Why should conservative American taxpayers fund higher education when things like this are so common?

Student says she faces doxxing threats after winning battle for TPUSA approval
The leader of a campus conservative group says she is facing threats of doxxing and physical harm after finally achieving official status for her student group at a Christian college in Iowa.
A Turning Point USA chapter was approved by the student senate in a 33-14 vote after years of effort to establish a chapter at Wartburg College. Chapter president and campus coordinator Emily Russell says she diligently worked for two years to gain approval for the chapter on campus. Russell says her goals in starting the chapter were to give Conservative’s more of a voice on campus.
Originally when presenting the TPUSA group 17 student senators abstained from the vote not fully allowing for fair and proper representation. This time student senators voted with ease. Instead, the difficulty came from the student life office, the Dean of Students and the Director of Student Engagement who refused to sign documents needed to move the application to the student senate.
While the decision to approve the group was made they are continuing to face hostility from other students. Since the approval Russell has been targeted on social media, including the encouragement for people to look for her address. One student tweeted, “A very sad day to be a @WartburgCollege student, where your elected peer representatives (@WartburgSenate) just voted to approve @TPUSA chapter. A vote against all just morals, ethics, & humanity. Graduation can’t come soon enough.”
