Skip to comments.Some Liberty University Grads Are Returning Their Diplomas To Protest Trump
Posted on 08/20/2017 4:16:10 AM PDT by Zakeet
A group of alumni from one of the country's most influential evangelical Christian universities is condemning their school's president for his continued alignment with President Trump.
A small but growing number of Liberty University graduates are preparing to return diplomas to their school. The graduates are protesting university President Jerry Falwell Jr.'s ongoing support for Trump. They began organizing after Trump's divisive remarks about the deadly white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Va.
Chris Gaumer, a former Student Government Association president and 2006 graduate, said it was a simple decision.
"I'm sending my diploma back because the president of the United States is defending Nazis and white supremacists," Gaumer said. "And in defending the president's comments, Jerry Falwell, Jr. is making himself and, it seems to me, the university he represents, complicit."

... poor snowflake ... his simple mind made a simple decision ...
I know a better place they can stuff them.
When they apply for jobs, are they going to list their high-school diplomas as their highest educational credential?
It’s amazing the lengths these snowflakes will go to sacrifice for their convictions. / heavy sarcasm.
Stupid is as stupid does.
Sad. Will probably have the effect of John Kerry throwing medals over the fence. He had another set. These people will still use their transcripts for employment, grad school admission, etc.
Yeah, stupid people who figure that a non liberal is evil aND has to die. Tells you how the Nazis came to power.
And by "some", they mean two, and by two, they mean they're talking about doing it. Sort of like Cher moving to Jupiter.
Good, saves the school from the trouble of pulling their diplomas. Idiots. Did they learn nothing???
Yeah well I graduated from a Christian university...
and I wont be giving back my diploma...
Good morning, welcome to your interview. I have reviewed your application and we have noticed that it does not include your college diploma, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha..............................sorry you loose
The 24/7 media hype and social media have combined to create mass political hysteria. Such bubbles expand until they collapse. Once they are over it will be a long time before anything like it reoccurs. The Democrats have shot their wad too early. When it comes time to elect a new president they will find it difficult or impossible to ignite the same level of furor.
Hysteria bubbles, like the housing crisis, do plenty of damage by wrecking lives and dissipating fortunes. Many fewer assets will be available in 2020.
oh remember this is the university that had Willard come and speak...
Looks like a faggot.
Hey schmuck, nobody cares.
What do you mean that you are “preparing” to send your diploma back. Do it or shut up.
This is fake news. One or two guys will bother to send back their diploma. Which means nothing. As someone else said, they will still have it on their resume. Fortunately they can only protest in this way once.
Well the proof is in..... they don’t learn anything!
> the president of the United States is defending Nazis and white supremacists,
Turn off your TV until you learn to think for yourself.
