College Students Receive Death Threats After Border Wall Rally

Despite the efforts at dissuasion, these young republicans were overly optimistic in the early hours of the day.

The state of our nation’s political discourse is turning disturbing before our very eyes, and the victims of this rage are growing younger by the day.

This country was built on the principles of freedom, with one of the most poignant freedoms we have being the right to express ourselves how we see fit, barring only, of course, inciting of violence and hate speech.

The Founding Fathers knew that, by allowing us this open dialogue, we would be better suited to solve the problems that our rabble rousing nation would face.

What these iconic Americans never expected was that this liberty-laden nation would be torn apart by the ruling class, divided directly down the middle, and then soaked in figurative gasoline by the absurdists in the mainstream media.

Now, in spite of the freedom to express themselves being explicit in our nation, college-aged republicans are receiving death threats from their fellow Americans.

A group of conservative students at SUNY Oswego who hosted a “Build The Wall” campus display Tuesday were hit with a barrage of violent messages on social media that included slurs, expletives — and even death threats that talked about shooting, jumping and greasing them.

The reaction to the Young Americans for Freedom display was so intense that campus officials denounced the messages, launched a police investigation, and reminded students about free speech rights.

Tyler Toomey, chairman of the YAF chapter at the New York-based public university, said his group is working with campus police to hold those who sent the messages accountable.

“Threats of violence against students should not be tolerated regardless of their political view. We are disgusted that our peers are threatening violence against members of our organization,” Toomey told The College Fix via email Wednesday.

Despite the efforts at dissuasion, these young republicans were overly optimistic in the early hours of the day.

“We had several great discussions with passing by students and we were only treated to dirty looks in terms of negativity at the table,” Toomey said. “After the event, social media blew up into a storm of bullying harassment and then turned to violent threats of shooting, jumping, and ‘greasing’ our members. To make matters worse, soon after, these offenders targeted our direct messages with their threats of violence.”

Once again, we should be implored to remember that diversity of thought is what makes our country incredibly strong.  We must allow every American to share their beliefs, unfettered save for the hate speech, in order to push forward into the 21st century.

Save conservative media!

Winning the New Civil War (OPINION)

An excellent opinion piece…

Published

on

The American Civil War of 1861-65 is considered the first “modern” war. Both sides used advances in communications and military technology that resulted in 600,000 deaths. Now, more than 150 years later, Americans are engaged in a new civil war. This time it is not a war of armies and weapons and regional animosity—it is a war of visions. Liberals and conservatives each have a different vision for the future of the nation. Conservatives believe in the Constitution and the rule of law. The vision of “progressive” liberals is an authoritarian socialist nation run by unaccountable bureaucrats—an approximation of Venezuela, somewhere between Stalin’s Soviet Union and Orwell’s 1984. The conflict over these value systems has escalated into the new civil war. We have many strong indications that this is a hot war: the depredations of Antifa, a contemporary incarnation of Nazi brown shirts; Maxine Waters urging liberals to confront Trump supporters; mobs threatening the homes of prominent conservatives; the attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh; and the attempted impeachment of President Trump by partisan Democrats in the House. The war began when Barack Obama was elected president. After promising just the opposite, the Obama presidency played into the leftist strategy of “divide and conquer.” The fraud known as identity politics was a child of the Obama years. Using their perverted version of “diversity,” the Democratic Party—under the leadership of Obama—exploited discontented elements in American society to foment division and hatred. Obama’s comments in case after case—lies and distortions—stoked the fires of racial discord. After eight years of Obama, relations between conservatives and liberals were worse than ever and the country was plunged into darkness. This new civil war is much more intimate than the old one. Instead of North pitted against South, we have friend against friend, neighbor against neighbor, brother…

Congress to Take Action Against ABC News for Covering Up Epstein Story [Developing]

Is the GOP growing a spine?

Here’s something you probably didn’t expect to see today. It could potentially be great news for America, too! Apparently, Congressional Republicans have finally grown a spine and have decided to do something about corruption within the mainstream media. At the very least, it could be a solid start. There’s no reason ABC News should’ve covered-up a bombshell story they had on Jeffrey Epstein years ago. But they did it. Why? Because disgraced former President Bill Clinton was involved? Hmm… There’s also no reason for uninformed Americans to remain uninformed Americans. But if ABC and all other left-leaning outlets continue to hide the truth and bury the facts, then Democrats will continue to win elections. And who is that helping, exactly? From ABC News: Megyn Kelly reported on Sunday night that House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has contacted the president of ABC News and is demanding that the network answer questions about why it killed a bombshell story three years ago on convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein that involved former Democratic President Bill Clinton. The news comes after James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exclusively reported last month on leaked video footage from inside ABC News that showed anchor Amy Robach admitting that the network had the scandal on Epstein three years ago but that the network spiked it. “Then the Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about #PrinceAndrew…threatened us in a million different ways. We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will…That also quashed the story.” – @arobach #EpsteinCoverup https://twitter.com/JamesOKeefeIII/status/1195741556390666242?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1195741556390666242&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ffeminist-chrissy-teigen-calls-republican-rep-elise-stefanik-trash All signs pointed to Epstein being murdered in his jail cell. The writing was on the wall. Everyone could see it. Someone more powerful than he needed to make sure he kept his mouth shut and didn’t sing. It’s that simple. A…
