You might remember this recent bout of Republican outrage directed at the UW over liberalism, just in time to cut more of their funding. I've highlighted in red the important point about Sheriff Clarke that explains the story below.
The Men’s Project, a six-week voluntary discussion program that “aims to explore masculinity and the problems accompanied by simplified definitions of it.”The enemy of education State Sen. Steve Nass (R) had a "toxic masculinity" fit:
Nass: "UW-Madison has become part of a national liberal effort to rid male students of their 'toxic masculinity … believe that Wisconsin mothers and fathers have done a poor job of raising their boys by trying to instill in them the values and characteristics necessary in becoming a Man.”Funny thing, Republicans (and fake Democrats like Clarke) need this course more than any student. Check out Sheriff Clarke's weak kneed recent confrontation with a citizen:
Dan Black registered a complaint with the county. Uh oh, you know what that means!
Once in the safe confines of his office, this cowardly "toxic masculine" cowboy...
...had a message to anyone who wants to hassle him while he's jetting about the country: "Next time he or anyone else pulls this stunt on a plane they may get knocked out. The sheriff said he does not have to wait for some goof to assault him. He reserves the reasonable right to pre-empt a possible assault."Unless I've missed my guess, that would be considered an assault, right?
See what I mean by this simplified problem of toxic masculinity?
The Men’s Project, a six-week voluntary discussion program that “aims to explore masculinity and the problems accompanied by simplified definitions of it.”When Sheriff Clarke is finally voted out of office after admitting and cheering on the Cowboys, hoping to knock the Packers out of the playoffs, he can teach this suggested course by former State Rep. Michelle Litjens (R):
Litjens: "I think our students need to be offered both sides...they're offering a class about how not to be strong men anymore...but they also should be offering a class on, "If You Want to be a Strong Man, Here's How to Do It." You know we need to be offering both sides to our students..."
