You hear a lot about leftist bullying toward Donald Trump supporters on college campuses (see #TheChalkening: Michigan Students Call for Arrests Over ‘Offensive’ Chalk Signs… and Bill Maher to Liberal, Emory Students: ‘I Want to Dropkick These Kids’…). Because, tolerance and what have you. But the bullying of Hillary Clinton supporters?
Walk around any college campus and Bernie Sanders’ popularity is immediately apparent. Depending on the climate, you’re likely to see Bernie T-shirts or Bernie sweaters or Bernie hats or Bernie scarves. You’re less likely to encounter Hillary Clinton memorabilia. In a setting where students are meant to be rebelling against the status quo, to be wearing berets and hanging Che Guevara posters on their walls, supporting Clinton just isn’t cool.
“If you’re engaged in activism and you’re a part of the campus left, and then you choose to support Clinton’s campaign … that’s almost a traitorous act,”
“Do I feel more challenged by Bernie supporters? Yeah. Do I feel more challenged in general? Yes, I do,” she said. Ho said she felt she had to “justify” her backing for Clinton to Sanders fans. They see the Hillary supporter as someone who doesn’t really want as much equality as they do. Like: ‘What do you mean why don’t you want free tuition for everyone? It’s not fair. Why don’t you want equal pay for everyone? Why don’t you want to tax the rich? What’s wrong with you?’ Like: you’re evil.”
Yes you’ve read correctly. Hillary Clinton supporters need to create “safe spaces” on campus… from the Bernie supporters. War is hell.
The irony in that this is the exact same kind of attack used by Hillary supporters against Conservatives is not lost on me. It is however, most definitely lost on Hillary supporters.
This is yet another example of just how far leftist intolerance has gone on college campuses. Its no longer enough to be merely intolerant of conservative opinions, they’re now compelled to be intolerant of leftist opinions that aren’t far left enough.
Now, my initial reaction is to just LOL at leftists eating themselves. Their cannibalism is inevitable, and a joy to watch. But then it hits me in the gut… these kids are going to entering the workforce soon. They’ll be running our companies, voting for our governments and even building our planes. These same kids who require “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” and demand that the First Amendment be all but ignored… will soon become the biggest voting block in America. Think about that for a second.
Then, watch the rant against said SJW’s below to soothe your soul.
