Professor Calls For Trump's Assassination - Pays The Price

A professor made some political comments on Twitter, and he's now facing the consequences. He was fired from his university for his extremist political rants. He recently posted the controversial photo of Kathy Griffin holding a lifelike model of President Donald Trump's severed head, and called for someone to shoot Trump. The ex-professor is furious and believes it is a violation of his free speech, but many worry that he just goes overboard.

Kevin Allred was once employed at Rutgers University, but then Donald Trump won the presidential election. Allred couldn't seem to handle it. The professor was frightening people on campus so much with his ranting and raving over the election outcome that his employer called the police and had him admitted to Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital to undergo a mental evaluation.

Allred had been threatening to burn the flat, abuse gun laws and 'kill white people'. Police showed up at his home in Brooklyn for questioning and he was brought by ambulance to a psychiatric hospital.

"Rutgers police told them I'm a threat based on political statements I've made on campus and on Twitter. This is for exercising my ... First Amendment rights," the professor complained in a series of tweets after he had been released. "They've forced me to now undergo a psychiatric evaluation at the hospital. They brought me by ambulance tho i'm not under arrest technically. And this is for exercising my f--king first amendment rights. i'm being labeled a threat and put in a psych hospital."

The professor argues that he never made actual threats, but brought up hypothetical scenarios in class to illustrate a point. He talked with students about forms of protest, such as burning the flag. "Then I made a comment, essentially saying, 'Would people feel the same way about being so lenient with the Second Amendment if people went out and got guns to shoot random white people?'"

Students filed complaints against Allred to the university.

After that incident, Allred left Rutgers under unclear circumstances; the university notes he was not terminated.

Allred secured a new position at Montclair State University. The adjunct professor who taught Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies planned to teach a course called 'Politicizing Beyoncé'. Before he even started teaching, he says the university fired him. He blames the 'Trump trolls' on Twitter for complaining about him.

Just last week, Allred tweeted about President Trump, "I wish someone would just shoot him outright."

He also retweeted the controversial image of comedian Kathy Griffin holding up a severed head, dripping with blood, that’s supposed to be Trump. Griffin’s career took a major hit after the stunt.

Shortly after those posts, Allred ranted about losing his job with Montclair State. "[S]o FYI...Montclair State has fired me before I even started teaching there. Congrats to the Trump trolls. [B]ut you're still not special. [T]his is not the f--king gross and politically regressive world [I] want to live in. [T]rump's base lashes out and everyone listens. [D]isgusting."

Allred later added that 'saying you wish [D]onald [T]rump was dead is different than making a direct threat against him'.
