College Professor Placed on Leave over ‘Dead Cops’ Tweet
Are the members of “Antifa” rational?
That’s a debate that Fox Business host Kennedy tries to have in this clip with recently suspended John Jay College of Justice Economics Professor Mike Isaacson, who thoughtlessly tweeted, “Some of ya’ll might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John Jay College, but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.”
Could Isaacson have been any more callous or hateful in his communications?
In the wake of his hateful tweet, faculty members of his college received death threats, and president of the school Karol Mason made the statement “I am appalled that anyone associated with John Jay, with our proud history of supporting law enforcement authorities, would suggest that violence against police is ever acceptable.”
Isaacson was immediately placed on paid leave as police union leaders called for his termination and even liberal New York City Mayor (and rumored 2020 Democratic presidential candidate) Bill de Blasio tweeted in response, “New York City won’t stand for the vile anti-police rhetoric of Michael Isaacson. And neither should John Jay College.”
The anorexic Isaacson, who’s seen in this segment wearing nail polish and calling himself an “anarcho-Communist,” seems to have no conception of the fact that his Antifa movement is far more violent and hateful than the police officers they condemn. He also clearly has no idea of how much community support there is for policing, and how little there is for violent hooligans like the group he’s a member of.
Watch, as host Kennedy — who has police officer relatives — takes him to task for his juvenile attitude.
Where do they get these people from? I sure don’t remember these kinds of people in colleges? He has no business teaching anywhere with his mentality.
