During a day of anti-white protests, students at Evergreen College in Olympia Washington demanded white teachers not teach. Professor Bret Weinstein stood up to them, explaining that people should not be judged by the color of their skin. That led to the students labeling him a racist and chasing him off campus with threats and bullying.
Professor Bret Weinstein, a Progressive, spoke out on the Tucker Carlson show. As a result of that in part, some of the faculty say he provoked “white supremacist backlash” and they want him punished.
In other words, professors have to take whatever abuse is dealt out in the name of social justice and they must remain silent in the face of it. Being Progressive is not going to protect a professor and when the mob comes for the professor, many administrators and teachers will side with the mob. If violence takes place, the mob will justify it as the right thing to do.
Check out a couple clips.
College Fix reported that the professor was driven off campus to teach his classes because campus police couldn’t protect him after they were told to stand down by the college president.
The white biology professor is now being condemned by 50 professors at the public college, representing a quarter of the faculty. They wrote a letter saying they were “angry and frustrated and concerned” by the backlash against students and the university.
The students are idiotic thugs but the professors demand the victim be punished.
Punish the Victim
Just the same, the professor’s colleagues want him punished for standing up to the students who cornered him and called him racist – unjustifiably. Instead of blaming the culprits, the entitled students, they are blaming the victim, Professor Weinstein.
They wrote that Weinstein has endangered faculty, staff, and students, making them targets of white supremacist backlash by promulgating misinformation in public emails, on national television, in news outlets, and on social media.
The videos tell the story. He’s not promulgating misinformation, he’s underplaying it.
The statement was circulated by Julie Russo, whose expertise is “media studies, gender & women’s studies, sexuality and queer studies,” and Elizabeth Williamson, whose expertise is English literature and theater studies, according to a Friday listserv email from Russo obtained by The College Fix.
They also demand Bridges fulfill the racial demands of students who wouldn’t even let him urinate in private.
