It’s a rough day for Kappa Alpha Order at Tulane.
As our sister site TSM reported, the chapter has received an endless amount of backlash on social media for their continuation of an annual tradition of building a wall around their house.
Whether of their own choosing or by vandalism — there’s no proof of one situation or the other — messages promoting Trump and his “build that wall” quote covered the wall of sandbags. There were also allegedly racial slurs mixed in with the odd paint job, but no clear photos of any such words have yet surfaced.
In an attempt to justify the villainizing of this chapter, the liberals have dug up a photo over 20 years old to tie the group to racist values.
What they fail to recognize is that Robert E. Lee, who served in both the US and Confederate armies, was listed by Kappa Alpha’s founders as an inspiration for his chivalry and gentlemanly conduct. He was named a spiritual founder in 1923. So even though it rubs you the wrong way if you don’t know the full story, KA wasn’t celebrating racism back in 1985, they were celebrating the heritage of their organization.
Bringing us back to the present, the wall built by Tulane KA was ravaged by a whole bunch of overly sensitive citizens who probably were concerned about their safe space. Even though the wall was entirely on the property that the KA house sits on, these social justice warriors took to trespassing and going full Ronald Reagan, tearing down the wall.
If you listen carefully, you can hear brothers and or pledges reasoning with the trespassers that they are working to take the wall down and insisting they leave the “private property.”
There has still been no response from Kappa Alpha..
