Obama praises Mizzou protesters, says facts are irrelevant since he can read: ‘There’s clearly a problem’

President Barack Obama indicated that he supports the University of Missouri protesters, who shut down the school and forced the resignation of its president and chancellor over an alleged racial slur yelled off-campus and a “poop-swastika.”

He made his comments in an interview that aired Sunday on ABC News.

“Without knowing all the facts, I’ve read enough to know that there is clearly a problem at the University of Missouri, and that’s not just coming from students,” Obama told George Stephanopoulos. “That’s coming from some faculty.”

Without knowing all the facts, he’s pretty certain the college acted “stupidly,” I guess. He can read, after all.

He added that in such circumstances, demonstrations are called for.

“I think it is entirely appropriate for students in a thoughtful, peaceful way to protest what they see as injustices or inattention to serious problems in their midst,” he said.

“I want an activist student body just like I want an activist citizenry, and the issue is just making sure that even as these young people are getting engaged, getting involved, speaking out that they’re also listening,” Obama told Stephanopoulos. “I’d rather see them err on the side of activism than being passive.”

Here’s the interview, via ABC News.

The murky facts that led to the resignations of the university’s two highest administrators wasn’t lost.
