Student/Faculty Demonstrations and Threatened Team Walkout Hurting Mizzou
The demonstrations by the students and faculty recently have hurt Mizzou. The football teams' threatened walk-out was supported by the coach as well. As a native Missourian, I know this stuff does not play well with the folks in this state who are not used to being accused of racism, and they will make someone pay. The attendance for the first home game was 50,131. Some blame the teams' lack of success for this, but I doubt it. We had a lot of average years without a drop like this. I hope and believe this is a temporary thing. Right now I have never been more embarrassed. This cycle of demonstrations and violence will spread to schools all over the country. Saddle up...

No Medic it won't. Part of your problem is centered at the University of Missouri Kansas City Rolla. There is a left wing community organizing group that has infiltrated faculty there and I wouldn't be surprised that they have operatives at your main campus.

Most schools in the South would not have tolerated faculty causing those kinds of problems.

Your school is in a divided state when it comes to politics, and as a result your campus, especially affiliating with a sports conference that is virtually solid red on the political map, gave your left wingers something they thought would add to their protests.

If your people stay away from games because of it then blame your fans for being too cowardly to face it and deal with it. The leadership at Missouri blew the initial handling of the problem. Now you have to weather it, quietly get rid of the trouble makers, and let time heal the issues.

The SEC will give you the time, but I wouldn't be surprised if your administration threw in the towel and sought to leave for the Big 10. That would give them political cover for their failures. Most college presidents are somewhat cowardly when faced with an embarrassing situation. They think about their resume' and not what's right. Why? Because they are political animals whether people want to believe that or not.

Boren would be no different. And Auburn's new president is from Iowa State and I doubt he would stand up to anything that might bring political scrutiny.

What is right seldom gets done anymore because what we call leaders are really opportunistic chickenshits who always count personal cost before making a decision about what is right for the whole, and that's true on both the left and the right politically

But right now the donors, alums, and states of the rest of the SEC member schools would not tolerate what happened at Missouri. It is clearly an issue unique to Missouri.

But, on a side note, the overt political indoctrination of high school curriculum everywhere is sowing the seeds of civil unrest. I'm sure the powers that be hope to gain political capital from it for one side or the other, but the root of our division stems from ignorance of our roots. We accept anyone who desires to live according to the constitution which includes vouchsafing everyone's right to freedom of speech and thought and obedience to the law, and faithfulness to the defense of the common good. I can think of no greater traitorous crime than the sewing of discord in an attempt to create rifts among the citizens, who here, are to be loyal to no other nation or creed than the United States, and in support of our Constitution.

Yet through the whole PC agenda we seek nothing else but to stratify our citizens and label them as victims and victimizers. This is nothing short of an attempt to create disunity and provoke civil unrest. And yet our law enforcement agencies and our government turn a deaf ear and a blind eye. Why? It profits them somehow to do so. Our job is to figure out how it profits them and to hold them accountable. But we've been docilized by all of the other worries of life, and the feeling that one voice doesn't count. It's hard for one voice to be heard. But many speaking as one will be heard. That should be the endeavor.

I'm looking forward to COMO this weekend. Flying into KC and checking out a Royals game Friday night.

Wouldn't mind a low energy crowd Saturday night, the gamecocks could use a few breaks.

Our Mizzou fans across the state are not fans of this BS. This is a red state that Trump carried by double digits. They are angry at what has happened. The SEC seems confident that they are bullet-proof, and I hope they are, but the south is not immune to this unrest. The population, along with their belief systems, are migrating south. It may be a while, but it is coming. When the students start a rebellion, we will see what the faculties and administrations do. They are already removing statues in Texas, as well as other states not deemed northern. We are in the middle of a state flag debate in Mississippi. Hoping this all passes soon.

Medic your students were prodded into the demonstration. That's what an organizer does. This is all very political. They are attacking statues? They are attacking a lot more than statues. This morning on ESPN we had one millennial ESPN'er attacking the National Anthem. They have attacked Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee, Georgia Washington, and Thomas Jefferson too. They are attacking every political and moral figure in our history that they feel they can use PC to erase.

This happened in Russia with the imprisonment of Tsar Nicholas, exponentially increased with his and his families murders, it happened in Germany with the rise of National Socialism where it was Joseph Goebbels that coined the phrase "political correctness". Mao followed suit as did Castro. You must erase the icons of the past and control the education of the young to destroy the moral framework of a nation. In our case they are also carefully setting up the purge of the elderly if not in body, than in voice. The young I deal with are already convinced that when older people tell them history that differs from their teachers that is we who lived it that are wrong and somehow intentionally trying to deceive them as opposed to school books with an agenda.

But absolutely nowhere today are demonstrations spontaneous. They are planned right down to when to start chanting and who or what to target and they have to be to get the presses cameras there for maximum impact.

So yes, if we don't get real interested in what our children and grandchildren are being taught it will eventually become a problem everywhere. Why are people interested in creating unrest? Destroy the harmony of a nation and your cripple their ability to wage war.
