Mike Huckabee: Mizzou Protesters “Never Exactly Identified” Racist Policies

Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says protesters at the University of Missouri never identified the exact policies they were protesting.

Mizzou students have been protesting the school administration’s handling of several recent incidents of alleged racism on campus. These incidents include the black student body president being called a racial slur and a swastika drawn in fecal matter. The university’s chancellor and president both resigned from their roles this week after the football team threatened to strike.

On his “Huckabee Exclusive Podcast” on Wednesday, Huckabee said the protests “supposedly started with one drunken student saying some racist things to some black students. That flared into a major protest of the alleged racist policies of the university’s, [policies] that were never exactly identified, other than the administration didn’t officially wade in on on the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson. I didn’t know that was their business. I thought there business was teaching young people to be rational, well-educated adults. Well obviously not.”

Huckabee said the protestors’ demands at Mizzou and at Yale, where there have also been protests over campus racial tension, were “ridiculous” and said in both cases the administration folded to the “tantrum throwers.” He added that Mizzou president Timothy Wolfe “capitulated to the mob” by resigning.

Huckabee concluded his podcast, saying, “I’m old enough to remember the sixties, when many adults couldn’t understand why students would pay a load of money for a college education, and then destroy their campuses. But at least they were protesting an actual war. Today they pay ten times as much tuition, then destroy their colleges’ reputations and protest over one drunken idiot, or someone else’s Halloween costumes.”

Amen!!! :D

This is an issue Huck could get some traction on. And no one can credibly throw the racism charge at him considering his record on race issues. These are Marxist/Leninist tactics being used at these Universities and they need to be put down swiftly.

One would think that college students would have some brains and not just emotions that can be swept up for whatever non-sensical cause - but no.......

Believe it or not, they do have the brains to know that what they are spewing is nonsense. But they are playing the role of what they think will serve social justice. And they keep getting indulged by weak authority figures.

A part of me feels like we should just give these college students what they want. They will then be even less prepared for the real world, where there is no such thing as a "safe place."

All of my children go to a small nearby Christian College, and they will be ten times more prepared for life after college then the average graduate from a a major institution.
