It appears that claims are made, but aren’t verified by the media or college administrators. But, the Left and their indoctrinated college students claim that Donald Trump’s election has led to increased hateful rhetoric on college campuses. Enter Gettysburg College:

In a statement obtained by The Gettysburgian, protest organizer Joseph Recupero explains that students “can no longer face the mental and emotional abuse of hate speech,” noting that they “should not have to fear walking across campus at night” in the wake of Donald Trump’s election.

“We are here for an education, but how can we focus on learning when we are constantly looking over our shoulders?” Recupero asks in a statement promoting the November 17 protest. “So let’s make something happen. Together. This is a time for all of us to unite under an understanding that hate is a poison that we will not swallow.”

The demonstration, which started that Thursday afternoon, continued well into the following day as protesters garnered the support of their school’s president, who met with several of the organizers of the demonstration and even encouraged other students at the college to support the movement.
