College Blocks Conservative Group for Anti-Communist Stance

College Blocks Conservative Group for Anti-Communist Stance

Wait, what?

This school is blocking the creation of a new chapter of Young Americans for Freedom because they oppose communism.

Is this real life?

The Daily Caller reports:

College Conservative Group Blocked Due To Anti-Communist Position

A Baptist college in Alabama has blocked the formation of a Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapter, in part because the group’s founding document is too aggressively anti-communist.

Students at Samford University have been petitioning to have their new YAF chapter recognized by the school, but found their statement of purpose is an obstacle to recognition.

YAF’s founding document is based on the Sharon Statement, a declaration of conservative principles adopted by 100 young conservatives in 1960 during a meeting at the home of William F. Buckley. The statement notably takes an extremely hostile posture towards communism, in tune with its creation at the height of the Cold War.

“The forces of international Communism are, at present, the greatest single threat to [American] liberties[, and] the United States should stress victory over, rather than coexistence with, this menace,” the statement says.

The Baptists apparently aren’t what they used to be…

For a lot of people on the political left, eulogizing an authoritarian despot is totally normal, while standing up for the only functional system of economics is pseudo-fascist.
