University Rejects Student Demands to Ban Conservative ‘Hate Groups’

“hate groups that have been popping up on college/university campuses all over Pennsylvania”

The left doesn’t want to have a discussion. In their minds, they’re right and everyone else is wrong.

Campus Reform reports:

University rejects demand to ban conservative ‘hate groups’

Indiana University of Pennsylvania is refusing to ban conservative “hate groups,” which students demanded last month during a series of protests at universities across the state.

As reported by Campus Reform, the Pennsylvania Student Power Network rallied students at 21 campuses across the state to demand that their institutions defund and denounce “hate groups” such as Turning Point USA and the pro-Trump “Bull Moose Party” at Pennsylvania State University.

Unlike the protests at Penn State, which took place outside an administrative building, the Power Network protested a TPUSA-hosted event featuring Charlie Kirk at IUP.

One protester, Rieko Copeland, went to Facebook and suggested that TPUSA is a white supremacist group.

“Each day of action is different, but this one will specifically target white supremacy hate groups that have been popping up on college/university campuses all over Pennsylvania,” said Copeland. “More specifically, IUP’s campus has been the breeding ground to one of the largest government and campus funded hate groups, Turning Point USA.”

Copeland further alleged that TPUSA attracts “avowed white nationalists” to campus, citing a speaking event with Charlie Kirk hosted by TPUSA on April 9, the same day as the Power Network protests.

Michael Driscoll, the president of IUP, released a statement last week stating that he had met with representatives of the Pennsylvania Student Power Network, but will not be agreeing to their demands.

From the TPUSA website: “Turning Point USA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded on June 5, 2012 by Charlie Kirk. The organization’s mission is to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government.”

I guess I lost my decoder ring because I’m not seeing the hate here.

    “…to promote the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government.”

    It’s anti-socialism therefore against socialists which makes it hate speech that make them search out the nearest safe space to cry in.

Best job I ever had was working for a guy who thought my work was substandard (which it was until I finally got up to speed). For the entire first year I worked for him he only called me “Douche bag”. I never thought much about it when it was happening, but I would assume the snowflakes today would die right there on the spot if that happened to them.

Out here in the real world we have these quaint behaviors called respect, tolerance, humor, and so forth. When people speak we respectfully keep quiet, actually listen to the words they speak, and then think about what they said to determine if they are important, if we agree with them, and so forth. They have the right to say what they want and we have the right to disagree and walk away. It’s a good relationship.

Why is it that these children think they have the right to speak while others do not and why do they not understand that they can respectfully disagree and walk away without getting all spun up over a few words? Who were their parents to teach these children such disrespect and selfishness?

“this one will specifically target white supremacy hate groups that have been popping up on college/university campuses all over Pennsylvania”

Regardless of the racial make-up of the groups opposing TPUSA and MBP … there is no denying that their positions and message are supremacist … they want to force other people to submit to their will and live by their leave. They’re just as bad as what they imagine they’re railing against … but they’ll never understand it.
