We recently told you about Mireille Miller-Young, the professor who has now been charged for her assault on a pro-life teen. Alec Torres of National Review now reports that the school administration has responded by blaming the victim.

UCSB Smears Pro-Lifers After Professor’s Attack on Pro-Life Student

A high-ranking administrator at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), has responded to a professor’s violent attack on a 16-year-old pro-life demonstrator — by condemning the demonstration.

Professor Mireille Miller-Young — who specializes in black cultural studies, pornography, and sex work — was charged with theft, battery, and vandalism for for stealing from and assaulting a young participant in a pro-life demonstration, Thrin Short (in an interaction caught on tape). When the university finally opened up after several weeks of silence on the matter, the administration did not condemn the unnecessary and spiteful attack by a member of its faculty. Instead, it attacked the “anti-abortion crusaders” and “evangelical types” who came to campus “to provoke us, to taunt us and attempt to turn us against one another.”

Michael D. Young, vice chancellor for student affairs, on Wednesday sent a campus-wide e-mail regarding “Student Free Speech at UCSB.” Young decried those “who peddle hate and intolerance with less-than-noble aims” while failing to mention the professor who attacked a peaceful demonstrator.

In the e-mail, obtained by National Review Online, Young informed students that Miller-Young’s underage victim is simply a member of  “the most recent generation of true believers, self-proclaimed prophets, and provocateurs.” Young wrote that students came to him saying they felt “outrage, pain, embarrassment, fear, hurt, and feelings of harassment” because of the demonstrators.
