“a violation of the university’s values”
There are plenty of companies which embrace the values of the left, but we never hear about them being punished in this way.

Faculty votes to remove Chick-fil-A from campus after 25 years
The faculty senate at a public California university voted overwhelmingly to kick Chick-fil-A off that campus, citing the chain’s purported support of “anti-LGBT causes” as a violation of the university’s values.
The academic senate at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo “opted to recommend getting rid of the chicken chain’s location despite its 25-year tenure on campus,” The San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The faculty justified this decision by “pointing to Chick-fil-A Foundation’s history of donating to anti-LGBT causes, noting that its values are not consistent with those of the university.” The “anti-LGBT causes” to which Chick-fil-A has donated in the past largely consist of organizations that support traditional Christian sexual orthodoxy.
The vice chair of the academic senate justified the vote by drawing an astonishing comparison between the fast-food chain and sexually explicit media.
“We don’t sell pornography in the bookstore and we don’t have a Hooters on campus — we already pre-select those kind of things based on our existing values,” Thomas Gutierrez said, according to The Chronicle.
“This is a similar thing, the difference is we’re actually profiting from this. So our money, every dollar a student is spending at Chick-Fil-A, is going to these causes that are in violation of our values.”
