UPDATE Nov 11: The swastika poop and KKK were both hoaxes.
A lynching took place in Missouri last week. The victims were the University of Missouri president and the chancellor. It was the result of one post-graduate student who decided the people who ran the schol were white offended him.
Missouri’s Lesson: the Campus Wars Are about Power, Not Justice
Earlier this morning, Tim Wolfe, the president of the University of Missouri system, abruptly resigned. Why? The popular narrative is that his “inadequate” response to a series of racist incidents on campus triggered a massive student backlash, including an unprecedented “strike” by the university’s football team, and he finally caved to the pressure. Yet this explanation collapses under the slightest scrutiny. The idea that Wolfe presided over a racially insensitive educational empire is a sad joke. A timeline of racial outrages in Columbia is sparse indeed, showing two allegations of racial name-calling (on a campus with 35,000 students) and one disturbing incident in which a swastika was drawn on a dorm wall with human waste.
I SPOKE BRIEFLY WITH MY FRIEND WILLIE THIS MORNING. HE’S CONVINCED RACISM WAS RUNNING AMOK ON CAMPUS AND THE PROTESTERS DESERVED THE SCALPS THEY COLLECTED.
Mizzou Football Players Join Hunger Strike over Supposed Racism on Campus
THE END CAME WHEN THE FOOTBALL TEAM, MOST OF THEM ON ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIPS AND OBVIOUSLY NOT A MODICUM OF INTELLIGENCE AMONG THEM, DECIDED THEY WEREN’T GOING TO PRACTICE OR PLAY UNTIL THE WHITE DEVILS WERE DISPATCHED. COLLEGE FOOTBALL IS THE CASH COW FOR MOST MAJOR UNIVERSITIES.
TELL ME THE ABOVE-PICTURED SNOWFLAKES ARE ALL ON ACADEMIC (COUGH…AFFIRMATIVE ACTION…COUGH) SCHOLARSHIPS
Over the weekend, 32 African-American members of the University of Missouri-Columbia football team joined a group of students staging a hunger strike to protest purported acts of racism on campus.
The team members vowed to boycott all practices, games, and team activities unless and until university President Tim Wolfe resigns from office.
The protests had begun earlier this month, launched by a grad student named Jonathan Butler who claimed that three acts of racism spurred his campaign.
Missouri situation shows power of sports to bring enormous change
But what brought it to a nationwide boil?
A 4-5 football team.
When the Missouri Tigers announced over the weekend that they would not practice, would not lift weights, would not watch film and will not play a game until Wolfe resigned, this exploded into a hot-button national story. National news organizations flocked to campus and set up shop, with live shots against a backdrop of a protestor tent city next to the school’s iconic columns. Not ideal optics for the school president to contend with.
Figures. Top Mizzou Campus Protest Leader and Social Justice Warrior Is Democrat McCaskill’s Intern
The protesters are upset someone smeared a swastika in feces in a residence hall. They claim they are persecuted on campus.
The social justice warriors also held a protest this weekend in the Plaza 900 Dining Hall during recruiting day on campus.
The protesters interrupted the tours and started screaming in the dining hall.
The protest leader and social justice warrior Anurag Ram Chandran is a Claire McCaskill intern.
These protests ALWAYS lead to a Democrat’s office.
Missouri President Tim Wolfe Just Plain Wimped Out
But, he’s apparently a heterosexual white male, and that makes him responsible for the acts of other people who are not under his authority, and thus he had to go! Considering that he was unwilling to fight for his position, perhaps he really should have resigned.
Nevertheless, this incident shows just how poorly American colleges are preparing students for the real world. Payton Head, the Student Government president who had been called the horrible “n” word, will eventually be graduated and have to leave Mizzou to begin a career in the business world, and there won’t be any university president to blame when the next red pickup drives past and someone yells offensive stuff to him. He’ll have to just man up and get on with his life. When he finds himself competing with other people to move up the corporate ladder, to get that next promotion, if he is unable to simply disregard insults, if he gets all flustered and upset, he won’t be able to compete to the best of his ability, and he will fall behind.
Video: Professor At University Of Missouri Orders Students To Block And Harass Campus Newspaper Reporter “You Don’t Have A Right To Take Our Photos”
Tim Tai is my new hero. Good for him for standing up to this mob, for the right of real journalism. Does anybody have flashbacks to the cultural revolution in China? This is scary stuff to shout down with a mob.

IS IT JUST ME, OR DOES IT SEEM THAT SINCE THE MESSIAH WAS IMMACULATED THE HOMEYS ARE GETTING EVEN MORE RUDE, OBNOXIOUS, OVERBEARING AND VIOLENT THAN THEY WERE BEFORE?
