You read right. This is no microaggression. It’s all-out warfare, and students at Emory University in Atlanta are craving a safe space where they can feel warm and nurtured. Sadly, due to an unkind quirk of nature, their mothers wombs are no longer available to them.

An item at The Emory Wheel explains that some cretin scribbled messages supporting Donald Trump for president on the pavement all over campus. Oh, the humanity!

What make this mountain-from-a-molehill even more ludicrous is the art medium in which these “hate” messages were rendered. It’s called chalk. You know, the stuff kids use to create hopscotch squares; the stuff that is impossible to expunge … unless you have access to a magical compound known as water.

From the article:

Students protested … at the Emory Administration Building following a series of overnight, apparent pro-Donald Trump for president chalkings throughout campus.

Roughly 40 students gathered shortly after 4:30 p.m. in the outdoors space between the Administration Building and Goodrich C. White Hall; many students carried signs featuring slogans such as “Stop Trump” or “Stop Hate” and an antiphonal chant addressed to University administration, led by College sophomore Jonathan Peraza, resounded “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!” throughout the Quad. [Emphasis added]

It gets better:

Peraza opened the door to the Administration Building and students moved forward towards the door, shouting “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

Fight for freedom? That’s precisely what these seriously misguided snowflakes are fighting against.
