The head of New York City’s largest police union is calling for the firing of a John Jay College professor after he tweeted “it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.”

Professor Michael Isaacson, a self-proclaimed member of the Antifa movement who works in the economics department at the CUNY Manhattan college, tweeted from the account @VulgarEconomics: “Some of ya’ll might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops” on Aug. 23.

Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association boss Pat Lynch wrote a letter Karol Mason, president of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, demanding the “immediate dismissal” of Isaacson.

Isaacson on Friday said in an email to The New York Post: “I critique policing as an institution which operates at the behest of a state that increasingly represents the weapons and prison industry rather than the public they’re supposed to serve through decades of gerrymandering by both Republicans and Democrats.”

“I illuminate this fact in my classes in the hopes that my students are able to choose a career path that does not put them in the position of having to act as an agent of that institution,” the professor wrote.

Where do these idiots come from, they keep popping up like bad weeds. It is scary that this type of individual is educating our youth.

Just think about this! All of us send our children to college to provide them with a career that will assist them in contributing to society. We pay tens of thousands per year to our higher learning institutes to have scum bag liberal professor like Isaacson pouring BS into their heads. Instead of sending your child off to college bankroll him/her into a Dunkin Donuts business at least you'll have free coffee.

I saw this idiot "professor" on Tucker (Fox) and I thought he was inarticulate, ignorant of what a fascist really is (what he actually IS), overtly leftist, anti-cop and pro anarchist (admitted he is one) As I watched this clown I was thinking to myself that I would never send my child to any class (or college) that allowed him to teacher there. Then I see this "tweet" today and now its beyond laughing at him, he is dangerous. He should be immediately fired from his position at John Jay. There have been countless NYPD and other cops who paid good money to earn degrees for there and as alumni they should march on the Deans office and demand his termination or to everything in their power to keep anyone involved in Law Enforcement from even consider John Jay and further boycott any companies that support that institution. Lets fight "them"the way they fight "us". These "towers of higher learning"need to be taught there are consequences to employing these types of raving anti cop lunitics

Professorr??? You mean Terrorist.!!! Fired would be to nice...Lock Him Up....Antifa is now considered a terrorist organization and it's time to dismantle ASAP.

I saw this idiot on Tucker Carlson's show the other night. He is an anarchist who promotes violence against cops and government but collects his paycheck from a university which is probably funded by the government.

Professor Isaacson should be fired, investigated and locked up. He freely admits to being Anti Fa. They aer a terrorist organization and those who belong to it or any other domestic terrorist or terorist organization should be dealt with severely. They are a big threat to this country. They are Communists.

"They keep popping up like bad weeds" because society has gone far too long without applying weed killer.

kojack58 @ 9/16/2017 11:57 AM

We need to go into his classroom arrest his antifa ass and put him up in front of a judge and if I had my way hang him in the square for all the other antifa idiots to see what they will get for their terrorist actions.

judgegarrett @ 9/17/2017 6:52 AM

Not much respect for the rule of law here. Shocking.

Redneckican13 @ 9/23/2017 8:47 AM

I want to do if this thinks he's a bad ass.. If so I want to challange him to a good ol fashion ass whippin event... Note he's gonna be knocked the [email protected]#k out by me.

Here's a thought...let's have 3 days of anarchy at John Jay. Anyone can come on campus and do anything they want without threat of any interference or repercussions from the police or the "weapons and prison industry". Sorta like The Purge. Let's see how long this skinny little twerp would last. I would wanna see and hear this little sissy change his tune and squeal for help from the "fascist police."

Stacy Arebalo @ 9/23/2017 2:18 PM

Well like a terrorists, John Jay is getting the best results out of this discussion. It's what he wanted and expected for the liberation. Congratulations on being America's Most Wanted.

Hurt him by not attending his class. Make him irrelevant.

That's professor Turkey neck!
