If you’re in college, be careful about reaching a hand across the ideological divide. You’re liable to have it bitten off.

That’s what happened, figuratively speaking, to members of of the Kent State University chapters of Turning Point USA and Young Americans for Liberty last Friday.

The two student groups — one conservative, the other libertarian — issued a friendly challenge on Twitter to their peers at two student socialist organizations, the Kent State Socialist Collective and Kent State Young Democratic Socialists (YDSA), to take part in competitive canned food drive to jointly “do something good for the community.”

Here’s the tweet:

And here are the rather remarkable replies that came back from the two socialist groups, starting with the Socialist Collective:

Give the leadership of YDSA credit for at least having the honesty to explain its head-up-the-rectum reason for refusing to participate in a charitable endeavor.

Actually, check that. The YDSA will be holding a food drive, just not with the lepers across campus:

The only question that remains is whether the Socialist Collective and YDSA will be comparing notes on whether food drives are evil, as the first group maintains.
