This is Wachusett Regional High School Senior class president Sarah Flannery.
And she decided to take to Snapchat the other day to burn a thin blue line flag and say some violent shit about cops:
“All cops, if there is such thing as a good cop, which I don’t think there is, should quit. The only good cop that’s still employed is a dead cop. If you are a good cop then you’ve already resigned.”
“Die mother fucker die.”
“I want the state of America abolished.”
She seems lovely.
Sarah is attending UMass Amherst in the fall.
If there were any consistency in this world they would rescind her acceptance. I personally do not believe they should because I believe in redemption, but Parkland survivor and valedictorian Kyle Kashuv had his offer rescinded from Harvard last year after racist texts from a private conversation he had when he was 16 were published. However, wishing death upon all cops on her Snapchat page for the world to see is certainly no better than racist comments in a private conversation. Kyle Kashuv is a conservative, while Sarah Flannery certainly is not. Thus she will likely suffer no consequences.
Perhaps her world view was shaped by this district wide email sent out by superintendent Darryll McCall.
Nowhere in that email does it mention anything about the fact that over 10 times the amount of police officers were killed in the line of duty last year than unarmed black people. It’s an undeniable statistical fact. There were no unarmed black people killed in Massachusetts, but we have lost Michael Chesna, Sean Gannon, and Ron Tarentino in a short amount of time. Where was this email the last time one of those officers was killed? Why are the public schools sending out emails like this to taxpaying residents in a district that has almost no diversity whatsoever? Why was he inspired to write this by a 19 year old who told him it was urgent?
“Acts of violence against people of color occur so frequently.”
No, they don’t. That’s just a lie to imply that cops frequently kill people of color. Ten unarmed black people were killed by police in 2019 out of a population of 40 million.
“I am racially privileged because of the color of my skin.”
No, you’re not. White privilege is a theory, not a fact. You BELIEVE you have racial privilege due to the color of your skin, but I disagree. You believe that because you didn’t grow up in Main South like the white, brown, and black kids I went to school with. I was more privileged than them, not because of the color of my skin, but because I grew up in a two parent household on the west side.
“The peaceful protests that occur will bring about systemic change.”
No, they won’t. And they’re far from peaceful. Retired African-American cop David Dorn was killed by looters. There will be no protest for him.
Black police officer Dave Underwood was murdered by one of those “peaceful protesters” in Oakland. There will be no protest for him.
White police officer Shay Mikalonis is fighting for his life after being shot by a protester in Las Vegas. There will be no protest for him.
These protests will not bring any changes because the demands of the protesters literally include abolishing the police. This is not hyperbole. Today in Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey showed up to a BLM protest and was asked if he would abolish the police because according to the woman asking him, “we don’t want no more police. We don’t want people with guns in our community.” When he told them he could not abolish the police, because this would be an extremely racist move that would affect the black community in much worse ways than it would affect white communities, he was told to “get the f out” before doing a walk of shame. (they literally chanted “shame”)
This is incredible.
Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey showed up to a protest & tried to spew hollow platitudes about "putting [police] in their place." The organizers asked him if he would commit to defunding the police.
He said no.
They forced him to leave.pic.twitter.com/i5Jua7XW0M

Go on Twitter and see how much praise these protesters are getting. Do commenters like this one sound like they have any desire to be peaceful?
I don’t think anyone understands what it’s like in this city right now. We are in control. We are the community and if you think we are stopping without ending the white supremacist state apparatus nationwide you are mistaken. This is a revolution not a protest.

“We are in control.”
“This is a revolution, not a protest.”
And the superintendent is fanning these flames with his rhetoric.
“The inherent racial biases we all have.”
Speak for yourself, I have no inherent racial biases, and I will not read your book. Unlike you I feel no shame for being born who I am, and I will not embarrass myself as you have chosen to do.
“Help guide conversations with my children.”
I will guide my children as I see fit, and you will have NOTHING to do with how I choose to raise my children.
Maybe this is how Sarah Flannery got this way. Our public schools are teaching kids that white people should feel horrible guilt because of the color of their skin. That they are responsible for sins of the past. That there is only one correct way to think about racial issues, despite black conservatives like Candace Owens, Brandon Tatum, and Rob Smith who don’t believe any of the things he’s saying. According to people like Joe Biden, “they ain’t black,” because they don’t blindly vote for cowardly democrats like Mayor Jacob Frey. This was him pretending to cry over George Floyd’s casket two days ago.
Just like Sarah Flannery, he is young and brainwashed with this sort of dangerous, self-hating dogma. It needs to end. The hatred towards police that is being pushed in public schools and universities is the real cause of our problems right now.
