Left wing Thuggery spreading to ANOTHER Public University in Texas (Abbott still doing nothing)....

"He who covers his sins will not prosper,
But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy."
Proverbs 28:13

By now, we're sure you've heard about Briscoe Cain's speech at Texas Southern being shouted down by protesters:

We've seen plenty of ink spilled over the "meaning" of all this, but allow us to discuss a more practical aspect: this nonsense has now spread out from the University of Texas to infect other public universities...and the Boards of Regents (that have been appointed by Governor Abbott) continue to do NOTHING.

Remember, two weeks ago, when the communist vandals at the University of Texas went after a widely respected 40 year old right of center political organization?!?  As we discussed at the time, the chain of command goes "University President" -> "Board of Regents" -> "Governor."  Unfortunately, none of the above did anything about the UT incident, so we shouldn't be surprised that it's moved to Texas Southern.

[Note: While we're on the subject, we also predicted Abbott's strange appeasement of the higher ed status quo would lead to this back in June and in January, although even we thought it would be contained to UT-Austin.]

[Note II: Dishonorable mention should also go to Joe Straus for killing the campus free speech bill; but even if that bill had passed, this would have been on the Board of Regents, which means it's on Abbott.]

Bottom Line: In Texas' public universities, the Office of the Governor controls the respective Boards of Regents.  Greg Abbott could shut down this nonsense in five minutes if he were so inclined.  Apparently, he's not....
