(The Breakdown) – The Twitter account of C. Christine Fair, a far left liberal professor from Georgetown University known for incendiary remarks, has been suspended following a tweet which called for the death of white men and for women so subsequently castrate the corpses and “feed them to swine.”
Twitter has suspended, and perhaps permanently banned, the account of Georgetown Professor C. Christine Fair, apparently due to this tweet: pic.twitter.com/wN2OvrgRcA

Fair’s original tweet was in response to a blistering critique by Sen. Lindsey Graham of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s treatment of Brett Kavanaugh.
After much outrage and many comments from concerned readers, Twitter suspended the account for an unknown period of time.

In a statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation, Georgetown University said Fairs views are her own and do not belong to the University.
“The views of faculty members expressed in their private capacities are their own and not the views of the University,” the university said. “Our policy does not prohibit speech based on the person presenting ideas or the content of those ideas, even when those ideas may be difficult, controversial or objectionable. While faculty members may exercise freedom of speech, we expect that their classrooms and interaction with students be free of bias and geared toward thoughtful, respectful dialogue.”
Twitter has been lambasted due to their highly biased shadow banning issues which they have faced recently and the outright account deletion of media figures such as Alex Jones, and the suspension of Paul Joseph Watson, and James Woods.
It is not, however, a win for free speech since the desire is to allow all people to express their viewpoints regardless of the fowl content. We as a people must be willing to read or hear something that is highly offensive to our personal sensibilities causing us to respond and oppose rather than cover up and hide.
