UW radical prof now supplying Kenosha rioters

Empower Wisconsin | Aug. 28, 2020 

By M.D. Kittle 

MADISON — The University of Wisconsin-Madison professor who earlier this week took to Twitter to cheer on rioters apparently is now supplying them. 

And UW really doesn’t seem to give a damn. 

Dr. Sami Schalk, among the liberal university’s long lineup of radical leftists, 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. If you get gassed, rinse your eyes w/ water only, we don’t know what chemical they’re using,” the associate professor at UW’s Department of Gender & Women’s studies also admonished. 

That was on the second night of the rioting and looting that followed the officer-involved shooting of a black man, a night that left portions of the city in smoldering ruins. 

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.” 

How does the university feel about their professor’s encouragement of illegal activity? 

“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, after repeated requests for comment. 

Yes, diverse and inclusive university. But what about professors supplying rioters? 

“UW-Madison does not endorse views or opinions shared on personal social media accounts of students, faculty and staff,” Lucas said. 

“As a public institution, we recognize the First Amendment rights of students, faculty and staff to express themselves as private citizens and must address such matters consistent with the strict legal limitations that apply to public universities,” he added. 

What if a university employee is aiding and abetting criminal activity? 

“You have our response,” Lucas wrote in a curt, follow-up email. 

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

Schalk came under fire in June, after she endorsed the rioters that tore down iconic statues, firebombed public property and beat up a gay state senator who is a vocal supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. 

“For folks tsk-tsk-ing about statues coming down, let me say this: Those objects have no meaning other than as representations of the state for most young protesters,” she tweeted. “Why should they give a fuck about a dead white dude abolitionist when our people are in cages?”

The “dead white dude” in question is Col. Hans Christian Heg, who abhorred slavery so much he raised a Wisconsin-based Scandinavian regiment and fought and died in the Civil War. His statue on the State Capitol grounds was ripped down by rioters, decapitated and dumped into Lake Monona. 

“Make real substantive long term change commitments or the uprisings will continue,” Schalk threatened. “So many people have so little to lose in the wake of the pandemic. Folks got time & anger & not much else to do with it but disrupt the fuck out of this city.”

  • Gender and Womens Studies? Talk about a bogus useless degree! What a joke. Create a degree for people too dumb for STEM. What’s her minor? Underwater basket weaving. She’s a leach. What a wasteful hate filled pathetic use of tax payers money. I know business owners who when they see this major on a reume it goes in the circular file. No one wants to hire a trouble maker.

  • Agree, When are the republicans of this state going to stand up and attack the dems. Evers should be tried for treason against the state. Every piece of scum demorat in Gov that have allowed/promoted and aided, people to be killed by these fascists and the business destroyed should be tried for treason. The fascists should be shot on site..The groups are not protesters they ARE COMMUNISTS. The marchers with signs distract Dem owned cowardly police while hooded masked antifa do destruction and then if anything of value is worth taking the black move in and steal goods, If any of you have watched the videos from around the country that is what you see. Wake up and admit it. And stand up. These SOBs have guns also. There are NO peaceful protest only animals in the streets.

  • To be accurate on this story you need to know who she was supplying the supplies to. It is easy to jump to the conclusion it was the Rioters but it could have been to the protesters. Yes she has other tweets that would lead you to believe that, however this specific one does not indicate that. In this time where Marxists are hijacking narratives and using situations to their advantage, inferring with no facts that she was contributing to illegal activities without having the facts is not a good path to take. Finding out who she gave the money too and what they were doing is where you want to be.
