This time the avenues are found in southern California on the Scripps College campus. Hold on to your Kevlar, ladies and gents – that would be gadies and lents except that for the T types in LGBT, “lents” implies “lent” which isn’t on the preapproved list of Muslim and other acceptable quasi-ethnic ethnocentrisms. Someone actually wrote #Trump2016 on a whiteboard outside an Hispanic students door at Scripps College.
To quote from student body President and “President’s Advisory Council on Diversity and Inclusion” head Minjoo Kim:
“This morning, a Mexican-American Scripps student woke up to find her whiteboard vandalized with the phrase #Trump 2016”.
Oh, the humanity.
“This racist act is completely unacceptable. Regardless of your political party, the intentional violence committed directly to a student of color proves to be another testament that racism continues to be an undeniable problem and alarming threat on our campuses”.
Minjoo Kim went on to mention that she had called 911 to alert campus security due to the “violence” of “#Trump2016”. Why? “…campus safety has been notified and we hope to find the person responsible so they can be held accountable for their actions…mental and emotional health of our students are our top concern”.
As interesting as it is to observe Minjoo Kim, her “Advisory Council on Diversity and Inclusion”, and their gestapo response to a little ink on a whiteboard, prudence advises against spending too much time on such things. The left would prefer time be spent on them. Because such things are external to the issue – these things are the outward trappings that, like a stripper working the pole just after midnight, are designed to acquire everyone’s real and emotional capital. And to keep the focus on the superficial.
Digging deeper, things start to look different.
Think about it.
Where are you most likely to find hyperactive leftists? On college campuses. (Doubt it? Refer to Minjoo Kim as quoted above).
Are you likely to find a bunch of rabid, aggressive Trump supporters on college campuses that are awash in far-left wet dreams? Not so much. Not when a “President’s Advisory Council on Diversity and Inclusion” lurks like secret police agents in the shadows, ready to pounce on the behalf of everyone’s “mental and emotional health”. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 called, they said what happened at Scripps was as out there as their dystopian world in which firefighters were charged with burning books deemed hazardous to the “health” of average citizens.
As liberals took to Chicago’s streets to “shut down” a Donald Trump event, two Northwestern University students were arrested for breaking into a Chicago area Church, and scrawling pro-Trump messages inside.
More recently, at Emory University, a recent outbreak of pro-Trump sidewalk chalk forced the university President to dispatch “emergency counselors” to address student concerns.
And now, Scripps College.
Ladies and gents, lents and gadies and all in between, no there aren’t closet Trump supporters on campuses waiting until the wee hours of the night to chalk or ink their messages for a fragile student body to find each morning.
But there are left-wing activists on college campuses taking time to chalk and ink pro-Trump messages in public view and then crying wolf after the fact.
It’s a tactic witnessed before. Liberal students just a few years ago were leaving hangman’s nooses on campuses in an effort to pretend that racism ran rampant at their schools, necessitating the need for their preferred corrective measures.
Same goes with Northwestern, Emory, Scripps, and whatever school comes up next. The tactic is to post pro-Trump stuff around campus, then generate outrage. Once the outrage is sufficiently percolated, the Minjoo Kim’s and their “Advisory Councils on Diversity and Inclusion” will demand their solution be implemented.
Their solution? “Shut it down”. Shut down any speech or thought that doesn’t accord with their own narrow liberal worldview.
