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.
New York Young Republican Leader Calls on President Trump to Immediately Fill Supreme Court Vacancy
Fill that seat.
In a statement released on September 19, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club called on President Donald Trump to immediately nominate a Supreme Court justice following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
It then urged the U.S. Senate, especially its Republican members, to confirm Trump’s potential nomination as soon as possible.
Because of the unstable nature of the 2020 election cycle, the U.S. will likely be faced with numerous legal questions about the voting process after election day in November. The Supreme Court will most assuredly have to make important decisions regarding the election’s validity during a time when there will be irregular voting patterns due to the pandemic.
For conservatives worried about the integrity of the presidential elections, getting the right Supreme Court justice nominated is crucial.
The NY Republican Club issued the following statement:
Heading into a tumultuous and highly contested presidential election, our nation requires a full bench to opine on legal questions should they arise in an election that has already presented novel issues due to the pandemic in voting and the election process. To preserve the integrity of our elections, a hallmark of healthy, functioning republics, we ask the president to exercise his constitutional duty.
BLP reached out to the President of the New York Young Republican Club Gavin Wax for his take on the recent Supreme Court vacancy. Wax commented:
As Ruth Bader Ginsburg said herself there is nothing unconstitutional about appointing a justice in the final year of a presidential term. The president should immediately nominate and the senate immediately confirm a conservative justice to the court per both of their election mandates.
The stakes are high right now in America.
A nominally conservative judiciary would at least place a handbrake on the Left’s social engineering fantasies.
In the long-term, nationalists will need to develop judicial networks that promote judges who uphold American values such as free speech and the right to bear arms, while working to strike down unconstitutional acts such as affirmative action and onerous anti-discrimination laws.
Rough times lie ahead, but in order to correct past errors, long-term planning and building of a solid nationalist infrastructure will be necessary to restoring America.
