Turning Point USA (TPUSA) is set to conclude their annual Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, FL, which has featured speeches from leading Republican figures such as President Donald Trump, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
However, most of the buzz has not come from the official event prepared by the TPUSA organizers. The controversy that has created a stir on social media comes from the insurgency of “America First” patriots of the event.
Big League Politics reported on Thursday that former TPUSA organizer Jaden McNeil was tossed from the event abruptly without any reason being given after previously being approved for attendance.
“This was obviously a coordinated attack planned so that I had no time to cancel flights or lodging. Shows just how pathetic and petty these people are,” McNeil wrote in a tweet.
“They encourage abortion activists and Communists to attend, but if you are opposed to mass immigration, they ban you,” he added.
Others reported experiencing similar treatment as McNeil at the event, as TPUSA – an organization that publicly trumpets the values of open debate and freedom of speech – creates a blacklist of unapproved conservatives guilty of wrongthink.

The most noteworthy happening at the event was a brief confrontation between “Never Trump” neocon Ben Shapiro and paleoconservative video blogger Nick Fuentes.
Shapiro gave a speech about Fuentes last month in which he accused Fuentes of being a neo-Nazi and a white supremacist due to offensive statements the commentator has made in the past. Fuentes maintains he was joking in the comments, and has criticized Shapiro for refusing to debate with him.
While Fuentes and his supporters were on a street corner being interviewed by journalists, he saw Shapiro on the opposite side of the street about to cross. As Shapiro crossed, Fuentes approached him while he was with his family and questioned him about the speech.

Prominent liberal and conservative figures have hammered Fuentes for questioning Shapiro, including journalist Megyn Kelly, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, TV host Meghan McCain, and creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti.
I’m no fan of @benshapiro as everyone knows. But @NickJFuentes – you are a PUNK. You don’t confront a man in public when he is with his family and young kids. You are very fortunate your stunt ended the way it did. https://t.co/j2ouzbH5CO

This is a perfect example of what NOT to do unless you just are trying to get attention. Confronting someone with their kids and family with cameras is wrong on every level. Do better next time. There are better ways to get your point across. This wasn’t it. https://t.co/WXaNRw7XTP

.@benshapiro handling himself beautifully despite a nasty provocation in front of his children. Not easy to maintain one’s dignity while under this kind of attack but as usual Ben manages it. https://t.co/8MtO5NqpPU

Others downplayed the controversy, and thought the reaction from Shapiro’s defenders was unwarranted.
I don’t think nick did anything wrong and there’s no way to get me to pretend I do. 🤷♀️

Whatever you think of Fuentes, the fact they need 6 security guards to hunt for him in order to prevent him from potentially expressing an opinion is quite frankly pathetic. https://t.co/FgiHBLABPm

If you think @NickJFuentes asking Ben Shapiro why he slandered him in a 45 minute speech in front of his family is worse than Shapiro slandering him in a 45 minute speech, you might be a leftist.

The “I’ll debate anyone, anywhere, anytime” crowd sure seems to be having problems debating anyone, anywhere, anytime.

The police were called on Fuentes when he announced he would be outside of the Palm Beach County Convention Center the following day. Fuentes could be seen surrounded by cops after it was determined he was too close to the convention center.

Fuentes said he was not arrested by police, but was given a written notice that he was trespassing and then let go. He left the event premises and held an impromptu press conference.
Meanwhile, inside the event, Shapiro was ragging on President Trump and telling conservatives to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and outcompete Big Tech monopolies in the rigged marketplace.

The chasm between the Conservative Inc. and the populist grassroots is only widening, and TPUSA is ground zero of this war for the future of the movement.
BONUS FOOTAGE: Can you believe this is what TPUSA thinks will impress young voters?

PROPHETIC? Fledgling Alabama U.S. Senate Hopeful Tommy Tuberville’s Campaign Bus Goes Up in Flames
This is prophetic considering what is happening with his campaign.
Alabama Republican U.S. Senate contender Tommy Tuberville’s campaign bus went up in flames on Tuesday night, as his campaign sputters amidst a heated competition with former Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the seat.
The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office reported that Tuberville’s campaign bus burst into flames on Interstate 59 while heading northbound. The bus driver was not injured due to the massive fire.
Tuberville was once considered the favorite to beat Sessions, but his campaign is losing steam as the public realizes he is a RINO. President Donald Trump, who has publicly supported Tuberville over Sessions due to his controversial tenure in the administration, has even cancelled a planned Alabama rally in favor of Tuberville, perhaps sensing that he has backed a loser.
Polling from June shows that Sessions is surging against Tuberville, as Alabama voters realize which candidate is the genuine article. Sessions has a longstanding conservative voting record, particularly on the crucial issue of immigration, while Tuberville has no record other than being a mediocre college football coach.
Big League Politics has reported on Tuberville’s weakness as a candidate on the matter of immigration. He has supported flooding the U.S. with foreign labor to squeeze Americans out of well-paying jobs to boost corporate profits:
Football coach and Alabama Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville appeared to endorse the notion of admitting 400,000 Indian visa workers to the United States in remarks made on an Alabama politics podcast in December, claiming that current rates of illegal immigration are the only factor stopping the country from bringing in the large pool of workers.
“We have 400,000 people in India that are educated, well trained… That want to come here. They want to be Americans, they want to get into our system, they can help. 400,000, we can’t let them in, because we’re being overrun by illegal immigration.
IWe need workers, there’s no doubt about that. We need workers to come the right way.”
The use of the H1B program to replace American workers with Indian tech professionals is well documented, and it’s doubtless that allowing 400,000 workers from the world’s second most populous nation to immigrate to America on the premise of their supposed workplace skills would prove devastating to many American tech professionals.
American IT companies are increasingly staffing themselves with a workforce primarily made up of Indian nationals, pushing American workers out of the workforce in exchange for a staff that will work for far lower wages. The H1B program tethers visa workers to their employers, creating what is essentially a system of indentured servitude, where quitting a job jeopardizes a visa worker’s green card prospects.
As seen during recent elections in Virginia, Colorado and North Carolina, voters are realizing that Trump does not necessarily endorse the best and most conservative candidate for office. This trend of voters rejecting Trump’s picks may continue in Alabama on July 14 during the GOP runoff primary election for U.S. Senate.
