The University of Missouri’s freshman orientation leaders are besieging fresh-faced first-year students with a politically correct version of the Black Lives Matter protests that erupted on campus last fall.
As part of Mizzou’s continuous loop of “Summer Welcome” events, orientation leaders are presenting a skit which paints the radical Concerned Student 1950 protesters as civil rights heroes.
The College Fix captured video of the skit for posterity — the 19th performance during a run of 23 total.
“If you weren’t here, you don’t know what happened” one of the players in the not-very-imaginative skit declares.
“The students that led and participated in those peaceful protests and demonstrations were simply fighting to make this school a better place for all of us,” instructs another.
“Before we can be a campus that prides ourselves in diversity, we need to be a campus that admires, appreciates and allows that diversity to flourish,” pontificates another.
Protesting students “are being shamed because they care about the future,” bleats still another.
Other words from the politically correct lexicon featured in the skit are “oppression,” “hate” and, of course, “racism.”
Here, according to the Fix, is the transcript of the skit:
JAYLYN JOHNSON: All of those football players should definitely lose their scholarships.
DANIEL LITWIN: Mizzou? That racist school? I’m not going there.
KAYLA MYERS: There they go protesting again. Those students are ruining our school.
ASHLEY YONG: They’re all nothing but a bunch of crybabies bullying people into getting what they want.
LANDON JONES: Congratulations, Mizzou. You’re a joke.
EMILY HARTUNG-GILBIRDS: If you weren’t here, you don’t know what happened.
BRYCE BOGART: The students that led and participated in those peaceful protests and demonstrations were simply fighting to make this school a better place for all of us.
COLE LAWSON: Because before we can be a campus that prides ourselves in diversity, we need to be a campus that admires, appreciates and allows that diversity to flourish.
DANIEL MEDRANO: And a campus with oppression, racism or hate toward any identity? You cannot do that.
JASMYN BARR: We are not crybabies. We are adults who realize that we will face many adversities in our lifetime…
PARKER DONOVAN: …We have the power and the voices to change it here on our campus.
CHLOE GREEN: And by our campus, we do mean everyone’s.
MARTISE HARRIS: Our school is not a scary place to be. It’s a place that is openly working on its climate to liberate the students who are being shamed because they care about the future and culture of Mizzou.
ALIYHA HILL: So, before you attempt to give a summary…
EVERYONE TOGETHER: Make sure you know the story.
Earlier this year, Mizzou officials, had projected a loss of 1,500 students and the prospect of a gigantic $32 million budget shortfall.
“I am writing to you today to confirm that we project a very significant budget shortfall due to an unexpected sharp decline in first-year enrollments and student retention this coming fall,” MU interim chancellor Hank Foley wrote in a letter to faculty and staff in March.

The actual enrollment drop is now 2,600 students, according to the Fix.
In response to the massive loss of students, Missouri’s flagship public university campus has already cut its overall budget by 5 percent. There is no new hiring. Raises have been eliminated.
Warning signs about a dip in enrollment began to appear in the fall. In January, the school announced that applications for the fall 2016 academic year were way, way down. At that time, the year-to-year decrease from applications for 2016 enrollment compared to 2015 was down by pretty close to 1,000. (RELATED: SURPRISE!

Emails from the University of Missouri’s computer network obtained by HeatStreet show that the activists who led last semester’s protests demanded generators and a fire pit to keep themselves warm and cozy as they camped out in tents on a campus quad during chilly November nights.

In a letter to school officials posted (but no longer visible) on his Facebook page, Jonathan Butler, the affluent graduate student protest leader who set off the protests with a hunger strike, indicated that he began the strike because someone in a pickup truck allegedly shouted a racist insult at a black student government member, because state law prevents Planned Parenthood from performing on-campus abortions and because someone drew a swastika with human feces in a dormitory bathroom.

In May, Mizzou announced that an ad hoc committee had finally realized that the school could have avoided its still-reverberating nationwide humiliation if officials would have enforced a policy that has been in existence for decades.
