Just as I thought, another fake story to cause fake outrage. Why are people so damn gullible.

You are conflating gullibility with confirmation bias.

Come to think of it, they are somewhat similar.

But, do you have anything to support that claim or are you just expressing a hunch? It's okay, I get hunches all the time.


The claim in the OP is essentially that this professor said that the Vegas Shooting was trumps fault and that after this the class erupted.

The video footage of the class and professor in question does not back up this claim.

As such any logical person can only conclude in the absence of any further evidence that the aforementioned claim is BS.

Their confirmation bias makes them gullible. In this case they go hand in hand.

If what you say here is correct, then I guess the UNLV spokesman, who's job it is to handle PR for the university, didn't need to make this statement now did it, unless it was exactly as the article and OP claims and not as you wish it didn't.

“While we respect academic freedom in the classroom and the right to free speech, we believe the comments were insensitive, especially given the series of events this week and the healing process that has begun in the community,” UNLV spokesman Tony Allen said.


Sounds like a fail on your part.

Yup according to the article you have posted in your OP which claims that she blamed Trump for the shootings based on a video (it even says video in its title) and that the class erupted after.

I checked the UVLN twitter feed, nothing about this statement, nor is it on their press release page of their website.

This smells like fake news.

The anonymous student (of course) is the one who reported it and that report seems to be at odds with the video of the incident. I'm sure that spokesperson was going off of the report by that conveniently anonymous student.

It's pointless to tell them it's fake news, they've already bought into it and they won't admit they were fooled.

There is only one person who knows what is fake news.

Jesus Christ, I just visited the source in the OP and the main page doesn't have anything that isn't related to the shooting, literally nothing. Using a tragedy for clicks? Pretty low in my opinion and shows the source has no integrity at all.

Perhaps because it's a local Las Vegas based news organization, and this week it has been the biggest news story there? Even here at ATS.

Please, stop trolling.

Four days after the Oct. 1 mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, a UNLV professor of history said she had predicted "people would die" once Donald Trump was elected president.



She was absolutely right. What she was saying was that President Trump wasn't the kind of person who could stop the inevitable. Every president has a mass shooting under his watch, and there was nothing that Trump could do to stop this type of event that would happen under his watch.

Its pretty obvious who decided to skip school during the teaching of inferences.

The teacher is another Leftist idiot.

But the black-haired chick in the front row looks very hot.

She said, I said people will die because of Trump and you seen it, right...

So either she is talking about Trump causing the deaths of people as in LV, or she is suggesting a President in general will have people die under their watch, so which is it? If it is the second I need to say NO SH@T and wonder why my educational costs for me kids is so wasted.

She said from the day he got elected people will die....people will die. She so smart...lol

She also say that the ONLY thing Trump has done is to incite violence. Doesn't sound like she was talking about Presidents in general, in fact Obama has a lot of blood on his hands, both military and civic.

Why do some people even go to school? They should just form cultish communes to fill echo chambers with proud words.

Lucky bastards. It pisses me off to no end. These people get to be in school and do awesome stuff. Later in life they will do even more awesome stuff. Yet, they cant just go to class and learn /teach.

What a waste. So much left to learn remains untouched. Right to the wayside so THIS can be done to us.

All for spiteful discord and blind conviction.
