Socialist College Students Plan Walkout On Inauguration Day For Some Reason

Font Size:

Back when I was a youngster in college, we found our own ways to have good wholesome fun. Stuff like swallowing goldfish and stuffing ourselves into phone booths and carving up hobos. But that was then. Young folks these days have come up with a new way to waste everybody’s time: whining about Trump!

Nathan Rubbelke, College Fix:

A student socialist group has organized a nationwide walkout on Friday to protest the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, fearing the new president and his party will “unleash a storm of attacks” on various segments of the American population.

The National Student Walkout Against Bigotry & Hate is organized by Socialist Students, a campus arm of Socialist Alternative…

Campus walkouts are planned at the University of California Santa Barbara, University of California Los Angeles, Ohio State University and University of Minnesota, among others. Events are also planned in cities such as New York, Chicago and Philadelphia.

Well, that’ll show ‘im. Wait till he hears about this: “What did you just say? They walked out of class??? Oh no. I can’t do this. That’s it, I resign.”

I’d ask how this is supposed to work, how students disrupting everybody’s education and wasting their parents’ money is going to stop Trump, but let’s face it: These kids aren’t really getting an education. That won’t happen until they go out into the world and discover that it’s not a safe space. That’s when the learning will begin.

Okay, so maybe that didn’t happen for Bernie Sanders. But it can.
