He knows the subject
and the new chancellor!
Something tells the Werkes that the new UW-Madison chancellor won’t be restoring the good name of Academy Award-winnning actor Fredric March any time soon. That big rock ain’t coming back, either.
The University of Wisconsin regents have picked as the next UW-Madison campus chancellor Jennifer Mnookin, currently dean of the law school at UCLA. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos don’t like it and neither do the untenured lab coats at the Werkes.
Mnookin “wholeheartedly supports critical race theory being taught on campus, is in favor of widespread vaccine mandates,” Vos charges. Worse: Mnookin “met with Hunter Biden in 2019 to entertain a proposal that he join the UCLA faculty to teach drug policy.”
From the Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden said in October 2019 that Hunter was “gonna be teaching at law school next year.”
Mnookin, the UCLA law school dean, indicated in her email that she met with Biden and his wife, Melissa Cohen Biden. “It was great to meet you and Melissa last month, and I very much appreciate your following up and sending along the attached syllabus,” she wrote in an Aug. 9, 2019, email. “I think this offers some very exciting possibilities, and I look forward to seeing what we may be able to do.”
Speaker Vos continued: “We deserve campus leaders who will encourage healthy debate, diverse thoughts and freedom of expression. Given her obvious viewpoints and political donations, Dr. Mnookin needs to prove she supports free speech on campus and not politically correct ideologies.
“After all the work of Tommy Thompson and Rebecca Blank that attempted to strengthen relationships between the university and the Legislature, this is a step backwards. I strongly hope the Board of Regents will reconsider their selection.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: This is what you get from four years of Tony Evers appointing university regents.
