(Natural News) The ‘woke’ Leftist mobs being indoctrinated by the nation’s public school system and centers of ‘higher education’ to hate America and all of its institutions claimed another victim last week.
The chief of campus police at West Virginia University was forced to apologize to angry intolerant students after they saw a “thin blue line” version of the American flag, which honors police officers, hanging inside his home during a Zoom video call.
According to Campus Reform, Chief W.P. Chedester actually said he was sorry for the “hurt” that his flag may have caused the little melting flakes of Leftist snow.
In a statement he said:
Earlier today I participated in a virtual Campus Conversation with our vice president of diversity, Equity and inclusion. Our goal was to focus on how we can work together to foster a safe, diverse and inclusive culture at WVU.
I participated from my office, and on the wall behind me was an American flag with a blue stripe that I had been given as a gift. For me personally, it has always represented a way to honor the commitment I made as a first responder to protect our community. I understand now that it represents something else to many others; something that I now know was traumatic to some of our community tuning in for our Conversation. I sincerely did not have any intent to suggest that police lives matter more than Black lives nor was I intentionally trying to cause any harm or offense.
I apologize for how this has damaged the trust I have worked to build with the community. I am committed to rebuilding that trust beginning today. I am taking the flag down from my office wall.
He went on to say that the George Floyd incident “has made it clear that we have much work to do in our country and in our own communities” — though that incident had nothing at all to do with the West Virginia University Campus Police.
It seems rather unbelievable that a police chief would be so hard-up to keep his job that he would bend over for the outrage mob instead of telling the university to pound sand and the little melting flakes of snow to grow up.
What’s more, as in every single similar instance where the Left-wing mob gets ‘insulted,’ it’s always the ‘offender’ who has to apologize, not the offended.
And you’ll notice, too, that they all use the same inaccurate language: Words like “inclusive,” “diverse,” “tolerant.”
How ‘inclusive’ is it to exclude someone else’s point of view simply because you choose to be offended (and being offended is a choice)?
Where is the “diversity” of thought in savaging a police officer who obviously likes and respects his profession? Would the same woke ‘diversity’ champions like it if the police chief trashed college students and professors because they ‘offend’ him? (Related: Left-wing university president says suppressing diversity of speech promotes “intellectual diversity.”)
And it’s anything but tolerant to insist that Chedester apologize and/or be reprimanded for a point of view — no matter what that point of view happens to be.
Finally, let’s not forget he’s a police officer, not a KKK member or a terrorist.
But in the end, Chedester’s disgusting mea culpa wasn’t enough. The position of Chief of Police must now be cleansed and made whole again, and for that to happen, well, Chedester’s gotta go.
“The only way forward is with his resignation. Why is it so difficult to comprehend?” one user wrote in response to the chief’s apology.

But that’s not even the worst of it. According to Campus Reform, assistant professor in WVU’s Department of English Rose Casey actually claimed that the thin blue line flag is “associated with white supremacy.”
Americans who willingly succumb to this kind of blatant cultural bigotry and intolerance are no longer free. Just saying.
