Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk are true social warriors. They’re doing an amazing job re-educating high school and college-aged young people who have been raised in a liberal political bubble. They are the driving force behind the organization Turning Point USA. From their webpage: Turning Point USA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded on June 5, 2012 by Charlie Kirk. The organization’s mission is to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government.
DePaul University has blacklisted Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens from speaking on the university’s campus, denying conservative students the same experiences afforded to their liberal counterparts.
Kirk and Owens were scheduled to speak at DePaul University on October 16, 2018, as part of Turning Point USA’s (TPUSA) 12-stop Campus Clash tour, which kicked off Wednesday at the University of Colorado-Boulder.
The event was canceled by DePaul University’s Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Rico Tyler, after he cited concerns of “violent language” and “identified populations being singled out in a demeaning fashion,” as first reported in the Illinois Review, which covers local Chicago and Illinois political news.
“At this point it’s clear, we’ve been blocked from campus simply because we’re conservative,” said Kirk, “DePaul’s plan was to delay, delay, delay, and then claim there was no longer ‘enough time.’ We will not let them get away with this deception. They never intended to let us speak and they used every bureaucratic tactic in the book to restrict our speech.”
“For the first time ever, my right to speak as a black conservative is DENIED at [DePaul University],” wrote Owens on Twitter, “He has referred to my words as ‘violent language.’ — BLACK PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE TO BE DEMOCRATS is not ‘violent language.’”

“This is discrimination plain and simple,” said Kirk, “and it’s yet another example of why conservatives must keep fighting campus radicals to ensure conservatives have a voice at America’s universities. “They have only emboldened us.”
You go, guys! You’re doing a great job of exposing the left’s hypocrisy and prejudice. I’m so glad to see you direct your energies towards pulling down their arguments one brick at a time.
