College Leftists Grow So Unhinged That Even Joe Biden Is Crying Foul

This week an invited speaker at a university blasted campus leftists across the nation for using violent tactics to silence the views of conservative speakers. But for once this criticism of the protesters who beat up students (along with innocent bystanders) for merely wanting to attend the speeches was not voiced by a conservative. Instead the criticism was uttered by a former official in the frankly leftist Obama administration: former Vice President Joe Biden. Before a University of Delaware audience, Biden defended the First Amendment rights of those who campus radicals found detestable, as well as the rights of students… Keep Reading

Students For Liberty Shuts Down Free Speech During ‘Anarchy At The Border’ Conference

At the Students for Liberty South Central Regional Conference in Lubbock, TX yesterday, one liberty-minded student had their free speech stomped upon by panelists for having the audacity to ask a question regarding transsexuals. Following a panel discussion in favor of open borders and illegal immigration, a student attempted to ask a question about who is paying for hormone pills for transgender detainees. As soon as the student began asking the question about transgender prisoners, he was immediately shut down by the panelists. “Can we go to next question please?” the panelist said. “I thought this was a free speech… Keep Reading

University Of Florida Turned Into Terrifying Police State For Richard Spencer’s Speech

The sanctimonious liberals at Florida University are crying up a storm because of Richard Spencer’s planned speech today. After trying to initially deny the man the free speech rights provided to him under the Constitution, University officials have turned their campus into a police state instead. “Now, for the first time in the history of our nation, very different racist groups are coming together under one person who speaks their language and their words and speaks their views on racism and white supremacy,” President Kent Fuchs said. “They’re coming to campus with the intentions of confrontation and with the intention… Keep Reading

Florida Declares State Of Emergency As ‘Hurricane Spencer’ Expected To Touch Down Thursday

The state of Florida cannot catch a break in 2017. First, they were hammered by Irma, and now a state of emergency has been declared by Gov. Rick Scott because of… Hurricane Richard Spencer? Richard Spencer, the alt-right iconoclast who became arguably the world’s most hated man after saying ‘Hail Trump!’ during a conference last year, is set to speak at the University of Florida in Gainesville on Thurs. This has prompted Gov. Scott to sign an executive order declaring a state of emergency. “We live in a country where everyone has the right to voice their opinion; however, we… Keep Reading

Vice Mayor Calls To Criminalize Free Speech After The Alt-Right Returns To Charlottesville

After a rally in Charlottesville hosted by alt-right leaders turned deadly in August, few were expecting them to show back up but that is exactly what they did this weekend. Led by Richard Spencer of AltRight.com, approximately 50 people marched through Emancipation Park on Saturday night with tiki torches in hand. Despite no violence or complications, city officials are still fighting mad over the demonstration. Charlottesville Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy, an ANTIFA sympathizer known for regularly publishing anti-white hate posts on his social media accounts, is calling on the state of Virginia to charge the individuals who showed up into… Keep Reading

Antifa Leader Files Frivolous Restraining Order Against Liberty Conservative Contributor

Yvette Felarca, the leader of the Northern California wing of By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), filed a frivolous restraining order against Troy Worden, an opinion contributor at The Liberty Conservative, falsely accusing Worden of engaging in harassment. Initially, the court approved the order, as Felarca had four fellow BAMN organizers testify as witnesses, despite the fact that some of those organizers were not even present during the alleged interaction between Worden and Felarca. Worden’s attorney, Mark Meuser, who is also The Liberty Conservative‘s Washington Correspondent, described the situation. “Based upon her testimony, the court entered a temporary restraining order that prohibited Worden… Keep Reading

The Absolute Absurdity Of The #TakeAKnee Debate

Of all the headlines taking control of the papers and social media, entertainers bending their knees appears to be at the top of the list. National Football League free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines last year repeatedly for refusing to stand during the National Anthem, a move he said was protesting racial inequality across the country. In the time since, other players have jumped on board, and it’s even spreading to other sports. Liberals celebrate such an apparently courageous stand, and opponents are triggered by knees being bent during a song. Both sides are deeply passionate about the topic… Keep Reading

If Paid Athletes Can #TakeAKnee, Can Paid Employees Express Political Beliefs Without Consequence As Well?

President Donald Trump’s recent tweets regarding the prevalence of NFL athletes kneeling during the national anthem was met with immediate disapproval from haters. Though tweets from Trump are always susceptible to backlash, the arguments against Trump, this particular time, hit some good points. The prominent arguments being stated are that kneeling during the National Anthem is a right protected under the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, and that political speech is not what the athletes are paid to do and the athletes must respond to their fan feedback. This is clearly a tough topic to have a simple opinion on… Keep Reading

DACA Recipient Leads Expulsion Campaign Against White Student, University Sides With Illegal Immigrant

Paola Garcia, a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, is organizing a campaign to get a white student expelled from her college after he posted about her status over social media. After the university president sided with the illegal immigrant in an e-mail, the student fears that his days may be numbered. Taylor Ragg, a senior at the Kentucky-based Transylvania University, made social media posts alerting conservatives about the illegal immigrant ‘dreamer’ who publicly flaunts her law-breaking status. Garcia had previously posted that she was “undocumented, unapologetic and unafraid” to her many followers on Facebook. Ragg… Keep Reading

Miscarriage Of Justice: Patriotic Veteran Has Constitutional Rights Revoked In Court Of Law

West Michigan resident Jim Chiodo served his country admirably in the Vietnam War. He did so hoping to preserve the American way of life, and stop the communist scourge abroad. Never could he have imagined that the country that he put his life on the line to defend would attempt to devastate his God-given rights. But that is exactly what happened on Thursday, Aug. 17 when Judge Karen Miedema ordered Chiodo to stay far away from Holland Sentinel editor Sarah Leach. The judge upheld a personal protection order (PPO) filed against Chiodo, who opposes the newspaper’s liberal political agenda, despite… Keep Reading

University Employs Private Eye To Dig Up Prosecutable Dirt On Conservative Student

When college campus leftists use visual displays, no matter how offensive, to make political points, the administration files this under “protected free speech.” As usual though, a double standard is at work when conservative college students engage in, no matter how mild the presentation, their own form of performance art. With the usual politically correct justification of protecting the feelings of any who might be offended at such displays, college administrations act swiftly and decisively, and more often than not, conservative students are forced to pack up their displays. In the case of Regis University, these efforts to “silence” such… Keep Reading

“Unite The Right” Protest Broken Up And Moved Due To ANTIFA Terror, Police Stand Down

Leftist terror has forced today’s “Unite the Right” rally to be moved from Emancipation Park after right-wing protesters were frequently assaulted. Law enforcement stood down and refused to protect protesters, causing a state of emergency, which caused the rally to be moved far away from the Robert E. Lee statue that was the focal point of the protest. Twitter is ablaze with images and video of melees occurring between far-left and far-right protesters. ANTIFA and their sympathizers, desperate to deny a “platform” for their opponents to speak freely, terrorized the protesters with mace, urine and feces as police stood down… Keep Reading

Jury Nullification Used To Free Libertarian Activist In Maryland

Dennis Fusaro, a libertarian activist, and Steve Waters were found not guilty by a jury of their own peers for illegal free speech. The men had sent a robocall back in 2014 to 5,000 people in Anne Arundel County, Maryland on the weekend before an important election. The robocall congratulated Democratic County Council candidate Patrick Armstrong “for his bravery in coming out of the closet” after he supported a transgender bathroom mandate. “Transgenders can now openly and freely go into any bathroom of their choice based on their confused gender identity,” the obviously satirical script for the robocall read. “Tell… Keep Reading

Despite Threats Of Violence, Ben Shapiro Will Speak At Berkeley

A form of leftist tyranny in the age of Trump is to adopt and practice the popular slogan of African-American activists, “no justice no peace,” by so-called anti-Fascist groups organized against Trump’s “fascism.” To their credit, African-American activists usually, but not always, organize around this slogan to protest actual events, frequently involving alleged wrongdoing committed against blacks by the police. “Justice” means the police officer, if proclaimed innocent of such “crimes” by juries, must go to jail. The “no peace” part of the slogan carries with it the threat of violence if such a demand is not met. It is… Keep Reading

Democratic Governor Stands Against Campus Free Speech, Vetoes Key Legislation

In yet another example of Democrats’ troubling views toward free speech, the governor of a traditionally red state killed a Republican-sponsored bill designed to deal with First Amendment violations on college campuses by anti-Trump protesters. Amazingly, the Democratic Governor of Louisiana, John Bell Edwards, vetoed the bill protecting free speech on campuses because he said it was not needed. Edwards wrote that the bill was an “unnecessary and overly burdensome to our colleges and universities as the freedoms this bill attempts to protect are already well-established by the bedrock principles declared in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”… Keep Reading

Louisiana House Bill Would Protect The Future Of Free Speech

Free speech is dying on college campuses; this is a known fact all across America.

One state representative, Lance Harris (R-LA), has proposed a bill that will uphold the First Amendment on campus.

Milo Yiannopoulos’ Immediate Resurgance Shows Media Hitmen Are Losing Power

Just a few months ago, mainstream media commentators were doing victory laps over Milo Yiannopoulos’ fall from grace.

The “I’m White, You’re Black” Mentality

Recently, I committed a lot of my time focusing and contemplating on the nature of race on the college campus. Granted, for most students, these universities and colleges are on summer break; but, these thoughts have still “haunted” me for the past few weeks. After witnessing many commencement ceremonies – especially for my fiancé who received her B.A. in Criminal Justice earlier this month ­– one concept that I have observed, given the wide diversity of people, is that the college campus is a Petri dish for insanity, extremism, suppression, and ignorance – for some of all sides on the… Keep Reading

Don’t Let Them Silence You

A leftist narrative gaining a lot of momentum in our current climate is “hate speech isn’t free speech!”, which, in essence, translates to “this speech, that you use, is not protected by the first amendment”. Seems a bit…convenient. Challenge this narrative, requesting a definition of “hate speech” and you will most likely find out that “hate speech” just means anything with which they disagree. This is why they don’t view your speech as permissible or even defensible under the law (the very law which they do not understand). Liberals also own this narrative so they no longer see it valuable… Keep Reading

Ending The Free Speech “Victim’s Mentality” On Campus

Standing With Milo Yiannopoulos Against Media Witch Hunt

The political arena becomes more Machiavellian with each passing day. This week’s firestorm includes controversial journalist and provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, who was accused of defending pedophilia and child sex. Milo is already experiencing immense fallout from this media-generated outrage. The political establishment has embarked on a witch-hunt against Milo like never before.

Disagree? No, You’re Just An Ignoramus.

The Left’s totalitarian ideology doesn’t lend much credence to diversity of thought, viewpoint, or opinion. While leftists on college campuses are gunning for diversity of skin color and ethnicity, they decry opposing views as physically harmful. Both students and faculty retreat to the cocoon of so-called ‘safe spaces’ to shield themselves from the scourge of dissent. What’s more, those with minority opinions can’t just disagree with the Left. They clearly must be liars or deniers. From the lack of free speech on college campuses to the media condemning ‘fake news’, there is no room for opposition to the leftist narrative.… Keep Reading

The fine line between protest and violence has been repeatedly crossed these past days.

Snowflakes: Stop Shutting Down Free Speech

A lack of diverse political discussion on college campuses does more harm than help to developing students.
