Once upon a time college students actually debated each other on college campuses. But now a days, most of these same liberal institutions would just rather support safe spaces and spread false information, especially when it comes to Conservatives like Ben Shapiro. However, these millennials at UC Merced in California seem to think they can effect the hiring and promotion of professors, even if those professors incite fighting a Conservative like Ben Shapiro.
Shouldn’t public universities be platforms for open discourse? What’s wrong with this picture? They want their ‘safe spaces’ on one hand, but they promote violence on the other? And on top of that want those professors who incited that violence promoted by the university? WTH?
Reported by Campus Reform,
Students have rallied around a University of California-Merced lecturer after his offer to participate in a mixed martial arts (MMA) fight with conservative commentator Ben Shapiro came to light earlier this month, and are demanding that the university promote him to “Assistant Professor.”
An audio recording obtained by Campus Reform earlier this month revealed that UC-Merced Sociology lecturer Dr. Fernando Chirino called Shapiro an “a**hole white supremacist” during a lecture to students, and declared that he would enjoy “ripping this fool’s shoulder out of his socket.”
Talk about hypocrites. They want freedom of speech, but don’t want to see a debate of the professor and Ben Shapiro. They want safe spaces, but they would rather support physical violence and the ripping of Shapiro’s shoulder out of his socket? In addition, these same college students want the power to promote this college teacher to assistant professor?
Shapiro is set to visit UC-Merced’s campus during an upcoming event in February, and although Chirino stated that he “wouldn’t debate [Shapiro],” he suggested that students, “set up some sort of an MMA thing between me and him.”
INSANE! This morons then quickly mobilized to defend Chirino and even created a Twitter page titled, “Justice4Chirino.”
“We will not let our academic freedom be silence or attacked. We are in solidarity with Professor Fernando. We demand justice,” the Justice4Fernando tweeted. The tweet was accompanied by photos of students raising their fists, and holding signs that read, “Academic Freedom,” and “Say no to Ben Shapiro.”
Ben Shapiro IS all about freedom of speech. So do these students NOT support freedom of speech, but do support ‘Academic Freedom’? Shouldn’t ‘Academic Freedom’ involve freedom of speech and the right of Ben Shapiro to speak to college Republicans on campus?
A graphic posted by the organization on Instagram states, “Say no to Ben Shapiro,” and “No platform for Fascist [sic]!Or Racist [sic]!”
Oh wait, but that’s not all. The post is accompanied by a picture of a Ku Klux Klan hood, a Pepe the frog wearing a Make America Great Again Hat, a white supremacist Identity Evropa logo, and the outline of President Trump’s hair, all with a red slash through it.
In addition it seems the Justice4Fernando posted a petition demanding that the university “stand in solidarity with our Professor and colleague Fernando Cortes Chirino.” The petition also condemned “white supremacist news media” for “inciting violent threats and ongoing harassment against Dr. Chirino and the UC-Merced community.”
Yes. You read that right. Even though this moron professor is the one who called Shapiro an “a**hole white supremacist” during a lecture to students, and declared that he would enjoy “ripping this fool’s shoulder out of his socket”….these students blame the ‘white supremacist news media’ for ‘inciting violent threats’.
The students also added,
“We reject any effort to silence Dr. Chirino for speaking against white supremacy,” the petition continues, and declares that Dr. Chirino had been “[speaking] movingly about ongoing struggles for justice, dignity, respect and the importance of solidarity.”
Uh. So, you don’t want to silence Dr. Chirino, but you DO want to silence Ben Shapiro?
You want justice, but you think Dr. Chirino inciting violence against Ben Shapiro is ok, because you stand for dignity and respect?
Yep. That sounds like a typical $50,000/year tuition, liberal university college campus to me.
By the way, just another interesting note, this also comes from a university that has only a 10% white population according to their own 2017-2018 data and less than 1% out of state.
Kind of gives you a perspective of why California is so screwed up and why in 2016, over 26,000 people LEFT the Bay area. In fact in the last decade, thanks to California’s liberal policies over 5 million people have left the state. Bye. Bye.
Oh…here’s the college professor’s rant: ****WARNING GRAPHIC LANGUAGE!!!!!***Not appropriate for underage children!!!!
