THE WAGES OF APPEASEMENT: Mizzou Protests Lead to Plunge In Freshmen, Massive Budget Deficits.

The fallout from the fake Mizzou protests continues to destablize the University of Missouri. Today the interim chancellor of the university emailed students that the university will enroll 1500 less students than projected and faces a budget shortfall of $32 million this year.

While the 1500 fewer students aren’t broken out by year, the vast majority of them will come from the entering freshman class. How substantial is the decline in enrollment? Based on Mizzou admission data from past years we’re talking about a potential 20% drop in enrolled freshmen.

That’s staggering.

Good. We need an example, to encourage the others.

And to spell things out for administrators: These were never “student demands.” Most students didn’t care or were actively hostile, but were browbeaten into silence — with some assistance from you. So now it’s “Irish Democracy” as people passively withdraw their support. If I were a Missouri legislator, I’d take that $32 million entirely out of administration, and lay administrators off en masse.
