A message mocking students for grieving over Donald Trump’s election victory is being investigated as a hate crime at Edgewood College, a liberal arts school in Madison, Wisconsin, according to Campus Reform.
Truth Revolt (h/t Rob E) According to a letter sent out by Tony Chambers, Vice President for Student Development, a student at the college started a campaign to let students and others express their feelings about the outcome of the election by placing notes on a table in the commons — because today’s college students are all about feelings.
One note, encouraging the college snowflakes to “Suck it up, pussies!”, was placed on the inside window of the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion, traumatizing the grieving, hypersensitive academic community.
“A great deal of fear, sadness, and anger among students, faculty, and staff resulted, especially for those that gather in the [office space],” wrote Chambers. “The message was hateful and harmful toward members of our community. It violated every value that this institution considers to be at its core.”
In response to the terroristic Post-It, staff from the student conduct, human resources, Title IX, and diversity offices convened to decide how to respond to the “hateful message.”
According to Chambers, “the group determined that the message constituted a Hate Crime, based on guidelines from the Jeanne Clery Act and state law.”
He adds the group acted according to college policy and reported the incident to the Madison, Wisconsin Police Department, which is currently investigating it as a “Hate Crime,” and that it is also being investigated through the college’s Student Conduct Process.
“Covert micro-aggressions and overt macro-aggressions appear to have taken on new fervor in higher education since our national election,” Chambers writes. “The frequency, boldness, and severity with which hateful acts have been occurring has, for many, signaled a new era of intolerance, fear, and mistrust in higher education.”
So to be clear, a taunt scrawled on a Post-It is now in the same category as lynching. Sounds like the Hillary supporters at Edgewood College need to suck it up.
MILO Last week, a writer for the Huffington Post stated that “this election was a hate crime” and that anyone who voted for Trump is guilty of a hate crime.
While liberals and their accomplices in the mainstream media moan about supposed “hate crimes” sweeping nation after Trump’s election (many of which are likely hoaxes), they seem to overlook that vast violence perpetrated by anti-Trump/Hillary voters.
As we’ve documented extensively, the violence directed at Trump supporters (with actual video evidence to prove it) far surpasses any supposed violence directed at the left.
Similarly, a 15-year-old Trump supporter from Maryland was beaten by a mob after they saw him wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
As we speak, electoral college members are facing countless death threats from Hillary supporters, some threatening to shoot electoral voters in the head if they choose Trump.
