Meet the journalism professor
who says NRA members are
treasonous, should be executed

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens

Original Article

Posted By:DaddyO, 6/3/2013 9:33:37 AM

In a bizarre op-ed in The Charleston Gazette last week, journalism professor Christopher Swindell argued that the National Rifle Association “advocates armed rebellion against the duly elected government of the United States of America.” Stirring words, to be sure, but Swindell was hardly done — not even close. He also said that the NRA is guilty of “treason” “worthy of the firing squad.” “To support the new NRA president’s agenda of arming the populace for confrontation with the government is bloody treason,” Swindell charged in his wacky essay.

Comments:
Saw this last week.. on his facebook page he writes "Let´s organize a march on Washington where we all as a people demand the immediate resignations of all parties involved. I mean throw the entire lot out. Make it 1 million strong. Start w/ the 80 Tea Party blatherers but don´t stop there. Throw them all out. Then prosecute them for hurting me ... and hurting you. Then hang them from the nearest tree in their home state." Nice..

He is probably most sincere in his beliefs. Maybe someone from the NRA needs to take him to the range and show him the joy and relaxation of recreational target shooting. It´s more fun than golf.

How delightful to know that you can be a semi-literate crackpot moron and still teach journalism as long as your politics are correct.

I hope the people of Crete sue him for defamation.

Notice the signs of immaturity behind him in the picture, particularly the odd collection of toy cars. While he claims to have been an automotive reporter, his "collection" portrays him as living in a fantasy-land about the subject, much like the rest of his views.

Clearly the product of public schools run by teacher´s union thugs. Little boys are not taught to grow up, think like men, or live in the real world.

Any parent paying money to have this moonbat teach their child should be on campus today demanding his resignation and referral to psychiatric care, if for no other reason than he "likes" Harry Reid on Facebook.

I would bet his suggestion of violence against the NRA violates a number of campus speech codes. I say bring him up on charges and suspend him without pay, pending his removal from his teaching position.

He did this for attention. He´s getting it. I don´t know if he can stand the heat because I really haven´t seen all that many lefties taking up for him, so he´s out there on his own flaming the world and expecting the Democrats to have his back.

If you read the comments after the article he wrote you can see him try to defend himself by dissembling and strawman-building. He´s pretty pathetic.

It´s repugnant to think that any human being would call for the willful murder of anyone who does not agree with their personal or political philosophy especially when that person distorts the truth to fit their own agenda.

This is another example of the malignant thinking that post modern thought has fostered.

I must note that there is a big difference between ´duly elected´ and ´elected´.

Barky was elected but a fraudulent election
falls outside the boundaries of ´duly elected´.

Facts matter.

Ideas matter.

Words matter.

The law is NOT irrelevant.

I read his rant Saturday, and I spend waaaay too much time reading those who posted under it because it was absolutely DELICIOUS to read the way he was very politely and intelligently taken apart--literally got his clock cleaned! Readers pointed out that HE was the only one advocating military force against fellow citizens, to which he would pop back in with some mealy-mouthed correction to his stated preferences. If you have time, read the original and some of the posts under it. ;-D

Cinderella never before received such a gift. Stephen F. Austin, a No. 12 seed and a popular pick to upset No. 5 Virginia Commonwealth, did just that Friday night, 77-75 in overtime.

Republican David Jolly defeated Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby to capture the fiercely contested special election today for the U.S. District 13 Congressional race in Pinellas County. Jolly had 48.5 percent to win the seat and replace his former boss, C.W. Bill Young, who held it for 43 years until his death in October created the need for this special election. Sink, the former state Chief Financial Officer, got 47 percent of the vote, and Overby got 5 percent. A race that normally would play a minor role on the national stage, if any, became a media focal

Piers Morgan’s Revealing Rancor

Sunday’s announcement that Piers Morgan had lost his show at CNN was hardly unexpected. The ratings for the coveted 9 p.m. time slot were abysmal, dropping last week to just 270,000 viewers — about one-eighth of what Fox News’s Megyn Kelly got in the same time slot. Some, such as Variety magazine, have speculated that the low ratings are due to Morgan’s single-minded push for gun control. That might have something to do with it, but much more is going on. In all the thousands of television and radio interviews that I have done over the years, my appearances on Morgan’s

Maria von Trapp, the last of the singing children immortalized in the movie musical "The Sound of Music," died at her Vermont home of natural causes, her half-brother told CNN on Saturday. The native of Austria was 99 and lived in Stowe. She died Tuesday. Maria von Trapp was the third-oldest child of Agathe Whitehead and Capt. Georg von Trapp. The couple had seven children: Rupert, Agathe, Maria, Werner, Hedwig, Johanna and Martina. Georg von Trapp´s second wife, Maria Kutschera von Trapp, wrote a book titled "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers," which sparked two German-made movies and "The Sound

The crew of Gregg Allman biopic “Midnight Rider” was working on train tracks without permission from the railroad in Wayne County, Ga., when a train crashed into the production team, killing one and injuring seven others, an investigator said Friday. The tracks, owned by CSX Railroad, cross private land owned by forest-products company Rayonier, which has a nearby paper mill. Joe Gardner, the lead detective on the case, said the crew had Rayonier’s permission to film on its property next to the train tracks. “CSX has told me they were aware they were out there, but they did not have

But by the time I sat up to see who was there, the door had been shut again. The one who doesn’t knock scurried away without uttering a word. Do

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
