Boston’s Northeastern University issued a statement Wednesday saying the school does not condone violence after a video was posted of one of their professors in a Jan. 31 lecture telling students he would be happy to see President Donald J. Trump dead.
“Sometimes I want to just see him impeached other times, quite honestly, I hope there are no FBI agents here, I wouldn’t mind seeing him dead,” said Professor Barry Bluestone, the founding director of the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy.
Numerous calls from Big League Politics to the Dukakis Center and Bluestone’s office went to voicemail.
Northeastern told The Boston Globe, it does not support violence, but it would prevent people from seeing the lecture.
“The university and its leaders steadfastly oppose violence in all its forms,” the school said in a statement to the paper. “While faculty members are free to express controversial opinions, the university cannot provide a public platform for comments that could be construed to condone violence. As a result, we have decided to take down the video of this event.”

The Dukakis Center is named for former Massachusetts governor Michael S. Dukakis, the 1988 Democratic nominee for president. Dukakis garnered 41,809,074 votes in the contest against Vice President George H.W. Bush’s 48,886,097, in the last true presidential landslide. Dukakis won only 10 states and the District of Columbia for 111 electoral votes compared to Bush’s 40 states and 426 electoral votes.
#StopTheTires – American Truckers Halt Shipments Citing Voter Fraud, Elite Disrespect, Joe Biden
Truckers have had enough.
Groups of truckers began a strike inspired by the #StopTheTires movement on Monday, ceasing to transport non-essential goods.

One video compilation reveals lines of trucks on American highways, halted to a stop. Many truckers speak of poor treatment from their communities, citing support for first responders and ignorance of the contributions truckers have made during the coronavirus pandemic. Truckers cite onerous coronavirus restrictions, poor maintenance of roads, and the shutdown of rest facilities they rely on. Many are also pointing to what they identify as a fraudulent 2020 US presidential election and Joe Biden’s hostility to the blue-collar middle class demographic truckers identify with.
“70 million of you guys voted against the trucking industry. Against oil and gas. We ain’t gonna forget this s***.”
Figures affiliated with the #StopTheTires movement have urged truck drivers carrying essential cargo such as food and medical supplies not to strike. It’s likely that any cessation of trucking will result in inconveniences for American consumers, with popular goods becoming unavailable at many retailers.
Organizers had earlier encouraged temporary strikes on Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving, with trucker Jeremy Rewoldt citing the damage a potential Joe Biden presidency could incur on truckers. Biden opposes fracking, a method of producing fossil fuels, Rewolt pointed to the Democrat as a crucial supporter of Black Lives Matter riots and criminals that deter truckers from entering major American cities.
If the truckers are not provided the respect they deserve, it’s likely that major contingents of the American public will eventually starve.
