WASHINGTON, September 26, 2016 – In the run-up to Monday evening’s first of three scheduled debates between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Hofstra University—which is hosting tonight’s event—has wisely intervened to protect any delicate, easily frightened students unwittingly attending this live, televised political face off. It is entirely possible that Hofstra students may be exposed to a dangerous, free exchange of opinions and ideas.
Lest such students risk years of expensive therapy, a sandwich-board poster has been placed at the entrance to tonight’s on-campus debate venue, informing Hofstra’s legion of Snowflakes and wussies they may encounter forbidden and terrifyingly non-PC alien words, arguments and syllogistic logic, likely originating from Beyond the Wall where Donald Trump and his Dreaded Deplorables do yet dwell.
MRC TV’s Ashley Rae Goldenberg broke this important news in an online report late Monday afternoon:
“Hofstra University has posted a ‘trigger warning’ sign to warn students about the potentially disturbing content that may be discussed during Monday night’s presidential debate.
“According to CBS New York reporter Tony Aiello, a sign inside of the student center at Hofstra reads, ‘Trigger warning: The event conducted just beyond this sign may contain triggering and/or sensitive material. Sexual violence, sexual assault, and abuse are some topics mentioned within this event. If you feel triggered, please know there are resources to help you.’”
If you’ve ever wondered what your kids’ brains are absorbing, courtesy of that second mortgage you took out to fund their “higher education,” well, you have it right here.
As the great Roman orator Cicero once lamented, “O tempora! O mores!”
Rough English translation: “Oh, the times! Oh, the customs! (or morals).”
Better 2016 English: “OMG! How far down the crapper has this country gone!”
