Student leaders dominate campus with oppressive intolerance

The Student Government Association at Johns Hopkins University is making waves for conservative groups, in evidence of increasing intolerance on campus.

Johns Hopkins University entranceMost recently, the SGA at John Hopkins went up in arms about the idea of bringing Chick-fil-A to a new multiuse facility, despite the fact that there are no definite plans to do so. The SGA says Chick-fil-A's support of natural marriage is what they term "microaggression."

Andrew Guernsey who is a co-president of Voice for Life on the JHU campus, told Fox News that he's run up against the SGA before when his group wanted to erect a pro-life, fetal-development display.

“When I came to John Hopkins University, I thought there would be a free exchange of ideas,” he says. “What I’m finding is this increasing intolerance from my peers, and the student government in particular, has led them to say that they literally fear for their physical safety because students have different opinions.”

He says Johns Hopkins is being dominated by an "intolerance strain of liberalism" bent on silencing dissent.

“George Will wrote about this when he wrote about our case, that it seems that colleges and universities are valuing diversity in everything but thought,” he explains. “And I think this is a disturbing trend on college campuses.” 

After the opposition to putting up the fetal-development display created national controversy, Guernsey says his group was notified they could have the display after all.
