Just another case of those damn Obama socialist liberals on the nation’s campuses wiping their ass with the Bill of Rights in the name of political correctness, right? Oh, wait……
Richmond, VA — Liberty University has banned its fledgling College Democrats club, saying the group stands against the conservative Christian institution’s principles.
The president of the club, Brian Diaz, said he was notified by an e-mail message that the group was being banned by Liberty, a private university in Lynchburg, Va., that was founded by the Rev. Jerry Falwell.
Liberty’s vice president for student affairs, Mark Hine, wrote in the message to Mr. Diaz that the Democratic Party violated the university’s principles because, he said, it supports abortion, socialism and the agenda of gay, bisexual and transgender people.
The university’s chancellor, Jerry Falwell Jr., called the club’s recognition by the institution “an oversight by an administrator” who did not thoroughly consult university policy. — NY Times
You gotta wonder about the intelligence of kids who pay good money to go to Liberty “University” and try to form a ‘Crat Club. Then again, there’s still the gay Log Grabbin’ Republicans. To paraphrase (read: “corrupt”) the old axiom: Nobody ever went broke underestimating the political acumen of your average American college student.
Credit is due Marked Hiney, Liberty’s VP, for straightforwardly stating that the larval ‘Crats are thrown off the island not for any other reason than their actual beliefs. He’s not hiding his unconstitutional fascistic bigotry behind some wimpy technicality. He prays and thanks his Christian god daily for his blessed ignorance, and prays to be made even ignoranter for the sake of his eternal soul and retirement pension.
How come I didn’t see this reported on Wingnut networks? Seems to me they should be proud. Must be an oversight.
