Controversial professor Melissa Click FIRED from Mizzou

By Anthony Gockowski, Campus Reform

The University of Missouri (Mizzou) Board of Curators voted to fire former Professor Melissa Click Wednesday with a 4-2 vote.

Chairwoman Pam Henrickson confirmed her termination to The Columbia Daily Tribune.

“The board respects Dr. Click’s right to express her views and does not base this decision on her support for students engaged in protest or their views,” Henrickson said in a statement. “However, Dr. Click was not entitled to interfere with the rights of others, to confront members of law enforcement or to encourage potential physical intimidation against a student.”

Click was the subject of a viral video last fall that showed her calling on nearby students to forcefully evict a student journalist attempting to document the public protests on campus, and while the public outcry led her to resign a courtesy appointment in the journalism school, she retained her normal position as a communications professor.

According to Henrickson, Click will be allowed to appeal her termination, which is likely since she indicated she plans to fight for her job.

The university recently hired outside investigators to review Click’s case after a video of her cursing at a police officer during a homecoming parade protest surfaced online.

“Get your fucking hands off me,” Click shouted at a police officer after he placed his hand on her shoulder.

Earlier this week, a group of students at Mizzou petitioned for Click’s removal and managed to collect 683 signatures in one afternoon.

“To the national spotlight, all we are is Melissa Click,” student Thomas Bradbury told The Maneater. “All we are is First Amendment violators. We can claim to be the top journalism school in the country, but as long as Melissa Click is still employed at the university, I don’t think that’s true, because that means that the university sides itself with disrespecting the First Amendment.”

Since the controversial videos were leaked, Click has done a few interviews with local news outlets. In an interview last week, Click admitted she “made mistakes” when participating in the on-campus protests.

“I made mistakes supporting these students, but my intention was to, like other faculty and staff, support a student group that was expressing that they had been excluded from MU, the MU community,” she said.

    Which goes to show that leftists don’t like getting caught up in their own Alinsky methods. After all, when someone tries to tell you that you are ignorant because they have a sheepskin, just ask them if they graduated from Missouri U. The message is loud and clear. :o)

    This POS should have been taken out to the dump and thrown out with the rest of the trash. If this is what is teaching our children, we are truly doomed.

    1. tedlv says:

      She should be charged with assault and inciting violence.

    2. curmudgeon VN Veteran says:

      She is mild compared with many at our finer institutions such as the Ivy League indoctrination centers.

    I wonder where that ugly little ginger troll will turn up next.

  4. Tiger says:

    May she go away never to be seen or heard of again.

    But then O still in office most likely give her a high position somewhere hidden in the bowels of his bunker.

  5. Good Start….but they need to Clean House of many in most of these LIBERAL PUBLIC INDOCTRINATION CENTERS for Higher Indoctrination…

      AMEN!

      1. As a Vietnam Vet…did you come back from NAM through San Francisco Bay and encounter any of the Protest Harassment from the Cal Berkley RADICAL COMMUNISTS as many of my friends who were over there did at the time…or at other times and places after you were back….

        1. curmudgeon VN Veteran says:

          Never had that experience. Served on LST’s and went in and out of San Diego. Flew back from Pearl once through LAX and there are a few idiots protesting there. They smelled bad as I recall and looked like refugees.

          1. Glad that you did not have to endure those RADICALS….Those you saw at LAX…were some of the HIPPIES who probably had not taken a Shower for Many Years…And had Fried their Brains on Drugs…

    Now she can spend more time at the Debbie Whatshername-Sh!tforbrains school of beauty. Don’t liberal females ever shower and wash their hair? I’m sure if you threw any of them in a pig pen the hogs would burrow out and escape. There are some things even a pig won’t do.

    BPR, when I click on the X to close an ad, and it jumps as soon as I do so, and I end up opening the ad, that is dishonest. Stop that!

  8. tedlv says:

    This ginger is Hillary. Vote Hillary in, we get this sloot.

  9. It's almost over says:

    Carrot Top needs to go back to being a stand-up comedian. He’s no good at being a teacher!
