Professor: Trump Building Wall Because Mexicans "Can Go F**k Themselves"

On his personal blog, Assistant Professor of Humanities at Shimer College Adam Kotsko argued that the real reason behind the "extreme vetting" proposed by President Trump, as well as the reason the President has proposed building a wall between the United States and Mexico, is that "we don’t owe them anything and they can go fuck themselves."

Professor Kotsko detailed his beliefs in an article titled, "How will we know it’s over?"

"The Trump budget proposal is a nightmare — petty and vindictive, short-sighted and cruel," he begins his piece. "Inexpensive programs that literally save lives are being cut, apparently out of sheer spite."

Kotsko continues, "Why do we need to turn away refugees? The official reason is that they may pose a threat, but surely the real reason is that they are not our problem, so they can go fuck themselves."

President Trump's proposed wall between Mexico and the United States is based on similar logic, he writes, stating, "why do we need to build a wall to keep out the Mexicans? Supposedly they’re stealing our jobs, leeching off our public services, and committing crimes. But come on: the real reason is that we don’t owe them anything and they can go fuck themselves."

"Any idiot," Kotsko argues, knows that these ideas "will thwart human potential at best and kill people at worst." But Trump supporters, he adds, "will follow him to their death if he lets them hurt the people they hate along the way. The amount of pent up resentment and ugliness he has brought out into the open has already been more corrosive to our frayed social fabric than we can fully grasp."

The professor then says he hopes President Trump's supporters "don’t start publicly saying that the poor, elderly, and disabled should just die if they can’t fend for themselves."

If they do, he warns, this "is no longer a society. It’s a death camp waiting to happen."

  1. In response for your ignorant tweet Assistant Kotsko, my ancestors fought and died for the North in the war between the states in order to free the slaves and I have the documentation to prove it. You're just an ill informed product of leftist indoctrination who has spent your lifetime in leftist academia. So it's not surprising you would use your academic position as an ASSISTANT, in order to promote you twisted interpretation of history........

    For someone who has obviously never experienced a true life event such as gainful employment in the private sector, you position as an "Assistant" is nothing more than a glorified "Assistant Manager" at your local McDonalds...........At least at McDonald's the Assistant Manager has to be held accountable for their productivity.
    You're a classic liberal joke........LOL!

    1. Actually, his career is fairly young. Most professors start off as Assistant or Associate Professors before becoming Senior Professors. It's just a title.

  2. Truth is we don't owe the World anything. The working men and women of America have their hard earned money taken from them and it is proper that the money be used to benefit the American people. Immigrants should stay in their own Country and fix their own problems.

    1. This would only be true if the U.S. never meddled into the business of other nations (Asia, Middle East, Latin America). It not only did but continues to do so.

  3. Looks like my comment was deleted. Not sure why it would be. Here it is again:

    You are either being intellectually dishonest or misread Kotsko's post. He clearly does not think Mexicans should "go fuck themselves."

    "The Trump budget proposal is a nightmare — petty and vindictive, short-sighted and cruel. Inexpensive programs that literally save lives are being cut, apparently out of sheer spite. Surely, we are in the terminal phases of what I once called the society of go fuck yourself. Why do we need a travel ban? Why do we need to turn away refugees? The official reason is that they may pose a threat, but surely the real reason is that they are not our problem, so they can go fuck themselves. Similarly, why do we need to build a wall to keep out the Mexicans? Supposedly they’re stealing our jobs, leeching off our public services, and committing crimes. But come on: the real reason is that we don’t owe them anything and they can go fuck themselves."

    1. Most likely your comment got picked up in my comment filter because of the f-word.

      To your point, you might want to re-read the article. Very clearly I wrote that Dr. Kotsko was saying that it was Trump's feeling that Mexicans can do that, not that it was Dr. Kotsko's opinion. It's quite literally in the first sentence: "Adam Kotsko argued that the real reason behind the "extreme vetting" proposed by President Trump, as well as the reason THE PRESIDENT has proposed building a wall between the United States and Mexico, is that "we don’t owe them anything and they can go f*ck themselves."
