Carnegie Mellon U. Republicans Face Backlash for Painting Conservative Slogans on Fence

Carnegie Mellon U. Republicans Face Backlash for Painting Conservative Slogans on Fence

“It’s supposed to be a place where students can share messages that are oftentimes political or unpopular.”

The slogans these students painted were pretty mild, but liberal students no longer seem to have tolerance for anything Republican.

CMU Republicans receive backlash for painting conservative slogans on fence

A Republican club at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) recently faced backlash after participating in the Painting the Fence competition.

This competition is a CMU tradition dating back to 1923 in which student groups compete to seize control of a campus fence by painting on it.

The CMU Republicans obtained control one day after painting conservative slogans on the fence, such as “Vote Republican” and “Save Our State,” thus sparking backlash from other students.

Images of the Republican-seized fence were posted on an Instagram account dedicated to showcasing the fence’s current standing. As a result, students filled the comment section with over three hundred hateful comments.

“Government overreach? How about how republicans are trying to reach into our f[******] uteruses to decide what we can or cannot do with our bodies???” one user commented.

Another user said “bet they had to camp out for 6 days to force people to see this one.”

The fence was also vandalized after the phrase “the fascist against gay marriage and reproductive rights” was carved into it, according to pictures obtained by Campus Reform.

The carved phrase violates the tradition’s rules, as the fence “must be painted by hand with brushes; otherwise, it is considered vandalism.”

Matthew Kinkead, president of CMU Republicans, criticized the vandalization, saying, “It’s supposed to be a place where students can share messages that are oftentimes political or unpopular.”

“Rarely does the fence get vandalized but so far it has happened every time CMU Republicans has painted it,” Kinkead told Campus Reform.

CMU = Communist Marxist University?

“The carved phrase violates the tradition’s rules”
You forgot the hyper-rule.
When Democrats are losing. the rules must be changed so that they win.
Pack the abolish the preserve the abolish the filibuster border wall supreme court! And do it today tomorrow yesterday!

They loved that tradition (they even show it off to campus visitors) because only they were able to paint on it. When the other side does the same thing, it’s called hate speech.

Fine, I call their messaging, including bothering me about their uteri, hate speech.
