Riot-supporting prof wants on police board

Empower Wisconsin | Sept 9, 2020 

MADISON — Nothing says law and order oversight like a radical University of Wisconsin-Madison professor who has endorsed and financially supported rioters. 

Dr. Sami Schalk, hate-spewing associate prof at UW’s Department of Gender & Women’s Studies, last week tweeted that she’d like to be a member of Madison’s newly formed Police Civilian Oversight Board. 

The panel — more pandering by the left to the radical left — was created earlier this month along with the Office of the Independent Police Monitor. Its unstated but clear goal is to make life miserable for one of the more progressive police departments in the country. 

Sami, like her cop-hating pals, wants to get to work on defunding the police.

“I think…maybe I want to do this? Be on the civilian oversight board for police here? I’m trying to get more details to make sure it’s not a conflict with my other positions, & that such a position would still allow my work toward defunding & abolition,” the taxpayer-funded leftist nut job tweeted last week. 

Conservative muckraker David Blaska first noted Schalk’s interest in public disservice in a recent blog post. The classy professor labeled Blaska a “stupid ass troll.” 

She quickly added that she is not nominating herself, she is merely considering it. 

City Legislative Analyst Karen Kapusta-Pofahl, as of Tuesday, said she did not have an application bearing Schalk’s name. But the deadline for nominations closes on Sept. 16, “so it still may be forthcoming.” 

Madison and its deadly leftists have been on a collision course with tragedy for quite some time. If its woke leaders want to seal the city’s fate, they will appoint representatives like Schalk to such anarchical boards. 

As Empower Wisconsin has reported, the professor advised Black Lives Matter protesters heading out to riot-ravaged Kenosha and Madison, “please don’t video tape folks doing anything illegal.” 

“(W)ear black, wear shoes you can run in bring water, masks, phone battery, snacks,” she wrote on Twitter the week rioters looted and burned a huge swath of a Kenosha business district. 

Later, Schalk announced: 

“I’m helping supply a group of folks headed to Kenosha tonight. If you want to add to the supply fund for things like water, snacks, first aid supplies, inhalers & ear plugs hit me up on CashApp as $SamiSchalk or PayPal.” 

She boasted that she spent so much money on her credit card in the past two days for supplies “that I just got a fraud alert. But it was all me.” 

Last week, the radical tweeted: 

“Also: Tell me a-fucking-gain why people in this state shouldn’t riot in the streets & burn things to the ground when Republicans here have rigged the system so bad it is impossible to make change within it now. Authoritarian states must be met with revolutionary tactics.”

She’s not worried that her volatile statements and actions have consequences — because they don’t. The university has effectively said it will take no action against Schalk.  

“UW-Madison supports peaceful protest and activism among our students, faculty and staff. We oppose racism and continue to take actions to build a more diverse and inclusive university,” spokesman John Lucas wrote in an email to Empower Wisconsin. 

Apparently, the taxpayer-funded university has a different idea of “peaceful protest.”  

Speaking of taxpayer-funded, as Empower Wisconsin has noted, Schalk rakes in more than $100,000 a year to “teach” college students.
