麻州大学共和党学生在当前政治气候下感到被排挤

特派记者 Miranda Emily Eden Senft 译成者 Alex Heroux   昨天晚上,麻州大学共和党在学生中心411召开了他们的第二次大会。 每个人进入房间都会被微笑欢迎,并且收到一本“口袋宪法”。大家在房间里互相问候,聊身边的话题,比如最近的天气怎么样,麻州大学最好的餐厅是哪一个。 因为这次的会议形式是公开讨论会,所以与会成员可以自由提出想要讨论的话题。昨晚的话题聚焦在朝鲜问题上,最后大家达成共识,认为这个问题非常复杂。 本次会议包括会议导论和一个能展示社团各种意见的活动。这个活动让大家一人说一个词描写特朗普的总统竞选,这些词从“无法预测”,“无效”,“令人泄气”到 “精彩”,“大型的”,“革命性的。” Sara Ceasrine是一名刚刚加入社团四年级的学生,她说“我觉得除了这个社团,我没法在其他地方自由讨论我的观点,这个社团是我的避难所。” Ceasrine,一名日语和比较文学双专业的学生,去年去日本交流。她说选举的时候呆在在日本“让我产生了为美日关系做贡献和发出她的共和党声音的愿望。” Carly Bishop是麻州大学共和党社团副会长, 她也是一名大二政治学的学生,她极力推崇共和党社团的口号,“大家一起来!” Bishop说:“在这里你可以听到不同的观点,这些观点在通常情况下是不会被讨论到的。” 当被问到是否能自由的表达政治观点时,Bishop说,“当然不会有人阻止我,但是我知道我的观点未必讨喜,其他人可能并不想听到。” 她表示,她在社团的目的是在想在校园里推动更多的对话。 John Maloney,社团的财务主管,大四运动管理学生,去年在新罕布什尔州John Kasich的竞选活动中工作,也在这次会议中分享了他的感受。他加入麻州大学共和党社团已经两年了,他说很享受社团的对话和气氛。 “我希望把会议变得更好玩,有意思,发人深省,我也希望可以进一步推动社团的名气。” 他也希望通过这个社团,“我们可以以得体的方式讨论有意思和争议性的话题。” Alex Gearty,麻州大学共和党社团的会长,也是一名数学专业,教育和心理学双辅修专业的学生,两年来一直担任社团的会长。她希望能把当会长时锻炼的技能比如公开演说的能力,用在未来当数学老师的工作上。 “我喜欢教育。我觉得人必须要不断学习,尤其是政治,”Gearty说,“我正在努力从各个方面教育大家,不管他们的政治派别是什么。” Gearty这个社团“向所有人开放”,为不同的意见创造对话的可能。她说她不只重视社团的外在形象,她还觉得她对社团成员负有巨大的责任。她积极推动成员间的对话,并且鼓励他们提出有建设性的不同意见。 “这个学校和国家需要人们表达自己的观点,”Gearty说,“我们跟麻州大学的民主党成员一起努力,想让大家看到我们双方都有很多不同的观点。” 今年共和党社团想要与民主党社团合作一起举办大会,促进双方的交流,提出不同的建设性意见。 会议结束的时候,社团成员被问到:“你们在学校里是否感到能安全并舒服的说出自己的政治观点?” 立刻有41人说了“不!”
