Small Group Of Liberty Univ Former Students Return Diplomas In Protest Of Trump

Yes, some alumni students at Liberty University are whining snowflakes and have bought into the negative media narrative being thrown at President Trump.

Apparently, some Liberty University grads are giving up their diplomas in protest of Donald Trump; my only response is, are you kidding me?

I would never give up my degree in protest of anything. That was years of hard work, lost sleep and not to mention thousands of dollars wrapped into walking on stage, getting my paper and walking off for proud parents. Anyone who gives that up as a political statement doesn’t deserve to keep it in the first place.

Honestly, I’m just flabbergasted by this. To quote the hilarious and infamous George Carlin, “this is really f*** stupid.”

In a group letter first reported by NPR, a small group of alumni are criticizing Falwell for supporting the president in the wake of Trump’s remarks blaming “many sides” for white nationalist violence in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend. The letter slams Falwell for defending Trump’s comments, specifically for his saying there were “very fine people” protesting on both sides.

“This is incompatible with Liberty University’s stated values, and incompatible with a Christian witness,” according to the letter.

One former student government president told NPR that Falwell was “complicit” in Trump’s support for “Nazis and white supremacists.”

“I’m sending my diploma back because the president of the United States is defending Nazis and white supremacists,” Chris Gaumer said. “And in defending the president’s comments, Jerry Falwell, Jr., is making himself and, it seems to me, the university he represents, complicit.”

Falwell responded to the letter and Gaumer’s remarks on ABC’s “This Week,” saying that the alumni “completely misunderstand” his support for Trump.

“[Gaumer] completely misunderstands my support,” Falwell said in response to Gaumer’s quote. “My support for the president is his bold and truthful willingness to call terrorist groups by their name.”

Some People have lost their minds. The media has been spreading the narrative that Trump was taking up for White Supremacist which is not true. Last Saturday, he said he condemned all violence acts which covered white supremacy.

Martha Raddatz hates our President; she would be the first to say that if President Trump cured cancer, he invented it to cure it. ABC has gone downhill in their apparent dislike for our President. Instead of reporting news as it is, they subtly distort, and people fall for it hook, line and sinker. Do you want someone that will say what your itching ears want to hear or someone that is not politically correct and will get the job done?

He didn’t have all the facts of what happened in Charlottesville when he made his first statement, which he was later updated with a larger breakdown which caused him to speak again on Monday with a more stern tone.

I thought what President Trump said the first time was right on. The second time he left no doubt as to what he thought. President Trump has been proven right. The Mayor and Governor of Virginia are responsible. They did not let the Police Officers do their jobs.
