Left wing blogger Adam Shriver is trying to spin another story without having all the facts. On Sunday, he interviewed two "students" from UMSL who were in class when their professor assaulted Adam Sharp.
Up first was an anonymous woman who used charged language to assert that Sharp tried to violently enter the classroom, but was held back by Giljum, who was trying to protect his students. She referenced Virginia Tech, and stated Sharp was a crazy man who screamed outside the classroom.
A great story, except it was completely made up and is contradicted by the video evidence. Shortly after Giljum broke Sharp's camera and took a swing at him, Sharp started filming with his backup camera. The 25 seconds of video below show Giljum returning to the classroom, yelling "Get Out," then slamming the door.
In the video, Adam Sharp doesn't say a word. He merely holds up the camera to get video of Giljum, who has just attacked him. There was no screaming (from Sharp), no attempt to get into the classroom, and in fact, nothing but recording Giljum's eratic behavior.
A second guest on the radio show claims he heard a noise outside, but doesn't mention any kind of violent struggle at the door of the classroom. That's because it didn't happen.
Both students omit important facts. Giljum took a swing at Sharp. He entered the classroom and announced to the students that he had done so, and that class was dismissed.
Back to the interviews. It's strange that two students would omit the fact that Giljum admitted to the assault, but would play up a false violent confrontation to protect Giljum. It's also strange that they don't discuss Giljum being handcuffed and taken to the police station. It's not strange at all that Shriver would try to distort a story, and that the story would be picked up by FiredUpMissouri and Media Matters. Is Shriver being funded to by one of those organizations specifically to manufacture these falsehoods?
The point of Shriver's story was to put the blame on Sharp. Shriver's tweets and posts all talk about breaking the law (the law of Trespassing). He fails to note that Giljum was placed in handcuffs for assault. What do you expect from someone like Shriver? He hates Sharp, and probably still giggles about his friends buying a domain name that points to NAMBLA (yes, progressives bought a domain name for a local tea party site and pointed it to a criminal man-boy love site). With today's release of video from Judy Ancel discussing how to drive non-union competitors out of business, the veil has been pulled back on the Gramscian damage at UMSL and UMKC.
And no amount of lies from the Left will save them now.
