Intolerance on today's college campuses

Left eats left.

 

snip-

The Yale University student who screamed at Nicholas Christakis—former master of Yale's Silliman College—wasn't alone, according to several other videos of the incident from last fall that were recently publicized.

Indeed, a group of students hounded Christakis, and many of them levelled absurd accusations that he was promoting violence on campus. Others snapped their fingers to express agreement with the several agitated students.

"You have created space for violence," said one student. When Christakis said he disagreed with that statement, she replied, "You can't."

Another student was even less polite. "I am sick looking at you," this student told Christakis. "I am disgusted knowing that you work at Yale University."

As a reminder, Christakis's moral failing—in the students' view—was siding with his wife, who had recently sent an email to students expressing her disagreement with an administrative reminder not to wear offensive or culturally-appropriative Halloween costumes. Students don't need the university telling them how to dress on Halloween, said Erika Christakis

They are just using the free speech Ronnie.  Just like the dump's deplorable supporters who cold cocked the 69 woman who was protesting dump.  Well not the same, didn't read where the students started stoning Christakis.  Did they and it was not reported Ron?

“The video clearly shows that he is being led through the screaming, hostile crowd by his wife because he cannot see well,” Smith explained to Breitbart News. “The video actually shows him stumbling at one point because he couldn’t see the curb.

“It shows [Teeter] come up behind him and reach out her left hand and grab his shoulder. [She] was pulling him back, and he lifted up his right hand to get her off of him, and she fell.”

The video, which is somewhat unclear, shows Campbell stumbling at about 0:35, and shows Teeter following him, then reaching out to him at about 0:55. It does not show the precise moment at which Campbell reacts and Teeter falls.

Smith told Breitbart News that Teeter returned to protesting after the incident, and was later photographed smiling. She added that Teeter showed no visible sign of any injury to her jaw, either in a Facebook picture allegedly posted after the altercation, or in the WLOS interview.

No, the video sucked. 

 

Can say the same thing about people who blindly follow an idiot for one reason.

"Can say the same thing about people who blindly follow an idiot for one reason.'

 

Don't be too hard on yourself, a lot of people followed the Clintons and Obama for reasons that make no sense.
