The City of West Palm Beach, Florida is cracking down on Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit, blocking the conservative group’s conference goers from accessing the convention center where the yearly event is being held.
Armed police cordoned off the door when municipal officials arbitrarily decided the convention center had reached maximum capacity.

Some of the young conservatives who were forcibly queued in crowded conditions outside of the event venue have since been granted access to the convention center, with law enforcement appearing to back down in some capacity in response to the demands of the attendees. Photography of the convention center hall reveals an event far more socially distanced than the entrance to the venue, raising questions as to why the police are blocking off admission to the event.
President Donald Trump is expected to speak at the event sometime this weekend. The conservative activist group has implemented social distancing and safety measures, but it doesn’t appear to be enough for the Democrat city government of West Palm Beach.
The city has sought to limit attendance of the event at the Palm Beach County Convention Center to 300 people, well below the crowd of thousands the yearly event usually attracts.
Conservative public figures such as Tucker Carlson, Donald Trump Jr, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz are expected to speak at the event.
The situation is developing, and Big League Politics is monitoring the event.
Tennessee High School Principal Suspended for Speaking Against Big Tech Censorship
Welcome to an Orwellian hellworld.
The principal of a Tennessee high school has been suspended from his duties for daring to criticize the unprecedented censorship enacted by Big Tech companies against President Donald Trump earlier this month.
Principal Barton Thorne of Cordova High School in Memphis had been speaking in a teleconference in which he condemned the riot at the US Capitol. Throne also slammed the censorship that followed the event, comparing Twitter and Facebook’s censorship to Joseph McCarthy’s sham accusations in the 1950’s.
“There have been times even in American history where a small group of people decided what you could hear. You think about “McCarthyism. If you don’t know about that, you can Google that or talk to your Social Studies teacher,” said Thorne.
“It’s what’s going on with Twitter and Facebook and Google and Apple, and their decision as private companies to filter and to decide what you, you hear and know about.”
Thorne was almost immediately suspended by the Shelby County School district, pending an official “review” of his totally innocuous comments. Thorne later drafted an email apology, bowing for his transgression against the authority of tech oligarchs.
The American education used to instill the values of free speech and political liberty in those it taught. Fidelity to such concepts have been cast to the wayside, sidelined in favor of indoctrination into the American elite’s racial caste system and liberal ideology.
