UC Riverside professor Reza Aslan has a long history of profanity-laden, hate-filled, violent tweets and his latest Twitter storm is no exception.
In response to the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, over the weekend, Aslan---who has joined many Democrats in blaming President Trump for the white supremacist-inspired shooting, while ignoring the leftist political leanings of the Dayton, Ohio, shooter who struck the same weekend---attacked first daughter Ivanka Trump, tweeting, "F--- you and your entire white supremacist family." He then directed his venom towards Trump administration spokesperson Kellyanne Conway, calling her an "evil" that "we need to eradicate."
Finally, as blogger Gary Fouse points out, Aslan went ballistic, labeling Trump "a white nationalist terror leader," all his supporters "white nationalist terror supporters," and MAGA hats the equivalent of a "KKK hood," while calling for "this evil racist scourge" to be "eradicated from society." In other words, Aslan responded to violence committed by unhinged individuals---whatever their motivations---by calling for violence against at least half the country.
One wonders if there's anything UC Riverside would find unacceptable for one of its professors to be spewing on social media. In the case of Reza Aslan, the answer would seem to be a resounding "no."
