Full-blown mass liberal psychosis epidemic strikes Mizzou as students begin hallucinating about KKK attacks on campus
by J. D. Heyes
(NaturalNews) The Left-wing hysteria on the Columbia-based campus of the University of Missouri continues to escalate, as now some students there are imagining that the Ku Klux Klan are roaming freely there, a ridiculous notion that was ginned up by the student body's own president, who is African American.
As reported by The Daily Caller, several students have begun hallucinating KKK members after a tweet by Payton Head claimed that the student body leader had been given information claiming they were real. From there, hysterical students merely perpetuated the absurdity.
"Late Tuesday night, Twitter began to explode with students and others claiming that KKK members had been spotted walking around MU's flagship Columbia campus," The DC reported. "The rumors appear to have been given major life after MU's student body president, Payton Head, made a Facebook post declaring that the KKK sighting had been confirmed and that he was actively working with police and even the National Guard on the matter."
In his Facebook post, Head cautioned students to "[s]tay away from the windows in residence halls" because "[t]he KKK has been confirmed to be sighted on campus."
Perpetuating the idiocyHis comments only added to the chaos and insanity – and baseless fear – and soon dozens of people, both on and off campus, were tweeting about the alleged KKK presence. Some even claimed that Klan members were heaving bricks through the windows of dorm rooms while others claimed irrationally that the KKK members were being protected by MU Police.
One Twitter account holder named "On Tha Dead Homies" claimed, "Kkk on Missouri campus chanting 'white power' & the college professors or college staff dont see it as a 'threat' .... Amerikkka folks."
Someone named "ABG" added, "Imagine sitting in your dorm room and seeing the KKK outside throwing bricks being protected and escorted by the police .."
The entire affair, however, was nothing more than mass hysteria. Within an hour after the craziness began, local police and campus police clarified that there was no evidence at all of any KKK activity on school grounds.
"We have found no evidence of anything related to the KKK on campus," police spokesman Brian Weimar said in a statement.
Also, despite Head's claim that he was "working with" the National Guard, there was no Guard presence on university property, either.
School officials did their best to clamp down the hysteria.
The official MU Twitter account tweeted out:
"In an actual emergency, @MUalert and alert systems would be activated immediately. Please don't spread rumors."
"There is no immediate threat to campus. Please do not spread rumors and follow @MUAlert at mualert.missouri.edu for updates."
Shortly thereafter, Head apologized for starting the rumor.
What kind of mindset would consider this could even be possible?"I'm sorry about the misinformation that I have shared through social media," he said. "In a state of alarm, I was concerned for all students of the University of Missouri and wanted to ensure that everyone was safe. I received and shared information from multiple incorrect sources, which I deeply regret."
That Head would even entertain such a notion – that in this day and age, white-hooded racist KKK members would be able to freely stalk blacks on a top American university campus – as genuine tells you a great deal about him and other social justice warriors who bought into the lie.
By conducting just a bit of research, Head and anyone else interested would be able to find out that today's KKK is a shell of its former self – a weak, discredited anachronism of a bygone era. Instead, however, Head chose irrationality, and then chose to perpetuate it with a bogus, unsubstantiated Facebook post. Even the Left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center admits the organization is weak and fractured.
As insane as the situation at Mizzou has become, don't expect it to subside anytime soon. The race-baiters and race hustlers have a new host, and they will feed off of it until it dies.
