It is often when someone is seriously sick, dying, or dead that left-wing extremists show their true colors, and that’s what we have here.
Breitbart News reports that, upon learning of the news that Queen Elizabeth II was seriously ill, a university professor took to social media to wish the Queen “excruciating” pain.
The professor who did so is Uju Anya of Carnegie Mellon University, a private university located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Anya is a professor in the school’s department of modern languages.
“May her pain be excruciating”
The news that captured the world on Thursday morning was that Queen Elizabeth II had been placed under medical supervision after her doctors became “concerned” about her health. Within hours, Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen, the longest-reigning British monarch in history, had passed away at the age of 96, after seven decades of being the Queen.
But, it was following the initial news, of the Queen’s poor health, that Anya posted several tweets attacking the Queen and wishing her a painful death.
“I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating,” Anya wrote. “May her pain be excruciating.”
She added in a subsequent tweet:
That wretched woman and her bloodthirsty throne have f***** generations of my ancestors on both sides of the family, and she supervised a government that sponsored the genocide my parents and siblings survived. May she die in agony.
The backlash, and Anya’s defiance
By this point, Anyu had received a lot of pushback from other social media users. One user asked her why she is wishing the Queen dead. Anya replied, “I’m not wishing her dead. She’s dying already. I’m wishing her an agonizingly painful death like the one she caused for millions of people.”
Another user responded to Anya’s rhetoric by writing, “this kind of post is not expected from a person of your level. This is not what you say even to your worst enemy,” to which Anya replied f*** you and your deference to genocidal colonizers.”
Later, after the Queen’s death, Anya posted another message, remaining defiant:
If anyone expects me to express anything but disdain for the monarch who supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family and the consequences of which those alive today are still trying to overcome, you can keep wishing upon a star.
Carnegie Mellon University has put out a statement on the matter, saying:
We do not condone the offensive and objectionable messages posted by Uju Anya today on her personal social media account. Free expression is core to the mission of higher education, however, the views she shared absolutely do not represent the values of the institution, nor the standards of discourse we seek to foster.
So, it looks as though this “professor” will be keeping her job. She is also being allowed to keep her Twitter account open, although at least one of her tweets has been censored by the platform.
