‘Young Americans For Liberty’ Kowtows To Leftist Campus Commissars

The astroturfed faux-liberty organization shows it will never stand for free speech when it actually matters

‘America First’ host Nick Fuentes is never afraid to embrace controversy, and he has emerged as one of Trump’s top young media surrogates as a result of his hot political takes. After he was booked to speak at a small private college in Indiana, the campus commissars quickly identified Nick’s wrongthink and stepped into immediate action to defame the man.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology President Jim Conwell released a groveling letter where he called Fuentes a “white supremacist” without offering any evidence for that claim. The letter could be seen as a dog whistle to ANTIFA to inform them about the event and jeopardize the safety of possible attendees.

“I want to re-affirm to all of our students, faculity, staff, alumni, parents, and friends that Rose-Hulman absolutely does not tolerate discrimination nor support hate speech. The decision to allow the Fuentes engagement to continue is based on our belief in this community’s solid core values, which include the exchange of ideas,” Conwell wrote in the letter.

However, while even this leftist campus commissar values the free exchange of ideas, the Young Americans for Liberty national organization does not. The leftist administrator was willing to let the discussion take place, but the supposedly pro-free speech liberty group put their foot down. As a result, the event is being cancelled, and the YAL chapter at Rose-Hulman that planned to bring Fuentes to campus was forced to dissolve because they stood their ground.

President Conwell wrote another letter explaining how it was the national YAL organization that twisted the arms of their student activists to make sure the speech was cancelled and the leftist campus thugs had a victory to celebrate.

“The national YAL organization contacted the club leadership last Friday and made it clear that, while it champions freedom of speech, it believes in equal rights for all and is opposed to the notion that some groups are inferior to others. Because Fuentes’ views are in direct opposition to what YAL stands for, the national organization gave the club the ultimatum: pull the speaker or lose affiliation,” Conwell wrote.

“Club leadership made the decision to separate from YAL. With the club no longer in existence, the event is cancelled,” he added.

YAL has behaved in similarly shameful and hypocritical ways in recent years. In 2017, they sent activists under false pretenses to assist establishment-backed loser candidates such as failed Alabama Senate hopeful Luther Strange and failed Michigan gubernatorial hopeful Brian Calley under slave labor conditions. It was also revealed that YAL President Cliff Maloney was receiving payola from Gary Johnson’s embarrassing 2016 Libertarian Party Presidential campaign while simultaneously blacklisting Trump supporters from his organization. YAL also cowered out of a scheduled Milo Yiannopolis speech in 2016 at Michigan State University under similar pretenses.

When it comes to YAL, they are willing to defend free speech…right up until the point it might offend one of their billionaire donors. This Fuentes debacle should clarify to anyone who may be confused exactly why the libertarian movement waned so abruptly.
