Here’s A Little Irony

Dr. Nathan Jun, professor of philosophy at Midwestern State University (my Alma Mater), got his tail in a crack when he said something cocky and stupid on his Facebook page. He said,

“I want the entire world to burn until the last cop is strangled with the intestines of the last capitalist, who is strangled in turn with the intestines of the last politician.”

For now, let’s overlook the fact that he plagiarized words frequently attributed to Diderot, a French philosopher of the 18th century (although it seems the words were actually those of “a common Frenchman ‘who had no culture or education’.”)

The university, of course, defended his right to say what he wants—a privilege rarely afforded to those of us who are conservative and not cop haters —but the thing is that Jun apparently received many death threats and vandalism to his property.

Of course, I don’t advocate for anyone making death threats or committing crimes against someone for what he thinks or says. Admittedly, I’d like free speech to be granted to all Americans and not just liberals, leftists, and anarchists. But here comes the irony…

After a very wordy response from Jun concerning the local publicity surrounding his foolish, plagiarized thoughts, he had this to say about the vandalism:

“Everyone is welcome to tear me apart on social media, to call me (non-racist) names, to hate on me till their hearts are content. Make no mistake, however, that threats, vandalism, and hate speech are crimes that will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Professor Jun, I am so sorry for your discomfort and for the crimes being committed against you. Unfortunately, all the policemen in your area have been strangled with the intestines of all the capitalists in your area who, unfortunately, were strangled with the intestines of the last politicians in your area. It’s a grisly mess and I am certain that some fascist will get to the bottom of it. Consequently, there is no one left who cares or who can help you with your problem.
