American universities are doing everything they can to silence conservatives on campus.
It’s been so bad, President Trump even had to sign an Executive Order to protect Freedom of Speech for conservative students.
But what this Ivy League school did crossed the line and will make President Trump furious.
Jannique Stewart, a black, pro-life Christian with the Life Training Institute, was recently invited to participate in a debate at Cornell University on the topic of abortion.
But when Cornell administrators found out she believes in the Biblical definition of marriage, they banned her from speaking.
And according to Stewart, administrators told her that having someone on campus who believed in traditional marriage was “tantamount to allowing a racist to speak who held pro-slavery and pro-holocaust views.”
The Christian Post writes:
Jannique Stewart, who is African American and a pro-life speaker with Life Training Institute was invited earlier this year to participate in a debate next month at Cornell University’s Political Union, “regarding the fact that abortion is a moral wrong,” she noted in a Saturday Facebook post.
The group withdrew the invitation upon finding out that she was an outspoken defender of marriage as between one man and one woman and biblical sexuality. Her presence and participation had been officially approved and was on track to proceed until she was asked to submit a bio and those who invited her started researching her background.
“It was explained to me that having someone on campus who believed the way I did was tantamount to allowing a racist to speak who held pro-slavery and pro-holocaust views!” Stewart explained, outraged.
“I was also told that their concern was that many of the students would be offended by my beliefs and would not be able to focus or listen to my speech.”
Cornell University’s Political Union is wrong on two fronts.
First, maintaining a Christian worldview of marriage is not “tantamount” to slavery and the Holocaust.
To argue such is to ostracize an entire group of people from being “accepted” in the eyes of the university.
Second, in the school’s attempt to maintain a politically correct nature, they broke one of the major PC rules.
The university’s political union “whitesplained” to Jannique Stewart – an African American woman herself.
This comes right after President Trump signed an Executive Order to promote free speech on college universities.
Cornell will want to be careful or they could find themselves losing federal funding if they keep up these antics.
In a Facebook post, Jannique Stewart set the record straight, saying “The First Amendment supports Freedom of Speech not Freedom From Speech.”
