Thirty University of Rochester students held a protest Wednesday afternoon in the classroom of a UR economics professor who said that Rush Limbaugh provided the “requisite mockery” of a Georgetown University law student.
In a blog post, Professor Steven Landsburg said he essentially agreed with Limbaugh stance, writing, “Her position — which is what’s at issue here — deserves [no respect] whatsoever. It deserves to only be ridiculed, mocked and jeered. To treat it with respect would be a travesty.”
Professor Landsburg claimed he did not agree with the word “slut” that Rush used to describe law student Sandra Fluke, but he said– wait for it– “prostitute” was “a far better word , but “extortionist” was “the right word”:
The right word for that is something much closer to “extortionist”. Or better yet, “extortionist with an overweening sense of entitlement”. Is there a single word for that?
There he is, GOP, your librul elitist college professor. What a snob.
