Law Professor Puts Student On Blast For MAGA Hat, Describes It As, ‘Undeniable Symbol Of White Supremacy’

Political correctness needs to die before it destroys our country.

Published

Jeffrey Omari, a visiting assistant professor at Gonzaga University was none too happy about seeing a student in one of his classes rocking a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat, stating it made his blood boil.

Just how angry was this radical left-wing educator? Mad enough to craft a curt op-ed for the ABA journal expressing how the hat was a symbol of white supremacy.

Feel free to roll your eyes now.

In his op-ed for the ABA Journal — Seeing Red: A professor coexists with ‘MAGA’ in the classroom — Omari wrote that initially he was “unsure whether the student was directing a hateful message toward me or if he merely lacked decorum and was oblivious to how his hat might be interpreted by his black law professor.”

Omari determined that the student’s MAGA hat — the iconic symbol of President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign — was a hateful message toward him.

“As the student sat there directly in front of me, his shiny red MAGA hat was like a siren spewing derogatory racial obscenities at me for the duration of the one hour and fifteen-minute class,” he wrote.

As we’ve repeatedly seen, MAGA hats are more or less lightning rods to scads of leftists. As TheBlaze has reported, anti-Trump folks have flipped out at MAGA-hat wearers, took off or knocked the caps from their heads, or actually stole them as video recorded the incidents. On the Fourth of July, multiple females allegedly pushed and punched a 6’1″, 230-pound former college linebacker in a restaurant for wearing one.

As you would expect, the student’s MAGA hat didn’t spark any incidents in the law school class. But Omari did note that “in an effort to assuage the perceived tension, I jokingly told the student, ‘I like your hat,’ when he raised his hand to participate in class discussion. Without missing a beat, the student mockingly grinned from ear to ear and said, ‘Thank you.'”

He also said that “an informal survey of my colleagues revealed that no other law faculty had experienced any students wearing such propaganda in their classes, which furthered my contention that this student was indeed trying to intimidate and/or racially antagonize me.”

Omari added that he “was one of an exceedingly small number of students, faculty and staff of color in the law school. From my (progressive) perspective as a black man living in the increasingly polarized political climate that is America, MAGA is an undeniable symbol of white supremacy and hatred toward certain nonwhite groups.”

This is just getting completely ridiculous. Folks, it’s just a hat that expresses a sentiment that should not in the slightest bit be construed as racist. Making this country great again, after it has fallen from its heights due to the failed liberal policies of the Obama administration should be a message that brings people together, not drives them apart.

Also, it’s clear that the whole “racism” bit tied to this comes from the fact that Trump puts America first rather than a foreign nation and its people. That’s not racism. That’s loyalty to one’s own country. No one has a problem with folks coming here through the proper channels. It’s those who break our laws and suck up our resources that are a problem.

There are plenty of people of all races, creeds, and colors who contribute to that problem.

It’s time for political correctness to die before it ends up putting the final nail in the coffin of the great American experiment we’ve all enjoyed our entire lives.

NY Times Forced To Make Massive Correction On Kavanaugh Story Over Factual Omission

Shame, shame.

Published

on

Folks on the left tend to view the New York Times as a bastion of journalistic integrity, but the fact is, this couldn’t be further from the truth, especially over the last several years that Trump has been in office. The NY Times is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party, helping to pump up the progressive agenda and force feed it into the mushy brains of a readership who refuse to think for themselves and do due diligence to see both sides of the important issues facing our country. The latest example of this is the major correction the publication was forced to make to a story about the latest Brett Kavanaugh accusations. The reason for the correction is that the story withheld exculpatory information. via TheBlaze: The supposed bombshell story reported new allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. According to the story, Kavanaugh once pulled down his pants at a Yale party and “friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.” However, the story omitted a key fact relevant to the story’s credibility: The alleged victim does not remember the incident. “An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party,” the Times said in a correction. “The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.” https://twitter.com/MZHemingway/status/1173432452435644416 The correction was only made after Mollie Hemingway, writer for The Federalist, highlighted the omission of this key fact, having obtained an early copy of the…

Teacher Under Investigation After Telling Students VP Pence Should Be ‘Shot In The Head’

So much for tolerance.

Published

on

One of the things we constantly hear from the radical left is about how we all need to be tolerant of folks who are different from us, which sounds like a lovely little platitude. However, it’s not one the left actually takes and applies to real life, especially for folks who are on the right side of the political spectrum. A good case in point is the tale of a North Carolina high school teacher who is now under investigation after telling students that Vice President Mike Pence “should be shot in the head.” Doesn’t that just give you the warm and fuzzies and make you yearn for unity and harmony? via TheBlaze: The teacher — who works at Cuthbertson High School in Waxhaw — allegedly made the comment the same week Pence was in the area to campaign for Republican Dan Bishop, WJZY-TV reported. Bishop, a state senator, won a special election Tuesday for North Carolina’s congressional seat. The Union County Sheriff’s Office told WJZY it passed the information along to the Secret Service to investigate. The station referred to the teacher in question as a female but said it wasn’t naming the teacher. Parents are rightfully furious over this teacher’s statements to the students, even those who aren’t fans of Pence like Firas Obeid, who is the father of two students attending the school. “Affiliation to a specific party does not entitle us to make statement like that to anyone,” Obeid said. So what did the school district say about the incident? They released the following statement: “Union County Public Schools is aware of the allegation of inappropriate comments made by a Cuthbertson High School teacher. District administrators are taking this allegation seriously and an investigation is being conducted. This is a personnel matter and information related to…
