Austin Ruse: Liberal university professors "should all be taken out and shot"

On March 12th, 2014, Austin Ruse, filling in for American Family Radio's usual lunatic, Sandy Rios, more than lived up to her standards by insisting that "the hard left, human-hating people that run modern universities" should "all be taken out and shot."

Ruse made these remarks while commenting on the media frenzy surrounding a Duke University freshman who announced that she is a porn actress, which Ruse, who leads the incredibly inappropriately-named Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (C-Fam), blamed the entirely on the college's women's studies department.

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.

Hopefully, it does not need to be explained to anyone why Ruse's comments are out of line and should not be welcome anywhere in the public forum.

If nothing else, the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute must now either disavow Austin Ruse or remove "Human Rights" from their title. Under no circumstances whatsoever is it appropriate to call for an ideological opponent to be murdered.
