On Feb 2, students at New York University on Thursday night gathered to demonstrate against a speech being delivered by Vice Media co-founder and conservative actor Gavin McInnes.
Here’s a video of a professor lashing out at the police (who were there to keep order):
According to this hysterical professor, the “kids” (college students) were in danger because neo-Nazis (Gavin McInnes and those who wanted to listen to his speech) were on campus. After all, the “kids” went to New York University to learn about racism, xenophobia, and LGCTQ rights. In other words, the “kids” are there to be indoctrinated. The most remarkable aspect of this video is that this college professor actually said the police had a duty to “kick the ass” of the “neo-Nazis.” And she even cites herself as a “professor” as if that puts authority behind her demands. She then brags about how peaceful her students are, which is why she demands the police do their dirty work for them.
It’s quite clear this professor is motivated by Hate. Her hatred of conservative actor Gavin McInnes and his audience is painfully obvious. What’s painfully hypocritical is to fulminate against “neo-nazis” while demanding the police “kick the ass” of the hated group. The only one coming across as a neo-nazi here is the professor.
What this professor may represent is the gradual decline of academia. Critical thinking is replaced with emotional rants and freedom of speech and thinking is replaced with ideological conformity that is supposed to be back up by police brutality.
