A Cypress College student who voiced his stance—and hailed the police force as heroes, who deserved to be on children’s shows—was rebuked by a left-wing professor who defended the cancel culture. In a karmic payback of sorts, the teacher herself was canceled after the virtual class session went viral.

It was further alleged that the educator told the 19-year-old Braden Ellis that police were created in the American South to track down runaway slaves and suggested that “policing is inherently a form of systemic racism."

The teacher, whose identity remains undisclosed, reportedly stated that she would be in “more danger” if she summoned cops during an armed home invasion. She has been placed on a leave of absence for the rest of the semester.

It is unlikely for her to return in the fall, as suggested in a recent statement that read: “Cypress College takes great pride in fostering a learning environment for students where ideas and opinions are exchanged as a vital piece of the educational journey. Our community fully embraces this culture; students often defend one another’s rights to express themselves freely, even when opinions differ. Any efforts to suppress free and respectful expression on our campus will not be tolerated.”

The viral video footage captured the teacher’s aggressiveness in terms of questioning and derailing Ellis’s arguments against cancel culture and police sentiment.

Visibly relieved at the school’s proactiveness, Ellis spoke to Fox News on Saturday. “I pray for the success of Cypress College, but we need to root out this liberal ideology that’s tearing our country apart,” Ellis told Fox News Saturday after the school’s announcement, further adding, “Always do it with gentleness and respect, but Republicans, conservatives, Christians and independent thinkers need to fight back and defend our country’s values.”

Video of the exchange shows his calm response to the teacher’s aggressive line of questioning and attempts to derail his arguments against cancel culture and anti-police sentiment. The teacher is seen dishing out sweeping statements like: “A lot of police officers have committed an atrocious crime and have gotten away with it and have never been convicted.” To which, Ellis is seen responding rather calmly, “People that do bad things should be brought to justice. I agree with that.”

While the presentation wasn’t visibly captured in the video, Ellis averred that the disagreement unfolded as he argued against the “cancel culture” and backed his perspectives with several controversies involving TV shows and the police as part of an assignment for a communications class that had signed up. Despite the murky incident, Ellis refused to disclose the teacher’s name in a bid to protect her privacy.

“I pray for her continued success in her career,” he said Saturday, soon after the school issued a statement. “Our country needs unity and bad. Keep praying for America,” he added.
