This sums up everything wrong with American colleges

The Washington Post reports that the president of Emory University in Atlanta had to meet with 40 to 50 students who were "concerned and frightened" about something that happened on campus.

A terrorist attack? An outbreak of swine flu?

Nope. Someone wrote “Trump 2016” in chalk on campus sidewalks and some buildings.

I'm not making that up. According to the Washington Post: "Jim Wagner, president of the Atlanta university, wrote Tuesday that the students viewed the messages as intimidation, and they voiced 'genuine concern and pain' as a result."

Read it again: "Genuine concern and pain." The Onion might as well shut down--this is more absurd than anything its writers could possibly conjure up.

College has become a place where callow minds march in lockstep to the orthodoxy of their moral superiors, where dissent and critical thinking is not tolerated if they deviate from a far left world view.

When the post-millennials start to run things, folks, the Republic is doomed. In this instance, even calling these children--this hysterical dross--"special snowflakes" isn't fair to real snowflakes, which are sturdier and have far more substance than these dopes.

And sure enough, the president of the University kowtowed to the tyranny of nitwits. The students chanted, “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!” shortly before President Wagner agreed to meet with them. Wagner then wrote a letter acknowledging that he heard their pain about the nefarious chalk. Writing "Trump 2016" sends "a message about values regarding diversity and respect that clash with Emory’s own.”

Trump = bad; people who don't like Trump = good. Got it.

We're finished, folks. They couldn't get any stupider or more pathetic if they tried. And, no, I'm not a Trump supporter.
