An Iowa state representative has introduced a bill to the state legislature that would fine universities responsible for setting up ‘cry rooms’ and grief counseling to help students cope with election results.

An Iowa state representative has introduced a bill he’s named “Suck it up, Buttercup” to the state legislature, hoping to deter some protests and university counseling services related to the presidential election.

Republican State Rep. Bobby Kaufmann, who represents the 3,000-resident town of Wilton near the state’s border with Illinois, put forth the bill, which intends to levy fines on state universities that fund counseling services such as “cry rooms” to help students cope with events like President-elect Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton. The bill would also make those who block highway traffic subject to criminal penalties – an initiative spurred by highway shutdowns in the state during anti-Trump protests.

“That’s a waste of taxpayer dollars and that also doesn’t prepare kids for life,” he told Fox & Friends in an interview Wednesday. “In life there’s winners and losers and when your car breaks down, your kids get sick or you have to take a second job to pay your mortgage, you don’t get to go to a cry zone, you don’t get to pet a pony. You have to deal with it.”

The bill mirrors a larger attitude seen nationwide that has dismissed protesters and encouraged those who voted for Mrs. Clinton to “get over” her loss and accept a Trump victory. For many, especially women, minorities, and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, who felt victimized by the president-elect’s language and policy proposals, the defeat is seen as more than just a political loss, but also the victory of a candidate who embodies racist, xenophobic, and sexist viewpoints that could cause them direct harm. The result has been a continuation of the campaign’s divisive nature despite calls for unity, resulting in large scale protests and acts of bigotry through vandalism and violence in a response to elections that many say hasn’t been seen in modern politics.

The lying mainstream media is promoting faux outrage as real. These silly folks doing all the whining and complaining are self-indulgent babies who need a good kick in the butt.

So, yeah, suck it up, buttercup.

  1. “The bill would also make those who block highway traffic subject to criminal penalties”.
    Blocking a public highway intentionally and maliciously has been illegal since the days of Magna Carta, let us say 1000 years or so. It was probably illegal on Roman highways 2500 years ago. There is no need for new laws, just enforce the ones that already exist. It is almost always illegal to be a pedestrian on fast roads like motorways, freeways, expressways etc. E.g. that freeway in Calais where the Coons swarm, they could have been arrested for law breaking, but were not.
    I sometimes think there are so many laws, that the cops and politicians have forgotten 90% of them. So the pollies keep making new ones. Which may never be enforced, and nobody cares.
    So lawmaking is often just a feel good publicity stunt, like this new law maybe.

    “when your car breaks down, your kids get sick or you have to take a second job to pay your mortgage, you don’t get to go to a cry zone, you don’t get to pet a pony. You have to deal with it.” He’s right, you know. Even babies are not always allowed to cry and get their own way. Only the hopes, dreams, fantasies and wishes of adult lefties and Coons and LGBTs and Feminazis etc must never be frustrated.

    • In the 60s Birmingham Alabama was dealt with harshly by the press for breaking up Martin Luther Coon demonstrations. The city never really got over its bad reputation. The cops should be doing their duty, but the Mayor appoints the police chief and he’s going to be a politician. Whites need to hold a General Strike, blocking all roads so that the food trucks can’t run. Unprepared blacks would be starving within two or three days. I keep a two month supply of canned goods in my little apartment. When I had a house, I kept a two year supply of food. I’m ready!

  2. I’m looking for examples of “homophobia” from Trump. So far I’m not coming up with anything of substance. I’ve never seen so many words shoved into one man’s mouth as is happening with this man.
