Rutgers University professor sparks outrage after saying U.S. is ‘MORE brutal’ than ISIS

A Rutgers University professor has sparked outrage after declaring that the United States is ‘more brutal’ than the Islamic State because its invasions of the Middle East have killed 1.3million people.

In a Twitter post, Deepa Kumar, associate professor of journalism and media studies, wrote: ‘Yes ISIS is brutal, but US is more so, 1.3 million killed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan #NoToWar.’

ISIS, which has massacred thousands of people worldwide, regularly posts videos online of its militants sadistically rounding up terrified victims and carrying out mass beheadings or shootings.

    If we really ARE more brutal than ISIS, why haven’t we cut her head off yet?

  • Blacksmith

    We should pack her ass up and ship her over there to see how truly savage those pisslamist are.

  • luna

    This gives a rough estimate of 270 million killed by jihad.

    What does Deepa think would happen to her if her precious ISIS caught her without a black cloth coffin?

      The reason for the good professor’s mentally deranged words is that she is bucking for a promotion, perhaps to a deanship or a university vice-president’s position. The more mentally-sick a person sounds, the better chance for a promotion. This is a university after all.

        Or an editorial position has opened up at the Lancet.

    Is there anything more useless than a professor of journalism? Yes, a professor of media studies.

    Either she’s a lone nut, with original ideas, or she is parroting learned positions on Twitter. I don’t think her ideas are her own.

    The point of higher education, or in this case state sponsored higher education, is to encourage critical and independent thought for the benefit of the state. I’m afraid she is demonstrating ideological indoctrination (against the state) at the university, something which should be discouraged strongly, if not prohibited.


    Another liberal spewing anti-American rhetoric from the safe comfortable echo chamber of academia.

  • More of Amy Goodman and Co.’s twist on reality.

    “Journalism and media studies.” There’s that word again, “studies”, that tips us off that the professor is a fraud.

  • Professor Kumar is welcome to take her chances in some Islamist state if she prefers. Who is stopping her?
