The student, engaged in a heated exchange with his university professor about his support of the police force, has called on Americans to “fight back against liberal ideology.”
Braden Ellis, 19, got into heated discussion with his communications professor at Cypress College after giving a Zoom presentation on ‘canceling culture’ in the United States.
Ellis said the police should be viewed as “heroes,” while the female professor, who was not immediately identified, continued to insist that the police were bad.
In an interview with the New York Post, Ellis said he stood up against college employees who had a “ hatred for our country. ”
“Liberal ideology is bad right now and people have to denounce it and fight back – with gentleness and respect,” he said. The mail.
He said if he and people like him don’t “ fight back, ” the liberal ideology in colleges will be even worse in 10 years.
“It would be pure hate,” said Ellis.
Ellis said there were other college employees who were just as “bad” as the professor he argued with on the tape.
“These teachers are just dividing and hating our country,” he told The Post.
The student, Braden Ellis, got into heated argument with his unidentified communications professor at Cypress College in California after giving a Zoom presentation on “ canceling culture ” and defending the police force.
Images of their exchange, which he says came right after his presentation, show that the Professor interrupted Ellis repeatedly after defending the police.
At one point, she suggested that police were set up in the south to track runaway slaves and that it was a form of systemic racism.
“I think agents are heroes,” said Ellis, who is a business major, at the start of the exchange.
He was immediately interrupted by the professor and said, “All of them?”
Before being cut off again, Ellis managed to argue calmly, “I would say a good majority. You have bad people in every business. ‘
“Yet many police officers have committed a heinous crime and got away with it and never been convicted of it,” the professor was then heard to say.
Ellis replied, ‘This is what I believe … I support our police. We have bad people, and the people who do bad things should be brought to justice … I agree. ‘
The professor then interrupted and said, ‘So what’s your main point? Are you saying that police officers should be revered, seen as heroes? Do they belong on TV shows with kids? ‘
Ellis said, “I think they are heroes in a way because they come to you in need and help you.
“They have problems like any other company and we need to solve them.”
The professor then argued that police work was not a matter as they are supposed to “protect and serve the people.”
When the student asked his professor if she would call the police in an emergency, she claimed she wouldn’t call the police because she doesn’t trust them.
“My life is more in danger in their presence … I wouldn’t call anyone,” she said.
When Ellis wondered what she would do if an intruder entered her house, the professor said class was over.
“I know it’s not popular for me to say that to you guys, but that’s what I believe about the police,” Ellis told his professor and classmates before class was over.
Ellis, who is a company profile, said he did not record his exchange with the professor, but took it from her archive after feeling shocked
