A HUGE win for Conservatism as well as the Tea Party Community!
Assistant Professor Melissa Click, captured on video calling for “some muscle” to remove reporters from a campus protest site, was fired Wednesday by the University of Missouri Board of Curators, Chairwoman Pam Henrickson said in a prepared statement.
This is great news for the Conservative movement, as it shows that these Liberals are not bulletproof when it comes to accountability for their stupidity.
The board voted 4-2 in favor of termination during a closed session in Kansas City. The Chairwoman Henrickson and curator John Phillips opposed the move to fire Click, this according to information obtained in an email from University of Missouri System spokesman John Fougere.
Curators David Steelman, Donald Cupps, Maurice Graham and Phil Snowden voted in favor of firing Click. Tea Party Community plans to send “Thank You” notes to each of these board members.
The board earlier voted to suspend Click with pay on Jan. 27.
Chairwoman Henrickson said in a prepared statement:

“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…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.”
The statement from Henrickson cited Click’s behavior at the Homecoming parade, when she cursed at a police officer who was moving protesters out of the street, and on Nov. 9 at Concerned Student 1950’s protest site on the Carnahan Quadrangle. Her actions at the protest site, Henrickson said,
“when she interfered with members of the media and students who were exercising their rights in a public space and called for intimidation against one of our students, we believe demands serious action.”
The investigators hired by the curators reviewed videos, documents and conducted more than 20 interviews. In short, when you can get rid of a Liberal scoundrel in Wackademia, you know they have NO choice.
I want to commend the many people at Tea Party Community who stepped up, made calls, and were prepared to march on the University of Missouri, who unbelievably expedited this process to a great conclusion.
These are the types of ACTION ORIENTED issues that drive the Tea Party Community. If you have a similar issue where you want us involved, JOIN US, and get involved.
