It is very possible that 2017 will go down in history as the year that liberalism on college campuses officially reaches critical mass.
Stemming from an insanely angry and vile hatred for the fairly elected President of the United States, malleable millennials have been falling victim to the molding of the mainstream media and celebrity leftists in recent months. Their pure, unadulterated fervor has fomented and festered into some strange from of New Fascism, aimed at clearly eliminating all traces of the American conservative.
They’ve used invented vocabulary to get their point across. Terms such as “triggering” and “micro aggression” are being employed by these fringe lunatics of campus society in an effort to diminish the ability of the older, wiser generation to placate them. After all, you can’t fix what you don’t quite understand. It’s a tricky and underhanded tactic, but the left doesn’t seem to care about fighting fair.
Emory University kicked off the entire nonsensical movement in 2016 after the words “Trump 2016”, written in chalk on campus, caused students to feel “unsafe” and in need of counseling. As if that weren’t enough of an embarrassment for the college, their latest foray into the world of liberal politics should seal their fate.
“Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, has announced that they will fund ‘100 percent’ of financial aid packages for students that are in the country illegally.
“Although international students are expected to pay full tuition, undocumented undergraduate students at Emory will have ‘100% of demonstrated financial need’ covered by the university.“’Emory meets 100% of demonstrated financial need for undergraduate Undocumented Students (with or without DACA) who are admitted as first-year, first-degree-seeking students, and who graduated from a U.S. High school through a combination of grants and scholarships, institutional work study (DACA students only), and institutional loans. Undocumented Students without DACA status may receive an institutional loan in place of the typical work study award,’ the university’s website states.
“Speaking to The College Fix, Megan McRainey, a spokeswoman for Emory, claimed that providing full financial aid relief to undocumented students reflects the university’s commitment to welcoming students from diverse backgrounds.”
Emory, which was considered to be one of the most prestigious schools in the nation, has quickly transformed itself into the punchline of every “social justice” joke in the nation. While the University of California at Berkeley was working its way to the top spot on the “liberal insanity” podium, it seems that Emory was not quite ready to give up the crown in 2017.
