Wow, sometime actions DO have consequences
« on: May 23, 2023, 06:00:43 PM »
Triggered lib arts professor finds herself un-professored after expletive filled tirade which included threatening a reporter with a machete.

I am genuinely shocked the college actually booted her. I figured they'd hemhaw around and find some way to sweep it under the carpet.

She will end up with a gig at MSNBC teaching DEI or as a guest panelist on The View.

Adjunct assistant professor....

Essentially a non-entity in the collegiate system.

She could perform abortions, or gender-affirming care.  She's got that machete.

I thought Hunter College had a decent academic reputation. Why in the world would they employ ghetto trash like that, even as an "adjunct assistant" professor?

Rhetorical question. I know the answer: DEI

Harvard used to have one of those "decent academic reputation" things too.

She's suing the NYPD for "abusing" her

Quote
In other developments, it also emerged Rodriguez is currently embroiled in a legal saga against the NYPD over allegations officers abused her when she was arrested in the Bronx during a George Floyd protest in June 2020.

Rodriguez, who is the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit, claims she suffered nerve damage from being zip-tied when she was nabbed and put in a prisoner van with 14 other protesters.

The lawsuit claims Rodriguez was attacked by cops while trying to leave the protest.

Officers allegedly pulled her hair, shoved her face into a gate and repeatedly punched her in the stomach, according to court filings.

In some jurisdictions threatening someone with a machete can get you legally unalived.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

I can easily believe she fought with the cops and provoked that response.

Had an identical threat taken place with the positions of the two people involved reversed, you can BET that not only multiple charges would have been filed by multiple jurisdictions, the usual suspects would be organizing rallies and "mostly peaceful protestsTM" would be breaking out.

By positions do you mean ideology or race?  Because there's plenty of videos of white liberals getting physical (admittedly, the machete is farther out there than most incidents) with black or Hispanic Conservatives, and the liberals get away with it.  The Conservatives are always "White Supremacist's" regardless of color.

If you mean had a conservative of any color attacked a leftist there would be riots and marches, then you are correct.

I was thinking specifically of a supposed male white conservative (or moderate) holding a machete to the throat of a female black marxist.

Playing the race/sex/victim card
All she knows and it's worked for her in the past. Hopefully that ends with this but the cynic in me is saying the college will be issuing an apology soon

Quote
The Manhattan college arts professor who was fired after threatening a Post reporter with a machete and cursing out anti-abortion students claimed Wednesday that she’s the victim — arguing the school had “capitulated” to racists and misogynists by terminating her.
Quote
With her firing, Rodriguez said the school had “capitulated” to “racists, white nationalists, and misogynists.”

“As much as this incident has stakes for my life, it is ultimately just one part of a broader political struggle taking place across the country,” she said.

“Right wing media organizations are weaponizing and sensationalizing this case to further their agenda, and using me as a prism through which to project their attacks on women, trans people, black people, Latinx people, migrants, and beyond.”

So American black nationalism has graduated from "I can't breathe," to "I can't not attack people I disagree with, or keep from putting a machete to their throats." That's wonderful.

Would have been funny as hell to see her intended victim take the machete away from her and shove it up her arse.

In a lot of the country, that's exactly what would have happened, or she would at least have been easily disarmed, holding the machete the way she was. Of course in a lot of the country, while she might have still gotten away with using her big mouth, she wouldn't dare do the machete trick.

As I mentioned earlier, in many jurisdictions threatening someone with a deadly weapon, and a machete is a deadly weapon, is a good way to legally get yourself disalived.

Unarmed peaceful black activist savagely attacked by nazi racist white national supremacist with assault machete while shouting "this is MAGA country!". 30 seconds after the attack Trump still has not condemned the attack.

Well that didn't take long

Quote
A New York City college art professor who was filmed pulling a machete on a reporter's neck and bullying pro-life students from another school seems to have landed on her feet again just four months after being fired.
Quote
But now, barely four months on, Rodriguez has landed a role at Cooper Union.
She is listed as an adjunct professor on the school's website, and is also on the fall semester list of professors.

If I were a hiring manager I would add Cooper Union to the (growing) list of schools I wouldn't recruit potential employees from - quite bluntly, if they hire crazies like this to teach, I have zero confidence in their academics.
