The term “Antifa,” which stands for Anti-Fascists, has grown in popularity among the Left for quite some time now. One college professor took it too far, and Tucker Carlson set forward to right this wrong.
Mike Isaacson is a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and is the founder of a group called Smash Racism D.C. Isaacson is currently in the middle of some serious trouble after he sent provocative messages on social media, and went toe to toe with Fox News host Tucker Carlson. According to NY Daily News, Isaacson was fired after his derogatory message, stating, “Some of y‘all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.”
The college contacted The Daily Caller with an official statement. The college president, Karol V. Mason, announced that Isaacson had been placed on administrative leave following his disturbing message.
Mason wrote, “Many of you may be aware of recent statements made by a John Jay College adjunct on social media, television and in the press.” He was referencing the comment about teaching “future dead cops,” amongst other things.
The official statement continued, “I want to state clearly that I was shocked by these statements. They are abhorrent. This adjunct expressed personal views that are not consistent with our college’s well known and firm values and principles and my own personal standards and principles.”
Isaacson then went into the frying pan when he appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight last Thursday. The topic at hand was Isaacson’s inexcusable defense for being a member of Antifa.
The professor explained that he believes that he is doing what is necessary to stop the flow of “violence” throughout the country. The irony seems to have escaped him that he is combating fascism by beating up people who do not think the same way that he does, all the while boasting about teaching future dead cops.
Tucker asked Isaacson if he teaches his students that the First Amendment rights don’t apply to people that they disagree with. He skirted around the question and instead insisted that he teaches his students to think critically.
It would appear that Isaacson’s definition of “thinking critically” entails thinking only the way he does. He went on to explain that he has taught kids who did not agree with him in the past with no problems.
But there is a problem, and that is the fact that these are the “future dead cops” that he tweeted about previously. It is evident that this is how he thinks of his students when he isn’t “on the clock,” and likely represent his feelings while he is teaching as well.
This is not the kind of environment that students need to be in. It is toxic to their ability to learn, and putting a thick coating of political paint on what should be something as simple as criminal justice and law is counterproductive.
This is only one of many teachers who share this mindset. Colleges around the country are filled with professors who hate cops, hate people who think differently than they do and, and they hate the First Amendment.
