From a city council’s vote to abolish one of America’s largest police departments to rioters defacing a statue of President Abraham Lincoln, the response to calls for law enforcement reforms have shifted from understandable, if not justified, to (putting it nicely) bananas.

The Left’s calls are reminiscent of the disastrous Paris Commune or for those more familiar with recent history, the tumult that grew out of the Vietnam War. In both cases, the anarchists lost decisively. The French Army crushed the Commune, and Nixon won the 1968 election, followed by Republican presidential candidates winning seven of the next ten elections. Not that we expect leftists to finish their history books.

Here are some of the most ludicrous responses to calls for action. Responses that are boosting President Trump’s reelection prospects as I type this.

Prof Suspended for Not Canceling Finals for Black Students

UCLA students doxxed and called for the firing of Accounting Professor Gordon Klein for refusing to waive his class’ final exam over the death of George Floyd.

UCLA senior Preet Bains started a petition shortly afterward to have Klein fired for what he called an “extremely insensitive, dismissive, and woefully racist response.” As of Tuesday afternoon, 19,925 people had signed it.

The University caved to the woke mob and suspended Klein, where he had been teaching since 1981. He is spending these days at home under police protection, having received multiple threats.

People Denouncing Their Whiteness and Washing Black People’s Feet

White police officers and community leaders washed the feet of two black church leaders (to emulate Jesus washing his disciples’ feet) at a peaceful march in suburban Raleigh, North Carolina.

It remains unclear how washing someone else’s feet will end racism.

Vandalizing Abe Lincoln Statue

Rioters in London’s parliament square scampered up an iconic statue of the Great Emancipator to scribble the names of people who died in police custody. Soon, graffiti “adorned” the monument. 

Besides damaging the famous likeness, the incident left observers scratching their heads. Freeing millions of slaves and preserving the Union transformed Lincoln into a secular saint after his assassination. An opinion fervently held to this day.

Cultural Appropriation Gone Wild

Some liberals ill-advisedly dressed in African garb while asking black people for forgiveness.

The pandering wasn’t limited to intellectually challenged individuals. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other elected officials recently donned traditional Kente cloths on Capitol Hill.

An African woman who took exception to the stunt went on Twitter, where her response quickly went viral.

More Historically Challenged Vandals

Before damaging the Lincoln statue in the heart of London, rioters defaced a statue of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Historians credit Churchill’s heroic resistance when Britain stood alone against Nazi Germany with saving Democracy in Europe. Some believe he saved Democracy altogether.

Here’s an entertaining primer for those who missed history class:
