From a recent op-ed piece:
"The NRA advocates armed rebellion against the duly elected government of the United States of America. That's treason, and it's worthy of the firing squad. ... To turn the song lyric they so love to quote back on them, "We'll put a boot in your ---, it's the American way." Except it won't be a boot. It'll be an M1A Abrams tank, supported by an F22 Raptor squadron with Hellfire missiles. Try treason on for size. See how that suits."
He attacks his opposition as "knuckle-dragging Cretan talk," although what he has against the inhabitants of Crete is unclear.
His page at RateMyProfessors gives the real humor, tho:
"Class was supposed to be journalism, not liberal political rant 101."
"Prof Swindell needs to audit some American history courses. His understanding of Lincoln's motivation during the Civil War is elementary school level."
"Pretty full of himself and thinks his material is more demanding than what it is. He genuinely cares about his students though. Look for the lesson in between the bouts of political ranting."
"He's ADHD and sprays when he talks so sit 5-10 feet out of range."
Nothing like educating future journalists....
Another "journalist" who disparages the First Amendment.
What's the right metaphor/simile here? Sawing off the limb one is sitting on?

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I don't think he even knows what "advocate" means. Someone who advocates knowing first aid in the event of serious injury cannot be said to be advocating serious injury.
