After a group of students mobbed professors and created chaos on campus over objections to a “no-whites day” being called for by activists, Evergreen State College President George S. Bridges is praising the unruly protesters who threatened the safety of his staff.

Activists on campus have been calling for a day without white students or faculty — and those that refuse to participate have been met with violent threats.

The students verbally attacked and berated the faculty so severely that biology professor Bret Weinstein was warned by campus police not to return to his classes over concerns for his safety — simply for saying that he believed the “no-whites day” is a “show of force and an act of oppression.”

“You may take this letter as a formal protest of this year’s structure, and you may assume I will be on campus during the Day of Absence,” Weinstein wrote in the email addressing the call for white people to stay home. “On a college campus, one’s right to speak — or to be — must never be based on skin color.”

For his basic statement against discrimination, Weinstein was met with outrage and surrounded outside his classroom by approximately 50 students on Tuesday.

Additionally, students who defended Weinstein were threatened.

“I have names and faces of students in bret’s class who were filming the protest yesterday and who are actively defending him, if you would like to see these faces for your own safety please message me on here,” read a Facebook post tweeted by Weinstein, with the name and photo blurred.

Instead of standing by his faculty, Bridges, the college president, has praised the actions of the disruptive students.

“I’m George Bridges, I use he/him pronouns,” Bridges said at the beginning of his speech addressing the issue on Friday.

Bridges went on to thank the students, saying “we are grateful to the courageous students who have voiced their concerns. We understand that the demands presented are evolving. We have worked intensely on this in the past two days. Our responses, too, will evolve to ensure we are attending to the needs you present. Our documents must live and be living, changing with additional issues and concerns as they arise. This work never ends.”

The president went on to address every “demand” issued by the petulant students — submitting to the majority of them.

Regarding the demand that the college fire Weinstein and two other faculty members, Bridges stated that they don’t accept requests for termination — but said that the employees would be “investigated.”

“We do not and will not fire any employees in response to a request. We do take complaints seriously. We have a college non-discrimination policy which applies to all members of our community. Following any complaint of discrimination, we will conduct a full investigation,” Bridges said. “If it is found that discrimination occurred, action is taken. The nature of that action is not released because in order to protect the privacy of those involved. We recommit to the progressive discipline processes established with our union bargaining units and the State of Washington.”

Scott Greer, the deputy editor of the Daily Caller and author of the book ‘No Campus for White Men‘ told Big League Politics that “Evergreen is what happens when anti-racism is normalized and becomes the driving force of campus activism.”

“The administration is cowed by these protesters and will do anything to appease them. Campus leftists are the greatest pressure group they have to deal with, and if they’re shouting ‘racist’, they’re gonna capitulate,” Greer added.
