What is it with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos that has the left going so psychotic? Kieth Olbermann called her a “motherfucker” for no apparent reason and a lawyer from Austin, TX wished she would get raped. While Olbermann still has a job, if you can call podcasting from his mom’s basement a job, it looks like the asshole lawyer has been sent packing.
DeVos recently unf*cked some Obama rules that basically convicted anyone accused of sexual assault on a college campus without a trial or even an opportunity to defend the charges. What she did was restore due process that presumes innocence until proven guilty. It’s literally one of the foundations of our rights as Americans, but liberals have freaked out, accusing DeVos of legalizing rape. This is of course preposterous, which is something liberals specialize in: misunderstanding simple things and flying off the handle.
You’d think that a lawyer, even a liberal one, would have some respect for due process, but Robert Ranco sure doesn’t. In response to DeVos restoring the rule of law and individual civil rights, he tweeted this last Friday:
“I’m not wishing for it… but I’d be ok if [Betsy DeVos] was sexually assaulted,” wrote Ranco.
In another tweet he defended his hope that DeVos would be raped by saying, “Make the world more dangerous for my daughters – intentionally – and your well being is not my concern. Full stop.”
Ranco quickly deleted both his tweets and his entire Twitter account, but the Internet is forever and this outrageous statement got back to this employer. Ranco worked for the Austin-area Carson Law Firm. KVUE reports that firm has issued a statement about this:
For those of you who are wondering why this took so long, let me start by saying that this firm is a family and believe it’s up to me to show the same loyalty that I ask of my people. I wasn’t going to make a rash decision about a member of this family just to appease people on social media.
That said, I considered the health of everyone in our organization, promised my partners and my employees that we would act according to the values of our firm, and sat down to speak with Mr. Ranco.
In the end, we came to the same two conclusions: With over 150 employees – 75% or whom are women – anyone in our company advocating or even expressing apathy towards sexual assault is affront to all victims and a line that simply cannot be uncrossed.
This has been an enormous distraction that has taken us away from the mission of our firm, which is to care for and help people.
Understanding and accepting this, Rob is taking full responsibility and choosing to resign.
As a man of faith, believer in forgiveness, and longtime friend, it is my sincere hope that Rob with learn from this experience and go on to have a very successful career.
Wishing the Secretary of Education gets raped is a tough one on anyone’s resume. I’m not sure this liberal scumbag is going to find a new job all that easily. I guess he could go work for the ACLU. They hate conservatives and civil rights, so Robert Ranco would fit right in.
I have to say, I find it refreshing that liberals are starting to lose their jobs over the horrible things they say, because that certainly wasn’t the case during Obama’s reign of terror.
