The executive director of Freedom University believes that borders are not legitimate, citizenship is “ridiculous,” and the nation-state is outdated.
Freedom University takes pride in exclusively aiding illegal alien students and taking radical stances on mass migration.
On Monday, September 9, 2019, Campus Reform reported that St. Olaf College in Minnesota hosted an event featuring Freedom University’s executive director Dr. Laura Soltis and Arizbeth Sanchez, the university’s Community Engagement Coordinator, to give a talk titled “Solidarity In A New ICE Age.”
Borders are not completely legitimate, citizenship is “ridiculous,” and the nation-state itself has no place in the future, according to the executive director of one Georgia university.
Before declaring that the world would be a better place without borders, the group started the hour-and-a-half long speech by giving some background on Freedom University’s work. Freedom was formed in response to Georgia’s policy that allows for illegal aliens to receive free K-12 education, but does not allow them to attend the state’s public universities.
Before launching into declarations that the world would be better off without countries, the group began their hour-and-a-half on stage by providing some background on the work of Freedom University. Freedom was founded as a response to Georgia’s policy dictating that illegal aliens are entitled to free K-12 education, but may not attend the state’s public universities.
The school has built a notorious reputation for taking “direct action” against Georgia’s state government. This consists of civil disobedience and teachers joining illegal aliens “risk[ing] arrest.” Soltis boasted to the St. Olaf attendees, faculty, and staff about her arrest record and her community engagement coordinator’s rap sheet.
Soltis shared the school’s anti-citizenship ideology. For the Freedom University director, the definition of citizenship is “completely arbitrary” and is only because “we happen to be born within these man-made borders, right? What a completely ridiculous way to define citizenship, right?”
“I urge us to think creatively and courageously about a world in which there aren’t borders, right? John Lennon sang about this in ‘Imagine,’” she commented before encouraging the audience “to think of ourselves not as citizens of the United States.”
The executive director then showed a U.S./Mexico projector image, telling the St. Olaf audience to “look at how kind of silly it looks.”
“This border has created so much anguish and pain and separation among families, but another world is possible,” she declared. “Nation-states are relatively new for humanity, right? They should not exist, [and] they aren’t necessary in the future.”
One of the steps in Soltis’ plan to undermine the nation-state is to give illegal aliens a new, political identity.
“For undocumented folks [at the school], they no longer think they’re illegal or criminals, but it becomes a new political identity which they can organize around and find a sense of pride in who they are,” she stated.
A Campus Reform correspondent was in attendance during the question and answer section of the talk and asked Soltis if her organization acknowledges “the legal legitimacy of borders, immigration law, or agencies like ICE which enforce said immigration law.”
The director initially responded by stating that Americans are living on “stolen land” that was seized from Native Americans. She then said that she “partially” recognizes the legal legitimacy of borders but prefers the “natural” borders of formed by “mountain ranges” and “rivers.”
She scoffed at the idea of citizenship, believing that it is merely a “social construct.”
Freedom University is not an accredited school and only offers a variety of services to illegals such as “college preparation classes, college and scholarship application assistance, and movement leadership training for undocumented students.”
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Cons
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
