Controversy at TPUSA Summit: Confrontations, Bannings, Blacklists, and a Heavy Police Presence

The ‘Student Action Summit’ has turned into a brouhaha.

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.

The video can be seen here:

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.

Others downplayed the controversy, and thought the reaction from Shapiro’s defenders was unwarranted.

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.

Supreme Court Contender Amy Coney Barrett Visits White House as Trump Prepares to Announce Pick

She’s reportedly the frontrunner.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
