Profiles in Lying Turd Syndrome: Brian Leiter, “Law Professor” and Douche-Bag Extraordinaire at the University of Chicago
Opening Shot: First off, check out this epic rant by the late comic genius Bill Hicks, regarding another douche-bag, i.e. Rush Limbaugh. I’ll paraphrase him, in describing the anal cyst known as Brian Leiter.
“Speaking of academic devils, I was reading Brian Leiter’s op-ed the other day. Doesn’t Brian Leiter remind you of one of those gay guys who likes to lay in the tub while other men pee on him? Can’t you see his fat body in a tub while Kant, Hegel and Nietzsche just stand around pissing and defecating on him, and his little piggly wiggly dick can’t get hard? “Ahhh. Ahhh. I can’t get hard. Nietzsche, pee in my mouth.”
The Pig’s Moans on Huffington Post: On December 31, 2013, Cockroach Brian Leiter wrote a Huffington Post opinion piece labeled “American Law Schools and the Psychology of Cyber-Hysteria.” Look at this nonsense:
“Previously, I wrote about how the steep decline in applications to law schools was an unsurprising "consumer" response to the downturn in the legal sector in the wake of the financial crisis and the recognition that student debt was no longer dischargeable in bankruptcy. What was surprising, however, was the new "meme" that took hold in cyberspace: this economic catastrophe was the fault of law schools and law professors. The psychology of this "meme" is our topic here.” [Emphasis mine]
For $ome rea$on, this philosophy “professor” does not mind engaging in the logical fallacy of the straw man argument. When did critics ever claim that the law schools caused the economic collapse? I have pointed out for years that ABA law schools have been overproducing JDs for decades - and that the “educators” continue to pump out FAR TOO MANY GRADS for the available number of attorney openings.
Some Facts That the Pig Conveniently Ignored: From the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, under Job Outlook:
“Employment of lawyers is expected to grow by 10 percent from 2010 to 2020, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Competition for jobs should continue to be strong because more students are graduating from law school each year than there are jobs available.” [Emphasis mine]
Did you see anything indicating that there will be an equilibrium of JDs to attorney job openings by the year 2016 - as Brian Leiter claimed - in his garbage piece?!?! If so, then you too may also suffer from Lying Turd Syndrome. Perhaps, you merely cannot comprehend basic facts.
From 1980-1981 to 2009-2010 - a span of 30 years - ABA-accredited law schools/diploma mills collectively pumped out 1,161,863 graduates. For $ome rea$on, Cockroach Brian Leiter failed to mention this anywhere in his article.
According to the NALP Class of 2012 National Summary Report, there were a total of 46,364 graduates competing for 28,567 jobs “requiring bar passage.” Keep in mind that not all of those positions were traditional attorney openings. Apparently, Brian Leiter doesn’t care about such facts.
Catherine Rampell’s piece, “The Lawyer Surplus, State by State,” appeared in the June 27, 2011 edition of the New York Times Economix blog. The article is based on findings from the neutral Economic Modeling Specialists Inc. Here is one excerpt:
“According to this model, every state but Wisconsin and Nebraska (plus Washington, D.C.) is producing many more lawyers than it needs. (See table after the jump for full data, and additional caveats.)
In fact, across the country, there were twice as many people who passed the bar in 2009 (53,508) as there were openings (26,239).”
Do you see a difference in tactics? Brian Leiter relies on suppositions from a trade publication that depends on ads from law schools, i.e. the NaTTTional Juri$TTT, and $elf-intere$ted “research” from fellow academics - while I cite to cold, hard facts and figures from the industry and objective sources.
A Brief Look at Brian Leiter’s Psychology: Leiter loves to cite to and quote everyone’s favorite raving lunatic philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche. The maniac was committed to psych wards for the last 11 years of his life. It’s fitting since Leiter is also mentally unbalanced. Brian Lying Turd posted the following entry on August 4, 2010:
“There are relatively few Stanford professors who are candidates for the death penalty...
...under international law precedents, but Professor Rice is one. But Professor Gilbert is more forgiving.” [Emphasis in original]
Hello, ass-clown. Since you are such an “expert” on legal and philosophical matters, Brian, could you please cite to the case where Dr. Condolleeza Rice was charged with and convicted of “war crimes”? You truly are an irresponsible, unhinged, pathetic bitch. Again, this rodent “works” at a “non-profit in$titution of higher education” - and therefore receives much of his salary from federally-backed student loans.
Conclusion: Brian Leiter is an academic rodent who is personally benefiting from the law school scam. He has less credibility than a used car salesman. By the way, cockroach: I met Paul Campos in person last April. At the end of that discussion, I brought up your vile name. Campos immediately said that you are “a douche-bag.” Then again, can anyone blame Leiter for ignoring truth, since it will not advance the academic thieves' agenda?!?!
Lastly, Pig Leiter knows that the scamblogs have effectively pointed out that law school is a terrible risk for MOST students. That is the reason why he is bitching about it on the Huffington Post. The number of applicants has declined for three straight years. In the past, college grads flocked to law school during periods of recession. Furthermore, Leiter KNOWS that there will not be a shortage of lawyers in a couple of years, since there is already a GLUT of attorneys in the U.S. Lastly, it is CLEAR that this old swine does not give one single, solitary droplet of excrement about current or future law students. He simply wants to keep the student loan gravy train rolling along. After all, pupils are a means to an end.
