The rule of thumb is that every Republican is literally Hitler. Every single one. (Unless he’s temporarily acting as a useful idiot then, like Pat Buchanan on MSNBC or Bill Kristol at The Bulwark, he can be platformed and even funded, until his useful is done and then he’s Hitler again.)
Outgoing Senator Ben Sasse, hasn’t been nearly useful enough despite his opposition to Trump, to enjoy that kind of deference. And his attempt to retire to run the University of Florida is not going so well.
Sasse says he’s excited to step away from politics – Lincoln Journal-Star
Going to work on a campus to get away from politics is like going to work in Alaska to get away from snow. How oblivious do you have to be to think that’s a sane thing to believe? Ask Ben.
About 300 protesters took over a campus auditorium where U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse was being introduced to students and faculty Monday as the presumptive University of Florida president.
Floors shook inside Emerson Hall as protesters entered the building at 2:53 p.m., stomping and banging on walls, chanting “Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Ben Sasse has got to go.”
Many students attending the protest said they were angry that UF would hire a candidate with a voting record they said doesn’t reflect their points of view.
At least they’re saying the quiet part out loud. But these days, isn’t everyone?
Sasse continued to answer questions provided by UF Student Body President Lauren LeMasters, but found himself overpowered by the protesters’ thundering disapproval in the middle of the student forum.
“They have good rhythm,” Sasse joked about those chanting on the other side of the door.
As protesters climbed the stairs, their cries only got louder, prematurely forcing Sasse and LeMasters out of the ballroom. The open forum for students began at 2:30 p.m., but ended about 15 minutes early.
Student spectators inside joined protesters in the hallway. They continued their protests for 21 minutes before taking over the ballroom at 3:14 p.m.
I give it three weeks.
All this fire and fury is being directed at what is probably the fourth most liberal Senate Republican who is ridiculously mild-mannered and yet, as a student told FOX News, “poses a threat to all students that may be queer or non-men.”
Woke mobs treat liberals this way. And Sasse is absolutely unready for this party.
Protesters moved to the back of the building around 4:15 p.m. to try to catch Sasse leaving. Around 4:20 p.m., Sasse left from a side door escorted by uniformed UF police officers and was spirited away in a police vehicle.
That’s one way to get away from politics.
