Message that read “suck it up, pussies!” investigated by Wisconsin police
A note that made fun of students for grieving over Donald Trump’s election victory is being investigated as a “hate crime” by police in Wisconsin.
The message, which read, “Suck it up, pussies!” was posted on the inside window of the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion at Edgewood College in Madison.
According to Vice President for Student Development Tony Chambers, the message caused, “A great deal of fear, sadness, and anger among students, faculty, and staff” and “was hateful and harmful toward members of our community”.
University staff subsequently “determined that the message constituted a Hate Crime, based on guidelines from the Jeanne Clery Act and state law”.
Think that’s crazy? After the University reported the incident, the Madison, Wisconsin Police Department is also now treating the case as a “hate crime”.
Wisconsin state law turns a crime into a “hate crime” if it targets someone based on their “race, religion, color, disability, sexual orientation, national origin or ancestry.”
It remains unclear as to why posting a funny note is a “crime” at all.
This is the world that social justice warriors are trying to create – one in which making jokes, making fun of their idiocy, or merely disagreeing with their political opinions is deemed a “hate crime” or harassment.
Chambers says the incident highlights “a new era of intolerance, fear, and mistrust.” Presumably, he’s unaware of the innumerable examples of Trump supporters being violently attacked and abused over the last 2 weeks.
