Leftists Practically Foam At The Mouth Because A Conservative Dares To Speak At An Ohio College

Published

Around 200 protestors marched outside of Galbreath Chapel at Ohio University to protest right to work laws and a National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation speaker who gave a speech at campus on Monday, September 16, 2019.

The protest came in response to Ohio University scheduling William Messenger, staff attorney at the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, as a campus speaker.

Based on the protest’s event on Facebook,having someone like Messenger speak gives a platform for a cause that “would surely be filled with lies and deception.”

Messenger is an OU alumnus and he started his lecture at 7:30 p.m., but protestors began marching around 6:30 p.m from the college gateway to the chapel that day. They held up signs against right to work and chanted “get up, get down, Athens is a union town” while demonstrating around the chapel.

The right to work movement’s mission is to reassert the principle of freedom of association by making union membership voluntary and paying dues no longer a condition of employment.

Many of the protestors  at the event believed that right to work laws lower wages.

Gary Crihfield, a worker who participated in the protest, claimed that he isn’t a union member. He attended the protest because he is worried that wages would be lowered if a Right to Work law was passed.

“My wages reflect the union wages,” Crihfield stated. “Everyone who works at OU would be affected by it.”

However, evidence shows that in the 27 right to work states in America, affordable cost of living, higher levels of disposable income, and higher percentages in employment growth are the norm in states with right to work laws.

So, this narrative about lower wages may be misleading when considering how unions not only price out other workers from entering the workforce, but also waste taxpayer dollars and make other goods and services more expensive.

For those who want higher levels of worker productivity and standard of living, labor freedom is a must.

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.
