Catholic Group Leader Calls For Liberal Academics To Be 'Taken Out And Shot'

Austin Ruse, president of the nonprofit research group Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, said on American Family Radio Wednesday that liberal leaders of “modern universities” should “all be taken out and shot.”

Ruse, filling in for host Sandy Rios, said during a discussion of a Duke University student recently outed as a porn actress that the “toxic stew of the modern university” includes women’s studies programs and sex education.

The radio segment has been unavailable on American Family Radio's website. See Ruse's comments below, captured by Right Wing Watch:

That is the nonsense that they teach in women’s studies at Duke University, this is where she learned this. The toxic stew of the modern university is gender studies, it’s “Sex Week,” they all have “Sex Week” and teaching people how to be sex-positive and overcome the patriarchy. My daughters go to a little private religious school and we pay an arm and a leg for it precisely to keep them away from all of this kind of nonsense. I do hope that they go to a Christian college or university and to keep them so far away from the hard left, human-hating people that run modern universities, who should all be taken out and shot.

Ruse, also a columnist for conservative news website Breitbart, went back on American Family Radio on Thursday,attacking Right Wing Watch. He called the liberal advocacy group “pajama boys” with “their panties all in a twist.”

He defended his remarks the day before as a “figure of speech” and said Democrats make “mistakes when they get into the ballot box” because they’re “really dumb ... low-information voters.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, added Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute to its list of “Active Anti-LGBT Groups” last month.
