“Such expressions go against our values.”
Georgetown is obviously hoping this controversy will just fade away over time. They can’t change the fact that the professor wished a horrible death on certain people over race and politics.

Georgetown Professor’s Profane Tweet Elicits Tepid Response From University
A Georgetown University faculty member who tweeted last week that “entitled white men” deserve “miserable deaths while feminists laugh” knew that her critique of the Brett M. Kavanaugh hearings would bring out the haters. And she wasn’t surprised when angry critics demanded that she be fired.
C. Christine Fair, an associate professor of security studies, said that her goal was to make people — white men, in particular — uncomfortable, and that the outrage she drew proved she had succeeded.
Fair, who has frequently tested the limits of free speech at her Jesuit-affiliated university, said she had been enraged after “watching these men protect his bro-culture privilege to behave the way he did.”
To expect her to “watch what I did on Thursday and use the Queen’s language is preposterous,” she added in an interview with The Chronicle on Tuesday.
Also on Tuesday the university’s president, John J. DeGioia, issued a statement that acknowledged the right to freedom of expression but condemned “violent imagery, profanity, and insensitive labeling” of people based on sex or ethnicity. Her name never appears in the statement…
The president’s statement, issued in response to her tweet, said that while faculty members’ freedom of speech is protected, “this does not mean the university endorses the content of their expression. We can and do strongly condemn the use of violent imagery, profanity, and insensitive labeling of individuals based on gender, ethnicity, or political affiliation in any form of discourse. Such expressions go against our values.”
