Discrimination comes in many forms. What if you were not allowed to see your elected President speak due to your political beliefs? Would you be outraged? Shouldn’t the media be outraged? Well, it happened. Students were not allowed in to see President Obama speak due to their conservative beliefs. Absent in the mainstream and leftist media, we can only hope conservatives have a strong enough voice to wake the American people up. This should not happen. The administration is bringing back the ways of 1950 in many different forms.
College Republican students participated in a civil protest against Obama’s economic policy in a “free speech” area on the University of Central Missouri campus, far away from the venue of the speech. When they went to attend the policy speech, they had rid themselves of their protest posters and attempted to enter using their purchased tickets. Their conservative and Tea Party shirts remained, which was within the rules. A security officer deemed these students a security threat and banned them from entering. His immediate defense was, “It doesn’t matter if you are Republican or Democrat.” I think we found the problem.
Chairman Alex Smith of the College Republican National Committee said in a press-release this morning:
“This is outrageous. How can the President expect to work with Republicans on Capitol Hill when his team is busy banning conservative students on college campuses? It just proves what a farce this “pivot tour” has been. It is clear that President Obama would rather preach to a pre-screened liberal choir than work across the aisle.”
Is this how we treat different opinions? By not allowing students to attend a policy speech? Correct me if I am wrong but Barack Obama is our President. He works for us. He is our President whether we voted for him or not and we reserve the right to attend a basic policy speech. Never before have I seen such a blatant disregard for civil rights.
I highly doubt the DOJ will step up and stop similar civil rights violations.
