There’s an old saying about truth being stranger than fiction, and today’s piece of news will make your head spin. Enter Michael Isaacson, who is a guy living a double life, just like in The Matrix: during the day, he’s an adjunct professor at New York’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where, as you’ve already guessed it, he teaches cops for a living, pays his taxes and he’s generally a true-blue Mr. Anderson living the American dream.
However, during the night, things are very different, as Michael Isaacson is one of the founders of a Washington DC based-self styled antifa organization called Smash Racism DC. The John Jay College of Criminal Justice is a NY public college, which means that Michael is getting paid from taxpayers dollars, but let that go.
Another thing to contemplate is the fact that the John Jay College of Criminal Justice is a certified New York City Police Academy and as a consequence, is well known for training NY’s best, i.e. active members/newly hired members of the NYcity police department. Now comes the fun part. Here’s a tweet by a John Jay College of Criminal Justice faculty member released back in August:
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

Here’s our guy on Tucker Carlson Show:
Yes indeed, the same guy who is teaching cops says he hopes they’ll soon get killed on the job. And that has nothing to do with a potential conflict of interests, right? Obviously, the Antifa version of Mike has other strange ideas, besides teaching dead cops, as he seems to believe that violence is perfectly okay as long as it is used against public demonstrations/rallies organized by “Nazis”. In case you did not notice, a Nazi is a vague term describing all people who are not die-hard leftists/Dems (including Trump voters), so it’s ok to punch Nazis and all that liberal nonsense. But let’s quote our guy:
There is the question of whether these people should feel safe organizing as Nazis in public, and I don’t think they should.
Needless to say, the guy who teaches law enforcement doesn’t like cops much:
“I don’t have a problem with individual police officers — I mean, I teach them — but I don’t like policing as an institution. Police officers are agents of that institution.”
After the faculty got word of his strange views of the world, especially the “dead cops” thingy, Mike Isaacson was put on administrative leave. However, he fired back at his detractors (which includes NY’s mayor De Blasio who condemned his vile anti-police rhetoric ), claiming that his firing was a nail in the coffin of free speech and academic freedom.
It’s funny how this guy who believes that the first amendment (freedom of speech for millennials) need not apply to Nazis (whatever that means) and other people he disapproves of, as they’re prone to beatings and violence antifa style if they dare to show up in public, also claims that criticizing his “future dead cops” tweet represents a first amendment violation.
And speaking of academic freedom, this is from the American Association of University Professors statement Statement of Principles :
“When [academics] speak or write as citizens, they should be free from institutional censorship or discipline, but their special position in the community imposes special obligations… [T]hey should remember that the public may judge their profession and their institution by their utterances.”
