Destructive, liberal mindsets and ways have taken over college faculty and staff, allowing campuses to devolve into glorified playgrounds, where professors and leadership coddle their students instead of teaching them.
The very places that should be challenging young minds, forcing them to grow, preparing them for the dog-eat-dog world, has all but turned them into babies. Safe spaces, trigger warnings and radical acceptance of social justice ideology has placated the most childish, most pathetic and most weak generation we’ve seen since the 1960s.
And you better believe with the election of Trump, it’s only getting worse.
From Zero Hedge:
The University of Michigan Law School announced a ”post-election self-care” event with “food and play,” including “coloring sheets, play dough [sic], positive card-making, Legos and bubbles with your fellow law students.” (Embarrassed by the attention, UM Law scrubbed the announcement from its website, perhaps concerned that people would wonder if its graduates would require Legos and bubbles in the event of stressful litigation.)
Stanford emailed its students and faculty that psychological counseling was available for those experiencing “uncertainty, anger, anxiety and/or fear” following the election. So did the University of Michigan’s Flint campus…
At Tufts, the university offered arts and crafts, while the University of Kansas reminded students that there were plenty of therapy dogs available. At other schools, exams were cancelled and professors expressed their sympathy to traumatized students.
What the hell is going on? This listing is just a sample of what these “centers for higher learning” are doing for the so-called future of our society. When did we allow nursery school teachers to take over our colleges? Why are grown adults (albeit young ones) treated like two-year-olds, just because the man they didn’t like was elected president?
Shouldn’t these students learn to deal with disappointment in a healthy way? The moment they leave college, they’re going to deal with the harsh realities of life one way or another. Perhaps these professors plan to leave their jobs and become therapists, once this clutch of students enter the real world. They will be needed, since most of them will be unfit to deal with the setbacks, disappointments, and failures everyone faces when seeking success.
It’s easy to mock this as juvenile silliness — because, well, it is juvenile silliness of the sort documented in Frank Furedi’s What Happened To The University? But that’s not all it is. It’s also exactly what these schools purport to abhor: An effort to marginalize and silence part of the university community.
All of this pathetic coddling assumes that all college students were pro-Hillary. They are neglecting and trying to silence the many students who should be openly celebrating Trump’s win. Had Clinton won, the schools would have encouraged students to throw parties, host rallies and generally revel openly. Instead college students are allowed to protest in the streets, cause riots and weep in therapy sessions over the victory of a republican.
Any student who does otherwise can expect fierce and disgraceful resistance from their fellow students, faculty and the paid protestors stirring up trouble.
Is this what our country has come to? The left want to hamper the victory so many of us worked hard to achieve. Conservatives and every Trump supporter should be dancing in the streets. Instead we are forced to hide our opinions, for fear radical hate mongers will attack us, smash up our property or burn down our homes.
I say enough is enough. It’s time for Trump supporters to reject this form of suppression. If you voted for Trump, make your voice heard online and in your community. Do not allow a minority of loud activists steal this victory from us. We did the impossible: overthrew a corrupt woman with every advantage to elect an outside who will reform our government.
That is worth celebrating, not mourning.
