Again with the imaginations. It is hard enough to agree on facts, imaginations are just off the chart.

 

But I can speak from my own perspective only and assure you that I would never approve college kids being used as cannon fodder for a radical "take it to the streets" reaction to a legal election.


Thank goodness that college professors know more about teaching than many posters here.


What does that mean? It sounds like teaching kids to oppose a Constitutional election via violence in the streets and the denial of free speech is appropriate to you.

 

Surely I misunderstood and you will clarify.


"Misunderstood" or 'misrepresented' what I posted? No need to clarify, what I posted is above for all to see and it has nothing to do with anything in your response.

There it is again - the "assume" game and the mind reading. Neither seems to work very well. But, you can vindicate yourself - cite examples of "many on the right" approving of such a thing during the Obama Administration.


Feel free to go through the thousands of past postings during Obama's tenure and show us anyone from the Right criticizing students protesting Obama (or any left wing president). Lack of criticism equals approval.

==========================================

Bottom line...Blackmail by a Trump hating professor. Typical of our Colleges today. Not the it was or should be. Not the way it was when I was in College.

Its amazing that anyone would think what happened is Ok...but it does show how our country has lost its moral compass.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Moral compass | Define Moral compass at Dictionary.com
www.dictionary.com/browse/moral-compass
noun. an internalized set of values and objectives that guide a person with regard to ethical behavior and decision-making: a rebellious teenager without a moral compass. Origin of moral compass.


rebellious teenager without a moral compass....not just teenagers



It sounds like you are describing Trump !!!!!!

It's been seen in the past - like with Nixon - panic and desperation often causes stretching into overreach - with ensuing results...

 All in keeping with the neo-Marxist thinking of the Progressives to put more and more people out there unable to take care of themselves. That creates the need of an all powerful central government to see to all their needs and make all their decisions.

 


 


Taking this from a handful of students protesting Trump to "Neo-Marxist thinking of Progressives"   and   "more people out there unable to take care of themselves"  and  "the need of an all powerful central government to see all their needs and make their decisions" is stretching it just a bit, IMHO. Smiley Surprised


Is it a stretch to wish our institutions of higher learning??? teach the academic courses versus having professor(s) whether right or left, indoctrinating their students in their political beliefs? This, a good reason why our educational system is in such a disarray.

Any student, who is absent from a class to protest, should be given progressive discipline up to expulsion! This includes students from the right or left-even though you don't hear about this shenanigans from the right very often.

They should be LEARNING not BURNING!

   Actually, they sound like pretty good students who actually learned something about HUMAN RIGHTS course they took,  as they 1) held a protest to denounce hate and 2) Developed arguments / talking points about current violations to Human Rights here in the USA.  

 

     As a "boomer" , I was given options about how to take some of my finals and if it was mathematically impossible to change my grade point by getting a perfect score on a "final", I could opt out of taking the final entirely.    


Same with me vis the finals..i didnt have to take most of the non math/science finals. The people "protesting" that these  students were allowed to protest, need to go back and check the name of the class. they final was in keeping with the subject. they were perfectly free as a group to go punch small women, but instead chose a real topic to protest.


When one's grades are very high enough throughout the year, one can skip finals and still get a high passing grade. perhaps no Right Wingers here had grades high enough to know that?
