A womens studies professor predicts President Trumps supporters, whom she calls overt racists, will provoke violence when Trump leaves the Oval Office even if it is after two terms.
Julie Novkov, chair of the political science department at the State University of New York at Albany, concludes in a recent article for New Political Science that Trump supporters having political power is dangerous.
She defines core Trump supporters as overt racists who view immigrants, blacks, Muslims, and Jews as enemies of the American state and are particularly inclined to embrace propaganda."
The public university professor argues there are no good options for the country with Trump supporters in power.
At best it might shift some areas of the country back to the political configuration common in some areas of the American south in the 1920s, she wrote, when gaudy populist racism vied with conservative, racist legitimation projects for hegemony entirely within the Democratic Party.
The alternative, Novkov argues, is that Trumpers could provoke violence and place the nation in the position of having to engage in its violent suppression.
Whether it is impeachment, resignation, failure to win re-election, or death, Novkov believes Trump supporters will riot when he leaves office....

The Left is strategically planning violence and insurrection after their Nov election loss.
LOL SO much projection there.
LOL these lunatics lie about us so much that they believe their lies, never having actually met any Trump supporters. Check out some of the #Walkaway videos. Liberal after liberal discovers that conservatives, Republicans and Trump supporters respect them and treat them courteously regardless of their political opinions. But if they stray so much as a word from the left’s talking points they are ridiculed, ostracized, etc.
They are literally converting their own members to the right.
It is so disconcerting. I feel like we are somehow failing.
In other news, that Berkley professor caught beating a Trump supporter’s head with a bike lock was sentenced to six months probation, a sentence he will no doubt wear as a badge of honor in “intellectual” circles.
Easy fix ... have it so he doesn’t leave office, problem solved.
It depends on the circumstances of his leaving office. If he’s impeached, yeah, maybe. If he’s replaced by a fascist left-wing dictator, yeah, maybe.
Obama supporters are wreaking much violence since he left office.
I think she has seen the rioters in cities when the local pro sport team wins the championship. She fails to understand that those out rioting are the ones who vote for Dems, not Repubs....
There hasn’t been a single instance of “Trump supporters” provoking violence. There are hundreds of documented instances of Trumper supporters being the target of unprovoked violence by infantile insane Leftists.
Article is pure hysteria drivel.
On October 4, 2014 Michael Medved said on the air, during the national debate on the issue, that there was no chance that the Washington Redskins would be using that name in five years. I made a note to remind myself to send an email to him when that date passes and his lilly livered prediction is proven wildly off the mark.
Someone needs to remind this prof of this prediction in January 2025 when the usual orderly transition of power comes and goes.
How does an extremist ignoramus such as Julie Novkov get elevated to the position of chair of the political science department at the State University of New York at Albany?
Rhetorical question only - the answer is painfully obvious - once a single leftist ‘fellow traveler’ manages to worm their way into a position of authority within any institution, they will do whatever it takes to surround themselves with their own ilk while chasing away the sane and competent ones.
Random unprovoked violence?
Acceptable political discourse?
Insignificant, "din do nuttin", nonviolent peer pressure?
What is it that Rush always said? If you want to know what a liberals true intentions are just look at what they are accusing conservatives of doing!!
I don’t have a problem with LEGAL immigrants, blacks, Muslims, and Jews or anyone else.
I pity morons like this “professor” though.
