    Students who helped shut down ‘War on Cops’ speech may face suspension, expulsion

    Students who helped shut down ‘War on Cops’ speech may face suspension, expulsion

    ‘Blocking access to buildings violates College policy’

    Claremont McKenna College students who helped shut down a Blue Lives Matter speech on campus last week may face suspension or expulsion, a campus spokesperson told The College Fix.

    Joann Young, director of media relations at the school, said via email that campus officials will review videos, photos and social media posts as part of a thorough investigation into the matter, during which Heather Mac Donald, a Manhattan Institute scholar and author of the 2016 book “The War on Cops,” had her speech effectively shut down after a throng of roughly 250 rowdy protesters blockaded the doors.

    Mac Donald ended up livestreaming her speech to a near-empty room as demonstrators outside banged on windows and shouted “F*ck the police” and “Black Lives Matter.”
    Young said those found responsible face a range of possible sanctions, “including but not limited to temporary or permanent separation from the college.”

    Hiram Chodosh, president of Claremont McKenna College, stated a day after the incident in a campuswide message that those responsible are “a large group of students from the Claremont Colleges, including a small number of CMC students and some individuals from external communities.”

    Claremont McKenna is part of the Claremont Colleges, a consortium of five elite private universities in Southern California, the others being: Pomona, Scripps, Harvey Mudd and Pitzer colleges.

    It appears students shared a “Shut Down Anti-Black Fascist Heather Mac Donald” Facebook event that rallied many.

    Chodosh, in his statement to the community, took some responsibility for the decision not to have campus police disperse the mob blocking the entrances.

    “Based on the judgment of the Claremont Police Department, we jointly concluded that any forced interventions or arrests would have created unsafe conditions for students, faculty, staff, and guests. I take full responsibility for the decision to err on the side of these overriding safety considerations,” he stated.

    “Notwithstanding these efforts to stifle a speaker, Heather Mac Donald was able to give her presentation to a small audience at the Athenaeum. We also live-streamed her talk. Nearly 250 people viewed the presentation live, and her presentation that is posted on our CMC homepage has already been viewed over 1,400 times. In the end, the effort to silence her voice effectively amplified it to a much larger audience,” he continued.

    “Blocking access to buildings violates College policy. CMC students who are found to have violated policies will be held accountable. We will also give a full report to the other Claremont Colleges, who have responsibility for their own students.”

    He concluded by saying the school will develop strategies to make sure a mob of students cannot shut down a sanctioned campus event again.

    Angry mob shuts down Blue Lives Matter speech at Claremont McKenna College

    JENNIFER KABBANY - FIX EDITOR
    APRIL 7, 2017

    See Videos at link.

    A throng of angry protesters converged at Claremont McKenna College on Thursday and effectively shut down a pro-police speech as they surrounded the building, forcing the speaker to give the talk via livestream to a near-empty room as they yelled “F*ck the police” and “Black Lives Matter” and banged on windows.

    Heather Mac Donald, a Manhattan Institute scholar and author of the 2016 book “The War on Cops,” even gave her talk earlier than originally planned at the preppy and private Southern California campus because of the rowdy crowd estimated at more than 250 protesters, she told The College Fix via email Thursday.

    Thirty minutes into the speech, police officers told her to cut it short, and she was given a four-officer escort through a side door and safely through some surprised protesters who had flanked that exit, Mac Donald said.

    The chaos came just one day after Mac Donald was raucously shouted down at a similar Blue Lives Matter speech at UCLA, but that one took place in full and with a Q&A in front of a live audience.

    ‘Shut Down Anti-Black Fascist Heather Mac Donald’

    The situation at Claremont McKenna College was decidedly worse than at UCLA.

    “The protesters surrounded all the doors to the Atheneum where I was supposed to speak, so none of the students who had signed up to attend my lecture could get in,” Mac Donald (pictured) told The Fix. “I was hustled from my guest suite by several police officers from Claremont PD into the lecture hall. It was decided that I would give the speech for live streaming to a largely empty hall. The organizers moved the podium so that it would not be visible through the windows to the students surrounding the building once night fell. We jumpstarted the timing of my talk as the crowd seemed to be getting more unruly.”

    Mac Donald made the argument that there is no government agency more dedicated to the proposition that Black Lives Matter than the police, and that proactive policing has helped reduce serious crime in predominantly black neighborhoods — but that the false Black Lives Matter narrative hurts innocent black lives as police pull back and violent crime rises.

    “Unless the false narrative about endemically racist police ends, we are going to see more black lives lost,” she said during her livestreamed talk as demonstrators’ “shut it down” chants echoed through the building.

    Protesters organized the protest on Facebook earlier in the week, calling it “Shut Down Anti-Black Fascist Heather Mac Donald” and suggesting she pushes “fascist ideologies and blatant anti-Blackness and white supremacy. … Together, we can hold CMC accountable and prevent Mac Donald from spewing her racist, anti-Black, capitalist, imperialist, fascist agenda.”



    Steven Glick, a senior at nearby Pomona College, recorded much of the protest as editor of the Claremont Independent, telling The College Fix in a message Thursday that he believes some of the demonstrators were students at the Claremont Colleges, but not all.

    “Several protesters were middle-aged, and some were students at other colleges. The protesters chanted things like, ‘From Oakland to Greece, f*** the police’ and ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.’ I tried to talk to dozens of protesters about why they objected to Heather Mac Donald, but not a single one could point to an issue they had with her work,” he said.

    Meanwhile, Glick interviewed a student who wanted to attend the event who said he’d had water thrown on him and had his sign ripped up by protesters.

    “All we’re trying to do is hear Heather Mac Donald talk,” the student said. “There’s pushing and shoving. It’s outrageous.”

    Glick’s job as a student reporter was also impeded by the horde.

    “Protesters tried to prevent me from conducting interviews by pushing me, grabbing me, and blocking my camera. Several protesters followed me around for almost an hour and formed a wall around me,” Glick said. “I was saddened to see that Claremont McKenna College was, yet again, so quick to give in to the protests and cancel the event. I hope that, someday, college students will have the opportunity to hear from a variety of different viewpoints on their campus.”

    Armed escort

    Mac Donald prefaced her livestreamed remarks Thursday by citing a few heartbreaking stories of young black boys murdered by gang violence in Los Angeles and Chicago, adding she hoped protesters were equally as outraged at those deaths.

    “And while the protesters likely didn’t show up to these scenes of carnage, the cops did. They are the only government agency that works every day to ensure that black lives matter,” Mac Donald told The Fix.

    Cops were also there to protect Mac Donald from the campus craziness.

    “During my speech, the protesters banged on the glass windows and shouted. It was extremely noisy inside the hall. I took two questions from students who were watching on livestream, but then the cops decided that things were getting too chaotic and I should stop speaking,” Mac Donald said. “An escape plan through the kitchen into an unmarked police van was devised; I was surrounded by about four cops. Protesters were sitting on the stoop outside the door through which I exited, but we had taken them by surprise and we got through them.”

    No one followed them to the police station.

    Campus response

    A campuswide email sent Thursday night by Peter Uvin, vice president for academic affairs at Claremont McKenna College, offered a wishy-washy admonishment of the day’s events.

    “Although 250 persons just watched the live stream, we are of course disappointed that people could not attend the lecture,” Uvin stated.

    “What we face here is not an attempt to demonstrate, or to ask tough questions of our speaker, all of which are both protected and cherished on this campus, but rather to make it impossible for her to speak, for you to listen, and for all of us to debate. This we could not accept,” Uvin continued.

    “I fully understand that people have strong opinions and different—often painful—experiences with the issues Heather MacDonald discusses. I also understand that words can hurt. And in a world of unequal power, it is more often than not those who have a history of exclusion who are being hurt by words. I support everyone’s right to make this world a better one. Questions about policing, police brutality, crime, and race matter a lot to our society. Yet precisely because these issues are so important, we must be able to debate them, to acknowledge that there exist different analyses and life experiences about these matters, and to listen carefully to each other.”

    BLM protests Heather Mac Donald at Claremont McKenna



    Published on Apr 7, 2017
    Black Lives Matter protests Heather Mac Donald's talk at Claremont McKenna College on April 6th, 2017. All entrances/exits were blocked by protesters. Those interested in hearing the lecture were not allowed in. (Usually these lectures are open to the public.) The event organizers moved the podium out of the view of the venue's windows, and Mac Donald delivered her talk early via livestream to a largely empty room. Protesters are seen shouting at the windows attempting to drown out Mac Donald's talk at (0:21). A member of the conservative newspaper on campus, the Claremont Independent, is blocked by protesters at (2:09).




    Heather Mac Donald is a Fellow at the Manhattan Institute. She has written extensively on higher education, immigration, policing, homelessness and homeless advocacy, criminal-justice reform, and race relations. Mac Donald's newest book, The War on Cops (2016), warns that raced-based attacks on the criminal-justice system, from the White House on down, are eroding the authority of law and putting lives at risk.

    Clairemont College Safe Space Racism


    Published on Nov 13, 2015

    Students at Claremont McKenna College in California who are demanding a racially segregated “safe space” for “marginalized identities,” silenced and embarrassed an Asian woman when she described how she had been racially harassed by an African-American man.

    The incident occurred yesterday during a protest against, “a lack of support from the Claremont McKenna College administration for students of color and others with marginalized identities.”

    After numerous other students spoke about nebulous examples of racial discrimination, while refusing to allow white people to speak or (initially) use the megaphone, an Asian woman stepped forward to relate how she was an actual victim of racism.

    The woman describes how she was walking down the street with three other Asian friends when a car pulled up and an African-American man shouted “go back to your home”. A “white lady” then parked her car near the young women to check if they were OK.

    The woman says she was “shocked” and “scared” for her safety, before stating, “The point I’m making here is we should not distinguish people by their race or gender or anything – black people can be racist.”

    The woman is immediately approached by a black female student who tries to stop the Asian woman from talking.

    “Racism is prejudice with power,” yells another student, invoking the debunked progressive narrative that it’s impossible for black people to be racist.

    Other students then claim what the woman is saying is irrelevant, while another student takes the megaphone from her.

    The conversation continues off camera, with students arguing about whether or not black people can be racist.

    The exchange is damning because it illustrates how the “safe space” students don’t really care about racism, they only care about race baiting and exploiting identity politics in order to obtain power via mob intimidation.

    See, what's going on here is not American. It's foreign. These are students from other countries who start civil wars, who over-throw their governments usually at someone else's expense, who refuse to respect the rights of others or their own laws, these are infiltrators. They don't understand free speech, they think erroneously, free speech is their free speech and theirs alone. They think that their rights are their rights alone, and not the rights of others as well.

    These are bad influences in our country and they need to be deported, removed, to every extent possible. These are wild-eyed self-centered bullies from other countries. Americans don't act that way, we never have.

    The greed of our universities and colleges has surpassed their ability to manage the monster they've created.
