So, at what point do we conclude that there are students going to college at some of this nation’s finest universities who haven’t just been brainwashed by the fringe left, but are actively in need of serious psychological treatment? We tend to throw around words like “lunatic” and “crazy” casually, but this is getting to be a rather dark and disturbing problem. When you have students at the University of Maryland so conditioned to look for “hate” that they call the police to report a piece of trash that vaguely resembles a rope, it’s time to bring in the guy with the prescription pad. These young men and women are not well.
“Out of an abundance of concern, we are looking into this matter and conducting a review of our cameras in the area,” campus police told students in an email. Preliminary investigation reveals that this type of material is used to contain loose items during transport.”
Otherwise known as a plastic bag…
To be fair, the debris was tied into a loose knot, and you could perhaps find a “noose” in there somewhere if you are the type of person who’s good at seeing pictures in the clouds…or racism behind every offhand comment. And it seems there are quite a few of at least one of those types of people attending the University of Maryland.
“Earlier today, we were notified of a knotted piece of plastic wrap laying on the ground in the 7500 block of Baltimore Ave. Police were notified out of concern for possible hate-bias,” the campus police department said in an official report.
The department advised that it was continuing its investigation “out of an abundance of caution.”
The deadpan nature of the report makes you wonder how hard the author was biting the sides of his cheeks to keep from laughing. We’re guessing he’ll be sore for a week.
But let’s just give the students the benefit of the doubt and concede that it IS intended to look like a noose. SO WHAT? What is this “investigation” supposed to accomplish? Suck it up and move on with your day. Why give racists power over you by whining and protesting and writing letters to the school newspaper every time you see a rope or a white supremacist poster on campus? Are you really so fragile that your mental well-being is owned – wholly and completely – by some racist frat boys?
Like we said, bring in the psychiatrist. Because these kids have some serious problems waiting for them when they get out in the real world. We aren’t confident in their ability to cope.
Litter, after all, can be found just about everywhere.
