We have as little use for Trump as most Americans, but this is just pathetic.
The president of Emory University has spoken to demonstrators who said they were frightened after someone wrote ‘Trump 2016′ in chalk around campus.
Students at the Atlanta school, which has an enrollment of more than 14,000 claim their ‘safe space’ was violated when the messages appeared on sidewalks and buildings.
Jim Wagner, president of the Atlanta university, wrote Tuesday that the students viewed the messages as intimidation, and they voiced ‘genuine concern and pain’ as a result.
He acted after student government wrote to him and slammed the university’s response, prompting a meeting that led to protests.
Now administrators want to track down those responsible for the controversial markings.
But some commentators on the university’s student newspaper website told the students to grow up and accused them of being babies.
Or as the great Iowahawk has dubbed them, screaming campus garbage babies.
The Wheel also reported that the students this week chanted, ‘You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!’ shortly before Wagner agreed to meet with them.
Their editor, Zak Hudak, posted an editorial addressing what had happened.
He wrote: 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.
