According to the campus bias response team at Skidmore College, Donald Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” is considered to be a racially motivated attack, the College Fix reported Friday.

According to Seth Ian:

The group’s year-end report notes that the term – the tagline of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump — was written on the whiteboards of two female faculty of color, one of whom has “immigrant parentage.” One message appeared in March and another in April in separate buildings.

The report states the slogan “is associated with the political campaign of a candidate widely known to voice anti-immigrant and bigoted views.”

The report concluded that while the group “acknowledges that political speech is free and protected … [t]hese seemingly connected reports suggest a pattern of using the idea of political speech to target specific members of the Skidmore community with biased messaging. As such, the [group] does not interpret these messages as political speech but as racialized, targeted attacks.”

The report also said that a “majority of BRG members do not interpret these messages as political speech but as politicized, racialized, targeted attacks intended to intimidate…”

There were other complaints as well, Ian said:

Other complaints to the bias group included the fact that the words “Muslim Prayer” were crossed out with pen on a poster listing campus chapel services. And the Skidmore women’s field hockey team was put through sensitivity training in January over one complaint against it, according to the report.

The field hockey team had posted fliers advertising one of their games in humorous ways. One of the fliers, however, featured “a young woman who appears to be white and the caption reads: ‘Vamos a la Wagner Park … to watch this senorita own the field against St. Lawrence!’ In the photo, the woman is wearing a sombrero, a fake thin mustache, and a t-shirt that reads ‘Maggie’s Landscaping Crew.’” This was considered by Skidmore to be a bias incident.

The bottom line is that for a growing number of leftists, everything is racist, even if it isn’t.  You see, it’s not really about combating actual racism or bigotry — it’s about controlling thought and speech.

Welcome to Obama’s America…
