David versus Goliath - Oberlin College

I picked up on A win for the little guys... thanks to the Old NFO, and while I was out drinking last night I heard that Oberlin got their Liberal philosophy shoved sideways up their collective fundament with a bucket of sand to make it fit better.  After that, they got the crap slapped out of them.

For anyone not familiar with this situation, here's a quick summary:

In the Liberal small town of Oberlin is a gigantic Liberal university, and a family owned bakery.  Both have been in business for a long time, and the bakery had a contract with the university to supply them with fresh bread.

The bakery also sells wine and related items.  One night three black college students came in to "buy" (wink-wink nudge-nudge) some wine from the white clerk.  Two tried to distract the clerk while one shoplifted the wine.  The clerk objected and gave chase to the thief, a fight ensued, and the cops came and broke the whole thing up.  The kids were arrested, and - several college instructors got wind of what happened and organized a protest and a boycott, along with the requisite SJW slanderous and libelous components.

The store people didn't take this one lying down.  While the owners lost business and had to fire employees due to the harm the SJWs at Oberlin caused, they got hold of their attorney and sued.

Ha-Ha-Ha, the folks at Oberlin laughed.  They'll never win because we're clearly in the right, they're racist, and we know this as a great truth.

It was trial by jury, and at the end of the day Oberlin lost.  Then Oberlin was fined $11 million, and awarded an additional $33 million in punitive damages.

But here comes the funny part, courtesy of AP, no less.

The story: Market Awarded $44M in Racism Dispute with Oberlin College.

A jury in Lorain County awarded David Gibson, son Allyn Gibson and Gibson’s Bakery, of Oberlin, $33 million in punitive damages Thursday. That comes on top of an award a day earlier of $11 million in compensatory damages.

“Ladies and gentlemen, you have spoken,” Oberlin College attorney Rachelle Zidar told the jury Thursday before the larger award was announced, according to the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram . “You have sent a profound message. We have heard you. Believe me when I say, ‘Colleges across the country have heard you.’”

Oberlin College spokesman Scott Wargo declined to comment after the award was announced.

Yeah, Rachelle baby.  They spoke up alright, and now the Oberlin College official spokesman hasn't got a thing he's willing to say in public.

Oberlin has the funds to pay this off, but collecting is going to require some real strong arm tactics.  So to speak.

A few heads are going to roll over this one, but the icing on the cake is that this case sets a precedent - SJWs always lie, and always double down, but now when they do this and their quarry can show damages... the penalty is going to put a few SJWs out of business.

I just love this shit.  Ladies and  Gentlemen, you have spoken...  and We, the delusional SJWs at Oberlin College, as well as Liberal colleges all across the U.S. of A. have heard you.  We'll get this fixed right away!


Just listen to those crickets.

Why do libs pick on bakeries?
Now if Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver can do similar.

I suppose it's too much to ask that the award is enough to put OC out of business...

I had read this earlier. The Dean, I believe, helped the students make the pamphlets they were forcing down everyone's throats, not a word of her getting canned, either...

Ed: Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver was a deliberate set up. The SJWs knew what was going to happen, and they were prepared... for anything except the result, which was based on the vindictive behavior of the plaintiffs.

CW: You won't hear much about anyone being disciplined or fired over this, even if it does happen, which is likely. It's perfectly fine for the children to play, but when the house catches fire someone is going to pay dearly for that. Oberlin can afford the $44 million, but even for Oberlin that's a long way from a mere mosquito bite.
