Let My People Speak

Updated on March 6, 2019

Edited by Derek Gutierrez


No stranger to the spotlight, Trump appeared earlier this week at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Much of his speech was mostly ramblings relating to current events, but one part was truly a game changer. If Trump can deliver on this one promise, then he may become one of the best presidents over the past five decades. “Today I’m proud to announce that I’ll soon be signing an executive order requiring college and universities to support free speech”.

To the average American this may seem like nothing, but anyone following the attacks on conservative speakers in the past few years this is a massive blow in the culture war. A culmination upon years and years of silencing from people like Ben Shapiro, Kathleen Parker, and Charles Murray has lead to this backlash.

Teri Kanefield wrote a piece about the “real reason” why Trump wants to open up conversations. It’s to allow people like Richard Spencer, who are openly white supremacists, to speak. Let’s say this is 100 percent true. So what? We all can disagree and think Spencer is a buffon for his beliefs, but we shouldn’t silence him. To quote a Democratic Socialist, “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”


The Crusade against all things conservative continues with the underachieving journalists Dakin Andone and Sarah Moon. The title of their new article, “ Conservative activist allegedly attacked on UC Berkeley campus” sounds bad right. It gets even worse, if you look at their article it has the literal attack on video. Explain how this is an “alleged attack”. If it’s alleged then we won't have evidence of the attack happening but the first thing you see in the article is this video:

In terms of comedy, I have the story of the century. Imagine for a minute you're a Trump supporter and you decide to go out to eat for a nice dinner. Everything is going fine until a woman comes over and starts harassing you to take off your Trump hat. Despite clearly being in the wrong, she proceeded to twist the knife in ways that rivals North Korean torture techniques. Apparently, though she thinks she's the victim, “He’s not a victim. I am the victim. I have been bullied, OK?”

Let’s be honest here, harassing someone is not as bad delivering a can of whoop ass to a college student. What makes this story so special is what happens after, karma is indeed a bit#*. According to NBC news, this woman is now deported.

Whether you are pro or against immigration this is good news. This is our system acting correctly, you attack someone, you're gone. That’s what needs to happen because we have rules and standard. This shouldn’t be considered a far right position.

      Yep. We have freedom. We have boundaries: Two sides of the same coin.
