Fresno State prof doubles down, suggests a ‘death sentence’ against Trump ‘inevitable’

He claims to not want violence but an examination of his Twitter feed reveals something much different.

Fresno State prof Trump assassinated death
Lars Maischak

Earlier, we reported that Lars Maischak, a history teacher at Fresno State, issued a tweet in which he said that President Trump must be hanged to “save American democracy.”  The Fresno Bee published a puff piece on Saturday wringing its collective hands that published a report on his offensive tweet, which prompted Maishak to declare that he really doesn’t want Trump harmed or assassinated.  But he wasn’t finished, suggesting that a death sentence against Trump is “inevitable” if “democracy prevails.”

According to the Fresno Bee:

Maischak said Saturday evening that he does not condone violence and has no intention of becoming violent. “From the context of the entirety of my tweets, this should be evident to anyone reading them in good faith (as opposed to malicious intent),” he said in an email.

He said the Breitbart article displays his tweets out of context and describes the notoriety he has gotten as a “character assassination.” Maischak said he has received a lot of hate mail, but it hasn’t deterred him from wanting to speak his mind.

“The function of articles like the one produced by Breitbart and affiliates is to whip up a digital lynch-mob of people sending threats and insults to my email and Twitter accounts, with the ultimate goal of silencing dissenters,” he said.

Out of context?  Really?  Let’s take a look at some of Maischak’s other tweets, shall we?

How about this Feb 21 tweet in which he plainly suggests a bullet to the head for those he thinks are “racists.”

Rather difficult to take that out of context, isn’t it?  Meanwhile, he wants you to believe he doesn’t condone violence.  Right…

Then there’s this:

Here’s one the Bee forgot to mention:

And this:

And another the Bee forgot to mention:

That really sounds like someone not advocating for Trump’s assassination, right?

What about this:

He also issued a tweet suggesting members of the military rise up against Trump:

Here’s another:

And this:

And this tweet from January in which he appears to advocate for a second bloody civil war:

And these two tweets from last December:

Anyone looking at this person’s Twitter feed can easily get the impression that Maischak absolutely hates Trump, hates everyone who voted for him, views the GOP and anyone to the right of Stalin as Nazis and racists who either needs a bullet to the head or a one-way ticket to Russia.

And if you disagree, you’re probably a fascist Nazi.  Or something.

He also claimed that he keeps his private views separate from his teaching, but this tweet would suggest otherwise:

Note to the Fresno Bee:  Maybe you should take a deeper look at this guy’s Twitter feed before you do another puff piece…

Update: A petition demanding Maischak be fired can be seen here.
