Thin Blue Line face masks are racists.
At least that’s the conclusion reached by Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania.
From Campus Reform:
After backlash from students and the school’s Office of Multicultural Life, Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania has removed face masks featuring the “thin blue line” flag from its bookstore. The college also committed to “educate” itself on how allowing such things “adversely affect our students, faculty, and staff of color.”
In an email to the college community obtained by Campus Reform, Muhlenburg College Chief Business Officer and Treasurer Kent Dyer said that the Berg Bookshop “ordered a range of different masks to make available” for students, and pro-police masks were among them. Dyer said the masks “were removed from the bookstore as soon as the situation was reported to the College.”
The face masks featured a black and white American flag with a blue line running through the middle, meant to convey support for law enforcement.
Dyer went on to claim that the Blue Lives Matter flag is linked to “white supremicist [sic]” and “alt right” groups and that it is “a symbol that seeks to discount and erase concerns related to police brutality and other aspects of the Black Lives Matter Mvement”
And fromFox News:
The “thin blue line” flags are associated with the pro-police Blue Lives Matter movement and usually displayed to convey support for law enforcement and first responders.
Muhlenberg College’s Office of Multicultural Life said it was “outraged and deeply offended” that the bookstore was selling “thin blue line” masks and “immediately called for the removal of this offensive display.”
The office said it contacted Muhlenberg College President Kathleen Harring and Dean Allison Gulati and the masks were removed from the store within 30 minutes of them being notified.
In an email obtained by Campus Reform, the school’s chief business officer and treasurer Kent Dyer said the “thin blue line” masks had been among many others that had been ordered for students.
Dyer reportedly linked the flag to white supremacist and alt-right groups, calling it “a symbol that seeks to discount and erase concerns related to police brutality and other aspects of the Black Lives Matter Movement.”
Dyer reiterated the school’s support for “Black Lives Matter and its goals of valuing the Black members of our communities and ensuring we do all we can to be more anti-racist.”
A student told Campus Reform that the school’s attempt to link the thin blue line symbol to White supremacy “is clearly trying to foster division within the student body.”
“Publicly desecrating the image of law enforcement, shaming police officers and linking those of us who support them to white supremacists and neo-Nazis is where we should draw the line,” the student said. “No academic institution should get away with such dangerous rhetoric and open discrimination.”
Are there no African-Americans in Law Enforcement?
Are there no African-Americans who support Law Enforcement?
There answer is a resounding NO to both questions.
This is about the infiltration of Marxism and Racial Division in every institution in our country.
And it is all part of a nationwide attempt to silence Conservative or Non-Conformist Voices.
