WATCH: Student government and multicultural center director rejects Pro-Capitalism club because it's “against humanity”

StaffRebel Columnist

Santa Clara University’s student government voted to deny a pro-capitalism club with official recognition because it may invite conservative speakers, promote American exceptionalism and would be “against humanity.”

Santa Clara University’s student senate voted 16-10 on February 2. In a video obtained by The College Fix, debate erupted after representatives from the Jesuit university’s multicultural center criticized the conservative club called Turning Point USA.

The director of the multicultural center said that, “this organization, nationally and on this campus, is against our ideals as a university with a Jesuit philosophy and more than anything it is against our humanity … This is not right, this is not what we stand for as a whole university.”

According to The College Fix, Student Senator David Warne said that 50 people, primarily from groups such as the Multicultural Center with large amounts of university funding, came to protest TPUSA’s request for recognition.

Some who voted against the club even took issue with the fact TPUSA referenced “American Exceptionalism” in their presentation, Warne added.

Another senator defended the group saying, “this pushback is completely politically motivated, it is not about the rights. Admittedly this college leans to the left and there is apprehension that this club is pretty strongly conservative. This is about free speech, this club does not promote any hatred.”

Caleb Alleva, president of the TPUSA chapter said that critics were worried TPUSA would invite Milo Yiannopoulos to campus.

“They kept asking us if we were going to invite Milo and even in our presentation we said we were not going to invite him,” Alleva said. “We stated that our goal is to draw opposing students into dialogue and we don’t think that Milo does that.”

They will be trying again next academic quarter for official recognition status.

Santa Clara U. is/was a Catholic University. I saw ‘was’ because it is pretty much being/been taken over by the left winged liberals. Even the President of the U. was trying to defend the Catholic position on abortion when challenged by staff who wanted abortions to be paid for by the U. health coverage. One of his staff accused the U. President (a Priest) “of imposing Catholic beliefs on faculty and staff…”.

So what, don’t even bother with “official” recognition. Set up your club off-campus.

Changes need to be made in our Schools and University’s. When Politics is the subject, it should be Law that all Political views, Left, Right and Center are covered. Students are only instructed about the joys of Marxism in this, our enlightened days.

Strange — female Muslim trumps a male Muslim only if the male presents as impartial – not so strange

Once again we see the socialists calling any opinion (which is usually a conservative opinion) as hate speech.

And with applause free speech dies at the Santa Clara University.

Why are the communist wannabes so “dumping their in drawers” petrified of the right wing conservative point of view?
