A professor of Media Arts and Animation at the Art Institute of Washington called for Republicans to be “lined up and shot.” And he made that vicious statement just a few weeks before a crazed far-left gunman targeted members of the GOP during a baseball practice at an Alexanderia, Virginia, ball field, and unleashed a hail of gunfire that ultimately wounded four.
Dr. John Griffin is his name.
And in a Facebook post decrying the Republican attempt to reel back Obamacare, Griffin actually ranted about the need to shoot Republicans.
The Daily Caller has the news:
“In another post, Griffin used an expletive to refer to the GOP.
“‘Republicans are a f***ing joke and their voting block runs the gamit [sic] from monstrous to ignorant,’ Griffin wrote.
“Griffin, whose school is located just outside of Washington D.C., later apologized.”
Well, isn’t that nice — he apologized.
But can you imagine the national outcry, particularly from the media, if a member of the Republican Party — a GOP professor who happened to have snuck under the leftist radar and actually obtained employment in one of today’s modern universities — called for the same against Barack Obama? Or against members of Obama’s administration, or against Democrats in general?
Right. The reaction from the media and the left would be quite different.
Instead, we get this:
Last month a professor called for the public assassination of the GOP house

Right: “Not one media outlet reported this …”
But wait; there’s more.
Look at this, from the Daily Caller again:
“Griffin was not the only one who wished for Republicans to die over the repeal legislation of Obamacare. Journalist Kurt Eichenwald “wished death” on Republicans on May 5.”
