Here we go again with another nutcase “professor” who makes a living off the backs of the taxpayers fomenting political hate. This time a “women’s studies professor” (what else would it be?) is hexing those danged old dangerous Trump supporters who she says will start a civil war to make sure Trump stays in the White House.
“The real questions remaining are how they will respond to his departure, in whatever manner it comes, and whether their response will entail violence, and if so, how much state violence will be necessary in response to maintain order,” this goof exclaimed.

According to the Washington Times:
A woman’s studies professor says that Trump supporters will demand that he be allowed to stay in office after his two terms are up and will foment a violent civil war to keep him in power.
Julie Novkov, also the chairwoman of the political science department at the State University of New York at Albany, said that Mr. Trump’s supporters whom she calls “overt racists” smoldering with “white racial resentment,” will “provoke violence” when he leaves office no matter the circumstances.
“I believe that Trumpers — the core supporters Trump has bound to himself through his consistent and persistent messaging — will not accept as legitimate any means through which he departs from the presidency,” Ms. Novkov wrote in an article last year for New Political Science called “How Do We Solve a Problem Like the Donald?”
“We” can’t, she apparently concludes.
The latest Mr. Trump can constitutionally remain president is when the winner of the 2024 election is sworn in, on Jan. 20, 2025. But according to Ms. Novkov’s surmises about Trump backers, it won’t end there.
“Even if he makes it through two terms, they will vociferously demand that he be permitted a third,” she claims.
Come on. Seriously? What rock did this woman crawl out from, again?
Of course she is a “women’s studies professor, too. This women’s studies stuff is a fake profession in a fake field filled with meaningless twaddle. It is not serious scholarship.
Still, the country has gone through civil war. But, the truth is, since the dawn of leftism just before the turn of the last century, it has been leftists who have been the danger to this country. Most all the political violence that has befallen the United States has been at the hands of Democrats, socialists, communists, anarchists and other left-wingers.
The right has been practically absent from political violence even since the rise of the Democrat Party’s Ku Klux Klan.
So, if the nation has any side of the political aisle to fear it is the left, not Trump’s voters. After all, the only political party in existence today that ever started any American civil war was the Democrat Party.
It really is just that simple.
