Anybody remember remember the Mizzou Saga? As in the University of Missouri? As in the place where idiocy transpired in 2015, catapulting revolting SJWs like Melissa Click and Jonathan Butler into the national spotlight as the school became an epicenter of BLM retardation? If you’re a regular of this blog, I’m sure you do.

It turned out that the prospect of enrolling in a college that not only allowed, but in some cases encouraged, so many insufferable hooligans to constantly run amok wasn’t very appealing to prospective students. In 2016, freshmen enrollment declined by 20% and the school faced a $32 million deficit as a result. What remained to be seen was whether the worst of the damage was done or if it simply marked the beginning of a downward trend toward a total implosion.

As of May 2017, it seems safe to say it’s turning out to be the latter. This year, Mizzou is facing another $31 million in budget cuts and they’ve already announced they’re laying off twenty administrative personnel, as well as eliminating the positions previously held by five more who are “retiring” this year. Some of this shortfall is apparently as a result of Missouri’s new Republican governor, Eric Greitens, withholding funds from the institution in the hardball approach he’s taking as he attempts to clean the place up.

Greitens had this to say about Mizzou a few months ago:

“Our state has excellent students, talented teachers, and a people committed to education. There are also many areas where higher education can be improved. We can encourage more intellectual diversity and become the best state in the country at preparing students for rewarding careers.”

Reading between the lines, it sounds like he intends to demolish the hugbox and make the place an effective institution of higher learning, thereby making a Mizzou diploma respectable once again. With most of the gubernatorial appointees in the school’s power structure having reached their term limits or having resigned following the shitstorm the school’s faculty brought upon themselves through their enabling of various crybullies, Governor Greitens has been in the position to completely stack the Mizzou Board of Curators.

However, even with necessary reforms, salvaging the school will still be an uphill battle. Enrollment dropped once again this year, this time by 24%. The announced layoffs in the administration are expected to only be the the first in multiple rounds. And because the budgetary shortfalls are cutting into the institution’s core functionality, tuition hikes are being pursued as a solution. At the same time, dormitories with a total combined capacity for housing about 1,500 students are being closed this year. Layoffs are expected in areas regarding the university’s powerplant, “sustainability operations”, parking, transportation, laboratory chemical handling and the campus police.

It all paints a pretty bleak picture when you think about it. If you go to Mizzou now, you’ll supposedly pay higher than market tuition to arrive at a place where you can’t park, where you can’t get a bus to class, where you therefore have to walk past dormant dormitories likely to attract vandals and squatters, where you then get stabbed by a hidden hobo in the dark and bleed to death because the street lamp was off from having no electricity and no police were around to shoot the hobo. Oh well, your classroom already burned down anyway because there was nobody in the laboratory who knew not to mix the alodine and isopropyl alcohol in the same hazmat container or keep organic compounds away from the oxygen fittings.

The problem Mizzou faces at this point is obvious. Their brand has been horribly tarnished through the aggressive stupidity and malice of both it’s faculty and student body. Mizzou will struggle to make enough money to function, let alone fix itself, even if the new regime handles things properly. For now, Mizzou still represents another sad lesson in how SJWs will infiltrate, subvert, and destroy your business or institution if you allow them to….as the invisible hand of the market inevitably forms a fist and then repeatedly rams that fist right into your face.

  1. No way in hell would I go to Mizzou after that circus. The most tenured staff who allowed the Black Lives Matter nonsense to flourish will be able to weather the storm and will remain there for years to come. Fuck that noise.

    1. That’s just it. The lunatic professors, who should be shown the door, and who draw the largest salaries, are being kept on, while the lowly support staff, who don’t command such wages, are being told to pound the pavement. It’s an ass-backwards way of trying to fix the situation.

      The SJWs fake concern for the disadvantaged, but when push comes to shove, they cover their own asses first. It boils down to Thucydides’ observation: “the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must”.

    1. My condolences. However, if you got a diploma for something of actual value, ie, mechanical, medical, I know you’ll be fine.

  2. That Eric Greitens guy is a real character, he’s like an absurd Mary Sue point of view protagonist from a John Ringo military scifi novel come to life.

  3. Not heard much about #NotAllBlackLivesMatter since Trump got elected I wonder what they’ve been up to lately

    Guess the only true way to cripple SJW’s and their enablers is to cut off their funding since they have to rely on money to keep the old agenda going

    1. The other is to just suck all the air out of the room. I’ve noticed that every single time I walk past a tv with cable news running on it that they’re talking about Trump or something related to Trump. BLM fed on constant media coverage of both it and every police shooting of a violent black criminal, encouragement from the Obama regime and a twitter that was still semi-usable.

      No funding plus no attention make BLM go bye bye and the MSM was probably eager to just let it vanish down the memory hole after what a colossal embarrassment it became for them and after the body count it had started to generate. It also failed in the key mission it’s financial backers obviously had in mind which was mobilizing an Obama level turnout black vote for Shillary in the South, if anything it only further mobilized a white working and middle class backlash instead.

      1. Trump’s win was a big slap in the face to black racists and the cop haters. I just love it that Trump supports LEO bigly, it’s a huge rebuke to cop hater Obama and all his non compliant sons.

        Add to that, the arrest of all those protesters at the inauguration, and other protests like in Portland over the weekend, is evidence that Trump’s support of LEO emboldens them to take the proper action to protect lives and property.

        Obama’s legacy of giving the rioting criminals a lift will not be forgotten.

    2. Black Lives Matter has just merged with the rest of their radical left-wing pals in Antifa.

  4. “Oh well, your classroom already burned down anyway because there was
    nobody in the laboratory who knew not to mix the alodine and isopropyl
    alcohol in the same hazmat container or keep organic compounds away from
    the oxygen fittings.”

    Or, more likely, the classroom was already burned down by the “peaceful protestors”.

  5. Defunding universities so that they close down all subjects ending with “Studies” is the correct approach to get rid of the SJW madness, but Mizzou is beyond redemption. As the article stated their brand is destroyed and I can’t see them recovering from it. They should be an example of other universities who allow progressive politics to interfere with the education.

  6. /laugh

    Social Justice wrecks everything. It does not create, it infects, plunders, replicates and then moves on once the host is dying.

  7. When things came to a tipping point and policy was set by the football team threatening to not play the week end game,… I knew that Mizzou was done for. The lunatics were running the asylum.

  8. Defund the ‘gender studies’ and ‘Communications’ departments. Why should the state fund recruitment, indoctrination, and activist centers for Marxists?

  9. Lets not forget when they let BLM dominate an event dedicated to mourning the Orlando shooting victims in order to push their bs rhetoric. “I know youre all upset that your family or friends died, but you still have white privilege…”

  10. Don’t forget that Berkeley is following in their footsteps. And people think I’m an idiot for not wanting to attend colleges.

  11. The goal of the Left was always to destroy our institutions and culture by taking positions of power within them and infecting the body with their mind virus. They don’t expect most people to believe what they believe, the want normal people to avoid going to college entirely so that no one is qualified to work at any occupation other than menial part time jobs. After the economy collapses, the now poor middle class will beg for Communism and these infiltrators will be the only ones left with the “qualifications” to be in charge.

    1. If so their plan is doomed, if it proceeds along the course you suggest they’ll only be rounded up and slaughtered by a movement of vengeful second-wave fascists who will coalesce in and emerge from the blue and green collar worlds.

      Today’s Western social and cultural environment is probably the worst one to try and pull a communist revolution in to date because of the willing recruitment pool they’re dealing with. Long gone are the days when they’d have hordes of wiry factory workers hardened by years of soul crushing repetitive work in grim environs, today’s communist recruits are Kayla the Barista and her beta orbiters.

        1. Personally I’d hoped to avoid it all. This escalating period of madness will only dump us all into an even grimmer period of cynical brutality and while I can’t actually pinpoint where the point of no return was I’m 99% sure we passed it some time back.
