Death threat retweeter Erik Loomis claims Rush Limbaugh incites violence, accuses Michelle Malkin of hypocrisy
Talk about gall.
America’s nuttiest professor, Erik Loomis, loves teaching about the history of sexuality (see his now-deleted tweet above). Today, in the wake of an outcry about his anti-gun tweets (he still can’t see why anyone was offended), he is talking about dildos again. “To be clear, these are historical dildos we talked about. Actually read about to […]
The nutty professor has found defenders in academia, who worry that “his lack of tenure makes him vulnerable,” a state of affairs the rest of us face every day while arguing our beliefs in the public sphere.
While we at Twitchy do not advocate death threats against anyone, we do have to note the irony here. Apparently it is okay for Erik Loomis to retweet death threats against people he doesn’t like, but it’s bad when he receives them himself. Maybe Elk should think about whether gratuitous references to violence should be […]
University of Rhode Island professor Erik Loomis is defending his angry, violent tweets on the grounds that they were metaphorical. So to clarify, I want to make it blindingly clear that I did not call for the assassination of Wayne LaPierre. In my world, calling for someone’s head on a stick is a metaphor to hold […]
University of Rhode Island professor Erik Loomis landed himself in very hot water after retweeting a call to murder and demanding NRA chief Wayne LaPierre’s “head on a stick.” Loomis has since deleted his Twitter account, but unfortunately for him, the internet is forever. And from the looks of things, his mind is even sicker […]
What do you do when you are an assistant professor at a public university and you’ve been caught red-handed retweeting a tweet advocating murder? If you’re University of Rhode Island professor Erik Loomis, you delete your entire Twitter account. Here is what his page looked like about 20 minutes ago: Here is what it looks […]
“I feel like u would have to pay me to read politico.”
American colleges and universities protect diversity of thought. Ha ha. Just kidding!
Help a bro out!
Howard Kurtz is one media personality who wasn’t name-checked in alleged killer Christopher Dorner’s lengthy manifesto, so perhaps he has the perspective to ask if we should even care that Dorner praised Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley and Anderson Cooper. Should we care that he […]
Because to some on the anti-gun Left, the tragic murder of an American military hero is an opportunity to crack jokes and talk about “karma.” Vile.
Oh, will the injustice never end? Libs are all broken up over the DC Circuit’s Court of Appeals’ ruling that Obama’s non-recess “recess” appointments to the NLRB were unconstitutional. Scott LeMieux, who posts at the über-lefty Lawyers, Guns & Money blog (along with the illustrious Erik Loomis), channeled his outrageous outrage into a delightful little […]
David Shuster defends Prof. Erik ‘Head-on-a-Stick’ Loomis in tweet war with National Review’s Greg Pollowitz
Former MSNBC personality David Shuster was kind enough to host fanatical anti-gun professor Erik Loomis on his lightly watched Internet talk show today. The interview was nothing special, although it’s worth watching just for the shockingly bad graphics employed by Shuster’s “Take Action News.” A bit more interesting, however, was Shuster’s subsequent dialog with National Review’s Greg Pollowitz on […]

If you read that and thought of gun control advocate Erik Loomis, you are not alone. But what Chopra is really saying is that you are unfit to exercise your Second Amendments right if you passionately support that right. That did not sit well with some. @deepakchopra don’t make a blanket statement about people’s mental health. I would […]
When Erik Loomis called the National Rifle Association a “terrorist organization” and wished for the organization’s chief to be imprisoned, we cried foul.
Now Arianna Huffington is taking Loomis’ argument one step further.
