Marshall University Professor Suggests Using Military to Kill NRA Members/Conservatives

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Charlestown Gazette recently published the editorial by a Marshall University professor who advocated using an “M1A Abrams tank, supported by an F22 Raptor squadron with Hellfire missiles” to kill NRA members, Republicans, Conservatives, and those who support the Second Amendment.

In an anti-gun piece that could best be described as a foaming-at-the-mouth tirade, Professor Christopher Swindell employs incredibly overheated rhetoric, punctuated by constant name calling, spiced with grammatical errors and out right lies to expound upon his hate for those with whom he disagrees.

Early in his piece, for instance, Swindell describes the rhetoric of supporters of the Second Amendment as “knuckle-dragging Cretan talk.” Yes, he wrote “Cretan talk.” A twofer that is both misspelled and needlessly capitalized.

Would it surprise you to learn that Christopher Swindell is a professor of journalism in Marshall University’s journalism and mass communications department? (swindell@marshall.edu)

After he calls several prominent Republican lawmakers a few choice names, he simplistically claims that the desire to nullify Obama’s un-Constitutional gun grabs at the state level is exactly the same as what the south did during the Civil War.

Sticking with that theme, Swindell soon turned to the main false premise upon which he based his ire against the NRA. “The NRA,” Swindell foams, “advocates armed rebellion against the duly elected government of the United States of America.”

This is, of course, an absurd claim. The NRA is a staunch supporter of both the country and the Constitution and has never advocated any sort of “armed rebellion” against the government.

Naturally, Swindell also presumes that anyone that disagrees with President Obama is a racist. Those that oppose Obama are “white, rich old men” and they are “half-wits” who oppose this “African-American president we voted for.”

This is all “treason,” Swindell cries deliriously, “and it’s worthy of the firing squad,” he proclaims.

But after Swindell employs some of his best, lowest common denominator-styled prose to name call those with whom he disagrees, he gets to his solution. He wants to use the U.S. military to kill supporters of the Constitution of the United States of America.

To turn the song lyric they so love to quote back on them, “We’ll put a boot in your —, it’s the American way.”

Except it won’t be a boot. It’ll be an M1A Abrams tank, supported by an F22 Raptor squadron with Hellfire missiles. Try treason on for size. See how that suits. And their assault arsenal and RPGs won’t do them any good.

What do you expect from a professor that claims Tea Partiers hate the United States?

Interestingly, a year ago this highly combative professor of journalism announced on his own Facebook page that he was going to quit social media. Apparently his blood pressure was at issue

It all seems to be yet another example of the liberal “tolerance” we see on university campuses, these days.
