By California Globe. A State Assembly resolution would urge University of California directors to remove a professor who made horrific remarks on social media about killing cops. However, last week Democrats refused to even hear the resolution.
Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) authored H.R 22, which urges the University of California to remove English Professor Joshua Clover from the classroom and terminate his employment at the University of California, Davis. . .
“Can’t we at least agree there is no place for this on our taxpayer funded campus and condemn these hateful statements?” Gallagher asked on Facebook, after his colleague Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez posted a video about his H.R 22 being killed by Democrats. “The Democrats killed that Resolution,” Melendez said. “They won’t even allow it to be heard; they won’t even allow it to be discussed.”
“This is someone in our state schools, paid for with tax dollars…” Melendez said. The resolution simply called for his comments to be condemned by university officials. “Sadly, the Democrats decided no action needed to be taken, and not even to be discussed.”
Assemblyman Gallagher also delivered more than 10,000 petitions to the UC Davis administration from people across the state requesting that Clover be fired. (Read more from “No Punishment for College Professor Who Called for Murder of Cops” HERE)
