Talia Lavin, a New York University journalism professor who is no stranger to controversy, was in the news yet again as she used degrading and disrespectful language to attack conservatives in recent tweets.
Fueled by rage and anger towards those she disagrees with, Lavin took to Twitter to call freshman congressman Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), “captain s—head” last Friday.
“[T]he real victim, captain s—head, speaks,” Lavin tweeted above a video of Crenshaw and his comments on the backlash. The tweet has since been deleted, but not before a screenshot of the post was captured and archived.
According to Fox News:
“[T]he real victim, captain s—head, speaks,” Lavin tweeted above a video of Crenshaw and his comments on the backlash. In an archived version of that Twitter thread, Lavin seemed to double down amid criticism and called Crenshaw “lieutenant commander s—-head.”
“[O]h [I] see the right-wing pearl clutchers are here. [S]orry, it’s my right to criticize a political hack who was also once a troop,” she tweeted.
Crenshaw was just one of many to criticize Omar after she referred to the events on 9/11 as “some people did something.”
“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,'” he tweeted. “Unbelievable.”
Shapiro quickly rebutted Lavin’s comments, denouncing them as the “”sheerest form of disgusting bulls***.” “I blamed no one for the Notre Dame fire, since it was an accident by all available evidence, and imputing malicious intent to me is simply gross,” he added.
According to Fox News:
Lavin also took aim at conservative author Ben Shapiro in an op-ed published Monday after Shapiro and others reacted to the devastating fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in France. Lavin appeared to tie Shapiro’s reaction to both the manifesto produced by New Zealand shooter Brenton Tarrant, as well as to right-wing nationalist Richard Spencer, whom she called a “professional racist.”
Lavin also attempted to bash conservative commentator and host Ben Shapiro, in an op-ed published in the Washington Post last Monday. The Washington Post allowed this controversial NYU professor to attack Ben Shapiro in an op-ed they published.
As I said earlier, Lavin is no stranger to controversy. She caused chaos last year when she proposed that another Marine veteran and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) somehow promoted Nazi symbolism.
“To Justin Gaertner, I apologize, sincerely: all I saw in you was the photo ICE tweeted, and not the human being depicted inside it,” Lavin tweeted last year. “It was uncharitable, and the hasty deletion doesn’t change that. I’m sorry and I have voluntarily resigned after three years at the New Yorker.”
Sometimes, there just are no words.
