Black feminist professor assaults pro-life student

File this under “Liberals are such nice, peace-loving, and tolerant people.”

California Catholic Daily reports that on March 3, 2014, a group of 13 students led a peaceful pro-life outreach effort in a “free speech zone” on the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), using signs displaying images of abortion victims to begin conversations with other students about abortion.

But the peaceful event was interrupted by an enraged UCSB professor of Feminist Studies Mireille Miller-Young. The professor attacked a female pro-lifer, 16-year-old Thrin Short, and snatched the pro-life sign from Short’s hands. Miller-Young then carried the sign off through the campus, flanked by her radical feminist students.

Police officers later found the remains of the sign, which had been destroyed.

Thrin Short is a member of the pro-life Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust.

Mireille Miller-Young’s UCSB faculty webpage says she has a Ph.D. in American History and History of the African Dispora from New York University, and is an associate professor of Feminist Studies at UCSB.

She lists as among her “areas of study” such profound intellectual subjects as “Pornography; Sex Work; Black Film, Popular Culture and Art; Feminist & Queer Theory; African American & African Diaspora.” 

Normally, universities require at least one PUBLISHED book for promotion from assistant professor to associate professor. How do I know that? Because I’m a professor who went through the ranks and is thoroughly familiar with university promotion criteria. But Miller-Young’s research and publication accomplishment consists of an as-yet unpublished though “forthcoming” manuscript, A Taste for Brown Sugar: Black Women, Sex Work and Pornography.

Another case of “black skin privilege” or, in the parlance of political correctness, “affirmative action.”

UPDATE (March 17, 2014):

We have more details of Miller-Young’s attack. According to Joan Short, the 21-year-old older sister of Thrin, Miller-Young incited her students against the pro-lifers, leading the crowd in a chant of “Tear down the sign! Tear down the sign!” before grabbing one of the banners and walking with it across campus. Joan and Thrin followed Miller-Young and two of her students into nearby South Hall. As Miller-Young and the students boarded an elevator, Thrin tried to block the door with her hand and foot. Miller-Young pushed her back, then exited the elevator and tried to yank Thrin away from the door while the students attempted to take her smartphone. “As Thrin tried to get away, the professor’s fingernails left bloody scratches on her arms,” Joan claimed.

The pro-life group, Survivors, is now pursuing criminal charges against Miller-Young. Read more here.

Here’s the video taken by the Short sisters:

UPDATE (Aug. 16, 2014):

Miller-Young pleaded no contest to misdemeanor counts of theft, vandalism and battery after stealing and destroying an anti-abortion poster and injuring a a 16-year-old activist, says she’s sorry for some of her actions and hopes to “makes amends through community service.” But her supporters — other UCSB faculty members — actually blamed the “cultural legacy of slavery” and “the effects of pregnancy” (Young was 3-months pregnant) to explain why the UCSB feminist studies professor would assault a teenager spreading a pro-life message on campus.

What is wrong with left-wing people?


Bob Woodward is a Washington Post investigative reporter and author, celebrated for his reporting, with Carl Bernstein, on the Nixon administration’s Watergate scandal.

To his credit, unlike the many Obama toadies in the media, Woodward has not refrained from criticizing the POS, most recently over Obama’s lie that “The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed.”

When Woodward contacted a White House official to warn that he would be publicly questioning Obama’s account of how the sequestration came about and the terms negotiated, the official (later identified as Obama’s economic advisor Gene Sperling) “yelled at [him] for about a half-hour”, and then made a vague threat, saying in a follow-up email that Woodward would “regret” publishing the report.

For reporting that thuggish threat, instead of supporting Woodward, his fellow journalists vilified him. Appearing on Current TV, reporter and Buzzfeed contributor Michael Hastings said: “There are people waiting for Woodward to die so they can dish stuff on him that they’re too afraid to say now.”

What we are witnessing is another instance of the viciousness of the Left. How dare Woodward betray his profession by criticizing The One?

Here’s an essay by Peter Hitchens (brother of the late Christopher Hitchens), asking why the Left are so vicious. Though Hitchens is referring to Leftwingers in the UK, what he says applies also to Leftwingers in the U.S. and across the world. Remember V.I. Lenin, Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, and the ongoing nightmare of North Korea.

Only Left-wingers could think killing and maiming is a giggle

By Peter Hitchens – Daily Mail – 23 February 2013

What is wrong with Left-wing people? Why are so many of them so filled with violent hatred of anyone who disagrees with them?

Why has so little attention been paid to the cruel, bloodstained words of John O’Farrell, the official Labour candidate in the Eastleigh by-election?

Mr O’Farrell, an alleged comedian, has not as far as I know repudiated or regretted a passage in a book he wrote at the age of 36, saying he wished Margaret Thatcher had died in the Brighton Bomb.

He said: ‘In October 1984 when the Brighton bomb went off, I felt a surge of excitement at the nearness of her demise and yet disappointment that such a chance had been missed.’

In case anyone had missed his point, he added later. ‘I just hated her so very, very much.’

I am not, as it happens, a great admirer of Lady Thatcher myself. And I’m not above a bit of invective and mockery against the politicians I actively despise.

But it is the hate-filled violence of this passage that strikes me. What kind of person can write this, and then not cross it out in embarrassment?

This is not the only example of this sort of thing last week. The BBC has for many years tolerated a radio programme called ‘The News Quiz’ on which sniggering fun-revolutionaries (at your expense) are paid to amuse a sniggering Left-wing studio audience with babyish jests, under the guidance of a self-satisfied chairwoman who thinks she is cleverer than she is.

On a recent edition, a purported comedian referred to the Education Secretary, Michael Gove, as ‘a foetus in a jar’.

This was the cue for an exchange in which Mr Gove was (very falsely) described as being friendless (I count him as a friend, though I disagree with him strongly, and so do many others in politics and journalism), and then as having ‘a  face that makes even the  most pacifist of people reach for the shovel in  anticipation of reshaping it’.

A sole Tory panellist, serving as a figleaf for the programme’s blatant bias, was swiftly brushed aside when he tried to defend Mr Gove. The BBC’s attempt to defend this malicious tripe is so wretched that I will do them a favour and not reproduce it.

In my experience, nasty, bullying people often attempt to disguise their true feelings as ‘jokes’. So there it is, the modern Left displayed – a parliamentary candidate who publicly wished for the hideous, violent death of a woman, and is not ashamed, and a BBC programme that publicly discusses smashing a man’s face with a shovel.

Both of these are supposedly jokes. But they are not. They are a symptom of a raging sickness of the soul that has the modern Left in its grip. They are so sure that they are right that they no longer think their opponents are human.

That way lie the torture cellar, the re-education camp and the firing squad, as the Left proves every time it gets enough power to show what it is really like. It’s not funny.
