Loyola Cancels American Themed Party Because It May Oppress Some Students....Wait What?

Washtimes – Students at Loyola University Maryland were recently pressured to abort plans for an “America”-themed party over concerns they might “oppress” others. “I encourage you to reconsider this plan in light of the legitimate concerns raised by so many,” the school’s executive vice president, Sarah Donovan, told student government members in emails provided to the Daily Caller. “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?” The official said her opinion on the event after talking to some students and faculty was that it sounded “very alienating, divisive and harmful.” Sheilah Horton, the university’s dean of students, said America-themed events provide “an opportunity for students to dress or behave in a way that offends or oppresses others,” the Daily Caller reported Monday.“Even one negative event, especially with social media can cause the campus community to feel unsafe; it can be shared with potential students which can have an effect on admissions and indeed can be the defining incident for the class of 2017,” Ms. Horton said.

I absolutely do not understand stories like these. How can an American themed party oppress other Americans? I mean aren’t all nationalities that live in the United States considered Americans? Isn’t that what makes us great? We’re a huge melting pot? I just don’t understand how an American party in America isn’t inclusive enough? Is Loyola sneaky on a Native American Reservation or something? Then I would understand people being pissed, but having a pro America party in America? What gets more American than that? What can be more inclusive than that?

Hey here is a crazy thought. Maybe instead of cancelling it because school administrators are afraid of a few thin skinned crybabies, they teach that despite what these millennial idiots may think the US is still the best place to live in the world by a mile. Or maybe tell them that if you don’t like the party than don’t fucking go. Because that’s also what makes America great. People have the freedom of choice and can decide what parties they want to attend and which ones they don’t. But you can’t just always be offended by everything and cry till you get your way. School administrators doing it big per usual.
