OP-ED: College kids are proving Trump’s point

OP-ED: College kids are proving Trump’s point

“Why didn’t the dean of students prevent the election?”

George Will was/is part of the Never Trump crowd but even he concedes that campus Trump protesters are showing people why voting for Trump was the right thing to do.

From the New York Post:

College kids are proving Trump’s point

Many undergraduates, their fawn-like eyes wide with astonishment, are wondering: Why didn’t the dean of students prevent the election from disrupting the serenity to which my school has taught me that I am entitled?

Campuses create “safe spaces” where students can shelter from discombobulating thoughts and receive spiritual balm for the trauma of microaggressions. Yet the presidential election came without trigger warnings?

The morning after the election, normal people rose — some elated, some despondent — and went off to actual work. But at Yale, that incubator of late-adolescent infants, a professor responded to “heartfelt notes” from students “in shock” by making that day’s exam optional.

Academia should consider how it contributed to, and reflects Americans’ judgments pertinent to, Donald Trump’s election. The compound of childishness and condescension radiating from campuses is a constant reminder to normal Americans of the decay of protected classes — in this case, tenured faculty and cosseted students.

Somehow I think the next year will destroy even their safe places.
I’m thinking of investing in crayons and pacifiers, I can probably make enough to buy a yacht.
