Jay Schalin is my Hero! Jay is a columnist / troublemaker / hired gun for “one of those innumerable shadowy cabals run by evil puppet master – Eeeevil Art Pope”. The specific shadowy Pope cabal Jay toils for is The John William Pope Center For Higher Education Policy. Jay is also a very fine hail fellow well-met…. and general all-around good guy…. AND thorn-in-the-side of radical liberal zealots everywhere.
To the faux intellectual elite and their braindead minion “all those sinister Pope gangs” look alike. Fair enough…. to some Gene Nichol and Bill “Bully” Barber look alike…. hard to tell one pompous gasbag from another pompous gasbag without a program.
Anyhoo, Jay writes about assorted abuses and pratfalls that have come to symbolize “The Flagship” in Chapel Hill. A “Flagship” which apparently exists for the sole purpose of providing a bully pulpit for Gene Nichol to bloviate from.
Here is what Gene Nichol then said about Jay…. and why Jay Schalin is My Hero.
John Locke Foundation
If you couldn’t guess already—the UNC law professor and head of the new N.C. Poverty Research Fund don’t like it:
“The decision to hamper Greensboro voters’ ability to alter the structures of local government without permission, in a way not forced upon others, does present a significant equal protection question under the 14th Amendment,” Nichol said Thursday.
Nichol, a former dean of the UNC and University of Colorado law schools, is an expert in constitutional law and federal court procedures and jurisdiction.
“Regardless of whether a state is a home rule state, it is not free to violate the equal protection clause,” Nichol said. “The Supreme Court has paid attention to unique electoral or regulatory burdens in the past.”
Nichol —he also don’t like the John Locke Foundation or the J.W. Pope Center, especially after the Pope Center’s Jay Schalin called into question the ethics and legality of Nichol’s move to reopen the Center for Poverty, Work, and Opportunity “>under a new name.
Nichol didn’t want to comment on the Pope Center’s criticism other than to say he would’t comment on claims from yet one more ridiculous ass at the (John) Locke outfit.”
