Here’s a shocking video showing a university professor threatening to use “muscle” to remove a student from a public area. Before that another student reporter is pushed and told he can’t be in a public area. He’s physically pushed out of the public area by a mob of protesters. Please watch this video. It says a lot about the mindset of many “liberal” young people in universities and the professors who teach them.
Where do we even begin with this one? Some background: Reports of a poop swastika led to students protesting discriminatory acts. One kid, Jonathan Butler, went on a hunger strike until the university president resigned. His claim: The president didn’t do enough to prevent discrimination at the university against black students.
The poop swastika is a likely hoax. The discriminatory event triggering the protests probably never happened. For those familiar with terms from intelligence work, this is called a false flag attack. It’s a fabricated event designed to create public outrage to anger citizens so that they can be manipulated into aggression to serve a political agenda.
The black players from the college football team vowed not to play until the president resigned. The president resigned. Football must go on! After 5 days, student reporters wanted to interview Butler and other protesters. Melissa Click, professor of communication who was one of the protesters, invited reporters to cover the event. She’s the one at the end saying “you have to leave” and calling for “muscle.”
When student reporters showed up, they were told they couldn’t be there. The protesters said they created a “safe space” in which no non-protesters were allowed. They posted signs saying the area was off limits to the media. This “safe space” was on public property where anybody had a right to be.
Click earns $58,000 a year as a professor of communication and her big contribution to scholarship is a paper about the tweets of Lady Gaga. I’m not making this up. Really. I’m not. She holds a Graduate Certificate in Advanced Feminist Studies.
It’s ironic: When the going gets tough (somebody is just standing there exercising his constitutional rights and not doing what you want!) a feminist needs to call for help from bigger guys! Isn’t the whole point of feminism to reduce the role of overly-aggressive-male-associated behavior? Guess not. My bad.
Click was off on a power trip. Given the chance, she behaved like any two-bit despot. She loved barking orders to her minions. She felt she had the right to use force to deny others their legitimate rights. She liked strutting around behind her troops. Her justification: her cause.
“The reason every Marxist government in the history of the world turned massively repressive is not because they all had the misfortune of being hijacked by murderous thugs. It’s that the ideology itself prioritizes class justice over individual rights and makes no allowance for legitimate disagreement.
…American political correctness has obviously never perpetrated the brutality of a communist government, but it has also never acquired the powers that come with full control of the machinery of the state. ”
The behavior of these students is at the same time pathetic and preposterous. They push themselves into the face of a student reporter and then shout at him that he’s violating their space.
“I see the most vivid example yet of activists twisting the concept of “safe space” in a most confounding way. They have one lone student surrounded. They’re forcibly preventing him from exercising a civil right. At various points, they intimidate him. Ultimately, they physically push him. But all the while, they are operating on the premise, or carrying on the pretense, that he is making them unsafe.”
The main lesson from this is that no matter how much a group talks about “rights,” it is often their rights they care about. Not the rights of those unlike them. This is why I’m a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. It’s an individual right which recognizes every person’s God given right to defend himself against the aggression of others.
People who support gun control think differently. They want to create a “safe space” country where nobody has the armament to defend themselves against rule of the mob. They think your ability to defend yourself is an inherent threat to them. They argue we don’t need guns because society will protect us all. Seeing the video, I’m not reassured.
While I support legitimate protest and hate real discrimination, quite frankly I have no respect for punks like this. I’ll write more about this in Part II. I’ll write about the new concept of “MicroAggression” and “Safe Spaces.”
