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.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
