The Illiberalism and Irrationality of the Campus Left: Mizzou Edition

   You absolutely HAVE to make sure to watch that video from University of Missouri in the Chait piece.
   I haven't even been able to get through it all yet it's so angrifying. Now remember: Mizzou has a renown journalism program which has, at least at times, been #1 in the world. PC protesters decide they don't want a journalist recording what they're doing, so they form a line to block his access. He refuses to leave, so they walk forward, pushing him backward. When he protests, the tell him he needs to give them space. Some kind of adults then get involved, and start lecturing him incoherently about their right not to have their picture taken and their right to assemble. He patiently explains that the same amendment that protects their right to assemble protects his right to document what's happening. One of the non-students then tells him that he needs to recognize the humanity of the other students...something he's done nothing to disrespect. Student hold their hands up so that he can't see, and another non-student starts yelling at him. He raises his voice in response to answer her points, and a student then yells at him to stop yelling at the non-student...
   This is madness. Utter madness. These are the politics and principles that a certain sector of academia is instilling in students.
