University of Missouri students displayed anger against former Campus President Tim Wolfe over an alleged incident in which they claimed that a car he was riding in struck a black student. As Breitbart News reported:
Some of the anger directed at President Wolfe seemed to stem from an incident in which a dozen protesters shut down a homecoming parade by blocking the car carrying Wolfe and his wife. The protesters say they were angered that Wolfe didn’t get out of his car to talk to them, but that reason seemed to merge with a more dubious claim that Wolfe’s driver hit protester Jonathan Butler with his car.
A student protester (on the megaphone) in a video brought up the alleged incident, which was then incorporated into “list of demands” made of the University of Missouri.
“We want Tim Wolfe to admit his gross negligence, allowing the driver to hit one of the demonstrators, consenting to the physical violence of bystanders and lastly refusing to intervene when Columbia Police Department used excessive force with demonstrators,” it read.
But there’s no evidence in the video that Butler – or anyone – was struck by a car. But the narrative of “car hits demonstrator” is a popular tactic of the social justice warrior crowd.
Here is the video below:
Looks like to me the protester stepped in front of the car. How about you?
