We have covered this story at Emporia State University from the beginning. See the full backstory here.

The College Fix provides this update:

Student diversity officials call off impeachment for ‘illegal aliens’ remark to avoid lawsuit

Student government officials who threatened to impeach one of their leaders for using the phrase “illegal aliens” have backed off, citing fears for their “safety and wellbeing.”

They are also afraid of being sued for First Amendment violations.

Senators lashed out at Emporia State University administrators Wednesday night for not responding to the “hate” directed at them for the impeachment threat, according to The Bulletin student newspaper.

Associated Student Government executives, including the official threatened with impeachment, also canceled Thursday night’s scheduled senate meeting after moving it to a different location.

President Michael Webb and Vice President Michaela Todd blamed the cancellation on “serious concerns for the safety and well-being of the campus and community,” without specifying threats.

The Diversity and Inclusion Committee cited the same concerns when it rescinded its impeachment threat.

“[W]e did not intend to make Vice President Todd feel isolated in her community” by telling her to resign or face impeachment, it tweeted Wednesday morning, though the statement was dated Tuesday.

The phrase “oderint dum metuant” comes to mind.

They thought they were leading a parade until they looked in a mirror and saw they were alone.

It’s an easy mistake to make. When you tell someone to resign or face impeachment, there’s always the chance of that being taken as being “isolated in her community.” It’s a matter of sematics.

If bullsh*tting were an Olympic sport, this Diversity and Inclusion Committee statement would take the gold medal.

Oh, the irony! Do they even listen to themselves?! I guess being IMPEACHED is somehow inclusive, and not “isolating”.

What they REALLY mean:

We didn’t think anyone would get angry AT US enough to threaten US if we single out and Alinsky-ize (i.e. marginalize, then polarize “it” as he referred to people as “targets”) this evil target who DARED utter a phrase that we, the speech police, deem EVIL, worthy of impeachment! Now they are threatening US, not just her?! Yikes!!……let’s cry “victim!” and call the whole thing off.

That is absolutely precious and says more about these children than anything else in the entire article.
