Been there... haven't done that.

Well unfortunately Ann, if you go around ticking people off, stuff like that will happen.

I would like to see our lawyers all pushed off a cliff and a return to duelling. There is a growing majority of morons that think it is their right to insult others without consequences.

Might have been good for some blog hits if you had...

Patrick said...

From the article : I generally have little patience for protests where people presume to change the world with street theater — conducted in the safe confines of an already radical lefty bastion like Eugene — instead of taking the real risks required to effect change. As an environmental lawyer, perhaps Olmsted was fed up with idle protests.

Maybe he'd like Michelle Shocked.

It's not clear to me that the crazed Professor's critique is "from the Right".

It seems to be a hard-core Lefty calling out a bunch of comfy-chair Lefties for not having the gumption to do what needs to be done to accomplish their goals.

Jeez, Lenin did this kind of stuff in print to his Social Democrat opponents all the time. Kidz these days just don't know what it was like back when.

What an aggressive prick. Who gets that bent out of shape by a few street protesters? He appears to have major anger management issues.

People still use the term 'hippie'?
Right on! Far out!

You sure they weren't 'beatniks', daddy-o?

Sam L. said...

These protesters can't deal with mockery or opposition/disagreement. Apparently the perfesser cain't neither.

Another in a growing list of incidents where white liberals get a taste of what the future looks like for white people in the country the white liberals have worked to change us into.

Another example: Bill Maher.

Another example: a 58 year old white journalist writes a story about how difficult race relations are in Philadelphia. See him doing his apology tour...look at the look on his face as he is schooled by the black woman on how he is getting 'uppity' by thinking he dare to publish an opinion about black people.

This will be a trend in the decades ahead...well-meaning white liberals waking up to what they've done to us.

Eugene, along with other left coast college towns, is stuck in 1969.

I got a kick out of watching that fighting duck beat the crap out of that couger. When Mascots Go Wild!

looks like perfectly normal law professoring to me.

People who say shit like this really, really piss me off.

It's a good thing I don't go to events like that. Too many people who insist on having everything their way (definition of an asshole). They can't just speak their peace and shut up and listen to others. If an asshole like that got in my face, I'm afraid I would end him (and better the species).

amyshulk said...

I was wondering if you'd link this or not Ann Althouse! But I almost missed it, that's all you have to say?

bpm4532 said...

The guy in Ann's video and the college instructor satisfy the legal criteria for assault and thus would justify a self-defense action..

Rusty said...

PP in 1,2,3 wait for it............

Inga said...

Chip, don't hit me.

Seeing Red said...

The comments are funny.

The oppressed?

I wonder if the Guatamalens & the Hondurans say the same about the Mexicans?


LOLOLOL

As I said right after the "election", Constitutional rights has become a contact sport.

PS The Blonde can teach you karate (black belt), judo (black belt from the Kodakan), and marksmanship (dead shot M1, '03 Springfield, .45 & .22 pistol) if you're feeling insecure.

Remember, when seconds count, the police are just minutes away.

Nothing's hotter than hot blue-on-blue action.

and ...Lenin did this kind of stuff in print to his former fellow Russian Social Democratic Labor Party members all the time.

Yup, Mensheviks.

Bwahahahahahaha! Oh Lordie!

Bob Ellison said...

"Because you're a tall guy in my face." Great line.

YoungHegelian said...

@furious_a,

Lenin did far worse than to "print stuff" against his Menshevik opponents. They ended up converted (like Trotksy), exiled, or dead.

I was referring to his pre-Revolution writings against his "squishy" left ideological opponents.

GrandpaMark said...

Ha ha, the guy pushed someone and snatched a cell phone from a spoiled bitch taking his picture.

Therefore:

"Asked if any students would be charged in the incident, Weiler told The Electronic Intifada, “Absolutely not. The students were victims in this situation.” Weiler said university administrators had been “reaching out” to students involved in the incident to ensure that they were receiving appropriate support."

furious_a said...

They ended up converted (like Trotksy), exiled, or dead.

...or, in Trotsky's case, exiled AND dead.

furious_a said...

“If you want this country back, start a fucking war and take it back...Start a war, get a gun, shoot me first!”

With tuff-talk like that, Olmsted must be an Ethnic Studies-babe magnet.

AprilApple said...

I agree with Inga. (wow - that's a first)

Maybe this IS how he manages his anger. Do it your way....let him do it his.

:-)

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Note: I'm not saying that it is the right way. It just is HIS way.

Inga said...

DBQ, far be it from me to try to control him. That's HIS job. :)

The Jew is using the black as muscle against you!

Battling Betas. Ends in tears and hurt feeling. Also, the inevitable lawsuit. Enjoyed the contrast with the Duck v. Cougar fight. Awesome.

Lol. And where's his gun? A law professor calling out others for complacency? Why isn't he on the run, fighting the establishment with a gun?

Oh, right, like every leftist he imagines himself running the revolution, inspiring others to do the dirty work. What's sad is that if a commie revolution ever happens, these chumps will be the first against the wall.
