Conservative speakers are chased off college campuses. Communists get paid thousands to speak. And Democrats expect taxpayers to fund ‘free’ college? Not a chance.

EXCLUSIVE: ASU student government paid communist $15,000 for virtual speech
The Arizona State University Student Government paid self-proclaimed communist Angela Davis $15,000 for an event that lasted for an hour and fifteen minutes.
Davis — a former member of the Communist Party USA and a founding member of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism — spoke on February 18 at an event called “Remaining Resilient & Rejoicing in Freedom.”
A contract secured via public records request by Campus Reform reveals that Davis earned the equivalent of over $13,000 per hour after completing the forty-five minute moderated discussion and a thirty-minute question and answer period.
The USG and ASU’s Black African Coalition (BAC) co-hosted the virtual event.
The university’s event description says that Davis “has been deeply involved in our nation’s quest for social justice” — specifically, “economic, racial and gender justice.”
ASU published a statement by BAC President Aniyah Braveboy ahead of the event, outlining the motivation for inviting Davis.
“To achieve our goals, the BAC wished for Dr. Angela Davis to be our keynote speaker as she has been on the forefront of her advocacy and the epitome of a strong Black woman and Black power beginning in her teenage years,” Braveboy said.
As recently as 2016, Davis has reaffirmed her support of communism.
