Student Journalists at Central Connecticut State U. Demand School Cancel Showing of Matt Walsh Movie

Student Journalists at Central Connecticut State U. Demand School Cancel Showing of Matt Walsh Movie

“First and foremost, this event cannot be allowed to take place on campus.”

The Turning Point USA chapter at this school is planning to show the Matt Walsh movie “What is a Woman” but these student journalists are determined to shut it down.

The College Fix reports:

Student journalists demand college cancel ‘What is a Woman’ event

Student journalists at Central Connecticut State University took on an activist role recently and demanded that administrators cancel a documentary showing and closely monitor the Turning Point USA chapter.

The Society of Professional Journalists chapter on campus signed onto a letter from the Pride Club that demanded cancellation of Walsh’s movie, “What is a Woman.” The Daily Wire documentary includes interviews with professors, transgender advocates and skeptics of the chemical and genital mutilation of people to answer the question “what is a woman?” He is not speaking on campus.

The letter, discovered by Campus Reform, stated:

First and foremost, this event cannot be allowed to take place on campus. This campus should be a safe place for all students. The event occurring on Thursday would undoubtedly be an active safety concern for any trans student who entered Devil’s Den at the time of showing, and would spark persistent harm in the form of discriminatory disinformation towards multiple communities of marginalized students.

TPUSA must be held accountable. They must also not be allowed to misrepresent this situation as an attack on free speech. Their official channels of communication should be monitored for such further disinformation and be acted upon accordingly. A culture of hate and discrimination will not cease to exist with just a single action, but with continuous efforts. If this club maintains their stance on this issue, CCSU must reconsider continuing their support for this club as a university-funded student organization.

Other clubs that signed on include the Climbing Club, the Golf Club and the Tea Club.

A nation of pants wetting snivelers.

Except the ones who don’t obey!

    And hospitals should presumably be safe spaces for prepubescent boys and girls, but it is turning out not to be.

    Whatever happened to “do no harm?”

“….and would spark persistent harm in the form of discriminatory disinformation towards multiple communities of marginalized students.”

And they get to decide what is “disinformation,” right? How about they have a public debate with Matt Walsh and see just who is spreading dis- and misinformation?

Add to this the fact that they claim to be “journalists” is de facto evidence that they will be anything but unbiased, disinterested reporters of news. They will act as judge and jury for what pablum is allowed to be distributed to the public. They are abusing the First Amendment and choking it to death.

This is the very definition of propaganda.

I am sure they will have cozy jobs at the Hartford Courant, the NYTimes etc. upon graduating.

I am reminded of a situation from my college. There was a motion in the student government for something – I cannot recall what – and I was the rep from my club. We discussed the issue at our weekly meeting, and came to a consensus that we did not agree with the issue at hand and to vote against it. After everyone left, the president came up to me and said “If it looks like it is going to pass, vote for it anyway so we are not the only club who says no.”

This was in the mid 90’s so “woke” was just getting started on campus, and I saw a LOT of what I now know is illogical feeling policy – woke. Perhaps that is why I have not encouraged my children into college track.

“First and foremost, this event cannot be allowed to take place on campus.”

“How abouuuuuuuuuut………. no?

Professional journalists fearlessly refusing to tolerate the truth.

“Everything inside the govt, nothing outside the govt” is a recipe for tyranny.

What possible stake (or right) does a climbing club or a kayaking club have to – as a group – chime in on politics?

Individually, you’re free to join a political club or just sign petitions – as an individual. If a campus club’s charter is non political – no implied or actual requirement for political heterodoxy should be imposed. Is kayaking while trans currently difficult? I don’t join a bowling league to make useless posturing gestures and tout how “enlightened” EYE am. I join to bowl. Unless Trans membership is an issue what earthly good does pretending it is do?

I used to be an AARP member, elder sis bought me one when I hit 55. I didn’t renew and asked her not to regift please. Got a mailing touting how they were officially all in on unlimited abortion on demand – including partial birth. Not a fan of inducing labor at 9 months of a viable fetus and vacuuming out the brains being legal just because the fetus is only halfway out of the birth canal. Statistically, almost no one is for that outlier on the abortion yes/no spectrum.

But AARP is. Why, because their (biologically born female) membership has to worry about losing a right they physically can no longer employ or require? I don’t want AARP to come out in support of ANY abortion views, my own nor any other.

You want your kayaking club / bowling league / gaming group / seniors discount club to GroupThink only the way you think? Start one up with that in the charter.
