Let’s pretend for a moment, that through a series of bizarre and tragic events, a dictator somehow took over America. This horrible tyrant made no secret of his plans to crush liberty and set the Constitution on fire.
How much worse would you feel if you learned that the nation’s youth, rather than leading a resistance movement, had responded to this disaster by collectively curling into fetal position?
Well, that’s pretty much what happened on campuses around the country after Donald Trump won. Except there was no tragic event. And a tyrant didn’t crush their liberties.
Students who hate Trump claim to believe that he is the most dangerous, evil leader in American history.
And if they really believe that, they have a strange way of responding to the threat of “dictatorship” — certainly one very different from the young men who, for instance, stormed the beaches of Normandy and fought their way across Europe to defeat the Nazis.
According to Breitbart:
Administrators at the University of Pennsylvania reportedly provided students upset over the results of Tuesday’s presidential election with emotional support, puppies, coloring books and chocolate. (…)
The news was relayed by Penn student Daniel Tancredi, who told The College Fix that students at the Ivy League university were being coddled by administrators…
Tancredi claims that many professors at the University of Pennsylvania turned Wednesday’s class sessions into “safe spaces” in which students could freely express their concerns for their futures. On a campus that voted 3612-375 in favor of Hillary Clinton, these open forums were naturally dominated by anti-Trump voices.
Many people have called Trump’s win a victory over political correctness, and colleges are the spawning ground of p.c. Here’s to hoping this is at least one change President Trump will affect.
