WATCH: Leftist Student Loses It Over Campus Conservative Group Honoring Lives of Those Killed By Socialism

When one left-leaning communist sympathizer came across their display, she…freaked.

Easy there.

Brave is the college student who dares to criticize Marxism on a college campus in 2018.

So the members of the Santa Clara University’s Turning Point USA chapter ought to be commended for risking harassment and meltdowns of epic proportions to bring attention to the millions of lives lost due to Marxist regimes in the 20th Century.

And Harassment and meltdowns of epic proportions is exactly what they suffered.

The Blaze reports that the students had set up a table as well as placed 1,000 red flags on campus to bring awareness to the lives lost under socialist and communist governments (each flag represented 94,360 lives).

But when one left-leaning communist sympathizer came across their display, she…freaked.

The Blaze reports:

She approached the TPUSA students at the table and delivered a loud, expletive-laden rant as she tore up and ripped down their anti-socialist posters, club members told Campus Reform. A portion of the incident was caught on video.

The conservative students tried to dialogue with her. But when she was asked if she’d heard of Venezuela’s poor living conditions, the woman angrily replied, “Have you heard of Puerto Rico?”

She also appeared to attempt to slap a phone out of TPUSA chapter president Rhaaghav Kanodia’s hand and flip over the table in the direction of several TPUSA students, Campus Reform said.

Campus Reform originally received the footage of the belligerent co-ed (contains explicit language):

It is a shame that this phenominon is particularly amplified on our college campuses, where students should be taught how to hash out these differences using discourse, not violence.

These people seem to believe, rather, that speech they disagree with is violence, and respond accordingly (ironic because they’re otherwise not too concerned with one’s right to self-defense, but I digress).

Conservatives at Santa Clara University report conditions that are less-than-favorable to their views, which are, ironically, now revolutionary in a nation that once generally agreed on liberty and small government.

Kanodia told Campus Reform that “nothing really happens” when conservatives are discriminated against on campus.

In fact, the Santa Clara University Associated Student Government blocked the TPUSA chapter’s registration over complaints about the group’s conservative views, Kanodia told the outlet, adding that the TPUSA chapter had to be officially recognized by the vice provost.

Spencer McLaughlin, the chapter’s vice president, told Campus Reform that conservative students are hesitant to express their beliefs on campus, adding that many fear receiving lower grades or hostility when they share their views in the classroom.

“Liberals often say they are the ones of tolerance and diversity, but when someone puts on a pro-capitalism display, they lose their minds,” McLaughlin told the outlet.

They sure do, by the looks of it.

Businesses Should Require Vax Proof from Customers, Says NIH Director

This is simply unconscionable.

Published

There have long been fears that this sort of discrimination was on the horizon, as the willingly unvaccinated become second-class citizens right here in the United States. With only about half of the US population fully vaccinated, (and largely by their own accord), herd immunity looks to be some time away yet.  Nearly 20% more of the population will need to wind up with COVID antibodies in order for public health officials to consider the pandemic to be waning, and a maximum pressure campaign is taking shape throughout a number of levels of government. During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Dr. Frances Collins used his position as the Director of the National Institutes of Health to pressure businesses around the nation to enact strict vaccine-proof restrictions. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Some businesses are going a step further and requiring proof of vaccinations not just for employees, but even for customers in some cases. Audience members for broadway plays and musicals need to be vaccinated. Some bars in San Francisco and D.C. are requiring proof of vaccinations. Do you think as a public health measure it would be good for more businesses to require vaccine credentials in order to have vaccinated customers?” His answer was astonishing. Collins said, “As a public health person who wants to see this pandemic end, yes. I think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they’ll want to be part of these public events, that’s a good thing. I’m delighted to see employers like Disney and Walmart coming out and asking their staff to be vaccinated. I’m glad to see the president has said all federal employees. I oversee NIH. With 40,000 people need to get vaccinated or if they’re not to get regular testing which is inconvenient. All of…

Unrepentant YouTube Decides to Suspend Mainstream News Channel Over ‘Misinformation’

The barons of the Information Revolution are no less corrupt than those of the Industrial Revolution before them.

Published

There are concerns that the barons of the Information Revolution, much like the barons of the Industrial Revolution, are exploiting their content producers at an unsustainable clip, and creating a very dangerous bottleneck in the world of free speech. Given just how much of the internet’s traffic flows through just a few sites, it is imperative that we keep a keen eye on what platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are doing.  They are the new gatekeepers of nearly the entire breadth of current information, and if they were to choose to keep us in the dark on any particular issue, it would be quite easy for them to do so. That’s why the latest news from YouTube is so terrifying. YouTube said Sunday it had barred Sky News Australia from uploading new content for one week, citing concerns about Covid-19 misinformation. The move comes after a review of posts uploaded by the Rupert Murdoch-owned TV channel, which has a substantial online presence. “We have clear and established Covid-19 medical misinformation policies… to prevent the spread of Covid-19 misinformation that could cause real-world harm,” a YouTube statement said. With 1.86 million YouTube subscribers, the channel — which is owned by a subsidiary of Murdoch’s News Corp — has a conservative following well beyond Australia. The mainstream media and the mainstream social networks haven’t always gotten their COVD info right, either, which makes their declarations regarding “misinformation” all the more laughable. Early on in the pandemic, these platforms pushed back against the possibility that the virus itself may have been a part of some sort of lab leak, even going so far as to censor any such discussion.  Over a year later, and as health experts began to suggest this yes, this was truly a possibility, the premature nature of…
