Emory University, kind of a prestige school, has responded to a dire emergency by coming up with a new “campus chalking policy” regulating what students may or may not scribble on the sidewalk with a piece of chalk ( http://www.dcclothesline.com/2016/03/24/college-students-cry-and-call-for-a-safe-space-because-someone-chalked-trump-2016-on-a-sidewalk/ ). From now on, any little message chalked onto any temporary surface will have to be “pre-approved” by university bigwigs.
Yes–someone chalked “Trump 2016” on the sidewalk and the students went all to pieces over it. “I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe here… I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school,” whined one of the precious little flowers.
Gee–think they would’ve freaked out if the slogan was “Bernie 2016”?
I am at a loss to explain how so many of America’s young people could have been turned into blubbering crybabies in so little time. Donald Trump, they’re afraid of. Imposing a Stalinist chill on free speech, they’re not afraid of. Can it possibly be that these students–a word with increasingly negative connotations–really want to live in a world in which all opinions but their own are forcibly suppressed?
Let’s face it–there are too many colleges in America, too many professors teaching useless pseudo-subjects, and way too many confused young air-heads “studying” them.
This is not going to turn out well for America.
