Women’s Studies Dept. at University in Illinois Wants to Abolish ICE and Police

“We call for the abolition of the police, ICE, borders, and the judicial system”

This is one reason why so many people don’t take women or gender studies seriously. All too often, they are merely political representatives for the far left.

Campus Reform reports:

Illinois women’s studies dept: Abolish ICE and police

An Illinois Gender & Women’s Studies department endorsed a call for the abolition of both ICE and the police.

The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign’s (UIUC) Gender & Women’s Studies department shared this demand from a nine-point platform created by the National Trans Youth Council’s nine-point platform, prefacing the Facebook post with “something to believe in.”

“We call for the abolition of the police, ICE, borders, and the judicial system,” the NTYC platform reads.

Madeleine Hubbard, president of Turning Point USA at UIUC, called this demand “very concerning.”

“Without these groups, you would not have Rule of Law. A society cannot function without the Rule of Law. Complete chaos and anarchy would break out,” Hubbard told Campus Reform. “It is disturbing that a university department would call for the end of the judicial system. While there might be flaws in the judicial system, it is still the very fabric that holds society together.”

“We call for decolonization and reparations for all indigenous and black peoples,” another one of the NTYC demands shared by the university reads.

The eradication of “cisgender heterosexual patriarchy,” “global white supremacy,” and “disposability politics” are also demanded on the infographic shared by the Gender & Women’s Studies department.

I believe they should de-colonize… starting with themselves. Sell all your possessions and return the countries of your ancestors where you can live off the land, with a carbon footprint of zero in a non cisgender non heterosexual non patriarchy utopia.

So, if the police are disbanded, who do they call to report rape after they have their morning-after change of mind?

There won’t be much left of Chicago if they do away with the police. The gangs will run the place and kill each other at will.

Since these people (supposedly) believe in equality, I wonder how they would react to a “Men’s Studies” department being created.

I’ve got a better idea. Let’s abolish Women’s Studies Departments. They represent inferior scholarship, political hiring and don’t provide their students with discernible skills. This isn’t to say that studying women’s issues isn’t important, just that it doesn’t take a “department” to do it. Real scholars can study things from within their disciplines and consult with other disciplines without needing a bogus department. More particularly, if the State of Illinois can’t pay its medical bills (which it can’t) why should they spend money on something as useless as a Women’s Studies Department? Especially one populates by such shallow unserious alleged scholars.
