    by Evan Stambaugh   Around four years prior to preventing a Catholic conservative commentator from speaking on campus, an abortionist from Planned Parenthood spoke at a “workplace inclusion” conference affiliated with the University of St. Thomas. In April 2018, Dr. Sarah Traxler, the medical director of Planned Parenthood North Central States, which is headquartered in St. Paul, spoke at the 30th annual “Forum on Workplace Inclusion.” According to Pro-Life Action Ministries, which exposed Traxler’s involvement, the Forum on Workplace Inclusion was previously part of the Office of Diversity & Inclusion at the University of St. Thomas business school in Minneapolis. “The Forum on Workplace Inclusion is no longer affiliated with the University of St. Thomas. At the time, the forum’s organizers were responsible for organizing sessions and speakers, and the session in question was focused on the topic of diversity in the workplace,” the Catholic university told Alpha News. The forum moved to Augsburg University in 2019, after Traxler’s presentation in 2018. Traxler was one of two presenters from Planned Parenthood North Central States, the other being Tonya Hampton, vice president...
    The University of South Carolina’s College of Social Work hosted a “White Accountability” meeting, where white students were informed that they contribute to racism in their everyday lives. The “purpose” of the project, according to the event description, is to “help social work students recognize both their contribution to and responsibility to dismantle racism in our practice and everyday lives,” find ways to use their “privilege” to enact change, and learn skills to host their own “White Accountability Groups.” U of South Carolina President Harris Pastides (University of South Carolina) The University of South Carolina insisted the “White Accountability” meeting was part of a “class project,” telling Breitbart News, “The Group meeting was part of a doctoral candidate’s class project and not something that was offered by College of Social Work itself.” “Participation in the project was open to anyone and was strictly voluntary,” the university added. An internal email obtained by Turning Point USA (TPUSA), however, showed the university’s College of Social Work branding attached to a virtual flier advertising for the event. “Hello all CoSW Students! Spots are still open...
    The University of Buffalo’s Black Student Union (BSU) held a town hall meeting to discuss the trauma they  endured by Lt. Col. Allen West (Ret.) visiting campus to speak at an event, titled, “America is Not Racist.” Amongst the outraged responses to West’s appearance, one stands out — the university’s graduate student association says it “condemns the anti-black hate speech promoted by Allen West’s presence on campus.” Allen West visited the University of Buffalo (UB) last month to speak at an event about how “America is not racist” and “why American values are exceptional,” but the school descended into chaos, according to one student who organized the event.

Black Student Union Secretary Taylor Lewis, for example, said she “felt weird,” and was “trying to figure out where [her] place” on campus is as a “human being.” “I feel weird,” Lewis said. “I know that’s kind of a weird thing to say, but I’m...
    Academia’s promotion of teaching children that they can select their “gender” regardless of their biological sex continues at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, including calling the Texas law that protects minors from life-altering treatment “abhorrent.” The school held an event on Transgender Day of Visibility on March 31 that it described this way: “Adolescence is a tender time full of profound self-discovery. Coming into your own is complicated enough.” The event was titled: “Advocacy & Allyship: Supporting Transgender Youth” and was organized with the Clark-Fox Policy Institute of Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. Campus Reform reported on the event, which included on a panel a “transgender child” identified as as girl living as a boy who picked the name Myles. The panel discussed “how teachers can address ‘anti-trans legislation,’ intersectionality of transgender hardships, children ‘explor[ing]’ gender identity, and medical procedures for ‘pre-pubertal’ children.” Campus Reform reported: “There are systemic efforts underway across our country right now to deprive trans youth of their rights and ability to compete in sports, to access medical and mental health...
    Cruz taped an episode of his podcast The Verdict in New Haven, Connecticut  Ted Cruz attacked his fellow Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee, during a taping of his podcast on Monday night hosted by a Yale University student group, accusing them of not going harder on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson during her Supreme Court confirmation hearing because they did not want to be seen as 'modern-day Klansmen.' Cruz caught criticism during Jackson's marathon Senate grilling for his aggressive questioning over her prior sentencing decisions in child pornography cases. Later on at the event he was confronted by a Yale student about the 'flagrantly racist questions' he asked Jackson during the speaking event's Q&A portion.  Cruz told DailyMail.com after the taping that he 'didn't agree with her sentiments' but praised the girl for asking her question in a 'respectful way.' 'I'm glad she asked that, I don't think it's accurate. In fact, I think it is harmful to attribute racism to something that is not. But I was glad she asked it because we could have a conversation about the substantive...
    A UNIVERSITY of Buffalo student has claimed she was chased by an angry crowd who threatened to capture her after a campus event where she invited Republican Allen West to speak.

    A conservative student at the University of Buffalo says she was forced to hide in a men's bathroom after a mob of angry student protesters disrupted an event featuring conservative speaker Allen West. Therese Purcell, the president of conservative student group Young Americans for Freedom at the University of Buffalo, helped organize a campus lecture by West last week that devolved into chaos after a group of student protesters disrupted the event.
    Purcell said she was able to narrowly escape the crowd by running away and hiding in a nearby men's bathroom. But she claimed another one of her club members wasn't so lucky. He was allegedly punched and kicked by protesters. Purcell added that she was fortunate to have escaped and didn't know what would've happened to her had she been caught by the mob. "I was really afraid for my life since they physically assaulted my friend, and like I said, they were screaming, 'No peace!'" she told Fox News. "I don't think they were going to do anything remotely peaceful. They were a very angry mob, and they were clearly saying that they were trying to chase me, that they wanted to capture me." "So I'm afraid of what would have happened if I wasn't able to hide from them," she added. What else? In a statement Friday, Purcell said, "I am unbelievably disturbed that I was chased by a leftist mob and scared for my life on my college campus all...
    A University of Buffalo student said she was 'hunted down' by a woke mob screaming 'no justice, no peace,' after she invited prominent black Republican Lt. Col. Allen West to speak on how he overcame racism.  Therese Purcell, president of the Young Americans for Freedom, a campus club that organized the event, said she and her fellow members only wanted to bring these open dialogues of racism to campus.  But protests erupted at the event, leading to an angry mob that chased Purcell, leaving her afraid of what would have happened if she wasn't able to hide from them. She shared terrifying footage of the incident online, and says it left her fearing for her life, Fox News reported.  'I realized I was the target for these protesters, and about 200 of my fellow students started hunting me down on campus, started chasing me,' she said.     Purcell said she heard the angry crown screaming, 'go her her, go get her, go capture her, the girl in the red dress.'  Therese Purcell, president of the Young Americans for Freedom, a campus club that...
    Retired Lt. Col. Allen West reflected on needing a police escort to safely exit a speaking event at the University of Buffalo after Black Lives Matter activists shut it down, noting he remembers when he would have needed an escort onto a college campus. West was speaking at an event sponsored by the University of Buffalo’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter Thursday in New York when a black female student scolded him for “ignoring the struggle of your own people” and validating conservative views people she referred to as “oppressors.” The former Republican Florida congressman’s speech was titled “America is Not Racist.” West, who is black, was most recently chairman of the Texas Republican Party and lost in the Republican primary in this year's election to be Texas governor. Students shouted popular BLM slogans, including “No Justice, No Peace,” and “Say it loud, I’m black and I’m proud,” as West was flanked by police officers while exiting the building.

    Tennessee Governor Bill Lee joined lawmakers at the state and federal level, as well as other prominent figures, in signing a letter asking Yale Law School to discipline a “vitriolic mob” that derailed a bipartisan panel on free speech at the campus in March. The letter urges Yale Law School to punish the “physical intimidation and menacing behavior” directed at the speakers, who were escorted out of the event by police due to the mob. The letter also calls on the law school to “condemn the behavior of students who violated other people’s rights” and “take appropriate disciplinary actions in keeping with Yale’s free speech policies.” “Instead of engaging with the panelists, a shocking number of Yale Law students hurled constant insults and obscenities at them and tried to prevent them from speaking and being heard,” the letter reads. “Our nation desperately needs the next generation of attorneys, legislators, judges, and Supreme Court justices to be marked by the character and values that undergird the American legal profession and a free society.” “I signed a letter to Yale Law School...
    Leftists at the University of Virginia are pressuring the school’s administration to ban former Vice President Mike Pence from speaking at a student-sponsored event on Grounds, saying his presence is “dangerous” threatens student safety. Pence is set to speak at a Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) event at the University on April 12. In both an op-ed and an editorial in the University newspaper, the Cavalier Daily, leftist students argue that “dangerous rhetoric is not entitled to a platform,” continuing that “speech that threatens the lives of those on Grounds is unjustifiable.” The radical editorial board outrightly makes the argument that “diversity of thought” is no longer a virtue at Thomas Jefferson’s university. “We as an Editorial Board found ourselves questioning what should be protected under the premise of ‘diversity of thought’ and more importantly, what values we choose to accept on Grounds,” they wrote. “For us, the answer is simple. Hateful rhetoric is violent — and this is impermissible.” [Emphasis added]. After trashing an event called “In Defense of Mr. Jefferson” as an attempt to “glorify a known enslaver who...
    by Alexa Schwerha   George Washington University (GWU) students held a bipartisan protest Tuesday, urging the Washington D.C. institution to divest its endowment from companies that are complicit in China’s human rights abuses. The demonstration, which involved both of the university’s College Republicans and College Democrats chapters, comes one week after university President Mark S. Wrighton rescinded his criticism of on-campus artwork that critiqued China’s abuses against its Uyghur population. “We’ve all banded together,” activist and GWU alum Juan Carlos Mora told Campus Reform during the protest. Mora also said that Tuesday’s event, organized by the GW Uyghur Divestment Committee, was in direct response to Wrighton’s critique. The committee is not officially registered with the university, which Mora explained is intentional to maximize the group’s efficiency and effective collaboration. Mora also stated that individuals from the university law school are also involved in addition to the undergraduate student organizations. Campus Reform estimates that 15-20 students participated in the protest, which was held in Kogan Plaza, a high traffic area on the university campus. Louie Kahn, executive director of the College Democrats, told Campus Reform that the protest was...

      Ohio State University’s annual “Sex Week,” which begins Sunday, will feature two days for students to meet and thank abortion providers. “Meet [Student Advocates for Sexual Health Awareness] (SASHA) in the Union on the 1st floor on to help thank abortion providers in Ohio and Texas for the valuable work they do for reproductive rights! We will be creating valentines,” the group’s schedule says. The Catholic League condemned the event on its website. “To show how progressive they are at Ohio State, on two days next week — Wednesday and Friday — they will hold an event, ‘Valentine’s for Abortion Providers,'” the organization said. “This will give administrators, faculty and students an opportunity to thank doctors who kill unborn children for a living for their yeoman service.” On February 14, Valentine’s Day itself, the group will hold what it calls a “SEXPO,” an educational fair centered around sex, and an event to explore sexual kinks. “Walk through our ‘adult’ science fair to learn more about various areas of sex education! Test your anatomy knowledge by playing our version of...
    The Department of Defense’s National Defense University (NDU), the premier education institution for military and defense civilian leaders, is planning to host a lecture on how Western countries should adopt socialism in response to the challenge from China. The lecture, which is scheduled to take place online February 16, is titled, “Responding to China: The Case For Global Justice and Democratic Socialism,” and will be given by French economist Thomas Piketty, who is the author of a 2021 book titled Time for Socialism. In this June 30, 2014 file photo, French economist Thomas Piketty speaks during his seminar at the Almedalen political week in Visby on the island of Gotland, in Sweden. (AP Photo/Janerik Henriksson)  A summary of the event, posted on the university’s website, reads: Western countries are still struggling to define their attitude towards the Beijing regime. In this talk on February 22, 2022, Thomas Piketty will argue that the right answer lies in ending Western arrogance and promoting a new emancipatory and egalitarian horizon on a global scale, a new form of democratic and participatory, ecological and post-colonial socialism....
    The University of Virginia reportedly paid author and Boston University professor Ibram X. Kendi $32,500 to deliver an hourlong virtual lecture on racial equity. The lecture occurred online in April 2021 and is not the first instance of a public university paying top dollar for the How to be an Antiracist author. The total amount for Kendi’s honorarium at the university was obtained by the Daily Wire through a Freedom of Information Act request. The event was reportedly attended by 876 people, was open to the public, and was free to attend. The contract between the university and the Penguin Random House Speakers Bureau, which organizes Kendi’s lectures, revealed that half the honorarium had to be paid three weeks prior to the event taking place. UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN PAID CRITICAL RACE THEORIST $40,000 FOR LECTURE, THEN SCRUBBED IT FROM SERVER Kendi has been criticized for arguing that racially disparate outcomes in various aspects of life are the product of systemic racism, a key component of critical race theory, which says that U.S. institutions and...
    by Kendall Tietz   Ohio State University encouraged students to “thank abortion providers” as part of its organized “Sex Week,” Fox News reported. Student Advocates for Sexual Health Awareness is hosting a “Sex Week” funded by the Ohio State University Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies and the College of Social Work, Fox News reported. The event is funded through student activity fees from the Council on Student Affairs, according to the “Sex Week” website. On Feb. 16, an event called “Valentine’s for Abortion Providers” is described as an opportunity “to help thank abortion providers in Ohio and Texas for the valuable work they do for reproductive rights!” according to the Sex Week at the Ohio State University website. Sky Hart, president of Student Advocates for Sexual Health Awareness, told Fox News that the event was organized because abortion providers “deserve appreciation.” Hart reportedly said event attendees will be making cards to mail to the abortion providers. “We feel that it is important to appreciate the family planning providers that are able to provide essential healthcare for our communities,” Hart said, Fox News reported. “Our...
    “I think everybody here, especially the students in the audience today, regardless of your color, regardless of where you’re from, have the ability to demand and affect change,” O’Brien said. “We are not centuries removed from these struggles. And maybe more importantly, young people have often been catalysts for change, if they opt in to doing so. ... So of course, King is most relevant today, but in many ways, because a lot of the battles he was fighting for, we’re still fighting today, a lot of the things that he felt were issues have not been resolved. We haven’t solved them and moved on.”Anything else? At least one irate student told the outlet that she believed the speaking fee was outrageous. "For $40,000 I'd rather have more parking," the student said. The outlet reached out to both a spokesperson for the school and to O'Brien for comment on the speaking fee, but did not receive a response in time for publication.
