Conservative Student Group at U. Wyoming Defunded for Hosting Dennis Prager

“a student government diversity leader had vowed to work “tirelessly” to shut it down”

I can’t recall a single instance of a left wing student group being defunded for featuring a left wing speaker. This is not fair.

The College Fix reports:

Conservative campus group defunded after hosting Dennis Prager

A conservative campus group at the University of Wyoming has had its ability to receive funding from its school coffers yanked just weeks after hosting conservative pundit Dennis Prager.

The group, Turning Point USA, was accused by the student government’s finance committee of not following campus policy in hosting the Nov. 9 event and has since been suspended from requesting funding until 2019, the Branding Iron campus newspaper reports.

The pro-capitalism student group was accused largely of minor procedural infractions: not properly labeling its posters, not using an approved ticketing method for the event, and “providing food unauthorized by UW Risk Management,” the Iron reports.

While student campus leaders blamed procedural errors for their crackdown, it’s clear the event was highly controversial and prompted protests as left-leaning students were upset their student fees supported a conservative speaker.

Even prior to Prager’s speech, titled “Socialism Makes People Selfish,” a student government diversity leader had vowed to work “tirelessly” to shut it down.

Hunter McFarland, director of diversity for the university’s student government, had told The College Fix she wanted Prager’s talk to be canceled because he “is an anti-academic, rape advocate who spews hate speech against Muslims, Black people, Latinas, and many other groups who deserve to be protected at the University of Wyoming.”

This is what regulations are for: So they can be selectively enforced against people you don’t like.

Rape Advocate?? What is wrong with these people?

Mr. Prager is one of the most decent people to walk this Earth, and he deserves much more respect than this trashy slander.

So sick and tired of worthless SJWs.

Sue them.

The lead on this is correct.
The leftist student body and their adviser worked hard to get
Dennis Prager shut down.
Go to the 40:00 min mark and hear Dennis Prager
address the President of WSU on the invitation to speak
It is not about his not speaking there, but the fact there are still some college presidents willing to stand up and speak out despite the left SJW’s
