Fordham College Republicans Kicked Out Of Campus Coffee Shop Because Of MAGA Hats
Fox News ^ | 12-9-2017

Members of the Fordham University College Republicans club were recently asked to leave an on-campus coffee shop because they were wearing "Make America Great Again" hats.

In a video obtained by Campus Reform, an employee at Rodrigue’s Coffee House, which is run by a student club, told the College Republicans they had five minutes to get out because the hats violated the cafe's “safe space policy.”

“I don’t want people like you supporting this club," she says in the video. "No one here wants people like you supporting our club. I am giving you five minutes.”

"You are wearing hats that completely violate our safe space policy,” she continues. “I'm telling you to take it off or you have to go.”

On "The Story," one of the College Republicans who was ordered to leave the cafe, Aaron Spring, spoke out about the incident.

"Part of what she was talking about was that we violated the safe space and that we represented Nazism and fascism, and all this just made-up liberal propaganda, really," Spring said.

Martha MacCallum asked if they went to the coffee shop with the intention of provoking a confrontation.

"No, of course not," Spring said. "We were just a couple friends going to get coffee, having a talk."

He noted that the shop has a sign that says "all are welcome," but he said that apparently does not apply to people who have different thoughts and opinions.

Bring in the lawyers. College Republicans just won themselves a cafe courtesy of stupid snorwflakery. I hope they name the new establishment “The Gipper”.

That’s when you ask for a copy of their ‘policy’, and if they can’t produce it, stay put and wait for the police.

A fist to the face is the proper response to such authoritarianism.

Fascism in the name of feelings.
This is what a maternal dystopia looks like. You don’t have to obey out of strength and unity but because Mommy doesn’t like the vibes, you’re killing the warm fuzzies, you’re evil for threatening her precious widdle babies, I’ll tear you a part for hurting them!

And they do not see the dichotomy between their actions and suing cake makers for not expressing thoughts they don’t believe in....

Never underestimate the left’s hatred of America.
The freedom they have here, that they want to take away from us, they would never have anywhere else.

You can always tell when they’re lyin’, their lips move.

It is seriously time for some Civil Rights lawsuits, aimed not only at the University but at the individuals who are engaged in these discriminatory practices.

Hit 'em in the trust fund, and make it hurt.
