Normal West – What I’ve been told

By: Diane Benjamin

I received a tip for an impeccable source that the Assistant Principal below removed a profile file a student had on his Unit 5 computer because it contained a “thin blue line”. I’m sure you know that represents support for law enforcement.

I emailed Mr. Caffey about the incident and got this reply:

Caffey claims my information is “misguided at best” and a “mischaracterization” of his involvement. He does admit the issue is “under review” by administration, so what are they reviewing Mr. Caffey?

My original email copied the Principal, Dave Johnson and Superintendent Kristen Weikle. Neither of them responded.

Caffe does have this picture on his Facebook page:

I wonder if Caffey knows Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose? That news was kept quiet because it benefited those who wanted people outraged. Meanwhile a multi-millionaire can claim racism without criticism.

This report was on Facebook, I redact the name of the person who posted it:

Since nobody if officially talking at Unit 5, will we ever know what really happened?

I bet the student and parents will let us know, even if Unit 5 wants to keep secrets.

Why are your kids in public school? Just wait until they are indoctrinated into critical race theory!

  1. Let’s follow liberal logic here. Mr. Caffey has a meme of Colin Kaepernick, and since Colin Kaepernick has called for more violence and supported the riots over the summer, then Mr. Caffey supports burning down buildings, attacking law enforcement, and looting innocent businesses. Since the riots on the 6th at the Capitol were characterized as an erection, I mean insurrection (Schumer slip there, sorry), then Mr. Caffey also supports insurrection against the government. Following local liberal logic, Mr. Caffey should resign his position immediately, and should never be able to show his face in public again.

    Did I do that right?

      1. Your statement about George Floyd death is flat out wrong. George Floyd death was ruled a homicide by the Medical Examiner. “The medical examiner’s final findings, issued June 1, found that Floyd’s heart stopped while he was being restrained and that his death was a homicide caused by “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression”. George Floyd would NOT have died if Chauvin had not knelt on his neck for over 8 minutes.

        Before he knelt on Floyd’s neck, Derek Chauvin was the subject of 18 prior complaints filed against him with the Minneapolis Police Department’s Internal Affairs.

        Get your facts straight before you’re make totally fallacious assertions.

  2. What do you expect, our educational system is a haven for left wing liberal agenda . . . and to prove a point,

    Dear students, faculty, and staff,

    At Wednesday evening’s meeting, the Academic Senate unanimously approved the Sense of the Senate Resolution below that was authored by Senate Chairperson Susan Kalter and Student Senator Dylan Toth:

    Sense of the Senate Resolution
    Approved by the Academic Senate: January 20, 2021

    We condemn in the strongest possible terms the violence that was perpetuated in the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, in an attempt to steal the votes of over 155 million U.S. citizens, and the roles of Donald J. Trump, Rudy Giuliani, and Rep. Mo Brooks in inciting that violent insurrection.

    1. The fraud in the elction was so prevalent even a toddler could see it. Now I know why I left a tenured position years ago when I saw how the taxpayers were taken advantage of and very few majors were worth obtaining. Like politicians you can have a lifetime paycheck with no transparency or accountability.

  3. Heh, ISU loves their racism. I’ve personally seen firsthand a middle management position that was created just to give to a “melinated” employee. That same “melinated” middle manager was allowed to break a “rule” that another “non-melinated” employee was forced to resign for breaking. No warning ever given to the “melinated” middle manager. No disciplinary meeting. No suspension. Nothing. Probably has done the same thing many times after the “non-melinated” employee was forced to resign.

    As far as I’m concerned, ISU can’t close fast enough for me. And good riddance when they do. It’s a cesspool.

  4. Caffey is your typical racist thug with slight powers over others’ (children in this case) who power trips into another dimension with discrimination. Any fool that looks down on support for ALL law enforcement because one bad cop like he does with his “meme” (very professional BTW) isnt fit to be in that position. Thats like saying oh, there was an administrator in timbucktwo that molested a student so….burn cities, businesses, and whatnot because all administrators are bad. These liberal goons have no business running our schools. How many BLM shirts are allowed in school? That group caused more destruction, mayhem and death than one cop could every dream of.

  5. So glad my kids are out of school. I wish I could say I’m surprised by this reaction to an innocent screen saver shot, but I’m not. This type of free speech censorship will only continue to get worse until people get in the face of those committing it. Like the nut black Congresswoman said, “Get in their faces.” What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. It’s not just Unit Five, it’s everywhere. Even private schools are bending over for the far left. I’ll never forget attending graduations at NCHS and watching the black principal and black counselor at the time hug and congratulate every minority student that walked across the stage but not once doing it for a single white student. Such blantant public racism that neither was called on.

  6. Caffey is yet another useful idiot living on a public-funded paycheck hired specifically to spread hate and division and foment communist indoctrination of children. Wonder what he believes his ultimate payout will be in return for services rendered? Maybe he can be “Chief Diversity Officer” (an oxymoron) of Normal, just like the do-nothing in Bloomington. Racism pays big salaries to incompetent people.

  7. Right here is why my son will permanently be doing school from home. I REFUSE to allow my child to be indoctrinated with the hate, propaganda, and literal bullshit schools shove down kids throats. I felt the same when I was in school….hated it then, despise it now. political structure is supposed to be taught to our children, not political ideology. any parent that lets these types of things to continue to just slide under the rug should be ashamed of themselves. MOST of these administrators and faculty only care about those state dollars. :good morning 14,374 dollars, how are you today? please take your seat, the bell has sounded.

  8. Bullshit in, bullshit out. Unfortuanately our party is full of that. However I must admit that this show of power and cheating thing is working pretty good for us lately. Note that “working” is the key term here. Tow the line, keep that paycheck coming in.

  9. DR Caffey is an educator who can’t even write a short email. That is grammatically correct….”whatever source that maybe, that prompted your inquiry “. He has no business teaching kids. Diversity and inclusion is always one sided, I’ve never seen it not be. I agree, ISU can’t close fast enough. The Defund Police bill is sitting on the Governor’s desk. He has 30 days to take action or it becomes law. Since he is a left winger my bets are that he lets it sit for 30 days so it automatically becomes law. He needs to hear from us. It is a terrible bill that is very one sided and is not bipartisan in any way shape or form. Call the governor and let him know what you think

    1. Your plea is well intentioned but a frivolous act. The best way to show your disdain for BN and Illinois is to make plans to move. Both the Dems and Republicans in Illinois are equality useless and as we have seen again in the past few weeks. They are all liars who are in politics to advance themselves, nothing more. I can buy land and build a brand new house in an adjoining state with a house payment that would be two thirds what I pay here with property taxes that are half as much. The only thing that changes here is that everything gets progressively worse.

  10. Neither CNN or MSNBC “told” me anything. You have a lot of nerve coming from a white woman throwing around your bigotry and misinformation. Maybe if you and every single white person on this forum got out of their lily white bubble butts you’d actually know a thing or two.

    I wonder how long anyone here would last if a 180 pound policeman knelt on their neck. That is how George Floyd died, begging for his life. There is a plenitude of video evidence of the overuse of police restraint tactics during that arrest. Derek Chauvin was arrested and charged with second and third degree murder. He and the other two police officer will stand trial in March of this year for the murder of George Floyd. Those are the facts. It didn’t matter if Floyd was on fentanyl, he was suffocated by a policeman who with knowledge how it would kill, knelt on a person’s neck for 8 minutes.

    1. george floyd was a life long thug and junkie who had an overdose level of fentanyl in his system. seems like there could be a better martyr for a movement. here’s a thought: maybe discourage people from doing the things that get them in that type of position in the first place. crazy idea, i know.

    2. white woman, bigot, white person, lily white butts, you are part of the problem. I don’t give a rats ass what color you are, what you have been thru, or where you are from….if you perpetuate hate speech in defense of hate speech…..then you are part of the exact problem you continue to stand on your soap box addressing. can you not have a educated, civil exchange without resorting to hate speech? maybe you and others with the same mindset should really do some soul searching because you look and sound like fools every single time you claim to be fighting hate with hate. just a friendly tip.

  11. Dispatch: This is 911 what is your emergency?
    Silkyfield: There’s someone trying to break in my back door. HELP!
    Dispatch: Do you have a pair of scissors?Are you in your safe space?
    Silkyfield: I live in my safe space! My whole house should be my safe space! HELP! He’s got a knife!!!
    Dispatch: Do you have your scissors and do you know how to use them?
    Silkyfield: (Screams) Oh my God, (sound of glass breaking) please help me! Get some cops out here! HELP!
    Dispatch: I’m sorry ma’am. Since defunding the police we no longer have anyone on third shift. Now grab those scissors and I’ll try to talk you through it.
    Moral of the story. Careful what you wish for.

  12. Heck, BLACK history MONTH is coming up, so I guess they’ll have to teach how MLK jr helped Patton in North Africa and FINALLY subdued “the fox”
    Even Malcolm X wasn’t this radicalized..
