Just last week, a student at the University of Calgary was allegedly attacked for wearing a Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” hat while walking through MacEwan Hall, the busiest space on campus.
I had a chance to catch up with some conservative students to get their reactions to the incident.
Some of these students frequently wear the same, or similar hats on campus and I was curious to see whether they’re worried about thugs attacking them for wearing clothing that might be triggering.
Watch as they share their concerns about safety and also, whether or not they feel they are being treated differently by the university, and media, due to their conservative views.
At the time of this story, the university still hasn’t spoken out about the incident which happened one week ago.
Compare this to the incident at Mount Royal University last month when the president spoke out in favour of free speech after a vocal outburst occurred over another student wearing the same hat.
