LEAKED EMAIL: Public University Giving Free Class Credit To Students Who Protest Kavanaugh

Published

on

5:18pm ET update:

After publication, Big League Politics received word from the University of Southern Maine’s president, Glenn Cummings, saying that they had pulled the free credit offering:

“This pop-up course was hastily arranged in the past 24 hours, without the knowledge of the Provost or myself. It was not appropriately reviewed nor went through proper channels. As soon as the Provost and I were apprised of the course, we immediately pulled the one-credit offering. We also made sure that no USM monies were being used for the trip. University policy makes it absolutely clear that our public, taxpayer funded institutions must be non-partisan in terms of political activity and institutionally impartial in all political, religious and social matters that are unrelated to our universities’ core mission of education, research, and public service.”

The University of Southern Maine is giving one free credit hour to students who participate in a protest against Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine), according to emails obtained by Big League Politics.

Students can earn 1 credit FREE for enrolling in this Pop-Up course on “Engaged Citizenship,” the email said. “The requirements of the pop-up include: busing overnight to Washington D.C. to join activists, political action groups and social justice organizations to meet Sen. Collins. Rally up around the FBI investigation of the Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh.”

The email describes the trip’s agenda, which includes the students being “escorted to the capitol Thursday morning.”

“This Pop-Up Course is Tuition FREE for all matriculated USM undergrads,” according to the email. Tuition fees waved at completion of course.”

A Google doc attachment asks students what type of protest they are interested in – including whether they are willing to get arrested, and informs the students that “bail is about $50/arrest,” instructing them to “have a plan.”

This partisan protest against Collins comes at the expense of the Maine taxpayers, considering that USM is a public institution. Nowhere in the email is Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) mentioned. King is certain to vote against Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and the students apparently will not seek him out on Capitol Hill.

WEAK: Bernie Sanders Allows Nevada Rally to be Overrun by Deranged Anti-Dairy Activists

And this guy wants to be President?

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the presumptive front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, demonstrated his weakness in allowing his rally on Sunday in Carson City, Nevada to be overrun by deranged anti-dairy activists.

“Bernie, I’m your biggest supporter, and I am here to ask you to stop propping up the dairy industry, and stop propping up the dairy industry,” an activist said after she wrestled the mic away from the frail 78-year-old socialist with a bad ticker.

The clip can be seen here:

After the microphone was cut off and security attempted to remove the activist from stage, three other anti-dairy activists showed up topless to protest Sanders’ supposed pro-agriculture beliefs as well.

The group behind this protest calls themselves Direct Action Everywhere, and they have identified the protester who grabbed the microphone from Sanders as Priya Sawhney, who lists herself as the co-founder of the organization.

“I love Bernie, but we must hold abusive industries accountable, not shield and subsidize them. Animal farming is an industry which gives welfare payments to millionaires,” Sawhney said in a statement included in a press release from the organization. “People are fed up. Like the Sanders campaign itself, animal rights is a burgeoning mass movement.”

This is not the first time that Sanders has allowed angry, unruly activists to take over his rallies. He did so in 2015 when he allowed Black Lives Matter to rush the stage and actually handed the microphone over to those belligerent racial-grievance mongers.

The Hill reported on Sanders’ weakness during his first presidential campaign:

Protesters who claimed affiliation with the Black Lives Matter movement stormed the stage during a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Seattle on Saturday, taking over the microphone and forcing Sanders to leave without ever speaking.

Moments after Sanders took the stage at Westlake Park, two women and one man climbed the stage and confronted the Democratic presidential candidate, demanding a chance to speak.

After several moments of confusion and confrontation, an event organizer took the microphone and said the protesters would be allowed to speak before Sanders. Some in the crowd booed.

One protester, who identified herself as Marissa Johnson, began by saying, “I was going to tell Bernie how racist this city is — with all of its progressives — but you’ve already done that for me. Thank you.”

Johnson spoke, among other things, about police violence in Seattle, mentioning a federal investigation into the city’s law enforcement that resulted in the appointment of a monitor to make sure Seattle police were complying with the terms set forth by the Justice Department.

“Bernie says that he’s all about the people and about grassroots. The biggest grassroots movement in this country right now is Black Lives Matter,” she added.

If Sanders somehow becomes President, he will likely be kicked around by world leaders in the same manner that he is kicked around by left-wing activists.
