I really wish this was take from Eye of the Tiber:
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.
Go here to read the rest. Now the University President of course, being a liberal squish, took these idiots seriously and began kowtowing to them. What he should have said is something along these lines:
Are you people serious? You decide to pull a temper tantrum because Trump supporters chalked up a few pro-Trump slogans on campus? We have a presidential election going on. On a campus that celebrates diversity, and all of you love diversity don’t you?, we are going to have Trump supporters among the student body, along with supporters of all other candidates. You don’t like Trump and that is your privilege as an American. You get to support whoever you wish who is running for public office. However, that privilege applies to all Americans and not just those who are in ideological lock step with you. You seem to be arguing that because you are offended, or scared, of some of the things that Trump has said, that the University should come out against him and his supporters. That is not the function of this University and that is not going to happen. Time to grow up ladies and gentlemen. We are trying to prepare you for life in the big world out there. In that world people come in all shapes and sizes. Some of them hold views that you will find repugnant. When you come into contact with such people, stamping your feet, and running to an authority figure is not going to work, at least I hope to God it doesn’t work, because if it does, then freedom will have died in this land. Here is a thought! You are all about tolerance right? Well in regard to people who disagree with you, exercise some tolerance. Try to understand why they hold their views. After that, if you wish, refute their views with logic and reason. If you can’t do that, who knows, maybe there is something to their views, even if you don’t agree with them. We are supposed to be educating you here. One purpose of education is to expose you to a multitude of viewpoints and give you the tools to analyze them, so that you can sort the wheat from the chaff. Demanding that the University censor, or speak out against, viewpoints that you do not like, is directly contrary to that mission. Speaking of education, time for you to get back to your classes, and to do that which is the reason why you, or your parents, or some third party, is paying 63K a year for you to be here.
