Missouri University's Racially Soiled Past Engulf's Its Presidient and Chancellor

Leon Wolf, a contributor to Erick Erickson's RedState blog, commented on student and football team player protests at the University of Missouri (MIZZOU): "cowardly liberal lazy douchebags." He apparently went farther with exhibits of the conservative mind and inner core as he commented about his twisted thoughts on the campus protests: "completely unrelated to racism," and his mind more related to a lack of desire for "practicing for a bad football team." 

Mizzou's football team is most assuredly suffering a down performance year after two straight years of winning the South East Conference (SEC) Eastern Division championship.

According to MediaMatters Wolf's November, 9th commentary including the following:
“Wolf dismissed the protesters’ claims of racist incidents on campus, alleging that the players ‘invented facially unbelievable accusations of widespread racism on campus’ to ‘skip the last three weeks of pointless practices’ for ‘a bad football team.’ He derided the students’ demands as ‘laughably absurd,’ and called the protesting students ‘cowardly liberal lazy douchebags’ and “willing suckers” engaging in a ‘lazy strike.”
It is interesting the conservative mind, filled with vile anger, can find the two-year consecutive SEC Eastern Division champions, suddenly averse to practice. The conservative mind and associated oratory from the mouths of its demagogues is proof-positive of extreme short-sightedness coupled with blind devotion to regressive ideology. Moreover, and much more relevant is the extent to which conservative demagogues satisfy a need among their sycophant followers. If there wasn't a major audience for such trash as Wolf's vulgar comments, such communication would not ensue.

The following image best fits my point:

Of course, Wolf doesn't work for Fox News. However, a better example of media feeding conservative regressivism isn't available if we move past Rush Limbaugh.  Speaking of Limbaugh.

The AM conservative talk radio ranted with a familiar conservative refrain: "the end of college football as we know it."  

I personally know at least four white associates, estranged friends separated via social ideology, who succumbed the following Twitter expression of white nationalism. 

The Raw Story’s Ben Shapiro said:

The veritable "fruitcake" of white nationalism inherent in the delineated remarks isn't surprising. It is, in fact, anticipated and necessary for feeding the psyches of those who soak up such garbage like a sponge thrown upon a pond.

Carol Anderson, teacher at the university, recently published a piece in The Conversation, regarding specific experiences while she worked at Mizzou. She also provide a great and professorial review of the school's racial history.

It appears decision-makers at Mizzou may have contributed much to the demise of Wolfe and the school's chancellor. We find money decisions again failed an organization, while many on the right lay blame to students and "lazy' football players. 

Maybe we have reached a point in US History where dissent is treated as scornfully as it was received by well known dictatorial and authoritarian societies. Or, have we simply moved to resent from certain segments of the population is frowned-upon.
