“I am far from the only one on the campus whose physical and mental well being was attacked today”
Can you imagine an adult running for the fainting couch over this? How sad.
The College Fix reports:
Professor almost canceled class after being emotionally ‘shaken’ by students’ ‘Build the Wall’ display
One Cal State LA professor almost canceled class after he was emotionally triggered by seeing a “Build the Wall” display on campus earlier this year, newly released emails obtained by Young America’s Foundation reveal.
“I nearly had to cancel class because of how shaken I am about seeing a ‘Build the Wall’ banner on our campus, and I can tell you I am far from the only one on the campus whose physical and mental well being was attacked today,” Professor Carlos Tejeda said in an email published by YAF on Wednesday.
The foundation obtained that email and others through a public records act request. Tejeda’s email was among several emotionally fraught responses from professors at the university to Cal State LA Young Americans for Freedom chapter’s spring semester activism focused on border security. It included informational tabling, “Build the Wall” signage, and a campus lecture by the Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles.
In response, Professor Melina Abdullah stated that the activism was “blatantly racist,” and called for CSULA President William Covino to “immediately revoke all permits for such programming and student groups that make such hateful work their core,” according to another email obtained and published by YAF.
And in yet another email obtained and highlighted by the foundation, instructor Gabriela Amilivia wrote that if a campus group supports “family separation” policies — or even turning away migrants at the border — that it would be a “criminal act.” Her email, which is riddled with typos, also states she teaches a course on human rights.
