The Wussification Of Our Colleges - Part 2


An article appeared identifying college students at Emory University felt "in danger" and "fear" because someone, in chalk, had written "Trump 2016".

The article's headline reads:

Some of the typical statements from students:

Paula Camila Alarcon told The Daily Beast: 'I legitimately feared for my life. I thought we were having a KKK rally on campus,'

Another student reportedly said they thought there would be a mass shooting on campus.

The university president's response was just as mystifying:

Jim Wagner, president of the university, wrote Tuesday that the students viewed the scrawling as intimidation, and they voiced 'genuine concern and pain' as a result.

He set up an investigation after members of the student government wrote to him and slammed the university's response, prompting a meeting that was shrouded in protests.

Now the university administrators want to track down those responsible for the controversial markings, as they admitted they went against the university's 'values regarding diversity'.

Thank God this isn't the start of WW II. We would have lost before the war began.

Even worse, this wussification is now spreading across colleges across the Nation.

Here is what I would expect from a university faced with this same occurrence - especially a liberal university:

"This university is an educational endeavor where the existence of divergent ideas is to be encouraged.

If you feel unsafe or emotionally troubled experiencing ideas different from your own, you need to leave here now. Ideas are not "safe" or "unsafe". They are expressions of opinions and thought processes.

Experience of such diversity of thought is what allows us to grow. Again I say, if this is uncomfortable to you in any way, go back to whatever Godforsaken environment from which you came. You are too immature to be in a college - especially this college."
