UNLV Professor Blames Las Vegas Shooting on President Trump [VIDEO]

It’s truly amazing to me how college professors spend half of their lives trying to prove they are smart enough to teach college and then spend the other half of their lives proving the first half of their lives were a complete and utter sham.

The same professors who deny Hillary was responsible for the deaths in Benghazi while she was in complete charge have no problem blaming a Republican for a random act of violence over which he has absolutely no control.

Such is the case with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) professor who lectured her class on why President Trump is responsible for the over 50 deaths in Las Vegas and then shut down anyone who disagreed with her.

UNLV Assistant Professor Tess Winkelmann is seen addressing her History 407 class.  She said:

“when he got elected, I told my classes three semesters ago, some of us won’t be affected by this presidency, but others are going to die. Other people will die because of this.”

“I don’t know whether these events would have inevitably happened whether or not he got elected, but he has the same rhetorical powers every president has, to encourage or discourage.  So far, all he has done is to encourage violence.”

And how did Donald Trump encourage violence?  I examined this question and concluded he must have done it by getting elected.  It’s the only act that he has completed that led to violence and that violence has come from the left.  Is she claiming that Trump has encouraged antifa and BLM to attack police, burn buildings and throw rocks at police?  Or is it just that these people are thugs and useful idiots for extreme leftists like Professor Winkelmann?

From Campus Reform

 Some students weren’t happy with Winkelmann’s comments.

One UNLV student, who spoke with Campus Reform on condition of anonymity, called the speech a “politically-driven rant” to make the point that “President Trump somehow incited this violence.”

“We just experienced one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. History. It’s a mile [sic] away, and we don’t know what happened, we don’t know why it happened, and we’re pushing political agendas, and that’s what this is about, taking advantage of the situation for political belief, when we should be uniting, healing as a community,” the student remarked.

“At every chance the President got, he condemned this violence. The professor is taking away from the dialogue that should be happening to attack the President,” the student added. “Professors are in a position of trust, and they’re abusing it to promote their political ideology or agenda. I think it’s dangerous when you blame the President for a massacre, and basically shut down students who disagree.”

“I think it is despicable that a professor at an institute of higher learning, one that is located in the same city in which this attack occurred, would use her platform to spew such hatred and divisive rhetoric,” agreed another student, who also wishes to remain anonymous.

The second student did, however, say the incident was not entirely surprising because “this professor had previously made comments in opposition to Trump.”

Campus Reform reached out to Assistant Professor Tess Winkelmann, but did not receive a response in time for publication.
