Students at the University of California, Berkeley attempted to shut down their midterm exam recently, claiming their mental and physical health was at stake.
In a video posted on YouTube, four leftist students demanded a “take-home essay with significant time to prepare” replace the scheduled in-class exam. The professor of the class, Harley Shaiken, was less than cooperative with their demands.
“This is a campus that is truly related throughout Latin America to the notion of free speech,” Shaiken explained to the laughter of the protesters.
The snowflake students claimed their “well-beings are being put on the line because of the emotional, mental, and physical stress that this university is compounding with what is already going on in [their] everyday lives.”
“Have you ever checked ‘unlisted’ or ‘undocumented immigrant’? I don’t think so!” one protester shouted at the professor. Keep in mind, Shaiken has written about and advocated for improved workers’ rights in Mexico, specializes in labor issues and earned the Outstanding Teaching Award at the University of California, San Diego in 1991.
The protesters, with their entitled and ignorant mindset, claimed Shaiken was unfit to teach a class on labor issues in America and Mexico because he is a white male who should check his privilege.
One student, who was annoyed at the protest, jokingly asked if “this is a filibuster.”
“Are you trying to silence us right now? Is that what you’re trying to do?” said one protester without any self-awareness. The student responded by stating he was just “trying to take my test.”
“This is our mental health. This is our physical health. This is…um,” claimed another protester before turning to her ‘comrade’ for help.
Professor Shaiken offered to step outside and continue the discussion to let the remainder of the students finish their exams, however, the protesters refused and instead went to the Department of Ethnic Studies to complain.
“I don’t know why you’re still, like, sitting down, y’all. I don’t understand. I really don’t understand. Y’all can take your f**king test, but people are dying out there,” said a protester who remained behind before accusing her fellow students of supporting white supremacy.
