    Most union-busting techniques are explicit, like legal challenges and anti-union campaigning. But when all else fails, go for the gut. Yale University's local College Republicans chapter held a barbecue on Friday near the fasting site of campus union organizers participating in a hunger strike directed against the university. Bragging about the wafting, delicious smells on Facebook, it appears to have been a move to torment the fasting grad students, who have thus far gone days without food in a protest for their worker's rights struggle. "It'll taste (and smell) delicious!" the event description said on Facebook. The tactic drew comparisons...

    Members of the Yale College Republicans hosted a barbecue Friday right next to where members of the Local 33 graduate student union participated in a hunger strike, the New Haven Register reports. The College Republicans served a meal of barbecued beef, baked beans and corn to those on the plaza, just a few feet from the tent Local 33 had erected to house hunger strikers protesting the school’s decision not to negotiate a contract. The union chapter said it wants the hunger strike to be a source of joy, and invited others to join in when one of their members...

    An act of vandalism at UC Berkeley has renewed political tensions for a conservative group on campus. The College Republicans say they feel increasingly threatened, and the latest incident in which a man destroyed the group's signs at its designated space in the university quad has the group raising red flags. On Wednesday, some members of the College Republicans said more needs to be done to protect their members and their property. The location of Tuesday's vandalism was at a place the group calls the Freedom Table. It's a designated space to promote their group and encourage respectful debate with...

    A faculty member at California State University, Fullerton has been suspended after striking a College Republicans member during a campus protest earlier this month. The altercation occurred Feb. 8 as pro-Palestine students and counter-protesters marched peacefully through campus. Anthropology part-time lecturer Eric Canin reportedly approached the group of counter-protesters — many of them being CSUF College Republicans members — and tried to rip a sign out of a student’s hand. Mr. Canin was accused of then striking another student who tried to step between them. The group’s president, Chris Boyle, said he witnessed the hit and proceeded to restrain Mr....

    Members and people with loose affiliations to the group have had their contact information stolen.Members of the student group that invited alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos to UC Berkeley say they have been physically assaulted and targeted online in the days since Wednesday’s fiery protests. “We’re probably the most harassed group on campus right now,” said Naweed Tahmas, a member of the Berkeley College Republicans. He noted that the club needed a security detail for a meeting last Thursday, a sign that tensions between the group and the area's liberal-leaning majority may have hit an apex. “I’ve been spit on, my...

    BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) -- President Trump is striking a different tone in a tweet Friday following this week's violent protest in Berkeley. He said, "Professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters are proving the point of the millions of people who voted to make America great again!" On Thursday, the president slammed UC Berkeley in a tweet for the protest and threatened to pull federal funding to the nation's top public university. There were three arrests during Wednesday's protest. Campus police say none were students. One person was arrested for blocking officers trying to break up the skirmish. The two others...

    BERKELEY, Calif. .(KTVU) - U.C. Berkeley Police officers were standing by Thursday evening, for the weekly meeting of the Berkeley College Republicans. It is the organization that invited alt-right firebrand Milo Yiannopolous to campus the night before. His appearance was cancelled when organized agitators invaded a peaceful protest, setting fires and breaking windows at the Student Union venue. "Milo had a right to speak, Milo should have been allowed to speak," declared club President Jose Diaz, to an overflow club meeting of some thirty students, some spilling into the hall. UCB estimated the campus property damage at $100,000. But the...

    Student protesters bum-rushed a Berkeley College Republicans’ tabling event Wednesday and tried to abscond with their life-size Donald Trump cardboard cut out. “A group of protesters with a megaphone confronted our table and proceeded to snatch and attempt to rip up our Donald Trump cut-out,” Jose Diaz, president of Berkeley College Republicans, said in a statement to The College Fix. According to Diaz: “I jumped up and grabbed the hands of a protestor to prevent him from [taking the Trump cut out]. The group of protestors then circled us and began yelling slurs at us in reference to Donald Trump.”...

    TOPEKA — The Kansas Federation of College Republicans recently voted unanimously to adopt a resolution calling for repeal of the state's death penalty law, a sign that capital punishment may be on its last legs in the state. “More young conservatives like myself recognize that our broken and fallible system of capital punishment in no way matches up with our conservative values,” Dalton Glasscock, a Wichita State University student and chairman of the federation, said in a news release Thursday. "By ending the death penalty, Kansas has an opportunity to promote a culture of life and fiscal responsibility. As Republicans...

    Members of President Barack Obama’s crack security staff like Colombian hookers – a lot — but they proved on Wednesday they are afraid of a few College Republicans. At a recreation center at the University of Central Missouri, security personnel refused to admit 10 members of the College Republicans to a speech by the president on economic policy, The College Fix reports. All 10 students reportedly had tickets to the event. Staffers told Courtney Scott, the group’s state treasurer, and the rest of the College Republicans that the decision somehow wasn’t about the group’s political views, but about the president’s...

    A new postmortem on the November elections from the nation’s leading voice for college Republicans offers a searing indictment of the GOP “brand” and the major challenges the party faces in wooing young voters, according to a copy given exclusively to POLITICO on Sunday. The College Republican National Committee on Monday made public a detailed report — the result of extensive polling and focus groups — dissecting what went wrong for Republicans with young voters in the 2012 elections and how the party can improve its showing with that key demographic in the future. It’s not a pretty picture. In...

    Thursday, March 29, 2012 Rick Santorum stops young man from bowling with pink ball"Friends don't let friends use pink balls." (NEWSER) -- Rick Santorum bowls a good game, but gay rights groups say he talks an offensive one. "You’re not gonna' use the pink ball. We’re not gonna' let you do that, not on camera," he told a young man while bowling with college Republicans in Wisconsin yesterday, the Raw Story reports. "Friends don't let friends use pink balls," he added. Critics say Santorum's remarks are just the latest in a long line of insensitive statements. "He’s proven that he thinks LGBT...

    While in Washington DC for CPAC 2012, Brandon, Kelsey and I decided to take a walking tour of our nation’s capital in the frigid February weather. As we strolled down K Street, we (somewhat intentionally) stumbled upon Occupy DC’s encampment at McPherson Park. While Kelsey and I at first kept a safe distance by taking pictures of the movement’s signs from across the street, Brandon marched boldly into the center of the camp. After several minutes, Brandon was nowhere to be found, so Kelsey and I decided to search for our fellow CR. Considering the environment, we had no idea...

    ovington VA --(Ammoland.com)- The Radford University protest on Wednesday was a success, even if the weather didn’t really cooperate. Despite the rain and the fact that we could not hand out our brochures and stickers unsolicited, we still handed out 500 brochures and even more stickers. Eryn Bartholomew (Vice-President of the Radford College Republicans), VCDL EM Dave Knight, and I spoke at the event. We met with the police and student event staff early so they could go over the rules with us for our protest. We also paid for our tables, which we were required to stay near during...

    Berkeley Daily Planet ^ | 9/26/11 | Thomas Lord
    The Berkeley College Republicans have taken a strong stance against a proposed law that would allow, among other things, race to be taken into consideration during the admissions process. They say on a Facebook event page: "The Berkeley College Republicans firmly believe measuring any admit's merit based on race is intrinsically racist." In this note I'll show that their belief is wrong. Not only is the use of race in admissions not intrinsically racist - the failure to consider race and other similar factors is intrinsically racist. This is not some subjective interpretation of histories of oppression. This is not...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Some Vanderbilt University religious groups will have to change their policies or risk being shut down. The university told Nashville's News 2 a number of groups are in violation of the school's nondiscrimination policy. In a statement, Vanderbilt University said, "Last academic year, an undergraduate made an allegation of discrimination against a student organization. As a result of that allegation, we sought to ensure that the more than 300 student organizations were aware of their need to comply with the university's longstanding nondiscrimination policy." Stephen Siao is the president of the college Republicans. "The policy that they've...
