal liars are perfectly fine with literal killing. Hey, drag that baby feet first into the birth canal, stab him in the neck, and suck out his brains. "Three cheers for choice." The little parasite managed to be born alive? "Throw her in the toilet or a bucket of water to drown or slit her throat. "Just correcting a mistake." Dehydrate and starve to death granny and gramps and the handicapped. "Three cheers for death with dignity."
Austin had nothing for which to apologize. He used a rhetorical device that was completely on target. As an English major and lover of literature, I'm sick and tired of the bastardization and dumbing down of language to satisfy the ignorant and politically correct. And let me remind you of Planned Parenthood's cartoon video showing a supersex-hero blowing up pro-lifers and the relentless rhetoric of the left calling for violence against conservatives. There's even a video game where players go into a FOX Studio and kill off "zombies" that look like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and other popular conservatives. Ever hear of it? Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, pro-lifers, and the Tea Party are frequent targets, but attacking those individuals and groups is so politically correct who notices? Leftist haters like Bill Maher, Chris Matthews, etc. should all be taken out and shot. Give me a blunt hypodermic loaded with saline and I'll be happy to do the injections myself in their fat left hindquarters!
