In an ironic occurrence, a white leftist biology professor at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, who objected to leftist student social justice warriors demanding white students and professors leave the campus, was surrounded by the SJWs, who shouted at him that he should be fired or resign.
Bret Weinstein was sympathetic to the SJWs in the past when they urged black and Latino students to boycott classes on their “Day of Absence.” But this year, the students went farther, demanding that all white human beings leave the campus instead.
That prompted Weinstein to issue an email in which he demurred, and encouraged other white people to do the same.
Here’s the email:
Note that Weinstein sympathized with the protesters’ claim that they were “under-appreciated” before he protested that what they demanded this year was beyond the pale.
The SJWs decided Weinstein’s email was racist; they protested for two days. On Tuesday morning, Weinstein was yelled at by dozens of students.
Here’s a video of their ranting at him, even while he was trying to have a civil discussion:
Weinstein told The Washington Times that things were “out of control at Evergreen ... Police told me protesters stopped cars yesterday, demanding information about occupants. They believe I was being sought. It appears that the campus has been under the effective control of protesters since 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. Police are on lockdown, hamstrung by the college administration. Students, staff and faculty are not safe.”
According to King5, Weinstein held his Thursday class at a downtown Olympia park. He said, “I have been told by the Chief of Police it’s not safe for me to be on campus.” A college administrator confirmed the police department told Weinstein it “might be best to stay off campus for a day or so.”
One student, Marissa Parker, who protested against Weinstein, said, “If he feels unsafe or frightened for two days, he can only imagine what black and brown bodies have feared for years.”
