***LIVE UPDATES*** Campus Crazies on ‘Million Student March’

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

Student demonstrations are set to engulf the U.S. today in the ‘Million Student March’, as activists from campuses around the country stage a day of protests against tuition fees and student debt, further inflamed by recent social justice protests at Yale and Missouri.

A statement from the activists reads: “We are people of all colors, genders, and sexual orientation, and we are united to fight for education as a human right.” Protesters are calling for tuition-free public college, cancellation of student debt, and a $15 minimum wage for college workers… plus a lot of other stuff about “straight white male patriarchy” and rape culture on campus.

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

The atmosphere is likely to be particularly charged given that the day of protests occurs after a week of political unrest on U.S campuses, particularly Yale and the University of Missouri, over racial issues. Breitbart News will bring you live updates from around the country as the protests unfold.

Minnesota students are now holding a night-time rally in solidarity with Mizzou.

From Breitbart’s Joel Pollak: original coverage from the belly of the beast itself, UC Berkeley. Over 1,000 students and Black Lives Matter activists gathered at the campus.

At the rally, students spoke about the debt and race issues almost interchangeably. Lauren Butler of the Black Student Union told the crowd: “The students of UC Berkeley stand in solidarity with the black students at Mizzou who are being terrorized.” She was followed several minutes later by Black Lives Matter activist Alana Banks, who said that Wall Street should be taxed to pay for free tuition, and that student liberation required black liberation.

From Allum Bokhari:Here’s something a little different, but equally mind-boggling. The Students Association at the University of Minnesota has rejected a resolution to hold an annual day of remembrance for 9/11.

Amazing.

Stephen Miller at National Review playfully suggests that the Missouri poop swastika was “a triumph of conceptual art”…

The latest example of human waste as art comes in the form of Poop Swastika, which purportedly appeared on display at the University of Missouri campus, in a dormitory restroom. Poop Swastika has caused quite the reaction among students and faculty and provoked controversy enough for major media outlets to pick up the story. Very few details of the work or the artist have emerged, but the mystery has only added to the allure. Was the artist a student on campus? A faculty member? How was the work done? Did the artist use his own fecal matter, or was it an assistant? Why did the artist choose that particular campus or restroom? No one is sure, and the questions are sure to burden art critics for the foreseeable future as they ponder the social ramifications of this master-work.

The University of South Florida “stands with Mizzou”…

while our correspondent Adelle Nazarian is at USC, listening to student speeches:

“We are calling for the school to redefine what diversity means on this campus,” said one black male student who took a few minutes to address a crowd who had gathered after midday on campus. Many of those gathered wore black clothing, in solidarity with the cause.

Prospective USC student, social activist and self-described “gay Latino” Richard Aviles also spoke to the crowd, telling all who were gathered that he’s “here because this institution will not accept that it gentrifies.” He alleged that USC is displacing both its students and people of color by buying up the homes “of people of color who who have worked hard to own the homes that they live in, that are now being taken over by student housing.”

Aviles continued, “I am here to dismantle the myth that Latinos do not care about the struggles of black folk. Because, at the end of the day, it is the same white system that doesn’t like me either.”

Breitbart’s Michelle Moons is at the University of California San Diego, where Occupy protesters have returned from the dead to gin up support for socialism among angry, disaffected students.

About 150 students were gathered chanting and marching around one section of campus for just over an hour in the middle of the day. Breitbart News reported early Thursday on the marches, which have been planned for weeks, but have received increased attention in the wake of student complaints at Mizzou over the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson and “racial incidents on campus.” The president and chancellor of the University of Missouri resigned earlier this week.

Co-organizer Aman Birk, a UCSD student with the Socialist Alternative told Breitbart News that he was wearing a red felt patch safety pinned to his shirt “in solidarity with all those in student debt they cannot pay.” Another protester, Manny Aguilar told Breitbart News that he has been very involved with Black Lives Matter and participated in Occupy movements in San Diego, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Encinitas, California.

BEN CARSON: COLLEGES HAVE ‘LEVEL OF INTOLERANCE FOR NON-PC IDEAS THAT IS THREATENING OUR FREEDOMS

Carson stated, “at a lot of campuses, there’s a level of intolerance for things that are not, so-called, politically correct, that is growing, and is really threatening our freedoms. It seems like we’re not really emphasizing the whole concept of freedom of speech, and freedom of expression, and most importantly, of open dialogue. You know, it’s okay to disagree with people, but it’s not okay to try to destroy them. What we really need to do if we were mature, is to be able to sit down, put on a table, the rationale for our beliefs, and discuss them like intelligent adults. That is not being fostered at our universities, to the detriment of our society, and we need to stop it before we change into something that we don’t want to be.”

The same race radicals have been on campuses for decades… Mike Middleton, the new interim President of the University of Missouri founded the school’s Legion of Black Collegians (LBC) in 1968. In 1969, Middleton presented the following list of demands to the college. Among the demands are:

  • The creation of a powerful new discilipinary and academic appeals committee with an in-built black majority.
  • A $300,000 (not adjusted for inflation) fund to supplement the salaries of black staff members.
  • The allocation of $60,000 (not adjusted) to fund a new Black Culture House.
  • LBC oversight over black applications to university staff positions. .

Capitulation to the full list of LBC demands is a key plank of Concerned Student 1950, the Missouri student group that forced the resignation of Tim Wolfe.

BREAKING: The Dean at Claremont McKenna College (CMC) has resigned. Despite being a conservative campus, CMC has also been subject to race protests in recent weeks. Protests were sparked after a photo circulated of female CMC students wearing sombreros for Halloween.

Screen Shot 2015-11-12 at 22.15.04

Bizarrely, the Dean became a target after she agreed that there was “a lot to do” and offered to talk to the concerned students. Yet more confirmation of Trump’s position on the chaos: showing weakness only makes them hungrier for blood.

Full resignation letter:

Dear CMC Community:

Since 2010 I have been privileged to serve as Dean of Students at Claremont McKenna College. Today I am submitting my letter of resignation, effective immediately. I do so with sadness beyond words, because these nearly six years have been the most rewarding and fulfilling of my life, but also with the conviction that it is the right thing to do for the school and the students I care about so deeply.

I have been grateful for the support of the Administration and the heartening encouragement I have received from so many of my students, former students and colleagues. Among the calls, texts and emails I have received is a student who wrote:

“You’ve inspired me in my time at CMC. Please stay strong and realize students like me need you to stay here…I will always be honored to consider you a mentor, a role model, and above all, friend.”

And a faculty member who wrote:

“I also recognize how much you have worked to make our community more inclusive… I know I join many fellow faculty members and students in expressing my full support and confidence in you as Dean of Students here at CMC.”

To all who have been so supportive, please know how sorry I am if my decision disappoints you. I believe it is the best way to gain closure of a controversy that has divided the student body and disrupted the mission of this fine institution. Most important, I hope this will help enable a truly thoughtful, civil and productive discussion about the very real issues of diversity and inclusion facing Claremont McKenna, higher education and other institutions across our society.

Sincerely,

Mary

An inspiring photo via the New York Times. The Times confirms Donald Trump’s warning. Missouri has set a precedent, and is emboldening campus SJWs around the country.

In interviews, students say they have been inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement that grew out of the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by the police in Ferguson, Mo. They say the victory of protesting students and football players at the University of Missouri has spurred them to demand that their universities provide a safe space for students of color.

POOP SWASTIKA DEVELOPMENTS…

From Milo Yiannopoulos yesterday:

It’s now open season on social justice warriors and political correctness, both of which the entertainment industry and most serious journalists now recognise as a threat to creative freedom and freedom of expression. Public opinion is shifting, too: I’ve been reporting on social justice warriors in some way or another for most of my career, and it’s only the last few months I’ve noticed real hostility toward hand-wringers.

That hostility is now coming from the left, too, with left-wingers who don’t sign up to the progressive consensus, openly mocking trigger warnings and safe spaces, aghast at their own side for the inane drivel now published daily on sites like Vox, Buzzfeed, Mic, Vice and Gawker.

But what’s so brilliant about the social justice tendency is that it refuses to acknowledge when it has been beaten in the court of public opinion. SJWs aren’t just doubling down, they’re going full retard, installing codes of conduct that read like something from the Twilight Zone. Just this week, Vox instructed its staff not to “mansplain” to one another.

This is all good news, because it makes them easier to beat. The bitter white middle-class bloggers who fuel so much misery and division in American society are lurching ever further away from the public and even their own readers by ignoring facts and indulging in hurtful, speculative narrative based on discredited and preposterous far-left ideology.

Breitbart’s Allum Bokhari writes: “If you’re not a liberal in your early twenties, you have no heart. If you’re not a conservative by your thirties, you have no brain. So goes the famous quote from Winston Churchill. But should we just assume that campus radicals are going to develop tolerance and common sense as they age? There are many examples of student movements that stayed radical well after their members grew up. Mao’s Red Guards are one such example. The Taliban, too, were a student movement. The word “Taliban” literally means “students.” In fairness to both of those groups, neither were big on safe spaces and play-doh. They were, however, quite keen on the suppression of disagreement, a feature that is worryingly common among campus activists.”

More reading for you on the character of today’s student protesters. Jonathan Chait asks in New York magazine: “Can We Start Taking Political Correctness Seriously Now?”

That these activists have been able to prevail, even in the face of frequently harsh national publicity highlighting the blunt illiberalism of their methods, confirms that these incidents reflect something deeper than a series of one-off episodes. They are carrying out the ideals of a movement that regards the delegitimization of dissent as a first-order goal. People on the left need to stop evading the question of political correctness — by laughing it off as college goofs, or interrogating the motives of p.c. critics, or ignoring it — and make a decision on whether they agree with it.

“Defending free speech and championing resilience for collegians is vital to undermining racism, not a distraction,” writes Conor Friedersdorf at The Atlantic.

The core liberties that protect all Americans, and that are especially important to the most marginalized, are much more important than “tone.” Suggestions to the contrary speak volumes about the elevation of rhetorical sensitivity over substance among those ostensibly seeking change. To me, it is bizarre that the same campus activists who declare their institutions and the United States to be rooted in white supremacy and hostile to students of color want to empower the very authorities in charge to punish speech at their discretion! The impulse to declare the First Amendment null and void when it interferes with punishing racist, hurtful speech may seem, in the moment, as though it shows compassion toward marginalized groups, salving their anger and pain. But it does so at their ultimate expense, and I’m not even convinced that the immediate anger and pain would be less.

From Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos earlier this week…

November 2015 may well prove a tipping point in the college campus descent into politically correct chaos. Unlike Yale, where outrage was generated over dressing-up boxes, students at the University of Missouri have alleged that more serious incidents took place. The African-American student government president claims that in September, he was on the receiving end of racial slurs from people driving a passing pick-up truck.

There have been a lot of campus hoaxes involving black students, of course – though for the sake of politeness you’re not supposed to say so. Normally it involves students who have been ginned up by race hustlers. The most notorious case involved fake rape allegations from Tawana Brawley. What’s remarkable about Missouri is that mere allegations have been enough to topple a college leader.

You see, when you start telling students that their feelings and their “lived experience” is more important than facts, it follows that they will consider their own aggravated sense of personal victimhood sufficient grounds for the resignation of college staff. READ MORE…

Commentary from our own Lee Stranahan: America has endured seven years of activist agitprop and simmering race baiting, all emanating from the Obama adminstration’s bully pulpit and every media outlet they influence. From the “beer summit” to “if I had a son” to active defenders from the White House of the Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter movement, we have been subjected to the fifty-year plan of revolutionaries who failed to overthrow the country in the 60s but slithered into the shadows of the ivory.

Over half of the 60s domestic terrorist Weathermen – from Bill Ayers to Kathy Boudin – became “educators” at American Universities across the country. Under the guise of academic freedom, these leftists stopped planting bombs and robbing banks and began grading papers, teaching teachers and journalists, and pushing an anti-America multicultural agenda.

Now, the ivory’s tower chickens have come home to roost. The tactics of campus radicalism that spawned the chaos and violence of the 1960s has returned, fostered by two generations of tenured radicals. The leftist activism we’re seeing today is just the beginning…

Last night, students at Yale held a “teach-in” to discuss racial issues, described by Yale Daily News as “A forum dedicated to educating the community about the issues faced by people of colour at Yale.” Panel topics included “mental health and microaggressions,” “women of colour,” and “systemic racism.” This followed weeks of protests and attempted Maoist-style purges at Yale after a professor at Silliman College suggested that offensive Halloween costumes might not be a crime against humanity.

A brilliant plan to fund free tuition in Texas: suck the oil & gas industry dry! That will definitely help the graduate jobs market.

Two students on opposite sites of the debate are talking to each other pleasantly. THIS ISN’T SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN.

Meanwhile, The Tab has a live blog of Blackout protests at Boston College. Says one protester: “I’m here today because injustice everywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. I’m here today because my freshman year, a white student told me that because I was black, I should twerk for their entertainment. I’m here today because enough is enough.”

James O’Keefe has been detained by police at Yale university. O’Keefe is an undercover journalist who is famous for uncovering the corrupt and anti-American practices of progressive institutions. He is the head of Project Veritas, which undertakes undercover video journalism across the U.S. One of Project Veritas’ journalists recently convinced administrators at Yale and other campuses to rip up copies of the U.S constitution after convincing them that the document made her “emotionally distraught.” No wonder they want to shut O’Keefe up…

The biracial President of the Mizzou College Republicans has spoken exclusively to Breitbart. “There is an ongoing push for ‘Social Justice Centers’ … within college campuses. For those who do not subscribe to the certain set of beliefs provided by these ‘centers’, they are ostracized and condemned.” He also challenged claims of “systematic discrimination” at Mizzou.

“I will not deny the fact that racist individuals exist. As a half-black & half-white twenty-year-old male, I too have endured derogatory slurs; in the instance I have been called a slur, I sympathize for the individual. And put the blame for ignorance not on the Institution, but that exact individual. The protest has not done a sufficient job at separating the individual from the community. I think of Systemic Oppression when I read through the profound History of the Great Leap Forward in Communist China, the tribulations of MLK, the Persecution of Christians & Jews in the Middle East – not this.”

For students aspiring to unintentional comedy greatness, the Cornell chapter of Black Students United are the ones to beat. The group has called for the cancellation of a Blackout solidarity protest with the University of Missouri’s #ConcernedStudent1950 because of a “lack of people of color involved.” Adorable.

A police department spokesman confirmed that they had received the complaint and are looking into it.

Is #MillionStudentMarch a genuine grassroots campaign? It claims to be a “grassroots effort,” but it’s also been coordinated at a national level by “a committee responsible for administration and communications, and that produces organizing materials and builds relationships with other activist groups and unions.” It advises students on how organise their own march on campus, including guidelines for media relations (Melissa Click clearly didn’t get the memo), messaging, and volunteer outreach. With protests coordinated from coast to coast, some conservatives are wondering who’s bankrolling all of this…

TVUMedia, a Black Lives Matter-supporting Twitter account with 20,000 followers has said that 30-year-old St. Louis area Neo-Nazi leader Samuel Hyde [is] wanted for assaulting 3 black #Mizzou students.” What they presumably don’t realise is that Sam Hyde is a sketch comedian and serial hoaxster. Earlier this year, a member of his comedy troupe convinced large sections of the tech and gaming media that he was a violent misogynist who wanted to harm feminist video games developer Brianna Wu. Are all progressives this gullible, or just the ones interested in identity politics?

New York City students for Justice in Palestine have posted their own version of the Million Student March manifesto that targets “Professional Zionists” in the City University of New York (CUNY) administration for “supporting Israeli occupation.” A little off-message there.

On Breitbart News Daily this morning, Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder called events at Mizzou “appalling” and blamed the progressive left. He added that conservatives have “allowed this to happen” by “averting our gaze as tenured radicals have taken over the university,” Kinder added, “We could not avert our gaze from the appalling events at the University of Missouri in the last week.”

Breitbart’s Lee Stranahan reports that Missouri activist Jonathan Butler falsified a key claim about the school’s president. It turns out Butler was never hit by the president’s car, as he claimed. Instead he ran towards it.

Good morning! The L.A Times has invited students to submit stories in response to the question “Is your campus a safe space?” We’re sure there won’t be any response bias at all there. The Million Student March is being backed by unions, left-wing groups and Bernie Sanders’ Presidential campaign.

Elsewhere, the Lt. Governor of Missouri has condemned the ongoing chaos at the University of Missouri, telling Breitbart News Daily on Sirius XM Patriot that the events were the result of “decades of leftist control” on campuses, but emphasising that conservatives shared some of the blame for “averting [their] gaze as tenured radicals have taken over the university.” A full list of planned protests can be found at this link.
