U. Wisconsin to Create Group to Study KKK’s History on Campus

U. Wisconsin to Create Group to Study KKK’s History on Campus

The group will include faculty and alumni.

A history professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and president of a mentoring and economic development organization have teamed up to teach the KKK’s history on campus.

From The Wisconsin State Journal:

Chancellor Rebecca Blank said the study group will investigate two UW-Madison student organizations that were “named after or otherwise affiliated with” the Klan during the 1920s.

Professor Stephen Kantrowitz and Floyd Rose, who leads 100 Black Men of Madison, will be the chairmen of the study group, which Blank said will also include students, faculty, staff and alumni.

The group is expected to advise UW-Madison administrators in December on how to acknowledge the role of the Klan in the university’s history.

“In the wake of the tragedy in Charlottesville, it is time to take a fresh look at our history to ensure that we fully understand and appropriately acknowledge the activities of members of the campus community during this time period,” Blank said in a statement.

    It is time for this Antifa Moby to be banned. For those who don’t know, a Moby is a commenter who pretends to be a conservative, but is exactly the opposite. The goal is to publish outrageous comments, seemingly from a conservative, and then report the comments to liberal social media as ordinary fare on a conservative website.

In my day, you enrolled in a second year American History course and learned about the Reconstruction and the Democratic Party’s attempt to prevent it. It spanned about 70 years, and one learned of the gradual loss of the Republican Party’s leadership and the ascendancy of the Democratic Party and the Klan and how Democratic Party racial politics drove the Party into the Midwest and the West.
Somehow I think this will be different and not involve academics at all.

UW-Mad has the KKK in their past? Say no more! That’s enough to BURN IT TO THE GROUND!

Of course, we all know the SJWs won’t entertain any such ideas. Nope, gotta reserve the iconoclasm for tearing down things that are fairly irrelevant to people’s everyday lives.

    I attended UW-Madison. I had to work to find the College Republican Club so I could join (finding it wasn’t easy, and I think I was member #20 on a campus of 40,000 students). I never saw or heard of any KKK on campus or anywhere else in Wisconsin.

This university is on the short list of approved areas to study such things by the liberal machine.

Don’t worry, comrades, we will make sure this hurts our opposition by any means necessary.

Okay, Chancellor Blank, you know who else was a Chancellor? Hitler.
