Liberty University will reopen this week, Jerry Falwell inviting students to return and ordering faculty to come back to work.
Gonna see a lot more of this and it's gonna be a problem
14.4 percent of everyone in Lynchburg — about 12,000 people — is over the age of 65, if you want a sense of how many people Jerry Falwell Jr. is putting at risk.
This is insane 👇🏿 #Coronavirus is spreading rapidly across the country. “As the coronavirus threatens to spread across the Lynchburg region, Liberty University officials are preparing to welcome back up to 5,000 students from spring break this week.”
Liberty University is going back in session. Unreal.
We all know Jerry Falwell is not pro life. He will use god to convince others to get sick and die. If you are staff, faculty, or students at Liberty DO NOT GO until your safety and right to life is protected.
As the coronavirus threatens to spread across the Lynchburg region, Liberty University officials are preparing to welcome back up to 5,000 students from spring break this week.
“I think we, in a way, are protecting the students by having them on campus together,” he (Jerry Falwell, Liberty Univ. Pres.) said. “Ninety-nine percent of them are not at the age to be at risk and they don’t have conditions that put them at risk.”
Liberty University is: - welcoming students back to campus - directing faculty to come in to work - planning to house infected students in “an old hotel”
Liberty University students...as many as 5,000 will be welcomed back to campus after spring break. President Jerry Falwell, Jr says students want to return & be with their friends. University has made allowances to comply with state
This is a level of stupidity right up there with snake handling.
“I think we have a responsibility to our students ... to enjoy the room and board they’ve already paid for.” Falwell is doing this to avoid paying refunds. Just a con man through and through. Should be in jail. Not joking. via
Liberty University is reopening. Apparently Falwell doesn't believe the news yet that Covid-19 has evolved to infect humans. (It's just, you know, a _theory_.)
Now it looks like vs everybody. How does this flip the historical script? A lil thread
Liberty University's decision to keep dorms, academic buildings, its library, and its fitness center open is a danger to staff, faculty, and students; their families; and everyone in the region.
This is a mistake. : please, please re-consider. Nothing may happen. Or you could accidentally turn Southwest Virginia into a regional outbreak zone. Why risk inviting this horror upon your community?
Liberty is going to kill people. Some values.
Good Lord! #COVIDIOTS
Jerry Falwell, Jr. is a monster and his students should sue him en masse
This is an awful mistake. risks turning Southwest Virginia into a regional outbreak zone. Please re-consider.
Liberty University’s new motto: “Give me liberty AND death.”
"students are expected to live in campus dorms, where they will continue coursework online rather than in classrooms." So they can have BOTH the thrill of remote learning AND the best possible conditions for spreading the virus! #AcademicChatter
