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.
eBay BANS Six Dr. Seuss Books That Will No Longer Be Published Due to “Racist Images”
This is getting completely out of hand.
The hysteria continues: eBay has banned the reselling of six Dr. Seuss books that will no longer be published due to “racist imagery,” saying that these listings now violate their policies.
eBay had emailed people who put the books up for sale early Thursday morning. With a subject line titled “Your listing was removed: Offensive material policy,” eBay’s email reads as follows:
“We had to remove your listing because it didn’t follow our Offensive material policy. Listings that promote or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination aren’t allowed.
“Dr. Seuss Enterprises has stopped publication of this book due to its negative portrayal of some ethnicities. As a courtesy, we have ended your item and refunded your selling fees, and as long as you do not relist the item, there will be no negative impact to your account. Please review our Offensive Materials Policy prohibits this item for more information [sic].
“You can’t relist items we’ve ended. Please ensure your current and future listings follow this policy.”
Example screenshot below:
The six books that Dr. Seuss Enterprises said they would no longer publish include And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer.
Big League Politics reported Tuesday that a school district in northern Virginia stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day because of the “racial undertones” of such books. Although the district said they would not ban Dr. Seuss books from their libraries and classrooms, there’s no doubt they’ll consider removing the six books now considered irredeemably racist.
eBay is probably the first domino to fall. Expect Amazon and others to follow suit.
