    U. Wisconsin-Milwaukee Student Paper Op-Ed Includes Instructions for Making a Molotov Cocktail

    “I am a staunch supporter of giving people the ability to defend themselves, protect their rights and their ways of life through knowledge and whatever means necessary”

    Listen to this article

    I’ve been covering higher education news for years and I’ve seen some crazy stuff but I am legitimately shocked that the student paper published this.

    Campus Reform reports:

    Student newspaper publishes instructions on how to make a Molotov cocktail

    The student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin -Milwaukee posted an opinion-editorial containing instructions on how to make and use a Molotov cocktail.

    The editor-in-chief of the UWM Post, Adam Kelnhofer, wrote an op-ed on June 14 going over the history of the Molotov cocktail after protests broke out in Milwaukee following the death of George Floyd. The op-ed included instructions on how to “make a Molotov cocktail.”

    After going over the history of Molotov cocktails and how they have been used in protests “against tyrannical governments around the world,” Kelnhofer says that while he does not “condone violence,” he supports individuals protecting themselves through “whatever means necessary.”

    “I am a staunch supporter of giving people the ability to defend themselves, protect their rights and their ways of life through knowledge and whatever means necessary,” Kelnhofer stated.

    Kelnhofer noted that the Milwaukee Police Department claimed that a Molotov cocktail was thrown at officers and commented that there was no evidence of that occurring. While stating that “the police do not have the right to use Molotov cocktails against protestors,” Kelnhofer says that it’s different for protesters, and offers “some of the blunter tools of revolution and the fight against oppressors.”

    “However, if the lives of these beautiful protestors continue to be threatened by a tyrannical government who seemingly does nothing to stop the death threats against black people vital to the Milwaukee community like Nitty and Coleman, I can offer some of the blunter tools of revolution and the fight against oppressors,” Kelnhofer added.

    A Molotov cocktail is not a defensive weapon. It is an offensive weapon of opportunity, either for arson or for anti-personnel use.

    But it can cause death or serious bodily injury, so anyone who is carrying a burning Molotov cocktail is likely to be shot by law enforcement or anyone protecting their lives and property.

    I’m surprised that the police haven’t been shooting more rioters who are preparing to throw these weapons. If I were in a building that someone was targeting with a Molotov cocktail, I would consider that to be a lethal weapon, and respond with lethal force.

    The students at U of Wisconsin are so stupid that they need instructions on how to make a Molotov cocktail?

    I remember some refinements that were recommended in Poor Man’s James Bond or other Delta Press publications [for educational purposes only] (including grinding the glass bottle so it shatters better, and adding laundry soap flakes for the flaming gasoline to adhere better), but the basic concept is pretty damn simple. Do stores in the US still sell laundry soap flakes? Or is that a third world product now?

    Given University admins are not letting kids party, locking them down and/or ripping them off with online instruction, this does not seem wise.

    Who do the kids hate more? i know the riots are organized by the left, but the chance for blowback seems very, very, very high. Karma is a witch.
