Even BLM supporters can’t escape the bullying of the left | Denver Gazette

When Denver Public Schools graduate Gigi Gordon launched protests against her school board for harassing serious sexual assault allegations against board member Tay Anderson, Colorado’s preeminent leader of Black Lives Matter, the teenage BLM attorney had no idea what wickedness they would face.

“People say that in high school you get bullied more than anything,” 18-year-old Gordon told me on Saturday on KNUS-Denver radio. “But I’ve never really seen bullying in my life. … It’s intense. It’s more than high school bullying. “

The main allegations against Anderson are that he sexually abused at least 62 students from unsolicited touch to violent rape. It wasn’t the first sexual abuse allegation against Anderson.

In March and April, two liberal groups alleged that Anderson had participated in sexual assault or harassment in the past. In 2019, the Denver Classroom Teachers Association received an anonymous letter accusing Anderson of sexual misconduct. (You endorsed his candidacy anyway and made a substantial donation for it.)

Gordon held a protest at Denver City Hall last Thursday. Along with several other 2021 Denver Public School graduates, Gordon sentenced Anderson’s schoolmates for failing students and asked them to call Anderson to resign. (She’s right: you failed.) They also want new diplomas that have Anderson’s name removed; Gordon’s petition for it has nearly 12,000 signatures. She testified to both claims after the protest in front of the school authorities.

At the protest I was speaking at, a belligerent man yelled Gordon down at her own protest. “I felt like [he] actually tried to attack me, ”said Gordon. “I was scared. I was shaking. You know, it’s really scary. I’m starting to learn this, but I’m strong.”

Community activist Mona Cedillo streamed and mocked the event when she interrupted three teenagers, including Gordon, as they told and condemned stories about what she believed the school district’s failure to properly deal with sexual assault and trauma.

Cedillo stirred for several minutes, claiming she expected suspected Anderson victims to speak at the protest, although organizers never said so.

“Can I say something quickly?” One of the teenagers tried to say.

“No, no, no, no,” insisted Cedillo.

“It’s so horrible for these girls,” added the teenager. Cedillo continued to prove her point until he was eventually silenced by protesters.

“They say kids are mean, but I think adults are mean,” said Gordon. “It takes a lot of courage to hold your own against Tay Anderson. … Just in the last three days, I’ve gotten so much hatred. I finally understand why students are afraid and why students don’t show up and don’t want to be seen at the protests. “

An online smear was from 45-year-old Hashim Coates. Coates, a political activist who campaigned for Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser and Democratic Congressional campaigns, was paid in December 2019 by Anderson’s campaign as a “campaign advisor” in two installments of $ 2,500.

In 2017, Coates pleaded guilty to banning the use of a gun, “having sex with a prostitute and firing a gun into a car that contained the prostitute and three other people”.

Coates commented on a now private Facebook thread, publicly wondering “what? [Gordon’s] Behavior was like in school. … How did she get along with other students? How did she get along with teachers and lecturers? She is as old, if not older, than the man who carried out the Columbine massacre. So if someone this young can have this type of deviant behavior, they are not immune to deviant behavior. “

Another replied that the 18-year-old was “much, much more dangerous. She is a white girl who masters crocodile tears to manipulate others, and the ruins of many … lives will lie behind her. “

Cedillo did not judge the others; she agreed: “not just men. All women who reach out and try to befriend each other follow her.

That’s gross, but it’s the tip of the iceberg. Anderson himself was charged with violating the Denver Public Schools’ policy of retaliation. Apparently his supporters have adopted his tactics.

Across the country, be it by interrupting rallies or carrying out malicious online attacks, the radical left is delighted to intimidate, call off and shut down those who think differently, even youthful BLM supporters! The question is, will Denver Public Schools and the Denver Classroom Teachers Association, along with other school districts and teacher unions across the country, tolerate such obnoxious, threatening behavior?
