This clip is embarrassing for more than a couple of reasons. First, the chyrons: “STUDENT: WE WANT TO UNDERSTAND THE TRUTH OF SOCIETY, UNDO THE WRONGDOINGS OF THE PAST” (that’s “breaking news”). Second, the look of deep concern on Alex Wagner’s face as she listens to what we’re pretty sure is a guy in a dress with blue hair. “Will DeSantis win?” she asks with great trepidation. (Yes, he will.)
As we reported, liberal Florida outlets like the Sun-Sentinel have decried what they call Gov. Ron DeSantis’ brazen, arrogant, “hostile takeover” of New College of Florida. Lefties freaked when DeSantis named anti-critical race theory warrior Christopher Rufo to New College’s board of trustees with an eye on making New College the Hillsdale of the south.
MSNBC sent Wagner to talk with students about their plight:
WATCH: New College has become a target of Florida Gov. DeSantis, who is implementing an administrative overhaul to give the school a new conservative identity.
"As long as we're here they can't change the culture of the school," one student says. https://t.co/okxCzPBEYw pic.twitter.com/579tKrM9Ku

Oh yeah, they can. DeSantis is working to pull all state funding of university diversity, equity, and inclusion departments and let them “wither on the vine.” Closing New College’s DEI office will eliminate four full-time jobs and will save the school about $250,000. We’re shocked they only have four full-time DEI staff — Ohio State has 132 DEI staffers.
I’m so sorry that someone finally pushed back against your decades of radicalizing college campuses. Thoughts and prayers.

I remember when MSNBC said using the term “target” was violent…

Yes, they can. And they will. And thank God they are.

So a campus wants housing exclusively for trans and wanted the state to pay for it. The governor allowed funds for boys and girls and that’s a problem?
Why does trans feel they deserve special housing? They’re boys and girls. The funds are for all. How is this giving the school… https://t.co/93zbjSoudL

Removing CRT isn't imposing a new "conservative" identity. It's recovering the school on behalf of the enlightenment.

You mean eliminating sexually perverted indoctrination and racism from your college? I support that

Hmmm… I remember when liberals infected schools with their ideology and their short sighted virtue signalling bullshit.
The pendulum is far past due for a swing back.

We don’t recall MSNBC sending a news crew to investigate progressive ideology taking over the school.
