Students say having Chick-Fil-A at their school will put their safe spaces at risk

StaffRebel Columnist

No, it's not vegans who are whining about Chick-Fil-A. It's ultra-left student senators.

According to Campus Reform, student senators at Duquesne University want to cancel of plans to bring Chick-fil-A to campus in the fall because they “fear” for the safety of their peers. No joke.

Duquesne University Student Senator Niko Martini told The Duquesne Duke, “Chick-fil-A has a questionable history on civil rights and human rights.”

“I think it’s imperative [that] the university chooses to do business with organizations that coincide with the [university’s] mission and expectations they give students regarding diversity and inclusion,” he added.

However, as Campus Reform points out, Chick-Fil-A has “virtually cancelled its donations to organizations opposing same-sex marriage.”

The school's Gay-Straight Alliance President, Rachel Coury explained, “I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ community. So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A being in Options [an on-campus food court] that maybe people will feel that safe place is at risk.”

The plan to include Chick-Fil-A at the school was originally developed in response to a survey demanding more chicken options at the campus.

Exactly HOW will a restaurant that sells chicken cause great fear? How will it put gays at risk? These questions are sadly never answered. But if you're worried eating there will somehow cause you great emotional distress how about... not eating there?

Andy, years ago I would have thought exactly that. But these days truth is much stranger than fiction.

Has anybody stopped to consider, that given the evident stupidity of this “protest” , it may be a big joke by some lefties just trying to see how far they can push any and all of their agendas and still get serious press coverage?…

Another jump the shark moment for xenophobic identity politics. Does anyone take these talking sphinkters seriously any more?

Does anyone ever feel like shoving their foot up their safe space?

We used to hit Saint Johns NL to spend weekends at the University because it was weird. Now I would stay away because anyone going to one seems to have all the wrong questions they answer with nothing making sense at all. It was just right weird in 1973 but now it has all gone to some other level.

The real concern is that it is just those Uni political types that will be going into politics in a few short years, and no one will be laughing then! It’ll dissolve into civil war if something isn’t done. And we know the Right are too stupid and timid to look up an opponents past and make it known to the public during an election campaign! I mean, they let just anyone into the party and let them hi-jack it they’re so pathetic!

Hey progressive idiots, where will you go for a safe space when sharia takes over? I mean other than the moon.

Duquesne University of the Holy Spirit is a private Catholic university in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I guess the Catholic Church has turned into a gay-rights crusader.

Oh man, if nothing else these simpletons are good for a laugh, i wonder what they will top this with? If comedians were not so scared of SJW’s they would have years of material to work with.

Equality today, if you ask that member of an LGBT person be treated the same as a non-LGBT person by having to use a public washroom based on physical looks, that is considered discrimination and you have boycotts.

Why because they are “marginalized” according to the elitist left that has the privilege to stereotype groups of people, thus equality to a “marginalized” group is considered discrimination because of allowing such privilege in allowing one group to stereotype everyone of a certain group

Safe places are there for a left-wing paranoid bigots with a chip on their shoulder who see homophobia, racism from whites and sexism from men “under every rock and bush”

But when are the bigots from the left ever made accountable for their bigotry – time to insist conservative politicians will ensure such equality is applied

more evidence of people who have already been educated beyond their intelligence

Chick-fil-A is a Christian-owned business that upholds Christian values in its operation. Can’t have that – its too traumatizing. Unlike the peaceful, woman-respecting hijabs of Islam that are so popular throughout campuses and the other realms of the left.

How soon they forget. The last time we saw this staged, agenda driven faux fear, there were line ups around the block to support Chick-fil-A. Gotta go get in line. Later……

Students say? I think its more like the Student Unions are saying this, and the dead beats who protest every little thing for them. The Student Unions need to be audited to see how much money the UN is sending their way. And those leading the Student Unions need to monitored more closely.

Of course there’s also always the chance you may be eating a gay chicken. How traumatizing and triggering would that be?
