These college students get it. They really understand what the Trump candidacy is all about on campus. For them it is not about the candidacy of Donald Trump. It is about the liberal majority using brute force from hearing any opinion that differs from their sacred opinions. It is a First Amendment issue when Safe Spaces are demanded to protect sensitive ears from hearing a diverging opinion. The goal is to prevent ANY other ear from hearing a conflicting opinion. These facts and actions are beginning to draw students to this free speech cause for that very reason.

As Written By Rosanna Xia Contact Reporter at the Los Angeles Times:
On campuses across the country, students are standing up for Donald Trump
Hunkered behind a MacBook decorated with stickers that read “This laptop was brought to you by capitalism” and “TRUMP 2016,” Jake Lopez bounces T-shirt slogans off his friend Ian McIlvoy.
“Trumplicans,” he says, nodding with satisfaction. “I think it’ll take off.”
Lopez is the California director of Students for Trump. Working from his dorm at Westmont College, he helps marshal the thousands of students who are pounding out phone calls, taping up fliers and blanketing Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat in an effort to persuade their peers that Donald Trump is the man.
Although vastly outnumbered nationwide by left-leaning classmates chanting “Feel the Bern,” the youngest supporters of the GOP front-runner say they are similarly inspired by the hope of a radically different future and eager to support a leader who strikes them as anti-establishment and willing to speak his mind.
The verbiage that erupts from Trump’s stream-of-consciousness is not universally appreciated by students. Many say the very mention of his name can be hurtful, threatening or cause for intervention.
A Mexican American student at Scripps College in Claremont woke up to “#trump2016” scrawled on the whiteboard outside her dorm room. The student body president called it a “racist act.”
