CASE Western Reserve University is providing “safe rooms” for students and faculty who need to be sheltered after being traumatized by the RNC. No. I’m not joking.
Case Western’s internal e-newsletter, informs students — and professors, and administrators — that the private school’s Social Justice Institute “will host a ‘safe space’” in the basement of concrete-laden Crawford Hall for the duration of the convention, which runs from July 18 to July 21.
At some point, the university must have decided even the “safe space” was not going to be sufficient in preventing trauma to students and faculty, so they decided to shut down operations on campus. Oh, did I mention, the campus dormitories were being used to house all the extra law enforcement brought in to monitor the RNC? I guess a “safe space” just wasn’t going to do it for these folks. Remember when having 100’s of police officers around actually made people feel safer?
These “kids” are young adults attending a school that costs $60k+/year. But they can’t handle “seeing” a gathering of conservative Americans or having extra law enforcement on campus? How do you expect them to be productive citizens if they can’t handle being around 50% of the population and are traumatized by the mere sight of police officers?
Parents, if you’re paying for this school, you might wanna rethink that decision… NOW!
