Historically Black College Fires Police Officers for Sharing Memes

Published

on

The College Fix reports that a private university recently fired nine campus police officers for allegedly sharing “offensive” memes in private group messages.

The school and the campus police department have refused to comment further on this matter.

The school in question, Hampton University located in Hampton, Virginia, fired the officers late in June. The officers remain unnamed.

A letter of termination, which Deputy Chief Ronald Davis signed, was shared by a local news station WAVY, revealed that the officers were engaged in “the third annual ‘Meme Wars’”. This event was described as “a jovial release of photographs and captions designed to levy insults at others in the group as well as persons outside the group.”

In the letter, Davis declared that the memes were “egregious and extremely inappropriate to be shared in the workplace.” However, in its report of the incident, WAVY stated that a number of the officers “disputed that the messages were on social media, and said they were shared only through direct texts or group texts.”

According to the termination letter, the memes were shared in a “group”, though it was unclear if the group was public or private. The school eventually responded to The Fix’s inquiry in an email stating that “After a full investigation, it was determined that the officers shared misogynistic, racist and other offensive remarks via social media. The university has a zero tolerance for such behavior.”

The statement still did not address if the group was public or private.

All students, faculty, and staff must abide by Hampton University’s Code of Conduct. It highlights that using “vile, obscene or abusive language or exhibit lewd behavior, is in direct violation of the Hampton University Code, on or off campus.”

Section eight of the university’s Code of Conduct states: “Each member of the Hampton Family is expected to use technology in a responsible and respectful manner. Individuals should utilize their best judgment before posting content and should specifically refrain from cyber bullying.”

Hampton was founded in 1868 and is one of the top black universities in the nation.

This demonstrates that no group is safe from political correctness culture. Including supposedly “protected” groups such as African Americans.

Universities, both public and private, are seeing free expression stifled both institutionally and culturally.

This is another sign of an increasingly sensitive culture that can no longer take jokes nor talk about things that make people uncomfortable.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
