Joshua Clover

University of California - Davis

Joshua Clover is a Professor of English at the University of California, Davis. According to his university biography, Clover specializes in “critical theory, Marxism, political theory, political economy, poetry, and poetics.”

Clover was widely condemned after past tweets and statements in a 2015 article with San Francisco Weekly advocating for the murder of police officers were uncovered. His statements include: 

  • “People think that cops need to be reformed. They need to be killed. “What’s wrong with society today?”
  • “I am thankful that every living cop will one day be dead, some by their own hand, some by others, too many of old age #letsnotmakemore”
  • “I mean, it’s easier to shoot cops when their backs are turned, no?”

Clover’s comments were not uncovered, nor did they go viral, until 4 years later in 2019.

Professor Watchlist is a project of Turning Point USA, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
