I wish there was a video or a named source for Hillary's alleged meltdown. Based on all the things I've heard and read, she can get very nasty...so I believe these reports. Her career is already dead and buried, but a video would be like burying the shovel used to bury her. Half the country would be left asking, "wait, I voted for THAT?!?" It would completely invalidate HRC's argument that she's the only one fit to control the nation's nuclear arsenal.

All of these "Safe Space", "Trigger Warning", and "Micro Aggression" people need to grow up. How did our culture crumble so far as to allow this stupidity to become acceptable anywhere, let alone an institution of higher learning. You're supposed to start outgrowing tantrums at age 5, not 25.

i agree 1000% with dragonlor here, university 'safe space' censorship is a pox and a cancer
yes liberal people, it's 2x as bad when we do it as when the other side censor shit because we're supposed to be better.
however, other points. as much as i disagree with the protestors (not what they're protesting, just that trump should be given a chance) remember that trump latched on to an entire movement of obama was not only not the president, but should have never been the president because he was from kenya. and 2 days before the election trump was saying the election was rigged and the electoral college was shit. so don't rip protesters because you only rip them becasue you disagree with them politically.

Has anyone had a personal experience with `safe spaces` `triggering` blah blah? It`s like the story you learn in health class that PCP makes people turn into the hulk, no one has ever seen it, but it gets quoted all the time. The only source anyone has for this shit is mainstream media, but when its a story that matches your narrative, you latch on to it. the `suck it up buttercup` thing is just a waste of time and money, just like drug testing welfare, when they spent xxx millions of dollars on drug tests (company partly owned by originator of the bill... hmmm) and then caught barely anyone, so they basically spent millions of dollars to `save` a couple hundred thousand, AT MOST, and the millions went into a politicians pocket. Waste money to save money! I`m ranting... the world is fucked.

I don`t doubt the safe spaces stuff is real, but I have a feeling it`s blown out of proportion and is much more rare, especially the extreme cases you hear about, than we expect.
Although I will say that in my years of University back in the late 90s early 2000s, there was definitely an increase in `protection` for students from what I considered ridiculous things. Mostly in the direction of eradicating alcohol not by actually banning it, but by discouraging certain types of parties, and not allowing officially serving alcohol at dorm functions, not allowing upperclassmen to drink during orientation week, stuff like that. I don`t know what it`s like now, but hopefully it hasn`t gotten too bad, the whole point of allowing it (even underagers) on campus was so the freshmen would have older students around just in case. Better to get smashed with lots of people around in a supervisory capacity than to go to a random house party off campus because that`s the only place you can get drunk.
There was also a big crack down on both actual hazing (good) and non-hazing, what i would call bonding, activities as well. Some of the bonding activities I remember not being allowed to do included things like, having the freshmen leap frog down to the cafeteria for lunch (i shit you not) and pretty much anything else that could be embarrassing even if they actively wanted to do it, even if we as upperclassmen also participated and even if we specifically told them at the time and also at the beginning of the week, that if they ever felt uncomfortable doing anything or participating in any activity they were always able to opt out, no questions asked.
