College Stupidity Award Goes to… University of Missouri

From the Daily Caller:

A slew of campuses around the country offered up their fair share of lunacy, of course, but events at the University of Missouri reached world-historical, cosmically sublime levels absurdity during the 2015-16 academic year.

Over 30 football players briefly boycotted football because of a hunger strike by the fancypants-rich-boy son of a millionaire railroad executive. Black Lives Matter protests erupted. Groups of protesters marched across campus daily — and camped out in tents on a quad. The protesters called themselves Concerned Student 1950. (The name relates to the year the first black student matriculated at Mizzou.) Hysterical students created a bogus rumor that the Ku Klux Klan was roaming campus. A very angry white professor threatened a student journalist with mob violence. The school president resigned.

Was there a poop swastika? YES!

The wacky protests, the ridiculously cowardly acts of bureaucratic buffoonery, the cringe-worthy political correctness run amok — The Daily Caller chronicled it all as Missouri’s taxpayers watched their flagship state school swirl the drain.
