DePaul University students, don't fear! There will be no more political "chalking" at your school.
Apparently, someone wrote - with chalk - on a campus sidewalk last week: "Make DePaul Great Again." The message sent students and staff into a tailspin. The xenophobia! The bigotry! The racism!
"While these chalk messages are part of national agendas in a heated political battle, they appeared on campus at a time of significant racial tension in our country and on college campuses. DePaul is no exception," DePaul's vice president for student affairs Eugene Zdziarski wrote in a campus-wide email obtained by Campus Reform. "The university has been addressing campus climate issues in an effort to provide an inclusive and supportive educational environment. In this context, many students, faculty and staff found the chalk messages offensive, hurtful and divisive."
Mr. Zdziarski cited the school's nonprofit status, which prohibits students from engaging in political activities that could be reflected as the university's "views or opinions."
So no more political chalking allowed.

You bad old Trumpsters need to stop your xenophobic and bigoted political chalking ... because it destroys their nice inclusive and supportive educational environment!
Chalk on a sidewalk...
Finally, something the university won’t allow.
Hmmm, is that progress?
Do you get expelled on the first offense? Which offense is deemed a fatal offense if you wished to remain on campus, taking your courses?
Soap stone? Spray paint? Dial soap? Ungrateful snot wusses.
The 1st Amendment via chalk is offensive?
# DuPaul U. and protest in chalk.
Free speech ... what’s that?
I think if I saw some chalk writing on a sidewalk I would have the vapors.
Seems to me that chalk is harmless. First shower and it’s gone.
If this was for Hillary or Bernie, there wouldn’t be a peep about it.
Brave stand on the War on Chalk.
I know. They should have cots every ten meters around campus.
This could cause fatalities.
Imagine, thinking DePaul could be great again...
Well there you go, now the Trump supporters are responsible for the cancellation of the long planned Hopscotch Tournament.
I liked “Blue Lives Matter,” referencing their mascot (the Blue Demons).
“Offensive and hurtful?” Only in millennial cupcake America.
Writing on the wall,
Everybody knows it,
I dis Paul!
De Paul, De Paul, curled in a ball!
De Paul, De Paul, hear the squall!
I honestly never thought I’d see such nonsense at our universities.
My mind doesn’t even function like this.
Chalk gives people the vapors?
Good freakin grief!
I know, it’s too alien a mindset for older generations like ours fathom. Those kids will be in for the shock of their lives when entering the real world, frantically searching in vain for their ever-elusive “safe spaces.”
Hitler and Stalin and Mao are all smiling from hell with all this PC!!
