The Social Justice Warriors now rule at the University of Missouri — to the point that they’re bullying the press and ordering the campus police around.
A viral video shows MU protesters blocking a student journalist from taking photographs — as the radicals declare their tent city (on school grounds) to be a “safe space.”
The crowd uses their bodies to move the photographer away. Then Melissa Click — an MU professor — goes after the videographer, declaring, “Who wants to help me get this reporter out of here? I need some muscle over here.”
The outrage prompted radical leaders to tell the troops on Tuesday that media are “allowed” on campus. Click even apologized.
That’s still some progress, as was the start of faculty voting to revoke Click’s affiliation with the Journalism Department — though not her Communications Department post.
On the other hand, campus police on Tuesday e-mailed the student body urging kids to report incidents of “hateful and/or hurtful speech or actions.”
The quest for “safe spaces” is starting to look a lot like fascism.
All this, after all, follows the forced resignation of the school’s president and chancellor — for acting too deliberately to a series of alleged racial incidents.
Yes, it was the strike threat from African-American members of Missouri’s football team that left the prez little choice. A forfeit of this week’s game against BYU would’ve cost MU a cool $1 million.
