We’ve been making fun of the Mizzou protesters (Read #SJW Mizzou Students Violate Student Reporter), mainly because…they’ve given us a ton to make fun of and that’s what we do here, how could we not? Passing up the opportunity for mockery is like not getting second helpings of bacon from an all you can eat bacon place. Also, someone open that business. But, in all the news…does anyone know why the President of Mizzou was fired? Something about race and mockery or something…
Joe Scarborough: I guess what I am saying is what are those reasons? What are the specifics? I’ve been reading since this photograph was taken, looking for specifics of systemic actions that have made students feel excluded. What are the specifics?
Eugene Robinson: I don’t know what those specifics are.
Scarborough: Isn’t that troubling, Gene, that you don’t know, a Pulitzer Prize winner, this guy is run out as president of the university because the football team said we’re not going to play, and neither you nor I know reading these articles know what he did to evoke this type of response? Is this a complete failure of the national media to report?
Robinson: The national media should always have done a better job at getting to the bottom of everything.
Set aside that you have to wonder how many times “journalists” can say that journalists need to start doing a better job before they actually start doing a better job. This is the same MSNBC that has never seen an opportunity to play the race card they didn’t like. You would think this story is one they would dream about and requiring of a sheet-change, because dang. A white guy was run out of his job by black football players. But why? Well, no one’s really sure. Hey, if you expected reporters to like, report and stuff…lower your expectations. You racist.
Which means we’re looking at yet another example of A) the media doing a fecal job of reporting the news, and B) colleges are bastions of intolerance and overly sensitive grown-people, who I cannot in clear conscience call “adults.” A man was driven from his job because maybe, just maybe, someone had their feelings hurt (we discuss this in SJW Students at Mizzou Create Human Shield to Block Reporters). You know what’s hurting? The founding fathers. They’re rolling in their graves so rapidly, if we tapped into their kinetic energy, we might be able to harness it as alternative energy. Food for thought…
