I first saw the video above on a conservative channel, and I was thinking to myself that surely the conservative proprietor had left something out of the story. I mean, really. The story, according to the conservative proprietor was that at Evergreen State, every year Black students take a day off where they go off campus to discuss race-related stuff, and that this has been a tradition from the 1970’s which is respected by both students and teachers. This year, instead of doing that, a group of Black students asked all the White students and teachers to leave for a day instead. As with anything from Black Lives Matter activists these days, the “suggestion” had a bit of teeth behind it–“We’re politely asking you to leave, but if you don’t…” When a White biology teacher calmly and logically explained in an e-mail that this is wrong, the students began the name-calling, began calling for his resignation, shouting at the dean, cursing and talking over a White female teacher, and crybullying to a level that we’ve never seen. It was worse than Shrieking Girl. I was certain that the conservative content creator had left something out. It turned out he didn’t. (Curiously enough, most of the mainstream media have not promoted this story. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s so bizarre that it doesn’t look real, or that Trump has once again outdone BLM in the race for bizarre behavior.)
This has gotten out of hand. In response to this disrespectful, sophomoric, wasteful, and nonsensical childish outburst from Black Lives Matter at Evergreen State, Frank Bruni of the NY Times spoke out out. Last week, Fareed Zakaria spoke out against liberal intolerance in general. The amount of hate and intolerance coming from the liberal left is simply astounding.
From all appearances, it looks like the Evergreen State administration bent over and kowtowed to these crybullies. The biology teacher was told by campus cops that they couldn’t guarantee his safety. The president of the school praised the thugs for being “courageous.” The admins shut the school down for two days (and now a third). They sent out a list of the demands to which they had acquiesced.
Black Lives Matter is a deeply misguided organization. (edited after King’s suggestions below)They called for dead cops, and they got that. They wrecked Darren Wilson’s life (which was based on the Michael Brown lie that they didn’t know was a lie at the time), and they’ve never atoned for it. They destroyed the life of a good cop. I can’t really say that they’re a terrorist organization because violence isn’t the PRIMARY means (and perhaps not even a major strategy) through which they achieve their goals, but violence is almost looming behind their threats and actions, and they do almost nothing to calm people over the implied and sometimes explicit threats of violence. Now they’ve got the power to shut down a school over racist incidents that they themselves are instigating. These students, from the video, clearly have no interest in learning. They have no interest in respectful dialogue. They have no interest in being productive members of society. They’re only there to learn how to take from Whitey and Chang by crying about their so-called victimization. I can’t help but think that there are many kids who paid for their education and are looking to graduate but now find themselves at the To these crybullies. It’s especially sad, given that Evergreen State is funded by public education funds. People from Washington are paying for this nonsense. I’m sure if we looked hard at the federal dollars, we’re also probably paying for it.
It has to stop. I can’t tell what the rest of the world is feeling, but I’m fed up with it. If Fareed Zakaria and Frank Bruni are also fed up with it, I can’t help but think that we’re not the only ones.
