Conservative Students "Violently Threatened" At Lutheran College

Tyler Durden's picture

Via TheCollegeFix.com,

Four in five students at St. Olaf College, a Lutheran liberal arts school, voted for the Clinton/Kaine ticket in 2016, while Trump/Pence drew 1 in 10 and Johnson/Weld 1 in 20.

But it’s not only that feeling of marginalization that has led conservative students to stay in the closet at the Minnesota school known for its music program, according to student newspaper Manitou Messenger:

Of the 12 students interviewed by the Manitou Messenger, several have been violently threatened because of their political beliefs, and almost all of them feel as though they can’t speak up about politics on campus – in class, online or with their friends. …

 

On the night of the election, a student in the Pause threatened to beat up [College Republicans President Emily] Schaller, calling her a “f***ing moron.” Over the next couple of days, she overheard multiple students threaten to hurt the next conservative or Republican they saw. Vice President of St. Olaf College Republicans Kathryn Hinderaker ’19 had a similar experience.

 

“I think one of the hardest things was, the second day, I went into Buntrock and someone yelled from the bottom, ‘if you voted for Trump, you better be f***ing scared.’ Everyone clapped and applauded,” Hinderaker said. “Obviously, it didn’t feel super safe.”

Like some liberal students who felt unsafe after the election, a St. Olaf conservative student said she “went home for awhile” because of the animus toward conservatives in her classes. She said online harassment led her to transfer to another school after the fall semester.

And there’s this:

On Feb. 18, a student posted an unsolicited photo of a group of students that supposedly included Trump supporters and encouraged fellow students to “remember their faces.”

It’s lonely being conservative at St. Olaf, even though its College Republicans chapter didn’t endorse Donald Trump and refused to phone bank for him in the general election:

In response to St. Olaf’s predominantly liberal campus, many conservative students choose to stay under the radar for fear of being cast out and misunderstood by their peers.

 

“A lot of people said the characteristics of the candidates were the characteristics of the voters,” Dawson Kremlacek ’20 said. “Conservatives didn’t want those labels. They didn’t want to be viewed differently.”

 

As a result, students will self-censor during class, even in discussion-based courses.

 

“I’m fine being political with a one-on-one discussion,” [freshman Josh] Larson said, “but when everyone else is liberal in the class … I keep my head down.”

One political science student said her professor “started every class with basically just ridiculing Trump for about 20 minutes,” and she now plans to transfer to another school next year. Another student said his professor’s anti-Trump animus makes him keep quiet so she won’t “possibly bring down my grade.”

But another St. Olaf conservative warns his peers not to act like “some oppressed minority group” because “it engages in the same identity politics that already make it so hard to have constructive conversations about challenging issues.”

Minneapolis alt-weekly City Pages notes that the St. Olaf administration invited the former Communist Party USA candidate Angela Davis to speak earlier this month (without noting her controversial past), and it renamed an arts building after sexual harassment allegations against its namesake -a dead professor – were made.

At St. Olaf, 4 out of 3 students don't understand fractions or basic math.

Maybe math is conservative art, not liberal?

The day I voted for Trump, a special snowflake called the cops on me.

 

The cops and I had a good chuckle. No idea why they called the cops on me. Even the cops were confused.

At some point conservatives are going to realize they really have no choice but to go into the dragon's lair of higher education and slay the fucking dragon.  All conservative ideals were lost in higher education many years ago.  You want the nation back?  That's where you have to gain ground first.  

Higher ed turns out endless hordes of militant liberals every fucking year.  Class after class, it never stops.  Oh, and they're using your money to do it.

Olaf college sounds like it needs more diversity...cut off its funding until there are equal numbers of conservatives enrolled as liberals.

AldousHuxley's picture

liberal arts major is akin to rich white surburb kids listening to gangster rap or Brazilian Favela ghetto tours for rich Europeans.

It is fun for them and more real than a reality show on TV, but rich kids will go back to their safe "careers" through connections and graduate school paid by parents once they get it out of their system.

 

Feel "special" amongst poorly paid academics

Feel "rebellious" against the family business

Feel "popular" and accepted by the masses for being one of them.

 

then they get over it, marry someone rich, and get back to ruling the masses

 

Example: Nicky Hilton married James Rothschild and probably will have a respectable socialite position

Example: Chelsea Clinton married goldman banker and found "work" at Clinton Foundation. 

 

Then colleges will claim, "see, they majored in liberal bullshit arts" but ended up wealthy as a VP of bullshit social function chair to funnel political donations through them.

The reputation of schools such as St. Olaf College will get out to the business community and that will be the end of hires.  Would you hire a graduate of this place?

No it doesn't. We're too busy taxing the producers, producing social safety nets and free insurance, and everybody wins trophies for them to learn from the consequences of their actions. It's just as big a problem as churning them out in the first place.

Did you see the article earlier about Google and one Ms. Green and her jigsaw...?    Alas, the 'real-world' that you & I used to think would give a good tune-up to misfiring youth, has become the 'surreal' world.   This is how Bolshevism takes over.

Kill federal funding. Those of us that pay taxes should have our money going to educating our children, not making them into violent idiots.

They're just mad because Trump is threatening their Mexican dope...

A friend of ine from China sent their daughter to one of those religious Scandanavian type schools in Minn and she is transferring out ASAP.

She sepnt the Spring break with my family and said the student there are not only dumb as a bag of hammers, but extreme left-wing raycist. I told her the left usually calls the conservatives raycist and she said her experience in America shows the exact opposite; the left wing Hitlery supports are by far and away more anti-free speech, intolerant and raycist.

Even her parents back in Shanghai were shocked to hear that because that's not what they hear on the American-backed propaganda news blasted across China by the Fake News corporations. But they understand it now, since the daughter gave them an ultimatum; transfer to a truly conservative college or go back to China it's so bad at that "liberal Christian" college."

She's learning first hand what Deplorables knew already.

Women, especially white women need to come under control.  As soon as a family breaks down, women turn to government.  So, cultural marxism is all about breaking down the family.

White women have a special problem by being pathologically altruistic.  This works great to create a high trust civilization, but breaks down when this altruism is extended by fraud, to then cuckhold for outside groups.

After LBJ's great society, black women were funded to have babies.  This then destroyed the black family, and black men became baby daddies, instead of fathers.  Now there are roving gangs of murderous black thugs in the inner cities, and no black fathers around to kick their ass.  It also is a dysgenic cycle, as evolution works its magic, making every subsequent generation dumber and more dependent.

White's are not immune to this dysgenic phenomenon, especially as their women are totally confused by all the propaganda being spewed by university and media bolsheviks.

It recently occurred to me that western womens' preference for careers over children might have something to do with their pathological support for third-world immigration and refugees. 

Women were designed by nature primarily for the task of bearing and nurturing children. Regardless of modern attitudes to work and career, that evolutionary mandate will leave women who don't have children with a feeling of inner emptiness at some level. Childbearing rates among western women are currently at their lowest peacetime levels in known history. 

In the west, third-world minorities, migrants, etc., are frequently viewed as children without personal agency or the ability to care for themselves. They are putatively noble savages with good intentions who want all the same things we do, but their inability to cope with our advanced society, aggravated by the ever-present racism of whites, holds them at a low level of socioeconomic development and forces them to act out in frustration by committing violent crime and rioting. 

These poor misguided children, never responsible for their own behavior, must be taken into the warm female breast and nurtured until they are ready to stand on their own feet and enter the world as fully functional adults.

NoDebt's picture

That's what (the modern post-LBJ definition of) liberalism is all about.  Using people's best altruistic intentions to destroy things of worth like families, economies, whole societies and place government in a position of primacy of all power.  As I'm sure you well know, LBJ didn't put the "Great Society" in motion out of compassion for the masses.  It did exactly what it was supposed to do- fracture black society and offset their then recent gains in voting rights.  Later on politicians realized it works on all races.

Except orientals.  Those fuckers just won't knuckle under and accept the government teat like they're supposed to.

Racist white women who hold the savages to their breast?  It is a contradiction.  I expect you are being sarcastic with the "noble savage" comment.  It could be they are just savages, and lost out on tens of thousands of years of evolution?

Whites are the least racist group and have to be taught by experience.  Whites are easy to program with a "don't believe your lying eyes" type message.  Anti-Semitism is a learned response as well.  

It follows that white invented and built civilizations are the best fit for white people.  African blacks build a unique civilization to their genetic history.  For example, the institution of single man single woman marriage under law, is not part of the African ethos.  They use a village to raise children, and tribal elders for law.

 Semite cultures are low trust and tribal.  Their religion reflects this and condones violence.  Semite peoples will not accept somebody outside of their in-group for baby-sitting, etc.

Immigrating disparate people, just to take wage arbitrage, is a disaster. Any politician or groups shilling for this need to have their head examined.

Finance capitalism needs to be thrown on the ash heap of history.

Fucking bullshit, as a woman and with gf that prefer career over family, it is known fact that women are held in higher regard and given the same respect when they have a career and bring home the money rather than being see at home as useless housewives by men like you. And often times the same men that wants women to stay at home also thinks they are lazy and men's job outside is fucking more important than women. Of course we women got smarter says fuck you men, now you can go and beg a gay dude to be your wife but smart women would prefer to get a sperm bank baby rather than being a wife to jackass that demands everything from women along with thinking their job outside the home is fucking more important than wifey house work.

Women shouldn't put up with any misogynistic bull shits from men, if you don't like the way modern society goes, then you shouldn't have fucking look down at women who has job at home aka no-pay, no-respect job.

Of course even if women decide to stay at home for the children, if they ever ask for money from the working men or got divorce with men paying for child support, I bet you men would be the first in line to cry gold digger at the women whose asking for support to raise your brats.

It's no win for women in traditional roles, it's better off all women stay single and use a sperm bank if they wants a kid or find a feminist men that will treat women equality and raise their kids equality. Who cares about freaking population decline except for misogynistic assholes.

Being a mother is the most important job in the world! How would you feel if your mom went to a sperm bank and focused on her career more than you?

Can't take other side of comment? I only say women always lose doesn't matter what she choices. Majorly of guys here are misogynistic jackass who likes to think they are superior to anyone else. These men should just marry other men. Lol.

I am not inclined to hold out hope for white women.  They are constantly bombarded by metropolitan (sissy) white men, whom they reject, but continually shape men the way they are. The want sensitive men who understand them and cry alot. They disparage manly white men and show they are not racist by hooking up with "black baby daddies."  They are rewarded by the social media and MSM with images of white women with black men.  Just look at the amount of TV programs that make white men look like buffoons.  To prove my point, when was the last time you saw a black woman with a white man?  How about Rachael Dolenz?

So who or what is at fault? 

The current societal war is against white men and excludes white women.  White women actually join the anti-white man crusade.  White men better man up soon, or they will go by the wayside like the Dodo bird.  

So, am I racist because I point out my perceptions and observations?  I don't see myself that way, but I am very sure others do because I do not tow the line.  A war is upon us and most don't even know it.

Welcome to reality.  

It is bad ju ju to walk around with conflicting ideas rattling around in you noggin.  It will make you a zombie.

Those people who can hold conflicting ideas in their head simultaneously are lying to themselves.  TO THYSELF BE TRUE.

The plain fact is that not all people are the same.  Racial groups are not the same.  The sexes are not the same.

This is so obvious it should not have to be stated.  But, in our Orwellian world, speaking the truth is a thought crime.

It is ok to be a racist.  All racial groups have their own interests.  White people, who suffer from Altruism, have a very large Guilty button that the other races, especially Jews, like to push.  Tell them to sod off.  Be a man, stand up.  

This altruism is probably an evolutionary adaptation from the fourth ice ages.

Why don't you get a fucking life or go back to your MGTOW site.

You're just as bad as the feminists because you think everyone from a certain group is the same. Guys like you and all the feminists (you're both different sides of the same coin) would just GO AWAY.
