(Liberty Bell) – It’s no secret that liberals have overtaken higher education in America and they literally ruin everything. Our flag should instill a sense of pride and respect in all American citizens especially on the anniversary of one of the worst terror attacks on American soil. The memory of those killed on 9/11 should never be diminished and our love for America should never be stifled yet that is exactly the kind of thing leftists engage in.
The liberals in charge at Baylor University took it upon themselves to place trigger warning signs on a campus 9/11 display flagging it as “sensitive content.” The display has been put on for several years by the Young Conservatives of Texas, Baylor chapter in a prominent area of the campus but, naturally, in woke 2020 some students are too “sensitive” to handle the patriotic display in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11.
The Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) said this in a press release sent to the Daily Caller News Foundation:
For several years, the Young Conservatives of Texas at Baylor have carried the tradition of setting up a 9/11 memorial on Baylor’s campus. 2,977 American flags line Fountain Mall every year to honor the victims and first responders who lost their lives during the tragic terror attacks against the United States. The memorial traditionally only includes flags and no signage or political messaging. Every year we do our best to ensure that this event is about America not politics.
Upon our initial request to place the memorial this year, we made it clear to Baylor Student Activities that this was not a political event. Less than 24 hours before the event, Baylor Student Activities informed us they would need to place “expression activity” signs near the flags.
Baylor Student Activities placed a sign that read; “Please be advised: sensitive content”. These signs amount to nothing short of a trigger warning for an event that should unite all Americans.
As Baylor students, this is incredibly saddening for us to see. 9/11 is a day that we can forget our political identities and come together to remember those who died and celebrate the triumph of our nation over evil. We ask that the University formally apologize to the Baylor community for displaying the signs at our memorial in order to assert their commitment to the victims of 9/11.
“The Young Conservatives of Texas at Baylor are highly disappointed in Baylor’s conduct in this matter. We have consistently proven that we are dedicated to conducting a respectful and apolitical 9/11 memorial and have never even asked to put our name with this event,” Baylor YCT Chair Jake Neidert further told the DCNF.
“At the end of the day, Young Conservatives of Texas stands for Principles over Party, and today Baylor made a 9/11 memorial out to be a sensitive partisan and political event. Memorializing 9/11 isn’t political or sensitive, it’s distinctly American,” Neidert added.
Displaying the American Flag to memorialize those who tragically perished in the 9/11 attacks is now considered “Sensitive Content”. Honoring those who died and first responders isn’t “Sensitive”, it’s “American”. pic.twitter.com/0DHmY7h2sJ

In response the University said, “Baylor University fully supports the 9/11 display of American flags depicting the thousands of lives lost as a result of the attacks that took place 19 years ago,” the school told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Out of reverence for the exhibit of flags and in knowing that its moving symbolism could evoke a wide range of emotions, signage was placed near the display notifying those who passed by of its potential impact.”
“We regret that the signage we used has taken away from the intent of the display and apologize for any misunderstanding this may have caused,” the statement continued.
At least they apologized but the signs never should have been placed at the display to begin with.
