Liberty University Allows Students to Miss Class to Support Kavanaugh
“We’re going to send buses for 150 more.”
This is basically a response to Yale, which is allowing students to miss class to protest Kavanaugh.

Liberty University President Gives Okay for 300 Students to Support Kavanaugh Amidst Yale Protesters
Liberty University is allowing up to 300 students to miss classes Thursday in order to give Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh support in Washington, D.C., and counter Yale University protesters.
“If you want to be excused from classes tomorrow, go to Washington and counter what the Yale students are doing, [and] support Judge Kavanaugh, we’ve got 300 spots for you,” Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. said at the school’s convocation Wednesday, according to a Facebook video posted by Liberty.
Falwell made the announcement after Liberty University alumnus and head of Concerned Women for America (CWA) Penny Nance offered to pay for 150 students to go and support Kavanaugh.
“We agreed to match that,” Falwell said. “We’re going to send buses for 150 more.”
CWA, a public policy women’s organization, will be holding an “I Stand With Brett” rally on Capitol Hill from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., according to a press release.
“Senate Democrats continue to use dirty tricks, threats, and lies to smear a decent man and delay the process of confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Nance said, the media advisory stated. “Enough is enough!”
