Dr. Dale Brigham, considered by many to be one of the most beloved professors at the University of Missouri, handed in a letter of resignation after social media activists called for him to leave the school. Protestors were upset with him because he had refused to cancel a test as a result of the protests, saying, “If you give into bullies, they win. The only way bullies are defeated is by standing up to them.” A number of students claimed that forcing students to take a regularly-scheduled test was racially-motivated, so he rescheduled the test and offered his resignation, saying that “I am just trying to do what I think is best for our students and the university as an institution. If my leaders think that my leaving would help, I am all for it.” Thankfully, the university refused to accept his resignation.
Dr. Brigham is just one more casualty of these witch-hunts against anyone who disagrees with the liberal agenda. These students don’t want a diversity of opinion. They want everyone on campus to either agree with their thinking or be forced out. These students need to learn that taking regularly-scheduled tests is a part of college life, not a tool of racism.
