Mizzou police to students: Report ‘incidents of hateful and/or hurtful speech’

mizzou1It seems that the University of Missouri has gone “full 1984” and is now asking students to report “incidents of hateful and/or hurtful speech” to campus police.  This, of course, is the same campus where a professor asked for volunteeers to “muscle” a journalist trying to do his job.

Alexander raises three very important questions here.  Of course, we don’t know what constitutes “hurtful” or “hateful,” but these days, that could be just saying “hello,” depending on the liberal being addressed.

Exactly.

Maybe a visit to Room 101

Maybe the school ought to consider changing its logo to something more appropriate, given current events:

Or better yet:
