Student Body President at UConn Faces White Supremacy Accusations for Opposing Defunding Police

“is the vice president of the Connecticut Young Democrats and an Hispanic immigrant”

The student in question is Hispanic and a Democrat, but that doesn’t matter. Anyone who deviates from the left’s position becomes a target.

Campus Reform reports:

UConn student body president accused of white supremacy after opposing effort to defund the police

Mike Hernandez, president of the University of Connecticut’s student government, is being accused of supporting white supremacy due to his recent veto of a senate resolution that called on the university to defund its police department.

In addition to serving as president of UConn’s Undergraduate Student Government, Hernandez is the vice president of the Connecticut Young Democrats and an Hispanic immigrant.

The resolution, titled “A Statement Denouncing the Capitol Riots and white Supremacy,” sought to reaffirm the body’s commitment to “empowering and supporting all students of color,” established that the undergraduate student government “supports efforts to impeach and convict Donald Trump,” and called on the university to defund its police department. It also contained criticisms of white supremacy and the events that occurred on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol.

According to Hernandez, he vetoed the resolution because he believes the Undergraduate Student Government “must remain a nonpartisan organization” and that calls to defund the police are “inextricably tied to partisan politics.”

He also stated that it is not “appropriate for this organization to take any stance on the pending trial of former President Trump” as the trial was also “tied closely to partisan politics” and called the assertion that there was an “abject failure and derelict of duty by the US Capitol Police” in the resolution “an insult to the sacrifice and bravery of the many officers who held the line on that fateful day.”

I was on a long drive this morning, and had the radio off. I started thinking: maybe white males should start doing, and acting like, what we are accused accused of acting like and doing.

If nothing else, it would snap a few people back into reality.

    As the saying goes, “Do you really want white people to start thinking of themselves as a monolithic ideological and political bloc?”

      I will freely state that my experience with segregation is very slight. I grew up in Los Angeles, where nothing was explicitly marked “whites only”. There was de facto segregation, and ads for rentals labeled “restricted clientele”. Job applications asked for race, religion, and any fraternal organizartion affiliations.

      Yet, I also seem to recall those very times when, despite all of this, we were Americans. We were far more unified as a nation than we are now. Hyphenation-Americans were virtually unknown. In short, using a variation on what Rodney King asked, we did, generally, “get along”.

      It was only when all of this forcing of integration came along that so much of the trouble started. Forced busing of school kids, “fair housing” edicts and other losses of freedom of contract, and other things have led to where we are.
