I wish this were an Onion article

Loyola University Maryland was going to have an "America" party.  This was decided well before the election of Donald Trump.  Now that the Donald is the Pres-elect?

According to The Daily Caller, one female student told Loyola's Student Government Association that she felt like "a victim of horrible hate words," and expected to be re-traumatized at the party. The university administration intervened as well, pressuring SGA to change course.
"None of it is positive and it sounds very alienating, divisive and harmful," said Executive Vice President Susan Donovan in an email. "We have made progress in providing a welcoming climate on campus and do we want to reverse that progress with a theme that divides us?" 
Dean of Students Sheilah Horton fretted that the America-themed party "provides an opportunity for students to dress or behave in a way that offends or oppresses others." She noted that even one negative event could cause the entire community to feel unsafe.

These special little snowflakes need to GROW THE FUCK UP.  A party that celebrates the country you live in is not divisive, unless you just happen to hate the entire idea of America.  And if that's the case, then pack your bags and GET THE FUCK OUT.

There is no nice way to say it:  These people are intellectual children, shitting on the country that allows them to live in their protective little bubble.  And like all naughty children, they need to be spanked.
