Well, That Didn’t Take Long

Posted on | November 10, 2015 | 61 Comments

A totalitarian professor is in big trouble:

Melissa Click, an assistant professor of mass media at the University of Missouri, ordered a journalist to leave an area where demonstrators had gathered on the Missouri campus.
She then called activists to “muscle” the Asian journalist off campus!
Today the Mizzou journalism faculty voted to revoke the appointment of activist professor Melissa Click.
The Columbia Missourian reported:

Faculty in the Missouri School of Journalism were voting Tuesday to revoke a courtesy appointment for Melissa Click, an assistant professor in MU’s Department of Communication.
The journalism school’s Executive Committee, including Dean David Kurpius, met Tuesday morning to discuss the vote and prepare a statement on Click’s actions Monday as seen in footage of a confrontation between freelance photographer Tim Tai and protesters near the Concerned Student 1950 camp on the Mel Carnahan Quadrangle.
Click was seen at the end of the video asking for assistance and for “muscle” to remove Mark Schierbecker, who filmed the interaction and uploaded his footage to YouTube.

They may need “muscle” to throw her off campus. Any volunteers?

    You’re confused.

    Speaking the truth isn’t “demeaning others”.

    You’re going to stick with the Higher Truth™ gambit I see.

    Your “truth” is an ego game. Apparently you can’t be bothered to play directly against the people you slur. Which doesn’t say much about your sense of fair play.

    Now since I expect Wombat will be by shortly telling me not to play with the trolls, I think I’ll see about some dinner.

    I speak the truth.

    And I’m not about to stop speaking it.

    Sometimes I just can’t resist the temptation. And since my dinner is going to take a bit, here we go.

    There was a guy I went to high school with. He’s ultra-conservative, last time I heard from him he was an aircraft engineer. He’s also Jewish.

    There was a lady I dated a couple of decades ago. Marvelous woman with the most amazing skin color. Incredibly independent and always her own woman. She demanded to be treated as a woman and not as a “black.”

    Two examples that show how curiously selective your “truth” is. If your “truth” doesn’t apply to everyone in the groups you mention, it’s certainly not “the truth.”

    Exceptions don’t make the rule.

    Gods, what are you doing? Waiting for me to type?

    Exceptions do make the rule when you are talking about universal truths.

    By definition.

    You start talking about “the truth,” and all I have to do is find one exception to break your argument beyond repair.

    There are simple rules upon which civilization depends:

    – Avoid the groyd
    – Never trust a jew

    Violate those at your own peril.

    Certainly not my civilization. And I’m betting not the civilization of most of the people here.

    Which means your “truth” isn’t.

    And now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some roast beef and rice that is tempting my nose.

    She’s only resigned from a part-time gig in the Journalism department. She’s still got a full-time job as a Communications professor.

    Kind of like a courtesy reach around?

    …only at an American University can a person “resign” and remain fully employed at the same place they resigned from.
