UC-Merced student government leaders are denying the conservative viewpoint on campus.
Conservative activist, Mike Fincher, and his club at UC-Merced were working hard to raise funds from their school to host Karl Rove next fall. They submitted the budget to the associated students to pay for Rove's fee. However, the students government president, Juan Carmen, removed their budget request. No other group had their funding removed from the proposed budget. This Tyrant-in-Training Carmen claims this is because he didn't like the fact that Karl Rove's honorarium would take up some of the budget.
I wonder if Carmen complained when the school spent $1,000,000 in security costs to bring Michelle Obama to speak at graduation? Obviously he is not concerned about intellectual diversity considering that the only conservative speaker that has appeared this school year is Chris Horner. Yet there has been a parade of liberal speakers including Jimmy Carter, Dr. George Lakoff, candidates from the Socialist Worker Party, including their vice presidential candidate, and others.

Sue their asses...
They forget what country they live in,, and what they aspire to with this action. sad.
....sometimes I wonder if the coming political violence will begin on campus.
No surprise. This is what socialists want and what they do.
It’s all about power and control power and control.
Well, then he should repay to the conservative students the million dollars spent on Michelle Obama.
Student governments and these “activity fees” are the stupidest thing ever. 90% of the money will probably end up going to leftist groups despite members.
Typical liberal move ... silence any dissenting opinions ... all in the name of tolerance.
Typical DemoTard brainwashed Brownshirt goons, showing their fascist heritage. Domestic Enemies against Free Speech.
While I think it is terrible that they can keep conservative speakers out, I think it is more terrible that they are paying $1,000,000 for ANY speaker. All this whining about the cost of college tuition and they bring in expensive speakers all the time. I can’t afford to go to all these fancy speakers. How can college students afford it?
Where are you getting the “$1 Mil speaker Fee” from?
