CARE Now Activist Says “I Want Anger.” 5 of 5

Near the end of the rant, the black CARE Now students provide us with one of the greatest ironies in this appalling video; They reveal they think greater visibility of this conflict will work in their favor.

Amazingly, they threaten to create a video about their unhappy encounter with the white male students on the College Council. As far as I can tell, even their cowed victims seem to agree with their take.

I think this erroneous assumption helps explain why the College Council didn’t think it mattered if it posted this video on their Facebook page. They must have sincerely thought it made the white male liberal students look bad. The College Council only removed the video from Facebook after it generated negative attention and thousands of disapproving comments on various on-line sites. So far, the video has been featured at Anonymous Political Scientist, Big League Politics, Campus WatchEphblog, Free RepublicInstapundit, Legal InsurrectionThe College Fix, and Tea Party.

Start – 59:53

IB: Oh, you want to make it all illusion. Why do you have to tell them what it’s like? What?! (PAUSE) This is what it’s like. We’ll make sure to tell them that this is how it was.

SO: Definitely!

IB: We’ll make sure.

SO: I’m going be text messaging…one or two.

IB: We’ll make some videos out of that shit. Because its wow.

SO: Best f***ing movie.

IB: I just can’t…believe it.

Finally, this tag team of anti-white bigots rounds off their evening with the most embarrassing moments of all – the not so subtle humiliation of the black/minority students in the room. The aim, as far as I can tell, is to shame the minority students for not being as aggressive, antagonistic and woke as them. The controlling nature of this final exchange is cringe-worthy. Even IB seems to realize that he has gone way too far.

IB: You have anything to say Cleveland?  Or, or Shane? Cause you know ni***ers never get to say anything?

SB: I’ve said everything I felt I needed to say (Unintelligible) sometimes…the nature of council is just kind of (Unintelligible) questionable.

IB: Shane, why aren’t you president? Why didn’t you run president again? Why didn’t you run for that other shit?

Shane: I wasn’t… (Unintelligible)

IB: Cleveland, you got something to say? (PAUSE) No. No. Okay, because of you… anyone?… you’all got something to say? Does the minority coalition in the minority cove? Because that’s what you’all look like over here. (LONG PAUSE) That’s all right. We want to make sure we open this space. We never get to be heard. (PAUSE) I’m done. You done?

SO: I am.

IB: Okay. I hope you have a great day. Goodnight. (SLAMS DOOR)

The self-righteous CARE Now activists were so proud of their outburst that they planned to prolong their indignation by staging demonstration. According to a report in the Williams Record, they called off the demonstration after this video was shared on other platforms. “A larger protest had been planned,” the Williams Record says, “but cancelled because of student fears about safety after last week’s meeting livestream was distributed by several online sites.”

I think it is more likely the protest was called off because the student’s parents learned about their children’s behavior and told them to “knock the f***ing s*** off you dumb a** f***ing d***heads.”

Epilogue

Maud Mandel issued a letter to the community on April 22, 2019 in which she wrote:

I’m hearing from people throughout our community, representing a wide range of backgrounds and viewpoints, who are upset by some breakdowns in campus relations. Their perspectives are diverse: some are concerned about racism, others about a culture of open antagonism, and many about both of these and other issues, as well. The one thing many people seem to share is the sense that we have a problem at Williams.

A week later, the College Council met again – minus many of the white male students. It was so bad the College Council had a hard time establishing a quorum.

At this meeting, Bilal Ansari, the school’s first Muslim Chaplain and now the acting director of the Davis Center, addressed the student representatives. Reading between the lines, it was clear to me he knows Williams College would have been better off if these two black students had worked through existing black- or minority-run campus groups instead of striking off on their own.

To his credit, he indicated – to the white males who were not there – that he was there for them too. Bilal Ansari added, as far as I can tell, they had every right to push back whenever they are targeted with racially charged verbal abuse.

The article in The College Fix first linked to the original video on the Facebook page on April 19, 2129. As of today, an unedited YouTube video featuring the meeting has gathered over 12,200 views.

I don’t see how anyone can watch the full video and not see a clear violation of the student code of conduct. My question is will it be reported?

There is a procedure for reporting violations of the code which states “Any member of the Williams community may report an allegation of a social misconduct violation to the Dean’s Office.”

I think it will reflect badly on the whole school if no one reports this incident. It will be particularly unhelpful if these two verbally abusive students are not punished for their aberrant behavior.

If this does not even get adjudicated, then I think we will have profoundly disturbing evidence of systematic, institutionalized discrimination against white males on campus.

Why don’t you report it? I’m sure in some twisted way your vast intellect can make the case that you’re a member of the community, albeit in mostly egomaniacal ways …

… or does Williams delete your “posts” (the way you do with others you can’t handle?

So far, it looks to me like the administration is signing off on the student’s verbal abuse. One of these hateful, anti-white bigots is on the search committee for the Director of Dining Services.

By the way, I’m happy to leave up your comments. I just get annoyed when the comments include foul language or false information that might impact me or my business. I wouldn’t allow that nonsense in my classroom. Why would I allow it here?

I’d probably allow you to say anything you wanted if you had the guts to post under your real name. A lot of what you are doing now strikes me as cowardly.

If you’re going to hit someone hard, I think the least you should do is take public ownership of your comments.

Finally, it takes me a while to sweep through the comments. Maybe you should be content that they are up for a while and that I don’t close the comment section on my posts completely? For now…

The Williams Record deletes my comments fairly consistently. So does the CC’s Facebook page. As I learned three decades ago, there is no interest in protecting conservative thought on campus.

Maud’s new statement:

https://president.williams.edu/letters-from-the-president/our-past-current-and-future-work-for-an-inclusive-williams

It’s fairly absurd to lead with the main purpose of Williams being inclusion. Is that why anyone goes to college? Inclusion may be somewhere on the list – but nowhere near the top.

The focus should be excellence and achievement in all areas: academics, sports, leadership, community service.

But that would imply actual objective standards, god forbid.

The college has lost its way.

The talented kids ignore the nonsense and prepare to excel.

While the woke patrollers settle in for a lifetime of dependence and grievance.

No amount of additional “work” will pacify the true believers. Not worth the effort.

And the diversity industrial complex rumbles on…

To be fair, what she said was the “inclusion” was one of the “two… most important facets” of “building a healthier campus culture.” I’m OK with President Mandel putting it like that.

On a different note, I saw this section of her statement:

If you want information about what the college is already doing and plans to do to make Williams more inclusive, please view the summary that I shared with that group today [NB: the original version of the email linked to this page].

Can anyone post the summary referenced above?
