University President Stands Up to Students Throwing a Tantrum over Hiring Kavanaugh as a Professor

Combined Shape

The President of George Mason University stood up to the mob of liberal students demanding that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh be fired from his summer teaching position.

George Mason University announced last month that students would have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from Kavanaugh, the newest member of the Supreme Court, as a visiting professor.

“It is a rare opportunity for students to learn from a Supreme Court justice and we believe that contributes to making our law program uniquely valuable for our students,” the school said in a statement.

Instead of rejoicing at the unique opportunity to learn from one of the most influential judges in the world, college liberals began protesting the hire.

College liberals from the student group “Mason For Survivors” objected to Kavanaugh’s hiring because of the discredited, decades-old sexual assault accusation made against him by a liberal college professor.

“As a survivor — as a student who comes to this university and expects to have a good education — to experience a happy, safe place, I am insulted,” GMU student Elijah Nichols told WDVM-TV.

It’s not uncommon for students to protest at every opportunity, and it’s not uncommon for university faculty to cave into their demands.

Fortunately, that’s not the case this time around.

George Mason University president Angel Cabrera told students that he is sticking by the university’s decision to hire Kavanaugh, according to HuffPost.

Do you agree with GMU's decision?

“Even if the outcome is painful, what’s at stake is very, very important for the integrity of the university,” Cabrera said during a university town hall on Tuesday.

The college liberals in attendance audibly groaned and gasped at the president’s decision.

“Oh, my God,” one female student said aloud, according to The Daily Wire.

Provost S. David Wu echoed the president’s decision, saying that he saw “no reason for university administrators to override” the decision to hire Kavanaugh.

Wu is spot-on — there is no reason to fire Kavanaugh because there is no reason to believe he actually committed the sexual assault he was accused of committing over 30 years ago.

Kavanaugh’s accuser, college professor Christine Blasey Ford, was unable to confirm basic details of the alleged assault and none of the so-called witnesses confirmed her allegation.

It’s probable that the students don’t even care about the details of the allegation — this is about politics. It would be ridiculous to fire anybody based on an unsubstantiated allegation from over 30 years ago.

This is nothing more than a liberal witch hunt against Kavanaugh, and George Mason University should be applauded for standing up to the angry, liberal mob.
