Emory, Bill Maher and me

I so rarely agree with Bill Maher, until recently.  Why all of a sudden does he seem to be one of the two liberals who are not certifiable, the other being Dave Rubin.  Granted, we only seem to agree on the threat of Islam, and this, but it's a start.

From (well everywhere but this specifically from Inquisitr

As the Inquisitr previously reported, pro-Donald Trump chalk messages so frightened and upset the college students that they claimed they were in pain and needed counseling because their safe space had been violated. The Donald Trump Emory University chalk drawings on sidewalks and stairs did not include any foul language, political rhetoric, or crude images. They simply bore the Republican presidential front runner’s name or urged the young adults, “Vote Trump,” and said “Trump 2016.”

Bills Response:
“Let’s talk about the liberal bubble… and I’m always criticizing what goes on on college campuses. There was a doozy this week at Emory University. Oh my gosh. You know what happened at Emory? Somebody wrote pro-Trump messages on the sidewalk in chalk. And, I swear to God, the kids went apesh*t… One student said, ‘I legitimately feared for my life. I thought we were having a KKK rally on campus.’ Here’s another one: ‘I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe, but this man — Trump — is being supported by students on campus.’ As is their right in a democracy. ‘And our administration shows by their silence they support it as well. I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school.’ I so badly want to dropkick these kids into a place where there is actual pain and suffering. What happened in this country?”

Emphasis is mine.  Dropkick away Bill. 

Part of me really wants to just punch the next asshole who points to “Trump2016” written in chalk and calls it violence, right in the nose. “No asshole, that’s violence – see the difference!”
