LET THIS BE A LESSON TO COLLEGE CAMPUSES ACROSS AMERICA …
Remember the politically-correct meltdown that shut down the University of Missouri last fall? Yeah … it was absolutely ridiculous.
Now it’s having serious, long-term consequences on the school …
“I am writing to you today to confirm that we project a very significant budget shortfall due to an unexpected sharp decline in first-year enrollments and student retention this coming fall,” the school’s interim chancellor Hank Foley wrote last week in a memo to his colleagues.
How significant? How sharp?
Mizzou has lost a whopping 1,500 students … the equivalent of 25 percent of its incoming freshman class. That’s created a gaping $32 million hole in the school’s budget, necessitating a hiring freeze, a five percent budget cut to all departments and an unplanned raid of the government-run school’s reserve funds.
Let this be a lesson to college campuses all across America.
To hear the far left tell it, hatred spawned by the 2014 Ferguson race riots somehow infected the Missouri campus last year. In response to this “systematic oppression,” a black graduate student named Jonathan Butler launched a hunger strike – which received the support of the school’s football team.
All hell then broke loose … resulting in the resignation of the school’s chancellor, Timothy Wolfe.
Will Mizzou be bailed out by its state benefactors? Hell no …
In fact Missouri’s legislature appears likely to freeze or even cut the school’s funding in the aftermath of last fall’s unrest – which saw many of the school’s left-leaning faculty join in the protests. Hell, one faculty member – Melissa Click – obstructed media and assaulted a student during the rioting.
Click was finally fired last week for her actions – which included blocking a student journalist working for ESPN from setting foot on public property and threatening to bring in some student “muscle” to keep him out.
Here’s just some of the insanity (Click’s “muscle” comment is included at the tail end of the clip) …

We’re not condoning racism. As we said at the time of these demonstrations, racism is “abhorrent,” and those who practice it should be held accountable when their actions cross the line. Having said that, we stand by our belief that “went down at Missouri … was a politically correct lynching, a triumph of irrational outrage.”
Now Mizzou is paying the price for that “triumph.”
Bizarre (yet typical) right wing nut job, thinking.
Missing from this rant? Zero mention of the white, COMMUNICATIONS professor who was thuggishly calling for “some muscle” to oust a reporter. Took the University several months to get around to firing her. Yes, delayed actions, have consequences too.
The professor in question was a hardcore left wing nut job though….despite the fact she was white.
No. LWNJs don’t try to have people arrested.
I really don’t think you’re right on this one, let’s look at her CV:
” Her work in this area is guided by audience studies, theories of gender and sexuality, and media literacy. Current research projects involve 50 Shades of Grey readers, the impact of social media in fans’ relationship with Lady Gaga, masculinity and male fans, messages about class and food in reality television programming, and messages about work in children’s television programs.”
You really don’t think she’s a LWNJ still?
Oh so if sex is the measurement, then she’s definitely Republican. Liberals just have a lot of sex without much bother. But the South? The South is big into porn.
And God. Apparently in that order.
lol….it’s the whole “theory of gender and sexuality” thing that tells me that she leans in that direction.
Not withstanding that there are a lot of “in the closet” Republican men it seems at times, but just sayin’.
Being that this reporter was apparently of Asian descent and the majority of these bastards, bitches, and whores, were white; it looks as if they were being “racist” to him.
That reporter kept his cool, was well mannered, and acted like a professional. If he decides to become a national news reporter this video should be part of his resume. Best wishes to you, fella’..!!
You got that 100% right, Shifty!!!! I do confess that I would have totally enjoyed watching him go Bruce Lee (or Billy Jack, if trying to avoid the positive racial stereotype) and delivered a series of roundhouse and spinning back kicks that would have left all of his tormentors for several yards laying on the ground.
I love it! —– PS: My Cousin Judge, birth name of William Jackson, was called Billy Jack until the movie came out. He got too much ribbing so he cut that out.
That might have been a great icebreaker for meeting/picking up chicks!
“How’d you like to tell your girlfriends that you spent the night with Billy Jack?”
HA! You’re on a roll today! I’ll ask him about that when I talk to him again.
no chicken for you . that’ll thin out the herd
“Remember the politically-correct meltdown that shut down the University of Missouri last fall?”
Yes, and the University authorities ceded control of the institution to a group of far left little turds that were hell bent on changing the university for the better. The “better” being a set of “politically correct” mandates so absurd that it became almost impossible to educate these young brats.
Now, the University is suffering from a slow demise by the monster they helped create.
Coming soon to an institution of higher learning near you. This plague spreads faster than a case of the clap at the local whorehouse.
Yes. I hope this is a lesson to other university leaders.
You would hope so, but it seems doubtful. Most universities are so far left that this may seem to be a good idea.
Maybe in other states, not in this one. The most prominent building on the Clemson campus is named after a murdering racist, and the College of Charleston essentially staged a coup to get its current president, a Civil War fanatic, installed as president.
Are you bragging or complaining ? This falls under ; all’s well that ends well. IMO.
Tillman was probably one of your kin. Marrying cousins has its problems.
You are dealing with an intellectual low-life.
I did not realize that when I first responded to him, her, it?
He is a waste of time.
Better than being a waste of life.
Hey! LOOK! There’s the remains of a Confederate soldier under that rock, over there.
Don’t think that the administrations of most universities in SC are not as liberal as the day is long.
Conservatism and common sense has a shelf life of about two seconds in most SC colleges and universities.
Please, don’t use the terms “conservatism” and “common sense” in the same sentence. The Republican party is being taken over by a Mussolini wanna be. He stirs up the most ignorant people in society with his idiotic speeches, and those people then believe they are somehow empowered. Looking forward to them fading into the background.
It’s better than voting for a criminal.
You might she she is not yet one, just wait.
Don’t worry those 1,500 students will get loads of student debt at a different college and have a future just as dismal. God bless America’s system of higher education, because it needs all the help it can get.
“This education brought to you by Goldman Sachs and the politicians guaranteeing their student loans”
Those “students” were acting like a bunch of nut sachs!
Looks like they need to make Butler the school’s Chancellor and the football team the Board of Trustees
That ought to bring thousands and thousands of more ittle pieces of shit like them to Mizzou
Now think for a minute…. Imagine if the citizen video of Walter Scott’s shooting had not been taken, the families of the Mother Emanuel had responded with protest or the Governor and General Assembly had not responded by promptly taking down the battle flag. Imagine the difficulties of Missouri and Baltimore, duplicated in Charleston and throughout South Carolina.
We suffered a much bigger blow than either of those places, yet our response was infinitely superior.
Correlation does not always equal causation, but it does make for great headlines.
Welcome to the real world Mizzou. You’re average SAT will drop bc the smart kids will go elsewhere. Good luck recruiting top-notch professors too. The football coach allowing his team to go on strike bc of some emo kid threatening to starve himself to death! The football coach, the chancellor and the apparently the entire Board of Trustees – ALL LIMP DISHRAGS.
Does Mizzou use Peoplesoft software to calculate their budgets?
Screw em’. Close the place down and let those pointed headed liberals go find a real job.
