Because it’s “progressive” to be intolerant of opposing views.
During a pro-life demonstration at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), a feminist-studies professor allegedly stole a sign at a pro-life demonstration before attacking a student attempting to retrieve it.
The pro-life demonstrators, mostly from nearby Thomas Aquinas College, were standing in the free-speech zone at a demonstration on March 4 alongside large three-by-five-foot displays of graphic abortion photos before Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young arrived. Miller-Young, who specializes in black cultural studies, pornography, and sex work, reportedly led a group of students to chant “tear down this sign,” while saying that abortion is a women’s right.
After leading the chant, Miller-Young allegedly took a sign from the group of twelve young students and stormed off with the UCSB students she was with. Then, one of the 16-year-old pro-life demonstrators, Thrin Short, followed Miller-Young to retrieve the sign, recording the incident on a video currently in the custody of Santa Barbara law-enforcement officials.
