Today's award goes to all the politically correct students and staff at Bowdoin College in Maine.
Some students wore sombreros to a tequila-themed birthday party at Bowdoin College — and others were so offended that the school had to provide them with safe spaces and counseling to deal with it.
According to the school’s newspaper, the Bowdoin Orient, the e-mail invitation to the event called it “a ‘tequila’ party” and then added, “we’re not saying it’s a fiesta, but we’re also not not saying that :) (we’re not saying that).”
This phrasing was, presumably, aiming to poke fun at the way the PC police often lose their minds over pretty much any party where tequila is present — which wound up being exactly what happened with this one.
Yep. According to the Orient, one student (1) reported that some of the attendees had been wearing sombreros at the same time as they were drinking tequila at the party, and all hell broke loose.
In an e-mail to National Review Online, sophomore Richard Arms states that there have been “3 school-wide emails from deans and our president, and there have been several ‘safe-space’ opportunities on campus for students to discuss how they were hurt and offended” by the party.
. . .
Yes — safe spaces for people who have been hurt by the very existence of tequila parties and punishment for the people responsible for them.

So they're offended by students wearing sombreros and drinking tequila? Well, bless their little moonbat hearts . . . What are they going to do when they get out into the big, bad world, unsheltered by the politically correct atmosphere at Bowdoin, and find that nobody gives a damn about their hurt feelings, and nobody's going to provide a 'safe space' where they can get over them?
(I can't get over the fact that Major-General Joshua Chamberlain, hero of the hour at Little Round Top during the Battle of Gettysburg [for which he was later awarded the Medal of Honor], six times wounded during the Civil War and four-time Governor of Maine, was a professor at, and later president of, Bowdoin College. I suspect if he could speak to us from the grave, he'd have a few choice words for these special snowflakes about what being 'hurt' or 'offended' really means . . . )
