Campus Free Speech

Melissa Click Rewrites History, Thinks She Was Fired Because 'I'm a White Lady'

Assault is wrong, even if the person committing it has a minor in women's studies.

Melissa Click, the scowling face of campus repression and candidate for least self-aware person in academia, is attempting to rewrite history in her remarks to an all-too-sympathetic reporter for The Chronicle of Higher Education

Click's confusion is such that she sees herself as a white savior of oppressed black students on campus while simultaneously believing that the university fired her because she was a white lady. She is also actively courting free-speech-martyr status, despite the fact that she repeatedly attempted to censor journalists and faculty members. Click isn't sorry; she's sorry she got caught. 

Let's delve into some of this nonsense: 

But while the video of her screaming at a student went viral, turning her into the Melissa Click, the confrontation on a quad during a protest here last year really wasn't that remarkable, in her mind. The assistant professor of communication at the University of Missouri was just doing what other professors and administrators were doing there, too, she says. So why did she lose her job? 

She has one idea. Under pressure from state legislators, she says, Missouri's Board of Curators fired her to send a message that the university and the state wouldn't tolerate black people standing up to white people. "This is all about racial politics," she says. "I'm a white lady. I'm an easy target." 

But if the university's actions were about sending a message to black people, why was a white person the only one disciplined? If it's true, as Click claims, that she was singled out because of her race, than she's really alleging that the university was too kind to people of color engaged in similar activism. 

In reality, that's not remotely what happened. The reason Click was punished, and others were not, is because she was caught on video exercising violence against a student-journalist. She committed a crime and was sentenced to community service because of it. 

It might be true that the university's decision to fire her was unwise, or should have been handled by the faculty instead of the curators. But Click was not singled out because of who she is. She was singled out because her conduct was maximally reprehensible, and she was caught in the act. 

More:

While Ms. Click acknowledges that she was certainly frustrated that day, she says she was simply trying to protect the black student protesters. Everything she has come to stand for since the video came out—intolerance, anger, mouthiness, and dismissiveness—is exactly the opposite of who she says she really is. Focusing on her behavior, she says, is a way to take attention away from the demands of Concerned Student 1950, the group of protesters. 

"I'm not a superhero," Ms. Click says. "I wasn't in charge." But she's taken the fall. "When it got out of control," she says, "I was the one held accountable." 

And not by accident. Click was held accountable because she committed assault. If her behavior is drawing attention away from the student activists, that's entirely her own fault. 

The Chronicle story also includes some biographical details that uncritically accept Click's I-am-a-hero narrative: 

While in Washington for a feminist punk-rock concert, she marched for women's rights, and became the first student, in 1993, to graduate with a minor in women's studies from James Madison. 

While writing her dissertation, she moved to Missouri to follow her now-husband, Richard Callahan, an associate professor of religious studies at the public flagship. The transition from Amherst to the Midwest was difficult. But eventually, Ms. Click found a farmers' market, she says, became a visiting instructor at the university, and befriended other East Coast transplants. 

She was passionate and sometimes annoyingly self-righteous, her former colleagues say.

Is this the profile of a woman who has overcome great adversity, or the profile of an intolerant ideologue firmly convinced of her own greatness? It sure sounds to me like Click would have much in common with the professor who wouldn't recommend a pro-gun student.

The last chunk of the article notes that Click is in rough shape now: People send her death threats and cast judgmental glances at her on the street. That's wrong. She shouldn't have to live in fear. She doesn't deserve harassment—no one does. 

But she doesn't deserve sainthood, either. She did a very bad thing, and her revisionist attempts to explain away her criminal behavior should be rejected. Assault is wrong, even if the person committing it has a minor in women's studies.

  1. “While in Washington for a feminist punk-rock concert, she marched for women’s rights, and became the first student, in 1993, to graduate with a minor in women’s studies from James Madison. ”

    The first and last of these make me like her less and the middle one is too vague for me to know what she was actually marching for.

    Attempt to make me sympathetic = failure

    1. She was passionate and sometimes annoyingly self-righteous, her former colleagues say.

      Apparently, even her colleagues are a bit on the fence wrt sympathy.

      1. Yeah, to norms she’s probably completely intolerable to even be around.

        1. This is Donald Trump’s most shocking statement yet,
          However the mainstream media isn’t saying a word about it!
          What are they really trying to cover up?
          http://legitorscamreview.com/the-final-bubble/

          1. You think the media is ‘covering’ for Trump?
            Hey, I got a real deal on the north anchorage of a bridge nearby, but ya gotta act fast!

    2. I guess her Carrot-top persona is no longer paying the bills.

    3. Especially when you add this choice nugget:

      The transition from Amherst to the Midwest was difficult. But eventually, Ms. Click found a farmers’ market, she says, became a visiting instructor at the university, and befriended other East Coast transplants.

      The tolerant left. So tolerant that in icky flyover country she can’t fathom dealing with locals, but must suffer them, and only with her fellow leftist east coast support group.

      Fuck her.

        1. Aside from the general douciness that’s what struck me as well.

          1. The comment, not the edit option.

            Seconded.

      1. Well said, Muzzled wood chipper! My impression too!!

  2. “Under pressure from state legislators, she says, Missouri’s Board of Curators fired her to send a message that the university and the state wouldn’t tolerate black people standing up to white people. “This is all about racial politics,” she says. “I’m a white lady. I’m an easy target.” ”

    Melissa Click: They wanted to send a message that they wouldn’t tolerate black people standing up to white people so they fired a white woman.

    Normal people: Wait, that makes no sense.

    Click: Sorry, I can’t stop to answer your racist questions, I’m on my way to a feminist punk concert

    1. That’s how you (the White Patriarchy?) send a message to the uppity negros in the 21st century – go after the leftist white women?
      I’m sure the Black folk won’t mind you sending that message until hell freezes over.

    2. YEP! Pussy Riot would be a good place for her to start. They actually know what ‘oppression’ is…perhaps, Click should add that to her Feminist ideology. Might balance her out a bit.

  3. Eh, she’s part right, in the sense that if she was a black woman, the odds are lower that she would have been fired.

    Live by the proggy victim stack, die by the proggy victim stack.

    1. She needs to check her privilege.

  4. Wait a minute here. Is she not one of the very people pushing the type of policies that would make her an easier target just because she’s a white lady? The irony, it burns. I love watching these sick fucks self destruct.

    1. Just be sure to stay out of the blast zone. A 2,000 mile radius should about do the trick.

      /looks at world map

      Fuck.

      1. Northern Alaska looks ok based on those numbers…

  5. I understand that if one panhandles on a good intersection, one can easily pull down $100 per day.

    Maybe she should try her hand at that? I think she would find it would fit her personality and cognitive abilities better. She might even make some friends!

    1. I realize that as a liberal, progressive, and feminist, this woman truly loves the poor and downtrodden. However, I have this feeling that she is not going to be terribly comfortable around the street folk.

      1. Yeah, I dated one of those. Except her area of expertise were migrant farm workers. At one point she remarked how amazed she was by ability to interact with them at some party she invited me to. Particularly, I had normal conversations with them, which blew her mind.

        1. Almost as if her and your sympathies really weren’t all that far apart, just – perhaps – you’d chose not be a conceited jerk and launch broadcast Force in every direction?

          It’s a hard road, but in many cases libertarians would be further ahead if we could show “progressives” that SOME of their desires of outcome don’t conflict with ours, just that ends don’t justify means. And to show conservatives that the results of the use of their broadcast Force creates WORSE net results. I really don’t know many people who want maximum pain and misery for the most people, usually it’s the opposite. At worst, people are sociopathic and they don’t care about others, not specifically wishing anyone harm. In short, most everybody wants the most happiness for the most people. It’s just too many people oversimplify our culture and believe that they have the righteousness to use Force.

          1. Forcey McForceface?

          2. libertarians would be further ahead if we could show “progressives” that SOME of their desires of outcome

            Libertarians shouldn’t waste their time. To be a Progressive is to move the goalposts.

            1. Move the goalposts and/or repaint the goalposts as to suggest and convince people they aren’t or were never actually goalposts, but something else entirely.

              1. “Do not try and bend the goalpost, that’s impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth…there is no goalpost. Then you will see it is not the goalpost that bends, it is only yourself.”

                ?Goalpost Boy to Neo

                #badmatrixreference

  6. the state wouldn’t tolerate black people standing up to white people. “This is all about racial politics,” she says. “I’m a white lady. I’m an easy target.”

    Wait, who is standing up to who? Is she a target because she is a woman? Or because she is white? I thought white people couldn’t be victims?

    I’m so confused about the pecking order here.

    1. Less thinking and more emoting and all will be clear!

      1. I can’t even emote my what through that. Am I angry at white people? Just men? I don’t even know who filmed the video and complained. I’m just going to shoot off self-righteous indignation in all directions and see where it lands.

        1. These euphemisms just don’t stop!

        2. Perhaps that she’s fucking nuts might help when trying to navigate her reasoning. Continuing to try, then, is more telling on you than her. Turning on ones heels and walking briskly in the opposite direction is called for here.

    2. Time to break out the conversion chart and try to use the term “intersectionality” with a straight face.

  7. “Click’s confusion is such that she sees herself as a white savior of oppressed black students on campus while simultaneously believing that the university fired her because she was a white lady.

    SJW narratives tend to bread this type of confusion and lack of self-awareness.

  8. She was passionate and sometimes annoyingly self-righteous, her former colleagues say.

    Damn…coming from her colleagues, that’s some cold shit.

  9. The transition from Amherst to the Midwest was difficult. But eventually, Ms. Click found a farmers’ market, she says, became a visiting instructor at the university, and befriended other East Coast transplants.

    This line nicely illustrates where there is growing cultural strife in America.

    Thank God she was able to find a farmers’ market and a bubble of like-minded friends.

    1. Right? And those redneck fucks out there probably don’t even know what a farmers market is.

      1. “”Ugh! You can’t even get decent GMO-Free corn in this town!!””

        1. I’ve lived in a variety of places. People don’t change that much.

          Most of them suck.

    2. One time I was sitting in the Asheville Airport, waiting for a flight. The wonderful people sitting on my left were from some Northeast urban hellhole, judging from their accents. They were discussing the concept of living in the Asheville area, and they actually came to the conclusion that they were “too sophisticated to live among people who were so providential”.

      1. Providential or provincial, or both?

    3. I see farmer’s markets all the time in my neck of Pa. It’s usually a pickup truck pulled off on the side of the road, pointed to by portable signs strung out a mile or two up the road.

  10. “I’m a white lady. I’m an easy target.”

    Huh!?!?!? What happened to white privilege?

    1. She found it. She had the privilege to be fired.

  11. Click was punished, and others were not, is because she was caught on video exercising violence against a student-journalist. She committed a crime and was sentenced to community service because of it. …. Click was held accountable because she committed assault….

    All this focus on her third-degree misdemeanor aggression against the kid entirely ignores other reasons that the University could have rightly had cause to fire her = She’s a “Communications Studies” professor with apparently Zero grasp on what 1st amendment rights entail. Her demand that the journalist leave the area ranged from ‘inciting violence’ against him, to making direct threats. Whether she’d ever laid a hand on the guy or not, she could/should still be dismissed from her post for being so woefully disrespectful to student’s rights, and/or having damaged the reputation of the school by demonstrating such a horrible misunderstanding of basic 1st amendment protections.

    insisting that everything boils down to an “inappropriate incident of touching” seems pretty fucking stupid, particularly when this subject has been covered over and over again.

  12. Melissa Click thanks you, Robbo, for the moments in your article where you defend her, she will not have your hair scalped during the coming revolution.

  13. She has a point only to the extent that had she been of a protected class, she probably wouldn’t have been fired. But the response to that is to not refrain from firing whites, but to fire everybody who does something that justifies firing.

    And why claim that the allegedly judgmental looks she gets on the street constitutes harassment? Are people supposed to avert their eyes, cross the street to avoiding passing her, or to adopt a neutral facial expression so as to keep her from noticing that they don’t approve of her actions?

    1. She doesn’t have a point though because her entire argument makes no goddamn sense. She’s saying that they wanted to send a message that they won’t tolerate black people criticizing white power structures, but they fired a white person because…a white person is an easier target?

      How can those simultaneously be true? Either they’re racists trying to keep black people down or they’re more likely to go after white people to avoid appearing racist.

      1. Racists are so diabolically clever — they have, like, 20 layers of misdirection going on here. But then, you already knew that, didn’t you?

        1. I can smell the dog whistle!

          1. ++ euphamism

      2. It’s called cognitive dissonance. SJW’s bathe in it. They become it.

    2. She has a point only to the extent that had she been of a protected class, she probably wouldn’t have been fired.

      She’s in at least two: chicks, and old people (she’s in her forties, the ADEA kicks in at age 40).

    3. Members of protected classes are allowed to threaten people?

      1. No, but they continually get away with it in today’s politically correct climate.

        1. All kinds of people get away with all kinds of things all the time. Maybe if she’d been black she wouldn’t have been fired. But I’m not so sure.

          1. Her odds of keeping her job would have been (much?) better, I’m sure.

    4. “She has a point only to the extent that had she been of a protected class, she probably wouldn’t have been fired.”

      Midget Ginger Troll-hag has got to be part of some protected class in SJWland.

  14. She’s no lady.

    1. -1 Tom Jones

      1. +1 Aerosmith

          1. Dennis DeYoung and Kenny Rogers unavailable for comment.

  15. “This is all about racial politics,” she says. “I’m a white lady. I’m an easy target.”

    Kay… now she just plain crazy.

    And not in the good way.

  16. While writing her dissertation, she moved to Missouri to follow her now-husband, Richard Callahan…

    Poor guy.

    1. Sounds like a stalker to me.

    2. The fact that she’s married is the most surprising part of the story.

      1. And doesn’t hyphenate. Who’d a guessed?

    3. I was picturing a pathetic, twee, beta male, pajama boy looking “man” just based on the fact that he’s married to this shrill harpy. I was not disappointed.

      1. “twee”.?. (mutters, “faggot”)

        1. Religious studies…

          1. Religious studies is the only one of the ten lowest paid majors dominated by men.

  17. The last chunk of the article notes that Click is in rough shape now: people send her death threats and cast judgmental glances at her on the street. That’s wrong. She shouldn’t have to live in fear. She doesn’t deserve harassment?no one does.

    Judgemental glances are harassment? I thought that was how we show displeasure with someone.

    1. So, Robby, are you saying we shouldn’t even look at each other on the street? Maybe just a “no eye contact” rule for people who are in protected classes?

      1. Judgement glances are one of my superpowers, that, and passing gas in elevators while successfully blaming it on elderly women. They’ll take my judgement glances from my cold dead eyes. Which oddly enough is what makes my judgement glances so dangerous.

    2. The Koch Brothers reputedly are subject to hourly death threats.

      1. Death threats and judgemental glances are not comparable.

        1. But this is a Robby article.

        2. RTFA:

          people send her death threats and cast judgmental glances at her on the street

    3. “Judgemental glances are harassment? I thought that was how we show displeasure with someone.”

      Only if you’re the uncivilized Amish.

    4. people send her death threats

      Transcripts of it didn’t happen. Public figures pull this one out all the time but journalists never ask for proof. If you receive a death threat, bring the police in.

      1. *OR it didn’t happen.

      2. How may of such supposed death threats are “I hope you die in a fire” or somthing along those lines? As several commenters here learned, public figures have a hard time distinguishing actual threats from mere expressions of disdain and juvenile hyperbole.

        1. Probably most or all of them.

        2. Like those people who have a hard time distinguishing fallen trees from woodchippers.

        3. You have NO IDEA what it’s like to be me!!1

          One time, I was on the internet and an entire group of people teamed up and singled me out to be killed. They even called me homophobic slurs!!*

          *Of no relevance at all is the fact that I was AFK camping an obscure corner of a counterstrike map and was the only surviving member of my team.

      3. woodchippers?

      4. In my early twenties I wrote letters to the local paper. If you put your name behind the opinion that Social Security should be abolished and that the military draft is never justifiable, you get death threats. I always figured that someone who would make a death threat wouldn’t actually kill me, it would be some fucker who wouldn’t want me to know it was coming.

    5. Death threats (assuming there actually are any) would count as harassment, I think.

      1. Death threats are certainly harassment, and judgemental glances (her perception of how someone is looking at her) are certainly not harassment, or problematic, or improper in any way.

        1. All my glances are judgemental. I was born this way!

          1. Same here.

            Why, at lunch I today I glanced very judgmentally at a woman leaving a yoga class. The judgment was one of approval, trust me.

            1. Chop top ride with metallic purple custom paint, bumping toons and nodding appreciatively at her downward dogg

    6. I suspect it’s the death threats that Robby’s referring to as harassment.

        1. Its ambiguous enough to give him the benefit of the doubt, if you are so inclined.

    7. If judgemental glances are verboten, then Swiss is headed for Room 101!

  18. (1) Self-denial
    (2) “Historically disadvantaged group”.
    (3) Evil e-mails

  19. “The transition from Amherst to the Midwest was difficult. But eventually, Ms. Click found a farmers’ market, she says, became a visiting instructor at the university, and befriended other East Coast transplants.”

    So as it turns out, she just can’t stand flyover people or their culture. I’m shocked.

    /sarc

    1. So as it turns out, she just can’t stand flyover people or their culture.

      Deep dish, Hotdish, Cincinnati chili…fuck, she would have been justified in conducting a campaign of genocide.

    2. So as it turns out, she just can’t stand flyover people or their culture. I’m shocked.

      Probably just as shocking, it actually has nothing to do with flyover people or their culture.

    3. Yeah it is hard to find farmer’s markets, usually they just sell their stuff by the side of the road. But you have to go all the way out to the sticks where they don’t even have farm to table restaurants or electric car charging ports. Gross.

    4. And just as typically, she’s actually from the middle of nowhere, SW Virginia. Don’t get me wrong…I love the middle of nowhere, and the people that live there. I find, in my experience, the least tolerant urban-dwelling progressives tend to come from the sticks. They’ll let you know just how stupid everyone there was/is…excepting themselves, of course.

      1. That’s…fairly accurate. Among the most militant, sure. However I also know a few hicks from the sticks who couldn’t be more ‘live and let live’.

        Regarding rural to urban transplants, some value privacy and freedom above all and some are desperate to signal to those that they consider culturally superior that they belong within their social circle. It’s a mixed bag.

  20. ” . . even with a minor in women’s studies . . .”. Well then, Robby, what good does a minor in women’s studies do if not as a “Get out of jail free”, excuse?

    1. It sure ain’t good for anything else!

  21. She should pull a Shaun King.

    1. Is this another one of those self-gratification euphemisms I’ve been hearing about?

  22. She doesn’t deserve harassment

    Yes, she does.

    1. No, she doesn’t. She deserves to be left alone and ignored.

      1. IOW, shunned.

      2. Yes, she does. Can I get some muscle over here?

      3. That’s the same as harassment in crazy land

      4. beaten with carp flails

  23. Better chance claiming Ginger discrimination.

  24. It might be true that the university’s decision to fire her was unwise…

    I suppose anything’s possible.

    1. Hah! Even tenured faculty can be fired for cause. If I was busted for smoking pot (illegal in my state) tenure wouldn’t save my job.

    2. In what universe is firing her unwise, and why?

        1. That ain’t no way to treat a lady, no way,
          To treat your baby, your woman, your friend,
          That ain’t no way to treat a lady, no way,
          But maybe its a way for us to end.

  25. “While in Washington for a feminist punk-rock concert, she marched for women’s rights, and became the first student, in 1993, to graduate with a minor in women’s studies from James Madison.”

    She just marched out of the concert?

    1. Well, goose-stepped, but yeah, I guess you could call it marching.

    2. They must’ve played a really long set.

  26. The fact that Mizzou employed someone this unbelievably stupid at all is damning to the university.

    1. This is par for the course at colleges today.

  27. Battery, in fact, was what she committed. And she was lucky the student didn’t OC her stupid ass in retaliation. Would have been fucking HILARIOUS to see her screaming her fucking head off from getting a blast of military-grade pepper spray up her ugly snout…..

  28. she says she was simply trying to protect the black student protesters.

    From those bloodthirsty student journalists trying to give them publicity?

    Her actions have far superseded whatever the protesters were protesting about, so she essentially worked against them regardless of what her intention was.

    1. You are crazy. You obviously haven’t heard about all the good she has done

      http://hotair.com/archives/201…..-ive-done/

      1. “…Will she lose her job? I suspect not, because Mizzou has its hands full with political problems as it is…”

        Well, look there. They tossed her sorry ass out on the street.

        1. Firing her was a solution to a political problem.

  29. the picture that accompanies this report just make me want to whack her across the mush with about a 5 pound halibut and then again on the backswing

  30. She was passionate and sometimes annoyingly self-righteous, her former colleagues say.

    Which seems like a nice way of saying she’s an irritating harpy bitch.

  31. The last chunk of the article notes that Click is in rough shape now: people send her death threats and cast judgmental glances at her on the street. That’s wrong. She shouldn’t have to live in fear. She doesn’t deserve harassment?no one does.

    Robby, I’m pretty sure everyone in the Post Twitter age who ever went viral with a strong political opinion has been subject to death threats. Doesn’t make it right or desirable, but in this day and age, if you go viral with ANY type of political opinion, you’re in someone’s metaphorical crosshairs. Remember how Joe the Plumber had his medical records all over the news 20 minutes after he engaged Obama in the street?

  32. It’s tough to admit you’re just a fucking ignoramus. Ask Jack; he knows.

  33. BTW, she obviously can’t spell “bitch”, either; her claim proves that.

  34. Two young men she passed near the campus asked her if she needed some muscle. She considered it a threat.

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    OH MAN

    1. That’s hilarious. Good on them.

      I mean, doesn’t saying she considers “I need some muscle” a threat, mean she really did threaten the student journalist?

  35. She shouldn’t have to live in fear. She doesn’t deserve harassment

    Let’s agree to disagree.

  36. On the topic of farmer’s markets: They are a luxury good and a status symbol. We went to the farmer’s market in Portsmouth NH a few times, until my wife said, ya know, why would I pay 3 dollars for a bunch of carrots I can buy at the grocery store for 79 cents. So that whole, “she found a farmer’s market” tells me all I need to know about Miss Click.

    1. I’ll overpay at farmer’s markets because I like to keep small independents in business. I buy a lot of stuff locally that I could probably save a few bucks on over the internet, and that’s OK by me.

      1. That is OK by me as well.

    2. Ha! Exactly! Farmers markets are more about signaling than anything else.

      1. Well, and tomatoes that still have some acid in them, unlike the generic red blobs at the grocery store.

  37. Melissa Click Rewrites History, Thinks She Was Fired Because ‘I’m a White Lady’
    Assault is wrong, even if the person committing it has a minor in women’s studies.

    The subhead is correct – but Click *was* fired because she’s white.

    If she was named Baha Mustafa she’d likely have gotten a slap on the wrist, a sternly worded reprimand in her permanent file, and then back to work once the media lost interest.

    1. Or even named Melissa Harris Perry.

  39. Claiming she was discriminated against for being white…

    Well, there go all her supporters.

  40. Since society now has a heiarchy of victimization, perhaps she could, in addition to being white and being a woman, she could claim being victimized for wearing coke-bottle glasses, just like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

  41. She isn’t much of a lady as far as I am concerned. She is a classless mob rule mentality waste of time.

  42. Ha. In the Disqus comment thread on the article, people were complaining about Click’s lack of due process. Someone said that especially non-tenured faculty don’t get due process. I said males accused of rape on campus don’t either. The moderator did not approve my comment….

  43. “?was just doing what other professors and administrators were doing there, too, she says. So why did she lose her job?”
    None of them should have been doing that. And she lost her job because she was caught on video and couldn’t lie her way out of it.

    “Ms. Click grabbed at his small hand-held camera?”
    Ms. Click assaulted and battered Mark Schierbecker

    “The media subjected her to withering public scrutiny, she says, making her recognizable wherever she goes.”
    Her actions that day, as show in the video, did this. She acted that way and should be subject to scrutiny.

    “But most of us don’t get to write our own headlines.”
    The video did a fine job of this.

    “Ms. Click took it upon herself to attract media attention to the protest. She posted a request on Facebook”
    And then she attacked and threatened a student journalist.

    ” Ms. Click was charged with misdemeanor assault for her encounter with Mr. Schierbecker.”
    That is the consequence when you attack a person.

    “When another video of her surfaced, cursing at the police officer during the homecoming parade, she looked even worse.”
    So her behavior is a chronic problem.

    “Ms. Click now spends her days mostly at home.”
    The start of a lifetime of regret.

    1. The start of a lifetime of regret.

      Bitterness and resentment? Certainly.

      Regret? I’m not seeing any sign of regret.

  44. So when is she getting her own show on MSNBC? That seems to be the next step for these types.

  45. More like fired for cultural appropriation.

    But it’s cool, everyone should be an ally. Right? Right!!?

    Have fun lemmings….

  50. There’s yer problem Click- yer not a Lady, And you’re a ginger. Everybody knows gingers don’t have souls!

  51. Her commiting assault is wrong, people sending her threats is wrong, but I don’t give a flying flip about the judgemental glances she gets. That is *her* fault. Actions have consequences. Something she doesn’t understand.

    As far as her claiming she’s a target because she is white, what about “white privilege” she assuredly espouses? Isn’t she openly stating stating that non white people get away with wrongs?

  52. PS, has lefty NPR even covered this Melissa Click stuff? I’m guessing not, as that goes against the narrative. ( I’m out of country on deployment…. Yes, I’m a warmonger Libertarian. Pull my card. )

  53. “The transition from Amherst to the Midwest was difficult. But eventually, Ms. Click found a farmers’ market . . .”

    When I read this, I literally laughed until I cried. No satiric essay could have parodied Ms. Click as effectively as she does herself.

    Now I know . . . the secret to happiness is to find a farmers’ market!
