Student SJWs, emboldened by weak-kneed Evergreen State College administrators ceding control, now casually stroll the campus armed with baseball bats. (UPDATED)
The fellow at front left can be seen in the second video below as part of a mob intimidating fellow students. The first video shows an earlier incident during which a group of “transgender goths” accosts a student for chalking nonsense graffiti they find offensive.
The 23 May student takeover was precipitated by disciplinary proceedings against “AR Rushet and Lawrence Walker III … two queer and trans disabled/nonable normative, femmes of color” who had disrupted several college events.
In the first video below, queer professor Naima Lowe has a friendly chat with white colleagues while the student takeover was in progress. In the second, Lowe informs the assembled crowd that all whites are racists.
The whole situation is queer.
Update: Administrators have asked vigilantes engaged in “campus patrols” to disarm:
We are aware of a small group of students coordinating a community patrol of housing and campus. We acknowledge and understand the fear and concerns that are motivating these actions. We also understand that these students are seeking to provide an alternative source of safety from external entities as well as those community members who they distrust.
Community patrols can be a useful tool for helping people to feel safe, however the use of bats or similar instruments is not productive. Some members of this group have been observed carrying batons and/or bats. Carrying bats is causing many to feel unsafe and intimidated. The bats must be put away immediately in order to protect all involved. Non-students participating in this activity are advised to leave campus.
Students should have been told they will be disarmed by police should they fail to comply.
