Two senators in Texas State’s student government wrote a resolution entitled “The Faculty and Student Safety Resolution of 2019,” reported Campus Reform. What would increase faculty and student safety? You got it — banning wrongthink on campus! The two senators wrote “Turning Point USA is a national organization with a consistent history of creating hostile work and learning environments through a myriad of intimidation tactics aimed against students and faculty.”
You know, intimidation tactics like dressing up in a diaper to own the libs. No but seriously, they’re probably talking about Turning Point’s professor watchlist, which lists left-wing professors on campus, but if you wanna talk about list-making, you might wanna address a certain other political faction, as well.
Anyway, you know this really isn’t about Turning Point’s method, but rather the matter, the substance of their speech. The resolution apparently accused the group of “hate speech,” saying “protecting hate speech under the guise that it is a component of free speech or academic freedom is counter-intuitive to providing a safe, healthy, fact-based, evidence-based environment.”
OK so even if you do buy into the premise that hate speech is a thing, Turning Point is literally like the most innocuous, boilerplate political group out there. Its mission is to get students “to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government.” Oooooh. I mean you really can’t get more milquetoast than that. Anyways, the student government initially didn’t pass the resolution to ban Turning Point, but there was some procedural confusion, the senators took a revote, and it passed by a 9-2 margin.
You know that meme “Ima let you finish but…”? from when Kanye interrupted Taylor Swift? Well, that’s pretty much what happened when Texas State responded to the student government, saying “student organizations can only be barred if they are under disciplinary sanctions. Student Government does not have the authority to independently bar a recognized student organization.”
As they say, get rekt.
Socialist Group’s LGBT: ‘Let’s Guillotine Bourgeoisie Traitors’
The Young Democratic Socialists of America chapter at Texas State University tweeted last week “Happy Pride Month, y’all! Remember this month: Let’s Guillotine Bourgeoisie Traitors,” according to Campus Reform.
Now, just think for a moment what would happen if a conservative student group tweeted something like this out about any group that wasn’t rich, white, or male. It would be labeled incitement to violence, the Twitter account would probably get banned, and a university bias team would probably conduct IP traces or something to find out exactly who made the post. But since it’s the left, eh, no big deal.
And that wasn’t the only thing Texas State’s YDSA chapter tweeted. The group went on to say “Also shout out to our E-Board/Coordinating Committee, which has literally no straight people on it.”
Because remember, discrimination or celebrating the absence of one identity group is totally OK, as long it’s done to the right groups. I’m reminded of this photo a former HuffPoster tweeted out showing an all-female, almost entirely all-white editor meeting.
One of the first words that came to her mind when sending that post was probably, unironically, “diversity.”
Leftist Student Has MELTDOWN When Arrested
A Texas State University student dressed like Antifa had a bit of a rough time with police. The whole little kerfuffle started when a Trump-supporting student apparently had his hat stolen and kicked, reported Campus Reform.
Police arrested four Texas State students overall. Tyler, the student who says he got his hat stolen, didn’t want to reveal his full name to avoid getting doxxed, but told a colleague of mine over at Campus Reform that he felt someone take the hat off of his head and that he ran after the girl and grabbed her backpack, but never her, for around five seconds before asking for his hat back. But she reportedly didn’t give it back until the popo came, when she dropped and kicked it like you saw. And the unhinged hysteria only intensified after that:
It’s not clear whether the masked student we saw earlier calls herself Antifa but just a reminder that even though we haven’t had a proper Antifa video on Campus Unmasked for a little while now, they’re still out there. It looks like journalist Andy Ngo out in Portland had a little run-in with one on Wednesday.
The best thing you can do when they pepper spray you, knock off and kick your MAGA hat, and so on is simply don’t let them off the hook. It may take a little extra time, but upload that video to social media, file that police report. You might end up with some cases like bike lock professor Eric Clanton, who got all felony charges dropped, but even in a corrupt system, if you stack evidence upon evidence upon evidence, eventually something’s gotta change.
Texas Antifa: All Cops ‘Deserve To Die’
I feel like every time I turn around, there’s a Texas Antifa group inciting violence. We had the Revolutionary Student Front at UT Austin, which said “bricks belong best thrown at pig heads,” hosted self-defense classes, and targeted the mentally ill for recruitment. Then there was the Autonomous Student Network at UT Austin, which suggested, instead of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, Law Enforcement Incineration Day.
This time, it’s a group called AnMarcos, which I think means “anarchists in San Marcos, Texas.” The group seems to be associated with or at least preoccupied with Texas State University and has taken to Twitter, posting a picture comparing Trump supporters to Nazis, both of them on the verge of getting stabbed with bayonets, according to Red Alert Politics. They also said “Today we wish to bring dishonor to the police force–something they do on their own daily, as they are nothing but the paid thugs of the ruling class. #NationalPoliceWeek #ACAB #PoliceWeek2018 #blueline #bluelivesmurder. All cops (the institution) deserve to die.”
Yes, let’s take our lesson in what is and is not honorable from Antifa. That sounds like a very good idea. And “blue lives murder”? You know that murder is an UNJUSTIFIED killing, right? When a suspect is beating the crap out of an officer or ignores instructions and reaches somewhere they’re not supposed to reach, you can’t really use that term anymore.
AnMarcos seemed to back down a little bit when asked to clarify their remarks. They said “we of course do not advocate cop killing, as it is true that some of the individuals who are underneath the badge are wonderful people.….It would be more proper to call a police officer a terrorist than many other groups that word is applied to, seeing as they lurk in our communities with the task of instilling fear into the populace and not one iota of ‘serving and protecting’ anyone except the ruling capitalist class.”
Is anyone shocked that ANARCHISTS — people who want chaos, are not only opposed to law and order, but deliberately try to misrepresent law and order as “fear” or “terrorism” to try to achieve their lunatic goals? No, the only shocking part is that this isn’t California; this is Texas.
