Professor Tweets That He’s Proud To Teach ‘Future Dead Cops’

A far-left economics professor at the City University of New York has sparked a firestorm of controversy after taking to Twitter to celebrate that his job allows him to “teach future dead cops” and further his anti-fascist agenda.

Michael Isaacson, who works in the CUNY criminal justice college’s economics department, posted the inflammatory tweets on August 23 and has since found himself in the crosshairs of New York’s largest labor union representing police officers.

“Some of y’all 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,” Isaacson wrote, garnering dozens of likes.

He then followed up with a tongue-in-cheek imagining of how he would kill a student-turned-cop with a sword before capping off the thread with the pseudo hashtag: “jokes about my students getting executed in the rev.”

Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, condemned Isaacson’s tweet and called on CUNY to fire him immediately.

“Michael Isaacson harbors total disdain for the active and future police officers that he teaches at John Jay College,” he said. “Recent media reports have revealed Mr. Isaacson’s disgusting anti-police attitudes and his gleeful embrace of political violence, including violence against police officers, as expressed in his own social media postings.”

In a letter to John Jay President Carol Mason, Lynch blasted the school’s decision to hire and harbor someone like Isaacson as “absolutely outrageous,” noting that the college “counts an overwhelming number of New York City police officers as among its students, alumni and faculty members.”

On Thursday, Isaacson appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” where he was taken to task by host Tucker Carlson for “blurring the lines” between physical violence and speech which he disagrees with.

When pressed as to whether he teaches his students to ignore the First Amendment when they do not agree with the speaker, Isaacson offered: “I teach them to think critically, and that’s why I’m very open about my anti-fascism and my anarchism.”
