Emory Students Shaken to Their Roots by the Sound of a Falling Leaf

  You have probably seen this by now.  The snowflake students at Emory have been traumatized by seeing Trump’s name chalked on campus:
  “I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe [here],” one student said. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well … I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school.”  The Emory president immediately responded by assigning more therapists for them.

Drudge posted a poll that this generation is turning its back on God.  Then later he posted a poll saying this is the most anxious generation in our history. 

As readers know, I make sense out of things by studying the Bible.  Reading the two polls in Drudge and the latest on the snowflakes, a Scripture immediately comes to mind. 

Following is an expanded paraphrase of Leviticus 26:36 of a time when Israel was turning its back on Yahweh.  Yahweh declared He would put anxiety in their hearts: “The sound of a wind-driven leaf will put them to flight, and they will flee as one flees from a sword, and fall though no one is pursuing them.”

Can you imagine this generation living through years of attacks by ISIS?  Do you remember when Communism was a threat and people were saying to give in? “Better Red than dead.”

It's like Voldemort in Harry Potter.

Maybe Trump's name is to lefties like garlic is to vampires or soap is to hippies.

In case you don't have time to read the linked article, the author concludes with"I used to think these students are going to have a hard time when they collide with the real world after graduation. But now I’m starting to think that they’ll eventually constitute the real world, at least in the US and UK. And if they do, then it truly will be an unsafe space."

Irrational and unsuitable for real world application. We will pay the price for lack of public morality and virtue. When time proven traditions built through dozens of hard fought generations are eschewed in one generation out of convenience and laziness, this is what you get. The students at ASU are exactly like the ones at Emory. Did anyone see the guest speakers at ASU this month featured in local rags? Pure political correctness designed to indoctrinate and brainwash.

If it had been Sieg Heil, 666, or Helter Skelter written in chalk they would have walked right past it without a thought. But Donald Trump, ooh that gives them nightmares. This is the state of education (if you can call it that) today. Somebody, please, give me a break.

The college students that are afraid of everything; Hollywood isn't helping. Anyone see the movie remake "Point Break"? In watching it last night, I was truly repulsed. The charactgers were all politically correct "Eco-Warriorsk" doing what they do for mother earth. Never thought I'd say it, but I miss Kaneau Reeves!!! The tripe Hollywood (notice lower case) churns out these days is completely politically correct with no reference to God, freedom or American values - the very antithesis of Hollywood through the recent past. When you watch this millennial induced garbage, note the boat the gad guy uses at the end of the movie to catch the big wave. This suicide mission would mean the sure sinking of said boat which would spill diesel oil into the ocean. Like a typical liberal, the characters preach how others should live, yet aren't willing to play by their own rules. Watch this movie if you want a glimpse of pure PROPAGANDA.

The only saving grace is guns were still being used.

Speaking of scared college kid idiots, I wonder if "Doomsday Preppers" scared them too? Perhaps that's why it was taken off television with nary a re-run. The most highly rated show on National Geographic Channel suddenly vanishing without a trace or explanation - seems strange. When it comes to light why it was taken off the air (due to political correctness and "scared" people) the liberals will have some splainin to do. LOL!!!
