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 St. Olaf College, a Lutheran liberal arts school, voted for the Clinton/Kaine ticket in 2016, while Trump/Pence drew 1 in 10 and Johnson/Weld 1 in 20.
- But another St. Olaf conservative warns his peers not to act 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. Another student said his professor’s anti-Trump animus makes him keep quiet so she won’t “possibly bring down my grade.””
