Eleven professors of education from various universities around the country recently signed a letter, published in the latest issue of the International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, declaring right wing speech as “violent.”
“We commit to standing against violence directed at these targeted scholars and speaking out against the attempts to censor critical work that addresses systemic inequities and power imbalances in education and society,” the letter said. There are no examples of physical violence against professors provided in the letter, but the letter itself suggests that somehow rightwing speech is equivalent to violence.
“[A]s senior scholars, we are pledging to actively support and protect critical scholars in colleges and universities across the US. Further, we challenge those rightwing organizations—instead of focusing on mostly untenured junior scholars, the most vulnerable among us—to focus your fervor on us,” the professors said.
The professors refer specifically to organizations like Campus Reform and The College Fix, who report on extreme leftism on college campuses.
“The attack on critical scholars within US universities has greatly accelerated with the election, statements, and actions of Donald Trump,” the professors wrote. “[T]those of us who are senior scholars doing critical work and authoring articles in this special issue are strongly committed to providing our support to critical scholars under attack by Trump-inspired rightwing individuals and groups.”
The lead author of the letter is professor James Scheurich, a professor in the Urban Education Studies doctoral program at Indiana University – Purdue University of Indianapolis, commonly known as IUPUI. Professors at the University of Texas at Austin, New York University, and Ohio State University also signed the letter.
According to Scheurich’s website he is dedicated to supporting the creation of schools that deliver high-quality student groups, especially those groups that have historically not been well served by public schooling.
Groups that have been underserved, according to Scheurich’s page, include African American students, Latino students, students from low income families, student from families that do not speak English at home, students from other cultures, students with disabilities, girls in math and science, lesbian/gay/bi/transgender students, or any other group not receiving the benefits of a high quality education.
BIG: Saint Louis Police Detective REFUSED TO SIGN Soros Funded Prosecutor’s Probable Cause Document Against McCloskeys
This could doom the bunk charges.
New developments in the criminal case against Mark and Patricia McCloskey by Soros-funded Saint Louis Prosecutor Kim Gardner reveals that a lead police detective refused to sign a probable cause statement drafted by Gardner’s office. The probable cause statement appears filled with falsehoods and lies, and claims that the trespassing rioters that broke into the private community of the McCloskeys were “peaceful.”
The ‘signature’ element of the probable cause statements against both McCloskeys has been conspicuously left blank, with Curtis Burgdorf leaving off his signature.
KDSK St. Louis reported Tuesday that Gardner’s Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley emailed these documents to Sergeant Curtis Burgdorf the day before a gun confiscation search warrant was served on the McCloskeys, telling the cop that he needed to sign them “now.” Gardner’s office merely went ahead with the gun confiscation, later criminally charging the couple, after falsely trying to put words in the mouth of the St. Louis Police Department.
KDSK is also reporting that Burgdorf had documented numerous threats directed towards the McCloskeys by the Black Lives Matter trespassing rioters, including waving loaded pistol magazines at the couple and warning that they would be “coming back” to the residence.
Gardner’s subordinate Hinckley would go on to leave Sergeant Burgdorf an angry voicemail for refusing to sign off on fraudulent documents alleging crimes against the McCloskeys.
“Curtis, you need to call me back. I wrote a long email to you trying to ask a bunch of questions about whatever it is you said some was (expletive). Now we need to straighten this out because I’m about done with this crap. Call me back.”
Merely weeks after charges were filed, the case against the McCloskeys is already filled with massive improprieties and downright corruption, including a revelation that a prosecutor with Gardner’s office had ordered forensics experts to reassemble Patricia McCloskey’s pistol from its original state as a non-functional courtroom prop to a functional firearm.
It’s well past time for these bunk charges to be summarily dismissed as political prosecution, and for Gardner to be investigated for her resolute willingness to prosecute her political enemies and go easy on left-wing criminals.
