Twelve examples of special snowflake students whining about pro-Trump messages.
Peter Fricke | Campus Reform
A campaign calling on students to write pro-Trump chalk messages on college and university campuses across the country, “The Chalkening,” has done a great deal to expose the extreme sensitivity that pervades American higher education. “Triggered” by such troubling communiques as “Trump 2016” and “Build The Wall,” students have reported the chalkings to police, Student Governments have offered counseling to the “victims,” and administrators have taken steps ranging from condemning the messages to banning political chalking entirely.
Campus Reform has compiled the following twelve examples highlighting the extent of the hysteria that has gripped some schools at the mere mention of Trump’s name.
Schools where administration took action
Administrators deemed Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric antithetical to the school’s values, and responded by banning the golf team from practicing at the world-class Trump Doral course.
National Greek life organizations cancelled several “Greek Week” events after learning that some fraternity and/or sorority members had written pro-Trump slogans on a Free Speech Wall.
Students called campus police to report “hateful” Trump chalkings, inspiring a “chalk war” the following week. Student Government resolved to make campus a “safe space” for immigrant students, and the school’s president issued a statement condemning the Trump chalkings.
In response to Trump-inspired chalk messages left by members of College Republicans, administrators banned all chalking on campus, ostensibly to preserve political neutrality.
