The special snowflake students at Emory University are “scared and in pain” over the word “Trump” and “Trump 2016” written in chalk on the sidewalks and steps at the Atlanta school. Images like these terrified the students and ‘violated their safe place’:
Organizations around the campus have offered counseling for these special snowflakes who have been upset by this scary graffiti on their campus.
The President of the University, Jim Wagner, has issued a four point plan to deal with these frightening circumstances. Wagner has proposed,
‘immediate refinements to certain policies and procedural deficiencies; regular and structured opportunities for difficult dialogues; a formal process to institutionalize identification, review and addressing of social justice opportunities and issues; and commitment to an annual retreat to renew [their] efforts.’
I have no clue what that means. More from the Daily Mail UK,
Wagner added that the Freedom of Expression Committee is meeting to address whether the person or people responsible for the chalking were in compliance with Emory’s policy.
He said that they would debate technical issues, such as whether or not the chalkings were done on an appropriate surface.
Oh yes, words written in chalk must be on appropriate surfaces. Always. It’s so frightening when one finds chalk words in inappropriate places like sidewalks and steps!
The student newspaper, The Wheel, reported that students on campus were chanting at the university President prior to his meeting with them, “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!”
Zak Hudak, editor of The Wheel said,
I do not take lightly the fears and pains of those students who felt victimized by the ‘Trump 2016’ chalkings around campus, and I try my best to support oppressed groups on campus.
Those so-very-special snowflakes, my heart breaks for the pain they are in. I am so glad that the Zak and the University President understand and can be there for those precious little dears.
Parents of these oh-so-easily offended crybabies are paying $63,058 a year for their children to be pampered, coddle and hugged by Emory University.
Trump won the Georgia primary and I can only imagine the deep, deep, pain it caused the students at Emory University. Please keep them in your thoughts.
UPDATE: I have just learned that student government at Emory will provide emergency funds to help those who are in pain. Thank goodness someone is coming to help these poor students cope with their pain! More here.
