better yet, they should all resign and go home.
I say go big or go home.
Make it a few YEARS.
Better yet, why don’t you resign in protest? That’ll show ‘em!
Well do it without pay oh brave one.
The radical left has been pushing for a “general strike” for weeks/months.
They treat this like we see it as some kind of “bad” news. They’re not particularly well connected with reality.
Only two days?
Here, let them go on strike for the next 10 years and put themselves out of business permanently.
To paraphrase Oliver Cromwell when he dismissed the British Parliament in April 1663:
“You have been sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!.

They wont be missed
Why just two days? Show us how committed you elitist academics really are and make it a full year.

She has this comment on the Ferguson Missouri riots of 2014; Americas racist god required black peoples blood to atone for the sins committed by its followers, and that such blood [is] shed in sacrifice to this god of white supremacy.
Obviously she has a beautiful soul at work here!
Shut down all the indoctrination centers they call colleges.
They wont be missed
The academics and athletes revel in their own imagined self importance. Nobody misses any of them.
