Northwestern University, considered one of the top schools in the country, has lurched to the left in recent years like so many universities. Lately, a small cabal of radical leftist snowflakes has been increasingly running herd at the school. Last week it turned ugly with a “protest” causing not insignificant damage on campus and an ugly scene at President Morton Schapiro’s house.
I could have predicted this would happen. Appease the crazy mob and you get more mob. Although it took being personally attacked to get his attention, Schapiro, himself a liberal/leftist, responded with a blistering criticism of those involved.
Now what needs to happen is for there to be multiple expulsions. It is also worth noting that Evanston, where NU is located, is not happy about this situation. Businesses have apparently been targeted and defaced and protests have shut down the town’s business district. Not a way to “win friends”. It appears That NU and Schapiro are learning the lesson that Marxists mobs always come for those who have more, even if they are initially sympathetic.
