Clickbait

Clickbait

Seriously, click.

WAJ video screenshot, okay to use

Earlier today I asked Kemberlee if we were all Melissa-Clicked out.

She said we were. I disagree.

The most famous redheaded muscle prof in the world is the blog post gift that keeps on giving.

Slow news day? Click.

Scrambling to fill blog post time slot? Click.

Want people to click? Click.

The latest screaming clickbait (actually, it’s double clickbait because if you are seeing this near the top of the homepage, you have to Click a second time to see what the story is about — see what I did there?):

From the Chronicle of Higher Ed, Being Melissa Click:

Last fall, as Melissa Click yelled and pointed her way into infamy, she quickly became a caricature of a radical faculty member who represented everything conservative lawmakers and pundits hate about academe, right down to her research on Twilight.

But while the video of her screaming at a student went viral, turning her into the Melissa Click, the confrontation on a quad during a protest here last year really wasn’t that remarkable, in her mind. The assistant professor of communication at the University of Missouri was just doing what other professors and administrators were doing there, too, she says. So why did she lose her job?

She has one idea. Under pressure from state legislators, she says, Missouri’s Board of Curators fired her to send a message that the university and the state wouldn’t tolerate black people standing up to white people. “This is all about racial politics,” she says. “I’m a white lady. I’m an easy target.”

Melissa, click, don’t ever stop being you.

Unexpectedly, This tool/fool has discovered that actions have consequences. Too bad she will never realize this. Someone will hire her for too much money and she will continue as a martyr for the left.

Ahhh, beautiful.

Hopefully the public shaming, firing and incessant mockery of this moonbat can become a playbook for dealing with the prog scum that are attempting to hijack our society.

Gee, sure hope she isn’t thinking of breeding.

“I’m a white lady. I’m an easy target.”

Oh, dear. White privilege demands its own safe space.

    “I’m a white lady.”

    Uh, no. White, yes. Certainly not the latter.

    But, sadly, she’s more right than wrong. Today being black/HIspanic/Asian/SOME-damn-identity group gives you privileges that are purely racist.

      Valerie in reply to Ragspierre. | April 25, 2016 at 9:15 pm

      I’d leave Asian off the list, unless you are talking about Muslim “Asian.”

      Here in California, Asian students get points deducted from their SAT score when the state system is considering college applications.

      Whites are neutral, hispanics get points added, and blacks get more points added.

      To the SAT scores.

        Asians in CA, particularly the college idiocy drones, have also started to cry about their grievances recently, too.

    We’ll know she’s getting desperate when she proclaims, “It’s Boooooosh’s fault.”

Ummm… a professor of communications is lamenting that she’s “misunderstood.” Right.

I noticed that she was counting on her “white privilege” to protect her in her Sacred Quest to … to … to do something vague—but terribly useful—in support of the rather inchoate demands of some students of black persuasion. And is peeved that her plan didn’t work. Oh, the humanity!

I wouldn’t want to base a conclusion on such ephemeral dross as an article in Chronicle of Higher Education, but I’m left with an impression that Dr Click is simply untrainable. The very first step in education—including the continuing education which we call life—is to realize that you don’t already know it all, that your technique may be non-optimal, that your prejudices interfere with your perceptions. Click’s rejection of such concepts, at least in so far as they might apply to her, seems adamantine. Not that that’s unusual; but it reflects poorly on what is considered an academic nowadays.

The spawn of Ward Churchill.

Rachissa Clickezal…they’ve merged into one entity in order to compensate for each other’s brain deficiencies.

I think that MC is simply trying to use standard left wing tactics:
1) The aggressor is the victim.
2) An abstract group (at least somebody) is to be held accountable for the leftist’s obnoxious behavior that was, after all, attempting to right some vague injustice.

I think this is a display of attempted Liberal Privilege where
1) The status of victim-hood is supposed to be a suit of armor.
2) The adult concept of accountability is viewed from the eyes of a child and seen as an unjustified attack by “White Privilege” or some other vague group.

MC is a psychological mess who fits in well with the leftist SJWs. She will not change her “thinking” until she becomes an adult.

I hear Amazon is trying to recruit her. You know, for their 1-Click ordering dept.

“I’m a white lady. I’m an easy target.”

That weren’t no lady, it were a fascist banshee.

Oh, this patriarchal rant from the Zman is too good not to post (with apologies to Kemberlee, Leslie, and Fuzzy Slippers): Female Trouble

At the risk of sounding like a neanderthal, Mx. Click should be somewhere doting on grandchildren right now, not out making a nuisance of herself. Instead, the self-defeating religion of feminism guides her into self-destructive behavior that has led to a life of frustration. That frustration comes from pursuing an endless list of causes and movements that can never satisfy the biological urge. Her life is an endless itch that can never be scratched.

We are learning the hard way that Aristophanes was right all along. A society run by women can never work.

(running, ducking, and grinning)

Click is a disgusting piece that believes there should not be consequences for exhibiting negative behaviors. Gee, I wonder how Mizzou’s enrollment numbers are looking? Maybe Bernie’s “Free Sh*t” crowd can get a discount there now.

Bet she’ll land in some cushy “job” in “communications” if the Hildabeast takes the White House.

I only clicked here because a month or so back Professor Jacobson complained that the site was not getting the visitors that it needed to keep the site going. I like the site, so I clicked – even though I doubted that there was anything new here. And I was right.

Holy Mary Mother of God, I so hope she’s not a relative.
