Shapiro Appearance Kicks Off Free Speech Fight at Gonzaga

The left’s blatant disregard for the First Amendment is staggering.

In the traditional sense, going off to college was intended to be an experience where young people could expand their minds, and get a better look at the world around them before embarking off into the unknown.

The growth that was originally intended to occur in higher education was not just intellectual growth, but an overall boost to the maturity of the individual.  The common separation from the home unit, combined with the worldliness of a diverse campus can be a shock to the sense at times, sure.  This is why we see so many of these “snowflake” stereotypes, as our most coddled generations began to integrate with the world around them.

These kids were never taught to deal with their hurt feelings from a young age, always blaming the offender for the emotions of the offended.  It set you up for the false idea of a world where everything is fair and fine, and when these fragile egos reach college, they are metaphorically maimed by the counter culture of reality.

Now, thanks to the influx of the coddled generation in question, colleges are becoming safer, and less likely to produce profound moments of self-education.  Take Gonzaga, for instance, where the proposed appearance of political pundit Ben Shapiro has the university toeing the line between the First Amendment and authoritarianism.

This week, a letter from 20 Washington State legislators was delivered to the president of Gonzaga University in which the lawmakers ripped the university for barring Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro from speaking on campus.

As reported by Young America’s Foundation, which sponsors Shapiro’s speaking tour that would appear at the university, Rep. Luanne Van Werven, the ranking conservative on the House Higher Education Committee, stated bluntly:

We are greatly disappointed in the university’s decision. Campuses should be places of rigorous, free debate that respects the marketplace of ideas. While Gonzaga University is a private institution, students are eligible for state financial aid. State taxpayer dollars should not be used to promote censorship.

This is certainly not the first time that the college campus has been a battleground for the First Amendment.

Most notably were the riots at UC Berkeley in February of 2017, when liberal students lashed out violently in order to force the cancelation of a scheduled speech by gay conservative author Milo Yiannopolous.

Save conservative media!

Trump Set to Declassify Obamagate Docs, Will Show Obama Spying on Trump Campaign

Had to be done.

Donald Trump accomplished more in one term than anybody thought possible. He managed to make even many “never Trump” Republicans see the light, with the way he went about business in the Oval Office. Unfortunately, Trump will not be able to serve a consecutive term and continue to expose government malfeasance. That being said, there’s still a whole lot POTUS can give us before leaving 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on the 20th.

Joe is quite the card, even after all these decades. WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

School Featured In ‘Remember the Titans’ Might Be Renamed ‘Kamala Harris High’

Great movie, terrible idea.

Giving Kamala Harris the title of vice president is pretty awful. Senator was bad enough. But now she’s going to be honored with her name on a school? What’s next? Forget Harriet Tubman and put the woman who slept her way into politics on the $20? From TDW: T.C. Williams High School, well known for its prominent role in the popular Disney film “Remember The Titans”, could soon be renamed as “Kamala Harris High School.” In November, the Alexandria City School Board voted unanimously to remove Williams’ name due to his support of segregation while serving as superintendent of the Alexandria, VA, school system. According to the school, Williams was a “staunch segregationist whose views could not have been more inconsistent with the vibrant, diverse and inclusive place we know today.” Students are being given the chance to vote. The final decision will be made in April. Other options the kids have to choose from are “George Floyd High School” and “Ruth Bader Ginsburg High School.” If it came down to Kamala, George, or Ruth, you’d have to go with RBG High…right?? Here’s a clip from the film… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYp94Kk8AdE
