No college campus would be complete without the presence of liberal gutter hags. Wherever universities are, leftism seep in. Like anal whispers.
No college pastime is as cherished by tolerant implings than destroying memorials (see Dartmouth College: BlackLivesMatter Destroys and Replaces Police Memorial Display). No vigil is safe from progressive hands. Unless it’s for Che Guevara, in which case, someone get Obama over here for a photo op STAT!
A large poster of Kate Steinle was torn down at the University of California, Berkeley hours after students held a vigil to reflect on her life and mourn the acquittal of the illegal immigrant charged in her death.
As some students spoke, others nearby chanted in dissent.
“They were shouting during my remarks, and throughout the vigil. Before, during and after,” [the] external vice president of the Berkeley College Republicans [said].
After the vigil ended, a small memorial was left behind on the steps of Sproul Hall, including flowers, candles spelling out “Kate,” and an easel with a large picture of Steinle’s smiling face. Before dawn, the poster of Steinle’s face was torn off the stand and put in the trash.
Now, could anyone have ripped down Kate’s smiling face? Sure. Didn’t have to be a social justice trash weasel. We could have a non-partisan, serial poster-ripper on our hands here. Movie theaters beware. But keep in mind leftist students were protesting the vigil. As it was going on. Some were disgruntled by the idea of honoring a woman killed by an undocumented fence hurdler.
This sort of behavior is standard policy at colleges. Dissent from the reigning narrative shall not be tolerated (see College TA Secretly Records Disciplinary Meeting After Sharing Jordan Peterson Clip. It’s Pure Fascism…). It’s punishable by shredding.
Remember the days when universities were safe havens for open minds? Where diverse ideas were not only allowed but encouraged to roam freely?
