A new video has surfaced of students this past week at Evergreen State College yelling and ranting about everything from “racist white teachers” and “white-ass administrators” to “black power!” during a so-called “meeting” with President George Bridges and other college administrators.
Apparently, the activists are not pleased that this recording made its way to the Internet at large.
One of the demands listed by Evergreen students, and addressed by President Bridges, is that something be done to resolve the “theft” of the video:
“We demand that the video created for Day of Absence and Day of Presence that was stolen by white supremacists and edited to expose and ridicule the students and staff be taken down by the administration by this Friday.”
Based on conversations with the Attorney General’s office, the most likely course of action requires an investigation. We commit to launching an extensive forensic investigation of the theft of this video and to determining who stole it from the student. If that investigation yields a suspect, we will seek criminal charges against the individual in consultation with the Attorney General.
Good luck with that one.
Here are a few, er, highlight statements uttered during the protester takeover:
— “FUCK YOU, AND FUCK THE POLICE!”
— “Whiteness is the most violent fuckin’ system to ever breathe!”
— “I’m tired of white people talking about what black and brown people need.”
— “These white-ass faculty members need to be holding HIM, and HIM, and ALL these people accountable!”
— “FUCK YOU [President] GEORGE [Bridges], we don’t wanna listen to a GODDAMN thing you have to say! No, you shut the fuck up!”
— “I’m tellin’ you, you’re speakin’ to your ancestor, all right? We been here before you. We built these cities, we had civilization way before you ever had … comin’ out your caves.”
— “You have the fucking nerve to, like, fucking dehumanize our (unintelligible)!”
Marvel, too, at around 6:06 in the vid the demands for President Bridges to put his hands down while speaking — a student even approaches him to “demonstrate” how he should do it.
Professor Bret Weinstein had told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson that the meeting with Bridges seen here was “believe it or not […] far crazier than the video” of his own (earlier) classroom chaos. He appears to be 100% correct in that assessment.
There may be no more apt description of this madness than what Carlson told Weinstein: It resembles “Phnom Penh in 1975.”
UPDATE: The actual video referenced in the student demands appears to be in dispute. Some are claiming the demands refer to undated video excerpts of Evergreen staff talking about the 2017 Day of Absence, which are taken from a YouTube video that has since been removed and has no known archive.
