Angela Davis, UCLA’s Patron Saint

Over at PJ Media, Ron Radosh reveals that a banner on UCLA’s campus promotes Angela Davis, the radical activist and former UCLA professor from 1969-1970. The banner includes an old image of Davis—presumably taken during her time at UCLA—with the words “WE QUESTION” underneath. As Radosh notes, the ad, which is supposed to boost UCLA student pride, is cruelly ironic.

She is, in his words, a “thoughtless propagandist for every far Left cause one can imagine.”
