Socialist Students Plan Nationwide Inauguration Protests

Socialist Students, a "social justice" group that wants to remake the United States into a socialist country, say they will stage massive nationwide campus walkouts and protests to #ResistTrump on January 20 when Donald Trump is sworn in as nation’s 45th president, reports Breitbart.

So far, Socialist Students list 11 participating cities including Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, and Seattle. On Facebook, protest pages exist for the University of California at Berkeley, UCLA, Western Washington University, University of Cincinnati, University of Minnesota, and Portland State University. The organization boasts affiliations with nearly 50 campuses across the country. Among them are the University of Texas at Austin, Temple University, the University of Arkansas, and the University of Utah. They claim high school students will also take part in walkouts. Socialist Students U.K. plan to stand in solidarity with their American comrades on Inauguration Day.

The Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) also issued an Inauguration Day #ResistTrump call-to-action. They demand sanctuary campuses everywhere, the preservation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), free tuition, the end of “racist testing,” and the lifting of alleged college admissions quotas for African-American, Chicano, Latino, Asian, or other “oppressed groups.” SDS says they strive for a “fair and just society” with no more wars, no U.S. intervention, no police crime, and no deportations.

And where are the libertarian student protests against Trump? There aren't any. Too many libertarians have been co-opted by the protectionist, Iran-hating, ISIS-fighting incoming interventionist president.

Sadly, protest on campus is almost entirely coming from wacko social justice warriors.

Via Breitbart:
Socialist Students are the collegiate wing of Socialist Alternative, a Trotskyist revolutionary political party, according to Discover the Networks. Socialist Alternative considers Republicans and Democrats both the parties of big business and blames “the global capitalist system as the root cause of the economic crisis, poverty, discrimination, war, and environmental destruction.” They support big unions, big government, big education, big green energy, Black Lives Matter, illegal immigrant rights, and a publicly-funded single-payer healthcare system.
Their very lengthy to-do list includes breaking up Wall Street and seizing democratic control of the major banks and energy companies. Socialist Alternative wants guaranteed pensions, a shortened work week with no loss in pay, and $600 per week salary for stay-at-home parents, the disabled, and the elderly. They believe that with continuously applied pressure they can build a resistance and “Trump can be defeated.”

  1. The U.S. government should abandon ANY an ALL sanctions against Venezuela. Declare a deep and abiding friendship with them and establish a collegiate exchange program for all these lefty kids.
    This removes any excuses like Cuba had like the U.S. was causing their miserable economic conditions. In addition, the exchange kids can enjoy puppy dog hunting and dumpster diving in Caracas. This should teach them a lot about socialism.

  2. I don't think Congressmen take note of protests on campus or off. I would hope that Libertarian students are focused on going to classes and learning valuable skills.

    1. I agree. Although whether congresscritters listen or not, protests against politicians are a waste of time. Action will serve better. And the best action is that which will improve yourself.

  3. I now laugh heartily whenever I see some list of SJW grievances that includes opposition to war and "US intervention." 8 years of Obombya goes by without a peep on these issues and now that Trump's on the way they've woken up like some kind of Rip Van Winkle/Eugene V. Debs hybrid. So principled. /s

    This is getting really ridiculous now, Wenzel.
    Libertarians aren't protesting because college is for STUDYING, not protesting. And here you are expecting them to be just as moronic and insufferable as socialist assholes. Would you have said any of this if Hillary had won the elections?
    Being a watchdog is one thing. Letting your pure hatred for Trump dictate your articles is quite another.
