Student loses government position for going on Fox News
At a recent student government meeting at the University of Texas at Austin, conservative student Sterling Mosley, who was nominated for a position on the student government, was called out by a leftist member and ultimately not approved to the position due to his personal political beliefs.
Mosley, a junior who is also a Campus Reform correspondent, had been nominated by a committee of student government members to be a university-wide representative. The members of the student senate were to vote at the end of the meeting to appoint Mosley to that position.
Campus Reform obtained audio from the official student government meeting.
After his nomination was announced, Representative Amanda Garcia, a community advocate coordinator in the student senate, provided a video in the Zoom meeting she found about Mosley’s recent appearance on Fox News.
In the interview, on behalf of Campus Reform, Mosley talked with Fox and Friends about the controversy regarding the school’s fight song, “The Eyes of Texas.”
Garcia expressed concern about Mosely’s opinions and stated, “He claims that ‘The Eyes of Texas’ does not have a racist backstory despite himself being a White man so not necessarily having like the right to talk about that.”
When questioned by another student representative about if she had any more information on Mosley, Garcia said that Moseley was a member of the Young Conservatives of Texas and “a right-wing news source.”
Garcia continued on, noting “I know this is student government so we’re not supposed to get political or have political beliefs but if there’s an article of him on Fox News talking about and silencing the voices of marginalized students on campus trying to speak out against the racist song that is Eyes of Texas, I think that is not necessarily someone who is going to be responsibly representing people at UT.”
