Can you believe THIS?
How can this piece of work not already be FIRED?
Imagine being a parent paying tuition at this university and your child is following a professor that is saying House Republicans should be “LINED UP AND SHOT?”
The public contact page for his University is here.
An Art Institute of Washington professor recently declared that House Republicans “should be lined up and shot” for their passage of an Obamacare-replacement bill.
“They should be lined up and shot,” Professor John Griffin posted to his Facebook, according to a screenshot of the post obtained by Campus Reform, even clarifying that he wasn’t being hyperbolic, saying “that’s not hyperbole; blood is on their hands.”
In another post made just two minutes after his initial comments, Griffin blasted Republican lawmakers as “a fucking joke,” then turning his attention to their voters, whom he insulted as running “the gamut from monstrous to ignorant.”
Campus Reform reached out to the Art Institute of Washington for comment on Griffin’s claims, though multiple inquiries went unanswered.
Griffin himself did not respond to Campus Reform’s inquiries either, though his Facebook page states that he has been a professor at the institute since 2006, which is confirmed by the school’s academic catalog for the 2016-2017 year, listing Griffin as a full-time professor in the Media Arts and Animation Department.
After Campus Reform reached out to Griffin for comment, he edited the post to express his contrition for the “language [he] had used,” noting that he has a “pre-existing condition” that “without proper treatment, will eventually kill [him].”
Griffin basically defended his hate speech: the language is inappropriate and it’s “regretful” to call for murder, but he must fight on.
It is noteworthy that the new AHCA WOULD cover pre-existing conditions, from: The Week
Rules pertaining to pre-existing conditions have been a major point of critique for the House version of the AHCA, which may yet be substantially altered by the Senate. But, as The Washington Post explained in a fact-check piece Saturday, [Speaker] Ryan is correct: The AHCA allows states to seek a waiver so that a person who lives in one of those states who “has a lapse in health coverage for longer than 63 days; has a pre-existing condition; and purchases insurance on the individual or small-group market” can “face insurance rates that could be based on their individual condition, for one year.”
After that year, rates would once again be based on a community assessment, and states that avail themselves of the waiver must also offer a high-risk insurance pool to alleviate the financial burden.
