But what about her rights to free speech, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah



She is a commnications professor! She knows her rights! You cannot do this to her, you fascist pigs, you.

From Fox News (aka Faux Gnus, right?):
The University of Missouri professor who called for “some muscle” to toss a reporter out of a demonstration on public property could be the one who gets bounced, after state lawmakers on Monday demanded that she be fired.
Communications Professor Melissa Click made national news in November, when she tried to have a student reporter on assignment for ESPN thrown off the quad during a racially charged protest.
“Who wants to help me get this reporter out of here?” Click yelled out after reporter Tim Tai refused to leave in an incident caught on video. “I need some muscle over here.”
And there is this:
Now, more than 100 House Republicans and 18 Senate members from the state Legislature have signed a letter to the school’s board of curators demanding Click’s “immediate firing.”
“The fact that, as a professor teaching the communication department and the school of journalism, she displayed such a complete disregard for the First Amendment rights of reporters should be enough to question her competency and aptitude for her job,” reads the letter, penned by Rep. Caleb Jones and Sen. Kurt Schaefer.
The Republicans are right, however. She is a snowflake who needs to meet Mister Reality.

Bad precedent? Politicizing academics? The University of Missouri today is a circus, not a college. No adults are in charge.

  1. A modern day Himmler. Short, squat, personally unloved, likes to be in charge but others have to do the dirty work, violence and intimidation are a means to an end, blithely ignores the human degradation of her actions, has an empty-eyed soulless look.

    Godwin's Law? Sure, but it happens to fit perfectly in this case.

  2. "The Republicans are right, however."
    What do you mean, "however"? Put the period after "right".

  3. No professor has the right to hold onto her job after assaulting a student and then asking for someone else to assault that student.

  4. But what's the poor womyn supposed to do if she gets bounced from her taxpayer-funded sinecure?

    I'm assuming the market for Carrot Top impersonators is rather slim these days.
