Precious snowflakes in melt-down over chalked messages of ‘TRUMP 2016’

emorytwittertrumpproxyIt’s called Hot’Lanta for a reason, and one of the many reasons very well could be meteorological in nature. Yes, it’s true that snow in the Georgia capital city is rather rare.

But the political forecast calls for a spring-time storm of precious snowflakes centered around the Dogwood City’s über-fragile Emory University. As reported b of the Washington Post on Mar. 24, 2016, unknown person or persons armed with an unknown number of pieces of sidewalk chalk and wrote either “TRUMP 2016” or “VOTE TRUMP”.

While it’s long been known that the sons and daughters of The Empire State of the South are made of sterner stuff, a number of the Emory student body claim they are traumatized by the impromptu Trump signage. But the hyperbole doesn’t end there. The same offended students also claim the chalkings made them feel “frustration,” “pain” and “fear.”

As reported, “Students woke up Monday morning to find messages written in chalk all over campus, in support of Donald Trump. That afternoon, a group of 40 to 50 students protested. According to the student newspaper, the Emory Wheel, they shouted in the quad, ‘You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!’ and then students moved into the administration building calling out, ‘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.’

Jim Wagner, the president of the university in Atlanta, met with the protesters and later sent an email to the campus community, saying, in part, ‘During our conversation, they voiced their genuine concern and pain in the face of this perceived intimidation.'”
