Over-Reacting or Under-Reacting?

March 24, 2016

Some students at Emory University felt threatened by the words “Trump 2016” scrawled in chalk on buildings and sidewalks. They demonstrated, and demanded a meeting with the university president, saying that the messages made them feel concerned and frightened.

One one hand, I’m wondering how long they’re going to last in the real world if chalk scrawls throw them into such a tizzy.

On the other hand, I’m thinking that if responsible adults had protested Trump’s remarks and shenanigans on the campaign trail this vigorously, the Republican Party might not be worried about being stuck with him today.
