“The protest was a wonderful, beautiful thing.”
—Dartmouth Vice Provost for Student Affairs Inge-Lise Ameer during a campus student meeting discussion of last week’s Black Lives Matter protest in the student library. Ameer proclaimed her support for the protesters, their conduct and their demands.
The student protest she was so thrilled with is described here and here. Ethics Alarms also referenced the protest, including these memorable statements that black students screamed in the faces of white students:
“Fuck you, you filthy white fucks!”
“Fuck you and your comfort!”
“Fuck you, you racist shit!
When a female student began to cry as a result of the confrontation, the protester shouted, “Fuck your white tears!”
This is what a Dartmouth administrator described as “a wonderful, beautiful thing.”
Of course, she should be summarily fired, and the students responsible for the assault ought to be suspended or expelled. They won’t be.
The kind of speech direct at the students by the racist Black Lives Matter members (I know that’s redundant; indulge me) was what the Supreme Court has called “fighting words,” especially when combined with the conduct of getting into a student’s space in a hostile attitude. It is a miracle there wasn’t a fight; there should have been. Students should not tolerate this kind of unjustified, anti-white conduct while they are studying, or any other time.
Note that the mainstream media doesn’t feel this is worthy of coverage or comment.
