The left’s war on cops reached a new low this week when administrators from a prominent Jesuit college supported a student protest in which cops were labeled as “pigs,” and the police was referred to as the “Blue Klux Klan.”
Last week, the Department of Campus Ministry at Loyola University Chicago, a private Jesuit Catholic College in Illinois, sent out the following tweet in support of students engaging in the anti-police protest:
“Proud and humbled by the die-in some of our black students did today. #BlackLivesMatter #livingthemission.”

The hashtag #livingthemission is likely in reference to the school’s mission statement and the religious values and identity that it seeks to instill in all students during their time at the school. Apparently, administrators feel that referring to those who protect and serve American citizens every day as “pigs” and the “Blue Klux Klan” is in line with the school’s values.
The rally, titled “#blackoutchi,” featured students and others marching around the college’s Lake Shore campus, with traffic being temporarily shut down as protestors stood in the road.
Protestors at the rally also voiced their displeasure over Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s pledge to hire 1,000 new police officers in response to recent increases in violent crime that have plagued Chicago. One sign read: “AmeriKKKa is not welcome #blackoutchi #1000pigs #leavemethefuckalone.”
Chicago remains one of the most violent cities in America, with a record 3,200 shootings and 568 homicides so far in 2016.
One can only wonder what these protestors would say if the police in Chicago decided to not come to work anymore.
