A University of Mississippi associate professor has sparked national outrage after he encouraged people to physically accost lawmakers in restaurants.
“Don’t just interrupt a Senator’s meal, y’all,” Associate Professor James Thomas wrote on Twitter. “Put your whole damn fingers in their salads. Take their apps and distribute them to the other diners. Bring boxes and take their food home with you on the way out.”

They don’t deserve your civility

The professor also has an issue with white people.
I think I’m just gonna start calling the cops on white people. They’re clearly the greatest threats to national security and individual liberties.

U.S. Senate candidate and state Sen. Chris McDaniel tore into the far-left professor — calling him “another low-life liberal.”
“It’s time for disciplinary action,” he wrote on Facebook.
Ole Miss did not call out the professor by name, but Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter did condemn a “recent social media post by a UM faculty member,” the Daily Mississippian reported.
“A recent social media post by a UM faculty member did not reflect the values articulated by the university, such as respect for the dignity of each individual and civility and fairness. While I passionately support free speech, I condemn statements that encourage acts of aggression. I urge all members of the Ole Miss community to demonstrate civility and respect for others and to honor the ideal of diversity of thought that is a foundational element of the academy,” Vitter’s Facebook post read.
I wonder how Professor Thomas would respond if a freedom-loving patriot smacked around his arugula?
