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.”

Barr Labels Seattle, New York City, And Portland As ‘Anarchist Jurisdictions’

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr has come out and labeled the cities of New York, Seattle, and Portland as “anarchist jurisdictions,” stating they have “permitted violence and destruction of property to persist,” after the president signed an executive order to limit federal funds sent to these places in the U.S. The announcement came via the Justice Department on Monday morning, saying the leadership in these three cities “have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities” for months now following the death of George Floyd, which led to an explosion in violent protests, riots, and looting. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said Monday. “We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.” Trump’s early September memorandum stated that “it is the policy and purpose of the United States Government to protect the lives and property of all people in the United States from unlawful acts of violence and destruction” and that “without law and order, democracy cannot function.” The president said that “anarchy has recently beset some of our States and cities” and claimed that “for the past few months, several State and local governments have contributed to the violence and destruction in their jurisdictions by failing to enforce the law, disempowering and significantly defunding their police departments, and refusing to accept offers of Federal law enforcement assistance.” He…

Tom Cotton Weighs In On Filling RGB Seat: Democrats Who Voted For Kavanaugh Won Reelection; Those That Didn’t, Lost

Published

Sen. Tom Cotton made a very good argument for why Democrats should vote in favor of filling the SCOTUS seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by pointing out that those Democrats who supported Kavanaugh got reelected, while those that voted against him didn’t. This is a great strategy. What most Democrats want more than anything is to do maintain power and stay in office so they can get paid to do nothing, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to do so. Cotton knows that, hence, bringing up this very valid point. via The Daily Wire: “In 2014, the American people elected a Republican majority to the Senate to put the brakes on President Obama’s judicial nominations,” Cotton said during an interview on Fox News. “In 2018, we had a referendum on this question, just a month before the 2018 midterms. We had the vote on Justice Kavanaugh. There could not have been a clearer mandate because the American people didn’t just re-elect Republicans, they expanded our majority. They defeated four Democratic senators who voted against Justice Kavanaugh. They re-elected the one Democratic senator who did vote for Justice Kavanaugh.” “So we have a clear mandate to perform our constitutional duty. That’s what the Senate majority will do now. That’s what we did back in 2016 as well,” Cotton continued. “The Senate majority is performing our constitutional duty and fulfilling the mandate that the voters gave us in 2016 and especially in 2018.” Cotton later added that people should not “discount Democratic votes either” in the upcoming hearings after President Donald Trump announces who he is nominating to the nation’s highest court. https://youtu.be/0N2I3GVO_q4 We absolutely need to make sure that a true, pro-life, conservative appointee is confirmed and placed on the Supreme Court, as…
