Song ‘I’ve Got Friends in Safe Spaces’ for Snowflake Millennials on College Campuses

wicked-groundsIt only took a while for two real men to do a parody of those who seek comfort in “safe spaces” whether it be on a college or university campus or perhaps in your local Starbucks or Wicked Grounds coffee shop. Steve McGrew and Chad Prather, using the music Darth Brooks’ “I’ve Got Friends in Low Places” melody redid as “I’ve Got Friends in Safe Spaces.”

A Los Angeles Times Op-Ed “Campuses are breaking apart into ‘safe spaces’” notes:

The meaning of a “safe space” has shifted dramatically on college campuses. Until about two years ago, a safe space referred to a room where people — often gay and transgender students — could discuss problems they shared in a forum where they were sheltered from epithets and other attacks.

[ … ]

Safe space activism stems primarily from the separatist impulses associated with the politics of identity, already rampant on campus.

[ … ]

In 2015 and 2016, students of color at many colleges called for segregated safe spaces.

[ … ]

It seems the cultivation of identity has encouraged such a psychic and emotional distance between people that some prefer to stay in their bubble everywhere they go.

[ … ]

Encouraging students to engage with the unfamiliar and account for their ideas used to be one of attributes of a vibrant academic institution. Today’s university managers, however, are more likely to be complicit in relieving students of the uncomfortable burden of “being interrogated.”

[ … ]

There are worrying signs that future undergraduates will be even more disposed to embrace such self-segregation than their predecessors. The campaign for establishing a Queer Housing Program at Haverford College expresses the spirit of the times. [Emphasis added]

The LA Times op-ed concludes with this statement, “The popularity of identity politics among insecure millennials threatens to fracture campus life to the point that undergraduates are inhabiting separate spaces and leading parallel lives.”

Now I don’t know about you but safe spaces have become the pacifier for sissies, don’t you think?

WARNING: If you’re a liberal, listening to this music may trigger you to run, don’t walk, to your safe spaces. 

LYRICS

By Steve McGrew and Chad Prather

Blame it all on our roots we never wore boots
and never once played in the street
We feel very bitter
get our news off of Twitter
And we just can’t handle defeat

You saw the surprise and the fear in our eyes
When Donald became president
Screamed this can’t be true
Americas through
And to the safe spaces we went

I’ve got friends in Safe Spaces
And If you don’t go with us
Then you must be racist
That is our catch phrase
Where is my latte

Come on in and let’s get cozy
Showing off participation trophies
Watching CNN
In Safe Spaces

Well we all get along
And sing happy songs
And watch movies by Michael Moore
We hate the alt right
We’ve got puppies on site
And we lay around on the floor

Oh there’s coloring books
And sad long faced looks
And tears just explode from our face
But give us an hour we’re delicate flowers
We just need an embrace…..

Oh I’ve got friends in Safe Spaces
If you don’t go with us
Then you must be racist
That is our catch phrase
Where is my latte

Come on in and let’s get cozy
Showing off participation trophies
Watching CNN
In Safe Spaces

    More sunshine needs to be focused on these sheltered “kids”. When will they ever be allowed (forced?) to grow up and face reality that not everoyne thinks the same way that they do?They’ve been indoctrinated in “higher education” no-think. Most adults over 40 have eventually learned to think & make their own decisions about the world outside of college. The question is “Will they foever be stuck in an emotional state of childhood?”.

    Finally someone has the nerve to tell the truth about our young people. Just maybe they will realize just how silly they really are. I1m just wondering where are the parents of these snowflakes. My children would not be acting likes this. My daughter went to college and now she`s a RN and manger at the hospital where she works. No snowflake here. Thank you guys
