When was the last time you heard of a liberal college group being suspended for inviting a like minded speaker to campus? You haven’t because that never happens.
In the case of the College Republicans at UC Irvine however, that’s just what the school did because a conservative group invited Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos to speak.
Campus Reform reports:
College Republicans suspended by UC Irvine after hosting Milo
The University of California, Irvine has suspended its College Republicans chapter for an entire year after the group hosted controversial conservative pundit Milo Yiannopoulos.
Breitbart News reports that a UCI administrator recently requested to meet with leaders of the CRs, during which CR President Ariana Rowlands suggested the possibility of bringing Yiannopoulos back to campus.
Just four hours after the meeting, the group received an email stating that it had been suspended for an entire year.
The email, however, apparently cited the group’s failure to provide proof of insurance for hired private security guards as grounds for suspension—making no mention of Yiannopoulos’ appearance on campus.
As Breitbart notes, the group had previously hosted David Horowitz on campus without being required to provide proof of insurance, nor was it penalized for not doing so.
Nonetheless, after Yiannopoulos’ visit to campus, the group has now lost its club status, meaning it will not be able to hold meetings, reserve space, or host events on campus.
The left completely controls academia and that’s what this issue is really about.
Campus overlords are reminding conservatives on campus to know their place.
