Kern Community College Trustee Apologizes for ‘Provocative Comments’ Towards Faculty Who Oppose DEI Initiatives

“Got them in my livestock operation and that’s why we put a rope on some of them and take them to the slaughterhouse.”

This just goes to show how committed the left is to this ideology.

California college trustee apologizes after ‘threatening’ remarks about faculty who oppose equity initiatives

A California college trustee board member apologized after being confronted over his provocative comments directed towards faculty who were against the school district’s diversity, equity and inclusion measures.

At the Kern Community College District’s Board of Trustees meeting on December 13, several speakers attacked professors who started a free speech group at the Bakersfield College campus called the Renegade Institute for Liberty.

Community members, faculty and students accused the group of spreading “hate speech” on campus, threatening violence against Black students and attacking racial affinity groups.

Empathizing with the speakers’ grievances, vice president of the board John Corkins said he believed this group was an “abusive” and “disrespectful” minority and needed to be “culled,” and taken “to the slaughterhouse.”

“They’re in that 5 percent that we have to continue to cull. Got them in my livestock operation and that’s why we put a rope on some of them and take them to the slaughterhouse. That’s a fact of life with human nature and so forth, I don’t know how to say it any clearer,” he said.

Some board members laughed or smiled at the trustee’s comments in the video.

Corkins apologized after being confronted by the College Fix but defended the sentiment behind his comments.

“I apologize to anyone who felt threatened or was offended. My intent was to emphasize that the individuals who spoke during the public comment portion of the meeting have my full support,” he said in a statement.
