My response to the University of New Haven’s lies (I guess they didn’t think we kept the emails) October 7, 2016

Dear English Majors at the University of New Haven, you might want to get your money back.

The Official Facebook page of the university continues to show the college lacks a basic grasp of the English language.

First, they said they rescinded my invitation from the forensics conference because “circumstances did not permit” my attendance.  I don’t think they spelled “we decided to bow down to political correctness” right.

Second, after undoubtedly feeling the pressure, they came back with a different story.  This time, they said “an invitation was explored but never officially extended” to me.  So, why did they originally say that an invitation was “rescinded?”  (You don’t rescind an invitation that never happened.)

Third, I think they might not even understand the word “extended” when they said an “invitation was not extended.”  Here’s a line from the original email from Patrick Malloy DBA (identified as “Senior Lecturer – Director MS Investigations”)

We would like to invite Sheriff David Clarke to be our keynote speaker this year.  

Here’s the truth — we made a deal, we started making arrangements, and they called and said I was disinvited over my #BlackLivesMatter stance.  If this President wants to continue to lie and spin on the fact that I backed out due to statements I’ve made about the hateful ideology called #BlackLivesMatter, then I’ll oblige.  Predictably, the college is trying to get out of this mess by saying I was being too demanding – a total lie.  Ask any of the hundreds of organizations I’ve spoken to over the years.  In fact, I even waived my honorarium since I’d be speaking to mainly law enforcement.

Everyone knows that if I was a #BlackLivesMatter advocate or some sort of social justice warrior, the college would’ve paid an honorarium, flew me first class, and — hell — probably given me an honorary degree.

For those of you seeking real degrees from this university?

Well, if I was an English major at that college, I’d start to worry.

But you don’t have to take my word for it.  Click CONTINUE TO SEE the emails that show that the university is completely and utterly lying about all of this.

    Are you kidding me? The university released a second statement that said your demands were too expensive. Whether or not you want to call the University cheap is your call, but you literally just proved to us that you priced yourself out of UNH. Further, NONE of your oh so precious saved emails remotely hint at or mention your stance on black lives matter. I’m glad they rejected you, you clearly are not a true professional if you are going to overreact in the most asinine manner.

      Jane…You must have never booked a speaker for an event such as this. They normally ask for much more and a speaking fee. The Sheriff was waiving his speaking fee completely. His emails are not where his feelings on BLM were seen. He has spoken, many times, about his feelings on BLM! It is totally normal to fly 1st Class and request a certain room. He was requesting far less than most Key Note Speakers!

    Is this the third article that captain #coonin has personally written to whine about the legal decision that the University made to disinvite him.I hope these childish entitled rants cause other university’s to rescind their offers. You don’t get a job you move on you don’t whine about it in multiple articles like some petulant child upset that cookies are off limits after 8pm. Despite his Fox news celebrity Clarke is generally disliked for his hateful divisive dishonest hyperbolic partisan rhetoric.
    To compare BLM to the KKK is probably the most vile disrespectful misrepresentation possible considering the kkk actually murdered raped maimed and terrorized the families of individuals that are still alive to remember that there is not even a modicum of equivalency there but Clarke often repeats that false equivalency to people that actually no history and have respect for the lives adversely affected by the atrocities of the KKK. No educated person that is not pandering to race based bigots could ever make such a comparison.
    Notice he is peddling a book that he has not even completed writing lol what a joke.
