Emory Students Express Discontent With Administrative Response to Trump Chalkings

UPDATE (3/22 at 9:49 p.m.) Scroll down for the original article:

The following day, University President James W. Wagner, as well as representatives from College Council (CC) and Student Government Association (SGA) sent emails to the Emory community to address student concerns and responses. In his University-wide email, Wagner wrote that he intends to implement “immediate refinements to certain policy and procedural deficiencies, regular and structured opportunities for difficult dialogues, a formal process to institutionalize identification, review and [the] addressing of social justice opportunities and issues and a commitment to an annual retreat to renew our efforts.” Wagner added in his email that the previous day’s chalkings represented “values regarding diversity and respect that clash with Emory’s own.”

In the joint email sent on behalf of CC and SGA, representatives wrote that they “remain unapologetically dedicated to inclusion, diversity and equity,” and that both institutions will stand in solidarity with any Emory students who have encountered a lack of safety and support. To provide Emory students an opportunity to discuss such support and inclusivity on Emory’s campus, SGA will hold office hours on Thursday, March 24 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and CC will hold office hours on Thursday from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

According to the Dobbs University Center’s (DUC) Posting Policy, chalking must be reserved and approved through Emory’s campus reservation service, 25Live. The Posting Policy says that: chalk cannot be on columns or walls, it must be done on horizontal, ground surfaces and areas where rain can easily wash it away. Failure to comply with these policies results in a clean up fee. Chalking also may only remain for 48 hours. After this time, another group can chalk, if they reserve their chalking through 25Live.

The DUC’s Posting Policy also points out that the DUC is guided by the University’s policy on open expression, and any member of the Emory community who violates the open expression of others will be held in violation of said policy.

According to Emory University’s Open Expression Policy 8.14.5.8, “nonpersonal protests” such as chalking, should follow “all applicable flyer posting policies and banner reservation rules.” It also states that “no nonpersonal protests will be denied because of the content” of the display as long as they falls within the law, and that members of the community who “deface the open expression of others” are also violating this policy.

The article will be updated as information becomes available.

Students protested yesterday 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. 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.”

After approximately ten minutes outside from the start of the demonstration, the gathered students were ushered into the Quad-facing entrance to the Administration Building and quickly filled a staircase to continue their demonstration. Pausing in the staircase, a few students shared their initial, personal reactions to the chalkings.

“I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe [here],” one student said. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well … I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school,” she added.

A short time later, students moved into the Henry L. Bowden Board Room, surrounding the long table that dominates its center, the students themselves surrounded by portraits of Emory University’s former presidents.

“What are we feeling?” Peraza asked those assembled. Responses of “frustration” and “fear” came from around the room, but individual students soon began to offer more detailed, personal reactions to feelings of racial tension that Trump and his ideology bring to the fore.

“How can you not [disavow Trump] when Trump’s platform and his values undermine Emory’s values that I believe are diversity and inclusivity when they are obviously not [something that Trump supports]” one student said tearfully. “Banning Muslims? How is that something Emory supports?” asked yet another.

University President James W. Wagner, who had been standing just inside the threshold of the door, had been called  into the board room by students and listened at the head of the table while they described how the appearance of the chalkings made them feel. He addressed several questions throughout the time in the board room, including “Why did the swastikas [on the AEPi house in Fall 2014] receive a quick response while these chalkings did not?” to which Wagner replied that they “represented an outside threat” and clarified that it was a second set of swastikas that received a swift response from the University. “What do we have to do for you to listen to us?” students asked Wagner directly, to which he asked, “What actions should I take?” One student asked if Emory would send out a  University-wide email to “decry the support for this fascist, racist candidate” to which Wagner replied, “No, we will not.” One student clarified that “the University doesn’t have to say they don’t support Trump, but just to acknowledge that there are students on this campus who feel this way about what’s happening … to acknowledge all of us here.”

Other students asked for improving diversity in the “higher positions” of the University, including the Board of Trustees and the faculty in general who should not be simply “diversity sprinkles” to improve statistics, as one student described it.

Grievances were not restricted to shortcomings of the administration. “[Faculty] are supporting this rhetoric by not ending it,” said one student, who went on to say that “people of color are struggling academically because they are so focused on trying to have a safe community and focus on these issues [related to having safe spaces on campus].”

While Wagner initially stated that he would not be writing a University-wide email regarding Trump, after over an hour of discussion in the board room, he appeared to have decided to begin working on an email concerned with at least the chalkings, at which point he gently wrapped up the conversation so that he could begin drafting it.

Assistant Vice President for Community Suzanne Onorato, who was also present during the protest and suggested that she would look into hosting a forum for those involved, agreed with Wagner’s sentiments. “I think it’s wonderful that students are taking a stand for something that they’re passionate about, for something that’s so much about themselves  — and we want to support that,” she said in an interview with the Wheel.

The chalkings that generated such controversy appeared overnight throughout Emory’s campus. College junior Harpreet Singh said that, initially, he did not find the chalkings significant. “I saw one big one, ‘Trump 2016,’ so I thought it was an isolated incident and I didn’t think much of it,” he said. “I thought, ‘Okay, it’s just a guy who wants to write whatever he wants to believe in for his political campaign.’ I was like, ‘Okay, I’m fine with that, to a certain extent.’”

Singh reported having seen multiple chalkings that read “Trump 2016” between Cox Hall Bridge and the Dobbs University Center (DUC). “What I also saw on the steps near Cox [Hall] Bridge was ‘Accept the Inevitable: Trump 2016,’” he said. “That was a bit alarming. What exactly is the inevitable? Why does it have to be accepted?”

The University will review footage “up by the hospital [from] security cameras” to identify those who made the chalkings, Wagner told the protesters. He also added that if they’re students, they will go through the conduct violation process, while if they are from outside of the University, trespassing charges will be pressed.

Organization and coordination of the protest appears to have fermented in individual student groups independently of one another. Singh, who participated in the protests, also had a part in their planning. While he said that each group or community held their own discussions on the chalkings over social media, he noted that “[he] also reached out to the Muslim community” and that several of these students attended the gathering.

While the University has not released an official response as of press time, Donald Trump obviously remains a flashpoint for many students, but according to Singh there is comfort to be found for those who feel oppressed. “For the students, it’s reassuring to see how they are able to voice out their opinions and, although it might be safe or uncomfortable, we know that we have a community behind us, whether that be the Latin[x] community, the Muslim community or the black student community — there are pools of safety we can go to,” Singh said.

            Jon, I’ve just read your older posts. It seems that we were born in the same country and are the same age. I may have known you in real life, but anyway, I must say that I cannot agree with you more on many of your views. I should also like to express my deep respect to you, as if I were in your shoes, I could do no better.
            Unfortunately Emory is not a place for free speech now, nor are many campuses nationwide. Though I am not a fan of Trump, nor do I hate political correctness, it is stupid to stick to superficial political correctness and ignore deeper problems (i.e. the cultural values), which really makes the poor remain poor. Of course, many young liberals do not remain liberal after they leave the campus. Let’s wait and see. America is made great by hard work, then and now.

          Sanders isn’t really a communist and would not support totalitarian policies. Sanders is just dumb in not seeing the whole picture. He mainly expressed interest in Cuba’s communism due to the social programs (which work better there than some developing countries). Let us not attempt to be sensationalist here. You sound like a Fox News pundit using such language.

            What injustice is being perpetrated by chalk drawings of a Presidential candidate who has yet to actually say anything that could be considered racist? Muslim is not a race. He called for a ban on travel from countries known to house Muslim extremists. His son in law is Jewish. His media relations rep is a black woman. What world is this?

            anon 3 years ago

            @arthurramsey:disqus : That is a slippery slope (let’s also be honest, Muslim is often code for those from certain nations who look a certain way. Many Trump supporters for example would assume that an Indian Hindu is Muslim simply because of how they look. GOP candidates are often good at using code) and also, regardless of his media rep….you assume that Trump actually directly interacts with such arms of his campaign.

            Trump and/or supporters would likely claim that all such nations harbor terrorists and simply exclude anyone from such nations from coming whether their government harbors or sponsors extremist or not (some of these places do not even have stable government apparatuses and instead bad actor NGOs host or sponsor terrorists. I am willing to bet that even immigrants from countries without state-sponsored terror would be hindered greatly). What is needed is a strong vetting/screening process for those coming from ANY country (as many radicals also were born in and live in developed countries. Should go both ways as well. Some of America’s crazy evangelicals should not be able to enter another country especially as missionaries). Also, Trump wasn’t so far off from almost entertaining camps in an interview. His ideas/things he claims are ideas are just wack. He pretty much makes stuff up as he goes along and will say anything to activate the base be it subtly racist or directly racist. The guy flat out said with regard to Mexico: “They are sending their______” you know the rest. The “he has a black friend” thing hardly ever works and certainly will not work here. You can be racist or prejudiced against other groups that perhaps you are not used to interacting with (Black, White, and certain Asian ethnicities are normalized in the American context but there are “newcomers” that have turned into “threats” and Trump is exploiting that perception by others).

            No, I don’t make a lot of assumptions in this case. You are but one data point. Many polls and experience (as in reports from news media outlets after say, terrorist attacks or high terror alerts) tell us that such language to most whites (a HUGE amount of Trump’s support, probably most of it) and even others (perhaps non-Asian if you want to get specific) who would vote for him does indeed trigger certain images. There have been several instances of non-Muslim “brown” folks (as in not Hispanic or Latino) who have been attacked even physically by whites in this country. To deny that “Muslim” does not conjure a certain image in America and to claim that mentions of the religion conjure images based on “facts” for most just simply is silly and a bit overly optimistic and you know it(you still haven’t learned how to argue in a way that makes sense and assume that other folks who engage you don’t know anything about the U.S’s media landscape or political climate so you continue to throw what you think are curveballs just for the sake of doing so. As normal, I choose to bite). Using yourself as a datapoint is not ample evidence to refute the idea that Trump supporters or even Americans as a whole have enough geographic literacy (it has been historically poor) to imagine say, a black person (as many Africans are Muslim for obvious historical reasons) or an Indonesian as a Muslim. There is ample evidence whether based on polls anecdotal that demonstrates our lack of nuance in this area. Just because you know these things does not mean most of his supporters who are American do. Also, This slippery slope seems awful reminiscent of this period in the 1900s in America (low and mid. I remember the Chinese Exclusion Act and camps for the Japanese). My idea of slipper slope is based on historical precedent and the language I see being used in these campaigns and actually IS in context unlike what you claimed about Sanders. As a supporter, you should beware of this much like a Clinton supporter expecting great improvements for the middle-class may want to adjust their expectations.

            I know that the evangelicals are well known for their terrorism overseas. A scourge on the planet. Seriously?

            No one is trying to keep possibly extremist Muslims out to keep them from sharing about their religion; barely 100 miles away from me an extremist shot up two military facilities as an act of terrorism. Brussels today. NYC in 2001. This isn’t rocket science.

            And not but a few days after Trump talked about the illegal immigrants from Mexico, a woman in San Franciso was murdered by an illegal immigrant. In trying to find the specifics on that story, I came across the story of Marilyn Pharis who was raped and beaten and died 8 days later from her injuries at the hands of an illegal immigrant. Illegal immigrants are operating a large human trafficking organization that has been discovered even in the reaches of rural Tennessee. Not all illegal immigrants are bad, but in allowing so many such leeway, we leave the door open for these evil people as well.

            I’m actually not a Trump supporter, but I find the pure hysterics and vitriol coming from some people over him to be completely ridiculous. When the man’s name being written on a wall causes someone to be unsafe (in Atlanta…not exactly the safest city) it’s beyond ridiculous. I hope these students don’t end up in a hotel checking the mattresses. Some of those are the Serta Trump line. They’d lose their minds.

            Yes, because the goal was primarily to impress you, a person I don’t know. The goal is say something evidence based or more nuanced than others in this comment section which is mainly a sea of emotional and buzzword based BS right now. It may not have impressed you, but apparently it affected you somehow for you to respond to it as opposed to the other stuff on here.

            The irony is, Trump supporters have real cause to feel unsafe because “protesters” (read: instigators) who have come to Trump rallies started fights, rushed the stage, threatened, bullied, and shouted down any dissent. It is they who by action have demonstrated to be the actual threats. I have yet to see any Trump supporter be a threat.

      Mr. McKenzie, did you contact the alumni giving office (and cc: the administration too) and tell them exactly why you have stopped donating? Otherwise, I don’t think that colleges get the message, they just assume that you have lost interest or can’t afford it. Alums who are sick and tired of these shenanigans and really want their voices to be heard need to directly tell the alumni office and the administration that donations will cease as long as these sort of crybully antics are not just tolerated but endorsed. Otherwise it just goes on and on.

    Emory Student for Justice: I don’t believe you understand the whole concept of free speech. But humor me, how does “Trump 2016” affect your ability to live? Because it doesn’t agree with your personal beliefs? You do realize that by asking them to restrict the people who write “Trump 2016” you’re opening up your own thoughts and beliefs to being restricted? How about if Emory states that no student can chalk anything, can’t even draw a four square court on the ground, I thought we were in the world of trying to grant more freedoms, not to take rights away from others, even if you don’t agree with them.

    Emory is a private college, if you don’t like things there, leave. The college doesn’t owe you anything, and it’s clear that you’re not taking advantage of the education they offer, as you’d rather protest about others thoughts then to form thoughts of your own.

            I’m primary concerned that the named students in the Wheel are going to be targeted. It was a small minority of students that actually reacted to the chalk, and others were protesting about completely different problems on campus. I think the reaction to some little chalk writing is silly, but that doesn’t excuse others from completely dismissing the rest of the university who is embarrassed. At the moment, the Wheel (and Emory’s) Facebook pages are being spammed with posts about the damn chalk.

Do you realize how many Facebook potshots I am already taking from friends and colleagues over this???? Dozens. Decisions have consequences and so does crying wolf over chalk drawings. Therefore, the administration should have told these students to return to their studies and further disturbance would lead to disciplinary action. End of story. Emory supports the free exchange of ideas and facilitates an environment of diversity. Period. This is all a scam by students to either gain leverage with the administration as seen at U Missouri, Yale, Harvard, etc or simple effort aversion in order to get out of work assignments. Nothing more. No one with a lick of sense should be incensed to protest over chalk drawings of a leading candidate. There is a leadership void and an environmental issue with the lack of acceptance at Universities in the country. This episode only brings that fact closer to our environment. Personally, I reach out to those with differing views than my own, I am conservative to the core, because those are folks that challenge my thinking and provide me the greatest opportunity at learning. My worldview is not so fragile to be shaken by opposing arguments. This behavior is that of fragility and mental and emotional immaturity.

            I think there should definitely be a discussion about this, but now the university has a major PR catastrophe to take care of. Nobody is stifling free speech at Emory, at all. The problem is–People literally complained about it because they thought they were being targeted, and the Wheel took that story and ran with it. Now the rest of the student body is pissed and fighting about it.

            I’m very disappointed that a student paper of all things would jump on a typical campus protest and make it into controversy when a vast majority of students disagree.

            As they should be as it lowers the value of their education. Why do not the students attempt to police this themselves. Why was no one willing to tell them to think this through or advise them to be more accepting??? There was no threat to them. Young people have lost their ability to provide independent thought. It’s all groupthink, I must fit in or else I’ll be a target. Where is the leadership among the student body and focus on personal development??? You’re in college to learn and prepare for the workforce, not to be coddled and therefore incapable of productivity in the real world. Be honest or be ridiculed. If Emory does nothing to condemn this type of fascist, un-American, non-civilized behavior then the ridicule is deserved. Is it freedom of speech or not? There is no gray area. This behavior deserves robust ridicule. Decisions have consequences and better learned now than later.

            How could they not address it when a University wide email was sent out by the President? I went looking for articles only after receiving the email. The failure was to acknowledge the legitimacy of the protesters rather than send them back to their studies. Leadership is required here as young folks need it. Perhaps they are confused or full of emotion? Even a greater need for clear leadership that provides what is and is not acceptable. Otherwise these types of incidents will only increase in frequency.

Being a conservative in academia is not easy at all and no, there is no freedom to express my “minority” views.

People complain about our educational system, but they haven’t realized why it has declined. Most of these young kids don’t even know what socialism, capitalism, and communism are. They just hear free handout from socialists and capitalism is evil. Every last one of us participates in capitalism.
            Thank you for continuing to teach regardless of those who are literally racist against you.. I hear many parents complain about their kids unable to voice their thoughts because they are afraid to fail the class. That is sad. Maybe these socialist professors might learn something.
            I speak my mind. I stood up to the teamsters at work. And I engaged in conversations with liberals. We can’t fix problems by shutting people off.

            I chose not to pursue a career in academics after I earned my Ph.D. a good many years ago … primarily because I did not want to play the games that faculty have to play to get along and to be promoted. Conforming to absurd political standards would not likely have been a big factor in my field (geology), but all of the other nonsense would have been painful to tolerate. I wish you well. Just remember that you are probably on double-secret probation because of your conservative leanings.

            I am old enough to remember a Christian America that was conservative. We were proud to be Americans. Everyone had the same moral values and treated people with respect. I am from the west, so racism isn’t and wasn’t the issue it is in the south or back east. One of my kids now lives back east and is astounded at the attitude she receives. My daughter is not use to such prejudges; it surprised her. She is nice to everyone no matter what. That is the way she was raised and how it is in the west or mid-west. Even when a black person automatically treats her as a racist because she is white, she still treats them with friendly respect. Then the surprise is on them and barriers are taken down. We follow the golden rule.

            doesn’t excuse others from completely dismissing the rest of the
            university who are embarrassed.”

            I think that’s because the impression given is that the rest of the university isn’t speaking up against the coddling of the individuals who are “frightened” of chalk supporting Trump.
            If that was my college, and I were still attending it, I would make it clear that my college shouldn’t be “investigating” who wrote chalk markings supporting a candidate.

      Emory’s President, Jim Wagner, should be ashamed of himself for letting the Crybullies believe that they have a legitimate point. But, hey, I’ll let you judge for yourself. Here’s Wagner’s statement on the allegedly evil Trump chalkings:

      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. Instead, the students with whom I spoke heard a message, not about political process or candidate choice, but instead about values regarding diversity and respect that clash with Emory’s own.

      As an academic community, we must value and encourage the expression of ideas, vigorous debate, speech, dissent, and protest. At the same time, our commitment to respect, civility, and inclusion calls us to provide a safe environment that inspires and supports courageous inquiry. It is important that we recognize, listen to, and honor the concerns of these students, as well as faculty and staff who may feel similarly.

      On the heels of work begun by students last fall and advanced last month through the Racial Justice Retreat and subsequent working groups, Emory is taking a number of significant steps:

      Immediate refinements to certain policy and procedural deficiencies (for example, our bias incident reporting and response process)

      Regular and structured opportunities for difficult dialogues (like the Transforming Community Project of several years ago)

      A formal process to institutionalize identification, review, and addressing of social justice opportunities and issues; and

      Commitment to an annual retreat to renew our efforts.

      To keep moving forward, we must continue to engage in rich and meaningful dialogue around critical issues facing our nation and our society. I learn from every conversation like the one that took place yesterday and know that further conversations are necessary. More than that, such discussions should lead to action that continues to foster a more just and inclusive Emory.

      Sincerely,

      Jim Wagner

    I get the feeling that the support being expressed could potentially ironic or being sarcastic. There was someone last semester who did this in the library……also, even if Trump is a horrendous prospect, people (as they already have) ARE allowed to express their support. You should not be allowed to suppress such expressions. You may speak of or chalk in opposing viewpoints but do not complain to the administration because the speech was allowed. I pretty much hate Trumps politics and viewpoints, but am not here to suppress expressions of support for a presidential candidate simply because I find their ideas disagreeable. Nor will I be up in arms about this sort of incident (By the way, while many supporters of Trump are riled up racists, some actually are attracted to the wealth and celebrity aspect unfortunately and think it translates into running a country well….his support is a bit more complex so keep that in mind when you suppress expressions of support. Last I remember, Hillary isn’t particularly the best when it comes to issues of race or social justice, yet no one would be up in arms over her supporters. Back in the 50s and 60s, expressions support for someone Bernie Sanders would have been suppressed or even prosecuted due to the anti-Communist and socialist fervor at the time. I am uncomfortable with all of these scenarios). If you want to protest Trump for real, attend one of his actual rallies, or have an anti-Trump protest. Don’t tell anyone to swiftly act by suppressing such expressions. Soon we’ll migrate toward thought crimes.

I wonder what would happen if white students complained about a BLM chalking??? I mean they only advocate murdering police officers and ask whites to commit suicide due to white privilege. I would hope President Wagner would tell any such complaining students to take a hike. Stop fostering these hyper-sensitive behaviors as they are illegitimate.

Mind you, at a place like Harvard, Wagner would have been pressured to pack his stuff….remember the Larry Summers incident?).

        Uhmmm..Wagner is leaving anyway and the Missouri incident was actually much more serious IMO. The racial climate at Missouri is actually kind of toxic (as proven by the fallout of that incident). This case at Emory is just a matter of folks being “soft” if you ask me. I am for social justice and complaints and protests when it is actually deserved, but I am not going to lie (even as a URM) and say I feel unsafe by a person or persons claiming to support Donald Trump (If anything, I feel a little sorry for many of them as they are kind of being easily deceived into doing so. I am fairly liberal but do not ever endorse any democratic candidates without a lack of cynicism). I personally don’t know what suppressing them in such a way (by claiming it = swastika) achieves at all. I personally don’t get comfort in knowing that there could be lots of people with really bad ideas hiding in plain sight. Pretending that these folks do not exist gives no comfort. If someone has bad and perhaps even dangerous ideas, I would actually like to know who they are, how many they are, in hopes that such folks can be educated (on why the evidence, if any, behind their ideas is false) as opposed to shouted down or forced into an angry hiding. Emory is an educational institution. Supposedly it educates (though whether students want an actual education is a question in and of itself. As folks say: “Education is one thing people are willing to pay for and not get” and should do so. Let’s get the good and bad ideas out there on the table for people to actually discuss instead pretending that bad ideas that aren’t ours (yes, despite some liberals claiming to be for social justice, our logic and ideology is perhaps good in principle but far from impossible. Suppression of not really even hate speech and social justice have hardly no connection to me. Expensive private schools like this already specialize in coddling us academically and in terms of quality of life with fancy amenities and the like. Now we are to be coddled from ideas or opinions we oppose….awesome(sarcasm)! All for the sake of making the place less like a school and more like a “home” as the annoying girl at Yale suggested) do not exist and seeking the help of the administration to provide a faux “safe”environment.

Emory just issued a respectable defense of the value of free speech on campus several days ago. I think the institution, as a whole, is taking the right approach (and a stronger one than many colleges over the last several years), but this particular fight is just…not that important. Regardless, the right seems to think it was too placating and these students still aren’t happy with it regardless, so apparently it wasn’t the right approach either way.

            Yes, the hurt feelings of 40 students is not the hill to die on with respect to free speech. Political speech happens every day on Emory’s campus, they have no history of inhibiting it. There isn’t any reason to make some grand statement about the value of political speech over chalk drawings that said basically nothing and offended basically nobody. Again, pick your battles. You would choose to pick this battle for exactly the opposite reason that these students have. Both of you are stupid for doing so. This is a non-issue.

            Sorry, but the adminstration decided to weigh in on what the 40 students had to say. Silence or some bland noncommital statement well may have been options, but once the administation decided to address the matter, in substantive fashion, the choice was to make a strong statement or make a weak one. In any event, there would have been no serious downside to a ringing endorsement of free speech; nobody woud be “dying” on a “hill,” to borrow your entirely inapt notion. BTW, if you can’t stick to reasoned argument, and have to call people “stupid,” then we are going to have to bring your mother into this. As you ought to know, it is best not to speak of her.

        I am not a Trump supporter, but think a dose of reality is due to the folks in vapors at him winning. First, we might actually see Congress reasserts its rightful Constitutional role. They let Obama trash the Constitution, but the irony is they may rein Trump in. Next, Trump can’t do anything unilaterally since he can’t pass law. He will have to work with Congress to get anything done. He can’t resort to executive orders and ignoring the law since he slammed Obama for it.

        On the plus side, Trump lives to make deals. He may relish trying to negotiate with the Congress, as it puts him in his native element. What would make sense if to find some common ground and get quick wins on things like tax reform and border security.

        Again, I am not a fan, but deal-making is a core political skill and Trump has this in spades. If he has a GOP Congress to temper him, he may do better than expected. With expectations so low, a few quick wins on agreed-to legislation would serve him strategically. He wants to be seen as a guy who gets things done — but so does the GOP Congress (the base wants to see some action, not excuses). If Trump and Congress work together on some legislation viewed favorably by the base, they both gain. Think of it as political profit via a good deal.

    “according to Singh there is comfort to be found for those who feel oppressed. “For the students, it’s reassuring to see how they are able to voice out their opinions”

    It’s difficult to tell whether Singh is too stupid or too ideological to see the paradox of his statement. He and the other Buttercup Bolsheviks are reassured that they have the freedom of speech to voice their opinions while simultaneously trying to deny other students their right to voice their opinions. Oh, the irony.

    This story hits on so many of the characteristics of today’s Social Justice Warriors — double standards, feelings over logic and rights, defining all differing views as “hate”, and a growing totalitarianism. While the students’ crybaby tone is hilarious, the growing trend of their repressive actions across numerous college campuses is a bad sign for America’s future.

    What is wrong with these children that they are so fragile, so incapable of dealing with the slightest stress or conflict, that they demand to be protected from any opinion that doesn’t match their own?
    Progressivism, as proscribed by the professors and administration of the American University system, has turned these children into weaklings, and simultaneously, monsters.

    Let’s flip this around. If I see “Sanders 2016,” then I feel “unsafe” because Bernie wants to seize my money and give it to others. That leads to trauma, and suggests that Emory “devalues” and “invalidates” me.

    It’s easy indeed to play the same moronic game as the campus snowflakes: SImply regurgitate, mindlessly, a series of campus-left label words. What a load of garbage.

    Shame on the Emory administration for giving the tantrum-throwers the time of day. The correct administrstion repsonse would have been: “Support for a political candidate is a standard and accepted form of speech in the U.S.A., whether on a public or a private campus. If you don’t like it, too bad. P.S. You really need to get your diapers changed. You smell.”

Are the commentators here really “better” somehow than the kids in the story, as they endlessly insinuate? Did none of them every say or do anything foolish as youngsters? I see a lot of knee-jerk reactions to this story but very little critical thought.

            And look at the huffy responses I’m getting. People are getting super defensive over an extremely non-general insinuation they aren’t necessarily all that themselves. I find it telling.

            But no, silencing opposing viewpoints is bad policy. It’s anti-democratic. I get why Trump scares these kids, but they can’t hide from him.

Yeah surprise-surprise you spoiled, silly faux-intellectuals: there are people outside of your little far-left “safe space” bubble who actually *gasp* HAVE DIFFERENT VIEWS FROM YOURS, I know, I know, it’s terrifying, but surely you can manage it, just like everybody else. It’s amazing watching college students preach about “diversity” and “inclusiveness” but then demand complete conformity of thought and the ostracism or even punishment of those who don’t share you ideology. You are some of the most closed-minded, regressive people on the planet, and you are FAR more regressive than Trump could ever be on his worst day.

The real world is going to scare the ever loving s**t out of yall. There will be many people who you come across with different opinion than you that will probably destroy your fragile senses. I was going to vote 3rd party this year because Trump is a huge dumbass and aweful man, but your actions brought me back to his side.

      You shouldn’t judge people based on how things were in your time. The sad reality is that regardless of where you go to school now, it is hard to find a good paying job. People just aren’t hiring millennials and there are multiple reasons for that trend; from changes in technology to decreased rates of retirement in the older generation and the devaluation of a college degree. You shouldn’t shame people under 30 for living at home when that has become commonplace as a result of circumstances beyond their control. If they do not wish to live at home and are doing there best to change the situation then there is no need to mock them and honestly even if they live at home by choice they are beyond your reprieve. What matters is individual happiness and that is not at all related to your arbitrary standards about how they should live their lives. Instead of commenting on students far younger than you, perhaps you should analyze your own happiness and determine what brought you so low that you would try to undermine the efforts of those far younger than yourself.

Our system is so flawed that both parties should reflect on themselves rather than simply blame each other, which is slothful and irresponsible.

        Millennials can’t get jobs in large measure because of the elected officials these same millennials elected to high office. They first bought “hope and change” and now are wanting a geezer socialist who promises them lots of cool free stuff.

        Oh, and they also studied at declining institutions that sold them worthless degrees. You want a job? Then study a field where folks are hiring — and at a place where adults are still in charge. Then go to class, not to a protest (riot).

        At the same age as these whiners my grandparents were weathering the great depression working around a farm for boiled rabbits and potato soup. Toughen up, snowflakes.

          Kaiser 3 years ago

          Wrong on all counts. First of all, it takes a very long time for the government to bring about economic change, the current economic climate cannot be blamed on the single president some millennials may have voted for. The current economic climate is probably more a result of those that came before him than him, perhaps someone else could have done a better job to make immediate change, but someone else was not elected so debating over who could or would have done a better job is pointless. Secondly the only people with the right to elect the president is the electoral college, they are the ones that did electing. In reality, voting for the president makes little difference. We do not actually vote on the president but on who will represent us in the electoral college. In many states, members of the electoral college do not even have to go with what the voters thought was best (there are over 80 recorded instances of electoral college voters voting against popular opinion).Next, the institutions are not declining, the problem is that everyone is getting college degrees. As a result, there is more competition for the same jobs and the value of a bachelors as a whole has gone down. In addition, the quantity of people with bachelors degrees has made it hard to find jobs that will hire those without degrees which forced more people to go to college and exacerbated the problem. In your day or your grandfathers day it was a lot easier to get a job without a college degree, that is no longer true. Not only is it necessary to get a college degree now, but it is far more expensive and almost all millennials have to deal with massive student loans as a result. Saying study a field where folks are hiring is ridiculous, because it is nearly impossible to predict what that is. The media has created a false shortage of S.T.E.M degrees, but in reality a shortage does not exist and this is true in many fields, in addition in the coming years many jobs will be lost to machines and people will be forced to do jobs that are “hiring” now, crowding people out. Did you know that people in your grandparents age during the great depression actually had it better than millennials that are living now based on modern work environment? The modern workforce is unnecessarily overworked. They actually work now more than ever before, even during the great depression and for less money, because of outdated hiring practices. Did you know that the average worker in the US works 10 work weeks (420 hours) more than the average worker in germany for the same money? Most of the modern american workforce works from 9-5 5 days a week, based on research done, this lowers worker moral and lowers productivity (workers only really work 45 percent of the time but have to be there anyway) and this situation is far worse now than it was during the great depression. Geezer socialist? You know who else is voting for him? The man that the character of Gordon Gekko is based on. Do you know why? Because his ideas to fix the economy are the only ones that make sense in terms of money velocity. The economy will collapse if money is not redistributed so that the poor and middle class have more money and time so that they can feed the economy by increasing spending.

Just because they are making a stand does not mean that they are right and I am not advocating their beliefs or their approach to problem solving, but you are condemning them for speaking their mind and as a result are guilty for the same intolerance to other ideas you are condemning. My point is just that people are being ridiculous and condemning Emory and its students as a whole because they find fault with the actions or behavior of a few students. Even if you look at something inane like Emory’s yik yak you’d see that most the student body is making fun of the people that reacted to this and don’t share the same opinions. This whole thing is being blown completely out of proportion.

        It is exactly the proper response. When alumni donations start declining at a rapid clip there are bound to be questions by enquiring minds. Minds that may actually care a great deal about the university and its bottom line. People get fired all the time over silly little issues like money. When enough faculty and administrators have been shown the error of their ways, change will come about rather swiftly.

    I also demand they be educated in programs that teach them to honor political, intellectual and cultural diversity and to understand the pain they cause people like me by supporting Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton, by expressing their views in any form, and especially by engaging in these risible copycat protests and pity parties.

    The desire for the so-called “safety” being demanded is contemptible. I wonder if these students understand how wildly implausible it is that they could be unsafe because a speaker with outrageous ideas speaks on campus? Obviously they are being taught to complain that that sort of thing is lack of safety. That is a dishonest and cowardly doctrine. If robbers and rapists attack them, _that_ is a lack of safety worth complaining about; freedom from that is the kind of safety they are entitled to. Hearing ideas they disagree with is a part of their education.

      This is not so much of a blessing, considering we’ll all be paying for these unemployable morons in the form of useless government jobs, unproductive sloth and welfare, increased incompetency when they become our “bosses” in the bureaucracy, etc.

      These societal cast-offs have consequences – they don’t just “go away”, far from it.

      The problem is the American culture of putting too much stock in a useless “job license”. Our company has finally gotten wise and stopped making a bachelor degree a “requirement” for promotion. We’ve also stopped encouraging our promising employees to get a degree (it’s just too distracting and a worthless use of valuable man-hours).

      Colleges like Emory and Harvard “prepare” students to run an office, not manage a business environment. I would never trust anybody fresh out of college to run so much as a single CNC on our floor no matter how fluent he was at macro-programming. The ability to manage resources and time with maturity is not something these “elite” colleges prepare their students for – even their engineering schools are famously worthless, little more than credentialism.

      Whether that gives even these private colleges pause (though they’re all publicly funded one way or another), or inspires them to lash out, they’ll be uncomfortable, at the least.

      Exactly. That’s my biggest beef with the online “aww, special snowflakes!” reactions. Human nature hasn’t changed, kids are what kids have always been. And these kids’ problem is not that they are especially sensitive, not made of the stuff they’re grandparents’ generation was made of. They’re made of exactly the same stuff. No, these kids’ problem is that they have been failed by the adults in their lives. They are what they have been raised to be, and anybody who complains about the kids is complaining about the wrong person.

      Parents, government officials, and school administrators. That’s where the problem lies.

      1. Read the article, yes there are chalking rules, no these leftist snowflake fascists are not upset because these rules were broken, they’re upset that they were confronted with an opposing political viewpoint and that hurt their feefees.

      2. This is leftist fascism, pure and simple. These leftists do not want to debate their positions in the open market place of ideas, they want leftist doctrine spoon fed to them and have those that disagree with them outed in a public sphere akin to Maoist struggle sessions.

          Then you have no concept of what a “personal attack” means. These sheltered children are driven by their emotions, they claim to be “in pain” because they encountered a political viewpoint they oppose, hence their “feelings” were hurt and they demand protection from those in power to silence that opposing viewpoint. There are strong parallels between the actions of leftists in college today with those students in China during the cultural revolution.

And a little worried about the direction our country will take as these kids graduate and go out into the real world. If you haven’t noticed, these tantrums are not simply going on at Emory, and they are not only about Trump 2016. College age kids (and yes, kids, as they do not act even a little like adults) are trying to squelch any speech but what they like on campuses all over this country. Safe places. Scared of chalk. Coloring books and counselors. If you don’t like the derision with which so many of us hold them, don’t read the comments.

      A neutral rule prohibiting “chalking” as a form of vandalism would be fine. However, I doubt that these students would be afraid of “Bernie 2016” on the sidewalk and it would probably be overlooked.

      There is a much larger issue here. People should not be encouraged to be weak. They need to be encouraged to be strong. Bad ideas need to be responded to with good ideas. The desire to simply ban uncomfortable ideas because they cause pain is so damaging to society and these kids.

      Another thing – one of the strategies tyrannical governments used on their people was the redefinition of words. This is happening on campuses with regard to the word “safe”. The word has been robbed of its meaning. It is simply impossible for a neutral message like “Trump 2016” written on a sidewalk to make someone unsafe.

      1. Avatar
        James Howard 3 years ago

        “Trump 2016” is not a neutral message. It may not be a message that does direct harm to others (I agree, that’s absurd), but to call it or “Bernie 2016” a neutral message ignores precisely what free speech protects. It protects expression even when it’s not neutral.

        I wish these students had protested Trump 2016. I wish they had used procedural methods like rules surrounding vandalism. And I wish the Trump chalkers had made special efforts to either stay within these rules (giving the protesters no opportunity) or that they will challenge these rules. I want better engagements that don’t immediately descend into the depths of people’s prejudices about millennials or nanny generations.

        If you accept that people should respond to bad ideas with good ideas, then you probably agree that attacking these kids and telling them to go back to their parents attacks a bad idea with another bad idea. The desire to simply exclude people you disagree with because they represent X bad thing is damaging to society and to these commenters.

          I guess by neutral I meant non-threatening. If the message was “Kill the fascist liberal students!” then there might be reason for concern.

          Many (most) people do not generally argue in the most refined way. Name-calling or sneering condensation are not the best strategies. However, the behavior of these kids is so absurd that the kids themselves do need to challenged. Their character needs to be examined and criticized. They need to be taken to task. They need to be taught honor and strength.

          I just realized that I did not use the word neutral to describe “Trump 2016”. I used it to describe a rule against vandalism. This rule would be content-neutral, meaning it would be enforced without the content of the message having any effect on enforcement (hopefully).

            James Howard 3 years ago

            The loaded terms of your question aside (they never identify themselves as revolutionaries), readers should be competent enough to identify these points themselves. I’ll point out three, and then distinguish one point often identified with the students but which lies securely within the purview of the administration

            1. They oppose Mr. Trump on several grounds. Some allude to particular policy suggestions like banning all Muslims from entering the US. Others alluded to racism and other policy issues.

            2. They want the university to disavow Trump as a candidate or, lacking that, to acknowledge that people on the campus do not agree with Trump or his policies.

            3. Within the previous claims at least one person implied that they want a ban on speech because of its content (“[Faculty] are supporting this rhetoric by not ending it”).

            Then the university, without further prompting, began investigating whether the postings were within university codes of conduct for chalk writing on university property.

            1 and 2 are not free speech issues. People may agree or disagree with these points, but they constitute no violation of free speech. 3 might, if you believe that campaigning for Trump doesn’t constitute a personal attack or some form of non-protected speech. Independently, so might the university’s response, if you believe that chalking (regardless of content) should not be regulated on campus.

            Telling these kids to go back to their mothers and fathers fails to contribute meaningfully to any of these points. At best, it’s mere venting. At worst, they obscure legitimate concerns about free speech for the sake of hating on a few students, while missing that the only teeth here are in the administration’s response.

            The fact that they are carrying signs addressing the “chains” they are force to endure by being exposed to chalk of the sidewalk certainly questions their level of “competence”.
            The real question is, do they get so worked up over other illicit graffiti on campus or is their spleen venting reserved for politicians they’re supposed to oppose? It’s an absolute guarantee that were the “chalking” deemed to be a form of tagging the same group opposing it would be strenuously defending it.
            All in all it’s not a question of free speech but rather of thin skinned children incapable of accepting that there are those who disagree with them.

            “Thin-skinned” –

            To take from the article – one student felt “unsafe” simply at the thought that someone on campus wanted Trump for President.

            Now, I’m not a Trump supporter – far from it. But, it is simply a fact that a lot of people are. Emory College is in Georgia where Mr. Trump received more than half a million votes.

            So, this young lady is so delicate she feels “unsafe” with the possibility that she attends school near any of those half-million primary voters, to say nothing of the ones who didn’t vote but would still support him.

            That’s pretty much the definition of “thin-skinned” – being so delicate you cannot handle even being near a large segment of the population simply because they have committed the “crime” of thinking differently than you.

            “Children”

            They are young adults but they are certainly acting like children – loud, emotional, irrational responses to innocuous events.

      It’s perfectly reasonable to add your voice to that of others in a forum like this. You might as well ask, why did 40 students join the protest against the signs; wouldn’t one of them be sufficient? The fact is, the presidents wouldn’t meet with one student, and one comment here would not demonstrate how widespread is the disdain that large numbers of people feel for both the Emory students who feel “threatened” by others’ free expression and the Emory administration that endeavors to shut down free expression.

Immediately it launches into judging the kids rather than judging issues of free speech. “Immature brats” – “take offense” – and yet in making *them* the focus of your attention, how are you any different? You’re taking offense.

            No, taking offense isn’t an issue, or any speech that felt strongly about an issue would be suspect, including the commenters here. That misses the issues involving free speech. Why isn’t the focus specific to either one student’s request for a ban (which would obviously violate free speech) or the university’s use of laws to regulate chalking on campus (which might regulate free speech if the decision to execute the rules were connected to content)?

            I don’t want them to shut up. I want them to be better advocates for free speech issues. I want them to consider the deleterious effects of attacking the people they dislike rather than building strong cases against the violations of rights or the ideas being represented here. I understand that legal bans don’t produce good speech. My comments to y’all are similar to the ones I’d make to the student protesters – focus on the issue. Speak in ways that would engage a neutral audience. Build support for a particular idea, not a general ideology and not a prejudice or fear.

            You are missing the important point.

            We aren’t judging the kids for their speech, but for their actions and the amount of outrage they are exhibiting.

            It’s histrionic behavior, like a temper tantrum – typical of children, and should be treated as such.

            I think very few people give two seconds of thought concerning their political beliefs, much less judging them for it.

            If this was a bunch of pro-trump supporters treating a pro-Bernie “chalking” the same way – most of us would be laughing just as hard.

            The ridicule isn’t about “free speech” – it is about this children reacting to a benign statement as though it was Mein Kampf and freaking out.

            It’s pathetic.

            LOL…wow..you never took a logic class, did you?

            First off – everybody judges. You can deny it or be honest with it. You are judging the comments here thinking we are being too hard on the kids – which by your “logic” would mean you also are “throwing a tantrum” by judging me.

            Secondly – the fact that you cannot tell the difference between a calm post on a message board from me laughing at these kids and kids going to the dean of their schools demanding “safe spaces” and censorship of benign political speech…specifically, which one of these is a “tantrum” speaks VOLUMES.

            Here’s a hint (if you have this problem in the future) – the person who is laughing and making zero requests for anyone to do anything different isn’t throwing a tantrum.

            You are trying to draw this moral equivalency here – that people here discussing the idiocy of this event are no better than the kids demanding safe spaces and acting like they are Freedom Riders because they lived through the horror of the Great Chalking of 2016.

            The problem you have is there ISN’T a moral equivalency.

            I’m not telling them to shut up.
            I’m not telling them not to protest.
            I’m not trying to use the powers of authority to silence them.

            That ALONE – separates me and puts me light years ahead of them on the “supporting free speech” standard – and you trying to draw equivalency between us is simply laughable.

            What I (and most of these posters are doing) – is exercising OUR free speech and ridiculing these kids for acting in a ridiculous manner, making them pay the social cost for their ridiculous actions.

            THAT is how you adjust behavior while not curbing their free speech.

            You let em talk – you just point out how stupid they are being because that is what they do to their peers and what they are conditioned to react to.

            They couldn’t possibly care less about your “lets all have a respectful discussion on this and treat all sides equally” rap – that doesn’t register.

            Having the majority of the country laughing at them does.

            Heh…you never studied logic, did you?

            Firstly – everyone judges other people. It’s part of being human. You are judging me now (and everyone else you are calling “trolls”) – using your “logic” – that would make you throwing a tantrum too.

            Secondly – tantrums are determined by two things – emotion (specifically, anger) and actions. The only actions I have done are the same as you – simply typing at a keyboard, and I am hardly emotional over this – I think it is hilarious and sad, but there isn’t any anger in it.

            What you are missing is that your pretentious preening and wanting to give these kids “respect” for this is part of what brought us to this point in America. You are treating their childish rants as though they have merit – just arguing against their censorship.

            Do you think that’s better? Do you think that it’s OK for them to honestly feel traumatized over CHALK and that it’s appropriate for them to act like they have been horribly abused and mistreated?

            That’s what giving this behavior “respect” does.

            You are part of the problem.

            No offense, Mr. Howard – but you seem to be missing the point of the ridicule.

            I doubt many of the people on this thread would have batted an eye if these students held an “Anti-Trump” rally to show their opposition to him – or defaced the chalkings to say “Never Trump – 2016” – or any number of what are regarded as somewhat reasonable responses (relatively speaking) on seeing political speech you strongly disagree with.

            I believe most of the people commenting here wouldn’t even have read the story in the first place, much less commented.

            The ridicule of the students is rightly focused on the fact that these students are treating benign political speech as though it were a hate crime – demanding “safe spaces” and using laughably pretentious slogans like “the only thing we have to lose is our chains”.

            This wasn’t the Kent State Shooting or the church bombings of the 60’s.

            IT’S CHALK ON THE SIDEWALK.

            It’s chalk on the sidewalk that doesn’t even have a racial slur, threat, or even the specific endorsement of a controversial policy.

            The boils down to this – if these kids cannot handle something as benign and inoffensive as this, they are horribly, laughably, ridiculously unprepared for the real world – and we need to stop coddling this behavior and pretending like it is justified or reasonable.

            It isn’t.

            These kids need to realize that part of being a grown up is being tolerant of other beliefs and realizing that you can’t “run to Mon/Dad/School official” every time you see something you don’t like.

    I remember when my little boy was about 4 or 5, he had a stuffed elephant he carried with him everywhere and elephants were his favorite animal. In kindergarden, he met a boy who said lions were his favorite animal and he didn’t like elephants. Later that day, my 5 yr old complained to me, almost in tears, that this boy did not like elephants and it was not right. I had to have a long talk with my 5 year old that people are different and have different opinions, and we should respect each other’s right to form our own opinions, and focus on the things we have in common instead of the things that separate us. Now they are friends and share their toys, even though one likes lions and the other likes elephants. Apparently, no one taught these delicate students that lesson.

        Seriously? You actually compare this to a “McCarthy-Like Blacklist” and think it is “censoring political beliefs”?

        It boils down to reliability.

        If a person is so entitled and delicate that they think someone writing a completely non-threatening slogan on a sidewalk warrants a protest or university action – then they likely aren’t someone who will adapt well to a corporate setting, or the real world for that matter.

        I could care less what a person’s political beliefs are – but, if they are the type of person who falls to pieces from “Trump 2016” written in chalk on a sidewalk, then I cannot rely on them to meet deadlines or work under pressure.

        Who knows? Maybe they will go to lunch and see a Trump commercial or (heaven forbid) actually eat lunch sitting next to people talking about his policies – we’d have to call the paramedics.

        Past generations of kids their age were in combat or working to feed their families. These kids are protesting against non-threatening, non-slur, political advocacy. I’m sure political cartoons make them lose their damn minds.

        These kids are rightfully being ridiculed because of this – coddling them and giving this type of nonsense “respect” is what brought us to this point.

    Wonder if you guys realize how much of a laughingstock you are. Trump is a terrible candidate, but he is also someone supported by a significant percentage of the population, like it or not. People are entitled to support him, just as they are entitled to support Bernie or Hillary. That some of you feel entitled to a world in which no one supports Trump is insane. Grow up.

    And honestly, how do you expect to function in the real world if this upsets you so much? Not everyone can live on a Patreon and a YouTube channel. Some of you will have to get actual jobs, where you will have actual colleagues who hold views that you find vile. You will not be able to tell your boss that her views are problematic and you need to be shielded from them. You will need to suck it up and be adults. Have you learned how to do that?

          The term socialism doesn’t have the same effect for young people, for sure, largely because they have not been correctly educated about the horrible reality that is socialism. If you knew your history, you would know that, too.

          Where has socialism – meaning the government ownership of the means of production – been successful in developed countries? Please don’t try to pass off a few Scandinavian countries as your example. They are mixed economy but not socialist states, as they have private companies and they support meritocracy. In addition, they have had to make reforms over the past few decades to make them more market-oriented in order to support their welfare programs. How about Cuba, Venezuela, and North Korea? Their governments own everything and run everything. How is socialism working there?

            Anyway, to answer your question, I don’t know, it could be the xenophobia, racism, bigotry, misogyny, homophobia of Trump and/or his followers which makes me question his ability to lead this nation. Add into it that he is a vain, egomaniacal, vindictive, petty, thin skinned person who was put into the game on 3rd base and scored on someone else’s sacrifice fly but thinks he hit a home run. His lack of depth and breadth of knowledge in areas of both foreign and domestic political policy is stunning and his only claim to being a good executive leader for this nation is that he is a successful business man, despite a long list of failed companies and bankruptcies in his wake. As a veteran, the fact that he belittled John McCain, regardless of how you feel about the Senator’s politics, service and imprisonment during Vietnam, tried to run street vendors, many of who were veterans, off of 5th Ave., used us as a prop in his political circus (as everyone else does) and has failed to come through and pass the money he raised along to the veterans charities he claimed he was raising it for.

            So, Ms Sweet feel free to vote for this man all you want, it is your God given right as a citizen of this nation. But he is a charlatan that is duping you and his other followers and using fear, lies and mistrust to get you to follow him. He is not going to bring back the manufacturing jobs, open the closed coal mines, reinvigorate the steel industry, regardless of what he says. Those days are behind us and I’d rather a leader who is looking ahead to new industries and businesses rather than making false promises about bringing back the old.

    Emory University, “safe space” of the regressive left. As a longtime sel-identified liberal I’m appalled. Guys, sometimes things in the world might make you a little uncomfortable. Sometimes people may express an opinion different from your own. If all you have to worry about are “microaggressions” then you are so, so privileged.

      They want a safe space from chalk? Wow, try telling the Yahzidis that. They need a “safe space” from ISIS. How about the citizens of Paris and now Brussels? They too could use a “safe space” from ISIS. It seems ISIS doesn’t use chalk for their aggressions.

      “If all you have to worry about are “microaggressions” then you are so, so privileged.” Confirmation Bias, that is very well stated!

    As an Emory grad ’04, I hope the university will not sink to the level of these students and dignify their attack on free speech. It should be the duty of our university to help these kids understand that the civilized, educated response to speech you do not agree with is to respond with your own speech. Trying to use force to shut down ideas you do not like, or perhaps even despise, is the anti-thesis of a liberal education and a free society.

      Looks like the chalking may have happened without the proper approval of the school, So my question is would the school have approved such chalking if the approval was sought? Would it be unjust to deny the approval being that Trump is the (unfortunately) likely nominee of a major political party? Is it fair to label him racist? Is it fair to condemn his followers for wanting an end to illegal immigration and a check on extremist terror?

    The first thing Emory University President James W. Wagner should do, is to restrict their television privileges, so they are not exposed to anything new from TV, and get scared to death by seeing a real political ad or news story about Trump. Then lock them in their rooms, and not allow them to come out unless they are escorted and wearing blinders, so they can not see any political signs or ads mentioning Trump, since they are so sensitive and will break into convulsions. In other words, I am calling BS on this whole protest.

    These kids, who watch TV, see ads, are on the internet and their smart phones day and night, see much much worse, and are probably some of the most offensive offenders of uncivil political discourse (which is their right). But to try to claim injury due to “chalkings of “trump 2016” is to engage in the worst type of facist, “brown shirt” types of political censorship. What is the worst offense of this situation, is that Wagner has bought into and is supoprting this thinly veiled attempt to censor political discourse. The school should have their status as a non-profit removed.

    But are the grades the same?

    Outside of engineers, scientists, and physicians, and perhaps a few other fields, these kids are not getting an education, but an indoctrination.

    Any “Social Justice” major (Victim Identity Studies) that shows up on a resume warns an employer not to hire them.

    “I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe [here],” one student said.
    No, you aren’t, you are supposed to be challenged at college, to expand your horizons, to learn tolerance and respect for all view points, and to learn the tools of dialogue and debate that will enable you to critically examine not just your own feelings and beliefs, but those of others, without feeling threatened, hostile, enraged, or outraged. If you want someplace safe, there are institutions of mental health that would be happy to help you. Otherwise, your parents are wasting their (or the taxpayers) money sending you to a fine university if you insist on spending the entire time hiding in your hug box. And shame on the administration that continues to cater to these emotional, immature brats.

            Trump is actually pretty liberal except on the immigration issues, if you examine his claims closely. He advocates big government, he seems progressive in many social values, etc. It is certain that Trump’s supports and Sanders’ overlap a lot. I do appreciate that Mr. Trump serves as a massager of the previously neglected working class, forcing the establishment politicians to face their past mistakes and negligences; unfortunately there are many. Still, I wonder how much Trump truly believe his very own words.

    “remain unapologetically dedicated to inclusion, diversity and equity,”

    They are dedicated to inclusion unless that means including people who disagree profoundly with them. They are dedicated to diversity – except for diversity of thought, which in point of fact is the kind of diversity that universities exist to provide and protect. They are dedicated to equity – unless someone thinks they should have an equal right to express conservative thought.

    Then they will experience emotional overload and demand that they be protected by the University from having anything like that happen, even if it means using the power of the authorities to suppress other students’ First Amendment rights. Because those students and their right to express themselves is not to be extended equity.

    “’How can you not [disavow Trump] when Trump’s platform and his values undermine Emory’s values that I believe are diversity and inclusivity when they are obviously not [something that Trump supports]’ one student said tearfully. ‘Banning Muslims? How is that something Emory supports?’ asked yet another.”

    Emory University explicitly should NOT take a position on Trump – or Cruz, or Clinton or Sanders. It’s position should be to make sure that everyone at Emory University is free to express their viewpoints and opinions, regardless of whether everyone or no one at the University agrees with it. Furthermore, it is the University’s job to ensure that no one interferes with anyone else making such an expression. It is supposed to provide an environment that ensures that ideas stand and fall on their own merits as expressed by the people presenting them and as judged by the people hearing them, without any preference shown for any of the viewpoints by the University itself.

    “I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe [here],” one student said.

    The school should provide what physical security is normal for a college campus. Like any adult, however, you are in the end responsible for taking care of yourself and to take such precautions as are generally necessary. If you want to be treated like an adult, act like one.

    “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well”

    False logic. Absence of condemnation of a particular viewpoint does not equal approval of that viewpoint. And as an academic institution the University should NEVER express approval or dissapproval of any viewpoint in public debate (although it should comply with all non-discrimination laws when hiring, admitting students, etc.).

    “‘ … I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school,’ she added.”

    If encountering a viewpoint that you disagree with emphatically makes you feel afraid, then yes – yes, you do deserve to feel afraid. I suggest you seek professional counseling to overcome this phobia.

    Again – if you want to be treated as an adult, act like one.

        I’m not going to take the time to list all of the schools where these snowflakes have protested because they’re “afraid” of other viewpoints. The very idea makes me think that these so-called “schools” are doing more harm than if the kids never learned to read (those that actually have learned to read, I mean).

            The schools decide what the students hear, who they see, and what ideas they are exposed to (few, very few). They indulge them in their self-coddling by even listening to ludicrous complaints like these, never mind actually taking them seriously and acting upon them.

    My generation fought for free speech on campuses. We never thought that 50 years later a new generation would be fighting against it. These protesters have been coddled all their lives and constantly told they are special. They were raised in environments without risk or challenges. Now the slightest affront to their delicate sensibilities throws them into a panic. Are we becoming a nation of wimps?
