Leftwing Columbia Profs: ‘Trump’s Election Driving Students to Suicide’

LMAO!  Hopefully the libtards will do it, enmasse.

Two leftie Columbia University professors sent a letter to the school’s president that links the “political suffering” of students and faculty to a “cluster of suicides” on campus, and blames President Donald Trump.

From The Washington Times

Two Columbia University professors recently sent a letter to the institution’s president that linked a “fog” of political suffering to a “cluster of suicides” by students.

Professors Robert Pollack and Letty Moss-Salentijn, the co-chairs of the Columbia Faculty Affairs Committee, contacted Columbia President Lee Bollinger on Feb. 24 about the need to help “faculty to reach into themselves and find strength to express themselves.” The two mentioned student suicides before requesting venues for quiet conversations and easy access to websites dedicated to preserving freedom.

“We know no one at Columbia who is not upset, chronically and deeply, since the election,” the letter reads. “We know this is true of the Administration, and your letter [on executive orders] certainly embodies this distress. We know it is true of our students, and the cluster of suicides this month can have no other meaning.”

Dr. Pollack contacted the educational watchdog Campus Reform on Wednesday to protest its coverage.

“Speaking for both himself and Moss-Salentijn, [Dr. Pollack ] sent a belated response to Campus Reform denying that the letter was intended to insinuate that recent student suicides have been a result of distress over Trump’s election, even though the sentence in question came in the context of describing the universal ‘distress’ at Columbia ever since the election,” the website reported.

Maybe it’s because they realized that a Degree in Social Justice Warrior and Community Organizing doesn’t have a good future in the employment market after graduation.

  1. Good ole Robert and Letty, watching over the weak kneed pansies in a field of gilded lilies. If the election has added that much trauma to your lives then save us all the expense of coddling you and go jump off a bridge. The American education system has a lot more problems than low math and reading scores.

    If so, they will try suicide over the years. What a disappointed life.
