Leftist hate speaker draws flak

The history professor at California State University, Fresno who appeared to advocate for the death of President Donald Trump on Twitter has apologized profusely and taken a temporary leave of absence in an undisclosed location because he now fears for his personal safety.

The professor, Lars Maischak, composed the tweets around the end of February. The tweets called for Trump to “hang” in order to “save American democracy.” “The sooner and the higher, the better.” The only “cure” for racist people is a bullet to their head, the tweets also said. Maischak used hashtags including “#TheResistance” and “#DeathToFascism.”

Maischak says he now deeply regrets composing and publishing the tweets.

“I ask forgiveness of those who felt threatened or offended by them,” Maischak wrote in a statement obtained by the Los Angeles Times. “It was never my intent to harm anyone, nor to encourage others to harm anyone.”

Maischak lamented that he has received a “flood of threats and hate-mail” for tweeting that the president and various racists should be murdered.

Maischak is now facing an investigation by the Secret Service. He has offered his complete cooperation, he said.

The professor had just 28 Twitter followers before his incendiary remarks on Twitter made him instantly infamous.

People say stupid things all the time. One bad moment or act of stupidity should be able to be corrected with an apology or "mea cupla."

However, this guy did more than one series of tweets. After the tweets he made exploded, he doubled down on his stupidity. While the tweets may have been excused as a bad moment, he later released a long statement restating the same thing and even more.

The statement can be found here and should be read:

Now that there is real heat from people and his university, suddenly Maischak is sorry for those he offended - not for being offensive or saying stupid things.. But what he is not doing and has not done is back away from his original tweets or followup statement.

He is not sorry for his actions or words. He is only sorry that he was exposed for the vile person he is,
