Why Did That Guy Resign Again?


Nathan Harden writes about the theater of white guilt and the resignation of University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe.

From Richochet:

The President of the University of Missouri resigned in a dramatic, televised speech this morning. He must have done something really bad, right? If you’re like many people out there, you may be reading the news articles trying to figure out exactly what the bad thing was.

He didn’t do enough to quell the racist, anti-minority environment on his campus!  That bastard! Wait?  Are we sure there’s such an environment on campus?

When it comes to race relations, what’s important on most American campuses today is not the facts, but rather the narrative of the social justice struggle. If you are perceived as not taking racism seriously enough, it’s off with your head. That’s why at a big football school like Missouri, where this weekend’s game is worth $1 million in revenue to the school, 30 black players could be convinced to go on strike unless Wolfe stepped down — despite the fact that Wolfe, to the best of our knowledge, has never said or done anything that could be construed as racist.

The chancellor has also quit.  I guess these two were viewed as “not sufficiently anti-racist.”

    Why did he have to resign? Because he was a white male.

    At least the day care…. I mean University is considering firing the Assistant Professor of Journalism that physically blocked reporters from covering the priest and told them they had no right to be there.

    Fire the woman who asked for “muscle’ to remove a student journalist from the demonstrations. Fire the football coach if he refuses to work. Cancel the scholarships for any player who doesn’t suit up. Expel all students involved in the demonstrations for disrupting the education of the rest of the school.

    Show the faculty and students the adults are back in charge…

    I got spit on wearing my ROTC uniform at the University of Kentucky in 1970. I punched the guy. Campus police became involved.

    Two weeks later I got a nice (no, really) letter from the Dean of Students saying that it was good to know that there were still patriots on his campus. My, my, things have changed.
