Videos showing two University of Missouri instructors apparently advocating for union violence don’t represent the UM System as a whole, a spokeswoman said.
The videos — posted online yesterday on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website — show snippets of Judy Ancel, director of UM-Kansas City’s Institute for Labor Studies, team-teaching with Don Giljum of Operating Engineers 148. The Labor in Society & Politics class is a joint effort between UMKC and UM-St. Louis.
The videos are clearly edited — something Breitbart is known for. His news aggregate website is the one that put out an edited video showing Shirley Sherrod, an official at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, claiming she discriminated against a white farmer. The video later was shown to have been edited out of context, and Sherrod has filed a lawsuit against him.
Unlike the GOP spin from Janese Silvey, here's amore reasonable article from Fired Up Missouri:
I'm blown away by this story in the Columbia Tribune by Janese Silvey.
Even though the Andrew Breitbart empire of websites has a well documented history of using dishonestly editing videos to further their political goals against NPR, ACORN, Shirley Sherrod and others, the Tribune has posted videos from Breitbart's BigGovernment.com because... they "are making the rounds online."
The videos -- complete with the now-familiar quick cuts and odd edits -- are taken from an unknown numbers of classes and feature named and unnamed persons from what we're told are classes about the labor movement led by instructors UMKC and UMSL.
Or should congratulations go to Breitbart for finding someone to republish his dreck in a town that prides itself for top-flight journalism?
Here's one of the videos that Breitbart has obviously distorted.
Other Liberals, like me and Taunia Adams, also ripped Loesch's bullshit excuses.@AndrewBreitbart So when are you going to release the full, unedited tapes of the lectures?@Flynn1776 Sherrod tapes were presented to portray her as racist. NPR tapes changed context. You've earned your reputation.
@Flynn1776 Are you saying Breitbart didn't call Sherrod racist?
@Flynn1776 As for history of labor, of course that was violent, given that the companies violently suppressed labor.
Difference between this case and @DLoesch's usual dishonesty: she is the originator of this story. Pay attention @CNN '
Today, @DLoesch put herself squarely in the Breitbart camp of disgraced media figures. Outright lies that she manufactured & pushed.
@TookieW @jjmnolte Nope, you are outright lying. Release the full context of "violence is a tactic" quote. Blatant lying. Sherrod Part 2.
@Flynn1776 Release the full video. Even better, just release the 10 seconds before the quote. You're lying.
@CBSNews The story about the Missouri professors is a complete out-of-context fabrication.
@cbsnews How many times do you need to be burned before asking for full tapes from Breitbart? If you run with it, you deliberately mislead.
@cbsnews @foxnews Same people who claimed Sherrod was "discriminating" and "racist" now claim profs support "violence." Figure it out.
The Breitbart swarm is hilarious. They don't even care if they're exposed later: just desperately want media attention in the short-term.
Somehow, I bet @dloesch has good lawyers. She will probably need them after these attacks on Missouri teachers..
Heh, @DLoesch follows every word of my Twitter conversation, yet is afraid to reference me? I thought she was all "punk rawk?"
@Jimi971 I've said for a long time there are/(or were) decent people in tea party, but the Breitbart crew ain't among them!
@TookieW is lucky his insults pack no punch, because I now know way too much about him.
@shep She's pushing a misleading edited video claiming that UMSL and UMKC profs "encouraged violence."
@andrewbreitbart Whoever did your "editing" on this last once really messed up. If you think Sherrod damaged your credibility, just wait.
Naturally, Dana The Devil sent her attack dogs to defend Breitbart and the distorted tapes. Of course, their tweets were just falsehoods and personal attacks.Taunia_Adams TauniaAdamstheboneblog theboneblog@shep @stlactivisthub Oh, this whole 'professors teaching violence' thing in a labor class in the UM system.
@Jimi971 Methinks you're missing the point. Breitbart slandered Sherrod, got sued. Dana slanders a prof, she might get sued.
I'm glad Breitbart and his cronies have enough time on their hands to sit around and find videos to edit.

@DLoesch: Last time I checked, @stlactivisthub is NOT a "stalker." However, people like Dana Loesch, @tookiew, and @jjmnolte are stalkers.
@TookieW: Actually, @dloesch got OWNED by @stlactivisthub, not the other way around. #loeschfail #dlrs
@TookieW: It is you, @dloesch, @jimi971, @jjmnolte, and @stage_right that are distortionists, not @stlactivisthub or @ericboehlert.
Shut up, @DLoesch! What you're saying about unions and SEIU is discredited garbage! #DLRS #TPOT #LOESCHFAIL
What Dana's saying on the UMKC/UMSL stuff is bunch of lies designed to scare people. They are NOT teaching Communism. #dlrs #loeschfail
Dana Loesch is indeed advocating violence against Liberals and Democrats. #DLRS #DanaLoesch #LoeschFail

Yes, Breitbart's deceptive editing hit #MO and the tea party would like to eliminate labor studies. All newsworthy I'm sure. @benpolitico
@TookieW get off your high horse, already.My grandparents,never been in a union,Grandpa was in mgmt.He's worried about GOP ending Medicare.
Don't get so far on a rant you disrespect the many union members working for Ameren around the clock after #tornado. @TookieW @PeterKinder
DLoesch Dana Loesch
Very curious as to what @UMKansasCity thinks about its professors teaching that criminal activity is OK in class: http://bit.ly/i8NDoh
@rightinillinois The man who lives with his mom in Granite City and threatened to hang me? Considering having him served with a PO.
Heh, the only way video of Marxist professors teaching that the flag is "racist" and how-to for industrial sabotage is "out of context"
@TookieW @jjmnolte @Flynn1776 LOL. I love how it's "lying" to criticize someone caught on tape saying "American flag is racist." #fail
@TookieW @jjmnolte @Flynn1776 Or how it's "lying" to criticize college profs caught on tape endorsing thug tactics multiple times. #morefail
@jjmnolte That's what is so funny. Technically, I have a case due to the libel (love when people can't tell the difference so use both)
@jjmnolte You give him too much credit. I don't give him attention because he's a stalker and just not that good at politics. #caring
@Jimi971 LOL. He was so scared he forgot to record me with his camera. See, a real pundit would have debated. Was sad. #stalkerfailjjmnolte jjmnolte
@TookieW @dloesch @Flynn1776: @stlactivisthub, @ericboehlert & Leftists don't have facts or arguments, just TACTICS.
@stlactivisthub So u haven't seen the vid! Yer the one shouting SLANDER. Shouldn't YOU know? #DimBulb @TookieW @Flynn1776
@stlactivisthub Dude, you're screaming slander not having seen the vid & ur telling me to be careful, uhm, slanderer? @TookieW, @Flynn1776
@stlactivisthub did we miss part where THUG says, "just kiddin'!" Or when FBI bursts in to make undercover arrests? @TookieW @Flynn1776
So @stlactivisthub, you haven't seen whole video & you're screaming slander? That's slander, u dimbulb. @TookieW, @DLoesch, @Flynn1776Flynn1776 Mike Flynn
ouch @tookieW you got pawned by that little shriver kid at @stlactivisthub What has he ever done, by the way?
LOL @stlactivisthub Nice try. Not falling for your silliness. I know how the left works. U own this class.
LOL I guess @stlactivisthub thinks professor said "violence is a tactic" BUT u should never use it. Hint: She didn't.
Hey @Liberty_Chick just thinking I got drawn into a fight with a minnow. Need to atone for my focus on @stlactivisthub. Weird on my part.
I'm sorry @stlactivisthub ur allies are on tape advocating violence. U have to deal with it. Wait until this happens across campuses.
@stlactivisthub would you condemn industrial sabotage? Or disrupting power plants causing black-outs?
Right @stlactivisthub cause everyone sits around after 60 minutes saying, Boy...I need to see the full tapes...only us w that standard
@derekahunter what drives lefties like @stlactivisthub nuts is they know we have the goods, cuz its typical college fare. The gig is up.
Report the story @stlactivisthub. If we are wrong U will be praised by progressives everywhere. U can do it!

@TookieW I don't debate hacks like that. I simply use them as examples of the intellectual deficit on the Left.
@stlactivisthub She said violence was to be used when it's an appropriate tactic. You're seriously grasping here. @jjmnolte
You know, tool, it might help if you had some evidence before you go around trying to accuse people of lying. @stlactivisthub
Also, don't you think they know people you would ask for the "unedited videos", moron? But hey.... keep sounding the alarm. @stlactivisthub
Are you trying to say that those guys aren't communists and they weren't lecturing about how to be subversives? @stlactivisthub
LOL! @mmfa wannabe -> MT @stlactivisthub UMSL/UMKC tapes look highly edited. @dloesch owns this story if there turns out to be misleadingJimi971 JimiYa see @stlactivisthub PRIDES himself in RT's from Senior Fellow @ericboehlert and response from"Breitbart Crew" this is his activist oxygenThe fact is! That @stlactivisthub is arrogant enuff to think that @DLoesch views his lil' Boehlert page when HE responds to her show..HE... @stlactivisthub trolled @DLoesch's mommy blog, HE (Adam Shriver) injected himself into Wash U Student paper about Dana...HE..has been trying to bring down @DLoesch her husband,any little thing he @stlactivisthub can get.ALL THIS & every single time falls FLAT on his face!
I think @stlactivisthub oughtta stick to contemplating the pain fish, may or may not feel... One thing at a time Adam.
@stlactivisthub @DLoesch @jjmnolte YET Adam blogs Aw shucks Think I stood my ground in "mob" later says Tea folks nice people? Which is it?
@stlactivisthub @DLoesch jjmnolte If Dana is afraid 2 reference you Adam,why did SHE confront u last yr rally?Made u look like a smacked ass.
@stlactivisthub @DLoesch Oh and by the way stop stealing Michelle's "punk rawk" ref, come up with your own stuff Adam. ;)
@stlactivisthub @DLoesch @jjmnolte Adam, are that fucking arrogant to think that Dana is following you? Really? You're a parrot of lib talk.
@stlactivisthub @dloesch @flynn1776 99.9% of the time when u see the words.."she or her" on his Twitter page? It's about Dana. A Diva thing.
She is indeed doing libelous activity that warrants being suspended from her job and/or liable to be sued.
