The Georgetown University professor who previously tweeted profanity-laced comments about Republicans now says white GOP senators in Thursday’s Kavanaugh hearing “deserve miserable deaths.”
- The professor recently tweeted of GOP senators, “we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine.”
One current Georgetown student said others who see the professor’s tweet might feel “threatened” if they hold different opinions.
Georgetown University Distinguished Associate Professor Christine Fair tweeted that white Republican senators in the Brett Kavanaugh hearing deserve to die.
“Look at thus [sic] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement,” Fair tweeted on Thursday. Referencing a video of “Lindsey Graham’s tirade,” Fair, who is a victim of sexual assault, added, “all of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps.”
“[A]ny of her students that see this rant are going to feel threatened if they have opinions that differ from hers.”
“Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes,” she concluded the tweet.
“Professor Fair’s extremely offensive and violent remark goes against everything in line with Georgetown’s values,” TJ Collins, a recent Georgetown graduate told Campus Reform. “President DeGioia should immediately issue a statement condemning the tweet, and Professor Fair should not be permitted in the classroom ever again,” Collins added.
“As a student applying to this school, I wouldn’t have dared use that kind of language on a social media platform, especially surrounding a sensitive and controversial issue. Georgetown wouldn’t have admitted me if they had seen stuff like that,” a current Georgetown student who wished to remain anonymous, told Campus Reform.
“I don’t think people that Georgetown actually employs should be held to a significantly lower standard. And clearly, any of her students that see this rant are going to feel threatened if they have opinions that differ from hers” the student continued.
Upon being contacted by Campus Reform to comment for this article, Fair stated, “There is a war going on against women and you, and your despicable herd of so-called journalists seeking to protect male privilege and shame women for our victimization or our rage are complicit in this war.”
Days before, Fair tweeted, “GOP doesn’t care about women. We knew this. Fuck them.”
