DePaul University Bans Chalk Because It Can Be Used To Spell ‘Trump’

In case I haven’t made myself clear, I do not like Donald Trump and I’m never, ever going to vote for him. His nomination will destroy the Republican Party, if he hasn’t done so already (to which I say: my condolences and/or good riddance). He will ensure what Barack Obama couldn’t: 40 years of Democratic Party rule.

Yet, as loathsome as I find Trump and his lickspittle apologists, I can’t help but laugh at the college students who run for their safe spaces at the mere sight of the man’s name. With the latest on this hilarious trend, here’s Anthony Gockowski at Campus Reform:

DePaul University will no longer allow students to chalk political messages on the sidewalks of its campus because of the “offensive, hurtful, and divisive” nature of pro-Trump chalking found on campus last week.

“While these chalk messages are part of national agendas in a heated political battle, they appeared on campus at a time of significant racial tension in our country and on college campuses. DePaul is no exception,” Depaul’s vice president for student affairs Eugene Zdziarski wrote in a campus-wide email obtained by Campus Reform…

Campus Reform reached out to DePaul to ask why university officials chose to respond to this particular chalking instance despite claims that chalking “regularly” occurs on campus. No response was received in time for publication.

That one’s easy:

  1. Even though Trump is a lifelong liberal, he’s running for president as a Republican. That’s because he knows he could never get the Democratic nomination, even against a candidate as awful as Hillary Clinton.
  2. Republicans are bad.
  3. Therefore, chalking Trump’s name on a sidewalk is worse than chalking any other word on the sidewalk.

It’s called logic, people.

As punishment for this crime, DePaul should make the culprit write “I will not chalk Trump’s name on the sidewalk” on the blackboard 100 times. Oh wait, they can’t. Nothing to write with! How about… death by stoning? That’s how other cultures deal with blasphemers in 2016.
