Hey, Glenn Beck, Stop Inciting Death Threats Against Professor Piven
By Matthew Rothschild, January 20, 2011

Frances Fox Piven is a distinguished professor of political science and sociology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

At 78, she has taught several generations of students about how and why poor people dont get a fair shake in the United States and how to increase their organizational power and encourage voter registration.

Such scholarship, evidently, is too much for Glenn Beck, who several months ago started to wage a nasty campaign against her.

Hes falsely accused her of being an enemy of the Constitution and an advocate of violent revolution and has listed her as one of the nine most dangerous people in the world.

Since he started to air these attacks, Piven has begun receiving death threats.

I got e-mails that said, Die You Cunt, and May cancer find you soon, she tells The Progressive. And people are posting my address on the Internet with their messages that are really crude and ugly and violent.

According to the Center for Constitutional Rights, several death threats against her have been posted on Becks website.

Here are a few:

Be very careful what you ask for honeyA few well placed marksmen with high powered rifles

Maybe they should burst through the front door of the arrogant elitist and slit the cows throat.

Somebody tell Frances I have 5,000 rounds ready.

We should blow up Pivens office and home.

Lets go string her up.

Snap her little chicken neck. This pinko filth needs a long dirt nap.

2. I could make your subject line a complete sentence: "Rabid Beck supporters...
are my family and neighbors."

:(

Having been on the receiving end of Beck rabid supporters' craziness (remember, he mentioned and dissed Wishadoo as part of the big evil socialist/fascist/communist/Nazi conspiracy back in October), with me receiving multiple nasty emails, FB wall posts and other communications from his "fans," I can only imagine the level it's taken to when he singles people out as he did with this professor. (Tides, anyone?)

He and his fans personally affecting me with threatening language was the last straw for me with my family. They chose him over me. So be it.

It's for the best. :)

I believe Beck, Palin and others are circling the drain. It's only a matter of time now. Still, for those they continue to affect with their hatred, it's rather awful.
