John Jay College has placed an anarchist criminal justice professor on administrative leave while they decide the fate of his employment after tweets surfaced of him stating that it is a “privilege to teach future dead cops.”
The Manhattan college bizarrely had Mike Isaacson, 29, teaching future members of law enforcement in their economics department.
“Some of y’all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops,” wrote Isaacson in August.
In a statement to Big League Politics on Thursday a spokesperson said that they do not condone his opinions and that the issue had only reached the administration that night.
“As a 2x grad there, I know Michael Isaacson’s reprehensible values don’t represent @JohnJayCollege, #NYC, #NYPD or families of murdered cops,” Police Commissioner James O’Neill tweeted.
In a follow-up statement sent to Big League Politics on Friday, the college announced that he was placed on leave.
“The John Jay alumni who work in law enforcement, and the students who aspire to careers in law enforcement, represent our best. They secure the safety of our families and communities and deserve our respect. The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our top priority. Out of concern for the safety of our students, faculty and staff, we are immediately placing the adjunct on administrative leave as we continue to review this matter,” the statement began.
College President Karol V. Mason went on to explain that while the school respects the freedom of speech, they do not condone anything that can be perceived as a threat of violence.
“We recognize that the open exchange of diverse, even opposing ideas and perspectives gives strength to our institution and enriches the educational experience of our students. Indeed, to fulfill our mission, it is vital that we support our students, faculty and staff in engaging in robust, civil, and vigorous debate about the issues of the day. While respecting free speech and academic freedom are deeply held values, expressions of hate or intimidation are not welcome in that civil discourse, nor is anything that can be perceived as an incitement to violence,” the statement continued.
Isaacson is one of the founders of the Antifa group “Smash Racism DC” which put out a target list of Trump supporters prior to the inaugural DeploraBall last year. He gained national attention after he and his unusually long neck appeared on Thursday’s episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, where he advocated for Antifa’s use of violence.
POLL: 54% of Americans See “Other People in America” as the Greatest Threat to US Way of Life
A Sunday poll conducted by CBS News reveals unprecedented division within the American public, with 54% Americans pointing to their fellow citizens as the greatest threat to what they define as the American way of life.
Economic forces, natural disasters, and foreign threats were easily surpassed by the threat presented by “other people in America.”
In coming years, a majority of the American public predicts that political violence will become more frequent, not more rare.
Voters overwhelmingly expect Joe Biden’s focus as President to be placed upon the Chinese coronavirus, with concern over the virus evidently a bipartisan sentiment surpassing the deep political divisions of the Union.
Trump and Biden voters report overwhelming scorn for one another, with 5% of the former and 4% of the latter approving of the opposition’s political constituency.
A slim majority of Trump voters reject viewing Joe Biden as a legitimate President.
It’s one thing to lament the disunity and recommend the adoption of a partisan agenda as a tentative solution to the unprecedented decline in social trust in America. The most honest of commentators may be the ones who frankly admit that America’s legal and governing structure isn’t designed for such a scenario and that the solutions aren’t readily available.
