Remember Georgetown professor Christine Fair? You know, the lady who said “look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes,” as reported by Campus Reform. Well, after that woke take, Twitter suspended her — multiple times — and took away her blue check mark.
After Fair’s first suspension, Twitter told me on background that it suspended her by accident. She was reinstated hours later and showed no sign of slowing down with her incendiary tweets, but a little something was missing from her account. You know, that little blue check pat on the head from the Big Tech establishment and then, she was suddenly suspended again.
She’s back again now but You know, here’s the thing: in my ideal world, Twitter wouldn’t suspend nearly anyone. In my ideal world, Twitter would use the blue check mark to show that someone’s a public figure, which Christine undoubtedly is. But the right seems to get disproportionately slapped with suspensions and the blue check mark has been weaponized to punish wrongthink so we’ve just gotta work with what we’ve got.
Anyway, Georgetown defended its professors’ right to free speech in a statement to me, but said “we expect their classrooms and interaction with students to be free of bias and geared toward thoughtful, respectful dialogue.”
And there’s the rub, for how do you know Christine isn’t penalizing conservative or libertarian…or pretty much any student who isn’t insane?
