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 […]

Prof. Erik Loomis clarifies: ‘Those were historical dildos we talked about’

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 […]

Professors decry ‘witch hunt,’ rally around Erik Loomis in name of ‘academic freedom’


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.

Liberal journo Mike Elk sad about death threats to death threat connoisseur Erik Loomis

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 […]

Flashback: Erik Loomis criticized Sarah Palin for ‘violent rhetoric’

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 […]

Sick retweet by disgraced Rhode Island prof Erik Loomis: ‘Hunt down Dick Morris like a pig’

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?

Report: David Shuster joining Al Jazeera America; Tweeters note perfect match


Al Jazeera America has already poached Ali Velshi and Soledad O’Brien from CNN, and the latest report is that the network that will begin airing on some outlets in the U.S. next month has signed former CNN lefty anchor David Shuster. As Neil Clark Warren of might say, some tweeters see multiple dimensions of […]

S.E. Cupp ‘innocuously’ says GOP needs cover to call Limbaugh ‘crazy, stupid, dangerous’

In issuing a sweeping indictment of Limbaugh as “dangerous,” Cupp is only hurting the conservative cause.

CNN host Howard Kurtz: Should we care about Chris Dorner’s love of CNN (and MSNBC) hosts?


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 […]
