Being Conservative Is Against The Rules? College Rejects Conservative Chapter Because It Doesn’t ‘Conform’ To School Values

An Iowa college’s student government rejected a conservative club’s application to operate because the organization allegedly didn’t conform to the school’s mission.

After Wartburg College’s prospective Turning Point USA (TPUSA) chapter applied for official club status, the group was denied the right to operate on campus. Founded in 2012, TPUSA is a non-profit organization that seeks to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government, according to the national group’s website.

“The Student Senate body were concerned that the values of Turning Point, as evidenced by expressed tactics, were not in line with the values of Wartburg College,” Daniel Kittle said, reported Campus Reform on Friday.

Kittle wrote in an email to members of the club that he would be happy to work with students to advance a “new student organization that supports their agenda to increase conservative dialogue.”

“We worked really hard with the subcommittee, and made a lot of changes to make them comfortable with our organization,” TPUSA Iowa and Minnesota Field Director Ali McGough said, noting the group was disappointed in the student government’s decision.

“The Student Senate has closed the door for Turning Point at Wartburg and we were very upset because it should just be like any other decision you can appeal and we felt we were just stopped right then and there in our tracks,” Emily Russell, a Turning Point USA club member, said, according to KWWL.

No club has been rejected in the past four years at the college, according to Russell, but the Student Senate told KWWL that the school rejected a prospective club in 2016.

“One of the red flags for me was some of the tactics that the national chapter had,” Wartburg Student Body President Naomi Alene said, according to the local television station.

The club currently meets off campus.

Wartburg College did not reply to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    I smell a lawsuit coming for discrimination. Oh, wait, that only works for minorities.

    • But it’s or privilege to be legally discriminated against in our own countries, Mike, they always remind us of that.

      • Mike

        Have not seen you on in a while, how have you been?

        • In a word, busy. Hope all is well with you, man!

          • Mike

            yea, things are going pretty good so far this year. Hope next year is the same for me and good for you as well.

      • Cynical Old Bastard

        Long time no see. How ya been?

        • Good just busy. It’s nice to come back and read some informed comments, though. I hope all is well with you too!

    Wonder who wipes all those college professors behinds?
    Just saying, people not smart enough to pour pee out of a Texas cowboy boot with the instructions written on the underside of the heel, not likely to know how to wipe their own!

    • Billy Sharpshooter

      Spot on John.

  • They should sue anyways, sue the student body, sue the university as a corporation, sue the deans and principals individually. Something will shake and fall.

  • gazoo3

    School is where you go to learn how to be stupid and those who can’t teach.

  • all those federal grants to the teaching staff are paying off

    Being conservative to me has nothing to do with guns, Muzrats, Mexicans, no nothing like that. Being conservative is a path that sees you respect your elders because in all honesty there is nothing new under the sun and I’m sure your parents and grandparents have seen it all before. Any path that refuses to listen to wise ones is not cursed, it just curses itself.
    Society now is fake, totally weird, and making zero sense. I call upon just common sense to address a bad mistake.
    Failure is not an option.

      Common sense has become so rare that it should be reclassified as a Super Power.

      Aquaman, Batman, Superman, Commonsenseman. . .

      • Cynical Old Bastard

        Awww… fuck.

        Ya gotta stop doing that shit to me. You are aware that I have to go invade the enemy camp under that handle, right?

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          • Cynical Old Bastard

            Lol. I had completely forgotten that one.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            Thought you might get a thump out of it. . .

          • Cynical Old Bastard

            I did.

            Brother, I’m about to go on sabbatical again. I have a couple of miles of fence to build before spring. About ten to repair. Five wire. By myself. So that tells you how much walking I’ll be doing. I’m three weeks in and already wore out.

            Fuck. I live in a completely different world than most of these folks. I spend most days outside. They live in a fantasy world and I worry about a Badger or Coyote eating my little dog.

            They go to dog parks and most times I ‘m beyond cellphone reception range. There is no 911 on my job. If I seriously fuck up I die. No safety net. Therefore I don’t fuck up.

            Yet these people think think they can “teach” me the “proper” way to live AND seek to educate me.

            LOL. I teach at University levels. Several different subjects. K–state tried to bring me back into the game. Offered me “incentives.”

            The audacity astounds me. I told them to leave me alone.

            I get called an idiot on regular occasions.

            It amuses me.

      I just sent an email lecture about no-fail missions.

    Should have told them they were an organization that promoted black pedophile rights. They’d have been given a whole building to hold their meetings in.

    No Conservatives — code word = no whites.
