On Monday, students at Emory University in Atlanta showed up to campus in absolute horror of what they found covering sidewalks and handrails throughout the school. Young adults claimed to be so traumatized by what they found that urgent counseling had to be provided when many of them complained of feeling physical pain and believed their safety was in imminent danger.
Just hours before four bombs ripped apart two transportation systems in Europe, Emory students were dealing with their own supposed terror situation. Sometime on Sunday night, someone had the audacity to scribble “Trump 2016,” “Vote Trump,” and “Trump!!!” with a writing utensil preferred by toddlers. The erasable chalk around the campus, with a simple political message, was all it took for these easily offended people to completely lose it, suffering emotional unrest that officials were forced to deal with.
The campus publication, The Emory Wheel, actually took this “chalk situation” seriously, seemingly siding with the crybaby college students who demanded to know how someone could rape their “safe space” with a candidate’s last name. Rather than walking over the words, or simply wiping away the words instead of their tears, 40 students banded together to protests this sidewalk “terrorism” inside the administration building.
“It is our duty to fight for our freedom,” College sophomore Jonathan Peraza shouted, as he led the charge against administrators who didn’t immediately react to their temper-tantrum. “It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
Fighting for your freedom shouldn’t include suppressing someone else’s freedom of speech. What chains are these idiots speaking of? They aren’t being held against their will at a school they selected to attend for $60,000 a year, nor are they forced to permanently see Trump’s name in chalk, since they can simply erase it or look the other way, which is what a well-adjusted adult would do.
“I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe here,” one female student said. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well … I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school.”
Pretty soon liberals are going to demand a chalk ban, since the effects of this writing tool seem to be more powerful than a machine gun. Instead of mourning the 34 people who lost their lives to real hate, intimidation, and terror in Brussels, these kids are literally crying about chalk. The campus ultimately caved to these whiny brats, providing them emotional counseling similar to what students would receive had a fatal event taken place at the school.
This is the type of higher education experience Bernie Sanders and his supporters want other people to pay for. I’m sorry, but if they want to lead ludicrous discussions about sidewalk chalk and have an emotional breakdown about something this inconsequential, they can do it on their own dime.
