California Professor Who Repeatedly Called for Cops to Be Murdered Is Still Employed So We'll Soon Have All the NeverTrumpers Rousing Themselves to Defend His Right to Free Speech

They won't defend your rights, but they accrue career benefits (the good favor of liberal TV bookers and Atlantic articles editors) from defending leftwingers' rights to free speech, so expect a vigorous defense of this guy.

If you haven't heard of Joshua Clover before now, allow me to introduce him. Clover is a tenured professor at the University of California, Davis, and the author of nearly a dozen books. He’s also a big fan of social media, or at least he used to be. Before taking his Twitter account private, it seems that the professor really enjoyed mixing it up with other users, including a number of charming tweets where he wished that more police officers would be murdered. Even in California, that was a bridge too far for some, but Clover remains on the faculty to this day.

Jazz Shaw quotes some bon mots from CBS Sacramento:

UC Davis is condemning a professor’s inflammatory statements where he said cops "need to be killed." English professor Joshua Clover reportedly wrote several tweets and made comments in a 2015 interview with SF Weekly where he referenced violence against law enforcement officers.

"People think that cops need to be reformed. They need to be killed," Clover said in response to the question “What’s wrong with society today?"

Several old tweets from Clover’s followed the same criticism of law enforcement.

"I am thankful that every living cop will one day be dead, some by their own hand, some by others, too many of old age #letsnotmakemore," Clover reportedly tweeted on Nov. 27, 2014.
