George Mason U. Students Claim Having Justice Kavanaugh Teach Makes Them Feel Unsafe

George Mason U. Students Claim Having Justice Kavanaugh Teach Makes Them Feel Unsafe

“As a survivor of sexual assault this decision has really impacted me negatively”

Wouldn’t you love to see just one person in authority tell these students to grow up?

The College Fix reports:

Students protest visiting Professor Brett Kavanaugh as threat to ‘mental health’

Some students at George Mason University continue to put pressure on campus leaders to fire U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh from his new post as a visiting law professor.

Kavanaugh was hired in January by GMU’s Antonin Scalia Law School and is set to co-teach a class this summer called “Creation of the Constitution” in Runnymede, England, where the Magna Carta was sealed.

Despite the fact that Kavanaugh is teaching over 3,500 miles away from the Virginia campus, several students took to the podium at the Board of Visitors meeting last Wednesday to say they feel unsafe having Kavanaugh teach the class.

Exclusive video recorded by The College Fix shows several students, a few who say they are sexual assault survivors, address the campus leaders to tell them students’ mental health is threatened by the Kavanaugh hire.

“As a survivor of sexual assault this decision has really impacted me negatively,” one female student said. “It is affecting my mental health knowing that an abuser will be part of our faculty.”

Another female student gave similar comments to the board: “As someone who has survived sexual assault three times I do not feel comfortable with someone who has sexual assault allegations like walking on campus.”

It’s tough to look them in the eye when they bring this kind of guilt trip down, but someone has to do and explain it as tactfully and justly as possible.

That should be the main reason that admins get paid the big bucks.

So is the 3-time victim a slow learner or a fast forgetter?

When are we going to get some college administrators who aren’t groveling wimps? The George Mason President needs to tell these students to grow up and live in the real world. Then he needs to tell them that it’s none of their goddam business who he hires to teach courses, that he’s running the university and not the inmates.

If they don’t like Kavanaugh, they don’t have to take his course. But they can’t tell everyone else that they can’t take his course.

    Unfortunately, our young people have been told how special they are. Which gives them the right to tell others how to think and act.

How cool would it be to be a part of this class? Learning about Con Law from a sitting SCOTUS Justice? Yet, these infantile, histrionic, ingrate twits can only toe the Leftist line and parrot utterly-discredited, slanderous accusations against Justice K.

very happy to hear so many students feel “unsafe.” It’s a step back to reality.

They’re lying, and they know it. “I feel unsafe” has become a coded way of saying, ‘I don’t like it, and I want it to be banned’ or ‘I don’t like him/her and I want to see them punished.’ They are playing upon the guilt of white administrators who have been pre-conditioned to respect any statement, no matter how absurd, from someone of a supposedly oppressed group. It isn’t even a matter of students growing up—although there is that. It’s a matter of stopping students from getting away with demands they know they couldn’t make successfully if they were honest about it.

They should be called out: ‘You are making this up! You are lying about being fearful; you are instead trying to suppress opinions you don’t agree with, and stifle the expression of those you have been told to dislike.’ If they persist, like any student making a dishonest claim to their university, they should be disciplined—and suspended or expelled if they persist.

These students must be besides themselves with fear and anger attending school in a state where the LT. Governor has been accused of sexual abuse by two women. I wonder why they aren’t speaking out against him? Not really…

    Yes, right. Isn’t it funny how these ‘post-traumatic’ fears always seem to follow partisan lines? Doesn’t that make you wonder, sometimes?
