Liberal Intolerance: Marquette U. threatened to rescind admission of student for being pro-Trump

Liberals/Progressives/Democrats claiming to be tolerant is one of the biggest myths, i.e.,  lies, they promote about themselves.

Here’s the latest example of the Left’s intolerance.

Founded by the Society of Jesus (or Jesuits) in 1881, Marquette University is a private  university in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. With a current student body of about 12,000, Marquette is one of the largest Jesuit universities in the United States, and the largest private university in Wisconsin. 

Jackson Walker reports for The College Fix, July 7, 2020, that Marquette University threatened to rescind or cancel Samantha Pfefferle’s admission as a freshman after she posted a video to her account on the popular social media site TikTok showing her support for President Trump.

The video, titled “When the libs find their way to your page,” has  captions such as “When people see that I support Trump,” “Then try to hate on me,” and “And think I’ll change my views,” over a video of Pfefferle dancing.

The video features a Trump 2020 flag as well as a sign reading “Marquette 2024.” The song used in the video is rapper 6ix9ine’s GOOBA, and plays lyrics such as “ He’s mad, she’s’ mad, big sad, haha, don’t care, stay mad.”

Pfefferle’s post has been watched nearly 600,000 times and has since caught the attention of the Marquette community, some of whom began harassing Pfefferle. Others threatened her life.

One TikTok user wrote: “I hope you get shot.” Another commenter wrote: “I’d pray for you but you’re not worth it.”

Pfefferle told The College Fix in an interview that “I was extremely disappointed by the incendiary comments” and that “The response from my peers has been repulsive.”

She said that after she posted her video on  TikTok, she was contacted by Brian Troyer, dean of undergraduate admissions at Marquette, who  told her her acceptance to the school was far from certain.

Pfefferle said, “[He] had the heart to tell me I wasn’t a student. This means that my classification is still in limbo and is currently being decided by the administration. I have been accepted, I paid for my housing, I have my roommates, I even have a complete class schedule. If that doesn’t make me a student, what does?”

Some Marquette administrators also asked Pfefferle a series of questions meant to judge her morals, she said. “They also asked me hypothetical questions regarding Dreamers [children born in the United States of illegal aliens]. How would I respond if a Dreamer who lived down the hall from me came up to me and told me she didn’t feel safe or comfortable with my views and me being on campus. They also asked me if they thought there was anything I could do to improve my image on campus. They proceeded to ask if I was comfortable with the reputation I have established for myself. The assistant dean asked if I put any thought into the response I would be getting from my videos.”

A Marquette spokeswoman told Empower Wisconsin that the school had not rescinded Pfefferle’s offer, but admitted that “the admissions team did recently have a conversation with incoming freshman Samantha Pfefferle about statements made on her social media accounts.”

Progressive haters are banding on social media to ensure Pfefferle would not be admitted into Marquette University:

  • Calling Pfefferle “transphobic, racist, and xenophobic” and that her video creates “an unsafe space for the LGBTQ+ community, first generation students, and Dreamers at Marquette,” an Instagram user created a copy and paste email template requesting to have Pfefferle’s admission rescinded from Marquette and is encouraging others to send the email to Marquette’s administration.
  • On TikTok user wrote: “how can i help. she will not be going to college next year.” Another comment reads: “Free speech does not mean no consequences”; yet another gleefully wrote: “i love love LOVE conservatives getting their school offers revoked.”

Pfefferle has supporters. There is a petition on Change.org to keep her enrolled at Marquette. Titled “Stop Marquette University From Removing Incoming Conservative Student for Her Beliefs,” the petition states:

Freedom of expression is the most fundamental of all rights. What precedence are we setting for future conservative generations? We can’t afford to capitulate in the face of tyranny when our youth are depending on us to protect their rights.

As of the writing of this post, 6,223 has signed the petition.

The petition clearly has had an effect because Pfefferle told The College Fix that on July 6, Marquette told her they would not revoke her admission. However, Marquette’s officials still have not responded to College Fix‘s numerous requests for comment.

Be happy they deny white people. College isn’t worth two-cents.
Let them make snow-flakes of the other races whom they accept freely.

How many conversations did the admission team have with BLM advocates about their social media postings? I’m guessing not a one…

She should sue them for her tuition costs, ‘pain and suffering’, ’emotional trauma’, etc.
Funny how the liberal morons are only tolerant of those who have the same viewpoints, and so INtolerant of anyone who has opposing views. Don’t they see their own hypocrisy?

No, they don’t see their own hypocrisy….until they have to pony up money for the error of their ways. So, yes, she should sue them for NEEDLESS pain & suffering attempting to withdraw a contract they offered her & she accepted, esp after she’d already paid for her room & board & had been assigned a room & room mates. Also, no one ELSE was questioned about their morals as they did her…I bet? (And WHO made up the morality questions? Were they equitable—asking both sides of being/feeling “threatened”on campus, etc). She was subject to a POST-acceptance criteria NOT spelled… Read more »

Leftists Librats espouse tolerance, right up to the time that someone has a thought that differs from their narrative. Then the hypocrites show their true colors by pouncing on, vilifying, threatening, berating and ostracizing a young woman whose only “crime” is supporting a duly president. If Pfefferle does get the boot, I would hope that she would sue the frocks off the S.J.s. I would be happy to help her legal fees. The socialists have gotten away with this crap for too long. It’s time we started fighting back.

I really hope she gets good grades – I’d hate to see her penalized in the classroom for her beliefs.

Kids quickly figure out the easiest way to get a good grade is to give the teacher the “appropriate” opinion and write about the appropriate subject (i.e., Obama good, OrangeManBad). This starts in elementary school and continues all the way through the public indoctrination system.

“When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids,” Obama said in the Rose Garden. “I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this. And that everybody pull together.” https://www.politico.com/blogs/politico44/2012/03/obama-if-i-had-a-son-hed-look-like-trayvon-118439 Words matter, Obama. Context does, as well… My main message is to the parents of Samantha Pfefferle. You know, if I had a daughter, she’d look like Samantha.All of us as Americans should take this with the seriousness it deserves.“Obviously, this is a tragedy. I can only imagine what these parents are going through.… Read more »
