Consequences! College doles out serious punishment for snowflakes who stopped pro-police speaker

Sanity is returning to at least one US college which decided to take a stand against leftist students.

Claremont McKenna College proved it was not going to cave in to snowflakes on campus and disciplined several students for blocking an audience from hearing author Heather Mac Donald in April.

The California college announced disciplinary measures against seven students for their part in the blockade to prevent Mac Donald from speaking because they disagreed with her pro-police views.

In a statement, Claremont McKenna said:

On the evening of April 6, a group of approximately 170 individuals from the Claremont Colleges and others outside our community organized, led, and executed a blockade of the Athenaeum and the Kravis Center. They breached the perimeter safety and security fence and campus safety line, and established human barriers to entrances and exits. These actions deprived many of the opportunity to gather, hear the speaker, and engage with questions and comments.

The blockade breached institutional values of freedom of expression and assembly. Furthermore, this action violated policies of both the College and The Claremont Colleges that prohibit material disruption of college programs and created unsafe conditions in disregard of state law.

 

Three of the students disciplined received one-year suspensions, two received one-semester suspensions and the other two were put on conduct probation. Deans at other Claremont campuses were given the violations evidence of their students and asked to review the information. The on-campus privileges to four non-CMC students who were part of the mob were also suspended.

Mac Donald was unable to deliver her speech in person in April amid the blockade by those who called her pro-police anti- Black Lives Matter stance racist. She ended up live-streaming her talk after the protesters robbed her of her right to free speech – as well as the rights of those students who wanted to her Mac Donald.

And while the college did not deny the protesting students had a right to exercise their own free speech, they noted the students violated college policy which prohibits disturbing or hindering normal functions at the institution.

Hopefully Claremont McKenna’s strong actions send a clear warning to snowflakes who wish to shut down any discourse they disagree with in the future. Maybe other US colleges overrun by leftists will also get the message.
