Protester Heather Clark cut the audio at a Portland State University panel featuring James Damore, the Google employee fired when he dared point out that biological differences between men and women partly explain the gender gap in science, tech, engineering, and math, according to The College Fix. Clark succeeded in silencing the speakers for about 10 minutes and was rewarded for her efforts with a second degree criminal mischief citation and a two-year ban from Portland State.
“I know that some were expecting a violent disruption,” said Clark. “I don’t think that was ever on the table. Bottom line, people like James Damore are absolutely not welcome here. We must make that clear.”
I’m sorry, but absolutely not welcome according to who? Clark’s not even a Portland State student. Who else is tired of progressives delivering these pious dictates from on high, claiming to speak for the people? But it’s only when it benefits them; don’t forget, these are the same clowns who turned the word “populist” into a slur.
“A small walkout and some equipment damage isn’t saying much, but it’s a whole lot louder than nothing,” continues Clark.
Yeah, I guess it’s a whole lot louder if by louder you mean quieter. Silencing someone is the coward’s way out and this lady’s just a less powerful version of Google, who figuratively unplugged Damore for uttering hate facts by depriving him of his livelihood.
Aside from Clark and some others who walked out, there were apparently only a handful of other protesters outside the event with signs depicting famous female scientists, as if Damore said women can’t do science. Because why refute his actual argument on general trends when you can be lazy, misrepresent it as “all women suck at science,” and create a good guy-bad guy narrative that doesn’t stand up to the slightest bit of scrutiny.
