“The Left eats its own.” That’s what the bother of Professor Bret Weinstein tweeted. And he is correct, as his brother is learning the hard way.
Bret Weinstein is a biology professor at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. He is through and through a leftist, encouraging black and Latino students to boycott classes on their “Day of Absence.”
This year, however, was very different. Students went further, demanding that all white people vacate the campus instead.
This prompted Weinstein to send out an email where he objected to the new “Day of Absence”, and he encouraged other white people to do the same.

Weinstein sympathized with the protester’s claims that they were “under-appreciated” but protested that this year, their demands went beyond the pale.
That email, that protest, was considered racist. And because it was racist, Weinstein received crowds of SJW students shouting at him to be fired or resign.
They crowded around him for two days.
Here is a video of their protests, even while the Professor is trying to have a civil discussion:
Weinstein told The Washington Times that things were “out of control at Evergreen … Police told me protesters stopped cars yesterday, demanding information about occupants. They believe I was being sought. It appears that the campus has been under the effective control of protesters since 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. Police are on lockdown, hamstrung by the college administration. Students, staff and faculty are not safe.”
On Thursday, Weinstein held his class at a downtown park. He said, “I have been told by the Chief of Police it’s not safe for me to be on campus.”
A college administrator confirmed this, saying police told Weinstein it “might be best to stay off campus for a day or so.”
Students were less sympathetic to the news of Weinstein fearing for his life.
Marrissa Parker, a student protester, said, “If he feels unsafe or frightened for two days, he can only imagine what black and brown bodies have feared for years.”
That’s the way to do it. Spread the message of equality be scaring someone who supports you. Scare them out of their minds.
That’ll get your point across…
