Emory University Erupts In Protests After Someone Writes "Trump 2016" In Sidewalk Chalk

Hey,

I am a student at Emory and yesterday, March 21st, someone had written Trump in chalk hundreds of times on campus. Some people apparently were OFFENDED that someone wrote Trump 2016 in CHALK so these 50 people were protesting in the DUC…absolutely ridiculous. Today the president sent this email. Really hoped shit like this wouldn’t happen here but this is why nobody respects college students I guess.

Dear Emory Community,

Yesterday I received a visit from 40 to 50 student protesters upset by the unexpected chalkings on campus sidewalks and some buildings yesterday morning, in this case referencing Donald Trump. The students shared with me their concern that these messages were meant to intimidate rather than merely to advocate for a particular candidate, having appeared outside of the context of a Georgia election or campus campaign activity. During our conversation, they voiced their genuine concern and pain in the face of this perceived intimidation.

After meeting with our students, I cannot dismiss their expression of feelings and concern as motivated only by political preference or over-sensitivity.

*snip*

Sincerely, Jim Wagner (President)

"Trump 2016" needs to come with trigger warnings, apparently.

NO MORE Freedom of Speech, NO MORE writing words to express your views on sidewalks. No longer the Land of the Brave and the Free.

What a fool that President is. He should tell those little snowflakes to go home to mommy and daddy instead of having them pay $60K a year to go there if they are offended.

Chalking a name on the sidewalk was like sticking a bottle rocket up a chicken’s a** all the cackling and such.
Sensitive little souls, ain’t they?

“Genuine concern and pain at this apparent intimidation.”

Good God.. And these fragile little snowflakes are our future “leaders.”

Emory's definitely white. Infested with a bunch of liberal NYC-area kids.

LMAO!!!
Question; did the offended ones go to the school president to voice their concerns, or to have their soiled diapers changed?

Wow. If we had known it was just that easy, we would have been doing it all along.

Every Trump supporter should mail him a hand written “Go Trump Go!”
