California State University won't fire discipline a professor who appeared to call for the death of President Donald Trump and said two Republicans should be executed for each immigrant deported.
According to The Daily Caller, a twitter account appearing to belong to Professor Lars Maischak sent out a tweet that said, “To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher, the better.”
Another tweet said, “Justice = The execution of two Republicans for each deported immigrant.”
After news of the concerning tweets broke, the owner of the account defended the comments. “To re-state the obvious: I do not intend to harm Mr. Trump, nor do I wish for anyone else to harm Mr. Trump by way of an assassination!”
He then added, in two separate tweets, “I am, however, convinced, given the nature of his regime, that he will be held accountable for his crimes in a court,... and that historical precedent suggests that a death sentence is inevitable, if democracy prevails.”
A spokeswoman for CSU Fresno told The Daily Caller “Statements made on his personal social media accounts are his alone and are not endorsed by or reflect the position of the University.”
SOUND OFF in the comments: should this man be allowed to teach anyone?
