Kill NRA Kids Says RA Prof
#1
Another crazed RA prof demanding death for people he doesn't like. But unlike similar disgraceful incidents like those involving stalker George Gollin, this time the university suspended the jerk. But shouldn't they be firing his stupid ass as a menace to civilized society? Or are faculty death threats so common that RA administrators are just blasé about it all?

Administrators at the [regionally accredited] University of Kansas have suspended the journalism professor who suggested on Monday he would like to see the murder of the children of National Rifle Association (NRA) members.

KU's chancellor, Bernadette Gray-Little, announced the suspension Friday morning, according to a local radio station, KMBZ.

Professor Guth has been placed on administrative leave.

"In order to prevent disruptions to the learning environment for students, the School of Journalism and the university, I have directed Provost Jeffrey Vitter to place Associate Professor Guth on indefinite administrative leave pending a review of the entire situation,” he said.

“Professor Guth’s classes will be taught by other faculty members," he added.

And on Thursday the school released a statement condemning Guth's tweet.

“The contents of Professor Guth’s tweet were repugnant and in no way represent the views or opinions of the University of Kansas. "[I]t is truly disgraceful that these views were expressed in such a callous and uncaring way. We expect all members of the university community to engage in civil discourse and not make inflammatory and offensive comment

There is no word whether or not Guth will be paid throughout the suspension.

Guth turned to Twitter on Monday in response the a crazed gunman’s rampage at the Navy Yard in Washington D.C., in which 12 perished.

“#NavyYardShooting The blood is on the hands of the #NRA,” tweeted David Guth, who is an associate professor of Journalism at the university’s William Allen White School of Journalism.

“Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters, he continued. “Shame on you. May God damn you.”

Speaking with Campus Reform on Wednesday, Guth confirmed it was he who sent the controversial tweet.

“Hell no, hell no, I do not regret that Tweet,” he said. “I don't take it back one bit.”

Campus Reform has learned that Guth was also publicly censured by the university on October 8, 2010 for "unprofessional, threatening, and abusive behavior towards another faculty."

"His conduct violated acceptable standards for professional ethics, University policies and Article V.2 and Article V.5 of the Faculty Code of Conduct," read's the public notice on the school's website. "This announcement represents public censure of Professor Guth for his actions."

But nobody at the University of Illinois does shit about stuff like this...

Quote:Guth will not return to classroom this year
Thu, 10/24/2013

LAWRENCE — University of Kansas Associate Professor David Guth, who was put on indefinite administrative leave Sept. 20 after posting comments on his personal Twitter account that caused disruptions in the university’s learning environment, will not return to classroom duties this year, the university announced today.

In place of teaching, Guth has been assigned additional non-classroom responsibilities in the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications for the remainder of the semester, including various service and administrative assignments. Those assignments will be completed away from campus to the greatest extent possible.

The decision, made by Provost Jeffrey Vitter and approved by Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, is based on the recommendation of a seven-member committee of faculty and staff, assembled at the chancellor’s request. The committee was asked to assess the current environment and recommend whether Guth could return from administrative leave without disrupting the student learning environment.

The decision ends Guth’s administrative leave and is effective Friday, Oct. 25.

“The committee conducted a full review, and their input was instrumental in arriving at this decision,” Gray-Little said. “Our decisions throughout this situation have been guided by the facts and the law, respecting the interests of our students and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.”

Guth will begin a previously approved semester-long research sabbatical beginning in January 2014. Teaching assignments for the fall 2014 semester have not yet been made.
