Student Suffers Disciplinary Action Over Trump Background During Zoom Meeting; "I Love This Country"
Stockton University will be suspending student Robert Dailyda over a simple Trump photo background during his Zoom meeting. Snowflakes turned to hail as they are now attempting to destroy this student's education. Charges against Dailyda are piling up, he now has 6 disciplinary charges relating to cyberbullying and harassment.
"I have gotten to the point that I have to say something. I love this country. We are a diverse, yet assimilated population from all backgrounds. I believe all must have the same opportunities and I commit to make that a priority. Beyond that, I am done with the leftist agenda of BLM and the white self haters. I have seen it in action in my doctoral classes at Stockton and the general media. I'm not backing down. If we can't get past this, ok, I'm ready to fight to the death for our country and against those that want to take it down. I believe there are also many like me." source FIRE.
The message above was posted on Dailyda's personal Facebook account after he received a bunch of messages from his peers about his harmless background choice. Dailyda faced multiple criticizing messages in private chat and of course, inevitably felt the need to leave in order to avoid further conflict.
Police contacted Dailyda a few days later, receiving a report claiming he had made "threatening statements". After the police did a proper investigation they obviously let him go seeing no need to pursue the charges, just read his post. There were no threats, he was simply showing that he will stand his ground if they refuse to let it go.
July 10th, Robert Dailyda was called in by Stockton's Care and Community Standards Office where they would continue to pester his personal views.
" "They asked him to explain his political views, Zoom background, and Facebook post," FIRE reported. "Dailyda explained that [he] was disappointed with Stockton's institutional endorsement of the Black Lives Matter movement, aspects of which he does not support."
Following the meeting, Stockton administrators officially charged Dailyda with violating nearly a half-dozen provisions of the Campus Code of Conduct, including: Disruptive behavior, Discrimination, Harassment, Hostile environment, Harm
Because of the charges, the university is considering numerous options for disciplinary action against Dailyda, including suspending him, imposing a fine, assigning community service, or mandating he attend a "social justice workshop" and a "decision making workshop." " source theBlaze.
Regardless of personal views, this is America where we exercise our freedom of speech. Robert's Dailyda's views shouldn't have affected his education, and definitely shouldn't have led to a half a dozen charges. Is this where we are now as a country? Where a proud student is suspended and bombarded with petty charges for putting his foot down and refusing to budge for the Sensitive Sallys? Disappointing.
