Instead of feeling pride at their hircine ability to think for themselves the Trump supporters are now feeling marginalised among the minge costume wearing, placard waving idiots, according to student newspaper Manitou Messenger:
Of the 12 students interviewed by the Manitou Messenger, several have been violently threatened because of their political beliefs, and almost all of them feel as though they can’t speak up about politics on campus – in class, online or with their friends. …Like some liberal students who felt unsafe after the election, a St. Olaf conservative student said she “went home for awhile” because of the animus toward conservatives in her classes. She said online harassment led her to transfer to another school after the fall semester.
On the night of the election, a student in the Pause threatened to beat up [College Republicans President Emily] Schaller, calling her a “f***ing moron.” Over the next couple of days, she overheard multiple students threaten to hurt the next conservative or Republican they saw. Vice President of St. Olaf College Republicans Kathryn Hinderaker ’19 had a similar experience.
“I think one of the hardest things was, the second day, I went into Buntrock and someone yelled from the bottom, ‘if you voted for Trump, you better be f***ing scared.’ Everyone clapped and applauded,” Hinderaker said. “Obviously, it didn’t feel super safe.”
Another Republican student reported that on Feb. 18, a Hillary Clinton supporting hate mob posted an unsolicited photo of a group of students that supposedly included Trump supporters and encouraged fellow students to “remember their faces.”
It’s lonely being conservative at St. Olaf, even though its College Republicans chapter didn’t endorse Donald Trump and refused to phone bank for him in the general election. And it is not just the students who support war loving, hatemongering traitors and war criminals like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. One political science student said her professor “started every class with basically just ridiculing Trump for about 20 minutes,” and she now plans to transfer to another school next year. Another student said his professor’s anti-Trump animus makes him keep quiet so she won’t “possibly bring down my grade.”
But another St. Olaf conservative warns his peers not to act like “some oppressed minority group” because “it engages in the same identity politics that already make it so hard to have constructive conversations about challenging issues.” Quite right, the liberals will keep bullying as long as they are allowed to think they have the upper hand. Challenge them.
This blog feels rather let down by the attitude of these 'conservative students'. Being in an oppressed minority can be fun, especially when the would be oppressors idea of violence is dressing up as a cunt (not that they need costumes to look the part), chanting slogans and waving placards. Some years ago a British politician described being attacked by liberals as being similar to "being savaged by a dead sheep." That being the case (and it is, trust me - and don't ask where the bodies are buried,) the correct response to 'liberals' threatening that you should be scared would be to say, "Why, are you going to stand there and call me a racist while I break every bone in your body one by one.
The illiberal idiots who call themselves 'liberals' these days are snivelling little wet farts. Tell them so and it will 'trigger' an emotional crisis that will keep them in regular psychotherapy sessions for years.
