And they say the Civil Rights movement is dead.
Forget segregation, the greatest racial threat to minorities in Indiana is posed by cast members from The Office. And at DePauw University, angry social justice crybullies vowed that there would be no peace until every Office cast member is prevented from speaking.
Jenna Fischer was speaking during the Ubben Lecture Series at DePauw University when protesters said they blew a whistle and had students scatter across the room, according to FOX59 Indiana. The students stood up saying “I am not safe” and some held a banner, which read: “#DePauwKKK.”
Social justice crybullies being the whinging cretins that they are, you know this was motivated by some very serious stuff.
The demonstration came after a string of racial incidents on campus. A racist threat was discovered in a restroom at a university events center, and a homophobic and anti-Semitic scrawling was found in a separate bathroom on campus. Meanwhile, a student engaged in "offensive behavior” at a nearby bar, and a racial slur was also formed by rocks at a park. There had been one more incident before Fischer’s lecture, according to FOX59.
That's three graffiti incidents. And whatever in a bar. It's so "un-safe". It's like the KKK.
This is just like the Civil Rights movement if it were really stupid.
What does an actress from a faded TV show have to do with anything? Maybe she arranged the rocks? Or maybe this is a good way to get publicity at the tail, tail end of a lecture series.
Past speakers have included Bill Clinton, Margaret Thatcher, Jimmy Kimmel, Jane Goodall, Elie Wiesel, David Cameron, Leslie Odom Jr., Tony Blair, Benazir Bhutto, Jesse Jackson, Mikhail Gorbachev, Peyton Manning and Spike Lee.
Some of these are not like the others.
April 17 brought actress Jenna Fischer -- award-winning star of The Office and author of The Actor’s Life: A Survival Guide -- to DePauw.
Fischer hasn't been on The Office since it went to permanent reruns in 2013.
"In my personal opinion, oftentimes justice requires disruption and interruption of our scheduled lives," she told the audience, according to the Indy Star. "I don't know what to say except that I'm so sorry.”
When you apologize to the people rudely interrupting you, you become part of the problem.
