Porn professor goes berserk on campus
http://www.wnd.com ^ | march 12, 2014 | joe kovacs

Posted on 03/12/2014 7:26:20 PM PDT by lowbridge

A professor of feminist studies who specializes in teaching pornography, queer theory and black film is accused of going berserk at a California pro-life demonstration last week, stealing and destroying an anti-abortion sign and assaulting a teen girl who tried to retrieve it.

Police are now investigating the events involving Mireille Miller-Young, who teaches at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

According to the Santa Barbara Independent which first broke the story, Miller-Young came across the pro-life display sponsored by the Christian pro-life group Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust on March 4.

Thirteen members of the group had posted banners and literature which displayed graphic imagery of late-term abortions designed to spark conversations with passing students.

Joan Short, a 21-year-old student at Thomas Aquinas College and a member of the pro-life group, told the paper Miller-Young exchanged heated words, complained about the anti-abortion message, and led the gathering crowd into a chant of “Tear down the sign! Tear down the sign!” before grabbing a banner and walking with it across campus.

As Joan called 9-1-1, her 16-year-old sister, Thrin Short, began recording the events on a smart phone, as the pair followed the professor and two of her students into a building to try to retrieve the banner.

The Independent report states:

As Miller-Young and the students boarded an elevator, Joan said that Thrin repeatedly blocked the door with her hand and foot and that Miller-Young continually pushed her back. Miller-Young then exited the elevator and tried to yank Thrin away from the door while the students attempted to grab her video camera. “As Thrin tried to get away, the professor’s fingernails left bloody scratches on her arms,” Joan claimed.

My wife at smc had a rabid lesbian for psychology. F Christianity, science is smart, religious people are idiots and so forth.

I think my wife's professor was the chair for that department, not just someone who was mistakenly given tenure.

They all need to leave the education profession IMO.

Maybe she wanted a poster to use in her class as an example of pornography. A baby pic “post Gosnell” would certainly qualify.

Dissertation: “A Taste for Brown Sugar: The History of Black Women in American Pornography.”

She was awarded a PhD and the title "Dr." for that. A committee actually reviewed and decided she should be awarded that prestigious degree.

What a joke.

The sad thing is that these angry, feminist bitches are teaching someone’s daughter how to grow up to be an angry, feminist, bitch as well.

There is no better description for the entire lot of that Feminist Studies department than BITCHES. ANGRY, ANGRY BITCHES.

I knew a guy who graduated Phi Beta Kappa (and went on to get a Ph.D.) who took some "women's studies" course as a "filler" when he was an undergrad.

I think when the SHTF these types will quickly become thralls/slaves to the more feral libs and I am 100% serious in saying the “liberal’ areas of the lands they occupy, what few there will be, will closely resemble Thunderdome.

Look to Bosnia for an example happens when the weak are left without the ;protection’ of a given system.

I’m looking forward to seeing them get hit with 100 years of Karma.
