Tool of the Week: Cancel Culture police chief

Empower Wisconsin | Feb.1, 2021

MADISON — Madison liberals have routinely shown how much they loathe police officers.

Now, University of Wisconsin-Madison’s police chief is getting in on the act.

Chief Kristen Roman has banned her officers from using “thin blue line” images while on duty, the Wisconsin State Journal reports.

The pro-police thin blue line design, depicted on everything from flags to shirts to face masks, is in large part a response to the hatred trained on law enforcement from radical left groups like the Black Lives Matter movement.

For BLM activists and police defunders, it’s a symbol of racism. The left is desperately trying to connect the image to the rioters that swarmed the U.S. Capitol — with anyone who supports law enforcement.

That’s how UWPD’s chief sees it.

“We must consider the cost of clinging to a symbol that is undeniably and inextricably linked to actions and beliefs antithetical to UWPD’s values,” she said in the Jan. 15 email.

Roman’s opinion on the matter changed after the liberal police department was hounded by radical leftists after a November twitter post showing UW officers with the flag in the background.

Now, Roman says the pro-police image has been “co-opted” by extremists with “hateful ideologies.”

So has the Betsy Ross flag, the OK sign, polo shirts and New Balance shoes, according to the painfully Woke. (New Balance’s president of public affairs was “guilty” of supporting President Donald Trump, and the brand was labeled the “Official Shoes of White People”).

There’s a thin line between UWPD’s “values” and the hate-driven cancel culture. But there is a clear line between being a real leader and being a tool.

Chief Roman has clearly crossed that line.

That’s why the police chief is Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
