UNH Official Facebook Page Caught Asking Students to Protest Trump
“Our Power Walk Out and March”
Would it surprise you to learn that it was the Facebook page for the Women’s Studies department? The University of New Hampshire has since apologized.

Public University Asks Students To Protest Trump
he University of New Hampshire (UNH) has issued an apology after one of its official Facebook pages was caught making partisan political posts against Donald Trump and in favor of Hillary Clinton.
In the wake of Trump’s election victory, UNH’s Women’s Studies Program used its Facebook page to encourage students to join a public protest against him.
The program promoted an “Our Power Walk Out and March” event being put on by the UNH College Democrats Nov. 14. The walk-out was explicitly framed as a protest against Trump and his impending presidency.
“WS wants to make sure you know about this march that is happening tomorrow,” the post reads. “We have students who are interested in other forms of protest/activism. If you are interested in planning or participating something, lets [sic] get you connected!”
Later, the program published a follow-up post encouraging students to stop by to receive help in making protest posters for the walk-out.
“Our office will be open until 4:30 p.m. today so please stop on by and make your own poster!” the post urged students.

I hope that (what few) conservative professors at the school schedule a no-make-up quiz for that day, to teach these “special snowflakes” that there can be consequences to actions. A better lesson than they will learn from the walk out.
