Can you imagine a professor calling out all cops be strangled? Bizarre, but with the leftists, nothing is really strange.
In August, Nathan Jun, a Midwestern State University professor, called for all cops to be strangled to death. The professor has since received death threats.
Jun teaches “Health Care Ethics,” “Multicultural Philosophy,” “Philosophy of Race and Racism,” “Philosophy of Horror and Macabre,” etc., according to his faculty page.
Jun posted the threat on Facebook that has become instantly viral. The post consists of a grisly photo of capitalists and police officers.
According to the College Fix, the professor wrote, “I want the entire world to burn until the last cop is strangled with the intestines of the last capitalist, who is strangled in turn with the intestines of the last politician.”
On Friday, KFDX-TV reported Midwestern State University’s public statement supporting Jun’s free speech.
The statement began as recognizing and protecting individual’s free speech rights to promote a free exchange of ideas and information without threat of retaliation of censorship.
According to Midwestern State University, individuals will occasionally express opinions that may be offensive to other people and even shocking. Nonetheless, the First Amendment protects them. The university also said they free the faculty members from institutional censorship or discipline when they speak or write as citizens within the law.
“Though we take advantage of every opportunity to encourage all members of the campus community to express their opinions in a civil, respectful manner, we view avoidance of censorship as an important part of maintaining the culture of diversity of opinion and academic freedom that is so important to our role as a public university,” the statement concluded.
However, the philosophy professor said it is vital to take all of his comments in context. The lack thereof “helped gin up the latest in a long line of violent, hysterical attacks against [his] person and property,” said Jun, according to the Fix.
“Dead Legendre,” a social media user, shared Jun’s explanation of the context to his “comrades.”
Jun said he received several death threats 24 hours after speaking in a rally for Breonna Taylor on September 24. It escalated after “fascists” disseminated his comment on a friend’s Facebook page.
The professor mentioned the report of KFDX-TV, citing more than 300 deaths he received by email, phone, private message, and text. He said his home was vandalized for the fifth time since June, which forced him to relocate to a hotel.
Jun told KFDX about his yearning for a utopian society without politicians and police.
“I do long to live in a world in which we no longer have cops, which we no longer have capitalists, and which we no longer have politicians,” the professor admitted. “Because those are my political beliefs, and I own them, and I make no apologies for those beliefs.”
