Hats off to student government leaders at Loyola University Maryland, who managed to throw a party with the controversial theme “America” despite heavy opposition from the school’s administration:
The theme for Loyola’s annual “Senior 200s” party — one of four celebrations exclusive to seniors held throughout the year — was based upon a survey of Loyola seniors taken last summer. The party was held on Nov. 18 and went off without a hitch, according to students who attended, despite warnings that the administration might have to get involved if students were offended.
It only takes one moonbat proclaiming that the colors red, white, and blue are offensive to bring down the pudgy fists of the educrats.
The university’s executive vice president, Susan Donovan sent an email to two SGA members claiming she “talked with a number of students and heard from faculty members” about the party. “None of it is positive and it sounds very alienating, divisive and harmful.”
“I encourage you to reconsider this plan in light of the legitimate concerns raised by so many,” Donovan went on to say. “We have made progress in providing a welcoming climate on campus and do we want to reverse that progress with a theme that divides us?”
Making the campus welcoming even for people who love their country is not a priority for the administration.
Sheilah Horton, the university’s dean of students also tried to pressure students to change the party theme, in a lengthy email that portrayed the students as insensitive for not canceling the America theme.
Horton worried that the theme “provides an opportunity for students to dress or behave in a way that offends or oppresses others.”
The mere possibility of witnessing people wearing American flag shirts is traumatic enough to send many a snowflake whimpering back to his safe space, offended and oppressed.
A student government representative who remains anonymous for fear of retaliation from the educrats provides a dose of sanity:
“We should see the theme ‘America’ as a way to forget political divide and come together as a country and class and celebrate all that we have accomplished.”
That’s how it turned out, to the chagrin of the authorities.
