Matthew Boyle at Breitbart.com has the story of Langston University Professor Larry Van Meter’s obscenity-strewn rant at Arkansas Rep. Tim Griffin. The best part? Van Meter is an English professor.From the Breitbart article:
Larry Van Meter, an associate professor of English at the school, visited Griffin’s Google Plus page Tuesday, leaving comments criticizing him and his GOP colleagues in the U.S. Congress...No word on whether he used the school's computer and internet system to post this, but that's hardly relevant since a tenure professor in 'liberal art' can justify almost any nonsense as part of his job description. Besides, "fuck" is an English word.
In response to Griffin’s information, Van Meter lashed out with a profanity-laced post. Van Meter told Griffin “fuck you,” said “you Republicans are evil,” and said Griffin was a “graft-taking motherfucker,” among other comments.
That post, in its entirety, follows:
"Protect individuals with pre-existing conditions against discrimination"
--Attention, you graft-taking motherfucker: that's Obamacare.
--Any ‘market-based' solution to the problem of people not getting the healthcare they need is rooted in the fantasy that "the market" will respond to competition with lower prices and better services. How's that worked for you for the last 15 decades? Tell that to my brother (broken neck, broken back, Scarlet Fever), whose conditions have made it impossible for him to get healthcare AT ALL until now.
--Your pals in the insurance industry have lots of competition, but they're happy with their profit margins, so they're NOT GOING TO LOWER their prices.
--Holy shit, you Republicans are evil.
--Oh yeah, Fuck you.
