College professor lectures students on Trump: ‘I wouldn’t mind seeing him dead’



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.
