Fresno State prof who said Trump must hang: ‘Supporting Trump is morally equivalent to murder for hire’

Fresno State prof Trump assassinated death
Lars Maischak

Lars Maischak, the Fresno State history lecturer who is under fire for a tweet in which he advocated hanging President Donald Trump, has claimed — more than once — that he doesn’t support or advocate violence.  But a trip through the fever swamp cleverly disguised as his Twitter timeline, tells a different story.

Most of the media reporting on his offensive message has primarily focused on two messages.  But there’s a whole lot more, and they’re every bit as unhinged as the ones you may have already seen.  We posted some of them here, but thought it would be interesting to reveal more of his random “thoughts.”  Like this missive from January 20, in which he said that supporting Trump “is morally equivalent to murder for hire.”


He also suggested punching Democrats in the face should they call for national unity:


And suggested getting rid of capitalism:


And expressed hatred for then-Vice President-elect Mike Pence:


On the day after Christmas, he attacked Christianity:


He called for a general strike to bring Trump down:



And expressed hatred for the Constitution:


Before Christmas, he attacked white people, citing a story that was thoroughly debunked:


He has argued for socialism…


Advocated what looks like a violent insurrection…


Suggested that Republicans have engaged in mass murder by not marching in lock-step to liberal global warming dogma…


Has repeatedly compared Republicans to Nazis…


As well as Trump supporters…


We can go on, but you get the idea.  Now, Marschak is whining that conservatives and Trump supporters are taking him to task for his tweets.  Poor baby.

My good friend Josh Bernstein minced no words and hammered Maischak in this week’s video, which is pretty rough:

Yes, Maischak has the right to express himself.  He even has the right to hate Trump.  That’s the beautiful thing about the First Amendment.  But that freedom cuts both ways.  If Maischak engages in this kind of rhetoric, he should expect a fair amount of backlash.  That’s the way it works.

The problem, however, is that Maischak isn’t just some random leftist wandering down the street.  He’s a teacher.  At an institution of higher learning.  Teaching a captive audience of young impressionable minds.  With that position comes some responsibility.

The college has a duty to provide a safe and welcoming learning environment for all students, regardless of political or religious views.  If I were a young conservative Christian who supported Trump and became aware of these tweets, I would no longer feel safe in his classroom.  If I had a child in that class, I would be concerned for his or her safety.

That’s why I started this change.org petition.  The college needs to put the safety of their students before anything else and take disciplinary action against this teacher.
