University of New Haven Disinvites Sheriff David Clarke due to Possible ‘Politically Polarizing’ Comments

, Spencer Irvine, 2 Comments

Administrators at the University of New Haven disinvited Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke due to the possibility he might say something that could offend someone, and then tried to cover that up:

When challenged, the university simply chose to lie about why it had disinvited Clarke. UNH initially released a statement claiming that Clarke had never been formally invited, and his travel and accommodation demands were too difficult to satisfy. After Clarke called UNH out on the lie, the administration backtracked, finally conceding to Campus Reform, “we decided not to finalize his arrangements to visit campus when it was determined his appearance could potentially become politically polarizing in light of the imminent presidential election.”
