Amherst insanity

Students at Amherst College in Massachusetts join in and double down on the bizarre brand of student activism now sweeping some U.S. campuses. 

Among other things, students at Amherst demand an end to hurtful rhetoric like "all lives matter," as well as the silencing of those who dare advocate for free speech. 

Think I'm kidding?

From the Amherst protesters list of demands that accompany protests being held on campus:
President Martin must issue a statement to the Amherst College community at large that states we do not tolerate the actions of student(s) who posted the “All Lives Matter” posters, and the “Free Speech” posters that stated that “in memoriam of the true victim of the Missouri Protests: Free Speech.” Also let the student body know that it was racially insensitive to the students of color on our college campus and beyond who are victim to racial harassment and death threats; alert them that Student Affairs may require them to go through the Disciplinary Process if a formal complaint is filed, and that they will be required to attend extensive training for racial and cultural competency.
