Jeff Goldstein Gets Some Nasty Email
And after revealing those emails and the identity of the author (a professor at the University of Arizona named Deb Frisch), Protein Wisdom is down as the result of two DDOS attacks. Michelle Malkin explains:
Jeff Goldstein, who has been such an inspiration and good friend ever since I started blogging, is under attack. He–and his toddler son–have been the subject of abuse and harassment from a nutball leftist troll, who appears to hold a prominent teaching position at the University of Arizona and seems to have a history of abusing and stalking blogs.Some of the messages she left for Jeff:
“I’d like to hear more about your “tyke” by the way. Girl? Boy? Toddler? Teen? Are you still married to the woman you ephed to give birth to the tyke?
Tell all, bro!”
“[…] as I said elsewhere, if I woke up tomorrow and learned that someone else had shot you and your “tyke” it wouldn’t slow me down one iota. You aren’t “human” to me.”
” Ooh. Two year old boy. Sounds hot. You live in Colorado, I see. Hope no one Jon-Benets your baby.
Are you still married to the woman you humped to produce the toddler? ”
Give your pathetic progeny (I sure hope that mofo got good genes from his mama!) a big fat tongue-filled kiss from me! LOTS AND LOTS OF SALIVA from Auntie MOONBAT, if you don’t mind!
Somehow, Jeffy boy, I think you get off on the possibility of Frenching your pathetic progeny, even if it is a boy. You seem like a VERY, VERY sick mofo to me, bro.
Lovely, huh? But in an interesting turn of events, Prof. Frisch has posted this at her personal blog:
I wrote some inflammatory comments at a blog by a guy named Jeff Goldstein called protein wisdom that infuriated many bloggers and commenters. Many of these bloggers emailed my boss at the University of Arizona to tell on me.
In hindsight, the things I wrote were over the line of nastiness. I apologize to Mr. Goldstein.
I have resigned from the University of Arizona so there is no need for other enraged people to write to administrators there.
Some blogs have posted comments that I perceive to be physically threatening. I have contacted the FBI and the Pajamas Media staff to determine how to proceed with this aspect of this unbelievable experience.
My intention in this post is to de-escalate the situation. The comments that started this all were nasty, not threatening. But I feel very threatened by the response (my emphasis).
Jeff – I lost my job. You won. Could you call off the troops?
Deb, you feel threatened? Jeez. Hold on a minute and let me get the smallest violin in the world so I can play you a tune.
Anyway, due to the shear craziness of her emails to Jeff, I’d say the accuracy of this “white flag” is dubious, at best, until it’s confirmed that Professor Potty Mouth really did relinquish her position. Michelle’s trying to do that right now and I’ll update as soon as I have anything.
UPDATE: According to Professor PM:
The point of resigning is that it is something I was thinking of doing anyway. I want to stay in Eugene, OR where moonbats rule instead of living in Tucson, AZ where moonbats are in the minority. So my point is not that you should feel sorry for me but rather you should lay off the stalking like the emails to the head of the psych department at the University of Arizona, the nasty, threatening comments at the various rightwingnut blogs that have jumped on this “story.”
The department head said he would deal with this on Monday. No one has formally accepted my resignation yet. I’ve just submitted it. I understand there are many, many people out there who will want to know how the University of Arizona responds to my offer to give up my temporary gig teaching psychology next year. I will let you all know on Monday or Tuesday.
I’m just asking y’all to leave me alone and go stalk another moonbat.
Off to Oregon to indoctrinate students there, I suppose. I just hope they’re ready for her 9/11 conspiracy theories.
That having been said, Professor PM claims she’s receiving threatening emails. Who knows if she really is or not, but the email she posts here certainly isn’t threatening. Condescending and mean, yeah. But not threatening. It’s wise to keep in mind though that anyone sending threatening emails to her is no better than she.
UPDATE (James Joyner): Jeralyn Merritt weighs in with the definitive word in blogfights: “If you don’t like Jeff’s writings, don’t read them. Or read them and disagree with his arguments.”
UPDATE (James Joyner): Protein Wisdom is back up, by the way. Jeff has some thoughts on the Frisch matter and pie. Mmmmm . . . pie.
