Bedwetter alert


It seems a case of bedwetting occurred at Emory University recentlyThe Daily Mail (UK) reports:

Students at Emory University claim they were frightened and 'in pain' after someone wrote 'Trump 2016' in chalk around campus.

Officials at the Atlanta school, which has an enrollment of more than 14,000, were forced to act after the youngsters claimed their 'safe space' was violated when the messages of 'hate' appeared on sidewalks and buildings.

One student even said she 'feared for her life' as she thought a 'KKK rally' was going on, while others were scared a mass shooting was going to take place and wouldn't walk alone.

Jim Wagner, president of the 19th century establishment, wrote Tuesday that the students viewed the scrawling as intimidation, and they voiced 'genuine concern and pain' as a result.

He set up an investigation after members of the student government wrote to him and slammed the university's response, prompting a meeting that was shrouded in protests.

Now administrators at the university, which has roughly a 50:50 ratio of white to minority students, want to track down those responsible for the controversial markings.

They have admitted they went against the university's 'values regarding diversity'.

But some commentators on the university's student newspaper website told those affected by the so-called 'hateful' graffiti to grow up and accused them of being babies. Rest of article
Here is an example of the offending artwork:

 It gets even better.  Emory's student newspaper The Wheel reported:

Roughly 40 students gathered shortly after 4:30 p.m. in the outdoors space between the Administration Building and Goodrich C. White Hall; many students carried signs featuring slogans such as “Stop Trump” or “Stop Hate” and an antiphonal chant addressed to University administration, led by College sophomore Jonathan Peraza, resounded “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!” throughout the Quad. Peraza opened the door to the Administration Building and students moved forward towards the door, shouting “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.” .... (And how much is Emory tuition?)

 “I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe [here],” one student said. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well … I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school,” she added. (Should she even be in school?)..

 “What are we feeling?” Peraza asked those assembled. Responses of “frustration” and “fear” came from around the room, but individual students soon began to offer more detailed, personal reactions to feelings of racial tension that Trump and his ideology bring to the fore....

 Grievances were not restricted to shortcomings of the administration. “[Faculty] are supporting this rhetoric by not ending it,” said one student, who went on to say that “people of color are struggling academically because they are so focused on trying to have a safe community and focus on these issues [related to having safe spaces on campus].” Rest of article.
Best and brightest?

Wait for a few years until they figure out how much debt GeoW, the Kenyan and Congressional RINOs have ladled into their gruel bowls. They are so screwed.

Tuition at Emory? Over $60,000 per year. I feel so bad for these deprived young adults who just have it so difficult. Imagine how they're going to feel when the state Emory is in votes for Trump.

I think there is a big mistake in the article. It says university. Shouldn't that be grade school?

I am an alumnus of Emory and IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME ONE BIT. But of course I have a job.

wait until President Trump...

11:01. While not a Trump fan it would almost be worth it to see him win...the meltdown would be epic. Not to mention Rosie and Whoopie both say they're leaving the country....a win win.

I would love to see HR at a company do a social media check of these students. I can see the interviewer telling the applicant that they are sorry but, if they felt unsafe over this at school they wouldn't last a week in the real world. We don't hire Emory graduates.

If the loonies keep making promises to leave - Trump has my vote!

On the other end of the spectrum, here is a link to photos of Furman University students showing their respect to fallen officer Jacobs of the Greenville, SC Police Department. Maybe we're not beyond repair.

I saw a Trump sign in my neighborhood today. I'm now fearful for my safety.

I agree it's an over-reaction, but I also haven't written in chalk on a side walk or steps since elementary school!

And, I seem to remember that Wallace seemed pretty frightening to some folks and all he wanted to do was keep those folks out of all white places. He didn't mention deporting their parents.

So, I guess any candidate that has the KKK and Neo-Nazis supporting him seems pretty scary to some.

As for me, I find men who marry women young enough to be their daughters creepy and scary whether they are running for President or make movies!

I'm surprised it took 11 comments for someone to make this about race --- well done moron, you can go back to your safe space now.

Pretending Trump hasnt been endorsed by racists and doesn't try to appeal to racists and the religiously intolerant and misogonists is moronic.

Anonymous said...

1:07 pm So you thing Trump wants to build a wall to keep out Caucasians? You think it's accidental that the KKK and Neo Nazis endorse him? You don't think he deliberately feeds prejudice and religious intolerance and chauvinism?

You are the moron!

So my choices are more of the same Hillary. Sold uranium to Russia.
Bernie sanders an open Socialist.
Or Trump an outlier on every issue.

I agree with trump on some things and he turns out to be right. the U.S. Has turned into a globalist view with a pansy attitude.. We used to be nationalists with visions of visiting other planets seems now we are going to be beat by the Chinese in another space race. Anyone know that the Chinese built a space station and it is in orbit? Anyone know the Chinese have already slated to land on the moon? The only candidate I see making us competitive again is Trump. Not a bunch of PC ass clowns begging for a safe room. Grow a sack of nuts and let's get back to solving real issues like how the fuck do we get to Mars

And on another note
Fuck Mexico a failed state without a war.

The U.S. has fallen behind other countries in the past few years. We need a president who will bring the U.S. back where it should be. That is not a dumping ground for those people who will not fight for their own country. We already have plenty of those kind here.

The story is largely false.

While it was true that several dozen Emory University students protested in response to the Trump chalk scrawlings, we were unable to substantiate that anyone (student or administrator) offered emergency counseling, or, indeed, counseling or any sort. Neither did anyone seek counseling that we could see, and no students complained "safe spaces" were violated (though at least one said they felt "unsafe").

The story is largely true. Read the snopes article to find their loopholes for stating "largely false."

Obviously online content was changed in response to their over-reaction, but the lady attempting to write for snopes misses on several key "discrepancies."

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
