Pitzer College Blues and the Trump Monster

"Carlisle condemned the “hate filled message”—referring to the phrase “Make America,” presumably the first half of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s campaign slogan—that was written over an on-campus mural. Carlisle also stated, “harassment and intimidation will never be accepted at Pitzer” and said that the administration is conducting an investigation to hold someone accountable."

They still haven't identified the evil spray painter who put Trump's name  at Pitzer College, but the campus is in a state of turmoil. I mean students are afraid to leave their dorms until Jack the Tagger is captured. And once student, who is Hispanic, has incurred campus wrath by saying (correctly) that this has nothing to do with hate speech.

Admittedly, vandalism is a crime, but harassment and intimidation? C'mon, Mr Carlisle. Get a grip on yourself. As for these poor little tadpoles, what are they going to do when they get out in the real world, where there are no safe spaces and college administrators to cuddle them?

There you go.
