The full circle it seems - as the group he helped found, finally found that radical power to hire - and hired him! 

Meanwhile the professor who was squashing freedom of speech is going to get off with an apology it appears... 

I guess the lesson is protest and squash free speech - The University of Missouri is a joke now.

And Eastern Michigan students protested yesterday - to support the Hoax in Missouri.

WTF.  Support the hoax?  Do they know how idiotic that is?

Northwestern football players tried to use the proper system to effect change  (big 10 way)

Missouri football players got a taste of power going on strike to effect changes (SEC way)

Wonder how many others "Universities" will succumb to protesters control over the hiring/firing process at their schools?

University of Missouri is one of the top 10 schools for journalism in the U.S which makes the war on free speech even worse.

So, according to Fox news (gasp),ISIS has said, apropos of the attacks in Paris, "American blood is better, and we will be there soon". And nobody has said a word on this forum, or any other of which I am a part. Does that say something, or nothing?

I'm thinking France closed their borders - a little late...  and we have ours wide open still... 

Anyone like Trumps border plan now?

Funny how your free speech actually means you support blatant racism.

Ferguson had the "hands up, don't shoot" lie.

Mizzou may have the "hands up, don't poop" lie.

Like I've said many times before...the right doesn't know what a lie is...which may be why those gullible righties don't seem to mind being lied to by the conservative media and then parrot what they've been spoon-fed.

And Eastern Michigan students protested yesterday - to support the Hoax in Missouri.

WTF.  Support the hoax?  Do they know how idiotic that is?
Unlike your assertion about being religious...it's real:

(Cuss warning):


Fox News Outraged At Missouri College President Resignation

Students at the University of Missouri have been protesting rampant racist harassment on campus. The University President has resigned, and now Fox News is pissed.

Shortly after University of Missouri president Tim Wolfe resigned on Monday in the midst of massive protests about racial inequality on campus, Fox News' "The Five" held a discussion on the controversy.

Wolfe had been under pressure to step down for months, but things grew increasingly dire last weekend after 30 black football players said they would not play their next game if he stayed on.

"The Five" co-host Eric Bolling lashed out at the players, saying they deserved to be kicked off the team.

"I would say 'Fine, goodbye. We'll find 25 or 30 new ball players to sit in. We may lose the rest of the season,'" he said. "I'll take anyone on this team, hey I'll take the basketball team. You want to come play football? Hey, let's go and see how it works out."

Fortunately for the student athletes, their actual coach was more supportive.

"The Mizzou Family stands as one," head coach Gary Pinkel said on Sunday. "We are united. We are behind our players."

I'm thinking France closed their borders - a little late...  and we have ours wide open still...

No. The race baiting of Trump may appeal to his simpleton supporters with his talk of bringing back operation wetback...but with the difficulty of discovering the tunnels on the border...his ideas are just insane.

Not that there's any similarity to what happened in France to what could happen here.

Too bad so many on the conservative right seems to support what that traitor Snowden did since now the terrorists know how to avoid detection.


The terrorists keep it up and Trump will win in a landslide
I'm not sure why the ignorant are attracted to republican candidates...but according to the polls...Sanders would beat Trump:

And Europe is welcoming Muslims in by the droves right now.....

And we are going to take some too.
Nothing wrong with offering refuge to refugees...but then neither is keeping an eye on 'em.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

I don't think the professor at Missouri was fighting racism - but you can defend her actions however you wish...    Trying to create a press free zone is fighting racism in your world?

Remind us all again of the documented racism, and what police agency took the complaints  8)

The president of Missouri did no wrong to anyone.  But it's good he's gone because he is weak.  Not a leader of anything.  His response should have been go to class, that's what someone is paying for.  If you don't want to go to class then leave.

So you like Pinkel's politics - and giving away control of the Team which represents the University.

Not sure what experience  you've had when it comes to Team, but when you take it upon yourself to strike as a group - you raise the issue of control, and it appeared the Coach lost control of the team.

I recently heard Lou Holtz tell what he would tell his team about such actions - you are there as a Team and the team is there to represent the University - Don't bring your personal politics to the team...    He also encouraged players to do what they thought was right on their own - such as protest...    just don't make it a team issue.

It appears time to check Foggy Bottom for a gas leak if John thinks a cartoon provides rationale for murder.


Kerry sees 'rationale' in Charlie Hebdo murders, unlike Friday's attacks in Paris

Just what you want from the Secretary of State -
tell the terrorist they have a legitimate or rationale right to kill  :o

Nice message from the Obama Staff!   Goes hand in hand with the refusal to work in the removal of ISIS with other countries.

Isn't it strange that we had information on an ISIS command center to give to the French?   If the U.S. knew about an ISIS command center, why was it still standing?

It is reported that Syrian refugees are said to pass high level of security before entering this country. Correct me if I'm wrong... and I'm sure some will, lol... but wasn't the brothers of the Boston Marathon bombing refugees?
