The official account for Penn State Liberal Arts deleted this tweet that dared to say conservative “viewpoints are important” on campus:
The mob has come for this now-deleted @PSULiberalArts tweet. The well-intended but poorly conceived graphic, the reaction, the reaction to the reaction — a true artifact of our time. pic.twitter.com/pyxjKLcJTu

It’s “bonkers” they shout!
Who approved this statement? It’s absolutely bonkers.

And it’s “NOT THE SAME”:
Conservatives having their feelings hurt because other students think they're sexist, racist assholes is NOT THE SAME as protecting the physical safety & humanity of others!
— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) June 12, 2020
Conservative Lives Matter is certainly a take!

And this reaction is exactly why Penn State needs a tweet like that:
conservative is not a protected identity category
