The racists at #BlackLivesMatter and associated groups on college campuses have been having a field day lately. They took over the President’s office at Princeton, raised all sorts of hell at Dartmouth, and are generally acting like the “anti-war protesters” of the 60s across the country. Demands abound, charges of racism are flying around like it was Selma and Bull Connor was running the Ivy League.
The administration at Dartmouth was so upset by the demonstrations and the response to them by the conservative Dartmouth student newspaper – and other conservative media – they apologized. Not to Dartmouth alumni. Not to students who were assaulted in Baker Library by #BlackLivesMatter thugs. No, they apologized to the thugs.
A Dartmouth College official reportedly apologized Monday night to Black Lives Matter protesters for their portrayal in the conservative media following a contentious protest last week in a campus library.
In a community discussion at the Ivy League campus, several students voiced concerns over portrayals of Thursday’s chaotic protest that was caught on video and published by Campus Reform. An editorial by The Dartmouth Review, an independent campus newspaper, alleged that white students were pushed and shoved by the group. The Dartmouth, the school’s student daily, confirmed through witness accounts that some students studying in the Baker-Berry Library were yelled at, insulted and forced to tears.
Vice Provost for Student Affairs Inge-Lise Ameer was in attendance at Monday’s meeting following the protest, and she apologized to students for the negative responses and media coverage that they have received, The Darmouth reported.
“There’s a whole conservative world out there that’s not being very nice,” Ms. Ameer said.
Actually Ms. Ameer, if you want “not very nice” you need look no further than the #BlackLivesMatter protesters at your campus.
Dan Korff-Korn, who participated in Thursday’s protest, said many of the demonstrators approached students studying in the library and chanted, “[Expletive] your white privilege” and “[Expletive] your white asses.”
“It was important to point out that the students sitting there in the library at the computers represented this greater degree of ignorance, apathy and privilege that you see at Dartmouth …
That’s a whole mouthful coming from someone who is likely getting pretty close to a free ride at a prestigious university that, were he white, he wouldn’t have been admitted to.
The bottom line is one that was completely unexpected by the #BlackLivesMatter thugs. It started at the University of Illinois.
That’s right, WHITE Student Unions.
Virtually every college & university has black student unions, Asian student unions, and Martian student unions. Guess what? The so-called “people-of-color” consider a white student union.
At UC Berkeley, a protest has already been organized in response to the “UC Berkeley White Student Union” page. The event is scheduled for Nov. 30.
“This is clearly an outrage and a direct attack against PoC groups. I am in contact with various student groups including the BSU and BAMN, and we will try to get enough people to get this despicable page off of Facebook,” the protest’s event page states.
The University of Illinois was on top of things, making sure to protect the free speech rights of their students.
At the University of Illinois, it acted swiftly to have the “Illini White Student Union” page removed. A report by The Daily Illini quoted campus spokeswoman Robin Kaler as saying: “It is disturbing and cowardly that someone would create an anonymous and senseless social media page specifically designed to intimidate others, including and especially our students.”
As you can see above, the Illini White Student Union page IS BACK! The Berkeley protest page is, however, gone.
So far, at least 30 universities are facing the prospect of a White Student Union at their school. Thanks to Campus Reform for their list.
The following is a list of pages from other schools across the United States and Canada: UCLA, Stanford, UC Davis, Princeton, University of Missouri, UC Berkeley, California State University at Fullerton, University of Tennessee at Knoxville, Penn State University, Florida International University, Ohio State University, University of North Carolina, University of Texas at Austin, UC Santa Barbara, University of Minnesota, Occidental College, LSU, Michigan State University, Washington State University, University of Central Florida, North Carolina State University, University of Cincinnati, University of Montana, Loyola University at Chicago, Rutgers, NYU, Portlan
d State University, University of Illinois, University of British Columbia, University of Western Ontario.
If you’ve got a spare minute or two drop by as many as you can and give them a “Like.”
Pass the popcorn please, this could really be fun.
