Stanford Law Protester Screamed At Conservative Judge: “We hope your daughters get raped!”

Stanford Law Protester Screamed At Conservative Judge: “We hope your daughters get raped!”

From everything the shout-down of Judge Stuart Kyle Duncan reveals, there is a deep culture of intolerance at Stanford Law School. We don’t want the law students shouting down Judge Duncan and wishing rape upon his daughters on the bench, but no doubt many will end up there long after this incident is forgotten..

By now you’ve heard me go on and on and on how the shout-down of 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Stuart Kyle Duncan at Stanford Law School revealed in many ways a deep cultural problem that went far beyond the antics of Stanford Law School Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Tirien Steinbach. Assessing the situation, I concluded that The Stanford Law School Culture, Not The Diversity Dean, Is The Problem (but I repeat myself).

Audio of the shout-down covering the time period prior to the start of the video showed that the disruption was as bad if not worse than expected.

But it gets worse. Yesterday Ed Whelan tweeted:

As Judge Duncan was on his way to the classroom for the event, students lined up on both sides of a narrow hallway yelled vicious things at him, including “we hope your daughters get raped.”

Stanford Fed Soc president Tim Rosenberger just revealed that on podcast recording.

The podcast was not live at the time of the tweet, but is now. You should watch the whole thing, I’ve marked it to start just before Rosenberger made the statement quoted by Whelan, describing how Judge Duncan walked through a gauntlet of protesters to enter the classroom:

‘They were … yelling pretty horrible and personal things. They hoped that his daughters would be raped because he had help [inaudible] through Dobbs ‘ [the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade]

Judge Duncan, in an Op-Ed this afternoon in The Wall Street Journal described the experience, including the shouts about his daughters being raped, My Struggle Session at Stanford Law School (emphasis added):

“When I arrived, the walls were festooned with posters denouncing me for crimes against women, gays, blacks and “trans people.” Plastered everywhere were photos of the students who had invited me and fliers declaring “You should be ASHAMED,” with the last word in large red capital letters and a horror-movie font. This didn’t seem “collegial.” Walking to the building where I would deliver my talk, I could hear loud chanting a good 50 yards away, reminiscent of a tent revival in its intensity. Some 100 students were massed outside the classroom as I entered, faces painted every color of the rainbow, waving signs and banners, jeering and stamping and howling. As I entered the classroom, one protester screamed: “We hope your daughters get raped!”

Judge Duncan went on to describe the heckling and the disruption, if you’ve listened to the audio and seen the video, you’ve heard what it was like.

But I’m circling back to the cultural problem at Stanford Law School. It’s not one DEI Dean, or one student wishing rape upon the daughters of someone who disagrees with them as to whether abortion is a federal constitutional right or something to be decided by the states (which is all Dobbs did, was send it to the states).

From everything the Judge Duncan shout-down reveals, there is a deep culture of intolerance at Stanford Law School. That would be bad enough, but unfortunately it is a glimpse into the future of the court systems and prosecutors offices, which will be stocked with many of the Stanford Law Students howling at Judge Duncan. It may be too late to recover the culture in law schools, but support needs to be given to the brave conservative students who themselves run the gauntlet every day.

It’s also why the judiciary matters so much, and the battles over judges are so important. We don’t want the law students shouting down Judge Duncan and wishing rape upon his daughters on the bench, but no doubt many will end up there long after this incident is forgotten.

The protesters are mentally-ill narcissists (and likely there on affirmative action admission policies). But their handlers are the real Hitlers.

What the Stanford Commie Kids aren’t counting on is that if they pull their antics in any court presided over by a judge worth his/her salt they’ll be quickly removed with a strongly worded ethics complaint to their state bar following them on the way out.

    No, that won’t happen.

    These ‘law students’ will be smart enough to know when they can and can’t do this. They’ll push the boundaries in ways other than in a courtroom presided over by a judge worth the salt.

    JimWoo in reply to MarkJ. | March 17, 2023 at 11:34 pm

    We can only hope. But what if the judge is on their side.

      Gosport in reply to JimWoo. | March 18, 2023 at 2:17 am

      Or eventually, they are the judge,,,

        Subotai Bahadur in reply to Gosport. | March 18, 2023 at 4:28 pm

        By that time [and it may not be long] “trials” will only the ceremony wherein the state imposes whatever punishment it wants on the individual, with no statutory crime being necessary.

        Subotai Bahadur

          We are already getting the preview of that in Swampington with the J6 protestors.

          ALPAPilot in reply to Subotai Bahadur. | March 19, 2023 at 10:07 am

          That would be Tuesday when they arrest Donald Trumps for saying that the payment to Stormy Daniels was a legal expense. I would like to know how that expense should have been describe to comply witht the law.

2smartforlibs | March 17, 2023 at 9:22 pm

Terrorist threat.

Subotai Bahadur | March 17, 2023 at 9:23 pm

First, you have to realize that these Leftists were not “kidding” or speaking rhetorically. What they said is what they mean.

Second, they are not going to be converted to our culture by moral or rhetorical suasion. They are what they are, and what they are are mortal enemies of our civilization.

Those are the boundaries we have to deal with.

Subotai Bahadur

A consistent hallmark feature of socialist liberals is that they rely on someone else to inflict retributiion or punishment someone they do not agree with.

This mental defect is what identifies them for their perversity.

I know this is off-topic, but could you please post or arrange for someone to post a thread addressing the specifics of exactly what crime Trump is supposedly about to be indicted in New York for.

I follow the news pretty darn closely. Yet I don’t recall ever seeing a story addressing this in any detail. Just the suggestion it has something to do with a $130,000 payment he made to Stormy Daniels, who at one time alleged (and then subsequently recanted the claim that) she had had sex with him.

I would love enlightenment on this subject, and I am sure I am not the only one.

    His crime is running for , and winning the Presidency of the United Stares of America, as a Republican , and not being part of the cabel, but America First

    He must be destroyed so no one EVER, runs again without permission and never can they leave the reservation

    They will never stop

    And he did this for us…

    caseoftheblues in reply to Wisewerds. | March 18, 2023 at 9:21 am

    Agree would really appreciate an article explaining….unfortunately the type of people who are law students at Stanford are already judges and DAs in New York….

Imagine a judicial system steeped in woke.

Imagine a health care system gone woke.

Imagine the military becoming woke.

Imagine … oops, that’s right. Unless we can “define” woke to their satisfaction, we aren’t allowed to criticize their agenda. And they keep singing they can’t get no definition satisfaction. We’re gonna be under their thumbs.

    WR Luke,
    I don’t have to imagine that. I see it every day.

    Ironclaw in reply to LukeHandCool. | March 18, 2023 at 10:49 pm

    We got a preview of a health care system gone woke during the “pandemic” where they wanted you to wear a mask that accomplishes nothing but discomfort for the wearer and then they insisted you should take an injection that has no positive benefits for anyone who gets it but might damn well kill you.

The sheer chutzpah:

“Stanford Law protesters demand to have names redacted from news reports: ‘Not how the First Amendment works.'”

They’ve showed us what they fear. Publicize their names and faces for all to see.

Feminist/masculinist/social progressive? Left of humanity, dignity, and agency? #HateLovesAbortion… the wicked solution.

Liberals: We won’t tolerate intolerence. Yet they are the ones who are intolerant. Go figure.

    Groty in reply to navyvet. | March 18, 2023 at 8:09 am

    Herbert Marcuse, who co-founded the Frankfurt School ideology that became the “intellectual” Bible for the New Left radicals in the ’60s and is the basis of most of the Left’s dysfunctional philosophy today, said to be tolerant of views on the Left, but intolerant of the Right.

    In the 21st century the Left now describes ANY idea they disagree with as not just Right Wing, but Far Right. So their grounding in Frankfurt School nonsense means they must be uncompromisingly intolerant to any view they do not agree with.

    The tragic part is that American conservatism, properly understood, is not even right wing. It’s what used to be known as Classical Liberalism.

    But the Left redefines words and perverts language to achieve political goals. So now the traditional Left/Right continuum is no longer recognizable.

    MajorWood in reply to navyvet. | March 18, 2023 at 1:30 pm

    They understand irony as well as Alanis.

That dean should have been fired the next day.

We need a group of people who befriend these people and get them caught for the felonies they are almost certain to commit.

Rape and threats thereof is how infidel populations are kept in line in Islamic countries.

I am quite dumbfounded by what LI considers legal type news. A judge gets dissed and it’s worth multiple stories, yet hundreds are having a bastardized legal system used as a persecution tool against them for having unpopular views or being in our purported lower classes and nary a word from LI. Trump and Alex Jones have been harassed with legal actions for with the statute of limitations have passed, 1/6 defendants have been pre-trial jailed for over two years for the charge of parading, many have had medical treatment denied, their right to a speedy trial guaranteed in the Constitution and the Speedy Trial Act of 1974 obliterated and LI goes on about some woman that couldn’t speak at a school board meeting. Is it because the writers at LI feel that white trash Trump supporters are getting what they deserve? Bannon, Jones, et al, have been denied a defense in their court cases, and in the case of Jones, he was told to answer all questions with either, “yes”, “no”, or “I don’t know” or face contempt charges. But I assume that since the aforementioned don’t attend the same cocktail parties as Jacobson, their plight is dismissed with a joke.

    CommoChief in reply to MarkS. | March 18, 2023 at 7:53 am


    LI has made extensive space for Jan 6 coverage both contemporaneous and follow up as new events occurred.

    The items you object to and referenced about the judicial shortcomings facing some of the J6 defendants are important. Those rulings were made in large part by a judiciary influenced by woke BS. Others were made in fear and retribution, at least IMO. The establishment doesn’t like to be faced with the prospect of the peasants becoming upset enough to object in person at the seat of power.

    The treatment of Judge Duncan at Stanford is emblematic of the next wave of the legal profession. Remember that Stanford produces graduates who will enter the profession at the upper tier of power. They will go on to become the US Attorneys, SR staff at DoJ, partners at influential white shoe law firms and comprise the next generation of faculty.

    If politics is downstream of culture we can view our Nation’s political future quite clearly in this episode. That’s why it is very worthy of the coverage received. None of that diminishes the plight of some J6 defendants who are experiencing the beta test version of our future justice system that the Stanford Students would prefer and will no doubt deliver in time.

    amwick in reply to MarkS. | March 18, 2023 at 8:54 am

    There is so much bs going on, no single website could cover it all. I think the good professor and the writers here do a bang up job. But, how/what they pick what to write about,, that is not my business. I am sure it isn’t cocktail parties..

    stella dallas in reply to MarkS. | March 18, 2023 at 11:10 pm

    The topics you mention are important. They have been discussed here but could certainly benefit from more discussion. Please give us a link when you develop your website.

The Packetman | March 18, 2023 at 8:12 am

Like I keep saying … beatings.

AF_Chief_Master_Sgt | March 18, 2023 at 2:33 pm

Oh puh-leeeeze!

Cry me a river about how the mean people treated a conservative professor. This happens every day with conservative faculty, conservative students, and conservative employees at many jobs – ALL DAY LONG, EVERY DAY.

Yet this very platform will print the vile hatred that spews from these people.

But let one commenter on these pages share the same type of vitriol and ridicule toward any of these haters on the left, and this site will rush to remove that commentary.

So go ahead. Whine all you wish. But this site has no more will to fight against the lawlessness that pervades the very core of our academic, media, and political foundations.

As long as everyone here toes the line and spouts acceptable commentary, they are welcome. But make any comment that insults or points out the hated of the left, and off you go.

I continue to say that the right will be hanged in the streets and be happy for it, but only if the rope is clean.


    You wrote: “But let one commenter on these pages share the same type of vitriol and ridicule toward any of these haters on the left, and this site will rush to remove that commentary.”

    This is untrue. We remove only ad hominem comments directed at other LI readers; we do not remove vitriol or ridicule directed outside our readership/commenter base–i.e. at the left (or right) generally and/or specific public persons. 😛

    We do, however, remove threats of/calls to violence, blatant racism/sexism, antiSemitism, and the like. Always have. Always will.

      BierceAmbrose in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | March 18, 2023 at 8:32 pm

      Demonstably true; it’s obvious.

      — Ad homenim to other players here not Ok.

      — Sliming public figures who deserve it, or who don’t as long as it’s entertaining is fine.

      — Anything potentially criminal, or might give the bots and flying monkeys enough excuse to try to shut the place down, don’t do that.

      AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | March 19, 2023 at 7:18 am

      FS. I love to read your articles, and have a profound respect for your efforts to expose the left for what it is.

      But if you actually believe that comments are not removed only for violating the rules that you mention, you are sadly mistaken.

      I don’t make ad hominem against LI, readers, commenters, etc. But I have made very direct comments about the people on the left who seek to destroy the minds of our children.

      THOSE comments have been removed.

      So I stand firm.

      Many conservatives believe that we must fight using MoQ rules, and despise getting down into the mud to fight.

      So, yes. Conservatives will accept their demise as long as the rope used against them is pristine.

        Honestly, Chief, I know nothing about this at all. I’m not the only one who mans the mod station, but the only thing I can think of is that your strong statements involved some sort of violence. We all feel very strongly about what is being done to children–I write of it in the strongest possible terms, but solutions that involve violence are not permitted here. If that’s not what you are thinking of in terms of comment removal, drop me a note via email, and I will look into it further.

        Thank you for your kind words. They mean a great deal to me. I think the world of you, as well, so please let me help resolve this for you.

    BierceAmbrose in reply to AF_Chief_Master_Sgt. | March 18, 2023 at 8:29 pm

    Wow. Looks like I’ll have to up my game.

I think that everyone can reach their own opinion regarding what is best for society regarding reproductive rights, twitter, etc.

However, Stanford’s written policies prohibit the “heckler’s veto.” It is essential that the authorities at Stanford go through all of the photos and identify as many students as possible who actually disrupted the lecture. (Even better, students should be given 72 hours to turn themselves in.) Stanford cannot afford to allow this “civil disobedience” to go without holding the specific students accountable.

“We hope your daughters get raped!”

More inadvertent evidence of progressive campus rape culture?

    BierceAmbrose in reply to Steven Brizel. | March 19, 2023 at 4:08 pm

    /Serious for a moment…

    I don’t know how it plays out. BUT, the same info-movement tech n mechanics that let the Central Scrutinizers try harder — Frank Zappa’s more wild n psychedelic musings as predictive prophecy: CS is from his “opera” Joe’s Garage, which includes federally forced medical treatments creating physical mutations in an underclass. I became puzzled after making a Dystopian SchFi list the other day, to find that each item was either perfectly fulfilled or didn’t go far enough. Literally nothing was left out of current events.

    Clearly, I have tiny brain; I’m just not radical enough.

    Back on point … I can’t tell whether central orchestration, or ad-hoc, generative events wins out, BUT both are enabled by the same tech advances making info movement easier, faster, broader, cheaper, because data-wrangling became all that.

    It plays out in other systems, like more info from the infotech for stupid, reactive, or damaged people doesn’t lead to better results. So, keep them dumb to keep them down, no matter what they know. There’s not one force at play, nor in one system. BUT, all those forces n system are at play in many directions.

    The rate of injected change continues to increase, too, which is hard to account for, let alone predict. (Bucky Fuller called this around 19172-ish.)

    The big-uns can come for Parler when its existence becomes inconvenient. BUT, it’s literally common knowledge that this was done, by whom, and how. The immediate, and broad deconstruction of self-serving in the SVB bail out came in part from that history with Parler. Who’s in the cool kids’ club being taken care of, because that’s how it works. (Can’t have Cali-Gov losing money on his wineries. He might not make it to Prezzy if that happens — we don’t like em poor.)

    Meanwhile, they can’t seem to get Rumble and Substack. Smaller players in hits and servers, like LI, get swarmed, but that’s a known cost of doing business, and the Flying Monkeys don’t automatically win. The tech they try to use to own the game also makes it harder to grab all of it.

    We’d have some predictive models from The Science if the funded centers on complex, adaptive systems did their actual jobs. Looking at you, Santa Fe Institute. BUT, they demonstrated the results of captive science long before The Covid Gnome was exposed. (Also long after Soviet Lysenkoism, but nobody learns hard stuff the first time.)

    While I don’t know how this is going to play out, I am happy and sad that my personal history taught me to be comfortable with consequential uncertainty. I feel bad for the brittle ones, grown to be that way.

    / End Musing

It starts at the top, look there. Trustees, Overseers, Regents, Directors – whatever the name, it starts there. Steinbach is an unkempt mediocrity who is being used by these people and their carefully chosen key senior administrators at Stanford.. She is someone, probably with no particular or limited personal achievements in the world outside the safe, cloistered, controlled atmosphere of the academy, protected by the institution’s decorum and the decorum of the institutions of the visitor.

Her principal assets, hence value to the institution, are a lack of any real sense of self awareness and gullibility. She has learned a vocabulary, words and their definitions, but lacks empathy. She has learned to moderate her tone and behavior in the presence of others but lacks respect for and understanding of genuine achievement. She does believe herself to be an equal where she is not, She is the classic dupe.

Last week Steinbach was to Stanford as Stelter and Acosta were to CNN, less so perhaps as they were routinely public performers. Look to the top for the true engineers and manipulators.
