The following comes from a Mar. 6 story on Christian Newswire.
On March 3, a UC Santa Barbara professor attacked a young pro-life activist, stole and destroyed her sign, and encouraged a group of students to violence, inciting an angry mob.
Thrin and Joan Short, experienced Survivors activists, led the peaceful pro-life outreach event with 11 friends, most of whom were students from Thomas Aquinas College. They used signs displaying images of abortion victims to begin conversations with students before a confrontation by professor of Feminist Studies, Mireille Miller-Young, turned violent.
The angry professor interrupted the students’ calm interaction with the activists by grabbing a pro-life sign out of the hands of one of them, carrying the sign off through the campus flanked by her students, and then assaulting Thrin Short while trying to hide from police, who were on their way.
Police officers later found the remains of the sign, which had been destroyed. UC Santa Barbara police are completing their report to be submitted for prosecution.
Despite the violence, neither Thrin nor Joan are deterred from leading future pro-life outreaches.
Joan says, “Yesterday we had a good day. We passed out all of the literature we had, and had lots of conversations. We know babies are dying everyday so we will continue to peacefully and nonviolently speak the truth about abortion. We know we will suffer insult and even violence as we did today but we will not waver from our nonviolent speech on behalf of the babies.”
“Survivors leadership are very proud of Thrin Short who at 16 years old, not only led a successful event, but handled one of the ‘worst case scenarios’ of pro-life activism with courage and poise,” says Kristina Garza, director of campus outreach for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. “She led students even older than herself, to take action to end abortion, and when confronted with anger and violence, she responded calmly and wisely.”

Be careful with progressives: they bite!
Let us speak plainly. These young, pro-life activists were engaged in a lawful activity. The violence against them has a name: it is called terrorism. Mister Obama has set the tone for such terrorist acts, and, I suspect, condones them.
Obviously, someone failed U.S. Constitution I in middle school!
Ah, she’s a “Doctor.” Apparently a worthless Ph.D., not worth the sheet of paper the degree is written on.
No one should tolerate physical abuse. Press charges and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
Also file an additional complaint with the Universities Board of Directors after the professor is found guilty, and ask that the professor be fired.
Most tenure and contracts have behavioral conditions to employment.
There is so much to say on this: (1) prosecute the apparent criminal here — Prof. Miller-Young (a Phd in one of those screwy majors with little intellectual content). If this story is accurate, she should be: (a) placed on unpaid administrative leave; (b) be investigated and prosecuted by local authorities; (c) sued civilly by the pro-life victims; and (d) fired by the University, after full observance of the professor’s due process rights; (2) demand that the University of California, not just the Santa Barbara campus, develop and immediately institute a “Bill of Rights” day, where attendance is mandatory by all professors, staff and students. Teach, particularly, the First Amendment and why what the “Feminist Studies” professor cannot be tolerated, ever, by any American (focusing on the irony of a public university permitted such outrage against an American citizen exercising their constitutional rights). This kind of arrogance is no different than Nazism, or Soviet, or Chinese attacks on the “unwelcomed” members of their respective societies. And, recognize that this professor did this because she felt safe, and supported, in her nutty views. The danger here goes beyond her apparently criminal behavior. Instead, all must recognize that our universities are turning our subersives, and ones with little intellectual depth or understanding of how a society works.
Hi, I’m responding to one part of your post, “If this story is accurate…”. In fact, this story is just that. A story. It is not accurate. This is not real journalism here, as they interviewed a total of 0 students from UCSB who witnessed this event. The Professor did not attack anyone, nor did she incite an angry mob.
And readers on this board should take your word for it, right? Maybe this story becomes “journalism” in your view had Miller-Young been interviewed along with some USCB children so they all could have been given the opportunity to deny everything. I’m sure that will be Miler-Young’s nuanced defense anyway – “I didn’t do it!” It’s a new up and coming legal theory.
Its on video
Miller-Young is a one person left wing hate group. She belongs in jail!
As a uc prof she will retire with 90 percent pay for her entire life ($120k+), which will support her work to spread the news about porn
An official of a public institution attacked and disrupted a legal peaceful exercise of 1st amendment rights……..surely the ACLU will be filing an Amicus Curiae brief any moment in support of the innocent demonstrators….don’t hold your breath on that one
Where to begin. For one thing, this is just one more sign of the moral insanity, the total delusionality, of some of the professorial class that assaults what’s left of Judeo-Christian morality. This so-called professor of, apparently, all things African-American, is also just one more of her kind that seems to equate race with assumptions of superiority about racial knowledge above and beyond all other considerations. For example, I’d love to know what her response to the following stat might be: African-Americans comprise roughly 12-15 % of the population in the U.S.; yet, African-American women have 48-49% of ALL legalized aborton murders perpetrated upon the innocent unborns in the same country. Talk about genocide against one race! “Saint” Margaret Sanger must be having deliriums of apoplectic delight, or something, in her success of achieving the goal of eliminating her self-proclaimed “undesirables” through her demonic “business” that she helped found, Planned Parenthood. Wherever she now resides. Obviously there is so much more that could be said. In finishing, it is my fervent hope that Prof. Miller-Young inhabit a jail cell for at least ten years for her outrageous and viloent attack on free speech and her advocacy of so many deplorable things; she seems to be a complete psychotic and psychological mess as a human being. Professor, HEAL THYSELF! Holy Mary Immaculate, pray for us who so desperately need your prayers. God bless all, markrite
It has been my experience that any college course with the word “studies” in it is junk and usually consists of agitation and left-wing propaganda. Those who “teach” such courses are too lazy to pursue real majors.
A solid violation :
Penal Code 404.6 PC is a U.S. misdemeanor in California law Conviction can trigger up to one year of county jail, and a fine of up to $1000.00. 4 However, a judge may grant probation with little or no jail time. Probation will require that the defendant stay our of trouble, or risk getting violated and sent to jail for up to the maximum term.
Inciting a jail or prison riot (where someone suffers serious bodily injury) makes the punishment wobbler, meaning it can be filed as either a misdemeanor or a felony in California law.5 As a felony, it carries up to three years in
California state prison.
You used a rather flattering old photo of Miller-Young. She’s quite fat now. Did you know she is into lesbian porn films? She has contributed to a book of Best Lesbian Erotica and she and her lesbian friends made a lesbian porn movie.
And yes, this is what our tax dollars support at UC. Now that is criminal.
“She’s quite fat now.” What does that have to do with her putative criminal behavior?
This tenured Professor organizes a New Sexuality group that “provides a support system and network for nearly thirty-five sexuality studies scholars on campus, including a forum for them to share their research and discuss methodological and pedagogical concerns”. How can UCSB afford this number of sex scholars? Why promote lesbians for women’s “studies”? Her posted Curriculum Vitae is worth reading just to learn about the enemy within.
One of the ironies of our times is that people who claim to want inclusion of thought do their best to exclude those who disagree. It has been the intolerance to opposing views that have allowed the Hilters, Maos and the Stalins of the world to convince the masses to do nothing while they murdered millions for a perceived social “good.” Not much has changed, sadly. We just kill babies instead of Jews or the socio-poltical opposition.
God bless those young people for being there and sharing their voice.
I was Stalked by the UC-BS Gaystapo years ago because I dared to object to their Rank Raw Misandry (Hatred of Men & Boys, Masculinity & Normal Heterosexuality).
I dared to challenge the Official Published Policy of UC-BS stating that:
” Gang Rape represents Normal Male Sexuality, the Abuse of Women for Fun”
– which got me on the Secret Hit List of the Twysted Systers who Secretly contacted the Fire Department and demanded I be silenced and punished for contradicting their Hate.
They had also run an editorial in the UC-BS Student Newspaper (Daily Nexus) with a picture of a white male with a Pig growing out of his head and the caption:
” I am a Lying Sexist, Cut Open my head, Drag Out the Pig, and Butcher It”
My statement against this Violent MIsandry was taken by the County of Santa Barbara as “Writing Letters to the Editor Expressing Negative Views on Current Women’s Issues” – and I lost my job as a Fire-Engineer.
The Twysted Systerhood use the UC Police to go in to the Community and conduct Secret Vendettas against the “Pigs”
– and the Courts (like Rick Brown -who like opposing counsel was employed by the County when judging my complaint against them, showing up late for Court because he was pleading for money from the Defendants) – side with Misandry…
Because that is where the Tax Subsidy pays best, even for the “Men’s Auxiliary” of SCUM – The Society for Cutting Up Men. Also known as Womyn’s Studiez
Send your children to Thomas Aquinas College.
I hope this professor is taken care of by the full force of criminal law,
for she is a criminal.
Miracles can and do happen, but we no longer have a Justice System, and you are I am afraid a dreamer.
May God have mercy on an amoral Amerika!
Viva Cristo Rey!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

“by the full force criminal law”! We no longer have criminal justice, and you are, I am afraid, a dreamer!

Shame on them. Blessing to you Kenneth.
Lots of so-called college “teachers,” or “professors,” since the liberal, filthy 1960s, are nothing but “dirty old men” and “dirty old women,” poorly educated, no morals, who hang out at the local “dirty adult bookstores,” which the local police always have to keep an eye on, all the time, for low-class crimes and possible crimes involving youth and children. These so-called “professors” are the WORST “low-life,” “anti-society,” mentally disturbed and disordered “beatniks” and “hippies” you could ever find, hiding behind masks of false education and false public recognition, given to them by confused, dumb, poorly-educated people in high positi0ns with no moral development themselves, and no talent at leadership!! America’s WORST!! And NO GUTS to get rid of them all!! The 1960s “anti-society” hippies and liberals all preached liberal garbage, including CRIMINAL beliefs and behaviors– as a FALSE concept of “PROGRESS,” to somehow “improve” the world, which they so despised and ridiculed, in their stupidity!! This so-called “professor” is a typical, liberal “quack” professor! A hideous FALSE TEACHER!! Typical low-life mentality, in the gutter, close to being a criminal, with prostitution, pornography, violence, maybe dope, too! And ABORTION should be called “MURDER,” by law!! WHY are these people stupidly “tolerated,” year after year, by America’s civic, government, and religious leaders?? WHY?? Such evil people and their filth, in high positions of teaching and leadership– are DANGEROUS!!
There’s a better reported piece here in the SB Indy today:
The only son of well-to-do and noble parents St. Peregrine was born in 1260 at Forli, Italy. As a young man of eighteen he took an active part in the politics of his native city, which belonged to the anti-papal party that disturbed the peace of Italy. On the occasion of a popular rising, St. Philip Benizi, who had been sent by Pope Martin IV to act as a mediator and preach peace at Forli, was severely mishandled by the popular leaders. Peregrine himself, hotheaded and impetuous, with a gang of followers met the Saint at the gates of the city. The gentle words of St. Philip in behalf of peace were met with abusive language, rocks and clubs. To prove his leadership, the proud Peregrine went so far as to strike the holy man on the face with his fist, knocking him down. The saintly Servite’s only reply was to offer the other cheek and to pray for this misguided youth. This heroic meekness deeply impressed Peregrine. He soon realized what a fool he had made of himself and how rude he had been, so he ran three miles to catch up to the retreating Saint. With tears he confessed his guilt and begged forgiveness on his knees and promised to change his way of living. St. Philip consoled his penitent, exhorting him at the same time to amend his life and to cultivate a childlike devotion to the Mother of God.
