Remember way back in February of 2020 when we told you about a criminology professor who claimed that the animated children’s show “Paw Patrol” was problematic because it ignores the structural barriers in our society and encourages capitalism? A few months later, cancel culture had it out for “Paw Patrol,” as the New York Times reported that the show faced a backlash against the portrayal of “good cops” (this was around the same time that the show “Cops” was canceled by Paramount and Hollywood was rethinking cops shows and even superheroes, who are essentially just cops in capes).

This comes to us courtesy of The Daily Wire. Chrissy Clark writes that Cypress College student Braden Ellis gave a presentation about “cancel culture” and why it is “so destructive and tearing our country apart.” In it, he mentioned the campaign to cancel “Paw Patrol,” which triggered his communications professor.

That arrogant bitch needs to meet the FEMALE detective who made sure my daughter's abuser got life in prison.
She should also meet my cop uncle. Oh wait, he was killed by a drug dealer.

The best response would be:
Student: "I think teachers are heroes"
Student: "But not all of them, some are pedos"
That would have shut her down, or made her rage quit I think.

Is the behavior displayed by this professor representative of the quality of education provided by your school?

Professors should be playing devil's advocate to stoke discussion and allow someone to explore their ideas, not block the student from getting a word in edgewise. She's an activist, not a professor.

I find this video hard to watch. A teacher is not there to condescend to and react with visible disgust at the opinions of their students. That guy must've felt so uncomfortable and yet he handled it with such maturity.

Also, people need to stop treating "13th" as a historical documentary. It's entertaining, but factually incorrect. Police departments don't exist because of slave catchers. It's absurd.

Lol, she wouldn't even let him talk long enough to get his point of view across

I applaud the student for the way he handled the situation and defended his ideas. Pretty cool stuff from him.

She's reeling here. A completely emotional response fed by the dumpster-fire of the media and enhanced by the echo-chamber of her peers. Hope he can get his money back for that course.

What a toxic woman

I googled "professors who have committed murder" and there were 10 prominent ones. So by her logic we should get rid of professors

It’s a myth that modern policing evolved from capturing slaves in Colonial America.
It’s simply not true and you should call people out when they say it.
Our modern policing evolved from “night-watchmen” in England long before slaves were ever brought to the US.

Apologies, not really a myth. A lie.
— Andrew Nutting (@NuttingAndrew) April 29, 2021
But 1619 Project creator Nikole Hannah-Jones just assured CBS News last week that modern policing had a direct lineage to slave patrols, which is what makes police reform so difficult. The 1619 Project!
She is not teaching.
— Gambare (@d3navy) April 29, 2021
I mean she’s teaching a lot depending on perspective. She’s teaching me what I should avoid when debating. She’s teaching me that cypress college hires bullies as professors and that students are shouted down for holding balanced views on police
— H.Johnson (@HJohnso46619178) April 29, 2021
The way she shakes her head in a negative fashion while she speaks, along with her forceful tone, not to mention cutting everyone off, leads me to think she doesn't really believe, or at least can't substantiate, what she is saying. Sad that this is what passes for 'education.'

He was interrupted repeatedly after being asked to defend his position. He never got more than 10 seconds to begin a sentence. She is the antithesis of an academic and should be nowhere near a teaching job. She just harangues.

No instructor at any level should behave in such a way to demean & demoralize a student. That was evident loathing & disdain for a student based on his personal opinion. Prejudice towards a student is unacceptable.

And that other kid smirking as he chimes in. He knows he’s getting an A. <and never getting laid ever>
