Why did the faculty side with the protesters against the students and guest speaker?
I said a few days ago that if something stupid happened, I'd say something about it. Here we are.
Sargon's got it right here: this is institutional abuse of a vulnerable population, personalized for effect. There's a lot more like Edward in places and situations like this, and it really does show you just how much the SocJus is a nasty, dirty, mind-controlling death cult with this position in Academia and the Media. That guy is a virtual human sacrifice for the demon lord of this death cult, no different than Thulsa Doom beckoning a girl to leap to her death at his whim.
Yes, Ed needs to be held accountable for his part in this mess, but it shouldn't stop there. Get the mind-fuckers and shot-callers, as you would with any other cult-cum-criminal organization. If the City of Chicago won't do it, then first the State of Illinois and then the Federal Government should intervene and put them under inquiry. This is serious, folks, and the consequences of letting it go on is clear and present to reasonable minds.
