Duke Students Who Disrupted President’s Speech Face No Punishment
“the university has decided to close the matter”
Once again, leftist students face no consequences for bad behavior.
The College Fix reports:
Duke protesters escape punishment, ‘celebrate the win’
It seems the cadre of Duke University protesters will learn not a thing as school officials have decided not to punish them for disrupting President Vincent Price’s speech to alumni.
Last Saturday, the protesters — now calling themselves the People’s State of the University — crashed Price’s address shouting “President Price get off the stage” and “Whose University? Our University,” followed by a list of their demands.
A few days later in a display of unbridled narcissism, the activists expressed disbelief at the negative reaction they got from Duke administrators and alumni, and the fact they might actually be disciplined for their antics.
Not to worry. According to The Chronicle, the university has decided to close the matter.
“We are celebrating this win and are excited to hear that the administration chose the correct action,” the People’s State of the University said in a statement yesterday. “We look forward to working with the administration [toward] fulfilling our vision of a better Duke.”
It may have helped that over 60 faculty members signed off on a letter supporting the demonstrators, including “remnants” of the infamous Group of 88 (sixteen of them, according to KC Johnson).

There is a “real world” out there snowflakes and some are not as tolerant of infantile temper tantrums. You may get employment in Obama’s “army”, but you will not make a living wage and you will only make him wealthier. 🙂
The heckler’s veto wins again. Wonder what they think the logical conclusion of allowing the heckler to always win is going to be: the complete shutdown of speech these fascists don’t like, or violence happening against the heckler(s). It’s one of the two.
The colleges and universities may have no balls but when these little pissants get out in the real world, they have a huge awakening coming.
Donald Trump harasses private citizens every day, all day, over and over through Twitter and as our President. He spouts off but he has yet to be punished.

On the contrary, I think they learned something. They learned that, yet again, the left is allowed to break basic rules of decency and common courtesy and get away with it.
