A California State University-Fresno professor allegedly tweeted out back in February that “to save American democracy” President Trump “must hang,” and “for each deported immigrant” two Republicans should be executed.
The Daily Caller reports the Twitter account in question appears to belong to Lars Maischak, a history professor who also, in a bout of “originality,” compared the president to … Hitler.

“Has anyone started soliciting money and design drafts for a monument honoring the Trump assassin, yet?” the user wrote in another tweet a few days later, along with the hashtag “TheResistance.”
And in another: “#TheResistance #ethniccleansing Justice = The execution of two Republicans for each deported immigrant.”
The user has also said “mercy towards racists” is a “fatal weakness” of Americans.
“#TheResistance Mercy towards racists was always the fatal weakness of good Americans,” he tweeted. “1865, 1965, they left too many of them alive.”
Other tweets include thoughts on “fascist” Trump supporters and the GOP.
“#WhenCaliforniaSecedes, You Fascist Trump-voting white trash scum can wallow in your filthy hell-holes of flyover states,” he tweeted. “Enjoy.”

According to Maischak’s university page, he got his Ph.D. from Johns “Hopkiins” University.
The university said the professor’s views “are his alone and are not endorsed by or reflect the position of the University.”
