    The Connecticut Federation of College Republicans held a press conference on Thursday, during which they claimed conservative students are being singled out on Connecticut campuses over their political views.

    Make no mistake, if the basic civil rights of progressive students were being infringed upon in this manner, it would be a national news story.

    WTNH News reports:

    College Republicans voice concerns over alleged harassment on campuses due to political views

    Registered Republicans from colleges across Connecticut arrived at the State Capitol to voice concerns over alleged harassment due to their political views on Thursday afternoon.

    The college students touched on allegations of free speech violations, the feeling of censorship and bullying amongst their peers and educational leaders on Connecticut college campuses.

    Timothy Anop, a student of the University of New Haven, who is also the Chairman of Connecticut Federation of College Republicans, provided an example in regards to his own personal experience of his professor calling him out in front of the class, stating that, his “opinions didn’t matter because he supported the President.”

    The students allege that professors across colleges “guide students with opinions in to silence and suppression, and do not allow free speech in the educational system.”

    Here’s a short video from WTNH:

    College Republicans say free speech at risk on Connecticut campuses

    College Republicans say free speech is in jeopardy on campuses throughout Connecticut.

    At a press conference Thursday, several conservative students said they are subject to verbal abuse and harassment when they speak out.

    Trinity College student Nick Engstrom said he was publicly berated by a professor because he supports President Trump.

    Noting that most campuses prohibit discrimination based on gender, race, sexual orientation and a host of other categories, the Connecticut Federation of College Republicans is urging college officials to add political ideology to the list.

    When I speak with a lefty I try to bring this question into the mix, “If you don’t want limited government, will you then be happy with unlimited government?”

      We want limited government. They want its only known alternative = unlimited government. And if they ever got that on the North American continent, we can, based on the numerous examples from the European, Asian, and African continents, predict exactly what will happen.

      What makes the American system different, better, and exceptional is this: America became great, not because of what government could or might do. America became great because of what government was prevented from doing. Thereby leaving the people alone to produce and keep/exchange their products. Left unchecked, government will take it all.

      Suggest watching the 30-minute video, Overview of America, by the JBS/John McManus. Available on the web.
