Liberal university professor shows why USA is so divided, embattled, and uncaring

Is “liberal” just another word for “bloodthirsty hatemonger?”

On Friday, the Daily Caller reported that Lars Maischak, a history professor at California State University, Fresno, appears to have advocated for the murder of President Donald Trump, and called for the execution of Republicans to make up for illegal aliens deported from the country.

According to the Daily Caller:

Tweets from an account purportedly operated by Professor Lars Maischak call for Trump to “hang” in order to “save American democracy,” and say the only “cure” for racist people is a bullet to their head. The account is not verified, although the bio and interactions between the user and other Twitter users indicate it belongs to the professor.

“To save American democracy, Trump must hang,” Professor Lars Maischak appears to have tweeted in February. “The sooner and the higher, the better. #TheResistance #DeathToFascism.”

He wasn’t finished, however.  “Has anyone started soliciting money and design drafts for a monument honoring the Trump assassin, yet?” the user wrote in another tweet a few days later, using the hashtag “TheResistance.”  He hates not only President Trump, but any and all who voted for him, saying “You Fascist Trump-voting white trash scum can wallow in your filthy hell-holes of flyover states.”

And he advocated murdering Republicans to make up for the deportation of illegal immigrants.

He’s also advocated banning the GOP:  “A democracy must not be tolerant of those who want to abolish democracy. It must vigorously defend itself. Ban the GOP.”

This tenured university professor also recommends abandoning the US Constitution, calling it “rotten” and telling fellow liberals to reject it outright.

In short, this guy is a Class A liberal hatemonger, right up there with the Virginia nutjob who said he’s okay with exterminating the millions of Americans in the NRA.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  Is there really any wonder why the USA is in the condition it is today?  Our state universities are willing to hire (and tenure) a professor who has no thought of keeping his radical, hateful thoughts to himself, but instead wants to show as large a crowd as possible why he should never be permitted to instruct our youth. Why he should not, in fact, be allowed to go anywhere near our youth.  Cal State should “promote” him immediately to some janitorial position where he can do no more harm.

OOOObama to America: “Muslim Americans keep us safe.”

Mr. OOOObamaWhen Barack Obama visited the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamic Society of Baltimore on Wednesday, he said: “The first thing I want to say is two words that Muslim Americans don’t hear often enough: Thank you.”

While Obama has been in office, Muslims have murdered non-Muslims, avowedly in the cause of Islam, at Fort Hood, Boston, Chattanooga, and San Bernardino, and attempted to do so in many, many other places. Imagine if armed Baptists screaming “Jesus is Lord” had committed murder, and explained that they were doing so in order to advance Christianity, in four American cities, and had attempted to do so in many others. Imagine that those killers were supporters of a global Christian movement that had repeatedly called for attacks on U.S. civilians and declared its determination to destroy the United States.

Imagine how incongruous it would be in that case for the President of the United States to visit a church and say: “The first thing I want to say is two words that Christian Americans don’t hear often enough: Thank you.” And imagine how unlikely it would be that Barack Obama would ever have done that.

But his visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore was the apotheosis of the Muslim victimhood myth, as he signaled yet again to the world (and worldwide jihadis) that in the U.S., Muslims are victims, victims of unwarranted concern over jihad terror, and thus that concern is likely to lessen even more, as Obama dismantles still more of our counter-terror apparatus.

“We’ve seen children bullied, we’ve seen mosques vandalized,” Obama claimed. “It’s not who we are. We’re one American family. And when any part of our family begins to feel separate or second class, it tears at the heart of our nation” – he said to his gender-segregated Muslim audience, with the womensitting in the back. In reality, Muslims are not victimized in American society: FBI hate crime statistics show that the hysteria over “Islamophobia” is unfounded, but that matters not at all to Barack Obama. At the mosque, he said: “If we’re serious about freedom of religion — and I’m talking to my fellow Christians who are the majority in this country — we have to understand that an attack on one faith is an attack on all faiths.”

Once again Obama felt free to scold and admonish Christians, but said nothing about Muslims in the U.S. needing to clean house and work for real reform that would mitigate jihad terror. And his premise was false: there is no attempt to restrict Muslims’ freedom of religion. Donald Trump hasn’t called for that; nor has Ben Carson or any serious analyst. But the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) (a representative of which accompanied Obama to the mosque Wednesday) and other Islamic advocacy groups have consistently charged that counter-terror efforts and attempts to restrict the political, supremacist and authoritarian aspects of Sharia that are at variance with Constitutional principles were tantamount to restricting Muslims’ religious freedom.

Now the President of the United States has endorsed their false narrative, which will only further stigmatize initiatives to understand the jihadis’ ideology and counter it effectively. He further criticized those who dare to suggest that Islam might have something to do with Islamic terrorism by criticizing those who say that the U.S. is at war with Islam: “That kind of mind-set helps our enemies,” he intoned. “It helps our enemies recruit. It makes us all less safe.”

The U.S. certainly isn’t at war with Islam, but segments of the Islamic world are at war with the U.S., and Obama did not explain what might be done to counter the beliefs that have given rise to that idea. He is, of course, against studying the beliefs of the enemy. Yet he said proudly: “Jefferson and John Adams had their own copies of the Qur’an,” without bothering to mention that they had them in order to understand the ideology of the enemy the new nation faced in the Barbary Pirates. They held, of course, the same ideology he ignores and denies today, the one he ordered all traces of removed from counterterror training.

“Islam,” Obama declared, “has always been part of America.” Really? There were Muslims at Jamestown? In the Massachusetts Bay Colony? At Roanoke? Obama’s statement is so wildly ridiculous that it doesn’t just invite parody; it pleads for it. Remember the Muslims among the Founding Fathers, Yahya al-Adams and Iskandar Hamilton? Remember the Muslims who told James Madison about Muhammad’s Constitution of Medina so that he could lay out the foundations of a republic in the U.S. Constitution? Remember the Muslims who fought so valiantly in the Revolutionary Jihad, and the Jihad of 1812, and the Mexican Jihad, and the Civil War, aka the Jihad Between the Caliphates? Remember all the controversies about whether Muslim soldiers in the Civil War could make sex slaves out of the wives and daughters of Confederate commanders? The jihad suicide attacks that broke the Germans’ will to fight on during World War I?

Burrowing deeper into fantasy, Obama proclaimed: “Generations of Muslim Americans helped to build our nation.” He didn’t mention the real contributions Muslims have made to our nation: you know, like rearranging the New York skyline, transforming government buildings into grim, nervous fortresses, making air travel into the exercise in annoyance and humiliation that it is today, and draining the American economy with two futile wars and hundreds of billions spent on security and counter-terror initiatives.

In detailing the contributions that Muslims have made to the U.S., Obama said: “Muslim Americans keep us safe. They are our police. They are our fire fighters. They’re in (the Department of) Homeland Security.” And remember: none of them were screened for jihadi sympathies. To have done so would have been “Islamophobic,” and transgressed against the prevailing dogma that Islam is a Religion of Peace that non-Muslims are wrong and bigoted to be concerned about.

The most ominous thing Obama said in this speech full of treacle and humbug was this: “We’re not going to strengthen our leadership around the world by allowing politicians to insult Muslims or pit groups of Americans against each other. That’s not who we are. That’s not keeping America safe.” So what is he going to do? Destroy the First Amendment and disallow politicians to insult Muslims?

Obama decried “phony tough talk and bluster and over-the-top claims.” Yet in the final analysis, that was all he offered.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  Phony tough talk, bluster, over-the-top claims, and outright lies (“If you like your doctor/medical plan/current insurance, you can keep it.”) are all we will ever hear from Mr. OOOObama.  (Oval Office Occupant Obama. He does not deserve the title of president.)  OOOObama, Clinton, and most of the Democrats believe the ends justify the means.  Truth has no bearing on results.  How many times now have you heard Mrs. Clinton deny she did anything wrong in using a non-secure email account to send US classified information?  She knowingly, deliberately, and with full awareness of what she was doing, BROKE THE LAW…because she has always thought she was above the law.  She and Bill starting breaking laws and lying about it back in their Arkansas days, and they are still doing it today.  Mrs. Clinton keeps telling you that she did absolutely nothing wrong, and the FBI keeps finding classified emails on her private server.  Some of them were so classified, so secret, that they were not able to be disclosed at all to the public…and many of them contained “operational intelligence” which could without question have endangered American lives.  Many media people and publications are now saying that Mrs. Clinton, because of her utter disregard for both State Department policies (remember, this is the government department she herself was in charge of at the time) and federal law, deserves to be prosecuted as a criminal.

Speaking of OOOObama, when is the last time you heard him say anything in praise of Christians?  Yet he goes out of his way to praise Muslims, both here and abroad.  OOOObama cannot even be bothered to maintain the decades-old US-Israel relationship, effectively throwing Israel to the Muslim wolves who are waiting to pounce on her.

OOOObama and Clinton and other progressives all believe they are victims of the real Americans who do not subscribe to the liberal progressive diatribe.  We think it’s time to stand up and say how offended we are at all the progressive nonsense we’ve been subjected to for the last nearly eight years.  Obama thinks that when he tells us something, we have to believe it because he is, you know, the Oval Office Occupant. That also is nonsense…but Hillary thinks the same thing.

The ravings of logical liberals, and other important items…

I have grown accustomed to the fact that liberals believe they can somehow change human nature and create a utopian world or, at least, a world that fits their definition of utopia. Although I still find it disturbing, I no longer find it surprising that liberals base their opinions and actions on emotionalism rather than logic or reason. A steadfast refusal to let facts get in the way of their presuppositions seems to be in the DNA of liberals, yet they think they are brighter than just about everyone else.

For example, recall when Jonathan Gruber, the puffed-up academic from MIT, talked condescendingly about the stupidity of the American voting public. Frankly, if he had limited his denunciation to just liberals, I might have agreed with him.

Before going any farther down this road, a caveat is in order. If you are put off by my use of the word “stupid” in the title of this column, understand that I spent a good deal of time trying to come up with a softer descriptor. For example, I tried the word “ignorant,” but it did not work because ignorance is just a lack of knowledge that can be cured through reading, listening to those who are more informed on the subject in question, discussing, debating, and keeping an open mind. Since liberals are steadfastly opposed to reading, listening, discussing, and debating with an open mind, “ignorance” failed the test of applicability. So did “illogical,” “unreasonable,” “fact-averse,” and “uninformed.” Finally, I settled on the word “stupid” because it conveys just the right meaning: a determination to continue doing the wrong things even when you know they are wrong, simply because you want them to be right. That can only be called stupid.

All of this is to say I am rarely shocked or even surprised when a prominent liberal says or does something that is just plain stupid. At least I shouldn’t be surprised, but then liberals have a way of outdoing themselves in the dumb and dumber department. Consequently, even though I am inured to the illogic, lack of reason, and aversion to facts that so often characterize liberal thinking, there are still occasions when I find myself asking, “Can liberals really be this stupid?”

Conservative columnist George Will refers to the fact-challenged ravings and out-of-left-field actions of liberals as “poppycock,” a less confrontational, more refined descriptor than my word.  However, even though I admire Will’s commentary, he is—in this case—letting liberals off the hook too easily by toning down his rhetoric. In a recent column, the conservative commentator shared a long list of examples of what he called liberal “poppycock”; examples he might have more accurately labeled liberal stupidity. In this column, I add my own comments to a few of the examples Mr. Will offered his readers.

In California, a high school principal denied the school’s booster club permission to raise money by selling meals donated by Chick-fil-A because the restaurant chain supports traditional marriage. The principal was supported in his decision by the school superintendent who claimed “we value inclusivity and diversity.” Oh really? Then what about including the overwhelming majority of your student body and fans who support Chick-fil-A’s position or at least support its First Amendment right to hold such a position? If these two politically correct—perhaps I should say “stupid”—administrators really valued diversity, they would not ban Chick-fil-A on the basis of its point of view. After all, embracing diversity means not just tolerating a variety of different views, but ensuring exposure to a variety of views, including those you disagree with.

Here was an excellent opportunity for two so-called educators to turn a situation into a civics lesson on the real meaning of diversity and inclusiveness, but these two administrators are apparently so steeped in political correctness that they squandered the opportunity. Rather than teaching students that diversity means respectfully embracing differences, the principal and superintendent in this case taught them that diversity and inclusiveness mean banning all but the approved, politically correct points of view.  Don’t look now, Mr. Principal and Mr. Superintendent, but that’s what they do routinely in communist nations and other totalitarian states. Can liberals really be this stupid? Apparently they can.

By now readers of my columns know all about the fracas over the use of “Redskins” for the name of the Washington, D.C. NFL team. Liberals in and out of government are incensed that the team continues to use this non-PC name (although surveys show that American Indians are not bothered by it). The Obama administration has even used the power of the federal government in an attempt to coerce the franchise into discarding the name “Redskins.” Understand that this is the same federal government that spends billions of dollars procuring Tomahawk cruise missiles and Apache helicopters. Further, this is the President who approved the name Geronimo for the mission in which Osama bin Laden was finally brought to justice. Can liberals really be this stupid? Apparently they can.

One of the best or perhaps I should say worst examples of liberal stupidity comes from the Freedom Socialist Party (FSP), an organization that advocates for a $20 per hour minimum wage. According to George Will, the FSP recently advertised a job opening for a Web developer. The starting wage was $13 per hour. This was not just a proof-reading error. Apparently the FSP sees no irony in advocating that every other organization be required to pay a $20 per hour minimum wage while it pays substantially less. Can liberals really be this stupid? Apparently they can.

As good (or bad) an example as this one is, even the FSP cannot hold a candle to Vice President Joe Biden when it comes to making embarrassingly inane comments. Biden makes so many foot-in-mouth gaffes that they are hard to keep up with, but his referring to Africa as a “nation” rather than a continent ranks high on the list of his top-ten most stupid comments. Close behind the “Africa” comment was Biden’s recent statement about the victims of the devastating 2011 tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri. According to our fact-challenged vice-president, 161,000 were killed. Obviously no math major, the vice-president was off by a mere 160, 839 people. Can liberals really be this stupid? Apparently they can.

One final example comes from California Governor Jerry Brown. Apparently the governor buys the liberal party line on global warming. Concerned that global warming is going to cause a four-foot rise in the Pacific Ocean, Governor Brown fretted that the Los Angeles International Airport would one day be under water. Actually, LAX is more than 120 feet above sea level. Global warming notwithstanding, California’s math-challenged governor need not worry. Can liberals really be this stupid? Apparently they can.
