College Republican Establishment Tries to Deplatform America First Washington Chapter

Swamp operatives are calling the shots at the CRNC, and they’re out for the University of Washington chapter.

Establishment operatives within the College Republican National Committee are leading a drive to decertify the University of Washington College Republicans for their strong America First affiliation, hoping to replace the group with a puppet organization founded by an anti-Trump partisan.

The campus club published a letter sent by Chandler Thornton, the national chairman of the CRNC. In the letter, Thornton makes a tattletale appeal to the university’s Vice President of Student Life, demanding he decertify the UWCRs as a campus club.

The letter called for the University of Washington to recognize the Husky Republicans, a relatively new group founded by a man named Jack Pickett. Pickett’s social media history is full of lengthy anti-Trump and liberal diatribes, taking great offense at America First conservatives.

Thornton goes on to claim that the UWCRs have lost their official CRNC recognition due to “hurtful and inappropriate conduct,” using snowflake terminology that leaves little to no doubt he’s no more than an enforcer for the politically correct elite of the Republican Party.

It’s laughable that the national College Republican committee wants to replace a staunchly conservative club with a fake, inorganic front group founded by an individual who’s gone on record stating they’d have preferred a Hillary Clinton presidency over Donald Trump’s election.

However, the tattletale bully may not get his way, as it appears other national College Republican groups have arisen in opposition to his attempt to squelch a thriving chapter. The statewide California College Republicans issued a press release blasting the CRNC’s authoritarian drive to decertify chapters for America First affiliations on Wednesday.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: California College Republicans Condemn the College Republican National Committee

Posted by California College Republicans on Wednesday, November 6, 2019

The local King County Republican Party also issued a statement rejecting the out-of-touch CRNC’s attempt to destroy the club, who they attest have been crucial in performing Republican activism and building a strong young conservative movement in the Seattle area.

It appears the CRNC’s political purge tactics are largely a dictate of the D.C. establishment Swamp, with little to no support from real College Republicans or Washington conservatives.

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic

Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.

Published

on

Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.

Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.

Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.

In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.

Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.

American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.

America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
