The Miami Hurricane reported on October 30, 2020 about an incident where University of Miami College Republicans were instructed by a university official to remove a sign that read “I’m pro choice. Pick your gun,” as they tabled outside on October 29.
The sign depicted several kinds of firearms, which included an AR-15. This image triggered a number of students at the university.
“I do feel like there is a time and a place,” declared UM senior John Cuddihy. “That’s where I think maybe it was too much on a college campus…I think there’s a distinction between glorifying assault rifles and just being pro-gun in general.”
UMCR President Andrew Hefley recounted that while the Republican group was tabling, they were informed by the Director of the Student Center Complex in a call that their sign represented a violation of university policy.
“I’m very confused because it’s just pictures promoting the Second Amendment,” he said.
Other students were of the opinion that UMCR was intentionally stoking political tension.
“They are purposefully making the campus an uncomfortable place to exist,” UM student Nathaly Gonzalez said.
The use of political ads on campus has been a topic of contention among members of UM’s student Senate. Some Senate members want stronger regulations on ads in order to protect the sensitivities of certain members of the student body.
“A sign that might perpetuate fear of racism, certain inherent feelings that they might feel unsafe, minority groups, people who identify a different way… I think that’s when the discussion comes in of whether a sign should be put up in the first place,” commented Eaton Residential Senator Ishaan Chatterjee.
UM President Julio Frenk recently sent out an email statement in response to a Trump campaign sign being vandalized. He reaffirmed his support for students to place political ads on campus.
The email was titled ”A Message on Mutual Respect” and in it Frenk declared that UMCR was peacefully exercising their free speech rights and criticized the act of vandalism.
“This is an unacceptable act of disrespect, and those found responsible will be held accountable,” Frenk wrote.
Universities are getting out hand. As bastions of leftist thought, both administrators and their radicalized student bodies look to stymie any thought that challenges leftist orthodoxy.
At the pace the U.S. is going, advocating for the Second Amendment on university campuses will soon become prohibited by school authorities on the grounds of being “insensitive.”
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.
