Greek Week events cancelled after members painted pro-Trump messages on free speech wall


“The phrase is offensive and hurtful to many individuals as it is directly tied to the Hispanic/Latino/a community, makes them feel marginalized, and the message was interpreted that they do not belong at Ohio University,” the letter stated.

The names of the students involved in the incident, though, were excluded from the letter as it “is not at the center of this controversy.” The students will not face any disciplinary actions, the letters states, because their actions were within the bounds of free speech.

    It sure is swell that they give them a tiny wall to exercise their constitutional amendments, and then are punished for expressing incorrect thoughts.
    They had no problems “marginalizing” white nationalists, who with every passing day are turning out to have been more and more “on the right side of history”.

    • And of course they’re assuming that the entire “Hispanic/Latino community” would never vote Trump and are offended by Trump. They seem to assume that every Hispanic going to University in Ohio is an illegal alien.

      Not to mention that “Hispanic/Latino” is a pretty broad stroke: It would not only include those of Mexican heritage, but anyone with roots in any of the Central and South American nations (about 20 countries, not including the Latin-American islands of the Caribbean), and also those from the Latino countries of Southern Europe and the Mediterranean: Spain, Italy, France and Portugal.

      Does the University honestly believe that it speaks for the entire Hispanic and Latino community in its midst?

        Latino’s will not vote for a lesbian..they are a “macho” culture
        Latino’s want a strong successful leader.. lots of babes around only helps

        • I think you’ve found something that is homogeneous!

          • mauser 98

            Latino’s have not been pooftafied like the Euro’s have

          • Certainly not like Northern Europeans. Even rather poofty places such as France are still essentially latino — a couple years ago they had possibly the largest demonstrations in the world against Gay marriage there. I think there were something like one million protestors in the street.

            i should have said Euro’s and North Americans
            we are F%#@D

            The French speak a Latinate language called French. The Italians speak another Latinate language called Italian. You are mistaking Latinate languages with “Latino” which is an American construct.

          • Except that’s what “Latino” means — it refers to a language group, not ethnicity. “Hispanic” refers to a specific sub-set of that language group — people who speak Spanish. Which wouldn’t include Brazilians or the Portuguese, much less Italians and French. “Latino” literally means “Latin” — it’s a broader term. The southern European Latin nations were the most significant colonists in the southern hemisphere of the New World — there’s a direct connection linguistically and culturally. Although ethnically it’s mixed because of centuries of intermarriage.

        I think you are being a tad broad stroke yourself. Latinate European cultures have NOTHING zoo do with “Latino” anything, including the Spanish who are not “Hispanic” but “Spanish”. Further, all western European Latinate peoples are caucasian white and consider themselves as such. Continental Spanish would cringe at being considered non-white.

        All this “Hispanic/Latino” shit comes right out of America. The “La Raza” crap is exclusive to this continent.

        • The majority of Latin Americans are mixed-raced or “mestizo” — part Caucasian, part Aboriginal. But some Latin Americans are pure Caucasian just as some are pure Aboriginal. Latin Americans are not a race, they are New World ethnicity with the majority being an ad-mixture. There’s no such thing as a “Brown race”. La Raza is full of crap.

    dirty secret.. minorities don’t want illegals either

    The un-Borders people should also be declared un-Citizens, and encouraged to find a new home.

  • “Paramedics were called to the scene of Trump graffiti on campus to find hundreds of traumatized snowflakes melting in the hot sun, some complaining of blindness after gazing upon the main word drawn in chalk, many wondering how they will ever be the same again.”
    I think this could almost be the same headline for each case.

      Imagine any of them fighting for their country.

      • They’d make the French Army look unbeatable.

        • Justin St.Denis

          The French Armed Forces are small but very well trained and effective. You meant to mock the notorious Italian armed forces, I’m certain.

          • I do say that in jest, but I did make some friends from 5e Commando, all of us amateur military historians and they would offer harsh critiques of past French military performances. I would discuss Canadian military mistakes…ah, We used to have some great discussions over our 2 beer per day limits.
