Halloween “Costume Police” on College Campuses Threaten Students

With Halloween less than a week away, students on college campuses are being told to be extra careful when they pick out their costumes this year.

Otherwise, they may be subject to disciplinary action and even an investigation by campus police. According to The College Fix:

Members of Tufts University’s Greek system have been told they could face “serious disciplinary sanctions” — including a possible investigation by the campus police — for wearing Halloween costumes that offend peers or make the campus community “feel threatened or unsafe.”

The warning was part of a letter to the presidents of fraternities and sororities on campus signed by various Greek Life council leaders, who asked the chapter presidents to relay the message to their members.

The letter stated in part that “Greek Brothers and Sisters have worn costumes that appropriate cultures and reproduce stereotypes on race, gender, sexuality, immigrant or socioeconomic status. Outfits relating to tragedy, controversy, or acts of violence are also inappropriate. . . It is our mission to promote spaces that allow members of the Tufts community to have fun without feeling as though any part of their identity is being misrepresented or targeted.”

The letter went on to warn “there are consequences for wearing an offensive costume.”

This is just one way that so-called “social justice warriors” on college campuses are attempting to shut down free speech.

College campuses are supposed to be a place where differing opinions are welcomed and that they must stand on their intellectual merits.

Sadly, the radical socialists that often dominate colleges in the United States are resorting to tactics including shouting down their opponents – namely conservatives who poke holes in their “arguments.”
