LBGTQ Group Strong Arm Florida College Students, Block Choice Speaker From Speaking
Florida has become sort of a ‘purple’ state as it’s become a giant melting pot filled with people from all over the nation. That’s contributed to the wealth of violence and crazy news we’ve heard about from the once-great State.
Recently, Flordia hit the news after a Liberal in Jacksonville attempted to run down Trump supporters who were trying to help others register to vote. That man has since been caught and admitted his motives were politically motivated.
Now we see Flordia in the news again as liberal students protest the arrival of a well-known political conservative commentator.
According to the Young Americans Foundation, the student government at the University of Central Florida voted “unfavorably” to grant funds to the conservative student group sponsoring Ben Shapiro’s upcoming lecture, after leftist students protested during a senate meeting.
Shapiro is slated to speak at UCF on March 23rd through Young America’s Foundation’s Fred Allen Lecture Series. Leftist students have started a campaign to block use of student government funds to pay for Shapiro’s honorarium, absurdly claiming that he is a white supremacist and “problematic.”
The proposed funding bill, which was voted “unfavorable” by a vote of 16-17-1, will go in front of the student senate next week, where it will need a majority vote to determine its passage.
DailyWire reports that the conservative group hosting the event says members of the student government have singled out Shapiro’s speech. The bill received more scrutiny than similar proposals, said College Republicans Vice Chairman Didi Malka. The “unfavorable” vote is an example of those in power allowing their ideological “biases” to stand in the way of “intellectual diversity,” something universities have traditionally been committed to promoting rather than discouraging.
“No other funding bill has been treated with the amount of scrutiny ours has received, and our bill has met every threshold Student Government requires for an RSO to receive funding,” Malka told YAF. “I am saddened to see that certain senators have put their own biases in front of providing intellectual diversity and we hope to convince them next week to change their minds.”
YAF noted that UCF Pride Student Association is the one who has spearheaded the protest.
