Evergreen State leftist professor stunned as SJWs viciously turn on him

Evergreen State leftist professor stunned as SJWs viciously turn on him

Students take over campus demanding Bret Weinstein’s firing after he objected to racist demands for whites to leave campus

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_j9nFced_eo

On Friday, we published a Quick Take about a professor at Evergreen State College who was confronted by a student mob demanding his resignation. The professor, who considers himself a progressive, didn’t agree with a campus event which would have banned white people from campus for a day.

It turns out the situation at this small school in Washington state is worse than previously known.

According to Professor Bret Weinstein, campus operations have ground to a halt. The students are calling the shots and making demands of the school president who is trying to appease them. Campus police have been rendered powerless to do anything by an order to stand down. The inmates have truly taken over the asylum.

Students demand firing of professor who objected to asking whites to leave campus

Bret Weinstein, a biology professor at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, was surrounded by a group of student protesters Wednesday after he wrote an email objecting to plans for a Day of Absence.

In the past, the Day of Absence has been a day where black and Latino students leave campus to highlight their significance on campus. This year students wanted to change the format. Instead of leaving campus themselves, they wanted white students and professors to leave campus, thereby creating a safe space for the students left behind. Professor Weinstein objected to that format and wrote and email saying he would not be leaving campus and encouraged others not to do so. Here’s his full email:

Here is video of the professor being confronted:

[Update – YouTube took down the widely shared video above based on its “bullying” policy, which makes no sense. Another, longer version is available here, as of 6-5-2017.]

Weinstein was actually forced to leave campus due to safety concerns. KING 5 reports:

Professor told he’s not safe on campus after college protests

As a biology professor for 15 years at Olympia’s The Evergreen State College, Bret Weinstein has seen his share of protests, but he’s never been afraid of being on campus until this week.

“I have been told by the Chief of Police it’s not safe for me to be on campus,” said Weinstein, who held his Thursday class in a downtown Olympia park.

An administrator confirmed the police department advised Weinstein it “might be best to stay off campus for a day or so.”

…when student Marissa Parker, one of the protesters, heard Weinstein was advised to stay off campus, she responded, “If he feels unsafe or frightened for two days, he can only imagine what black and brown bodies have feared for years.”

Weinstein described the events on Tucker Carlson’s show last night. At one point he says, “I’m a deeply progressive person. I’m troubled by what this implies about the current state of the left.”

This report from local news source “The Olympian” has a quote from a student which must be read to be believed:

Students allege racism, protest administrators at The Evergreen State College

Chanting “Hey-hey, ho-ho, these racist teachers have got to go,” hundreds of students filled the third floor of The Evergreen State College’s Library building Wednesday and surrounded president George Bridges’ office.

Students said they were protesting institutional racism at the Olympia liberal arts college.

“It’s important. It’s necessary,” said Halla Warmer, a junior. “It’s life or death for us.”

Those are not the words of someone who is ready for higher education. They are the lunatic ramblings of someone who has been brainwashed by the cult of progressivism.

What these students are doing is dangerous and to make matters worse, they have no idea.

He teaches at Evergreen. He’s spent his entire life working to creat this moment.

I feel bad for him the way I feel bad about the way Robespierre ended up on the guillotine.

    I read this quote: At one point he says, “I’m a deeply progressive person. I’m troubled by what this implies about the current state of the left.”

    …and the first thing I thought of was Frankenstein’s monster.

    You hit the nail on the head. He personifies, literally, the reason these weak-minded, deeply indoctrinated fascists are what they are.

      Here is a “progressive” college professor who advocates a tribal society where all tribes are united in seeing his tribe as THE enemy. For starters. It won’t stop there. It’s called multiculturalism.

      Welcome back to Planet Earth professor. Maybe now you understand a very important law of survival that has been forgotten: in a world of hostile tribes, it is critical to remember which tribe you belong to. Your enemies don’t care how you self-identify and being a traitor to your tribe doesn’t win you respect anywhere. Wishing doesn’t make it so.

If even one dollar of Federal money is used to fund this school, how about turning off the spigot?

From US News ‘Best Colleges’- the place accepts 98% of applicants (and considers themselves selective), over 65% are white. After freshman year, 30% of them leave. They have a 4 year graduation rate of 41%.

“Minority” enrollment is considered classified information on their website, but student age is interesting, although the vast majority of college students are between 18-22, this place has only 49% ‘students’ of college age, with over 1500 of them over age 25, 700 over age 35, as undergraduates!

So, an institution pretty much built for snowflakes, who have completed 12-15 years of far-left indoctrination (formerly known as public school), it seems to attract permanent students and accepts pretty much anybody. Why bother?

It’s over a thousand forested acres in a pretty part of the State; demolish the buildings and let the citizens have a park instead. It’d be a better value to us all.

    Federally backed student loans and grants are supporting this and every other college. And that college president is scared to death to start expelling students because of what it will do to his bottom line.

College administrators have been indulging and enabling left-oriented protesters since the Kent State shootings in 1970. When will the worm turn?

When you speak the truth.

D.A. Abe Weiss, “Yesterday I was a respected Jewish liberal. Ten minutes of news like this and all of sudden I’m a hymie racist pig.”

[Bonfire of the Vanities]

If left to fester all totalitarian regimes eventually turn on everyone, including their own.

Time to use a bit of the civil rights movement from the 60’s. Whites and others should demonstrate on this campus calling for the end of racism and segregation at the school. A few white and proud signs would be appropriate also.. they should also burn the administration figures wearing Klan robes in effigy. Lastly, it’s time to ask the Trump administration to treat this school like the KKK.

Since he’s a liberal, he probably doesn’t read anything outside of approved works. If he were to wander outside the liberal coterie’s approved books and read one of the banned ones, SJWs Always Lie, he’d understand what’s going on.

Students said they were protesting institutional racism at the Olympia liberal arts college.

Which then begs the question: why are you attending said school?

“It’s important. It’s necessary,” said Halla Warmer, a junior. “It’s life or death for us.”
Seriously? When were you threatened, and did you file a police report?

Eedjits.

    Milhouse in reply to herm2416. | May 28, 2017 at 1:31 am

    Seriously? When were you threatened, and did you file a police report?

    Why would ze file a report with the very people who are most closely associated with institutional racism, and whose very existence is threatening to people of color?

    <irony>

Reality gobsmacks a Liberal?

At one point he says, “I’m a deeply progressive person. I’m troubled by what this implies about the current state of the left.”

Somebody pass the popcorn my way.

    Whitewall in reply to rinardman. | May 27, 2017 at 12:15 pm

    He is on to something. The Left is heading the way it always goes…stark raving mad.

    No need for popcorn. They only become “troubled” when the wrath and vitriol is directed at them as individuals.

      rinardman in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | May 27, 2017 at 12:40 pm

      Exactly! Do you really think this professor will be the last of their own they turn on?

      They’re just getting started. As I said….pass the popcorn.
      🙂

        And the next one will be the only one and so on. In other words, there will have to be a serious event before the regressive left starts getting it beyond the individual being targeted, and until more of them understand what they’ve created and start working to undo the decades of damage, these will remain isolated incidents.

        One of the tragedies of the regressive left is that they’ve worked long and hard to ensure that no one on their side can think critically (or even at all). This includes these regressive professors. They can’t rub two thoughts together because their only frame of of reference for connecting dots involves spotting racism (etc.) where it doesn’t exist and dreaming up insanities like “words are violent, so it’s justifiable to use actual violence to silence people who utter words we don’t like.” So when their ideological Frankenstein monsters turn on them, they may get a flash of “this sucks” if (and only if) they are the target, but the target will be the only one who thinks that, and it will pass quickly as they hurry to bend to the will of the monster mob.

        We’ll see this story again and again, so yeah, popcorn may be in order. I’ll pop some when things get really interesting. Heh.

        The Perils of Writing a Provocative Email at Yale

        Nicholas and Erika Christakis stepped down from their positions in residential life months after student activists called for their dismissal over a Halloween kerfuffle.

        Last fall, student protesters at Yale University demanded that Professor Nicholas Christakis, an academic star who has successfully mentored Ivy League undergraduates for years, step down from his position as faculty-in-residence at Silliman College, along with his wife, Erika Christakis, who shared in the job’s duties.

        The protesters had taken offense at an email sent by Erika Christakis.

Yeats may not have seen the half of it when he wrote:

“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold.”

What about when the centre does not even try to hold? It cares nothing about holding? It scoffs at the very concept of holding? It worries that if it even appears to hold it will be criticized by Chuck Todd, or Van Jones will accuse it of not being “woke”? What if the centre fears losing its invitations to the trendiest receptions?

What if, instead of holding, the centre has switched sides?

What do we do then?

Am I far off? The courts refuse to uphold the law, the police are told to stand down in the face of violence, and university administrations bow down to fascist mobs.

” The best lack all conviction, while the worst
“Are full of passionate intensity.” (Yeats)

A handle needs to be got on this, and soon. If even a dime of Federal contribution to a university allows the imposition of federal regulations (as we have seen recently regarding sexual assault issues and transgender bathrooms on campus) then I would urge these same levers to be used to return constitutional rights to those working and studying at these institutions.

The “rough beast” is slouching to be born, but it is a lot closer to home than Jerusalem.

The logic of [class] diversity is elusive. Let’s talk about it.

nordic_prince | May 27, 2017 at 1:02 pm

What am I missing here? Why are not the whiny brats thrown off campus and expelled? Why try to appease them? Why let the inmates run the asylum?

    HamiltonNJ in reply to nordic_prince. | May 27, 2017 at 1:18 pm

    Bingo.
    The only way to stop this is to start kicking these kids out.
    They are out of control.

    amwick in reply to nordic_prince. | May 27, 2017 at 3:29 pm

    I watched Tucker, and Prof. Weinstein said that the campus police had been instructed to stand down. He went on to say that eventually they ended up sorta hiding in their office.
    So, I wondered what were they there for.

    ConradCA in reply to nordic_prince. | May 28, 2017 at 2:12 pm

    LBJ and his disastrous handling of the Vietnam War disaffected a whole generation of Americans. They believe in Ho Chi Minh and Communism over the USA. These are the people who put Tyrant Obama the Liar in power and control our schools.

Sorry all you woke, liberal, crusaders like the good Professor here.
To the SJW crowd you are just another white guy.
And as far as they are concerned ALL white people are the enemy.

I’m gonna laugh my ass off when these demands for a 1-day expulsion from campus for whites turn in to demands for a permanent expulsion of all whites from campus. I’d love to see which of these commies would support that.

    That’s exactly where this is heading, has always been heading. The goal is to purposefully oppress white people and expel them from all aspects of life unless they fit in some other protected category, and as we see here, leftist ideology is not a protected category.

    They believe that the only way to get “justice” (social, economic, whatever) is to subordinate the enemy, put them in their place, and make them pay for a myriad of vague offenses (“institutional racism” being one of them). That they become exactly the sort of heavy-handed, hate-mongering oppressors that they claim to be combating is completely lost on them because they think they are “owed.” They WANT to be the exact same thing they claim to hate and to treat others in the same way they claim to be seeking reparative justice for.

    It’s actually rather perverse, but then, any group whose aim and glee is to invoke fear of physical harm and, eventually, actual physical harm is perverse. But that’s what we have here. And it’s not going away any time soon.

      Eric R. in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | May 27, 2017 at 5:04 pm

      These SJWs will find themselves either hanging from lamp posts, or “well ventilated” if they really insist on pushing it to that “logical” conclusion.

      Maybe they’ll rediscover why the “white” culture became the most dominant, stable and prosperous culture in history. We were a much more tolerant, free and prosperous society when we were working towards “building a more perfect union” during the American Experiment. We were always a meritocracy with flaws. One of them was racism.

      But it largely stopped being about race and gender a long time ago. So why are those who benefited the most now retreating to their tribes? Rejecting an imperfect society without a better alternative makes thing better? How about building on progress? Isn’t that what the term “progressive” is supposed to mean? So everybody stops talking to each other and finds a tribe?

      War, famine, disease and pestilence is God’s and nature’s way of controlling the excess a-hole population of self-destructive belligerents. Head-on collisions at four-way stop intersections aren’t getting it done. Neither is living in Chicago. Too slow. Step aside and let these idiots kill themselves off.

You wonder how far gone an obviously progressive college has gone when they have to go to such lengths to find something to victimize themselves about. To have a student claim that in the middle of this progressive hive the STILL don’t feel safe is to see the whole “safe” thing is just a roadblock to resisting them in any way.

Perhaps it is time to just start cracking heads?

    Eric R. in reply to Paul. | May 27, 2017 at 5:06 pm

    If this were being done at a college next door in Idaho, I might suspect the Governor would call in the National Guard. Tear gas them first, then arrest them and make sure that the AG prosecutes them for violent felonies.

Do I file this under Reap What You Sow or Dr. Frankenstein Killed by His Monster?

In an academic system that can’t discriminate between scholarship and tripe, this sort of thing should be expected.

The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct: A Sokal-Style Hoax on Gender Studies
http://www.skeptic.com/reading_room/conceptual-penis-social-contruct-sokal-style-hoax-on-gender-studies/

This paper should never have been published. Titled, “The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct,” our paper “argues” that “The penis vis-à-vis maleness is an incoherent construct. We argue that the conceptual penis is better understood not as an anatomical organ but as a gender-performative, highly fluid social construct.” As if to prove philosopher David Hume’s claim that there is a deep gap between what is and what ought to be, our should-never-have-been-published paper was published in the open-access (meaning that articles are freely accessible and not behind a paywall), peer-reviewed journal Cogent Social Sciences. (In case the PDF is removed, we’ve archived it.)

Assuming the pen names “Jamie Lindsay” and “Peter Boyle,” and writing for the fictitious “Southeast Independent Social Research Group,” we wrote an absurd paper loosely composed in the style of post-structuralist discursive gender theory. The paper was ridiculous by intention, essentially arguing that penises shouldn’t be thought of as male genital organs but as damaging social constructions. We made no attempt to find out what “post-structuralist discursive gender theory” actually means. We assumed that if we were merely clear in our moral implications that maleness is intrinsically bad and that the penis is somehow at the root of it, we could get the paper published in a respectable journal.

    DINORightMarie in reply to Neo. | May 28, 2017 at 3:09 am

    So you are saying that you wrote a completely fabricated, intentionally nonsensical paper, and that it was PUBLISHED?!

    Just astounding! It reminds me a lot of these studies of shrimp on treadmills…..except those were apparently really “studies” done with grants from the NSF…….

    Orwellian.

Let’s not forget too, that this is the school that spawned that terrorist-loving, Jew-hating Rachel Corrie.

Watching the video of the students’ infantile hostility, histrionics, thuggish intimidation tactics and total lack of civility/maturity in engaging the professor, I’m struck by nothing quite so apparent as that arguing with people such as this is akin to arguing with adolescent members of the Hitler Youth, brimming with naked aggression, self-perceived righteousness and unhinged hate/anger.

And, to think that these incubating totalitarian jackboot twits represent the future leaders of America, some of whom will eventually assume positions of prominence in the media, in academia, in government, in the judiciary and in business. Terrifying.

Some liberals get their “conversion muggings” later than others. Some not at all. Campuses filled with liberals have become fascist boot camps filled with apparatchiks too undereducated to realize the hypocrisy of their own actions.

For as left as Evergreen is, they do have a lot of independent thinkers there. They are sorely outnumbered by a cult of non thinking anarchist bots.

These are the types who go to the local parks- paid for by local liberals and tag it up with “F**K the Police”

They prey mostly on other leftists. The local conservatives don’t put up with their tantrums.

“As a biology professor for 15 years at Olympia’s The Evergreen State College, Bret Weinstein has seen his share of protests, but he’s never been afraid of being on campus until this week.”

In other words, he was OK as long as the Left’s assault on civility was directed at the opposition.

The last time this happened they ended up closing the universities.

Campus police have been rendered powerless to do anything by an order to stand down.

Why didn’t the real police step in?

    DaveGinOly in reply to Milhouse. | May 28, 2017 at 2:35 am

    Good question. It’s possible they weren’t notified and it’s also possible (in Olympia) that the police chief (due to political correctness) ordered his officers to not respond.

      DaveGinOly in reply to DaveGinOly. | May 28, 2017 at 2:52 am

      BTW, it’s been long-established that the police have no responsibility to individual citizens to respond to calls for assistance, but ordering police to not respond is not the same thing as not making it to a call in time. It’s dereliction of duty.
