Hint: Most students don’t want to go into debt for Rioting 101. From Blake Neff at Daily Caller:
The University of Missouri’s (MU) flagship Columbia campus has officially lost a staggering 23 percent of its freshman class this year, an even worse figure than administrators initially predicted in the wake of major racial strife.
It’s not hard to find the cause of the school’s woes. Last year, the black activist group Concerned Student 1950 launched a major protest effort, claiming the school was a hotbed of racism and demanding the ouster of MU president Thomas Wolfe. After black members of the football team went on strike, their demands were swiftly met. At the same time, professor Melissa Click was caught on camera attacking a student journalist trying to cover the protests, and calling for “muscle” to carry him off if he refused to leave. Though Click was eventually fired, campus officials otherwise focused on trying to placate protesters and meet their demands, but this only spurred follow-up protests. More.
The nation’s largest group of college professors has placed the University of Missouri (MU) on an academic censure list over its decision to fire Melissa Click for attacking a student journalist. The group claims that despite her egregious behavior, Click is also a martyr for academic freedom.
Clearly, Mizzou needs to lose another 2100 frosh before the message gets out: As I explain to people who raise hell with me about my coverage of news:
There are two legal free speech corners north of the Rio Grande, the Dominion of Canada and the United States of America. Their hours of operation are 24/7/365. Get used to their existence or, to reduce needless stress in your life, live somewhere else.
Note to readers: Is your alma mater catering to these shakedowns that reward learned adult helplessness? Then why are you still donating? What do you think will happen when precious little asshats are old enough to influence public policy?
Progressives can force us to contribute through our taxes, but why voluntarily?
Also, if black lives matter, why doesn’t black (or anybody’s) education matter?
