Iowa Professor Declares 'I Am Antifa,' Writes About Killing Christians

Jeff Klinzman, an adjunct professor at Kirkwood Community College, has publicly announced that he is a member of antifa.

Cedar Rapids, IA – A community college professor who has claimed to be a member of antifa is under fire after some people at Kirkwood Community College objected to his rhetoric in social media posts.

“I affirm that I am antifa,” adjunct English Professor Jeff Klinzman told KCRG.

Klinzman refused to do an on-camera interview and said he would not apologize for the social media comments that had offended some in the community.

People calling themselves antifa purport to be fighting fascism and white supremacy, but they are best known for use of black bloc tactics, wearing black masks to conceal their identities and committing violent attacks.

They believe they are literally fighting actual Nazis and justify their violence by comparing their actions with Nazi-Germany opposition groups. However, they are have a history of labeling anyone with right-of-left political views to be a Nazi.

President Donald Trump has threatened to designate antifa as a domestic terror group, FOX News reported.

When somebody posted President Donald Trump’s tweet that called antifa “Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting... people over the heads with baseball bats” on the Iowa antifa Facebook page, Klinzman posted a response.

“Yeah, I know who I’d clock with a bat,” the professor wrote.

The U.S. Secret Service said they were aware of Klinzman’s post but would not say if they were investigating the professor for the threat, KCRG reported.

Sara Riley, an attorney in Cedar Rapids, said that the professor’s comments were protected by the First Amendment.

Riley also told KCRG that it was unlikely the Secret Service would do anything about his so-called threats to President Trump.

"It's so ambiguous that there is just no way that he'd ever be considered a true threat," she explained.

Riley said that because Kirkwood Community College is a public institution there wasn’t much the school could do about Klinzman’s commentary, KCRG reported.

KCRG did a deep dive on Klinzman’s social media to see what else the good professor had posted and learned he was also not a fan of evangelical Christians.

He wrote that he wanted to "stop evangelical Christians" and then included a poem that said, "Kill them all and bury them deep in the ground".

"It's not pretty, and I'm not proud, but seeing what evangelical Christians are doing to this county and its people fills me with rage, and a desire to exact revenge,” Klinzman posted.

When KCRG asked the professor about his comments on Christians, he admitted that he “may have gone too far but he said he would only apologize to those Christians who share his ‘commitment’ to various issues facing the country.”

Kirkwood Community College declined to comment on Klinzman’s anti-Christian social media activity and said it was a personnel matter.

However, they also said that the safety of their students and staff was a top priority.

Hope Christian Fellowship Pastor Dave Doyle told KCRG that he thought the professor should be immediately removed from the classroom.

"This is not something you can just dance around the topic," Doyle said. "You have to confront it, you have to face it, you to deal with it, sometimes very bluntly and I don't see that is what Kirkwood is doing there right now."

An Iowa Open Records request by KCRG revealed that the community college has no policy to prohibit a faculty member from affiliating themselves with a violent group of criminals such as antifa.

However, the school’s policy said "that the public may judge their profession and their institution by their utterances. Hence they... should show respect for the opinions of others.”

"I wouldn't myself as a professor want to be associated with acts of violence that are attributable to a movement of individuals like antifa," Jason Blazakis, a former Director for U.S. Department of State specializing in counter-terrorism, told KCRG.

"Sara Riley, an attorney in Cedar Rapids, said that the professor’s comments were protected by the First Amendment."

The ironic beautiy of the F.A... given that his Anti-First Amendement group hates the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. It's loooong past due to designate Anti-F.A. as a domestic terrorist organization.

Just think about the Left wanting to make college free for everyone.

That will mean that taxpayer dollars will be used to basically guarantee a job for life to professors who want to teach Socialism and Anarchy, and the masses of impressionable youth will grow up to vote to turn the US into Venezuela.

And since it is "free" and guaranteed, colleges will continue to raise their rates much faster than inflation, just like how the student debt crisis has allowed them to do for the past three decades.

So why is he not arrested? Rewarded by being allowed to keep his job & spread his HATE?
That 15YO kid was arrested for threatening on line. So why not this HATER? B/C he HATES our President? Which is all the more reason to arrest him for his threats. I guess if MAD Donna can fantasize about blowing up the WH on National TV ... and other SICK Hellywood PUKES can Spew their Vomit at us to their Evil hearts content, why shouldn’t people get away w/flaunting their HATE?
Just as long as it’s a LeftTurd DemonRat. AOK!
Double standards strike yet again! What a JOKE! Get RID of these HATE FILLED A HOLES IN 2020! ALL OF THEM!
Or remain part of the DemonRat fueled problem we have here.

This is an absolute terrorist threat. He cannot claim religious beliefs. He let the cast out of the bag and claimed antifa affiliation, and made a direct threat to Christians. Please don't tell me that authorities can't see the "red flags" here for a mass shooting incident!! See something, say something!! We clearly see something, now authorities need to do something BEFORE he does.

I think what is important here is what does he teach in the classroom? As long as he sticks to the curriculum and keeps his 1A rights out of it, no problem. If he adds his 1A speech, then he should leave.

If he said the same stuff about blacks, gays or Muslims he would have been fired and there would be a clamor for him to be arrested. But since he only hates Christians, well that's ok right???

Klinzman is an active shooter in the making. How long do you wait until action is taken? After an overt act, it is too late..

The key is that he is adjunct professor at a community college, which is the lowest on the academic rung of the ladder. He is likely angry about his lack of academic success and is lashing out. The story is the same through out the country in academia and they know.

SMH, so it's free speech when a professor speaks out and claims membership in Antifa and says he would like to kill Christian but it hate speech if the rest of us speak out and call Antifa a violent hate group.

If this professor spouted his views with hatred toward Muslims and killing Muslims, he would have been fired. I thought liberals were supposed to have tolerance, but these liberal professors are teaching their students to be haters to those who disagree with their agenda.

Has he had a mental health check up? As that is the current ‘go to’ blame group...does he own a gun, what meds is he on, did he kill his pet dog, does he have crazy eyes, does he live in his Moms basement... Where’s the Natl outcry? Oh yeah forgot...Christians are the current ‘go to’ attack at any time - without repercussions group!

Iowans you must be horrified. If my children were subjected to this kind of rhetoric I would have to move. If y'all need any help just reach out. I am sure there are many people who would love to come to some kind of organized rally to remove this fool from your schools. Give it a go...

Niles Crane said it best "That man has community college written all over him"

I think he's hoping a bigger school will notice him and offer him a position.
