Two Turning Point USA (TPUSA) chapter leaders from Kansas State University are leaving the organization for hypocrisy they have seen from the organization’s founder Charlie Kirk.
TPUSA chapter president Jaden McNeil and vice president Nick Ferrera announced their resignations on social media today, shortly after Kirk bullied questioners and played the victim during a tumultuous “Culture War” event at Ohio State University.
“My misgivings with TPUSA first arose in the aftermath of the Covington Catholic incident. Many TPUSA associates initially sided with the left-wing mob, condemning the innocent high school students for having the gall to smile in the face of an adult’s aggressive behavior,” McNeil wrote in his resignation letter.
“These TPUSA associates only changed their tune once it became safe to take the side of the MAGA-supporting Catholic high school students. This incident encapsulates the fair weather conservatism of TPUSA,” he added.
Kirk set the tone by joining in the media-driven witch hunt against the Covington kids, and his underlings soon followed suit. He was even forced to admit his errors in an op/ed after the students were vindicated.
“A viral video seemed to show “Make America Great Again” cap-wearing kids from a Kentucky Catholic high school jeering and mocking a Native American in the nation’s capital. Throngs of people took to Twitter to condemn the kids. I was one of them,” Kirk wrote.
Kirk admitted that he threw the Covington Catholic students under the bus despite no evidence ever being produced that the kids did anything wrong.
“It’s not that it had been taken out of context. It’s not that the situation was more complicated than we originally thought. It’s that there wasn’t anything there in the first place. There wasn’t now, and never had been, any evidence of the high school students doing anything untoward,” he wrote.
In his resignation letter, McNeil also challenged the organization’s dedication to social conservatism. He believes TPUSA has surrendered to the Left completely on social issues.
“I harbor no hatred toward homosexuals; however, as a conservative Christian, I do not believe that gay marriage and drag queens should be glorified and promoted,” McNeil explained.
“This particular situation is part of a much larger problem: TPUSA constantly cedes cultural ground to the Left while focusing primarily on economics. The organization often ignores social conservatism altogether,” he added.
McNeil also noted the hypocrisy of TPUSA, a supposed free speech organization, for ordering him to take down the following Twitter thread:
"I dont have to like what you say, but I'll fight like hell for your right to say it."
Yeah, you'll fight like hell if it's convenient for you, but the second it starts digging into that 6-7 figure cash flow, silence.

Additionally I will no longer recommend this organization to others. In my opinion, they do not uphold the principles they claim to support.

The hypocrisy of the organization was on full display this past weekend when Kirk was protected by jackbooted security forces at Politicon, to prevent debate and discussion from prominent paleoconservative critic Nick Fuentes.

Kirk has his Conservative Inc. cronies working overtime to do damage control on his behalf, but it is not helping him dig his way out of this hole. The grassroots revolt against Kirk and his pro-drag queen strand of conservatism continues to build, and has spread to his organization.
Dana White Vows No Censorship in UFC After Media Campaign Against Pro-Trump Fighter Colby Covington
White is standing for free speech.
UFC promoter Dana White is standing strong for free speech, vowing never to “muzzle anybody” after pro-Trump fighter Colby Covington was targeted by a media campaign for making controversial statements following a huge victory last week.
“These guys all have their own causes, things, their own beliefs. We don’t muzzle anybody here,” White said. “We let everybody speak their mind.”
Covington made some candid comments following his defeat of Tyron Woodley at UFC on ESPN+ 36 in which he dominated the former champion who had professed his support for Black Lives Matter. He took the opportunity to gloat following his big victory.
“He’s standing up for lifelong criminals,” Covington said regarding his opponent Woodley. “The Black Lives Matter is a complete sham. It’s a joke. They’re taking these people that are complete terrorists. They’re taking these people that that are criminals.”
“He’s a communist,” he added. “He’s a Marxist. He stands for criminals. He hates America, and that’s why he got broke tonight.”
Covington also garnered controversy for making remarks about Nigerian-born UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Covington referenced his “little tribe” and “smoke signals” while calling Usman out. The fake news media brought up the issue to UFC fighters, who expressed their dismay, in order to push their latest phony race controversy.
“Let’s be real, first and foremost,” bantamweight Sijara Eubanks said. “It wasn’t ‘unfortunate.’ It was flat-out racist. It was racist. It was disgusting. It was quite frankly disappointing.”
“This guy has directly insulted my culture, my brother and many other cultures, and no one says anything,” Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya said. “But it just shows you a mirror. Shows you a mirror to you guys.”
“Reebok is the uniform provider for the UFC, however we do not sponsor Colby Covington. We do not agree with the sentiments he expressed, and stand firm in our belief that Black lives matter. We stand with athletes and communities who are fighting for change,” the corporation that sells shoes made by third-world workers wrote in an official statement.
Not only is White refusing to take disciplinary action against Covington, he is also claiming that Covington’s comments are not even racist and no big deal.
“I don’t know what he said that was racist. I don’t know if I heard anything racist that he said,” White added.
Big League Politics has reported on how White has stood up for pro-freedom causes in the past, such as when he fought tooth and nail against senseless COVID-19 lockdown restrictions preventing him from doing events:
UFC promoter Dana White has refused to succumb to coronavirus hysteria and remains steadfast in his resolve to hold fights even while panic grips the world.
White announced on Monday that his next pay-per-view event will take place on Saturday, April 18 with a new main event in a currently undisclosed location.
White has even said that he intends to hold UFC fights on a weekly basis at a private island, refusing to slowdown even as the global economy shutters due to coronavirus mania. He opened up during an interview with TMZ Sports on Monday.
He told TMZ that the next UFC event will take place in the United States, and he intends to use that venue to host fights for two months. However, White claims he is only “a day or two away” from sealing a deal that would allow him to hold fights in a private island venue, and this would potentially give him a reprieve from all the coronavirus-related hassles that he has dealt with over the past month trying to book fights.
“I have a private island that I’ve secured. We’re getting the infrastructure put in now so I’m going to start doing the international fights too with international fighters,” White explained. “Because I won’t be able to get international fighters – all of them into the U.S. – so I have a private island. I am going to start flying them into the private island and doing international fights from there.”
“So as of April 18, the UFC is back up and running,” White declared.
White has claimed that the fake news media is doing everything in their power to sabotage his efforts, as they want the public to suffer during the worldwide coronavirus lockdown as much as possible.
“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”
White might be wise to consider a career in politics after he retires as UFC promoter.
