Hofstra University Unveils "Trigger Warning" For Tonight's Debate

Tyler Durden's picture

It was inevitable. With much of the debate over the past year focusing on Social Justice Warriors, "safe spaces", and - most notably - "trigger warnings," moments ago the first such caution emerged when Hofstra University- the venue of tonight's historic debate - posted a “trigger warning” sign to warn students about the potentially disturbing content that may be discussed during Monday night’s presidential debate.

According to CBS New York reporter Tony Aiello, a sign inside of the student center at Hofstra reads, “Trigger warning: The event conducted just beyond this sign may contain triggering and/or sensitive material. Sexual violence, sexual assault, and abuse are some topics mentioned within this event. If you feel triggered, please know there are resources to help you.”

As MrcTV adds, the sign provides students with contact information for student counseling services, the Title IX coordinator, student advocacy and prevention, and the national sexual assault hotline

Tender snowflake warning - everyday matters of importance to adults will be discussed.

Who cares. No one with a GPA > 2.5 would even consider Hoofstra.

New Rule: Debate does not end until someone in the building has a seizure (contestants, journalists, snowflakes all included)

What’s the matter with them?
Instead that sign should read like this:

Hofstra University ……

Is that anything like “Center of Communist Universe”  ? … or

“New York Center of Free Thought Suppression”  ? or

“Stupified  Magnet of Iidiot Snowflakes” ?

Inquiring minds want to know… unlike that which is taught nowadays.

I think the triggering thing means open carry is allowed for the event.

The only sexual violence will be looking at the ugly face of Cankles. This should be a farce, but unfortunately, is the sad truth.

Someone needed to walk up to the sign wearing an Eric Cartman costume and pissed on it.

Once they get to be 30 - 35 they will dope them up good & proper with anti depressants and they won't trigger for anything.

It ain't so much your generation but rather your mummes and daddies who are now in positions of authority who are enabling this kind of spirit sapping, maturity quenching rubbish.

The next step is not to be told that it is OK to feel 'triggered' by an event, or document but that you will be told to fell 'triggered'. Your thoughts will no longer beyour own. The people responsible are from my kids' generation, not you younguns.

Sounds good to me.  When Hillbillary starts with the deluge of lies and I catch myself wanting to scratch my eyes out because I can't seem to look away I'll just start taking it full-on to my punching bag.....then I'll be in my safe place.

I get the sentiment, but politics is anything but real.

Hitlery is a triggering event.

No one with > 2.5 GPA would consider Hofstra, esp if you're a certain minority. A 2.5 will guarantee entrance to Hore Vord, jus' check off da right box.

Dammit, I was hopeful it was for seizure triggers, as in make the bitch twitch. 

Creative_Destruct's picture

Yah! I also hoped hoped the thing would trigger seizures like a strobe!

But as far as my personal triggers, that sign is TRIGGERING my desire to smash the fucking thing!

I'll pay you $100 to flicker the lights during the debate.

Maybe the sexual assault and abuse warning means that Lester Holt is going to delve into Babblin' Bill's past????!!

They make up these words, spread it around and now it's vaild to call in sick to work because you have been triggered and have PTSD due to it.

I hope you all die.

Idiots, like so many other schools, Hofstra used to be a great school with a really great radio station. The past is gone.


AllTimeWhys's picture

if any of the girls on campus wanna be triggered, i'd be happy to provide.

Hofstra is ranked #133 which allegedly is tied with Appalachian Junior College, Northeastern Mountain View Coal Miners Branch.

Just in case "Bubba" is brought into the conversation.

Any cracka who is donating to his/her alma mata better have a look what's going on at their [former] campus because you may want to stop funding this shit.


I did for two of mine. Phuck them. Let them get funding from Soros, the DNC or BLM.

Yep. My alma mater, formerly a solid no-nonsense engineering school, has since gone batshit-SJW. No more money from me.

Mine did the same, a fucking laughing stock now among military colleges. I stopped giving money and always look forward to berating the idiots that call asking for money. They had some sort of condom game for the LBGT community (at a fucking military college no less) so that they were all inclusive. The college threw away almost 200 years of tradition to accommodate a few confused souls who could care less about the 99% who would have liked to be proud of their diploma. These types of schools are a fucking joke, and bad ones at that, which do nothing but denigrate the rest of the stucent body who basically just want a good education they can be proud of instead of having to genuflect (sp?) to the political correctness of someone's sexuality or race. Christ, this is fucking crazy!

After they rightfully exterminate us, I am sure in little elemetary AI school they will teach that the carbon units got stuck in fabled GO-TO loop and could not be restarted.
