Emory Students Traumatized By Trump 2016 Signs, Get Emergency Counseling

Here's one for the 'good grief files'.

Some students at the prestigious Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, were so freaked out about seeing some  "Trump 2016" signs written in chalk around the campus, the university is now providing emergency counseling for the poor wee traumatized millennials.

According to student paper The Emory Wheel, the triggered students protested outside the administration building chanting, “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!”

“I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe,” one female student said. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well … I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school.”

The university quickly responded in an email: “By nature of the fact that for a significant portion of our student population, the messages represent particularly bigoted opinions, policies, and rhetoric directed at populations represented at Emory University, we would like to express our concern regarding the values espoused by the messages displayed, and our sympathy for the pain experienced by members of our community.”

“It is clear to us that these statements are triggering for many of you,” they continued. “As a result, both College Council and the Student Government Association pledge to stand in solidarity with those communities who feel threatened by this incident and to help navigate the student body through it and the environment of distrust and unease it has created.”
This might be laughable, but what I find truly frightening is that they are actively investigating who the culprit might be so that they can deal with them through Emory's "conduct violation process."

What happened to free speech.  Love or hate Trump, people have the right to vote for whomever they choose.
