As Twitchy reported this morning, University of Pennsylvania professor Anthea Butler embarked on a mind-bogglingly idiotic tirade in which she blamed the director of an anti-Islam film for yesterday’s atrocities in Egypt and Libya. Butler had tweeted about the importance of understanding that words have consequences, but she was clearly unable to face the consequences of her own words. Twitchy’s story resulted in a flood of righteous indignation:

One U.S. Army veteran reminded Butler of the sacrifices countless Americans have made in order to protect the rights of people like her to act like complete jackasses:
Boom. Couldn’t’ve said it better ourselves.
