Well, well, well…I just got some great news passed along to me on Twitter (thank you, @hrlyjm). It took me an hour or so to notice it, but luckily, I have some amazing followers that like to keep me plugged in. I’ll just cut to the chase: Melissa Click, the thuggish SJW professor from the University of Missouri who called for some “muscle” in order to remove a student journalist, has been relieved of duty.

Here’s a rundown from the Columbia Daily Tribune


Assistant Professor Melissa Click, captured on video calling for “some muscle” to remove reporters from a campus protest site, was fired Wednesday by the University of Missouri Board of Curators, Chairwoman Pam Henrickson said in a prepared statement.

The board voted 4-2 in favor of termination during a closed session in Kansas City, with Henrickson and curator John Phillips opposing the move, UM System spokesman John Fougere wrote in an email Thursday…Click did not respond to a message seeking comment Thursday. The board earlier voted to suspend Click with pay on Jan. 27.

“The board respects Dr. Click’s right to express her views and does not base this decision on her support for students engaged in protest or their views,” Henrickson said in the prepared statement. “However, Dr. Click was not entitled to interfere with the rights of others, to confront members of law enforcement or to encourage potential physical intimidation against a student.”

The statement from Henrickson cited Click’s behavior at the Homecoming parade, when she cursed at a police officer who was moving protesters out of the street, and on Nov. 9 at Concerned Student 1950’s protest site on the Carnahan Quadrangle. Her actions at the protest site, Henrickson said, “when she interfered with members of the media and students who were exercising their rights in a public space and called for intimidation against one of our students, we believe demands serious action.”

All I can say is, thank goodness the right thing finally happened to one of these anti-First Amendment goons. I had this to say back when the story first broke, in a column titled: The Enemies of Free Speech at The University of Missouri Should Be Fired Immediately

The whole thing is just a complete travesty. Freedom of the press is a cherished right here in the United States, and I refuse to let hipster garbage fuck it up for the rest of us. If you want to protest, fine. If you want to sleep outside in some tent city, all well and good. But the moment you start to act like jackbooted thugs by curtailing press freedoms, your ass is done in my book. If the administrators at the University of Missouri don’t act on this, forcefully, then they should be ashamed of themselves. End of story.

I want to thank these administrators for doing the right thing. Maybe now they can get back to the basics at Mizzou and move away from poisonous personalities like Ms. Click.
