This one is going to have to be filed away in the “We’re Doomed” folder!

The campus snowflake epidemic really blossomed this year and perhaps the ridiculousness is most exemplified in the students at California State University who set up a “healing” space after a conservative gave a speech on campus. But there are two aspects that set this story apart from the rest: One, the speech had been given three months prior. Two, most, if not all, of the students that needed the emotional comfort DIDN’T EVEN ATTEND THE SPEECH!

The mere presence of Ben Shapiro on Cal State’s campus was enough to send these special snowflakes into a frenzied meltdown. National Review posted a description of the “safe space” event:

On February 25th, our campus experienced immense hurt and trauma. Almost two months later, students are still feeling the emotional, mental, and physical effects that this event posed, and nothing has been done to facilitate our healing. How can we help each other heal and move forward? How were you affected emotionally, physically, psychologically?

You would think this is straight out of The Onion, or that you were stuck in The Twilight Zone. But, no, it’s a reality in Obama’s America and it’s only getting worse.

Case in point: There were even complaints made that students had been “shoved” and “abused” during the speech. But guess what? It wasn’t Shapiro’s supporters that were doing this, but the protesters that were doing all the shoving. So in essence, the crybullies need a safe space from the other crybullies. How absurd!

It’s sad facing the reality that colleges are no longer a marketplace of ideas for young minds to explore, but has become a suppressive environment of progressive-only thought that devours any deviation from the program.

Free speech on campus is fast becoming a thing of the past.
