TRIGGERED: California College Calls Police Over Cartoon ‘Pepe’ Frog Poster
Folsom Lake College in California called the local police department over a cartoon frog, according to a new report by Campus Reform.
School leaders then blasted an email out to students declaring that, “hate has no home on our campus.”
Or the First Amendment, apparently.
The social justice snowflakes at Folsom Lake College are so used to “reporting” posts they don’t like on Facebook and Twitter only to have the social media companies bow to their requests, that they didn’t know what to do when they saw a Pepe frog poster in real life.
Students couldn’t report the cartoon frog to their Fascist tech giant overlords, so they called the police, naturally.
Via Campus Reform:
An FLC faculty member found the sheet featuring Pepe the frog on their office door earlier in February. The school informed the Los Rios, California Police Department about the incident so it would “be on heightened alert for any signs that this may be part of a larger trend or pattern,” according to an email sent to the school community and obtained by Campus Reform.
“[Pepe] has been commonly co-opted by white supremacists and others as a symbol of bigotry,” Yamamura and the co-authors said in the email. “While we do not immediately know the intentions of the person(s) who posted the picture, we are treating this incident with the highest level of seriousness and have already conducted a sweep of all Folsom Lake College campuses to look for other instances of these materials.”
College campuses are Socialist/Communist indoctrination centers that give students ‘safe spaces’ from reality.
If these so-called adult students in college can’t handle a cartoon frog on a poster, they will never be able to make it in the real world.
People, especially young adults, spend countless hours a day on social media so they actually believe that whatever Twitter and Facebook deem as “hate speech” or “hateful conduct” translates into the real world.
There is no “hate speech” exception to the First Amendment which the US Supreme Court again confirmed in 2017 — These liberal snowflakes should do themselves a favor and read the US Constitution.
