An 18 year-old girl has received a threat from Marquette University to rescind her admission to the school after she expressed public support for President Donald Trump.
The New York Post reports that Samantha Pfefferle, a passionate supporter of President Trump, received an alarming message from Marquette University’s admissions department after it became aware of Pfefferle’s support for the President.
Undergraduate admissions dean Brian Troyer reached out to Pfefferle to notify her that she “wasn’t a student”, despite being admitted to the school, in an alarming warning intended to suggest her admission could easily be revoked as a consequence of her support for the Trump presidency.
“[Troyer] had the heart to tell me I wasn’t a student,” Pfefferle stated. “This means that my classification is still in limbo and is currently being decided by the administration. I have been accepted, I paid for my housing, I have my roommates, I even have a complete class schedule. If that doesn’t make me a student, what does?”
Marquette’s administration staff went on to grill Pfefferle on her hypothetical views towards Dreamer students on campus, and how Pfefferle would react if Dreamers felt uncomfortable with her presence on the Marquette campus. Marquette’s assistant dean then asked Pfefferle whether she was “comfortable with the reputation [she] had established for [herself].
A Marquette spokeswoman later told Empower Wisconsin that Pfefferle’s admission offer had not been rescinded, but acknowledged they had scolded Pfefferle on her use of social media to support President Trump.
The message from Marquette University was concerning a recent video posted by Pfefferle on social media platform TikTok, where she was dancing to rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s ‘GOOBA’ song while messages supportive of the President appeared on-screen. During the video, Pfefferle was wearing a sweatshirt with the name of Marquette University on it.
According to the College Fix’s Jackson Walker, leftists responded with rage. One stated that they “hope [Pfefferle] gets shot”, while another said they’d “pray for [Pfefferle] but [she’s] not worth it”.
