“There are no safe spaces in real life” Ohio University students demand police investigate after Republicans mock 'trigger warnings'

StaffRebel Columnist

The College Republicans at Ohio University decided to mock safe spaces on the school's “graffiti wall” and now left-wingers are demanding a police investigation.

The 'graffiti' read: “Trigger warning: there are no safe spaces in real life. You can't WALL off the first amendment.”

MUST SEE: University turns 'safe space' around on radical students

One offended crybaby took to Twitter saying, “We can start w/ a mandatory investigation because trigger warning is literally a threat.”

Another student, with the account 'socialist redneck' tweeted, “lmao trigger warning i’m going to beat the shit outta whoever wrote that bullshit on the wall.”

According to Campus Reform, OU’s police department then hosted an open discussion with the school’s LGBT Center after the graffiti appeared on the wall.

The now infamous graffiti wall has had a series of controversies starting last week when some students wrote pro-Trump slogans.

As we've documented at The Rebel, writing pro-Trump messages at universities are a really good way to upset left-wing students and trigger them.

After the pro-Trump messages were painted, OU's president apologized to the 'hurt' students.

“Indeed, this wall is a place of free speech and expression; however, the words painted were troubling because they had a very different meaning to some than they may have to others viewing the message or even those who painted the message,” President Roderick McDavis wrote in a campus-wide email.

Of course, apologizing is never the way to go because you're buying into their delusional way of thinking. The world isn't sunshine, rainbows and ponies.

Try saying “safe space” when you’re fighting to prevent a damage deposit from being stolen from you or when a senior employee is insulting you daily for personal amusement.

Doesn’t work and if you don’t learn how to deal now you’re going to have a very, very hard time.

These Neurotics have lived in a psycho babble echo chamber so long they think their asinine jibbering means something in jurisepurudence. Delusion writ large.

If schools think it’s morally right to marginalize a majority of students (who simply wish to learn about things without a political bias to their studies) by turning their school into a politically correct fiasco, then they ought to be re-purposed as parking lots.

When I retired from a university the students expected “entitlement” and had excuses blaming everyone else for their academic shortcomings. That was ten years ago. Now, its safe spaces, trigger warnings, controlled speech, other cultures matter more,expectation for Western civilisation to apologise for anything it may have done 300 years ago, revisionist history, expectation of free university education as a human right, black lives matter (more), give me give me give me.

At most universities in Canada tuition essentially pays for campus maintenance, yet students expected a degree simply by paying tuition. That taxpayers, who subsudise their education (and that of foreign students – my department even had a mandatory fee on Canadian students to help offset the tuition of foreign students) are not well served by their contribution. I witnessed a decrease in general student talent, and administration’s expectations lowered to match the study ethics of the students. So sad.

I witnessed more and more student time devoted to games played on department computers, checking out jihad sites, watching movies instead of studies, demonstrations, blame games, and so on, with departments buckling under to the students; departments taking no action against students who violate even the simplest of rules. In the end, tax payers pay but are not well served by the results.

Staff were more and more concerned not with getting the job done but with negative student comments, complaints against them, being damned either way by administration, and being the fault why a student couldn’t do their work If a student is treated as an adult, expect to be spoken to by the chairman because a parent complained. I remember one student who was failing a course simply because the back cover from the text book was missing. This was the department’s fault because it had (without charge to the student) loaned him a “defective” text book. Then the department bent over backwards to insure he had extended time to complete his work, even assigned a tutor. Complete failure.

So, in the ten years I’ve been retired, its been an even greater drop in academia and an increase in the baby sitter attitude of administration.

(BTW, why can’t spell checkers understand Canadian spelling? Always trying to correct correctly spelled words.)

Trump will not get the nomination. However, Ted Cruz, who is a much more viable and credible candidate, will get the nomination. We can trust in the Texan Cruz. He is moral, married once, and the ideal choice for president.

You’re on crack. Have a look at the delegate count. If Cruz cheats and frauds his way into the GOP, the GOP will hand the White House to Hitlery.

These Safe Space, dumb arsed yahoo’s have been brain washed buy dirty stinking Socialists, since the first day they entered Junior Grade School.

The whole reason the lefty socialist students want Sanders or Clinton is because they know those two will “give” them a living whereas Trump will make them actually work to earn a living. Todays spoiled lazy brats don’t want responsibility and definitely do not want to work for anything. They need to experience tough times like their grandparents did in the thirties. It is coming, protect your wealth and get your money out of the banks. Read sites like TheRebel and people like Martin Armstrong if you want to see what is really happening.
