UCSB CRs turn tables on liberal senator, win Shapiro funding (Video)

The University of California, Santa Barbara College Republicans won funding to bring conservative commentator Ben Shapiro to campus despite a vocal protest by students accusing the group of promoting “hate speech.” Funding for the Ben Shapiro event was eventually approved by a vote of 16-7 despite the presence of more than 100 students demanding that the request be rejected.

The University of California, Santa Barbara College Republicans have faced significant backlash for attempting to bring conservative commentator Ben Shapiro to campus, including protests of a funding request meeting as well as physical threats from a student senator.

According to a statement on the UCSB College Republicans Facebook page, funding requests for speaker events must be approved by both the Associated Students at the Finance & Business Committee (ASF&B), as well as the Student Senate. The CRs were able to get their event approved by ASF&B, but began to face problems when the request moved to the Senate.

“Upon discovering that our funding request had been approved by ASF&B, the UCSB Black Student Union organized an event entitled ‘Senate BLACKout,’ taking place at the Senate meeting on Wednesday, November 2nd, in order to protest ASF&B’s vote to fund our event as well as to demand that the Senate nullify ASF&B’s decision,” the CRs wrote in an official statement.

“War”—Steve Bannon, BREITBART, Ben Shapiro, And What Comes Next

Donald Trump, amazingly, gets this. By formally aligning himself with Breitbart, he’s put the governing elite on notice they can be identified as enemies, removed and replaced.

“War” was the late Andrew Breitbart’s one-word analysis of how American patriots should treat the Lying Press. It’s a war that’s continued even after his death, under the leadership of Steve Bannon. And, as in all wars, the self-declared guardians of “true conservatism” are eager to call retreat.

Leading the charge: the littlest neocon, Ben Shapiro, who, after a career spent posturing against Political Correctness and Safe Spaces, is now moaning about unapproved voices gaining ascendance within the American Right.

He ran to the Washington Post to complain that the “Breitbart Alt Right” had taken over the GOP following Steven Bannon’s elevation in the Trump campaign. Shapiro claims the Alt Right is different from “constitutional conservatism”:

Constitutional conservatives can’t stand the Alt Right. Conservatives—real conservatives—believe that only a philosophy of limited government, God-given rights and personal responsibility can save the country. And that creed is not bound to race or ethnicity. Broad swaths of the Alt Right, by contrast, believe in a creed-free, race-based nationalism, insisting, among other things, that birth on American soil confers superiority. The Alt Right sees limited-government constitutionalism as passé; it holds that only nationalist populism on the basis of shared tribal identity can save the country. It’s a movement shot through with racism and anti-Semitism.

Fascist American Universities 2016: Notes from Cal State Los Angeles by Ben Shapiro (Videos)

Precious snowflakes, we’re coming. And liberty is coming with us.

I have spoken at college campuses for well over a decade. I’ve been booed, protested, and targeted for hate mail.

I have never seen or experienced anything like the near-riot that occurred at California State University in Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon when I came to speak.

Here’s the backstory.

Several weeks ago, Young America’s Foundation announced that I would be touring the country speaking to college students with the Fred R. Allen lecture series. The first campus scheduled, thanks to the hard work of young YAF volunteers, was California State University in Los Angeles.

As Breitbart News reported, the consternation from the left was vociferous:

Professor Robert Weide threatened to wrestle students for sponsoring the event, and Black Lives Matter activist Professor Melina Abdullah, who took to Facebook to complain, “I say this event is a problem…What we go’n do y’all?!?!” One of the commenters, Ruben Martin, replied, “You want I should hoiwt’em bwoss? I’s got a fews ideas me n’d’fellas been kickin ‘round. Only ting iz he won’t be talking or lookin so nice no more. We’ll take the cannolies…” CSULA students have said the event poses a “threat to their lives” and is “damaging to their mental health.”

Here’s Ben Shapiro’s Blunt Message for the Campus Fascists Who Tried to Silence Him (Video)

Attendees and journalists were reportedly physically assaulted. One attendee claimed to have anti-Semitic slurs hurled his way when he took a call from a friend in Israel. Students lucky enough to attend had to be smuggled in four at a time through a back door. The fire alarm was also pulled during the speech in effort to shutdown the event. Shapiro, undeterred, vowed to continue on.

Conservative author and Daily Wire Editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro, 32, spoke at California State University, Los Angeles on Thursday despite threats issued to him and students organizing the event, blockading protesters, and an initial cancellation by President William Covino—only overturned last minute to save face, and perhaps some legal troubles.

Shapiro, never one to back down, issued a blunt message directly to those actively shutting down freedoms guaranteed to all via the First Amendment: “F*ck your fascism.”

“For all the people outside,” said Shapiro during his speech on diversity. “Here’s my message to the bloviating jackasses outside: Toughen up, you spoiled brat snowflakes, if you actually want a better world.”

Black Lives Matter Activist-Professor Threatens Ben Shapiro and Conservative Students at CSULA

A Black Lives Matter activist who is also a professor at California State University Los Angeles (CSULA) is threatening Breitbart News senior editor-at-large Ben Shapiro and the conservative Young America’s Foundation (YAF) in advance of Shapiro’s lecture at the school on February 25.

Melina Abdullah – professor and chair of Pan-African Studies at CSULA – is a Black Lives Matter organizer. According to Lauren McCue at YAF, Abdullah took to Facebook Thursday, urging a call for action to counter Shapiro’s event. Abdullah was also recently criticized for making radical calls to #AbolishThePolice.

McCue reports that in the comments following Abdullah’s post, one person, referring to Shapiro, wrote, “‘[he] won’t be talking or lookin so nice no more’ after the event.”

She adds:

Abdullah is also spreading fabricated rumors that conservatives are threatening to bring guns to the event. Despite multiple claims of such threats, CSULA YAF and Young America’s Foundation have been unable to uncover any evidence.

The only threats with supporting evidence have come from leftists, including Professor Robert Donald Weide who challenged conservative students to a wrestling match, telling one commenter, “I lift, bro.” He also cryptically threatened to “macroaggress” campus conservatives in a bizarre message on his office door.

Ben Shapiro – Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV (Video)

“These people, the people who create television, the same folks that say imperialism is the worst form of evil in the universe, are the greatest cultural imperialists in history. And it ain’t close. Sometimes unconscious, because they think they’re reflecting real life America when in fact they’re transforming it.”
