UW Prof’s advice to rioters: wear shoes you can run in

Empower Wisconsin | Aug. 26, 2020 

MADISON — “If you’re going out tonight in Madison or Kenosha, please don’t video tape folks doing anything illegal…” 

That’s the advice of Dr. Sami Schalk, another dingbat radical professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, to the “peaceful” protesters who tore up the two cities in a second night of rioting. 

“(W)ear black, wear shoes you can run in bring water, masks, phone battery, snacks. If you get gassed, rinse your eyes w/ water only, we don’t know what chemical they’re using,” Schalk tweeted Monday night.

“Write the name of a bail out friend at home on your leg in Sharpie. Let people know where you plan to be & how long you plan to stay out. Stick with the group. Don’t leave comrades behind. I’ll be doing support from home tonight & monitoring my people. Good luck.”

Good luck. 

The associate professor at UW’s Department of Gender & Women’s studies offered her words of wisdom a night after Black Lives Matter protesters smashed up and burned down businesses and vehicles, looted stores and injured police officers. 

The “civil unrest” followed the officer-involved shooting Sunday afternoon of Jacob Blake, a black man, in Kenosha.

Kenosha businesses and public property have recorded what appears to be millions of dollars in damage from the riots. And hundreds turned out in downtown Madison again Tuesday, smashing windows at the Capitol and in the State Street area and looting several businesses, according to police. The damage comes on top riots earlier this summer in Madison.

Schalk and others sympathetic to the Black Lives Matter movement rallied the “social justice” warriors on social networks and served as their biggest cheerleaders. 

A UW bio notes Schalk’s research focuses on disability, race, and gender in contemporary American literature and culture, especially African American women’s texts. 

“Dr. Schalk teaches courses on disability studies, black feminism, intersectionality, and literature such as ‘Gender & Social Justice Literature,’ ‘Gender, Disability & Sexuality,’ and “Adaptations of Black Women’s Literature,’” the bio states. 

The professor draws a taxpayer-funded salary of more than $102,000 per year, according to a Wisconsin State Journal database. 

A university official did not return Empower Wisconsin’s request for comment.
