“Safe spaces” are all the rage on many college campuses these days, and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities student government has gotten in on the ridiculousness:

From Campus Reform:
On Tuesday, November 10, the Minnesota Student Association (MSA)–the undergraduate student government at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (UMN)– rejected a resolution for a moment of recognition on future anniversaries of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Theo Menon, the student group representative to MSA for the College Republicans (CRs) at UMN, introduced the resolution; MSA’s forum voted against it 36-23 (with three abstentions).
At-large MSA representative and Director of Diversity and Inclusion David Algadi voiced severe criticism of the resolution. He also made sure to emphasize 9/11’s status as a national tragedy in his response.
“The passing of this resolution might make a space that is unsafe for students on campus even more unsafe,” said Algadi, “Islamophobia and racism fueled through that are alive and well.”
The whole story is here.
Just when you think we've reached peak insanity, someone does something like this. https://t.co/37XuEMxXQF

@campusreform Of course he has to make it about race. Want a safe space? Go hide underneath your bed and leave everyone else alone.

To sum up the situation in Minnesota, some college students believe a 9/11 commemoration could make unsafe spaces, all while the state government recently gave a license to drive a big rig to a person on the DHS “no fly” list.
