Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's exactly what it is.

well I understand you're inclined to think that since you're like 110, but anyway it's middleaged adults who taught them that, kids haven't come up with it on their own problem starts with useless departments and courses on univs

Right of course why would the observations of someone who has seen numerous generations grow to adulthood be valid in any way . You have the internet . Seen any clowns in the woods lately?

Apparently, driving around with a Trump flag on your pickup truck and shouting "Trump" and "Make America Great Again" is now a "hate crime"


Two people who drove through Wellesley College on Wednesday waving a Donald Trump flag were removed by campus security for being “disruptive” to students at Hillary Clinton’s alma mater.
Lisa Barbin, chief of the Wellesley College campus police, sent a campus-wide e-mail informing students of the incident.

“This afternoon there were reports of two disruptive individuals driving through campus in a pickup truck with a Donald Trump flag,” Barbin wrote. “We want you to know that College leadership, Campus Police, and Wellesley Town Police were informed, and the individuals were asked to leave College property without incident. As always, your safety is our first priority.”

The college did not identify the two individuals. No arrests or injuries were reported.

Triggered special snowflakes having a melt down over exposure to political expression that they don't agree with.



“Students should never be made to feel fearful or unsafe on their own campus,” she continued. “We wholeheartedly regret that members of our community impacted the Wellesley College community in such a profoundly negative way.”

Morris said the initial reactions of fear and shock quickly turned into a more powerful reaction.

“We want justice to be served,” she said. “We want a president to be set that you can’t get away with these kinds of hate crimes on college campuses. But also it’s a lot bigger than just this one incident, and I think the general consensus on campus is that we don’t have time anymore to be hurt and to be sad. We’ve got to channel all these emotions into something more positive and more beneficial.”

The quoted section isn't in the Boston Globe's article (anymore?). Did they change the article?

God what stupid post. Anyone driving around any campus waving any flag is going to be told to leave. Especially hypocritical in light of outrage over election protesters

The thought process was pretty obviously "Let's go troll the women's college." I wonder if they even knew Hillary was an alum.




Kind of silly to call it a hate crime (assuming that actually was a real quote), but no shit you're not going to be allowed to drive around somebody else's campus trying to irritate their students.

So much ridiculous stuff going on and people go to the trouble of attempting to elicit outrage over a total non story. The quote came from.......?Study Shows US Death Rate Holding Steady at 100%
