The way “race baiting” Associate Professor Tressie McMillian Cottom sees the current situation, each and every white person has been “deputized” to murder Black people to their heart’s content. She’s a typical liberal teacher at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill’s School of Information and Library Science but she’s taken it upon herself to demonize Kyle Rittenhouse and the vigilante justice he was attempting to supply before he was forced to defend his life from armed assailants rioting in the streets.
Deputized to murder looters
Liberals actually believe the nonsense that exercising Second Amendment rights to carry arms and use them in self-defense is the equivalent of granting a hunting license to go out and shoot Black people. By declaring that all White people have been “deputized” to murder looters also assumes that “Black” people will be the ones intentionally setting themselves up as targets by burning and looting businesses every night, as has been happening for three straight months now.
It’s no wonder the “children of darkness” are rioting in the streets these days. Their minds have been manipulated by liberal teachers their entire lives. Without police enforcing the laws, concerned citizens have started taking the law into their own hands and liberals are infuriated. It’s illegal to form vigilante groups just to defend private property. It’s also illegal to burn that property down, so there’s a Mexican standoff. The professor understands that completely. That’s why she used the word “deputized.” Even she understands that law and order is involved. Deputies are makeshift assistants pressed into service as required by law enforcement, to bring criminals to justice. They aren’t just handed a gun and sent out to start shooting anything that moves.
Professor Cottom got cheesed off when she heard Republican Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson on TV saying, “the way you stop the violence, the way you stop the rioting is you surge manpower and resources, citizen soldiers, National Guard, and you overwhelm the number of rioters so they can’t riot.” That would defeat the whole purpose of defunding and disarming the police. With all those “deputized” militia types running around, nobody in the neighborhood will be able to get new Jordan’s or a big screen TV. It’s all about them “reparations.”
They have deputized all white people to murder us. https://t.co/tnGRyHZn9y

A citizen soldier
“Kyle Rittenhouse,” Ms. Cottom tweeted, “who murdered 2 people, is a citizen soldier.” He didn’t murder anyone. The attackers tried to murder him and he prevented it. That’s called self-defense. He was prepared and ready for trouble, and it was there as expected. She is right about one thing though. Rittenhouse is a “citizen soldier.” You could even convincingly argue that he was officially “deputized.” The ceremony happened the instant a passing police officer tossed the young man a water bottle. The officer saw he was well armed and clearly sanctioned his presence on guard duty.
Kyle Rittenhouse and the police are on the same side. Both want law and order. Its the looters and rioters that are terrified that armed citizens might put a stop to their nightly “100 percent off sale” shopping sprees. While his legal team hasn’t mentioned a word about anyone being formally deputized into defending the neighborhood, the man’s attorneys are convinced that justice will prevail. The argument that he’s a White supremacist and prejudiced against Blacks doesn’t hold water when he has no known affiliations and didn’t shoot anyone who was Black.
Professor Cottom might think twice before tapping out another tweet like that one. She “received backlash about her comments regarding white people being deputized to kill black people.” That prompted her to respond, “Oh the racists are big mad about this one, I see.” She followed that with one that shows she knows what should come next. “Whew. This is gonna be a doozy. They’ve sent them body snatchers. Ah well, if this account disappears you’ll know that I took it as a sign from god.”
Outrage over deputized vigilantes is only the tip of the outrageousness iceberg in colleges these days. Watchdog group Campus Reform had already noted that “a number of math professors and so-called academics at ‘top’ universities in the country, such as Harvard and the University of Illinois cited the ‘Eurocentric’ roots of American mathematics.” When even mathematics gets a liberal makeover, it’s no wonder that engineers can’t build bridges which actually stand up anymore. If you don’t think that’s scary, “Brooklyn College Professor of Math Education Laurie Rubel took to Twitter this week and claimed that the mathematical equation 2+2=4 ‘reeks of white supremacist patriarchy.'”
