Women’s Studies Professor Wishes President Trump Would Get Shot

In a now-deleted Tweet, Allred reportedly posted, “Trump is a f***ing joke. I wish someone would just shoot him outright.”

A professor, who had previously been given a psychiatric evaluation after his former employer, Rutgers University, reported him to police, has proven that he might need another one.  Kevin Allred—who once taught a class about singer Beyonce and her all-powerful lyrics as they related to relevant matters—began creeping people out with his militant anti-Trump speech on campus and Twitter following the results of the Presidential Election.

He was ultimately reported to police following comments he made threatening to kill white people.  Allred was also forced by Twitter to remove a polarizing post where he asked if conservatives would still care about the Second Amendment if guns killed more white people.

Proving that he hasn’t learned anything, Kevin Allred is back in the news.  This time, he has upped the ante on his madness.  In a now-deleted Tweet, Allred reportedly posted, “Trump is a f***ing joke. I wish someone would just shoot him outright.”  He also retweeted the grotesque and highly controversial photo of Kathy Griffin holding up the mock decapitated head of President Donald Trump.

He also went on a Twitter tirade referring to President Trump as a “traitor and a terrorist.”  Allred has since defended his post calling for someone to shoot the President of the United States by saying wishing for his death is different from making a direct threat on his life.  Many users didn’t buy that reasoning and Allred was blasted for his remarks.

The fact that this man continues to teach is absolutely astounding.  Allred is now a professor at Montclair State University, which leads me to speculate that things didn’t end well for him at Rutgers after his psych evaluation.  It also appears that Montclair State University has removed Allred’s name from their website after being associated with this latest controversy.

It’s hard to believe Allred is a professor of women’s studies.  This is a professor who taught an in depth class comparing Beyonce’s song lyrics to historic African-Americans and their writings.  Clearly, he places stock in the power of words.

There’s a great deal of hypocrisy to be found among social justice warriors regarding speech.  One minute they’re protesting and rioting against conservative speakers for “hate speech” and the next it’s okay to call for the shooting death of a sitting president.  So which is it?  There’s an awful lot of room left for interpretation among people like Kevin Allred.  Calling for violent acts against activists or even organizations like the ACLU would absolutely be met with outcry on a massive scale.

The fact President Trump isn’t exactly a favorite among the “woke” crowd doesn’t negate from the fact that hypocrisy is flourishing among activists and all-around disgruntled citizens of the United States.  How can society expect people to accept alternative pronouns for transgender people because “words hurt” but sanction language calling upon the death of our commander-in-chief?

It’s my every hope that Kevin Allred loses his current employment as well.  He has no business teaching college students, let alone in the field of women’s studies.
