Snowflake killer.

Conservative students at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville were recently confronted by campus police, who told them that their free speech ball was “scaring” other students.

      I loved The Prisoner. Saw a couple years ago they revamped the series. I refused to watch it there will never be another Patrick McGoohan.

    “The demonstrators didn’t follow the proper University procedure for a public forum by going through the Vice Chancellor of Administration’s Office for approval”

    There, you see! There is free speech at SIU. You can say or do anything you want, so long as it’s approved by administrators beforehand.

  • I believe that fear was genuine, as is their fear of their own shadows and moths.

      And it’s due to profound ignorance, severely misguided education and off the charts mollycoddling. These are not functional human beings.

      They are feigning panic in order to silence those they disagree with.

      • I don’t think that they are feigning panic. I believe they truly feel it. After all, insecure people tend to feel threatened by anything.

          They are intimidated by anybody with balls!

        Some of them are probably using “fake offense” and university regulations as weapons to stiffle the sharing of opinions thet do not agree with but I’m sure a certain percentage really buy this “safe space / words are violence” rhetoric. Remember, this is the no scorekeeping, participation trophy soccer leagues, raised by collectivist female daycare workers, never told no by their parents who want to be their friends rather than parents that set boundaries generation.

    People with balls usually frighten people without balls.

    This has got to be made up, surely….

    If this is true, these students belong in kindergarten.

    Passive aggressiveness to the nth degree. Leftists have perfected it and weaponized it. Just pretend you’re afraid of whatever offends you, run to the nearest authority figure, and just like that, the offending thing/person is dealt with for you. They keep doing it because it works.

    So a colorful beach ball is an effective snowflake deflector??

    I learn so much on this blog.
