Kent State Professor Says Conservative Student Kaitlin Bennett ‘Does Not Belong’ To Her School

Published

Kent State University student activist Kaitlin Bennett was attacked by a professor at her own university, who said on Facebook that she “does NOT belong to Kent State.”

Bennett staged a pro-gun demonstration on campus which was greeted by left-wing anti-gun protesters.

Here is the assistant professor of political science Gabriella Paar-Jakli condemning the Kent State student conservative:

Bennett, who writes for Liberty Hangout, was unfazed by the professor’s exclusionary attack.

“I think it’s sickening that a professor would make a comment like that on a student’s social media,” Bennett told Big League Politics, firing back at the hateful faculty member.

“And along with that, I think it’s disturbing that a professor would tell a Second Amendment activist who wants everyone to practice their right to bear arms that she doesn’t belong to the college. We have always known the liberal bias these professors have, but it’s crazy how they’re not even trying to hide it,” Bennett said.

A message left for the assistant political science professor was not returned as of press time.

Bennett was previously the top activist nationally for the student conservative group Turning Point USA, but quit the organization when they failed to defend her from criticism for her creative student protests, including having a student dress up in a diaper to emulate a “Safe Space.” Bennett also found fault with Turning Point’s strong neoconservative leanings. The group’s leader Charlie Kirk recently said that neocon Nikki Haley would make a good choice to succeed President Donald Trump. Turning Point is a powerful organization on the Right (and I recently spoke to a Turning Point chapter about alternative media, and am grateful for the opportunity), so agree or disagree with her, she clearly has balls.

Here is Big League Politics’ interview with Bennett following her resignation from Turning Point:

New Gallup Poll Shows Immigration Tops Most Important Problem List

Published

on

When Americans were asked what they feel is the most important problem facing the nation, immigration topped the list for just the second time in Gallup’s history. The top issue each month since January of 2017 has been the government, but immigration has just replaced its position according to a new Gallup poll.

When asked the same question in June, immigration ranked at 14% when Gallup asked Americans what’s the “most important problem” the nation faces. It jumped from 14% to 22% from June to July 2018.

Each month, Gallup asks the same question and the answer of immigration has always averaged 5% over the 17 years Gallup has included it in their polls. So why the sudden jump from 14% to 22%?

The past several weeks social media and news outlets alike have focused on the issue of separating families at the border with President Trump’s stance on immigration and his modified policy that would keep families detained together (if detainment must occur) continuing to be a hot button issue.

Just last month, TIME ran the cover story, “A Reckoning After Trump’s Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We,” with the cover photo that was proven to be fake news. The cover showed a 2-year-old little girl crying while President Trump towers above her looking on as she wails. The cover read simply “Welcome to America.” The claim made by Time was that the little girl had been separated from her family at the border, but Yanela, daughter to Sandra Sanchez had never been separated from her mother at all. Sanchez and her daughter were arrested by Border Patrol agents under the zero tolerance policy that criminally charges anyone attempting to cross the border illegally, but at no point were they separated.

Every week immigration has remained in the news cycle, and continues to be an issue that is important to Americans. The Washington Examiner reported on Monday that The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who entered into the United States from Mexico illegally. The National Guard has also intercepted more than 3,300 others who were turned back at the border before crossing into the U.S., and have seized 11,686 pounds of marijuana.

In April of 2006, immigration reached 19% when Congress was working on passing a comprehensive immigration bill. During this time period, immigration protests popped up all across America and saturated the news cycle. The last spike, according to Gallup of immigration as the top problem was in 2014 when the news focused its attention on a large number of immigrants who were attempting to enter the U.S. from Central America.

The issue of immigration is important to Americans, but for starkly different reasons. Republicans are more concerned about potential crime, impacts on the nation’s economy, and jobs being taken away from native-born families. Democrats, in contrast, support a path to citizenship for the undocumented, but more over, they know that they need all the help they can get at the polls, with Trump’s base stronger than ever heading into the Midterms.

The Gallup poll is based on telephone interviews conducted July 1-11 with a random sample of 1,033 adults in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points and a 95 percent confidence level.
