U of Mass Nursing Dean FIRED for Claiming 'Everyone's Life Matters' in Email

As anyone who has ever worked in the healthcare profession will tell you, everyone’s life matters.
There are no favored races, ethnicities, socioeconomic groups, classes, religions, creeds, sexes, sexual preferences, or any other factors that divide, unite, or otherwise distinguish us as humans. Everyone gets the same treatment, period. Healthcare is probably the most apolitical profession there is.
But the cowards who run the University of Massachusetts-Lowell’s Solomont School of Nursing apparently don’t think so. Apparently they believe that only ‘black patients matter.’
As the Western Journal reports:
The dean of nursing at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell has been fired just two weeks after she was excoriated on Twitter for an email in which she told nursing students that “everyone’s life matters.”
The furor began after former Dean Leslie Neal-Boylan sent out a mass email on June 2 to members of the Solomont School of Nursing addressing “anti-racism” protests that were beginning then to be tinged with violence and rioting, according to Campus Reform, which said it was given a copy of the email.
“I am writing to express my concern and condemnation of the recent (and past) acts of violence against people of color. Recent events recall a tragic history of racism and bias that continue to thrive in this country. I despair for our future as a nation if we do not stand up against violence against anyone,” she wrote, according to Campus Reform.
“BLACK LIVES MATTER, but also, EVERYONE’S LIFE MATTERS,” she added. “No one should have to live in fear that they will be targeted for how they look or what they believe.”
Oh, my God, what a racist bigot!! How dare a nursing professor and dean actually say that no matter what, the lives of all people are important.
‘Well, we can’t have that circulating!’ the indoctrinated Leftist outrage mob declared. ‘We must have her scalp or, barring that, her livelihood! She must not be permitted to earn a living because of wrongthink!’
This, on a campus where all lives had better matter to graduates or they ought to find something else to do.
Neal-Boyland’s email was doxed by a Twitter troll who wrote, “An upsetting statement made by the Dean of Nusing at UMass Lowell, including the statement ‘all lives matter’ was uncalled for and shows the narrow minded people in lead positions.”
‘Narrow-minded.’ A nursing instructor and dean who insists that all lives are important is ‘narrow-minded.’ Not the little Hitler wannabe who wrote the tweet. Unreal.
That said, Neal-Boyland didn’t simply whimper off into the night. She blasted Provost Julie Nash for her cowardly decision not to give the courtesy of an exit interview.
“It is important to point out that no one ever gave me an opportunity to share my views of how the college and school were interacting nor explain myself regarding the BLM email,” she wrote, the Western Journal noted.
“My meeting with you, [Dean] Shortie [McKinney], and Lauren Turner was clearly not intended to give me an opportunity to defend my actions. I was condemned without trial.”
He said her firing was “attributable to one phrase in my initial email that otherwise was very clearly a message to NOT discriminate against anyone.”
Understand that the Left’s objective here isn’t to debate the merits of their position but rather to bully everyone who is ‘non-compliant’ into silence.
And they call Trump a fascist.
