The Left has a taste of blood and wants more!
It will have to get stupid-er before it gets better … Gordon Klein, an accounting professor … at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) … is now suspended and under police protection in his home. The reason? Klein refused to exempt black students from his final exam … The school has launched a formal discrimination investigation, Jonathan Turley reports.
Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do when they come for you?
Vive the cancel culture — Cops TV series has been canceled after 31 years in wake of protests. Social justice warriors say A&E’s Live PD should be next. On HBO Max, Gone With the Wind is gone with the wind. GoFundMe is censoring a fundraiser by conservative political commentator Candace Owens in support of an Alabama cafe whose co-owner criticized the George Floyd protests. A black football player (and he would know) refuses to accept Drew Brees’ apology, saying the American flag Brees once defended oppresses his people.
School’s out for real leadership
Gloria Reyes’ unprincipled flip flop on school resource officers is lighting up the NextDoor social network here on Madison’s SW side and, no doubt, Zoom encounters throughout the city. Representing the mindset that may well prove Madison’s majority is “Bianca,” who posts: “The police are domestic terrorists. The police are armed and militarized.”
That elicited this blowback from Cindra: “You obviously have NEVER worked in a high school have you? And my daughter just became a police officer to make a difference in this world & she’s hardly a “terrorist”, thank-you very much!! As of mid-morning 06-10-2020 comments were running 22 to 8 IN FAVOR of keeping cops in the public high schools. No doubt exercising their white privilege. (SNARK ALERT!)
What is more appalling is that Reyes would create a committee of “students, parents, teachers and others to determine what ‘safety and security could look like without SROs in schools.’” Gloria, are you that much a glutton for punishment? The school board studied that issue for three years under the dithering chairmanship of Dean Loumos. Freedom Inc. and its Progressive Dane allies strafed his and your meetings with F-bombs and physical intimidation. They drove the school board behind locked doors.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: A parable out of the murderous French Revolution: A little fellow was seen running after the mob, first left, then right, as it devoured itself in escalating rounds of ideological cleansing and retribution. Asked why, the little fellow answered, “I must follow them, for I am their leader.”
That, dear reader, is Gloria Reyes.
PS: I’ve got the video from Mayor Satya’s eyes-only pep talk to the police, which has been locked down since. It’s here!
