Conservative Pundit Ben Shaprio’s Upcoming Lecture At Christian University Causing Controversy

Sigh.

Published

on

Students who attend Baylor University in Waco, Texas are not at all happy that conservative pundit and Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro is set to give a lecture on campus.

Shapiro was tapped to host Baylor Young Americans for Freedom on November 21. The event is part of the Young Americans for Freedom’s Fred Allen lecture series.

A group of students have taken time to speak out against Shapiro’s lecture, some with mild annoyance it’s taking place, while others feel a lot more strongly about the whole thing.

According to The College Fix, some students simply complained, while others suggested more intense means of disrupting the planned speech, such as burning down the school.

One student wrote in a since-deleted tweet, “Ben Shapiro is coming November 21st to speak at Baylor… should I burn down my school now or later?”

Another added, “[B]en shapiro is coming to baylor and i literally cannot believe i am giving these people so much money in tuition.”

Back in April of this year, controversial speaker Matt Walsh, who is also a contributor for the Daily Wire, also faced backlash from a similar group of individuals who attend the university.

Walsh appeared on campus to discuss Christian values and how they pertain to the sanctity of life, marriage, and gender. A petition was started to protest Walsh’s lecture and received more than 2,3000 signatures.

Here’s a snippet of what the petition said:

“This cannot be allowed to take place. Please remove this from campus events. For the benefit of all LGBTQ+ students, alumni, and future students, this harmful hate speech must be kept off of our beloved campus.”

Walsh made an appearance on “Fox & Friends” where he responded with the following:

“We know the situation on college campuses, where often times opposing viewpoints are not welcome and students don’t know how to deal with someone presenting a point of view that’s foreign to them.”

Al Sharpton’s Failed 2004 Campaign For President Is Still Close To $1M In Debt

Published

on

Rev. Al Sharpton once ran for president — hilarious, right? — back in 2004 and his presidential campaign was a complete and total disaster. How much of a disaster was it? Well, it’s been fifteen years since he ran the campaign and it’s still $900,000 in debt. Of course, Sharpton also hasn’t paid off his massive tax debts in a very long time, so perhaps the notion that this particular race baiting individual doesn’t pay his bills isn’t all that surprising. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “I have asked Andrew Rivera, the finance chair of my 2004 campaign, to set up a meeting with the Federal Election Commission so that I can resolve any campaign debts related to Sharpton 2004,” Sharpton told the New York Post over the weekend. “I am willing to work out a settlement for all claims with my own money to the degree that I’m allowed and will raise money directly.” He added, “Even if I am not legally liable for it, I am certainly morally responsible.” Sharpton is not personally on the hook for the money 15 years later. Instead, it’s his campaign committee and specifically his campaign treasurer, Andrew Rivera, who are responsible. Jerri Ann Henry, a consultant with an extensive work history with campaigns and PACS said, “It does reflect poorly on the people at the helm. I have worked for candidates who I know have taken great pains to make sure staff and consultants are taken care of. Frankly, almost a million dollars, that’s a lot of money. Today’s campaigns spend at that level all the time, but that is very significant coming all the way back in 2004.” This isn’t the first time Sharpton’s campaign has run into trouble. He also ran into some problems with the Federal Election…

Bloomberg Claim Of Being Able To ‘Teach Anybody To Be A Farmer’ Resurfaces; It’s Slammed As Being ‘Embarrassingly Ignorant’

Published

on

Democratic presidential candidate and former mayor Michael Bloomberg has been getting raked over the coals for the last few weeks as more and more video footage continues to be unearthed of him saying rather unsavory things that seem to be turning off leftist voters everywhere. First, it was video of him saying rather racist things concerning the Stop and Frisk policy in New York City, then comments about women popped up, then statements about allowing elderly people with cancer to die, and now a comment about him being able to teach anyone to be a farmer. This guy was obviously delusional to even consider a run for president with this kind of stuff in his closet. No amount of campaign spending for commercials is going to save him now. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: A clip of Bloomberg lecturing at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School in 2016 resurfaced over the weekend and sparked outrage from the Left and the Right on Twitter. In the footage, the former New York City mayor said that people need more “gray matter” to do the technological jobs of the Information Age than those in agrarian or industrial societies. “The agrarian society lasted 3,000 years,” he said. “I could teach anybody … to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, you add water, up comes the corn. “Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow, and you can have a job,” Bloomberg continued. The now-presidential candidate went on to distinguish the “information economy” from all preceding time periods. “The information economy is fundamentally different because it’s built around replacing people with…
