Panicked Lib Professor Calls 911 on ROTC

by Kim Quade on March 23, 2016

Another day, another liberal university professor clutching her pearls and going nearly spasmodic over guns.

Heidi Czierwic, an English professor at the University of North Dakota, was in her office when she saw two individuals walking near her window wearing camouflage and toting what appeared to her to be guns.

Heidi Czerwiec.

The panicked professor scurried to her Safe Space — which in this case was under her desk — and proceeded to call 911. Here is what she said happened, as she wrote in an overwrought letter to the Grand Forks Herald:

I look up from my office computer to see two figures in camo with guns outside my window. My first thought is for my students’ and my safety: I grab my phone, crawl under my desk and call 911. The dispatcher keeps me on the line until someone can see if ROTC is doing maneuvers.

I can barely talk—first, with fear, and then with rage when the dispatcher reports back that yes, in fact, I’ve probably just seen ROTC cadets, though they’re going to send an officer to check because no one has cleared it with them. They thank me for reporting it.

Just ROTC candidates going about their business. But that’s not enough for the professor, up to her eyeballs in threats and micro aggressions and macro aggressions and whatever other aggressions she could concoct in her fervid imagination. No, when you’re liberal, you must react with indignation and rage:

A few minutes later, a university officer calls me back—not to reassure me, but to scold me for calling 911. He says ROTC has permission to do this exercise. When I tell him that this was news to 911 and that they encouraged me to call whenever I see a gun on campus, he seems surprised.

He also tells me that ROTC will be doing these exercises for the next couple weeks.

So I reply that I guess I’ll be calling 911 for the next couple weeks—and I will. Every time.

She also called the ROTC activity “unnecessary military maneuvers.”

In her anti-military ignorance, Czerwiec fails to recognize that these activities are far from “unnecessary,” as they are part of programs designed to produce well-trained military officers. These individuals just might be called upon to lead troops to protect this nation, and, by extension, her contemptible tush.

Because of her hysteria, UND has decided to send out campus-wide notifications to the delicate snowflakes on campus as to when the ROTC will be conducting drills. Czerwiec will receive personal notifications, presumably so she doesn’t have to spend her day hiding in terror beneath her desk, frantically clutching her phone and bothering 911 again.

But the joke may be on Czerwiec. Jonn Lilyea, writing for the milblog It Ain’t Hell, reported that when he was an ROTC instructor, the “weapons” his cadets used consisted of a rubber M16-type trainer and demilitarized M1903s which were rendered inoperable. So the ‘deadly’ guns Czerwiec saw may have been unusable anyway.

As Lilyea concludes, “I hope the University keeps a supply of Depends on hand for the professor.”

ROTC and other military drill teams often use hollowed out weapons for there practices and performances. They’re lighter and less dangerous when performing something like the Queen Anne’s Salute which involves tossing the weapon through the air. No drill team practices with loaded weapons. Czerwiec needs to be supplied with a bag of Depends.

In the case of the M1s, they were NOT lighter (at least not at the Academy). The barrels were filled with lead to “de-mil” them. We didn’t have no sissy M-16s. 😉

In Navy OCS in ’79 we carried M1 Garands that were functional, save that the firing pins had been removed and were kept in separate storage. It made for a very satisfying manual of arms, especially the “Inspection arms” and “ready, two” commands.

Nothing like the loud simultaneous “slap” of an entire company’s bolts going forward. Plus, the occasional amusement of seeing somebody pass in review with a bare right hand and a glove dangling from a receiver. And of course the incidents of Garand Thumb to chastise the less nimble.

Oh yes, the rest of the weapon worked with us, too! There was just that extra weight in the top end. 🙂

I heard that after I graduated the M1s were withdrawn and replaced with de-milled 1903s with plugged barrels. I wonder what happened to them, I hope that CMP got them to sell.

My CMP M1 is one of the Danish ones, so not an OCS or Academy or ROTC drill rifle.

Stupid is as stupid does. And this dumb f@ck snowflake teaches? No wonder America is so f*cked up!

Based on her website, she says she teaches English. Of course one of her areas of specialty is “Body issues (the corpse, deformity, bondage/discipline)”. And two of her recent courses are “Diversity in U.S. Literature: Literature of the American South” and “Oral Poetics: Hip-Hop, Lyrics, and Poetry”. Another walking stereotype.

in her fervid imagination

I think you mean “fevered”.

This woman is an idiot and a fool. She should immediately be fired for exhibiting those qualities in such a fashion. “Yes, I know you teach several core courses and your students will be without a teacher after spring break. However, we’ve made arrangements with the zoo to send over several monkeys, whom I’ve been assured are, as a group, more well-versed in Shakespeare than you, so I doubt the students will suffer.”

“Fevered” would work, but “fervid” is a real word. According to my Merriam-Webster app it means, “having or showing feelings that are very strong or too strong.”
Imagination and overly-wrought feelings mashed together = liberal mindset.
And yeah, she should be sacked. But she’d probably end up moving from North Dakota to Berkeley.

Her moving from North Dakota to Berkeley would raise the average IQ in both places.

Heaven forfend that this special snowflake should see actual firearms! When I was in ROTC back in the old stone age, we drilled with thorough functional M-1 rifles with fixed bayonets – and drill teams often used M-1903A1s with the nice long 16″ blade bayonets from the pre-WWII era.

She’s not “panicked”. She gave the game away when she stated she’d keep calling 911 even knowing they were just ROTC.

She’s trying to SWATT them. It’s a crime in North Dakota,

“False information or report to law enforcement officers
(N.D. CENT. CODE § 12.1-11-03)” Up to a year in prison and a $2000 fine, and she’s just stated her intention to repeatedly commit it.

Not only that, but falsely or frivolously calling 911 is a crime in and of itself.

It must be a stressful spring for progressives:
1) Milo’s Dangerous F*ggot Tour, where he might mention truth.
2) The dreaded chalk-wielding Trump 2016 graffiti artist.
3) Now ROTC students performing parade drills.

Perhaps they can get together some BLM and OWS radicals for protection.

I want a chalk gun! It shoots out chalk which writes on the nearest sidewalk something like “Trump!” or “2d Amendment!” or “Freedom!” Then I can really terrify the college masses!

It’s too bad the school is giving her these notifications. Frivolously calling 911 is a crime.

I think what she needs is:
1. the standard tour of the USAF base at Minot, ND, including an orientation flight on a B-52 or a tanker,
2. all expenses paid tour to Fort Benning or Fort Carson – see field manuvers, base facilities,
3.a visit to San Diego or Norfolk to see the home bases of the USN fleet,
and then
4. a tour of Pendleton USMC facilities.
Only then should she be allowed to either comment or show disdain for US military activities. Period.

GWB March 24, 2016 at 9:06 am

Can we put her in the bomb bay for the orientation flight? Or take her up on a jump at Benning? (Tell her to pack her own.) Maybe an outside tour of the USS Topeka while underway?
If she survives all that, then she can tour Pendleton. We should station her on the bayonet course – since her head is full of straw, she should feel right at home with the bayonet dummies there…….

When I was a Boy Scout in Spokane WA in the sixties we once went to the USAF winter survival school at Fairchild AFB. Now that was fun!

In 1969 my ROTC class was invited to spend 2 weeks at Fort Carson. Fireing M50s, seeing tanks training. It was a mini boot camp. Something I will never forget.

One other thing. We had a live fire 22 range in our classroom in high school. I’m sure the door is welded shut today.

Heidi. She still uses the diminutive of Hildegard, which is the grown up version of Heidi. Still a child, I guess.

Back in the day, about 50 years ago, us ROTC types used fully functional M1’s, except for maybe firing pins. No one got the vapors when we loaded up and marched out onto the drill fields fully armed for close order drills. Springfields for drill teams were non functional.

If Heidi is the epitome of today’s faculity, then the universities are in serious need of adult leadership.

No one has guns in North Dakota? Really?
