When the College Republicans chapter at Maryland’s Hood College decided to put up a temporary display honoring prominent conservatives, the group wanted to promote the free exchange of ideas.
“We just wanted to provoke thoughtful discussion,” said club president Christopher Gardner. “We have done that.”
In reality, the young Republicans accomplished even more by exposing how close-minded many of their fellow students have become.
According to reports, several individuals and groups on campus expressed outrage over the display, which has also reportedly been the target of vandalism.
A sign decrying “transphobia” and “bigotry” hung over the GOP quotes in a photo obtained by Campus Reform.
The site also received a statement from the College Republicans chapter.
In it, students allege “faculty members [and] school administrators” were also vocal in their criticism of the display.
