You might remember a while back when the blacks on campus ordered all whites off the premises for an entire day. You might also remember that one professor, Bret Weinstein, refused to go and the students harassed him and called for his resignation and slanderous remarks flew like feathers in the wind.
Well, professor Weinstein has filed a Tort Claim, which is required 60 days before filing a lawsuit, by state law. Weinstein is asking for $3,850,000.
Evergreen State never supported Professor Weinstein and allowed him to be harassed by the same students who protested in an effort to end homework. They also protested Weinstein and tried to get the college to fire him.
Weinstein’s wife Heather Heying — also an Evergreen State professor — is on the claim as well, the outlet said. The claim was signed by the couple’s attorney and received by Washington state’s Department of Enterprise Services Office of Risk Management on July 5, Campus Reform reported.
The attorney told the outlet the claim was “for the hostile work environment that has been fostered at the college over the past year or so,” adding that there is “no current litigation” as a tort claim must be filed “at least 60 days prior to initiating legal action” in Washington.
Among hundreds of pages of documents Campus Reform said it obtained was “A Letter to the campus and Bret Weinstein from some Jews bent on the destruction of White Supremacy” which demands Weinstein’s firing.
“We want to talk about the ways that Weinstein is positioning himself as a Jew to invalidate the claims of racism being raised against him,” the letter states, the outlet reported.
“Bret Weinstein is wrong, he has put you in danger, and we will not allow him to hide behind our histories in order to dodge responsibility for his abhorrent and reprehensible words and actions,” it concludes, according to Campus Reform. “NO COPS ON CAMPUS!!! FIRE BRET WEINSTEIN!!! BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!”
The outlet said that a factual narrative submitted with the claim asserts Evergreen State “has permitted, cultivated, and perpetuated a racially hostile and retaliatory work environment” and that “Through a series of decisions made at the highest levels, including to officially support a day of racial segregation, the College has refused to protect its employees from repeated provocative and corrosive verbal and written hostility based on race, as well as threats of physical violence.”
