This Is How American Universities Will Look In The Future, If The Left Gets Their Way

From Powerline:
[T]he objective of college presidents…who face angry Black students with no sense of decency or regard for academic freedom is not to protect academic freedom or maintain standards of decency on campus. Nor, for that matter, do they appear genuinely interested in dealing with the causes of Black alienation on campus. Their objective is appeasement — to put a temporary end to the disruption as cheaply as possible. …
A precedent has been set. Black students can barge into the president’s office, coerce him into negotiating over their demands, and receive concessions, albeit mostly token. And they can do so at no cost…
The students and their successors will be back. If the “conversations” and “processes” don’t yield the results they have demanded, this will be grounds for a new occupation. If they do yield the desired results, the capitulation will embolden students to present new demands, backed up by another occupation. …

[Students now know] that they can get away [with] almost anything. …
[T]he only way to stop the rot is for some college administrators to grow a spine, and tell protesters that if they aren’t “comfortable” at Yale or Princeton, they’re free to attend college elsewhere. It’s not going to happen, though, because…on campuses these days it’s all about being comfortable.
