Crazy People Are Dangerous: Student SJW Tasered After Disrupting Campus Speech

Posted on | April 13, 2019 | No Comments

 

Gerard Dabu (pictured above) has at least two aliases — “Jammie Jammers” and “Delta Chambers” — and was already notorious as a social justice warrior (SJW) before he disrupted a speech Thursday:

A protester was arrested after a substance was thrown at a guest lecturer on the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s campus Thursday night.
A UMKC student group, Young Americans for Freedom, sponsored the event, “A Night with Michael Knowles.”
Knowles, a conservative political commentator and columnist, was set to give a speech titled “Men are Not Women” when protesters disrupted the event.
A spokesperson for UMKC said after several warnings, disruptions to the event continued.
Video posted online of the event shows an individual wearing a mask pushing into the event with a squirt gun and spraying a substance at Knowles before being tackled and shocked with a taser by UMKC police. . . .
Officials with the university issued a statement saying in part, “While we have a responsibility to allow free speech on our campus, we cannot condone physical disruptions of peaceful campus activities. We believe that free speech can be exercised in a constructive way that doesn’t put people at risk.”
Police continue to investigate, while the university officials say they will be reviewing campus policies and procedures.
The individual arrested has been identified as UMKC student Gerard G. Dabu.
UMKC officials said Dabu has been charged with peace disturbance — disturbing schools or lawful assemblies; assault on law enforcement; and property damage in addition to assault and resisting arrest of law enforcement and in the discharge of their duties.

You can watch video of the event, sponsored by the Young America’s Foundation, in which Knowles begins by saying:

“You’ll notice, by the way, our topic this evening — ‘Men Are Not Women’ — should be an uncontroversial statement. You would think it would be like saying, ‘The sky is blue.’ You would think it would be like saying, ‘Fire is hot.’ But no, tonight’s topic is very, very controversial. Nevertheless, it is in fact the case that men are not women.”

Indeed, how crazy do you have to be to get so offended by such an innocuous statement that you end up getting tasered and arrested?

Well, as crazy as Gerard Dabu, the 23-year-old son of a senior enlisted man in the U.S. Navy who, evidently, is alienated from his family. Dabu seems to have moved from Hawaii to Kansas in order to become the roommate of another notorious SJW named Leah Albee.

A self-described “fat femme queer,” Albee was employed by her father’s business until July 2016 when Albee, Dabu and some of their friends decided to have a flag-burning for the Fourth of July. This resulted in Albee’s father firing her from her job and kicking her and her friends out of their house, saying that she had “crossed a line,” and telling her in a text message: “Well I guess you can live without my capitalist money. . . . Go be a socialist. See how well it works.”

All of this drama was played out on social media (it appears Dabu and Albee may have connected via Tumblr). That same year, 2016, Dabu was interviewed by a newspaper in Wyandotte County, Kansas, identified as a member of a local feminist group, explaining that “she” feared for “her” safety if Donald Trump got elected:

“To put it bluntly, while protesting is dangerous, what would happen if Trump becomes president would be even more dangerous to us,” she said, “and even if he doesn’t become president, the white supremacists have been reinvigorated and would pose a threat to all our members.”

Yet here we are, more than two years into the Trump presidency, and we must ask, who poses a threat to whom? Knowles was standing at a lectern in a university classroom, delivering a speech on a topic which, as he says, should not have been controversial at all, when he was assaulted by Dabu. You can watch the video and note how civil Knowles was in responding to the disruptive hecklers:

 

The incident that led to Dabu’s arrest happens at about the 19-minute mark, and let’s hope law-enforcement authorities inflict the maximum penalty on Dabu, who should be locked up in jail — or perhaps a mental-health facility — for a long, long time. Crazy People Are Dangerous.
