Free speech is under attack at Tulane University where the Kappa Alpha fraternity is in hot water for building a sandbag wall in front of their house – on their own property – that said, “Make America Great Again.” Because the phrase is associate with Republican front runner and current Leftist bogeyman Donald Trump, KA is under siege. They are taking flack from University officials and the usual assortment of campus Leftists, who probably wouldn’t like the phrase even if Donald Trump had never uttered it.
In addition, a group of men alleged to be Tulane football players came onto their property and tore down the wall. The Daily Mail explains, “In a video posted to YouTube, individuals can be seen grabbing the sandbags and tossing them into the street while fraternity members look on, one saying ‘this is private property.'”
The police did nothing to stop them.
The Daily Mail went on:
In an effort to support the individuals who dismantled the fraternity’s ‘Trump wall’, Tulane’s Latino student advocacy group, Generating Excellence Now and Tomorrow in Education (GENTE), set up a Change.org petition against the university’s administration.
‘We the undersigned stand in solidarity with the individuals who took the brave action of dismantling the wall in front of Kappa Alpha Fraternity House,’ a statement on the petition read.
‘This wall, although a tradition carried on by Kappa Alpha for many years, has been a source of aggression towards students of colour on this campus, and this year, with the addition of the labels “Trump” and “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN,” has become overtly threatening towards Muslim and Latino students.’
The wall was “a source of aggression.” Because walls are aggressive? Moving around and threatening like they do? But the guys who went on to KA’s private property and tore down the wall – the guys who actually destroyed someone else’s property? That’s ok. Welcome to the American university.
