Professors at Bloomsburg University, in Pennsylvania, have been working overtime to get the college administration to remove a conservative students group over its alleged, “homophobic, sexist, racist, and anti-Muslim,” stances.
Prof Wendy Lynne Lee, an Alt-Left radical, and philosophy professor, is leading the charge against the conservative Turning Points USA (TPUSA) student group. Unsurprisingly, Prof. Lee specializes in environmental philosophy, and feminist theory.
TPUSA advocates for conservative social policies, and limited government, with the mission to, “identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government.”
“Were it the case that TPUSA and its BU [Bloomsburg] Chapter were just what the TPUSA describes—a conservative/libertarian/Pro-Capitalism group—that would be just fine,” Lee allegedly admitted in an email. “But TPUSA has a number of other serious issues.”
Prof. Lee pointed to the organization’s ties to the anti-Terrorist David Horowitz Freedom Center, which is a leading voice against radical Islamic terrorism. The Freedom Center is also “dedicated to the defense of free societies whose moral, cultural, and economic foundations are under attack by enemies both secular and religious, at home and abroad.”
Lee also had said in her initial email that another TPUSA partner, the Heartland Institute, is a self-described “free-market think tank,” and is “devoted to fueling the machinery of climate change denial.”
She had argued in a series of emails that the student organization promotes a “white supremacist and misogynist worldview” and “far-right authoritarianism with … a patently racist, sexist, and homophobic agenda.”
The professors, being led by Lee, are demanding that TPUSA be purged from the campus. They, self-servingly, define TPUSA’s consistent conservative message and anti-terrorism stances as “plainly way out of the rational mainstream.”
“These are folks who’d support Roy Moore for the Senate, birthers, truthers, climate change deniers, and white supremacists,” Lee wrote, clarifying, “This is not about freedom of speech—unless, of course, the university is looking to align itself with white supremacist organizations who’d silence its minority voices… it is a white supremacist one.”
