Liberals have invented a lot of imaginary “triggers”, which serve no other purpose than to effectively erase things they don’t like from the world. This is most common on college campuses, where college snowflakes yell “trigger” whenever they’re confronted with something that they don’t like. But now it’s gone so far as claiming that the American flag, of all things, is triggering and offensive.
Previously, there was a university bylaw requiring that the American flag be present during UC Davis Student Senate meetings. That was evidently unacceptable, because “the concept of United States of America and patriotism is different for every individual”. Senate Bill 76 was introduced by Jose Meneses, a naturalized citizen, and reads, “It shall not be compulsory for the flag of the United State of America to be displayed at ASUCD Senate meetings.”
“It should be at the discretion of the Senate whether presenting the flag is presently necessary,” it continues. “Considering that the flag is seldom present at Senate meetings, it should not be mandated by the Bylaws as a codified practice.”
A UC Davis spokesperson explained that this was not an administrative choice, but one made by students alone. “This a Student Senate bill that the Student Senate [voted] on,” the spokesperson said. But not everyone is happy about the decision.
