Trump with Judge Brett KavanaughA professor who went on a tirade condemning "white men" during the Kavanaugh confirmation process has been relieved of her teaching duties. 

One of the milder comments Georgetown University professor Christine Fair tweeted was that white Republican senators "deserved miserable deaths while feminists laugh," Campus Reform reported.

Deroy Murdock of the conservative black leadership group Project 21, himself a Georgetown graduate, says Fair has freedom of speech but her comments went too far.

McConnell, Kavanaugh, Pence"This is ghastly, appalling, disgusting, inappropriate, grotesque," he says. "You would not expect these words to come out of the mind of a college professor much less a college professor at Georgetown."

The professor's Twitter account was suspended, then restored, but later suspended again.

Murdock says we're seeing more of this kind of rage from leftists.

"In addition to the political rage," he warns, "she seems to be anti-white, anti-male, and she's having fantasies --- if not actually advocating --- violence against these people."

 The university president, John DeGioia, said in a statement that Georgetown "strongly" condemns "the use of violent imagery, profanity, and insensitive labeling of individuals based on gender, ethnicity or political affiliation in any form of discourse. Such expressions go against our values."

A Georgetown spokesperson told Fox News Fair will now be traveling internationally for university research.
