Snowflakes Demand University President's Resignation After Refusal To Support "Safe Spaces"

Tyler Durden's picture

Snowflakes at the ultra-liberal Northern Arizona University are demanding that their President, Rita Cheng, step down today after a student asked for her opinion on 'safe spaces' and got a rather shocking dose of reality as a reply. 

During a forum hosted by Cheng, NAU sophomore Breanna Kramer asked the following (per KPNX):

“How can you promote safe spaces, if you don’t take action in situations of injustice, such as, last week, when we had the preacher on campus and he was promoting hate speech against marginalized students?  As well as, not speaking out against racist incidents like blackface two months ago by student workers followed by no reform and no repercussions?”

And while Kramer expected a softball response from her school's president, what she actually got was a heaping dose of 'real life'...which, of course, immediately 'triggered' every snowflake within an earshot of the president's 'microaggression'.

“As a university professor, I’m not sure I have any support at all for safe space.  I think that you as a student have to develop the skills to be successful in this world and that we need to provide you with the opportunity for discourse and debate and dialogue and academic inquiry, and I’m not sure that that is correlated with the notion of safe space as I’ve seen that.”

In the aftermath of the atrocity, NAU students took to Facebook to do what all snowflakes do when their bastions of liberalism refuse to bend to their every demand...namely, organize a protest...

NAU

 

Meanwhile, the mass-triggering event caused local news agencies to spring into action with a series of accusatory questions...

Q: What does President Cheng think about the NAU SAC asking for her resignation if she doesn’t provide a safe space for all students?

 

A: NAU is safe. Creating segregated spaces for different groups on our campus only [leads] to misunderstanding, distrust and [reduces] the opportunity for discussion and engagement and education around diversity. Our classrooms and our campus is a place for engagement and respect – a place to learn from each other.  NAU is committed to an atmosphere that is conducive to teaching and learning.

 

Q: Does she only bring up diversity and equality on campus when it opens up the school for grant and fund eligibility?

 

A: President Cheng has been addressing diversity and equality in her words and her actions since the day she arrived at NAU. Her leadership in advocating for our students and their success is reflected in the fact that our enrollment mirrors the diversity of our State.

 

Q: Is she willing to sit down with NAU SAC representatives (if she hasn’t already) to hear their concerns and see what she can do to address them?

 

A: Yes. The President is and has always been willing to meet with representatives of student groups. There were hundreds of people at Wednesday’s forum – faculty staff and students.  The few dozen who left, missed the opportunity to hear the questions of others, including several similar to theirs, and the answers that followed.

We'll set the over/under at 1 week for Cheng's remaining tenure at NAU....

You know I think safe spaces are a massively fucking retarded idea. But the original safe space where opposing ideas weren't allowed and the echo box was deafening were churches. And in a lot of places they still are.

Do churches charge $25-100K a year and fill your head full of mush like gayfag studies?

If I was Ms. Cheng, I would hire a bunch of Pinkertons to pound some common sense into the snowflakes.

But then again, Ms. Cheng and the snowflakes probably have no clue about the historic role and utility of the Pinkertons.

As a person whom has had the campus cops called on me for admiting I voted for Trump, I find this amusing.

I want myself a safe space like that.

Damn, that's dope.

Ivy League School Permits ONLY Minority and Gay Students into These Rooms

 

Dyler_Turden's picture
Recently vacated space at Columbia University will now be available exclusively to students of color and those who identify as LGBT.

The Columbia College Student Council and Engineering Student Council unanimously passed a proposal in January to designate what was the undergraduate package center, where students went to accept incoming packages inside the Lerner Hall Student Center, as a space where  minority students can go, according to the Columbia Spectator.

The proposal called for “more institutional support, staff, resources, funding, and space for LGBTQ+ students, students of color, and those who hold combinations of these identities,” according to Campus Reform. Specifically, the proposal called for the school to hire a staffer whose sole duty was to cater to lesbian,  gay, bisexual and transgender students.

The Columbia University Senate Student Affairs Committee officially unveiled the rooms Friday.

“In this particular case, initiative really took advantage of a really fantastic opportunity to meet the needs of a community that is at a higher risk for mental health and wellness issues than their peers,” the committee’s co-chair, Sean Ryan, said.

One unidentified freshman said, “There are many spaces on campus, especially those that are dominated by straight males, that leave me tense. An LGBTQ+ Center would offer me yet another space where I could feel like I am safe to simply exist and be me.”

Another unidentified student claimed that while Columbia “boasts” about having a diverse student body, those students who actually make the school diverse “are not properly cared for,” Campus Reform reported. Although the university does not have a staff member whose sole job is to work with LGBT students, the Spectator reported that associate director of multicultural affairs Chris Woods, who was also tasked with serving Latino and Muslim students, catered to LGBT students.

America's future is fucking clownshoes

Rebel yell's picture

So the liberal elite's answer to cultural differences is segregation. That is hauntingly familiar.

Honestly, I can imagine how sobering and traumatizing this period may be for blacks, who waited for so long to have a black president. It was Obama's ultimate betrayal not only to all of America but to the black community in particular who placed their faith and pride in him and believed his lies. The extent of Obama's lies is earth shattering and I can honestly see how those who proudly voted not once, but twice for the Nobel Peace Prize winning war monger of all times would feel immense anguish over this.

My advice to the black community is don't take it personally. Obama is a corrupt, greedy, asshole who exploited your dreams. White people don't take it personally every time a white president fails and you shouldn't waste anymore time over Obama.

''Threatened our lively hood''.

Maybe teach some spelling in the safe spaces?

Or maybe instead of referring to the means by which they make a living, she was referring to riots, robberies murders and sirens in the local ghetto

Maybe instead of worrying about safe spaces and protesting against the president of the university, these snowflakes should be studying.  Looks like they're failing English 101 or at least would have where I got my degree.  Anyone who is even accepted to college should have better grammar skills than shown in this post for action.  Shameful!

1) cut the scholarships to only work-study programs so the students have no time to act this stupid;

2) admissions should be based on MERIT and ACHIEVEMENT, not race or gender;

3) scholarships should be based on [verifiable] economic need, not race or gender.;

4) remove all those silly boxes that demand to know if you are a cracka (who will get zero scholarship money), a Han Chinese (who will be rejected unless they score 40% higher then the dindus) or an Obama product of some sort (who will get 100% preference in everything from admission to scholarships and a Trophy at the end plus a cushy AA job).

Lets get back to a meritocracy and make our society color-blind like the NAACP has demanded for years. Remove those boxes!

You might want to study Psalm 22 and John 8:32, which , ironically is still inscribed on the University of Texas main building.
I guess the snowflakes there are so ignorant of the Bible that they don't protest it as institutional hate speech.

They sure aren't teaching students how to write. Look at that Twitter feed.  Call that university-level English? 

A free society is one where people are able to criticize freely and communicate complex ideas clearly.

Seriously.  Who the fuck is educating them?  How the hell can you use past and past perfect in the same damn sentence and expect to produce anything that is remotely coherent?  And then there's the glaring "that's have..."

What a damn clown parade colleges have become--I think I should cash in all our 529s and spare my daughter future indoctrination.

They're bigger than snowflakes, they're walking grape popcicles with brain freeze. We haven't even touched on the hypocricy of their statement as well

See, you have to listen to them but they won't tolerate your opinion if it offends them. Wow, fair no?

These "students" can't make a livelihood teaching English.

Mareka's picture

Michael Savage has summed it up perfectly.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.

People on the Left want power.
It’s not about safe spaces or equality or diversity or fairness.
It is about forcing everyone else to comply with whatever notion pops into their heads.

The more outlandish the demand, the more in control they feel when they get compliance.

The demand is always accompanied by a threat.

They want to end the college president’s career as compensation for a perceived insult from some 3rd party.

Which is the more outrageous aggression?

Do churches charge $25-100K a year and fill your head full of mush like gayfag studies?

Or for that matter, are you required to attend to hold a significant position in most companies, or the government? If anything it counts against you now.

Skateboarder's picture

Once upon a time you did, yes, but a real godful man don't need to attend no chruch/temple anyhow. Culturally it has been engrained in human cultures that you go praise the god at the temple and have god representatives bless your shit in ceremonial proceedings. The godful just sit through the temple/ceremony stuff as necessary overhead.

Godless 'leaders' of today (or perhaps since forever) must put up the pretense of being good temple-attending creatures as to not rock the boat of breaking age-old customs and practices of people in those positions. In an age soon to come, the gods will be shunned; not sure if I will be one to see that in my time.

Bathory - Twilight of the Gods

"There is a serpent in every Eden
Slick as grease and cold as ice
There is a lie in every meaning
Rest assured to fool you twice

In this age of utter madness
We maintain we are in control
And ending life before deliverance
While countries are both bought and sold

Holy writtings hokus-pokus
Blaze of glory and crucifix
Prepried costly credit salvations
TV-preachers and dirty tricks

Don't trust nobody
It will cost you much too much
Beware of the dagger
It caress you at first touch
O, all small creatures
It is the twilight if the gods

When the foundations to our existence
Begins to crumble one by one
And legislations protects its breakers
And he who was wrong but paid the most won

Even the gods of countless religions
Holds no powers against this tide
Of degeneration because we have now found
That there is no thrones up there in the sky

Run from this fire
It will burn your very soul
Its flames reaching higher
Comed this far there is no hold
O, all small creatures
It is the twilight if the gods"

Indeed, grow up now or later. it matters not to me. Just remember, in real life people are allowed to hate you, just because.

IntTheLight's picture

Church is voluntary which is why I no longer attend. It has become a leftist institution promoting hatred of Western peoples and the conquest of their lands. Their is nothing Christian in promoting the death of white people. Suicide was once a mortal sin but the Pope seems to be encouraging it. If suicide a mortal sin, what kind of sin is it when you actively promote the death of a people.

Perhaps that is because if your ideas are contrary to the Gospel of Jesus Christ they don't really need a forum for announcement in his house?

The grammar of snowflakes is shocking. Extensive and incorrect use of apostrophes and when does she take a break within a sentence? Way too much use of 'and', not to mention she's using Facebook just to reinforce the triple whammy of stupidity and poor education.

Yours, snowflake melting teacher.

hardmedicine's picture

amen to that

 

The snowflakes cannot make a cogent sentence and well thought out argument.  Mostly they are stringing together phrases gleened from their socialist teachers and media to appear that they are part of the liberal special status order. 

 

I am so tired of the racist moniker.  I voted for Barack Obama in 2008, God help me!, but I take extreme exception with anyone who wants to contend that the USA is more racist today that in the past.  What these students identify as "racism" is truly the society's reaction to their lacking social and communication skills.  If you want respect and honor ; if you want standing in this society you will not get there by demanding it.  You must EARN it.
