Say what you will about Jeff Sessions, but he knows how to play to a crowd.
The attorney general gave a speech Tuesday at a high school leadership conference for Turning Point USA, a youth organization that promotes small government and other conservative causes, and gave the kids an earful about what to expect at college.
The New York Post reports:
“Through trigger warnings about microaggressions, cry closets, safe spaces, optional exams, therapy goats and grade inflation, too many schools are coddling our young people and actively preventing them from scrutinizing the validity of their beliefs,” the attorney general said. “That is the exact opposite of what they’re supposed to do.”
“After the 2016 election, for example, they held a ‘cry-in’ at Cornell,” Sessions continued. “I hope they had plenty of tissues.”
Sessions noted how therapy dogs were brought on campus at the University of Kansas and Play-Doh was provided to students at “the great” University of Michigan. Students at Tufts, Sessions added, were “encouraged to draw out their feelings.”
“Give me a break,” Sessions said.
Acknowledging the raucous crowd, Sessions said the conservative youngsters were better than that.
“You’re going to stand up and defend yourselves. Go get ‘em! Go get ‘em!” the attorney general cheered.
By the looks of his talk, Sessions or his speech writers must read a lot of College Fix stories!
