Poor Little Snowflakes. ‘Anxious and fearful’ students demand day off to cry about Trump

College students at several schools have started petitions urging their universities and professors to cancel classes in the wake of Donald Trump’s electoral victory, citing “emotional distress.”

Petitions have sprung up at Loyola University, Bryn Mawr University, and Johns Hopkins University, but so far none of the schools have acceded to the demands.

College students at several schools have started petitions urging their universities and professors to cancel classes in the wake of Donald Trump’s electoral victory, citing “emotional distress.”

A petition to cancel classes at Loyola University has 298 supporters, over halfway to its goal of 500 signatories, though some signatures appear to have been revoked Wednesday.

“Loyola students are exhausted and exasperated from this election and no one wants to go to class,” the petition explains. “The only cure to an election hangover is drinking a cold beer in bed…all day.”

On top of the alleged exhaustion, comments from several signers cite mental health as an additional reason to cancel classes, with one student declaring, “some people are literally scared for their lives.”

“i don’t think i can emotionally handle classes tomorrow with what I’m seeing,” another signee wrote.

“Last night I cried until I vomited,” a Loyola student claimed. “I don’t even remember falling asleep, but I must have passed out from hyperventilation. I woke up with my eyes nearly swolen [sic] shut. My body is sore. My mind is numb.”

Students at Bryn Mawr College started a similar petition that currently has 348 signatures, urging college president Cassidy to cancel classes so that students may “mourn” Trump’s victory.

“We need a day to heal after we’ve been told the country doesn’t value our existence at all,” whined one student.

Signers of both the Loyola and the Bryn Mawr petitions suggested that a Trump presidency also threatens their physical well-being, alleging safety concerns for minority groups on campus.

“A Trump election directly endangers the lives of all students at Bryn Mawr College that are people of color, lgbtqa+, non-Christian, and female,” a signee of the Bryn Mawr petition claimed. “If Trump wins, it’s not only a question of self care but personal safety.”

Another concurred, saying, “I am deeply afraid for myself, for my friends, for my family, for students I’ve never talked to on campus.”

A third petition, signed by 155 people and addressed to Johns Hopkins University president Ron Daniels, maintains that students need time off from class in order to confront “emotional distress,” explaining that they are “anxious and fearful for the future” due to Trump’s election, which they add “will not be easy for a lot of people and families.”

“The future is at stake and we’re stuck with the very scary possibility Donald Trump will be president,” the petition states. “So all in favor of asking President Daniels for a day off tomorrow let your voice be heard because unfortunately it’s not being heard in this election.”

At press time, none of the campuses in question had opted to cancel classes in response to the students’ pleas.

  1. Sounds to me like they’re all undergraduates at “Eloi University”….

    (… a reference to the lazy, worthless humans of the future in the film “The Time Machine”…..)

  2. Oh I need a “safe place” to get away from the whiners. It is the fault partially of the usurper in the presidency the last 8 years that universities have failed to do the job of teaching truth. With all the learning about which sex to be and all the confusion sown on campuses, these wooses are an embarrassment. Do like Israel and send all 18-yr-olds into the army, then maybe they’ll grow up. A little hard discipline in boot camp and a year of cleaning toilets might give them a new perspective. Good grief.

  3. Ah, so sad. The universities/colleges that riot, do not hire or fire conservative instructors, discriminate against Jews, Christians, and whites, disallow or interrupt free speech need their Federal funding removed. And it’s a given that the so-call Department of Education, the breeding-ground for Saul Alinski initiates, needs to be closed. Then this current generation of punks, thugs, and inciters can become the “new” Lost Generation, an anachronism.

    • Ahh Allen, if it could only be so… But don’t hold your breath


    • It must be done. If the vermin are not exposed, flushed out, and removed, America cleansed and renewed, this election was for naught, the festering subculture will remain, intent upon their design–our demise. A wall, employment, a conservative-leaning SCOTUS, etc. are all important concerns; but until progressivism is made an “anachronism,” freedom will remain in jeopardy. This is not, nor ever is the time, to rest upon our election laurels. Our fight has just begun; the adversary is stunned, not defeated.

  4. I have watched a few videos today of black ferral thugs dragging white people out of cars and beating them saying something “Trump”
    I really now want to get in my car and run over many many people.
    Can you blame me.
    I want to start a petition to do that. Will anyone sign that?
    Thank you for your consideration of my mental health. 🙂

    All educational institutions in America must be cleansed of indoctrination
    and put back to the real work of education, learning how to think and
    act. True American and World History taught by non communist creeps,
    Civics made mandatory along with Ethics, revisionist trash purged and
    anti-American subversives sent to Cuba…………………..William
