The Borg-like collective known as the modern American left is quite literally going insane over President-elect Donald J. Trump’s historic victory.  On Wednesday, the New York Daily News reported that Kevin Allred, a “Trump-bashing Rutgers University professor,” was taken to the psych ward at Bellevue Hospital for disturbing statement he reportedly made on Twitter and in the classroom.

According to the New York Daily News:

In a tweet the day after Donald Trump was elected President, Allred warned: “If I see any Trump bumper stickers on the road today, my brakes will go out and I’ll run you off the road.”

Rutgers officials issued a statement saying the university was responding to a student complaint about Allred.

“The Rutgers University Police Department … took all appropriate action,” said Rutgers spokesman Jeffrey Tolvin. “We have no further comment.”

NBC New York added:

One tweet posted on Tuesday showed an American flag being ignited. In another, he said “will the 2nd amendment be as cool when i buy a gun and start shooting atrandom white people or no…?”

Allred added that Rutgers police had told him they were unable to contact him but he had no missed calls or emails from the department.

He also tweeted that students should all participate in a walk-out planned for Rutgers’ New Brunswick campus in opposition of Trump’s election. Similar demonstrations were held across the country.

“The doctors were like, ‘This is ridiculous, why did they bring you here?’” Allred told The New York Daily News. “And I said, ‘That’s what I thought, but they told me they had to do it.’”

He later blamed Trump for his unhinged comments and the reaction from authorities.

The Daily News added:

“Rutgers police told them I’m a threat based on political statements I’ve made on campus and on Twitter,” Allred tweeted after the cops arrived at his home. “And this is for exercising my … First Amendment rights.

“I’m being labeled a threat and put in a psych hospital. Trump’s crackdown on free speech has absolutely begun.”

Let’s see if we can parse this, shall we?  He talks about running Trump supporters off the road and shooting random white people and it’s Trump’s fault that the police were called?

He later went after Twitter users not fond of his online rants:

And it seems he’s not too fond of Christians or Christianity:

He also mentioned that he wasn’t arrested or charged and the doctors released him fairly quickly.

I gotta say, though, looking through this guy’s timeline, I’m reminded of another rather unhinged individual.
