Tucker vs Antifa supporter: you’re really a professor?

A former criminal justice adjunct professor whose social media posts proclaimed his “privilege to be the upcoming dead cops” has doubled down, with regard to “pig death stats” in response to a recent spate of police officers killed on duty.

“My favorite thing about the pig death statistics is how they just suddenly kill them all on duty together, or they are murdered, or simply a heart attack from all the donuts,” read a tweet from @ve_unblockedt, one of the two well-known accounts for Michael Isaacson. The tweet was posted on the same day, a police commander was shot dead in the heart of Chicago, making him the 11th officer to be killed by gunfire in the entire country this year.

Isaacson, who has made use of the hashtag #abolishpolice, the most recently learned from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, one of america’s highest-profile schools for pupils planning a career in law enforcement.

Isaacson, whose employment in the John Jay ended last year, with no official announcement on Tuesday also tweeted he had no second thoughts about the “future dead cops” tweet that sparked the original controversy. On the page with the title “anti-fascist superbowl champions,” he said, “Yes, I have no regrets of my future dead cops tweet at all.”

Isaacson also tweeted in the aftermath of Wednesday’s deadly high school shooting in Florida. Comparing the assassin to the AMERICAN army, Isaacson tweeted: “How are you going to crying tears about mass shooters, and then turn around to say dumbass s— like ‘support our troops’?”

Isaacson had mocked enforcement of the law in the raw, hostile conditions on social media for some time for the call in September last year, which occurred after he appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight. During his appearance he defended Antifa, the left-wing group that has used violence against his opponents.

John Jay College spokeswoman Doreen Viñas-Pineda confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday in an e-mail that “Mr. Isaacson is no longer the education or the service of the John Jay.” Yet questions remain about the severing of the ties between the university and the Isaacson, which happened quietly, months after his tweets made the headlines.

Reached by phone on Wednesday, Isaacson told Fox News he would not answer any questions, and hung up.

As in the past, the proponents of enforcement of the law struck Isaacson’s latest comments.

“He is the incarnation of the lunatic fringe,” said Randy Sutton, a former Las Vegas police lieutenant and national spokesman for the Blue Life, which advocates on behalf of the enforcement of the law. “Here is a man who seeks not only radical ideas, but ignorant views.

“When you espouse violence against the police and the disgraceful plea to end enforcement of the law as we know it in this country, it shows a lack of knowledge of what the consequences would be, that would be chaos and anarchy.”

Patrick Lynch, head of New York City Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, on Wednesday raided John Jay for not cutting the ties with Isaacson faster.

how are you going to crying tears about mass shooters, and then turn around to say dumbass shit like “support our troops”?

“Michael Isaacson had no business spreading his crackpot ideas and hateful anti-police views anywhere, much less in a classroom full of future police officers,” Lynch said. “He would have been fired immediately and publicly, not quietly let go months after the fact.”

Viñas-Pineda e-mail to Fox News, a link to a statement from the college president Karol V. Mason issued last year about Isaacson’s comments.

“I was shocked by these statements,” Mason said in the statement. “They are horrible. I’m shocked that anyone associated with John Jay, with our proud history of supporting the law enforcement authorities, that would suggest that violence against the police is ever acceptable. The safety of our families and communities and deserve our respect.”

Sutton said that the situation raises questions about the screening of the process and the standards for the teachers.

“How he got the responsibility of educating people is great,” said Sutton. “In that position of authority which he would have done a large part of the damage influencing young people.”
