It’s official. The University of Missouri has completely gone off the deep end. In an email sent out this morning, the campus police encourage anyone to call them “immediately” for any incidents of “hateful and/or hurtful speech.” It’s all part of an effort to “ensure that the University of Missouri campus remains safe.”
Well, this is an interesting email. pic.twitter.com/apMCbpym3e

Great idea. Because attempting to define hurtful speech won’t be a complete disaster.
Remember “1984” and the whole thought police thing you were forced to read about in high school? No wait, remember when you were a fucking preschooler and your mom told you “Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you”?
This is a genuinely sad day. The entire structure of Mizzou has collapsed under the pressure of political correctness — so much so, that the freedom of speech is now being publicly decried as a cause for police involvement and disciplinary action. But not to worry, I’m sure the police will handle each incident calmly and without violence. They usually do a swell job with that sort of thing.
Not only that, but if someone offends you on campus, it is now seen as an EMERGENCY SITUATION. Are you fucking kidding me?
“We’re sorry, Mrs. Johnson. We regret to inform you that your son passed away this morning of an asthma attack. First responders were tied up… someone called a vibrant, full-bodied woman a ‘fatty’ and she required immediate attention.”
Fun idea for the pledges:
Some heroes should hit payphones by Mizzou and flood the line with stuff like, "A guy called me a butt. I'm not a butt. I'M A HUMAN BEING."

I found solace in everything that happened yesterday by believing that Melissa Click and Janna Basler, the school administrators who called for student journalists to be forcibly removed for legally photographing the protestors, would surely be fired. But after seeing this, it is clear that the insanity at Mizzou runs so deep, justice probably won’t be served. Constitutional rights do not apply to Columbia, Missouri.
BUT WHAT ABOUT MY RIGHT TO NOT BE OFFENDED!?
You gave up that right when you were born in a free country. Get over yourself. Cunt.
People in charge at Mizzou, you guys are just embarrassing yourselves at this point..
