Dallas Baptist U. Bans YAL Texas State Chair, Who is an Alumna, From Campus for Trying to Recruit Libertarian Students

Dallas Baptist U. Bans YAL Texas State Chair, Who is an Alumna, From Campus for Trying to Recruit Libertarian Students

“They accused me of Criminal Trespassing with zero grounds to back their case up, and sent the campus police to publically escort me from the grounds.”

This is crazy and a horrible way for a school to treat an alum.

Campus Reform reports:

Texas school bans alumna from campus after recruiting libertarian students

Dallas Baptist University (DBU) allegedly stopped Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) Texas State Chair Rebekah “Bex” David, a DBU alumnus and military veteran, from tabling and distributing flyers on campus.

According to an open letter sent to DBU by YAL Director of Student Rights JP Kirby, DBU security issued a trespassing warning against David in August when she attempted to promote YAL and banned her from campus.

David was then threatened with a criminal trespassing charge, which would result in her “immediate arrest” if she returned to DBU.

“America deserves the truth about this. They deserve to know what DBU – whose mascot is literally the ‘Patriot’ – is willing to do to those who step out of line,” David wrote in a statement to Campus Reform.

Describing her experience, David stated that she was “banned – for life – from my alma mater campus (Dallas Baptist University in Texas) because I refused to back down from my [First Amendment] rights. They accused me of Criminal Trespassing with zero grounds to back their case up, and sent the campus police to publically escort me from the grounds.”

Does this mean when the alumni association calls during their next fund raising drive, we can’t count on your donation?

I’m so old I remember when The American Social Justice League (still calling themselves The ACLU, but come on.) was about *everybody*’s rights, no matter how heinous, speech and expression, and especially protecting from entrenched authority.

I also remember when campuses were similarly host to thought divergent from The Overlords.

Oh, the sad end of becoming co-opted minions of the Authoritah. Scratch a rebel and you find someone who really just wants to be in charge themselves, it seems.

    Does that include the rights of private property owners to determine what happens on their property?

    My brother went to DBU. It is a far more Christian-centered Liberty U. I won’t defend them being such a closed campus to divergent ideas. I will defend their right to do so. It is not a civil rights issue.

What rights? She has no first amendment rights on private property.

How she was treated may be horrible, but she doesn’t help her case when she claims that “They accused me of Criminal Trespassing with zero grounds to back their case up, and sent the campus police to publically escort me from the grounds.” What does she mean “with zero grounds to back their case up”? If they had previously told her not to set foot on the campus, and she did so, that is by definition criminal trespass, so how can she say they had is “zero grounds to back their case up”?

What’s not stated is why the university ordered her not to enter its property. Maybe they had good reason. Nobody here knows, because we have not been told. Maybe it was just because she was recruiting students for YAL, but I doubt that was it. There was probably more, and I’d like to know what more before forming an opinion on the matter.

    My brother went to DBU. I went to Baylor. DBU makes Baylor look like Oberlin.

    I am betting for abortion to win, gay marriage (or adjacent issue) to place, and drug use to show as to what got her booted.
