Woke College loses massive lawsuit against Bakery It Slandered
Smart colleges and those left-wing students and radical professors within them love to smear anyone who doesn’t follow the line, whatever the latest smart talking point is. In fact, in many cases they even go against the people and companies who have not even done anything wrong or openly violated left-wing orthodoxy.
Such was the case when Gibson’s Bakery in Ohio, a bakery formerly popular with Oberlin students, caught three students shoplifting wine and confronted them about it, after which the three students brutally beat the shopkeeper for not stealing them left with impunity. Here’s how a local outlet described the incident:
The three students were arrested after punching and kicking the white shopkeeper. The 18- and 19-year-old students said they were racially profiled and that their only crime was buying alcohol with fake IDs; Shopkeeper Allyn Gibson said the students attacked him after he caught them trying to steal bottles of wine.
Now, instead of apologizing for his students’ brutal, criminal behavior, Oberlin embarked on the warpath against the innocent bakery owner. You see, the owner is white and the students were black, so the left immediately turned the violent incident into a racist incident.
Students began protesting the bakery for being racist, ignoring the fact that the students were criminals and had attacked the bakery owners, with a member of the Oberlin administration joining in slandering the bakery.
So Gibson’s owner sued for defamation, as Louder reported with Crowder at the time, saying:
On November 7, the Gibsons sued Oberlin and Meredith Raimondo, vice president and dean of studies, for defamation, accusing faculty members of encouraging demonstrations against the bakery by suspending classes, handing out flyers and providing protesters with free food and drink.
It is said that Raimondo took part in the demonstration against Gibson’s with a megaphone and handed out a flyer saying the bakery was a “RACIST establishment with a LONG ACCOUNT of RACE PROFILING and DISCRIMINATION”.
It was a hit, and the owner won, bringing in a massive settlement from the libelous, woke university. The Washington Examiner, which reported on this comparison, noted that:
A record $31 million payment to a mom and pop bakery that accused a liberal Ohio college of ruining its business with false racism allegations has been upheld by a state appeals court.
Gibson’s Bakery, a 135-year-old family business near the campus of Oberlin College, was initially fined more than $40 million in criminal and civil penalties after an incident in 2016 in which the owner’s son confronted three black Oberlin students Compensation awarded wine from the store.
This is how the slanderous and slanderous wokies are dealt with. Tolerating them or dealing with them does not create goodwill and could result in your reputation being unfairly dumped in the gutter. Fighting them in court could make you a multi-millionaire, especially if the Wokies happen to be agents at a well-funded university.
