An Oregon High School Lets Their Students Walk Out in Protest Because Chick-Fil-A Makes Them Feel Unsafe. Are We Doomed?

Just over a week ago, high school students in Oregon got triggered.

Somewhere around 100 students walked out of school in protest…

There seems to have been quite the cultural shift — I can’t imagine anyone in my high school feeling entitled enough to protest…anything.

We were in high school…whatever they said, we did. Because…we were…in high school.

But today’s teens appear to have the power.

And so, at West Linn High, they used it.

A C-note’s worth of kids showed the school who’s boss by walking out in order to protest the WLHS’s dastardly decision to allow a Chick-fil-A food truck to sell delicious chicken sandwiches during a football game.

This came, according to Portland’s KATU2, amid other incidents which were said to make LGBT students not feel “safe.”

Safe — we defined that differently back in the day, too. If you were alive, basically, you were safe.

The walkout was organized by the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance. Some teachers helped the students prepare for the rally.

A group wearing MAGA hats also took part in the Friday protest: Instead of rainbow flags, they were waving Chick-fil-A bags.

In response to the LGBT uproar, West Linn’s public information officer, Andrew Kilstrom had this to say:

“The West Linn-Wilsonville School District takes all matters of school safety seriously, and diligently investigates and addresses all potential safety concerns. That includes bullying or cyberbullying.”

Furthermore, from KATU:

The school says it’ll look further into a vetting process for vendors in the future.

Kilstrom said he’s not aware of any specific incidents of harassment among students. He said there have been issues in the past and its something they’re constantly working on.

He said the Chick-Fil-A food truck was one of several vendors selected by the booster club for football games this season.

Feel free to peruse the (long!) video for various moments of protest, which include the chant, “Learn without hate!”

We defined that word differently, too; back then, it denoted…hate. Now, it looks to just mean “disagreement.”

But it’s more than just teens updating the term; the aforementioned mantra came from roughly two dozen adults supporting the rally from across the street.

Personally, I find it amazing that any kind of protest occurs among youngsters at all, let alone while in school. When I was their age, the principal would’ve just suspended everyone who left where they were supposed to be. And to whatever degree tenure allowed, any teacher encouraging the protest would’ve been fired.

Putting aside the sinister issue of a piece of chicken with a pickle on it being sold at a game where people run around in the grass and throw a ball, what do you think about the modern age’s empowerment of young people? Better or worse?

Are we lucky to have such emboldened kids, or are we in big trouble?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Oh, and here’s a bit of social media response:
