Professor Patrick Malloy on left, Sheriff David Clarke on right

Perhaps the ultimate irony to this story may lie in the ludicrous concept of ‘WHITE PRIVLAGE” coined by self-loathing white progressives like Professor Patrick Malloy who apparently decided to rescind an invitation extended to a prominent "black law enforcement agent" because of his views towards a "black organization".

Obviously the good professor most have his head deep in university paperwork or perhaps didn’t do his homework when he invited outspoken Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke to speak at the University of New Haven.

Moreover the blissfully misinformed professor actually stated that Sheriff Clarke misrepresented his intentions to the university, really?

I would like to apologize and take responsibility for my actions that have compromised the University of New Haven and put the community in a difficult position with regard to my discussions with Sheriff David Clarke to speak at the University.

I approached Sheriff Clarke in June about speaking at the Markle Symposium. In the subsequent weeks, I exchanged multiple emails with his assistant about logistics. I was not completely accurate, though, with the information I shared with University officials. I indicated that Sheriff Clarke made a series of demands around his travel arrangements. I unintentionally misrepresented what the Sheriff asked for.

Ultimately, in collaboration with the dean of the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences, 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. My colleagues and I in the Lee College determined that this talk would be more appropriate for another time.

I realize that my actions put the University and its leadership at risk. I sincerely apologize to President Kaplan, the University community and Sheriff Clarke.

Malloy said in a statement sent to FOX 61.

The dust-up began when Clarke first received an invitation from UNH asking if he would be a keynote speaker at the 25th Annual Markle Symposium at the end of October, Clarke accepted the invitation, but later received another phone call rescinding the invitation to be a guest speaker, because of his very public stance against the Black Lives Matter movement, which he has coined “Black Lies Matter.”

Perhaps I’m missing something in that Sheriff David Clarke is a public figure, and has been on countless news broadcasts as a spokesmen regarding all manner of policing issues, and has been in the public eye for several years, furthermore he’s been interviewed on nationwide broadcasts including CNN, MSNBC, FOX, CBS, NBC and in countless news publications, like the New York Times, and featured in several nationwide publications. And he been an outspoken critic of Black Lives Matter from their inception.

Sheriff Clarke responded to the brush off stating: “They said a formal invitation was never granted, they’re lying about that,” Sheriff Clarke said. “All this stuff about a presidential suite, I’ve never in my life asked for a presidential suite. I have asked on speaking occasions for a suite because I spend several days and I have to do work and it’s kind of hard to do it at Days Inn or Motel 6.”

Which begs the question “who” or “which” organization put the pressure on the University of New Haven to have Sheriff Clarke’s invitation revoked?
