A Deadspsin editor is not backing down after failing to disavow a former employee who called for the deaths of conservative students.
“While Farrar no longer writes for Deadspin regularly, we as an organization do support his stance of trolling white supremacist supported and associated organizations like Charlie Kirk’s Turning Point USA,” said Barry Petchesky, deputy editor at Deadspin.
Petchesky was responding to a request for comment from Independent Journal Review regarding remarks made on Twitter by Deadspin contributor Jesse Farrar:
Im sure he is joking, but imagine if conservatives made a joke like that against liberals? pic.twitter.com/UvNXSLJsw0

Farrar appeared to advocate for the murder of conservative college students in responding to a Tweet from Turning Point USA’s founder Charlie Kirk, according to Kirk’s response. TPUSA is a conservative student organization with hundreds of chapters on college ad high school campuses around the country.
“I get countless of [sic] messages from students who say professors are lowering their grades & penalizing them for being conservative,” Kirk said.
“They shouldn’t do that. It’s not right. They should hold the conservative students heads under water until they stop breathing instead,” Farrar said in response.
His original response has now been deleted.
AnnaKatherine Clarke, a student at Covenant College, told Big League Politics that Farrar’s comments are disgusting.
“He’s quite literally advocating for water boarding of people he disagrees with, that’s not what America is built on,” she said.
Michael L. Jones, a student at Auburn University, agreed.
“I think it’s disgusting that someone would consider murdering another human in the first place, but particularly reprehensible for political views to be the reason,” he said.
Though Farrar deleted the Tweet pictured above, he re-affirmed that he was not joking about his stance when Kirk tried to give him the benefit of the doubt:
I am not joking.

“I’m sure he was joking, but imagine if conservatives made a joke like that against liberals,” Kirk said.
“I am not joking,” said Farrar in response.
Petchesky said in his email response to Independent Journal Review that he would not personally advocate for drowning conservative students, and that Farrar obviously meant the Tweet as a joke.
“I can’t argue that [drowning conservative students] wouldn’t make the world a better place.”
Sarah Palin Considering Primary Challenge to RINO Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski
Talk about an upgrade.
Former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is considering a 2022 primary challenge to liberal Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski.
Murkowsi is currently one of two nominal Republican Senators who has declined to support a tentative Trump administration nominee for the Supreme Court. She also was the only Republican not to vote for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination in 2018.
Palin addressed Murkowski’s refusal to support conservative nominees for the Supreme Court in a set of three videos she uploaded to her Instagram page on Thursday. In subtle reference to a possible primary challenge, she pointed at her house in Wasilla, Alaska, mentioning that she’d be potentially willing to move away from the community to Washington D.C.
“If you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing this time, and at least give a fair shake to the Supreme Court nominee that your president will be bringing before you, if you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing, … and do what the majority of Americans want you to do, to do what you were sent to Washington, D.C., to do,” said Palin to Murkowski in the video.
She referenced a notable campaign quip from 2008, when smug liberal pundits had mocked the vice presidential candidate for saying that she “can see Russia from her house.” (The assertion is more or less true, if not expressly literal- islands belonging to the Russian Federation can be seen from Alaska’s Diomede Islands.)
“I can see 2022 from my house!” said the former Alaska Governor, referring to the next election in which the NeverTrump Senator would be held to account in an Alaska Republican primary.
Palin has always been a staunch conservative, even to the point of falling out of the good graces of globalist liberal John McCain’s elite political network after the 2008 election. She’d doubtlessly be a very strong candidate in a 2022 senatorial campaign.
