UNL sophomore says she was berated and intimidated while trying to recruit students for conservative group

A sophomore at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln said she was berated and intimidated by people on campus Friday afternoon because she was trying to recruit students for a conservative group.

Kaitlyn Mullen said she had a table set up in front of the Nebraska Union on behalf of Turning Point USA, a national organization that has chapters on campuses around the nation. Mullen said she likes Turning Point’s pro-capitalism, anti-big government message.

Soon, however, she was confronted by women who accused her of advocating white nationalism and having KKK leanings.

She said that she began to cry because of the hostile atmosphere and that campus police eventually took her home.

    Leftists are for diversity and free speech, as long as you are just like them and say what they want to hear.

    Free speech goes both ways. The young lady has a right to free speech as do those that don’t agree with her. If she had believed she would be greeted with open arms she hadn’t done her homework. Turning Point USA is one of the least welcome organizations on many college campuses. Also Trumps presidency has polarized the country and is anti education http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2016/02/24/donald-trump-wins-nevada-caucuses-sot.cnn so there will be little good will toward his supporters. The last thing is our president has freed us from having to be politically correct so it’s now OK to attack people who don’t agree with you. I think people should have been nicer but it’s a new Trump world so anything goes.

      Nice try. These attacks, calling her a white supremacist and having KKK leanings, are simply the “logical” (nothing about a leftist is logical) outcome of the 24/7 media talking points that have been pushing people toward thinking that if a person supports the President the must be a white supremacist and KKK supporter. As long as the media continues to lie about Pres Trump’s statements about Charlottesville, people will continue to think that about his supporters. And think about this, who was the first to go negative after the election? Democrats. Who has been doing everything possible to destroy the President even if it destroys the country? Democrats! (and some establishment or jealous GOP members [some thought they should have been the nominee]).

        The media isn’t lying, Trump said it, everyone with ears heard it. It’s nothing new for Trump. Back when he was running he was very slow to back away from the KKK’s endorsement It’s the President that is destroying himself. He is toxic. He is a bully and think you can lead by name calling. He doesn’t think before he talks so his true feelings come out. In Trump World anything not praising Trump is a lie, even when it’s easy to prove true. Trump is the anti education President, look who he appointed as Sec of Ed. Turning Point USA supports his views. If the young lady thought she would get a warm reception to her ideas she wasn’t thinking.

          Again, nice try. But people heard what the media wanted them to hear. I’ll bring you up to speed. On Saturday, the President said there was blame to go around while saying he condemned the violence. (He knew the past riots that ANTIFA and BLM had participated and rightly figured they were involved hear.) On Monday, he specifically condemned the KKK and white supremacists by name. (The media, right on cue, simply said too little too late) On Tuesday, in answer to a question from the media, said there was blame on all sides. Now, I know you don’t want to believe that any leftist had any culpability, but it’s been reported in a release yesterday, I think, that their websites, as well as the white supremacists sites, had many postings promoting violence in Charlottesville. So, Mr. Trump was exactly correct, all sides. I just wish he had named the leftist groups that were involved, but I guess that will come as more and more details come out. (I’m hoping they look into Gov. McAuliffe’s involvement and his malfeasance)

    That’s what the sniveling, whining liberals do. Free speech for them and no one else. Recruit a couple of offensive (?) tackles to stand with her and then see what happens.

  • Bob says:

    Another shining example, if we need one, of how “tolerant” the left can be. Will the College be granting this young lady the same level of protection they would if her view point were from the left? Would they be going after students and faculty that protested her right to free expression? I wonder if/when the media will blame this young lady for “instigating” the incidents of hate leveled at her by expounding her right leaning views?. The College states that they are “committed to free speech from all viewpoints”. Well, their faculty surely is not. The College also wishes “to be a place of civil discourse.”. My guess is this is only if your view point 100% agrees with that of the faculty and administration.
