Our inaugural Anti-Liberty Hall of Shame Award goes to University of Louisville professor Ricky Jones. The good professor, who is the chairman of the Pan-African Studies Department at the University of Louisville, recently wrote an op-ed article where he said that Republicans should “be forced to shut the hell up” about the Capitol Hill attack unless they denounce their former support of President Donald Trump.
“Republicans, you should not be allowed to speak about being shocked by President Donald Trump or the recent right-wing raid in Washington, D.C., for your words ring hollow,” wrote Jones.
“You all should be forced to shut the hell up unless whatever you have to say begins with, ‘I’m sorry,’” he wrote.
Advocating the use of force to silence political debate is the hallmark of political tyranny and for this reason Jones has earned his well-deserved spot in the Anti-Liberty Hall of Shame.
