And yes, some want that revolution to be violent. Robert Gehl reports that a history professor at Cal State University in Fresno is calling for the death of President Donald Trump.
He has also said the only “cure” for racist people is a bullet to their head. The account is not officially “verified,” but the interactions with other followers and his bio seem to indicate the account belongs to the professor.
“To save American democracy, Trump must hang,” Professor Lars Maischak tweeted in February. “The sooner and the higher, the better. #TheResistance #DeathToFascism.”
Amazingly, that tweet was from mid-February and hasn’t been flagged or removed. Perhaps it’s because Dr. Maischak has fewer than 100 followers.
But there’s much, much more.
“Has anyone started soliciting money and design drafts for a monument honoring the Trump assassin, yet?” he wrote in another tweet a few days later, along with the hashtag “TheResistance.”
In another, he calls for the murder two Republicans for “each deported immigrant.”
He has called for the murder of what he calls “racists.”
And has even taken shots at “flyover states.”
Professor Maischak appears to be a German immigrant – at least that’s the assumption one gets from his Twitter description which reads “Teaching American History with a German Accent.”
To top it off, the good professor has repeatedly compared Trump to Hitler.
When The Daily Caller contacted CSU Fresno, they said they don’t take responsibility for their employee’s comments:
“Lars Maischak is employed as a lecturer at Fresno State,” Margarita Adona told TheDCNF. “Statements made on his personal social media accounts are his alone and are not endorsed by or reflect the position of the University.”
We anticipate that this twitter feed will be “blocked” and/or “protected” by Professor, mainly because hateful, disgusting people are usually also cowards and hide in the shadows when the light starts to shine.
If that happens, here are the screenshots to some of his tweets:
