Frisch Out Of A Job

Yesterday, the Register Guard reported that former UO Psychology professor Deborah Frisch resigned from her post at the University of Arizona due to flak the school received after she posted a number of psychotic hostile ramblings to the blog What exactly did Frisch write? The Register Guard reports:

“You live in Colorado, I see. Hope no one Jon-Benets your baby … If some nutcase kidnapped your child tomorrow and did to her what was done to your fellow Coloradan, Jon-Benet Ramsey, I wouldn’t give a damn … If I woke up tomorrow and learned that someone else had shot you and your tyke, it wouldn’t slow me down one iota. You aren’t human to me.”

The Guard doesn’t bother to quote the rest of her post:

Give your pathetic progeny (I sure hope that mofo got good genes from his mama!) a big fat tongue-filled kiss from me! LOTS AND LOTS OF SALIVA from Auntie MOONBAT, if you don’t mind! …

I am SHAKING, I tell you, SHAKING!!! in my boots at the prosect at an FBI and/or state police trooper tromping down my driveway to see if I was a threat to the progeny of the pissant name of Jeff “pissant” Goldstein of the pathetic, neutered, sissified, state of Colorado. …

Wanna escalate this game. Fine wit me.

Some people affiliated with the Oregon Commentator remember Frisch. I know former editor-in-chief Tim Dreier does. Way back in the not-so-distant past, Frisch took aim at Tim on Steve Verdon’s blog.

Your blog is great – I loved your post about not caring about Roe v. Wade. Perfect example of the grotesque, self-absorbed pathology induced by undergraduate economics education, even at a third rate university

r u there, timmy?

There’s more.

Looks like Timmy’s for real! What a coincidence. Sorry I don’t remember you. But why would you think I’d give a rat’s ass if if a moron who lurks in the bowels of stevie’s blog thinks I’m a moonbat, even if he was a student of mine one day?

Really, Timmy, you drastically overrate your importance and memorability. I do feel bad that I failed to instill the slightest ability to think or write logically in you. I almost feel like a failure.


And more

Timmy: You do track back to the Oregon Comentator. Wow.

Tell you what. I was planning on keeping quiet about the stupid white men who fired me at Oregon. I didn’t want to embarrass the cheaters too much.

But you are inspiring me to just name the names.

How would you feel if you knew that YOU personally were responsible for my naming names (and in the process, revealing even more sordid details) of some of the stupid, sexist, sleazebag white men at the U of O? You’d be FAMOUS – like Steve Prefontaine!

Let me know if you want me to name these fellow’s names in YOUR honor, Timmy!

Say the word, Timmy and it is a DONE deal.

Fuck you to the whiteboyz@quacks, from your friends@OregonCommentator.

If you’re curious about Frisch’s “the stupid white men who fired me at Oregon” comment, she explains here.

In her defense, Frisch claims that she was merely “trolling” blogs with which she disagreed in order to get a rise out of people. Yes, folks, Frisch — a professor of Psychology — is engaging in behavior worthy of a 15-year-old. In an article published in Inside Higher Ed Frisch explains how she is a victim:

The issue is how these rabid, crazy, right-wing nutcases have stalked me, told on me, reacted totally out of proportion to a joke in bad taste I posted on a blog. They are treating me the way they treated Ward Churchill — a lunatic lefty in academia who deserves to be verbally attacked, abused and mocked.

Yes, mocking a man’s child by making comments about child molestation is simply the height of hilarity, isn’t it? You really rise above the cacophonic clatter with with those remarks, don’t you?

So what does Frisch want to do now that she has been outed as an unhirable and unhinged sociopath? She wants to be the far-left Ann Coulter. Terr-fucking-rrific. She and Coulter deserve each other, and they can engage in some hot crazy-on-crazy action for all I care.

I have to give credit where credit is due, however; at least Frisch kept her insanity confined to the blogosphere (as if it needs anymore), whereas other former UO instructors have not. Kudos for that, professor Moonbat.

  2. SkipSmith says:

    Looks like my comment has been modified to remove all the parts where I mock people running to their mommies to protect them from mean things on the internet.

  3. […] The saga of Deborah Frisch, longtime comment troll and all-around kook, took another troubling, but not exactly unforeseeable turn in the last 48 hours. As far as we know, she is now the first troll of the political blogosphere to face criminal charges relating to such activity. On August 21 she was arraigned in an Oregon courtroom on charges of stalking and telephone harassment (PDF). The docket can be found at the link preceding, but is captured below for your viewing pleasure: […]

    >>I forwarded that Register Guard article to the Lane County Sherrif

  5. Kevin says:

    Rock on with your bad self Timothy!

  6. Olly says:

    maybe i should sue the oregon commentator for libel and slander and defamation of character.


  7. Beto Ochoa says:

    I was reading the comments in real time when the “Saliva” comment was left by Dr. Frisch. Her assertion that JG edited the comment is false. Perhaps she is deluded or in denial or just lying. Is a past incident or accusation of molestation the cause for the obfuscation and disavowal?

  8. Kevin says:

    Timothy, do you have the ability to provide proof that you were in this woman’s class at some point? If so, you should take extraordinary steps to display them. Giving this lady an out such as calling you a liar will only increase the length of time before she has to face the fact that she has some ‘issues’ (codeword for ‘needs help’).

    Even though she’s got problems, as her blog comments clearly display, it would be best for everyone to help her into therapy asap. Your actions might even save a life or two!

  9. Duder or El Dudarino if you're not into the whole brevity thing says:

    I spent most of my time occupying various administration buildings… smoking a lot of thai stick… breaking into the ROTC… and bowling. To tell you the truth Brandt, I don’t remember most of it.

  10. C-T says:

    Wow, this is just great. It’s like a soap opera, but online, and without shitty acting.

    Deb, alas, I never knew her… but she sounds like a douche bag. Is that libel? I sure hope so.

  11. Tyler says:

    Deb — Fuck you. Sincerly, me.

  12. Timothy says:

    Man, without the internet I’m not sure what there would be to laugh at. I might actually get something done at work, and we certainly wouldn’t want that.

  13. Hosedragger says:

    How’s that promise to keep away from this stuff going? I see you didn’t last long. I love how you proved me right Deb. Oh, and you may want to stop with all the claims of libel and harrassment, Deb. See, everytime you do it, you then committ harassment and libelous claims against the person. You defamed the guys character and blog, as well as his degree, his writing style etc.

    I guess the word and title of “hypocrite” still eludes you huh? And really, after you made the oral sex comment about Jeff’s kid on the other blog last week, the french kissing comment is really quie moot. You have outdone yourself.

    Congrats on the bracelets you are going to receive though. I bet they will look great. I figure by later this afternoon, your friend the Sheriff will pay another visit. Say Hi to Large Marge for us.

  14. Andy says:


    Sorry deb, I think you happen to be on the wrong side of the law.
    But fighting against free speech? Isn’t that YOUR defense in this case?

    You want us to edit something that YOU say you didn’t write – yet all credibility or honesty you once had is far removed from your persona.

    Who’s the loser deb?
    You are blacklisted from education, you lost your job, you are under a restraining order, and also are being sued! I love your ad hominem attacks on Tim, who you mistakenly attributed the post, because it is YOU who are the stalker!

    You place the blame on “rightwing nutcases” when it is YOU that is at fault!


    This is the most read UofO blog deb, and it’s because of the staff’s hard work – the only peice of shit is YOU!

  15. deb says:

    oops. sorry tim. it’s tyler that wrote the article, not you. makes sense. you couldn’t write something that coherent.

    tyler – contact me via email. i wanna talk witchu.

  16. deb says:

    maybe i should sue the oregon commentator for libel and slander and defamation of character.

    i didn’t say the auntie moonbat quote.

    this pissant named timmy boy has been stalking me for at least a year after we ran into each other at that loser steve verdon moron’s site. timmy’s a rightwing nutcase guy with a bachelors degree in EEKONOMICS. I am sure every faculty member would cringe if they saw timmy boy’s little bryan caplan esque dingbat libertarian drivel. Van Kolpin? Joe Stone? Anyone care to comment on timmy boy’s piece of shit blog?

    timmy – you are a loser and a moron and need to get a life.

    Delete the auntie moonbat line that Count Cockula added to the transcript.

  17. Timothy says:

    I doubt she’ll get hired at UO, they already denied her tenure once.

  18. I forwarded that Register Guard article to the Lane County Sherrif’s department, the UO pyshology department head, UO president and the UO department of public safety. Three of the four emailed me back, they thanked me for the tip and said they would investigate further. Deb’s in deep shinola.

  20. Czarmangis says:

    So let me make sure I understand this correctly..
    The Meth epidemic began in Oregon sometime around ’92 and now Arizona is Meth breadbasket for the rest of the nation.
    Dr.Demented launches into maniacal screeds like a Methed up piece of white trash gets run out of Arizona and is now crawling back to Oregon…
    And now she writes in nonsesnical child-talk like Rosie Odonell, yet another dyke Moonbat…..
    Things are beginning to make sense oddly enough…there are still some missing pieces though.
    We need to hear from some of her former students I think.

  21. Niedermeyer says:

    And by “Free Speech” we actually mean “mechanically pleasuring the interests behind the Republican Party”…

    Oh, and good luck with Lars… last time I listened to his show he wanted 5 good reasons not to nuke Iran. I’m sure the two of you will have some edifying discourse.

    I can’t wait.

  22. Ian says:

    Since you are making the rounds of the fascist propaganda outlets

    You know, The Oregon Commentator: A Fascist Journal of Opinion does have a certain ring to it.

  23. Niedermeyer says:

    Since you are making the rounds of the fascist propaganda outlets, let me offer you a face-to-face interview which could appear in our upcoming “Summer of Free Speech” issue… let me know: [email protected]

  24. Tyler says:

    Clearly Deb has some real issues she needs to sort out; I’m not sure what would compel a person to troll message boards — perhaps deep depression or some other psychological issue, or a seething, irrational anger that can only be expressed with short, witless bursts of insanity. Whatever. If Deb thinks we’re “wingnuts” then so be it. I am looking forward to this book of hers, though.

    Hey, Deb, if you’d like the OC to serialize your prose, please send it our way.

  25. deb says:

    Yikes, hombres. If you want me to troll here, you need to try harder to bait me. Timmy and Andy ain’t enuff 4 me.

    Oh wait. I am fasting from trolling these days.

    Never mind.

  26. Andy says:

    I have been reading over her blog again and the only jewels of wit have come from the comments section. 99% of the posts are “anti-deb,” and this is a great response to her post over concerns for proper discourse with Lars:

    “Do you honestly believe any of these people care to hear you OPINIONS? They are only interested in you being a disgusting freak! If they don’t ask you about the disturbed comments you made on Protien Wisdom, their callers will. They are all disguested with you and laughing behind your back. Your “celebrity” is based on being a sick Pedophile. You are truley pathetic and sad. But conservatives and Republicans are rooting for you to make the Left look even loonier than it already is! Hope you keep it up!”

    -The truth has a certain ring to it.

  27. Andy says:

    Well deb, unlike you, I am gainfully employed from 8am to 5pm, so if you’d like to meet at rennies sometime and give an interview to one of our professional, intelligent reporters (not I), feel free.

    Maybe after that you could convince me that all white males are evil and that the Austrian school of Economics is ignorant of the “facts.”

  28. deb says:

    Aw, Andy, you’re going to hurt my feelings. If you want to hear me, I’ll be on 1600 KPOT tomorrow at 8:20 and Lars Larson at 4 on 1120.

  29. Andy says:

    Yea I read her blog the weekend it was going down and basically the content of her message is the same as the insurgents. I’m shocked to say this but Pira’s comments and arguments are much more rational and relevant.

    Deb – you are a loser and a mootbat and plainly obscene. The insurgent was more creative and structured about their arguments than you will ever be. Everyone isn’t on the left because they are “confused about the facts.” All you have done from what I’ve read is spew hate and lies – no one gives a shit about a retraction or apology from you because you don’t give a shit about anything other than yourself. You have no decency, honor, or respect.

    A left-wing coulter? Yea, more like a replacement for hatoon.

  30. deb says:

    Thanks for the publicity, guys! I see Provost Moseley is retiring. Wasn’t he involved in a scandal a few years back involving sexual advances toward a male student on a trip to the coast or something? Or am I confusing him with another UO male administrator? It was 99 or 00, I think.

    Stop by south(west)paw some time, wing nuts! Even you, Timmy!


    P.S. Timmy was never in any of my classes, as far as I can tell. If he’d like to scan his transcript in so we all can see that he took Psychology 330 at UO in a term I taught it, I’ll retract my accusation that Timmy’s a liar, just like most of the rest of the rightwingnut blogosphere.

    I haven’t read the post but I reckon, Timmy’s confused about facts in this case, just like he is with regards to most issues.

  31. E. says:

    Tim — could you elaborate on the stuff she said in class? Now I’m really curious.

  32. Miles Rost says:

    Egos get crushed. Now, she’s out of a job. Betcha she ends up at NYU.

  33. Duder or el dudarino if youre not into the whole brevity thing says:

    Your revolution is over Ms. Frisch. Condolences. The bums lost. THE BUMS WILL ALWAYS LOSE! DO YOU HEAR ME FRISCH? THE BUMS WILL ALWAYS LOSE!

  34. Timothy says:

    It’s a Christmas In July miracle!

  35. Timothy says:

    Maybe in a jar someplace.

  36. Ian says:

    Does she have Coulter’s legs?

  37. Timothy says:

    Oh man, that\’s not even half as crazy as some of the shit she said in class. Or that the only post I\’ve made about abortion was noting that I found a NARAL ad humorous.
