How Low Will a Moonbat Go?

If you guessed that they'd go as low as handing out death threats to a toddler, unfortunately, you're right:

From Froggy, posted at BlackFive:

We all know that lefty trolls can be a real inconvenience at times, but a very special troll named Deborah Frisch has taken trolling down a very dark road. Jeff Goldstein is the very insightful conservative blogger who writes at Protein Wisdom and Dr. Frisch (did I mention she's a psych[o] professor at the University of Arizona?) has repeatedly and quite disturbing levied DEATH
against Jeff's 2 year old child....
Some of the prof's lovely sentiments:

[...] 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!...
Just my two cents: The pathetic jeffy boy goldstein plays the jew
card 24/7. Didn’t you notice?


Goldstein Junior!

Doesn't much like anyone from Colorado, actually:

I am SHAKING, I tell you, SHAKING!!! in my boots at the prosect at an FBI and/or state police trooper tromping down my driveway to see if I was a threat to the progeny of the pissant name of Jeff “pissant” Goldstein of the pathetic, neutered, sissified, state of Colorado. I don’t give a rat’s ass whether the pissant’s progeny live or die, but I have no intention of snuffing the mofo’s chillen myself.
Are you ticked off enough yet? How about this - Froggy has confirmed that she is, indeed, a faculty professor at the University of Arizona - in Psychology. To file a formal complaint, as Froggy has, here is the contact information for Al Kazniak, the head of the Psychology Department:

1503 E University Blvd.
Building 68
Tucson, AZ 85721 (map)
Tel: (520) 621-7448
Fax: (520) 621-9306

Frisch's friends have now put Jeff's site under two denial of service attacks. As of this post, it's still down.

Please go here for the full story on this lunatic - and send your complaint to the U. of AZ. Bloggers, please post and link.

Just a thought - if this were one of the conservative bloggers making these attacks and threats, or a conservative professor, exactly how long do you think it would take before the University took action?

UPDATE #1: Moonbat Boo-hoo: According to Frisch's site, she's resigned:

white flag
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. I am a temporary worker there and I am in Oregon for the summer.

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.

Jeff - I lost my job. You won. Could you call off the troops?...
Typical Moonbat - not "to file a complaint regarding inappropriate behavior," oh, no - "to tell on me" she says. And the comments were nasty, not threatening. So, basically, it's OK?

I wonder if she told the FBI she threatened Jeff's kid - or that she was "shaking" at the prospect of them coming to talk to her about what she said? Hmm....probably not.

I wonder if that resignation debate was front and center before people started complaining? Hmm....probably not.

Oh - she issued a clarification, too:

clarification re: white flag
I just got an email that said:
You got what you f***ing deserve. It's only a positive thing for the country; one less liberal warping the minds of American students in tax-payer funded colleges. NO ONE feels sorry for you, you've done this all to yourself. Ha,ha!

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.
Let's make sure the University of Arizona accepts that resignation, shall we? Keep your comments going - but please, keep them civilized.

UPDATE #2: My email has gone to Mr. Kazniak. I'll let you know if I get a response.

UPDATE #3: Protein Wisdom is back up.

UPDATE #4: Deb is still distinctly lacking in anything resembling acceptance of responsibility - judge for yourself here, here, here, and here. For a bit of good news, her resignation has apparently been accepted...

Thanks to the Dread Pundit Bluto for putting the Pirates on the case - Yarrr.

Safe (New) Haven for Illegal Immigrants??

And people wonder why I say my state (CT) has its head up its keester sometimes....

First giving me a Taliban neighbor, then nixing Veterans' Day, and now THIS:

'No tell' policy sought for illegals
By Mary E. O'Leary, Register Topics Editor

NEW HAVEN - After some confusion among police about the city's long-standing practice of not reporting illegal immigrants to federal authorities, Mayor John DeStefano Jr. is having legal counsel look to put such a policy in writing.

DeStefano and Police Chief Francisco Ortiz have long encouraged immigrants to not be afraid to report incidents of crime because the city did not intend to report their status.

Lovely. Because that's the only thing stopping them from reporting a crime, right?

Oh, and catch this gem:
"Being an illegal immigrant is a civil violation, but not a crime. As I understand the law, in the case of a civil violation, we do not have an obligation to go any further with it," DeStefano said.

Think the crime-ridden home of Yale is unique? Think again:

A total of 68 cities and state governments have declined to enforce federal civil immigration violations as counterproductive to community policing, where the safety of residents and a good working relationship is of paramount importance.

I swear, one of these days my head is just going to explode.
