Campus Police Could Not Guarantee Professor’s Safety

Last May, police at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington told one of their professors, Bret Weinstein, that they could not guarantee his safety at the school, so he had to hold his class off-campus. “I have been told by the chief of police it’s not safe for me to be on campus.” Instead, Weinstein gathered with his biology students in a downtown Olympia park.

Well, not only is this issue worth revisiting in light of the continuing campus violence across the country, but also, Professor Weinstein is back in the news as the college recently announced a half-million-dollar settlement paid to Weinstein and his wife Heather Heying, a fellow Evergreen professor. Sadly, even this Evergreen farce wasn’t enough to stem the national tide of leftist “resistance” to respectful academic and political discourse.
