Every time I think we can’t see a more ridiculous campus event surrounding Donald Trump, something more absurd happens. First protesting Emory students compared themselves to slaves after Donald Trump chalk showed up on campus — the event sparked a nationwide Trump chalk campaign on behalf of people who weren’t cry bullies on campus — and now a Tulane fraternity’s wall of sandbags outside the house has been dismantled by alleged Tulane football players.
Really, this is the world we’re living in right now.
According to the NOLA.com, “The fraternity erects a wall around its private property every spring during the week leading up to its annual “Old South” formal ball. Leadership in the local chapter said members added GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s name and slogan to this year’s wall as satire, said university spokesman Mike Strecker.”
Satire or not, the football team, which has just one winning season in the past 13 years, showed up and tore down the wall.
So the message on Tulane’s campus is pretty clear, if someone has a political belief that you disagree with, enter their private property and destroy it.
Think that’s okay because you dislike Donald Trump and what he stands for?
Imagine the reaction on Tulane’s campus if another organization had a pro-Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders symbol on their private property and Donald Trump supporters showed up and tore that symbol down. Or, god forbid, how do you think the national media would cover a bunch of white frat guys tearing down a wall meant to honor the black lives matter movement outside the Tulane black student union?
And there we have it, I don’t think Donald Trump would make a good president and I’m not going to vote for him, but the fact that many liberals on campus are unable to handle someone having a different political opinion than them should be terrifying to all of us with functional brains.
Just because you disagree with someone doesn’t mean they don’t have the right to their opinion. And it certainly doesn’t mean you can enter their property and tear down their statements of political belief.
That opinion used be associated with liberal political thought. Amazingly, a belief in the first amendment has now become a conservative value.
Given the climate on college campuses right now, pray for America.
