    U. Central Florida Students Protest ‘White Supremacist’ Ben Shapiro

    “homophobic, transphobic, and racist commentary”

    People who call Ben Shapiro a ‘white supremacist’ are stupid and should be told that they are stupid.

    Campus Reform reports:

    UCF students protest ‘white supremacist’ Ben Shapiro

    During a student government meeting at the University of Central Florida, students gathered to protest a bill to allocate funds for a speaking event featuring conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.

    Students gathered to oppose the allocation of student fees for Shapiro, reasoning that the mainstream conservative figure is supposedly known for his “homophobic, transphobic, and racist commentary.” The Pride Student Association made an Instagram post including the date and time of the meeting and encouraged students to block funds that would be used to “bring white supremacist Ben Shapiro to our campus.”

    The College Republicans at UCF announced in January that the conservative political commentator was scheduled to appear on campus.

    Shapiro’s appearance is part of the Fred Allen Lecture Series sponsored by Young America’s Foundation.

    According to Knight News at UCF, College Republicans requested $17,000 of activity and service fees from the student body. Some of the funds for the event have already been raised by the College Republicans.

    When a funding request exceeds $1,500, the allocation must be submitted as a bill to the senate rather than committee allocation.

    Let’s be clear. They didn’t call Ben Shapiro a white supremacist because they actually believe he’s a white supremacist. No one with two or more brain cells believes that.

    They called him a white supremacist because white supremacists are scary people and it’s easier to convince others to oppose scary people than thoughtful ones.

    Let’s see…

    These college-indoctrina– er, um–edjoomikated skulls-of-much perpetual adolescents are protesting the arrival of “white supremacist Ben Shapiro” to speak at their campus.

    As the popular saying goes, “Stupid is as stupid does.”

    Or as a friend of mine once noted, “What this lacks in dumb it makes up for in stupid.”

    Does Person A not 100% agree and endorse what I believe? Person A must be a racist/[fill-in-the-blank]ist of some sort deserving of the most painful demise and censure (preferably in that order).

    Parents, THAT is what the tuition for your little snowflake darlings is paying for.

    Possibly these students are examples of why the school is known around town as “U Can’t Finish.”

    Past time to cull the herd.

    When your core beliefs and principles wither when debated fairly, then you restrict speech and shelter them from scrutiny. Placing onerous restrictions and requiring excessive security are some tactics used. It is particularly silly when the reasons for security are from the limiting side.
