A history professor at California State University, Fresno, appears to have advocated for the death of President Donald Trump on Twitter.
Tweets from an account purportedly operated by Professor Lars Maischak call for Trump to “hang” in order to “save American democracy,” and say the only “cure” for racist people is a bullet to their head. The account is not verified, although the bio and interactions between the user and other Twitter users indicate it belongs to the professor.
#TheResistance Has anyone started soliciting money and design drafts for a monument honoring the Trump assassin, yet?— Lars Maischak (@LarsMaischak) February 19, 2017
#TheResistance Mercy towards racists was always the fatal weakness of good Americans. 1865, 1965, they left too many of them alive.— Lars Maischak (@LarsMaischak) February 27, 2017
#WhenCaliforniaSecedes You Fascist Trump-voting white trash scum can wallow in your filthy hell-holes of flyover states. Enjoy.— Lars Maischak (@LarsMaischak) February 23, 2017
The account has existed since June, 2013.
Maischak did not reply to multiple requests for comment.
A spokeswoman for CSU Fresno told The Daily Caller News Foundation Maischak’s comments on social media do not represent the university. “Lars Maischak is employed as a lecturer at Fresno State,” Kathleen Schock told TheDCNF. “Statements made on his personal social media accounts are his alone and are not endorsed by or reflect the position of the University.”
