DISGUSTING Snowflakes Force Relocation of 9/11 Memorial Display Due to ‘Triggering, Harmful’ Messages
A 9/11 memorial that occupied a central location on the campus of Southern Methodist University (SMU) for YEARS is being relocated to a secluded area of campus due to liberal outrage over the “triggering” message it sends . . .
This isn’t fiction.
Members of the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapter at SMU filed paperwork recently for their yearly display of flags to honor the memory of 9/11 victims, but campus administrators DENIED their request so that they could, “respect the right of all members of the community to avoid messages that are triggering, harmful, or harassing.”
SMU’s YAF chapter participates, like countless others, in the annual 9/11 Never Forget Project by putting together a memorial of 2,977 American flags, which each represent a life lost during the attacks.
The cowardly SMU administrators, afraid of triggering SOME Muslims that are incapable of understanding the damage done by their religion, are asking that the memorial be moved from “well-trafficked” Dallas Hall Lawn, which is a prominent location on campus, according to Campus Reform.

The email explained that a memorial lawn display “is any type of visual recognition or commemoration of an event or political or social issue,” noting that examples “include, but are not limited to: crosses, flags, etc.”
The email also declared that SMU “respects the right of all members of the community to avoid messages that are triggering, harmful, or harassing.”
Instead, the display location was changed to MoMac Park, which is to the south of Dallas Hall Lawn and less prominent. According to Drew Wicker, the president of the SMU College Republicans, MoMac Park sees significantly less foot traffic than Dallas Hall Lawn.
“The administration’s changing of locations to MoMac Park is solely intended to reduce foot traffic for any display our organizations put up. Less foot traffic means less complaints from students, faculty and local residents who are ‘triggered’ and ‘offended’ by the displays,” Drew Wicker, president of the SMU College Republicans, told Campus Reform. “This is the administration choosing to do the easy thing instead of making the hard choice and doing the right thing for the university and its students.”
SMU spokesperson Kent Best, however, told Campus Reform that he doesn’t see the change in lawn space from Dallas Hall to MoMac as a downgrade.
“This is a change in location for all approved displays regardless of sponsoring organization or display subject,” he said. “This request for a display was approved, as it has been in previous years. MoMac Park is located near the center of campus along SMU Boulevard, the most prominent drive into our campus.”
