These days it seems that liberals are so easily offended. Now comes word that students at Emory University were actually traumatized by — wait for it — the phrase “Trump 2016” written in chalk.
That’s right, chalk. Let me repeat that: CHALK.
According to the Emory Wheel:
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.”
Give me a break.
One reader commented:
If the name of a political candidate you do not like written in chalk makes you feel “fear”, then go back home to Mommy and Daddy. You are not ready for college and certainly not ready for the big, bad real world where everyone will not be preoccupied with affirming your delicate “feelings”.
OH NO! CHALK! https://t.co/8p4cYH2ag6

Somebody wrote "Trump 2016" in chalk on an Emory University sidewalk. Students report feeling "unsafe" and "afraid" https://t.co/fFI7K6iitU

Ingraham, Twitchy added, is a verified Washington Post reporter, and the Emory Wheel is not a parody site, which proves that truth is often stranger than fiction.
Seriously, these snowflakes need to grow up and get over themselves. And if they can’t do it on their own, I can think of someone who can help:
- Video: College students don’t know who won Civil War
- College Has to Pay 4.8 Million in Damages After Purging All White Professors
- Video: Black students argue that whites should kill themselves in debate at Harvard
- Harvard student: Free speech hurts liberalism, must be stopped
- Dartmouth liberals threaten ‘physical action’ if list of demands not met
