Mizzou fired Click, Gonzaga hired her

Former University of Missouri professor and ginger extraordinaire Melissa Click is now going to be the problem of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash. according to the Kansas City Star who cited the school's website as a source.

Click was a subversive communications professor at the U of M until they fired her in February after she was video taped calling for "some muscle" in order to eject a student videographer who was trying to report on protests at the Concerned Student 1950 camp on the Columbia campus. In other words, the student was trying to communicate a story that a "professor" of communications was trying to totally redact. 

Oh, the irony.

The student posted the video, it went viral and the faculty, students and alumni lambasted Click and the school had no choice but to get rid of her.

Now she is listed as a lecturer at Gonzaga and Elisabeth Mermann-Jozwiak, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences wrote that she is aware of Click's unconstitutional behavior but since when should that stop anyone from hiring a First Amendment bully?

Click was hired for a one-year, non-tenure track position in the communication studies department where she will focus on non-communication issues. 

"If I don't like what you're saying, I will do all in my power to keep you from saying it," Click said non-verbally. "Same goes for video taping," the communications lecturer added.

Mermann-Jezwiak's statement read in part: Dr. Click was hired through an extensive national search process that revealed her to be the most qualified and experienced candidate for the position." It went on to read: "Dr. Click has excellent recommendations for both her teaching and her scholarship, which includes an extensive record of publication. We are confident she has learned much from her experiences at the University of Missouri and believe she will uphold the rigorous standards of academic excellence demanded of Gonzaga faculty and students."

What the statement left out was that the "extensive national search" for recruitment purposes was the Helen Keller School for the Deaf and Blind, the Beijing, China campus. And that the "excellent recommendations" were signed by Mr. and Mrs. Click--her parents.

Click is an oxymoron as a communications lecturer. But that only reveals what Gonzaga University thinks of the First Amendment.

I will boycott all Gonzaga basketball games and Japanese monster movies that feature a monster with the namesake of the school.

Luckily, I have never gone to any Gonzaga basketball games and live on the other coast.
