A coalition of liberal student organizations has condemned California State-Long Beach President Jane Close Conoley and her administration for allowing an event hosted by the schools Turning Point USA group.
On October 23, TPUSA hosted conservative pundits Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens who were greeted by some 200 demonstrators protesting outside the venue. The activists chanted phrases such as Go home, fascists and Say it loud, say it clear, immigrants are welcome here.

Would it be offset by them NOT supporting the 2nd amendment?
They are against the first and the second amendments. Since they reject the Constitution, they need to go to iran for 3 years. If they don’t like it, then to somalia.
“Student groups furious at Cal State-Long Beach for supporting First Amendment”
Well, eliminate the groups.
If they hate the 1st amendment so much, then they should immediately go to prison for daring to express such an opinion! Practice what you preach, maggots!
Given that the First Amendment is needed most precisely to protect the right to voice unpopular speech, these children’s opinions should not be allowed succeed in stifling others’ free speech. School administrations need to tell them to get stuffed.
I worked with a millennial contractor. Among many of the idiotic things he spewed was that the 1st Amendment should be removed. He said people should only be able to say what the government approves them to say. The college brainwashing was complete in this guy. He also thought that income inequality was one of the biggest problems in the country and that no company should be allowed to make a profit. All profits should be confiscated by the government for social programs. Luckily he was not registered to vote. That was too stressful for him.
Universities have morphed from centers of higher learning to propaganda centers for the Progressives/Democrats.
This idiot should have been arrested for daring to express an opinion.
The common theme with that guy, and others like him is that the rules only seem to apply for his benefit. Speech they don’t like needs to be shut down. Their speech should be embraced. It’s the rules of a 5 year old.
The students of today are like sheep going to their slaughter. Especially when they are willing to give up the right to bear arms.
Conoley is a far, far leftist, surprised she did not ban the event.
I gave my Long Beach State 49er clothing to charity because she banned mascot Prospector Pete as he represented “genocide” to the American Indian.
Some on the left are not foolish enough to be anti-1st Amendment. You have to be crazy to outlaw free political speech. And besides, even if she is on the side of the crazy leftists, as University President her job requires her to protect the university from lawsuits, one of which would be to challenge federal grants to the university if they didn’t protect free speech.
So far, other than some small right leaning colleges, I only know of the University of Chicago that came right out and told students not to expect coddling; that part of being at a university is to hear ideas you disagree with.
Did the moron practice what he preached and share his income with you?
If not, he is a hypocrite and not worth listening to.
Big 10-4 on the hypocrisy. You are correct, he was not worth listening too. We tried to educate him but he was not teachable. In the end, he was fired for cheating on his time card.
