You just know some group is going to defy this ban and stage a building protest. The school is practically daring students to do it.

At both the University of Missouri and Evergreen State College, an atmosphere of aggressive “Social Justice” activism damaged enrollment and contributed to financial difficulties.

It’s hard to be shocked these days by the tactics of the anti-Trump, anti-America “resistance” and its campus lackeys, but this blatant, intentional misrepresentation of a conservative organization by leftists on campus is appalling.
