Mizzou Bids Adieu to Melissa Click

The University of Missouri has fired Melissa Click, the communications and journalism professor who had never learned about the First Amendment.

“The board respects Dr. Click’s right to express her views and does not base this decision on her support for students engaged in protest or their views,” said Chairwoman Pam Henrickson, who voted against Click’s termination, in a statement viewed by The Columbia Tribune. “However, Dr. Click was not entitled to interfere with the rights of others, to confront members of law enforcement or to encourage potential physical intimidation against a student.”

Aside from my introductory paragraph, that pretty much says it all.

Now get ready for the student protests.

Correction: The University of Missouri needs to get ready. I don't.
