It’s hard to believe that people in this same age range once stormed the beach at Normandy.

The Daily Caller reports:

SHOCK POLL: 36 Percent Of America’s College Students Say Safe Spaces Are ‘Absolutely Necessary’

Well over one-third of America’s adult college students believe that campus “safe spaces” are “absolutely necessary” to assist grown adults who are psychologically traumatized by hearing opinions with which they disagree.

The data comes from a recent poll of 1,659 students currently attending U.S. colleges and universities conducted by LendEDU, a student loan marketplace website.

According to the poll, 36 percent of American college students agree with the proposition that “safe spaces” are “absolutely necessary” on campus.

Just slightly more students — 37 percent — oppose “safe spaces,” agreeing instead that such environments “are completely out of touch from reality.”

The rest of the students — roughly 25 percent — said they are “indifferent” to the concept of “safe spaces.”

The poll, conducted from May 5 to May 11, is based on answers — just the three of them — to the question: “Do you agree with college campuses establishing safe spaces?”

When the safe space supporters graduate, they will not support Freedom of Speech.
