Mizzou has turned into the Kent State of SJW activism (see Melissa Click, Disgraced Mizzou Professor Caught Screaming Profanity at Police and Mizzou Student – I’m Tired Of First Amendment Rights). The folks at Heat Street bring us a new incident allegedly involving a racial slur. And while the police body-cams didn’t pick up slurs, it wasn’t the one that allegedly started things…
“I’m not being peaceful no more,” the bodycam footage shows one student saying. “I’m not going to sit here and cry. …. I’m going to beat your a**. It’s not going to help, but I’m going to feel a whole lot better while I’m smacking the f*ck out of some ignorant white boy.”
The bodycam footage shows another black student saying: “They’ve got freedom of speech to say N*****? I’ve got the freedom of speech to say f*ck your fraternity for mother*cking mouth.”
Another student recorded by police’s bodycams said: “F*ck America. F*ck this broken-ass country.”
Watching the Mizzou bodycam, it doesn’t seem like there’s any proof of a racial slur. Which is allegedly what initiated this giant brouhaha. A word. Okay. The only witness (the one who played music on the speakers) basically gave a statement to the opposite effect that there was no racial slur and he just played music at a bunch of people arguing with each other outside. Right? In other words, there was already a verbal tussle going on when the guy with the music blasted the music. That’s when the girl started complaining about racial slurs and being called the N-word.
A) I don’t believe her.
B) Even if she were right, the cop was being very polite. She responded to his politeness by acting like an absolute banshee. Cuss words a-flying. But remember, she’s super triggered by bad words. It’s why she says them every other word.
C) I love how she right away tries to tell the cop “it’s a hate crime” while demanding something be done. See how easy it should be in liberal la-la land? Claim someone yelled a racial slur, declare it a hate crime. Imprison them. Ruin their life. Take them out back and pistol whip them.
No, I’m NOT defending anyone if they DID call her a racial slur. I’m just pointing out how much dumb college students legitimately hate/don’t understand freedom. Because here’s a radical idea: they’re words. Words, by the way, which actually are featured frequently in songs rapped and sung by artists of a, how should I say this… “similar racial background” to the students complaining about slurs. Could it be that maybe, just maybe, this woman confused the slur coming from a Future song instead of the guy playing the song? Or does even asking that question make me a racist? It’s getting harder to keep track.
Also, they’re words. I know I just typed that, but this is important. Words, people. Remember “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me?” Can we not bring that little platitude back into fashion, just like “people of color?” Words can be mean, sure. But a stranger screaming words you don’t like at you isn’t a hate crime. It’s not even a crime. Rude? Sure. A crime? Hardly.
Hate speech isn’t a thing. Educate yourself.
