Letters to the Editor — May 25, 2023

The Concern: A former Hunter School adjunct professor who held a machete to a Publish reporter’s throat.

The threatened act of violence from Shellyne Rodriguez towards Publish reporter Reuven Fenton — clearly there to interview Rodriguez at her dwelling — is disturbing, to say the least (“The nutty professor,” Could 24).

She had flipped out on campus after seeing college students internet hosting anti-abortion literature at a desk. Her conduct there prolonged to her private conduct at her dwelling.

Thank heaven Fenton and the photographer lived to inform of it.

Kudos to Hunter School for promptly firing artwork trainer Shellyne Rodriguez.

Two Publish staffers have been merely doing their job after they have been threatened with a machete. Rodriguez clearly has mental-health points.

The place are Manhattan District Legal professional Alvin Bragg and Bronx District Legal professional Darcel Clark?

This so-called professor allegedly dedicated two crimes — one on the campus of Hunter School and the opposite within the Bronx housing improvement the place she lives.

Why have fees not been introduced in opposition to her?

On the Hunter campus, she harassed college students.

Then at her Bronx housing improvement, she positioned a machete in opposition to the neck of a reporter. Why was she not instantly arrested?

One want solely learn this text to see simply how far we’ve fallen.

We reside in a world the place leftists can keep on and grow to be fully unglued with out penalties.

So Hunter School lastly fired Shellyne Rodriguez — after she took a machete to a reporter’s neck.

But earlier than that, she harassed and bullied college students exercising their First Modification rights.

What the heck was she doing there within the first place? She didn’t grow to be a nutcase over evening.

That is one other instance of how the left has contaminated our establishments and is harming our children.

School campuses are not tolerant, and there’s no free and open alternate of concepts.

This motion began way back, and we’re simply now starting to really feel the fallout.

The picture of a machete-wielding faculty professor may very well be humorous if it weren’t so tragic.

This lunatic was really employed by an establishment of upper studying.

What was her topic, hand-to-hand fight?

Harmful woke political activists like Shellyne Rodriguez are a byproduct of the more and more violent social-justice warriors inspired by the Democrats to assault and destroy concepts or viewpoints that don’t coincide with the novel philosophy of the left.

So this professor doesn’t want a educating job. She wants mental-health counseling.

Mockingly, it’s possible that Rodriguez might be employed by one other New York college on account of her “courageous stand” in opposition to anti-abortionists.

The shortage of restraint by Shellyne Rodriguez in opposition to an anti-abortion show on campus, in addition to her machete-wielding threats in opposition to a Publish reporter, is the results of a woke tradition that solely acknowledges its personal viewpoint.

Whether or not at Stanford, San Francisco State or CUNY, civil discourse, as soon as the hallmark of our nice universities, has been changed by yelling, screaming and violence by leftists in opposition to anybody with a less-radical agenda than their very own.

The place are the deans and provosts, who needs to be defending freedom of speech and civil discourse on campus?

“What am I, chopped liver?”

Perhaps former Hunter School adjunct professor Shellyne Rodriguez was merely having a nasty day when she pulled out her trusty machete and threatened to hack the neck of a Publish reporter.

No less than it didn’t occur within the subway system, the place there’s all the time the opportunity of being shoved onto the tracks.
