Campus Reform reports that an African American Colorado State University student was asked to exit a meeting the day before Halloween simply because was dressed up as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in blackface. The costume portrayed the recently re-elected Canadian Prime Minister after old photos emerged showing him dressed in black face.
This incident came a year after photos of Virginia Democratic Governor Ralph Northam was also wearing black face.
Koby Peters, a member of student government from CSU’s College of engineering, spoke with Campus Reform about this strange incident. Peters claimed that other student government leaders voted to remove him from the meeting without giving him the chance to defend himself. The leaders who instructed Peters to leave were apparently of a variety of races, including white, black, and Hispanic.
Wearing blackface is typically viewed as racist when done by others groups, but Peters called to attention the irony of him getting removed from a meeting for wearing blackface, as an African American.
“As you can see, I cannot take off my blackface so adding on another shade, in my opinion, doesn’t change anything,” Peters commented.
Peters insisted that he didn’t wear the costume to offend anyone, but instead to get people talking.
“I was hoping there would be a lot of discussion because I chose this costume to bring out the hypocrisy that Canada re-elected Justin Trudeau on the back of the endorsement of Barack Obama so we really need to figure out whether blackface is OK or it’s not OK. The fact that I was voted out immediately just shows how hypocritical a certain side of the ideology is,” Peters stated. “I think it’s obvious that the reason being that it’s been taken so offensively is because I’m a black conservative on campus, which aren’t supposed to exist.”
Peters noted that this isn’t the first time he’s been singled out as a black conservative student. He added that in the past he’s been called a “nazi, a member of the KKK, and a race-traitor.”
It remains to be seen what will happen next. Peters explained that the college council that sent him to student government supposedly held a meeting on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 to determine if will keep his leadership position. Although Peter is optimistic that he will stay in his leadership role, he conceded that if he does not, “this will definitely show how afraid they are of different ideas.”
Student government leaders were not the only ones criticizing Peters. CSU’s chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers emailed its members after the incident, calling it “another recent issue with disrespect towards people of color.”
Interestingly, the email said that “this time it included a senator from the College of Engineering for ASCSU,” but it did not talk about Peters’ race.
On top of that, CSU College of Engineering dean David McLean emailed students to talk about “another incident of hate and bias.”
“This is example to us all on how we must remain steadfast in our commitment to immediately speak out against incidents of hate, bias and racism,” McLean wrote. “As a community, we in the College of Engineering abhor racism and bias, and we unequivocally condemn blackface. There is no place for hate in our college or at the university. This behavior does not reflect our values and our Principles of Community of Inclusion, Integrity, Respect, Service and Social Justice.”
“Acts of bias and racism, whether committed in ignorance or with malice, are harmful, degrading, and have long-lasting impacts. These acts are against our values, and we must continue to call out and condemn such acts. We must foster a sense of belonging in our college and continue to speak out against instances of hate, aggression and bias,” McLean continued.
Thanks to PC culture being so dominant on college campuses, conservatives of all stripes and backgrounds face many obstacles.
Incidents like these demonstrate the need for conservatives to build strong support networks on college campuses to help combat arbitrary leftist thought-policing.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
