Student Govt. at Northwestern Passes Resolution to Remove Conservative From Presidential Search Committee

“The resolution passed 17-1 with one nay vote coming from the College Republicans Senator, David Grow.”

This is a reminder that progressives do not want to have debates with conservatives, They just want conservatives out of the picture.

From the YAF blog:

Northwestern Student Government Passes Resolution to Remove Conservative from Presidential Search Committee

The Northwestern University student government passed a resolution for the recusal of a conservative from the university’s Presidential Search Committee, solely for being conservative.

Authors of the resolution list preposterous reasons for J. Landis Martin’s recusal, including accusing Martin’s $30,000 donation to President Trump in 2016 of harming minority students, and that “the conservative political ideology of Trump, including those that support him, do not align with the views of the average Northwestern undergraduate.”

Additionally, the students are critical of Martin’s career as a member of the board of directors of Halliburton, a prominent oil services and construction firm.

Leftist NU students started criticizing the chairman of the university’s Board of Trustees, Landis Martin, as early as August 2017 in an article in The Daily Northwestern. They mention that he also financially contributed to several conservative candidates in the 2016 presidential primary such as Lindsay Graham, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Jeb Bush.

The resolution for Martin’s recusal was co-authored by Jo Scaletty, a former Rainbow Alliance Senator and a Justice and Inclusion committee member, who was quoted in The Daily Northwestern saying that “Martin’s financial support of Trump harms marginalized students.”

The resolution passed 17-1 with one nay vote coming from the College Republicans Senator, David Grow. He opposed the resolution and stated that “the legislation does not account for Republicans on campus.”

The resolution sponsors demand that Martin’s position not be filled, and if it must, that it be filled by the recommendation of the ASG Executive Board.

The key fact not reported above is that in June 2917, J Landis Martin was elected as Chair of Northwestern’s Board of Trustees. So, in effect, Martin will be the boss of whomever the search committee selects. It is very common for the Chair of the Board of Trustees to serve on a University President Search Committee.

“In 2013, the Martins made a $10 million unrestricted gift to the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, providing funding for the Law School to implement innovative strategies for improving legal education and enhancing the student experience.

“The Martins also serve on the Athletics and Recreation Campaign Committee as well as the Colorado Regional Campaign Committee. Lanny and Sharon Martin Stadium, the renovated soccer and lacrosse field, was dedicated in September 2016. The stadium is named in honor of the Martins in recognition of their $15 million gift to support Northwestern Athletics and Recreation.” Northwestern explained.

So just replace him with the Solyndra dude.
“Accelerationists, Assemble!”

“…College Republicans Senator, David Grow. He opposed the resolution and stated that “the legislation does not account for Republicans on campus.”

What? No “oppresses and existentially physically threatens the very lives of every single member and ally of our constituency?” If you want the droogs to pay attention to anything you say, you better step up your game, Mayonnaise.
