UNCG Continues Threats And Intimidation

When staff investigator Jackie Billeci first sent me the e-mail that broke the story of the UNCG 3, UNCG Using Threats And Intimidation Against Employees on September 29, 2014, Jackie, myself and others were already well aware of what had long been going on at UNCG.

Jackie, herself a former UNCG victim and others had made me aware of the situation months before but none were in a position that allowed them to go public just yet. The letter by Betsi Robinson, Debbie Schallock and Andrea Spencer was the opening we'd been months looking for.
Jackie titled her e-mail to me, "UNCG IS Blowing Up!" It took all of 5 minutes from the time I read the letter until I posted it online. It just so happens that Margaret Moffett of the News & Record along with almost every other journalist in this city reads every word posted to this website and when she saw her long time friend and former co-worker Betsi Robinson was one of the letter writers...

The next day Lyda Carpen, David Wilson and Chris English were folk heroes. And rightfully so.

But sadly as this next e-mail you're about to read points out, nothing has changed for the better:

"Scared vs Sinful Employees...

 I received an email tonight from a current UNCG employee who was invited to "Like" a page, but due to the lack of Due Process and bullying in his own office, he is afraid if he were to Like the page, he may lose his job or reprimanded.  I removed his name, and the people he contacted, because I would not want this to get back around that he said these things.

Based on the little bit of what I read on the new website Sophie put together (, I will say she is doing her research...  I believe I told both of you at least a month ago if not longer that Sherri MacCheyne is playing a bigger role in this whole situation than the public realizes...

Subject: Please - Like this page (for those who can't)

I am asking those of you who can, please head over to the new page Sophie setup and "Like" it

There are some of us out there that the possibility of "Liking" certain posts or pages can cause a great deal of harm, while there are others who have more flexibly.  

I just came across her website also, and it's pretty good...

Friends - this is in support of the UNCG 3 who were wrongfully fired, and had felony charges brought to them.  As an UNCG Graduate, I continue to feel ashamed by what has happened on campus, and to 3 great people who were fired.  Selfishly though, I am even more afraid this same thing could happen to others on campus (including myself) and I feel that UNCG is going down a bad, bad road.  Please take just a moment to Like the above page.

Sadly most of the faculaty at UNCG has rolled over on staff believing that as long as faculty is safe there is nothing to fear. Therefore the Fascist takeover of UNCG continues unabated.
"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."
-- Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the cowardice of intellectuals

Continue believing your abandonment of staff will keep you safe and see where it gets you. Like I've written many times before, at we don't blog the news we make the news happen.
