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.

MERCEDES MYSTERY: Luxury Auto Maker Doesn’t Know Where Kim Jong Un’s Cars Came From

Kim Jong Un and his cronies are notorious for shady, sanction-skirting antics, and Daimler is sounding the alarm on yet another possible infraction.

When it comes to North Korea, clandestine behavior is nothing new, but as Kim Jong Un makes some new friends, we must keep a careful eye on even the most mundane of maneuvers. The notoriously secretive hermit kingdom has long been on the outside of the global community looking in.  They have their reasons for this, of course, as seen through the overwhelming evidence of their plethora of human rights abuses repeated attempts to skirt international sanctions placed upon them. To make matters worse, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has been cozying up to Russian President Vladimir Putin in recent weeks – a man whose government has been attempting to meddle in international affairs for decades. Mercedes Benz’s parent company has now added to suspicions by telling the world that they have no earthly idea where Kim got his luxury automobiles from. Kim has raised eyebrows by using Daimler-branded stretch limousines at several very high-profile summits, including his meeting this week with Russian President Vladimir Putin and both of his earlier summits with President Donald Trump. Kim’s first trip to Russia came about two months after his second summit with President Donald Trump failed because of disputes over U.S.-led sanctions on the North. The sale of luxury goods, including limousines, is banned under U. N. sanctions intended to put pressure on North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons. Kim’s two limos were noted upon when he arrived at Vladivostok station — a Mercedes Maybach S600 Pullman Guard and a Mercedes Maybach S62. He is believed to have also used the S600 Pullman Guard for his summits with Trump in Singapore in June last year and in Hanoi in February. The vehicles likely cost more than $1 million each when they were purchased, according to Business Insider. Company spokespeople were openly bewildered.…

George Conway Sets Twitter Ablaze with Ridiculous Trump Nickname

George Conway is at it again, and this time he’s using the 5th grade tactic of name-calling.

By week’s end, the President was facing opposition from nearly all ends of the political spectrum, as controversies continue to swirl around his first term. For many democrats, the redacted version of the Mueller report was inadequate, and not because of the redactions themselves.  Instead, concerns over Robert Mueller’s lengthy outlining of possible obstruction of justice infractions has caught their eye, seeing this new avenue of thought as a possible catalyst for nullifying the will of the people in the 2016 election. Naturally, this has led to a bevy of information requests, subpoenas, and threats from the left side of the aisle, aimed directly at the White House. For their part, the Trump administration is doing everything in their power to move on, and get back to the business of governing our fine nation.  Trump has even commanded his subordinates to simply ignore Congressional subpoenas – something that puts those working for the President between a rock and a hard place. The strife isn’t only coming from Congress, however, as the husband of one of the President’s most trusted advisers weighs in as well, resorting to name-calling late in the week. George Conway, husband to White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, went off on a Twitter rant Thursday morning attacking President Donald Trump, bestowing him with a new nickname: “Deranged Donald”. The conservative lawyer — and high-profile Trump critic — was set off by a report that the president promoted a baseless accusation that the United Kingdom helped the Obama administration spy on his campaign — just one day after accepting an invitation for a state visit to Britain from Queen Elizabeth II. “Deranged Donald is at back at it again,” Conway wrote. “Deranged Donald can do things like this and it’s not even the top of the news, because it…
