Episode 17 of Benjamin Boyce’s “Complete Evergreen Story” was about community policing. Student activists wanted to eliminate the school’s police force and replace it with some form of progressive call-out culture. It only took moments after the students claimed they could police themselves before one of them was denouncing a fellow student for Islamophobia and, without evidence, demanding he leave an open meeting. Community policing, it turns out, is progressive groupthink backed by the solidarity of the mob.
In episode 18, Boyce implies how similar the takeover of Evergreen was to the Chinese Cultural Revolution of the 1960s. He does this not by talking about it but by showing video of the young communists in China who were eager to denounce their own professors in order to demonstrate their love for Chairman Mao. One student admits that his school’s headmaster wasn’t really a bad guy, but they had to denounce him anyway for the greater good.
That’s apparently the script the student protesters at Evergreen were following too. They made accusations against Bret Weinstein and probably anticipated he would cave under the pressure. When he didn’t do that they became even more infuriated. And that fury became even more intense when he dared to tell his story on Fox News.
