Colorado Professor Wants to ‘Punch’ Political Foes ‘In the Neck’

A Colorado State University professor is advocating for violence after reading Michelle Obama’s book “Becoming,” according to recent Tweets. 

Who: Professor OiYan Poon of Colorado State University.

What: Responding to a Tweet that said “when they go low, you fucking punch them in the neck,” Poon said “I’m almost done reading Michelle Obama’s Becoming, and in reading the subtext, I don’t think she even believes the whole ‘when they go low, we go high’ b.s.,” adding later “Also, this tweet is a mood! I’m done ‘going high.’ #ImReady to punch them in the neck.”

When: The Tweets were widely reported upon Monday.

Where: Poon is a professor in Colorado.

Why It Matters: The political left has escalated its calls for violence against the right in the Trump era, and even acted on their impulses on several occasions. Two weeks ago, severely beating right-wing reporter Andy Ngo who was covering an Antifa event in Portland, Oregon.
