Conservative students were violently threatened at Lutheran College. A lot of people do not like the President and they threaten people who do not see the world the same way they do. It can be scary to oppose the herd, especially when the heard gives threats out. A lot of people feel threatened by speaking up about what they believe.
- Conservative Students “Violently Threatened” At Lutheran College
- Four in five students at the Lutheran liberal arts school, St. Olaf College, had voted for the 2016 Clinton-Kaine ticket. The Trump-Pence ticket drew 1 in 10 and the Johnson-Weld ticket 1 in 20.
- A conservative student at St. Olaf warns his peers to refrain from acting like “some oppressed minority group” because “it engages in the same identity politics that already make it so hard to have constructive conversations about challenging issues.”
“One political science student said her professor “started every class with basically just ridiculing Trump for about 20 minutes,” and she now plans to transfer to another school next year. A different student claims to keep quiet in response to his professor’s anti-Trump animus so as to prevent any harm to his grade.
