Seeking young leaders to build College Federalists

Published

on

One of the first and most important strategic points we discussed when first forming the Federalist Party was building it with the future firmly in mind. Our political world has been dominated by the “old guard” for many decades. We knew we’d need to “play the game” in order to grow, but we also wanted to make sure we looked ahead.

It’s more than that, though. Between connectivity made available to Americans through the internet and the growing angst among young adults, “millennials” are no longer satisfied with waiting. They can have a voice. They can make an impact. They can participate today.

Unfortunately, much of the angst and empowerment have been focused in the wrong direction. We see it everyday with stories about students and faculty attacking rather than promoting our freedoms. Despite a vibrant millennial population of small-government-minded people, concepts such as “safe spaces,” socialism, and selectively free speech are running rampant.

We need the tenets of Federalism to have a voice on campuses across the nation.

It’s time for action.

This month, we will be launching the formation committee for College Federalists. If you appreciate the philosophies of small-government Federalism and are in college, soon to be attending, or recently graduated, we want to talk to you. This will be an organization that is partnered with the Federalist Party, but it will be its own standalone entity operated and powered by YOU.

Videos show conservative beaten on UC Berkeley campus Please help identify the assaulter

Being conservative on college campuses in America can be challenging. It seems that conservatism is more than just a challenge at UC Berkeley. It can be downright dangerous.

Editor’s Note: The videos released publicly do not show all of the events that transpired before the alleged assault. Just as we called for judgment to be held when the initial Covington Catholic School videos were released, so too do we believe we shouldn’t jump to absolute conclusions until law enforcement releases official information. With that said, yes, these videos are pretty darn compelling against the perpetrator.

Brad Devlin, former President of Berkeley College Republicans, posted a series of Tweets that seem to detail the events surrounding the alleged assault as well as video of the assault itself. There’s also an image of the alleged perpetrator. Calls have been made by officials and those associated with the victim to help identify him.

If this turns out to be an accurate depiction of events, one can easily see this as a hate crime.

The unhinged nature of extremists leads to the level of hatred that gives us incidents like these. While they happen from both sides of the political aisle, it seems as if the left has been growing increasingly violent in recent months.

Differences in political opinion shouldn’t lead to violence.

This story is developing. We will update as more information comes in. Campus Reform is also covering this closely as the victim was closely associated with them.

VIDEO: Conservative suffers blow to the face at Berkeley

https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11898In other footage obtained by Campus Reform, another person, also unidentified, approached the students, claiming they were “encouraging violence.” Williams told Campus Reform that as the physical confrontations took place, a number of onlookers simply watched.“Some students nearby tabling were laughing, even one guy was smiling while I was being attacked and trying to hand me his flyer as a joke,” the alleged victim said. “The idea is free speech has consequences…. which include you getting assaulted if they find you promoting ideas others don’t agree with.”A student who asked to remain anonymous and was at the scene after the alleged victim got punched said someone also tore apart their signs.“As I approached the table I could see our TPUSA pins all over the floor, our signs were torn apart, Hayden’s eye was red, and his nose was bleeding,” the student told Campus Reform.Dan Mogulof, assistant vice chancellor for the Office of Communications and Public Affairs for UC-Berkeley told Campus Reform that while he has not seen confirmation of the assault, he condemns the behavior.

How do you trigger certain college students? Just be a conservative on campus and you may get attacked. Share the image of this guy and help find him before he assaults someone else.

Syracuse University: ‘Requiring students to agree in the superiority of the U.S. Constitution is exclusionary’

Syracuse University Requiring students to agree in the superiority of the US Constitution is exclusi

Just when you thought the leftist mentality cultivated in America’s universities had reached peak lunacy, Syracuse decided to up the ante. Now, belief that the United States Constitution is the supreme governing document of the land, which it is, makes an organization like YAF unacceptable as an official campus group.

My Take

I wish I could keep this short and sweet, but apparently many on the left in general and in our education system in particular need a more direct explanation of how things work in America (at least how they SHOULD work).

There are many privileges given to and exceptions made for foreign students studying in the United States. It’s understandable that these exceptions could be extended to groups, but the way Syracuse is handling the situation is completely illogical for three very basic reasons.

First, this is a group, not a requirement. If it’s Syracuse’s intention that every group on campus must be inclusive to every student on campus, then there’s no reason to have groups in the first place. Students who want to join YAF, whether they’re Americans or not, should be able to do so just as other groups that are even more “exclusionary” can be joined by pretty much anyone who wants to.

Second, the Constitution is factually the supreme document of the land. It’s ridiculous to say otherwise, especially when the entity saying it happens to offer courses in government, history, and political science.

Lastly, this is a farce. This has absolutely nothing to do with the Constitution and everything to do with a university bent on maintaining the progressive utopia they feel they’ve established. When students are forced to keep their conservative views to themselves and prevented from gathering as a group simply because of their beliefs, it’s no longer the type of educational environment that fosters actual thoughts.

Debate is good. Censorship is not. Syracuse apparently lost track of these facts.

As we’ve posted before, they aren’t worried necessarily about freedom of speech. They’re worried about freedom of thought. If students are allowed to think for themselves, some of them invariably will come to conclusions that run contrary to the groupthink American universities attempt to foster.

The left will continue to pull whatever stunts they think they can get away with in an effort to stifle conservative voices on campus. It’s time to call them out for their hypocrisy. Thank you Campus Reform and Emma Meshell for exposing Syracuse.

George Washington University students triggered by their mascot

George Washington University students triggered by their mascot

George Washington University is the home of the Colonials. You know, those people who came to America from Europe and eventually fought against the oppressive government of England in order to win independence for America. These heroes of the American Revolution are now being condemned by the students of George Washington University itself.

While the movement and attached petition haven’t reached a tipping point, the idea of changing the mascot to the “Hippo” is gaining momentum. Why? Well, we’ll let the students themselves tell you what they think.

This video by Campus Reform takes us into the wacky world of triggered college students who are so much in opposition of the people who made this country possible that they’d rather be named after the “river horse” of sub-Saharan Africa.
