Edgewood College Police Investigating Taunt to Trump Protesters as Hate Crime

Edgewood College Police Investigating Taunt to Trump Protesters as Hate Crime

“act of cowardly hatred”

The language used in a note meant to trigger anti-Trump students may have been crude but hardly warrants an investigation as a hate crime.

Reason reports:

Student’s Reaction to Trump Win: ‘Suck It Up, Pussies.’ Police Are Investigating This Hate Crime.

At Edgewood College, police are investigating a post-it-note that was deemed a “hate crime” by college officials.

The post-it-note says “Suck it up, pussies!” Whoever wrote it also drew a winking, tongue-out smiley face, like this:

;P

The message is evidently one student’s response to the Madison, Wisconsin, college’s overwhelming dejection following Donald Trump’s election to the presidency.

Students had been invited to express their feelings about the election by writing them on post-it-notes and placing them on a designated table. The post-it-note in question appeared in the window of the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion instead, according to Campus Reform.

College Vice President Tony Chambers sent a letter to campus condemning this “act of cowardly hatred” and “intimidation.”

Comments

No need for vulgarity. “Suck it up, Buttercup” would have just as effective.
