This is a re-blog from The American Thinker. Enjoy.
Colleges and universities are grooming students to be insufferable infantile idiots. “Safe spaces” are now a norm, physically and psychologically insulating students from the real world. Suffice it to say, free speech died on campuses a long ago as the totalitarian left took over and imposed thought control.
So it should come as no surprise that campuses have become hotbeds for all manner of abject insanity in the wake of Trump’s glorious win last week.
Taking a by no means exhaustive tour, we find the University of Michigan Law School, George Mason University, Emory University, Stanford University, Cornell University, Yale University, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Kansas, the University of Michigan at Flint, the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, Tufts University, Virginia Tech, Iowa State University, Purdue University, Loyola University, the University of California at San Diego, and Bryn Mawr College as places that provide a window into the world of the perpetually offended and “triggered.” And since Trump won the election, he gets the job done. Bigly!
Suicide hotlines and crisis numbers have been posted for the desperately freaked out. Faculty are assuring students that they are “loved.” Gatherings have been organized that provide food, Play-Doh, Legos, and bubbles. Grief counseling and psychological services have been made available. Kittens and puppies have been brought into classrooms to offer comfort.
Cry-ins have been organized. Tissues and hot chocolate have been handed out along with crafts supplies. Therapy dogs have been introduced to stave off complete mental breakdowns. Students are demanding that classes be canceled due to exhaustion, depression, and safety concerns. Some are calling for “Trump free” spaces.
Speaking of which, on one campus (Emory), students were shocked, offended, triggered, and outraged when they saw “Trump 2016” written in chalk on several sidewalks, and they demanded that the administration speak out on the horror of it all. Because, you know, they did not feel safe.
And as a symbol of safety, or lack thereof, students (and other lunatic leftists) have taken to wearing giant safety pins as a sign of trauma and solidarity with fellow shell-shocked sheeple.
What next? Since a man can claim to be a little girl, might these kids start wearing diapers and make thumb-sucking normative behavior for adults?
There appears to be no bottom to the leftist abyss, but college students and faculty are diving down fast these days to find it. How rapidly they will devolve and regress is anyone’s guess. But at the rate they’re going, these kids may soon be reduced to a “clump of cells.”
