Outrageous 'Delicate Snowflake' Students Protest Cops Staying on Campus for RNC
More than 400 students at Cleveland's Case Western Reserve University signed a petition over the scheduled "riot police occupation" of their campus during the Republican National Convention.
The protest was in response to the university agreeing to provide housing for officers and National Guardsmen who are traveling into the city to provide extra security for the event.
School administrators backed down after the students' petition, choosing to essentially shut down during the convention.
The university's president apologized to the students who were "hurt" by the decision to host police officers on the campus.
The petition included demands by students for the "riot police" officers to "store all weapons, equipment, and riot-control gear off campus" and to "refrain from entering University-owned buildings, with the exception of their assigned residence halls."
One petitioner wrote: "I am deeply troubled by the presence - even temporarily - of a militarized police force on the CWRU campus. The number one priority for an educational institution is to guarantee a safe environment for its students, faculty, and staff."
Greg Gutfeld took on the university's decision to cave to the complaints of the "delicate snowflake" students on his show this weekend.
"I would flip them off right now but then they'd have to spend an hour blurring my hand!" he said, before bringing in a panel to discuss.
Retired Navy SEAL Rob O'Neill wondered how the country got to this "bizarre" point.
"The safest place you can be is surrounded by police with guns. ... The cops have become the bad guys," he said.
