University professor suspended, referred to police after reportedly calling for the murder of ‘right-wing’ speakers

A professor at Michigan’s Wayne State University has been suspended after allegedly posting a disturbing remark on social media.

Steven Shaviro, described as an English professor, philosopher and writer, recently posted a statement to Facebook that appeared to endorse the murder of those who hold political viewpoints he opposes, WJBK-TV in Detroit reported Monday.

“So here is what I think about free speech on campus,” Shaviro reportedly said in the post. “Although I do not advocate violating federal and state criminal codes, I think it is far more admirable to kill a racist, homophobic, or transphobic speaker than it is to shout them down.”
