Leftist Professor Implodes When Student Calls Police ‘Heroes’ - WATCH
'Woke' college professor outraged at student who says he supports cops
A leftist college professor suffered a "woke" meltdown when a student gave a presentation and described police as "heroes."
Students from Cypress College in California were discussing their presentations with the professor during a communications class on Zoom.
One student, Braden Ellis, gave a presentation about “cancel culture,” which he described as being “destructive and tearing our country apart.”
Ellis gave the example of “Paw Patrol,” a children’s cartoon that recently came under attack from the Left for portraying police in a positive light.
Activists were calling for the kids' show to be canceled during the height of the Black Lives Matter protests last year.
After his presentation, a ten-minute question-and-answer session took place, according to Ellis.
During a recording of the video conference, the professor is seen scolding Ellis for calling police “heroes” and saying that the majority of cops are generally doing a good job.
The professor began by stating that the issue with police is “systemic” and “stems from people in the south wanting to capture runaway slaves.”
Another classmate chimed in to say that police shouldn’t be called heroes and don’t belong on a children’s television show.
“I disagree … I think cops are heroes and they have to have a difficult job,” Ellis said before the professor cuts him off.
“All of them?” she asks.
“I’d say a good majority of them. You have bad people in every business,” Ellis responded before the professor cut him off again.
"A lot of police officers have committed atrocious crimes and have gotten away with it and have never been convicted of any of it,” the professor states.
"And I say [that] as a person that has family members who are police officers.”
Ellis said that while it’s not a popular belief, he does support the police.
“Yes, I understand,” he said.
“This is what I believe … This is not popular to say, but I do support our police.
"And we have bad people, and the people that do bad things should be brought to justice, I agree with that.”
The professor argued that police who do bad things aren’t brought to justice, and Ellis said he agreed with her that they should be brought to justice.
“So, what is your bottom line point?” the professor asked.
“You’re saying police officers should be revered? Viewed as heroes?
"They belong on TV shows [for] children?”
Ellis said that despite the fact that police have problems, they should be considered heroes because they help people.
The exchange moved on when Ellis asked the professor who she would call if somebody with a gun broke into her house.
She said that she would not call the police and in fact would call “nobody.”
The professor added that she wouldn't call the police because she doesn’t “trust them.”
“My life’s in more danger in their [presence],” the professor said.
Ellis told The Daily Wire that he was surprised to hear his professor’s comments, but believes in pushing back against liberal ideology on college campuses.
“I was shocked to hear her comments about police, but I stood firm in my beliefs,” he said.
“We need to fight back against this liberal ideology spreading in our colleges and save America.”
