Students Outraged After University Moves 9/11 Memorial

This news should trigger you in your safe space.
“Does the university fear that some students or faculty members might be coerced or harassed by a poignant reminder of the atrocities committed by Muslim terrorists on American soil?"
Todd Starnes

"For the past two years, the Young Americans for Freedom chapter at Southern Methodist University displayed nearly 3,000 American flags on a prominent university lawn to remember those killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

"But Old Glory won’t be posted on the Dallas Hall Lawn this year – even though the display had been well-received by the student body.

"The university objected to the location of the display, citing a revised policy aimed at protecting students from “harmful or triggering” messages.

“ 'While the University respects the rights of students to free speech, the University respects the right of members of the community to avoid messages that are triggering, harmful, or harassing,” the policy reads.

"I reached out to Southern Methodist University to find out who could possibly take offense at a memorial honoring American citizens killed by Muslim terrorists. I had my suspicions, but I wanted to hear it from the university’s leadership.

"Spokesman Kent Best told me the revised policy covers all lawn displays, not just the 9/11 memorial." . . .
