Ruse: Liberal Professors Should All Be Shot

Austin Ruse, head of the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute, seems to be trying to outdo his Protestant allies in the fight against equality. He filled in as guest host for Sandy Rios’ radio show and went on a tirade about the Duke student who does porn, blaming it on liberals who run universities and saying they should all be shot.

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.

Uh, Mr. Ruse…the Catholic church hasn’t been able to kill people who disagree with it for a long time. I know you dream about the days when you could, but those days are over. We’re more civilized than that now.

    “Human-hating”? I’ll wager that having sex with someone is generally an indication of the opposite of hating them. If you hate the person you’re having sex with, something is probably very wrong. You’re either in an abusive relationship or being raped. Please seek the appropriate help in either case (counseling or the police, or both).

    …who should all be taken out and shot.

    Maybe it’s because I don’t have enough context, but this sounds more lilke a rhetorical flourish rather than actual advocacy. People may still think that such over the top hyperbole is uncalled for, though.

    At least this time they remembered to put “Family” in the name.

    Without knowing about that particular little private religious school, I wonder whether his daughters would even be eligible for admission into a good secular liberal arts college.

    See, this is why I’m a libertarian college professor. It’s a lot safer. I’m going to miss all my liberal friends, though. In my building all that’d be left is me, our economics prof, and the accounting prof who’s an NRA member. Then again, he’d probably be shooting back and saving all those gun-hatin’ liberals’ asses! (Don’t take this too seriously, folks, please.)

    Since he referred to the Duke porn star, do you think when he said the profs should be shot, that he meant “money shot”?

    Hitchens: Xianity lost its best argument when it lost the power of the noose, stack of firewood, and gun.

    It was a few centuries ago and they still haven’t got over it.

    The xians think that if they can’t murder whoever they want, their religion will fade away. They might well be right.

    It’s mildly amusing to us until you realize xians still kill people when they can.

    The human child sacrifice faith healing rituals of fundies. The 1000 or so alleged witches, mostly children killed in the third world. Xian terrorism has been a problem in the US for decades.

    I and a lot of other scientists have been on their To Kill list for over a decade. They occasionally tell me I’m next.

    And don’t forget the last flicker of the Reformation wars in Northern Ireland, which ended a whole 14 years ago.

    If you wanna keep your daughters away from underage sex with inappropriate men – you’d better leave the Catholic Church ASAP!

    James Hanley,

    Parking would be easier, but I fear the days of small class size and manageable teaching loads would be gone. That’s if I survive. I am one of those people who is too liberal for some and too conservative for others.

    Really? I don’t think “uncalled for” even begins to describe it. And I am not a lawyer, much less an American one, but I should think this ought to be actionable. Perhaps a charge of incitement will teach him to mind his “rhetorical flourish”.

    Sorry, not likely. Other than saying such a thing in front of a gun-toting mob, it would not be considered an incitement to violence under US law … just the freedom of speech of assholes.

    Hate to break the news to ya, Prof, but on his scale you’re way, way over into the “left” target zone.

    On the other hand, he’s going to be very, very busy pretty soon with his sheltered little snowflakes when they (and their hormones) get out of 24/7 supervision. There’s a whole lot of comparative research on his method for raising daughters, and he’s put his money on the wrong horse.

    If that is the case, it is a messed up situation. And an example of why I think an absolutist position on so called “freedom of speech” is a dangerous thing, like every other extremism. A civilised society shouldn’t have to tolerate this kind of poison on the public airwaves. Because every time such hatred gets excused, it will become worse.

    Speech which you agree with doesn’t need to be protected. Free speech is someone screaming at the top of their lungs that which you would spend the rest of your life arguing against at the top of yours.

    Ruse was filling in for Sandy Rios and probably thought it didn’t matter how far out he got. He’s since been fired by American Family Radio, will not be filling in for anyone again, and they’ve deleted his previous programs from their archives.

    Oh for fuck’s fucking sake. No. This is not a matter of it being “offensive,” this is a matter of people’s actual lives being demonstrably threatened. This sort of idiotic *idolatry* should not take precedence.

    That is the usual platitude we hear from the free speech extremists. But you are missing the point which is that I don’t propose to ban any speech on the basis that I don’t agree with it. I am fine with disagreement, really. I am not, however, fine with people saying that I or others should be shot because of this disagreement. And I really feel we need to be protected against this.

    Free speech is someone screaming at the top of their lungs that which you would spend the rest of your life arguing against at the top of yours.

    Another platitude.

    So this Mr. Ruse “argues” that professors should be shot. Do you now propose that profesors should counter that he should be shot? I am not quite sure how you imagine that civilised behaviour and discourse will be promoted this way.

    “Human-hating”? Is that projection, or what? Hmm… maybe “in favor of women controlling their own fertility” -> “not in favor of mandatory childbirth” -> “human-hating”? I dunno, these people continue to baffle me.

    “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’d make bank that his daughters choose a college dear ol’ dad absolutely hates, far from home, and the amount of time between their parents leaving and their first keg stand can be measured in hours. Seven years of delivering pizza in a college town taught me that the ones who were most repressed growing up are the ones who turn into the biggest ragers in college.

    Fuck “civilized discourse,” we have evidence that violent rhetoric from right-wing loons inspires violent actions from right wing Advanced Loons, and we need make no reference to verbal “incivility” to address it.

    The people above you aren’t just making “platitudes,” they’re either committing a gross category error, dumber than fucking cement, or masturbating over paramedic photos from the latest right wing kook shooting right now.

    (See, that was “uncivil”. Note the lack of calls for violence.)

    So you think ‘uncivil’ and ‘violent’ are interchangeable? Have you ever considered that the set of ‘violent’ might just be completely contained within the set of ‘uncivil’?

    “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.”

    So, it sounds like he’s just pissed that he has to PAY for his daughters to be indoctrinated, instead of having a nice state supported religious school (there would have to be THOUSANDS of them to placate all of the splintery sects out there).Of course that would kinda saw off one of the three corners of the teabaggist Hatful-O-Hatin’ Ideas, the one about NO TAXEZZ!

    Catholic schools do, actually, tend to deliver a decent education if you chuck the GODshit out of the curriculum. I went to one for thirteen years and most of my fellow students are pretty intelligent folks. The really smart one are atheists.

    ““Human-hating”? I’ll wager that having sex with someone is generally an indication of the opposite of hating them. If you hate the person you’re having sex with, something is probably very wrong.”

    He’s prolly testifying to his own experience with sex.

    Do Catholics still not realize that their right to talk about other people’s sexual behavior was revoked indefinitely? And will stay revoked until several years after they start compensating their victims and turning over the pedophiles in their ranks? Yeesh.

    Reread the comment.

    Have you ever considered that the set of ‘violent’ might just be completely contained within the set of ‘uncivil’?

    The contents of “uncivil” which are not in “violent” are unproblematic for the purposes of my assertion.

    I see Azkyroth has not quite mastered the art of understatement yet. That is a bit of a
    disappointment.

    What makes you think you’re worthy of the fruits of mastery, cupcake? :)

    Well yes, I believe that was more or less the point I was making when I said
    that Mr. Ruse ought to be charged for incitement.

    It may
    have been but
    you then went on to
    shoot that argument in
    the foot by explicitly linking
    it to a form of fallacious and pointless argument
    commonly referred to as
    “tone trolling” by
    referring to “civil discourse” rather than
    keeping your focus narrowly on
    calls for violence
    Not only is this counterproductive in
    the abstract but it plays very much into the hands of
    those with whom you were arguing, by seemingly validating
    their equivocation between incitement to violence
    and merely “offensive” statements. If this is in fact actually
    the position you intended to advocate it is
    too worthy to be disqualified by such an
    amateurish “own goal.”

    [Kind of
    annoying isn't it?]
