UK comedian Jo Brand says, “throw acid at politicians instead of milkshakes”

Because battery acid attacks are hilarious! Just ask the Muslim women who are real victims of acid attacks.

How progressive and tolerant!

From The Sun: NIGEL Farage has accused comedian Jo Brand of “inciting violence” after she said politicians should have battery acid thrown at them instead of milkshakes.

The telly star, 61, was appearing on BBC Radio 4 when she joked about recent milkshake attacks on politicians, which included one hurled at the Brexit Party leader.

Farage, who had a banana and salted caramel Five Guys milkshake thrown on him while campaigning in Newcastle ahead of the EU elections last month, called for police to take action over ‘incitement of violence’.

Speaking on the Heresy show last night, Brand said: “Certain unpleasant characters are being thrown to the fore, and they’re very, very easy to hate. And I’m kind of thinking, why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?”

She added: “That’s just me, sorry, I’m not gonna do it, it’s purely a fantasy. But I think milkshakes are pathetic, I honestly do. Sorry.

Responding to that today Farage said: “This is incitement of violence and the police need to act.”

Brendan Cox, whose Labour MP wife Jo Cox was murdered by a far-right fanatic in her own constituency in June 2016, tweeted: “I dislike Nigel Farage‘s politics profoundly. But I don’t think throwing stuff at politicians you disagree with is a good idea. It normalises violence and intimidation and we should consistently stand again it.”

Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom confirmed it had received 19 complaints from angry listeners since the show was broadcast.

The sick gag was met with howls of laughter from the studio audience and show host Victoria Coren Mitchell didn’t appear concerned by the remarks.

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan said: “Disgusting. This is an incitement for people to throw acid at politicians. Shame on you, Jo Brand.”

Leave.EU tweeted: “Absolutely disgusting remark by so-called “comedian” Jo Brand, who suggested last night on @BBCRadio4 that we throw battery acid at our politicians.

“Is this sort of hate speech what we fund the @BBC for? Shameful!”

But fellow comedians defended the star, with Lee Hurst writing: “Jo Brand is a comedian. She has made a joke. You may not find it funny or you may find it funny. Comedy is subjective. If you criticise her because you like her target, but defend other jokes of a similar nature against targets you don’t like you are a hypocrite.

The BBC refused to apologise for the broadcast and said remarks on the comedy show were ‘not intended to be taken seriously’.

A spokeswoman said: “Heresy is a long-running comedy programme where, as the title implies and as our listeners know, panellists often say things which are deliberately provocative and go against societal norms but are not intended to be taken seriously.”

Georgetown professor says white GOP senators “deserve miserable deaths” after Kavanaugh hearing

What a miserable creature.

From Fox News: An anti-Trump professor at Georgetown University is taking heat for a tweet saying white Republican senators who were at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing Friday should be castrated and endure a miserable death.

Dr. Carol Christine Fair, an associate professor in the Security Studies Program at Georgetown, said white Republican senators, specifically Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, who defended Kavanaugh in a fiery speech, deserve miserable deaths.” Fair went on to say in her Saturday message that the living should “castrate their corpses and feed them to swine.”

“Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement,” she wrote. “All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”

The week before, Fair went on a profanity-laced Twitter tirade against Kavanaugh, calling the embattled nominee a “rapist” and “perjurer.” She described the GOP as a “f—ing death cult” and “filthy swine.”

One Georgetown student pointed out the oldest Catholic university in America would not recruit students with this kind of behavior in their online portfolio, and it makes no sense coming from a distinguished professor, either.

“I don’t think people that Georgetown actually employs should be held to a significantly lower standard,” one student told Campus Reform, “And clearly, any of her students that see this rant are going to feel threatened if they have opinions that differ from hers.”

Fair told Fox News the tweets are part of her “private speech” and referred to a blog post she wrote on her personal site in which she wrote she chose her words specifically, and they were “intended to make you uncomfortable.”

A Georgetown University spokesperson told Fox News the views of faculty members expressed in their private capacities are their own and not the views of the university.

“Our policy does not prohibit speech based on the person presenting ideas or the content of those ideas, even when those ideas may be difficult, controversial or objectionable,” the statement said. “While faculty members may exercise freedom of speech, we expect that their classrooms and interaction with students be free of bias and geared toward thoughtful, respectful dialogue.”

ThinkProgress justice editor: “Confront Republicans where they sleep”

Ian Millhiser: Tweeting a call for violence?

Ian Millhiser is a “Justice Editor” for ThinkProgress. He apparently is well familiar with laws, having graduated from Duke University School of Law and was Senior Note Editor of the Duke Law Journal ​.  Millhiser joined the Center for American Progress ​ in September 2009. He was previously a Staff Attorney for the Senior Citizens Law Center.

Yesterday he tweeted the following:

“Tell me again why we shouldn’t confront Republicans where they eat, where they sleep, and where they work until they stop being complicit in the destruction of our democracy.”

I would think that one familiar with laws would understand that confronting a republican “where they sleep” could be a very, very dangerous and life-ending act (as well as illegal) as many, many republicans have firearms. If ANY intruder tries to confront me where I sleep, they’ll swiftly meet some lead.

I wonder how long Twitter will allow this progressive to leave his threatening tweet up? That’s rhetorical, of course. As we know, Twitter only silences conservatives.

These libtards are completely unhinged.
