I feel that UCLA is only a safe space for liberals

Amongst the liberals (even though I myself am largely liberal) I’ve met, there has been a noticeable “agree with everything I say or you are wrong” energy, which in my opinion makes them equally as closed-minded as the Trumpies.

Supporting Biden meant I got hate (not discussion, but disgusted faces and being talked down to) from so-called friends, as did picking up a burnt American flag from the ground....my reason being that I appreciate the rights America has given me given that my parents immigrated here for me to have the life I have today. That by no stretch means that America doesn’t have several issues or that I don’t recognize America’s numerous failings. But my reasoning didn’t matter...I picked up an American flag, so I must be a Trump supporter. In fact, I’m “the reason America is fucked.”
