A college professor recently made a Facebook post that is going viral, and it’s very disturbing.Johnny Eric Williams weighed in on the Alexandria shooting where GOP members of Congress were the targets of a shooting by a radical leftist, saying first responders should’ve let them die because they were white.
Ah, smell the tolerance?
According to The Blaze:
Less than one week after a gunman opened fire on more than a dozen Republican members of Congress on a Virginia baseball field, a Connecticut college professor said that first responders to the shooting should have “let them die” because they are white.In a Facebook post Saturday, Trinity College professor Johnny Eric Williams shared a Medium post titled, “Let them f***ing die,” Campus Reform reported.
The Medium post that Williams shared on Facebook was authored under the pseudonym “Son of Baldwin.” The piece urged blacks and other minority citizens to let white people die if they are ever in need of help.
If you see them drowning. If you see them in a burning building. If they are bleeding out in an emergency room. If the ground is crumbling beneath them. If they are in a park and they turn their weapons on each other: do nothing…Least of all put your life on the line for theirs, and do not dare think doing so, putting your life on the line for theirs, gives you reason to feel celestial. Save the life of those that would kill you is the opposite of virtuous. Let. Them. F***ing. Die. And smile a bit when you do.Williams offered further provocative and incendiary comments along with the link to the Medium post.
“It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be ‘white’ will not do, put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and their white supremacy system. #LetThemF***ingDie,” Williams wrote, Campus Reform reported.In a separate Facebook post, Williams said that he is “fed the f*** up with self-identified ‘white’s’ daily violence directed at immigrants, Muslims, and sexual and racially oppressed people. The time is now to confront these inhuman a**holes and end this now.”
Seems as if this fellow has a lot of pent up rage and frustration. Perhaps seeking some professional help is a step that’s in order at this point.
What is truly amazing, is on Williams’ Facebook page he has a post about receiving death threats and is appalled by such behavior and acts as if he’s shocked that his calls for genocide based on a person’s skin color would elicit such a barbaric response.
The truth is, death threats and calls for violence are never right, regardless of who is being targeted. No one deserves such treatment and both sides need to condemn such action with a fervent zeal.
It’s okay to be passionate about an issue, to disagree with a policy or position held by another, but wisdom says to hold your tongue, think through your response, develop a well thought out argument, then finally communicate your views in such a way that others feel safe in joining the conversation.
That’s how free speech works and opens the door for cultural advancements. Maybe Williams will mature and grasp that in the days ahead.
