Virulent, Abusive Facebook Posts of Former Marquette Official
At least one of them, no longer working at Marquette, has let it all hang out. Bob Deahl, recently retired Dean, College of Professional Studies at Marquette University, has a Facebook page on which he does nothing to conceal his hatred of Republicans and conservatives.
[Warning: Offensive Language]
Attack on Conservative ChristiansAt the top of his page at this moment, he reposts (with obvious approval) an article that claims:
Worse than this chronic fixation on sex, gender, and sexuality, is that Conservative Christianity has somehow deputized itself as qualified and entitled to police such things for the world, with the Bible (not Science, facts, or reason) as its sole authority on the matter.If that’s not bad enough, he adds his own comment:
More accurately, not merely the Bible—but the Bible as carefully filtered through a repressed, puritanical, selective interpretation crafted almost exclusively by men raised to believe that God was a dude and that Eve ate the fruit and seduced poor Adam.
F’ing sick nutcasesWe all, of course, can imagine what would happen to any university bureaucrat who said anything even faintly resembling this about Muslims. But he doesn’t work at Marquette anymore, so he can let it all hang out.
On Trump and His PeopleIn another shared post he says:
Well the Russians sure have succeeded in ruining AmeriKa....they got Trump elected who is, almost everyday, using his ignorant power to change things that will ruin our environment, health care, freedom and personal liberties, education, progress on sustainability, and on and on ....this monster asshole is a tool of the Russians and is RUINING this country.If that seems pretty ordinary anti-Trump rhetoric these days, that’s merely a symptom of how the president has utterly deranged his enemies.
In other shared post about Mike Flynn he said “Disgusting white trash like the entire Trump family and administration.” But that was nothing compared to his next post, which said about Trump:
Corrupt, Incompetent, Mentally Disturbed, Malignant Narcisist, Idiot, asshole, monsterAnd then about Mike Pence:
You total fucking piece of inhuman shit.....You piece of pathetic gutless, heartless, cruel piece of shit...And then about mild-mannered Boy Scout Paul Ryan:
Ideological asshole and morally bankrupt to bootAnd then back to Trump:
this monster is destroying this countryHe is a bit milder with Betsy DeDevos:
she is just one of many completely clueless, ignorant, arrogant right wing cabinet members...But then returns to Mike Pence:
Just remember this is the extremist right wingnut bigot, sexist, homophobic, mysoginist that is now our VP...Then, in a commentary on a video, he goes into a more extended rant on Trump:
Here is what everyone is missing...the ESSENCE of this asshole, what Trump REALLY believes in is....MONEY...he believes everything exists to MAKE MORE MONEY. And many of the Republicans see that this is Governments role as welll...they confuse Governing and Running a Business. So they don’t give a shit about you or me or the well-being of society or the common good or that government is about care and service and assistance...hence go fuck yourself about health care and social security and safety, etc....everything is just about making money.

That’s all Trump cares about...he does NOT care about you duped Trump voters and supporters THAT IS FOR SURE....That’s all Trump cares about...he does NOT care about you duped Trump voters and supporters THAT IS FOR SURE....Then Deahl posts a fake video with Donald Trump holding up a book reading “Fuck the Planet,” and comments:
Sums up this complete asshole's approach to life
Fan of Angela DavisAnd of course, he is enthusiastic about Angela Davis speaking at Marquette. Indeed, he claims:
So proud of Marquette University for hosting Dr. Angela Davis who spoke on Freedom, equality, gender, race, feminism, LGBT, transgender, Palestinian, and other rights issues! Lots is students and faculty AND LOTS of members of our great community
Back to Trump’s PeopleAnd of Ivanka Trump joining the White House staff:
More pathetic ignorant corruptionIf Ivanka can be attacked, of course Sean Spicer will be, with Deahl calling him a “mentally unbalanced man” and then back to Trump calling him an “asshole” and Republicans “Pathetic heartless bastards...ALL of them.”
Then, why not lump a bunch of people together and say:
Trump and Spicer and Bannon and all these Trump relatives are ALL fucking incompetent idiotsNot satisfied with attacking Trump and his Administration, he asked of Scott Walker:
When will this pathetic little boy idiot drop out ignoramace just finally go awayBut then back to Pence:
Pence is an extremest to the extreme, a cruel, hateful homophobe and terribly anti gay and anti women....He must NEVER become presidentAnd then Mike Pence meeting with the Congressional Freedom Caucus, with the observation:
Mysoginist racist white pigs, ALL
Conclusion?We could go on and on, since Deahl does, but this raises a question. Is Deahl the secret id of the Marquette Administration, having come out of the closet since his division (Professional Studies) went down the drain?
That would be a questionable generalization, but neither would be be completely off base.
Campus bureaucrats are motivated by two things: their own ideology, and their own bureaucratic interests. Thus when an administration panders to the campus left, is it because the bureaucrats are leftists, or because they fear that campus leftists can make trouble for them, and thus need to be placated?
Marquette has gone much further than it has had to to merely placate the campus left. It’s hard to avoid the conclusion that attitudes like Deahl’s are pretty common among people who run this “Catholic university.”
