    The racial agitating of political thugs and bullies at Yale and Missouri, and to a lesser degree other universities around the country, under the guise of "political correctness," has advanced to the stage of students dictating policy to the administrations and teachers of these campuses, blatantly denying freedom of speech and the press to students on those campuses, in some cases by physical intimidation and duress.

    The appeasement policies of the "leadership" of these universities is yielding the result that appeasement always does, which is to enable and encourage more of the conduct that you fear and are trying to avoid. So, this is getting rapidly worse, as it will continue to do until the state and local government leaders, and the university administrators realize that the "political correctness" agenda is a monster which has gotten completely out of control - it was intended as a tool OF partisan control - and which is clearly too powerful for them to manage in a civil and responsible way. They must take steps to re-establish equal and reasonable protections for everyone, without special preference, especially professors and people in positions of authority here to expect a modi$#@! of respect from these students if they want to attend these universities in order to correct this awful situation. Unfortunately, that is not appear to be likely to happen any time soon.

    Heather MacDonald and Thomas Smith have written an excellent article which concisely evaluates the situation that has developed around this. It is profoundly bad and dangerous, not only for our nation's universities, but for our society as a whole. Especially see the Yale video of a student literally shrieking at a Yale administrator if you want to see how out of control and bad this has become, which is also linked below:

    And here is another video of a student - a member of the press - being bullied and intimidated in an effort to deprive him of his first amendment rights at the University of Missouri.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRlRAyulN4o

    Apparently students at the University of Missouri are regulated by a student mob in lieu of the university police, and cannot expect to have their basic rights protected, much less respected. Expect this to expand soon to a university near you.

    Have things degraded to this level at the University of Texas at Austin yet? Anyone want to speculate on how long it will take for this new social authority construct to be established on the forty acres?

    The professor is about to have their courtesy appointment revoked for her actions. So not sure what you have to complain about in this case.

    If you want to know what's going on, just watch South Park.

    South Park is a less extreme version of what is happening though.

    Link?

    Also, the professor was not the only one participating in this outrageous display. Clearly the rest of these thugs and bullies should be disciplined by the university as well. But we all know that is not very likely to happen.

    The only real takeaway I've had from this is another arrow in my quiver or arguments against big-time college sports. Missouri would have never been vulnerable if they didn't put so much value in their football program in the first place. As for college communities, if they made it through the '60s, they can make it through this too. I'm not too worried for them. Hopefully, they are better for it. If it's a mistake, it'll eventually extinguish itself. The chancellor and president are already very well-to-do, I'm sure, and will land on their feet. What does it matter if they get swapped out for someone else?

    Thugs and bullies. LOL. You mean students that choose to protest? Hasn't this been going on at college campuses for decades? Cali schools are laughing.

    The Yale video was cringe worthy. So much ignorance, lack of logic and lack of manners.

    Watch the videos and see for yourself. You might learn something, if you can gather the courage to peak your head out of your "safe space" for as long as it takes to view them.

    Stopped taking OP seriously a while ago; but the second clip at Mizzou seems a little problematic: a student paper at a public school should have (and make use of) universal access to any campus assembly or activity, especially one I'm guessing was advertised in the school paper.

    It was beyond outrageous. She was literally shrieking at him.

    She should at a minimum be suspended for the rest of this semester for that, with her receiving an incomplete for all her classes this term. She should also be warned that if she behaves inappropriately towards a member of the Yale staff again, she will be expelled on the spot. That should include the disciplinary meeting where she receives this punishment - If she mouths off during her that meeting, she should get the boot right then.

    Tangential a point as this probably is, they worked considerably hard to get where they were, their presumed wealth should not be a factor in gauging the legitimacy or fairness of their dismissal. That steers very near to class bias, which is just as unfair or irrational in either direction.

    Yeah, that Yale letter was probably the most inoffensive, respectful, carefully written "counter point" in history. Hard to believe someone, much less liberal college students at an elite university, would get so upset about it. Excerpts below:

    They see worse things on any weekends, intra-term holidays or in the run up to big rivalry games. I assume you went to Rice based on some of the other fake profiles you've been linked to, but this is a ridiculous comment through and through.
