Ever wondered just what happens when the immovable object of safe-space-demanding social justice warriors collides with the irresistible force of free-speech-seeking American students? Wonder no longer…
On Thursday night protestors at Kansas University (KU) hijacked a Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) meeting, reportedly unleashing a virulent tirade against the conservative students, providing a glimpse into the crazy arguments of the far Left.
Leftists can be seen screaming obscenities, berating the calm YAF students, shouting about privilege, safe spaces, and micro aggressions, and threatening to “tear this motherf***ing school up on a daily motherf****ing basis.”
“I don’t study in the library because I don’t feel comfortable with people always wondering what my gender identity is and how I express myself, and I don’t feel comfortable being in classrooms where I am supposed to speak as a transhuman and as a queer person as all queer people,” one student whined. “That shows you that there is a problem with this institution about there not being—that these students are not being taught that they are supposed to create safe spaces.”
Cox, who was also present for the conversation, declared emphatically that “safe spaces are a necessity” and making clear that she would brook no dissent on the matter.
“It’s not a question. It’s not for you to say. It’s not for anyone else to say. Safe spaces are necessary because the institution that we’re at is not a safe space in its entirety,” she claimed. “We have to carve out places and fight for places that we feel safe because not only will we get harassed, we’ll be murdered, we’ll be all this stuff and discriminated against because we have to do that. It’s not because we want to.”
At one point when KU YAF Chairman Gabe Lepinski referred to the protesters as “you guys,” one leftist completely exploded, screaming, “Do not call us guys! That is a micro aggression!”
At another point, one of the protestors broke down when asked about safe spaces, pounding fists on the table and shouting, “I am not retreating! I’m making myself safe and comfortable… If I want this space, I can have this space! It’s my right to have this space!”
The leftists also repeatedly referred to the YAF students as “white supremacists,” scolding them by commenting, “You still reap the privilege of the genocide of Native Americans and slavery.”
The protestors screamed about “white fragility,” their preferred gender pronouns, and not calling illegal immigrants “illegal.”
The incident occurred after students attacked KU YAF Chairman Gabe Lepinski for posting the phrase, “Facts don’t care about your feelings,” in a group promoting leftist campus protests for transgender rights on social media.
The protestors left the meeting enraged, screaming obscenities as they walked down the hallway.
Here is the full meeting… we strongly suggest you put down all sharp objects…
But the final 3 minutes is where it gets really heated as snowflake mentality confronts safe-spaces…

As we have repeatedly noted, no matter where you go in life, someone will be there to offend you.
Maybe it’s a joke you overheard on vacation, a spat at the office, or a difference of opinion with someone in line at the grocery store. Inevitably, someone will offend you and your values. If you cannot handle that without losing control of your emotions and reverting back to your “safe space” away from the harmful words of others, then you’re best to just stay put at home. Remember, though: if people in the outside world scare you, people on the internet will downright terrify you. It’s probably best to just accept these harsh realities of life and go out into the world prepared to confront them wherever they may be waiting.
