Student Protesters at Reed College Facing Punishment Call on Colin Kaepernick

Student Protesters at Reed College Facing Punishment Call on Colin Kaepernick

“in desperate need of solidarity”

This makes perfect sense. Left wing students at Reed and Kaepernick deserve each other.

The College Fix reports:

Facing punishment, disruptive student protesters beg Colin Kaepernick for help

Student protesters at Reed College engaged in an aggressive occupation of administrative offices at the school are now facing punishment for their 48-day sit-in and have turned to former NFL player Colin Kaepernick in a plea for help.

“I am writing to you because the black students and allies at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, are in desperate need of solidarity,” a student leader for the protest group, Reedies Against Racism, wrote in the Dec. 5 open letter to the former football player.

The four dozen or so student protesters demand that the school divest from Wells Fargo bank, citing its profit from prisons and support of the Dakota pipeline. Their occupation includes sleeping in tents and on couches and floor mats in the president’s office, hallways, and even the faculty lounge, according to the group.

The students now face punishment for their lengthy sit-in that in late October even prompted officials to place no-contact orders against some of its members after they allegedly harassed a treasurer’s office staff member and blocked the office’s employees from doing their jobs.

The group’s stand against Wells Fargo is the latest demonstration by the group, which has been active on campus for more than a year and whose members interrupted the lecture of a humanities class earlier this semester to protest the mandatory Western Civilization course because it assigned too many books by white authors.

This makes perfect sense. How could the administration not listen to the pleadings of such an outstanding scholar as Colin Kaepernick? I’m sure he will explain the logic of lawless and disruptive behavior in a way anyone would accept!

OMG … the students demanded something and their demands weren’t met … and rather than stand on their own two feet … they plead for someone else to to bail them out from the consequences of their own decisions and behavior. Typical snowflakes. Frickin’ grow a spine you fools.

They all deserve each other – the idiotic “protesters,” the spineless administration (48 days of this stupidity?), and loser Kaepernick. Bad cess to all of them.
