Add one to “people I want to punch in the nose”…

…but won’t, because that’s not how we deal with things like this.
Besides, the real target is never the nose but the jackass wearin’ it.

The Ohio State University assistant director of residence life allegedly expressed sympathy for Somali stabber Abdul Razak Ali Artan in a bizarre Facebook post Monday that has since gone viral.

Stephanie Clemons Thompson urged her followers to have compassion for Artan after he expressed a desire “to kill a billion infidels” and then tried to kill as many as he could at OSU. She also urged people to “think of the pain he must have been in,” ….

She has since, apparently, deleted her entire Facebook account.* [She] was recently honored by OSU with an award for being an “Outstanding First Year Advocate,” however the university webpage touting her achievement has since been deleted.** [story]

Sometimes, just the mental image of punching a jackass in the nose brings a smile to my face.
My icy outrage melts away in the cozy, puppy-like warmth of virtual violence.

(What? Well, okay, yeah, that and I can’t actually reach ‘er from here.)
* ** Woo, looks like the ol’ Memory Hole has been fed, and the jackass is now an “unperson.”

    Most of my life’s frustrations stem from expecting some day for people to get a fucking clue because I just can’t fathom how far we’ve gone without it happening………

    1. Hyphenated three word name – check
    2. Worked in Office of Diversity and Inclusion – check
    3. Active in Black Lives Matter – check
    4. Black, African American, Person of Color, Negro, take yer pick – check

    And not a word of sympathy for the slashed and struck innocent victims.
    Did she “think of the pain they must have been in.” Of course not. She’s paid to pick the scabs of racism.
    Racist bitch.
    BTW, I looked up the OU Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
    They have 69 employees, up to the level of Provost and several Deputy and Assistant Provosts.
    I don’t think the mechanical engineering faculty at my alma mater with 32,000 students was that big.
    Ya know what? It’s a big, fat, make-work department for 69 scab-picking people whose degrees might otherwise at best get them a job as a burger flipper.
    They’d be more useful at that.

    ^ One assumes she visited the victims at the hospital to show her sympathy to them first.
    I at least hope she checked on their ethnicities.
