Harvard students circulate petition to ban Trump supporters from campus

A group of Harvard University students are pushing a petition which seeks to out anyone associated with President Trump by blacklisting them from “teaching, speaking, or attending the institution.”

Surely the whole point of attending a university of such standing is to use the superior intelligence, intellect and facts gained to guarantee that on the strength of the arguments alone, these Trump supporters wouldn’t dare come for fear of the abject humiliation that would follow.

Instead, these snowflakes want to shut down debate for fear they might have to listen to someone with different opinions. These poor trust fund babies. Who could forget this Harvard graduate who threatened to stab anyone who said All Lives Matter?

Didn’t Joe Biden call for Americans to “unite”? Maybe when Harvard alumni and former FLOTUS Michelle Obama said 75 million Trump supporters backed “lies, hate, chaos and division” she wasn’t helping heal that rift.

As we said this morning, education is increasingly looking like it should be free as it is seemingly worth little. Why learn when indoctrination is so much simpler?

At the very least, The Harvard Crimson, the student-run paper, blasted the policy as “paternalistic, ineffective, and contrary to the College’s stated goals of free speech.

Democrat mayor issues senseless apology

Mayor Paul Bodeur has tweeted out an apology to residents in Melrose, Massachusetts for a police officer who wrote “All Lives Matter” on a traffic sign.

Melrose Police Chief Michael L. Lyle, said he will be investigating the action. His public statement is so pathetic. Do residents want time wasted on rubbish like this? Demanding signs get approved by the boss?

It is amazing that Democrat mayors are actually wasting time over something so trivial and making grandiose apologies to residents who probably didn’t pay it any mind, much less took any offence, while launching needless investigations into hate speech to pillory an officer who only sought “inclusion”. Which begs the question why traffic signs are being used for propaganda instead of road safety?

Welcome to 2020 and the Democratic Party platform – segregation. Good to see it is staying true to its roots that are wedded in identity politics. Perhaps the mayor should suggest the police chief put up “ACAB – All Cops Are Bad” to be in step with the cancel culture and appease the mob to promote progressivism.

It is really getting too stupid. Perhaps the sign should read, “Mayor, drink cement and harden up!” We’re sure Melrose residents would see much more value in that.

8-yo girl shot dead and BLM totally silent

You have to wonder about the reprehensible Marxist dogma of the BLM organization when only some black lives matter. Apparently, black kids don’t matter. Hypocrites.

Americans should be more afraid of Doctors than the Police

Americans should be far more petrified of their surgeons than of the police. Of the 50,000,000 engagements by police each year in America, only 0.002% result in deaths at the hands of cops. Americans are 254x more likely to die from medical errors than from rogue law enforcement officers.

Civilian assaults of police officers total c.48,000 per annum. Note c.9,700 or those involve deadly weapons (guns, knives, swords, axe, motor vehicles, shovels, bats, pipes). 13,700 officers that receive injuries require medical treatment.

Note that of the 990 people killed by police per annum, 250 are black, a majority of them armed. Therefore blacks have a 0.00064% chance of death at the hands of the police. In other words, 99.9994% chance of not being killed by law enforcement. So the narrative that they are all trigger happy lunatics is patently false.

2,600 blacks are killed by other blacks according to FBI data. That is a 0.0064% chance. Or 99.994% chance of dying at the hands of another black perpetrator. Blacks are 55x more likely to be murdered by another black than a white perpetrator. These are just facts.

A great movie worth streaming is ‘Uncle Tom‘ which beats down the narrative portrayed in the media of the black minority.

Harvard graduate who threatened to stab people missed lecture on personal responsibility

Harvard graduate Claira Janover has lost her job at Deloitte after she went on a TikTok rant saying she’d stab people who said “all lives matter” and watch them bleed out.

Who knew?

She made a follow up video complaining that horrible Trump supporters cost her that job.

Welcome to 2020 where personal responsibility doesn’t exist. Saying stupid things (even if in jest) with the hope of boosting social media following in the attempts to appeal to being woke to win approval is somehow acceptable.

Harvard could never have given her the lesson she has given herself. Self-entitlement 101 could be a course they need to build into the ethics curriculum.

Nursing school dean fired for saying “Everyone’s life matters”

Welcome to 2020.

University of Massachusetts-Lowell Dean of Nursing Leslie Neal-Boylan has been fired for sending this email:

“Dear SSON Community,

I am writing to express my concern and condemnation of the recent (and past) acts of violence against people of color. Recent events recall a tragic history of racism and bias that continue to thrive in this country. I despair for our future as a nation if we do not stand up against violence against anyone. BLACK LIVES MATTER, but also, EVERYONE’S LIFE MATTERS. No one should have to live in fear that they will be targeted for how they look or what they believe.”

After a student going by the Twitter handle, @psychohighrep complained,

“An upsetting statement made by the Dean of Nursing at UMass Lowell, including the statement ‘all lives matter’ was uncalled for and shows the narrow-minded people in lead positions. A sad day to be a nursing student at UML. Dean Leslie Neal-Boylan your words will not be forgotten.

The university responded with:

Haley – Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The university hears you and we believe black lives matter. See the letter the chancellor sent out Monday.

Then a university spokesperson wrote,

The university ended the employment of Dr. Neal-Boylan on June 19 after 10 months in her role as dean of the Solomont School of Nursing. As with all such decisions, it was made in the best interest of the university and its students.

Neal-Boylan wrote to university Provost Julie Nash,

It is important to point out that no one ever gave me an opportunity to share my views of how the college and school were interacting nor explain myself regarding the BLM email. My meeting with you, [Dean] Shortie [McKinney], and Lauren Turner was clearly not intended to give me an opportunity to defend my actions. I was condemned without trial.

So much for the “visionary leader” that Neal-Boylan was portrayed as when she took on the role.

This is the sinister world we find ourselves in. Speech is compelled.  In another time this would be ruled constructive dismissal. Now it is par for the course. It is a warning – our free speech is under threat, even when as innocuous as Dr Neal-Boylan’s comments.

Yet a Cambridge professor keeps her job for saying #WhiteLivesDontMatter

Clearly #AllLivesDontMatter. Tertiary educations are truly hijacked by the left.

DC Mayor gets schooled by the mob

DFP

Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser set a wonderful example last week in trying to end racism. She renamed the area out the front of the White House, ‘Black Lives Matter Plaza‘ and scrawled it in huge yellow letters on the bitumen as a two-fingered salute to President Trump.

Unfortunately, despite her attempts to show solidarity,  Black Lives Matter DC cracked her over the head for “appeasing white liberals”.  So the mob decided to express their own artistic expression by copying her virtue signalling with ‘Defund the Police’ while dancing to cheerful singing.

How ironic that these protestors were protected by the very police they wish to have abolished? We wonder how the officers must have felt providing a safe environment to the very people who wish to strip them of their livelihoods right from under their noses?

One imagines if a group painted ‘All Lives Matter’ on the pavement, they would be met with hostility and violence.

We wonder how the demands of the left will play out ahead of the election?

Does anyone in the Democratic Party think that Americans will be prepared to give up their rights under the 2nd Amendment when they are advocating for defunding and disbanding the police forces around the country? Perhaps they might look at the surge in gun sales as a good guide as to the public perception of these moves. Note that gun sales hit an all-time record during coronavirus with 3.7mn checks in March, 3x the level of March 2019. One imagines the “defund the police” movement will send it higher again.

Will Americans gladly accept the premise made by Democrat politicians like Lisa Bender in Minneapolis who tells them that having a police force is a privilege and removing it is necessary to “dismantle white supremacy“? She might be able to argue in time that her policy drove home prices down to more significantly more ‘affordable’ levels. And the very program Bender lauds the success of hasn’t stemmed violence. Despite the number of shootings among people targeted by her intervention program staying level between 2018 and 2019, police stats showed the overall number of people wounded or killed by gunfire in the city increased from 244 to 269. Homicide was up 55% in the period.

Should Americans believe Minnesota House Rep. Ilhan Omar support to defund the police when she said, “we must completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Departent…and allow for something beautiful to rise” Murder? Rape? Robbery? Car theft? You know, the crime rates which are already twice the national average and 4x Minnesota. Pfft. Feelings matter more than facts.

Will pictures of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden kneeling send messages to the electorate of someone committed to keeping law and order?

Will we see a rebirth of vigilante groups like the Guardian Angels who dealt with crime in NYC during the 1980s?

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany spoke yesterday about the heroic deeds of the police around the country just last year. It is worth watching their selfless service from the 26 min 40-sec mark.

Why can’t the Democrats see that these open displays of weakness are handing Trump the election on a platter? Can’t they see just how terrible they look as an alternative? If he is bad as the media claims, they’d be safer doing nothing.

As Napoleon once said, “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.
