A history professor at a major American university blasted President Trump in a recently published editorial; claiming the Commander-in-Chief is the “first fascist President” in US history.
Drexel University professor Robert Zaller published the piece in the college’s student newspaper, titled “It has happened here: Fascism in the United States.” In it, the educator says the US is now “in the deepest and most awful trouble any of us have known.”
“What defines a fascist? Firstly, a fascist denies the rule of law. This means that he knows no will but his own, and recognizes no limit on his power. To achieve such power, he must defy, circumvent, or simply ignore all other established authority, and destroy the institutions through which it is exercised,” writes the professor.
“It has happened here. In Donald J. Trump, America now has its first fascist president,” adds Zaller. “Trump is as much a product of our country as Hitler and Mussolini were of theirs.”

BUSTED: Anti-Trump NYU Professor Caught Posting PERSONAL ICE Employee Data Online
A self-proclaimed professor at New York University attempted to compile and publish the personal data of over 1,500 ICE employees on the internet this week, with Twitter and other platforms “shutting down” his illegal efforts.
According to Fox News, the professor created an online database after scraping personal data from LinkedIn profiles and other media platforms; saying “As ICE continues to ramp up its inhumane surveillance and detention efforts, I believe it’s important to document what’s happening, and by whom, in any way we can.”
Twitter and other social media platforms took down the data over security and privacy concerns for those “unmasked” as ICE employees.
“We removed the project because it violates our community guidelines,” a GitHub spokesperson said. “In general, we have policies against use of GitHub for doxxing and harassment, and violating a third party’s privacy.”

CHRISTMAS CANCELED: University Professor Says ‘Jingle Bells’ Rooted in Racism
A liberal theater professor at world-renowned Boston University raised eyebrows on Friday, after she claimed the iconic Christmas song ‘Jingle Bells’ has “racist origins” that were “systematically removed from its history.”
Kyna Hamill, a theater historian at the left-leaning college, trashed the legendary song in her survey paper, titled “The story I must tell: ‘Jingle Bells’ in the Minstrel Repertoire.”
Jingle Bells has “racist origins”?
In it, she claims the holiday song has a secret history used in “blackface” performances throughout the United States.
“Although ‘One Horse Open Sleigh,’ for most of its singers and listeners, may have eluded its racialized past and taken its place in the seemingly unproblematic romanticization of a normal ‘white’ Christmas, attention to the circumstances of its performance history enables reflection on its problematic role in the construction of blackness and whiteness in the United States,” she wrote.
“Its origins emerged from the economic needs of a perpetually unsuccessful man, the racial politics of antebellum Boston, the city’s climate, and the intertheatrical repertoire of commercial blackface performers moving between Boston and New York,” Hamill added.
“As I mentioned in my article, the first documented performance of the song is in a blackface minstrel hall in Boston in 1857, the same year it was copyrighted,” Hamill told Fox News. “Much research has been done on the problematic history of this nineteenth-century entertainment.”
