Black Students’ Organization calls for an end to College Republicans’ student group funding


The Black Students’ Organization has demanded that the Student Governing Board pull funding from the Columbia University College Republicans, citing the recent invitations of white supremacist speakers Tommy Robinson and Mike Cernovich.

SGB distributes allocations of over $250,000 annually in student group funding—comprised of undergraduates’ student life fees—to over 90 student groups, most of which are religious, political, humanitarian, and activist groups. Last year, CUCR received $4,640 from SGB.

“We do not support, in any capacity, giving a platform to beliefs that blatantly oppose our livelihood and humanity, and especially not in the name of intellectual diversity,” BSO said in its proposal. The group also sought support from other student organizations, asking for participation in a “Columbia Coalition Against White Supremacy.”

Robinson’s talk at CUCR’s invitation last month, which focused on the perceived dangers of immigration and Islam, drew hundreds of protesters from campus groups and outside organizations, including Black Lives Matter: NYC. Protests have already been planned for the Cernovich talk, which will take place Monday night.

BSO asked that funds be redistributed to affinity groups that are typically targeted by speakers like Robinson and Cernovich, including Muslim groups, queer and trans groups, and groups oriented toward students of color.

During an open discussion at the Columbia College Student Council meeting on Sunday night, BSO members asked council members to pass a statement in support of its demands, arguing that CUCR does not have a positive impact on the campus community. Although CCSC controls how much funding SGB is able to distribute, it does not determine which groups the governing boards recognize. BSO receives funding from the Activities Board at Columbia, a different governing board that oversees funding for most identity-based groups.

“The ways in which we receive funding as a group and the way that we are legitimized as a group are by students passing judgement on how strong our programming is and how community-oriented we are,” said Braxton Gunter, CC ’18 and president of BSO. “This is a matter of who we allow a platform,” he said.

CUCR Director of Operations Joseph Siegel, CC ’19, argued that in attempting to bar certain speakers from campus, BSO was conflating intellectual ideas with “physical ideas of safety and violence,” and in doing so allowing “a heckler’s veto to whomever feels emotionally hurt by anyone.”

Robinson and Cernovich were paid to speak using outside funding, including from alumni and national conservative groups, according to members of CUCR. But the facilities and security used for the event were paid for with student activities fees.

Council members debated where to draw the line when it comes to bringing speakers to campus.

“If the word ‘white supremacist’ can be applied to a person, maybe don’t invite them to our campus,” Nicole Allicock, CC ’18 and CCSC vice president of policy, said.

Allicock also proposed future talks between CCSC and CUCR to discuss which speakers are appropriate to bring to campus, taking into consideration the potential mental toll on students.

Dafne Murillo, CC ’19 and a CCSC academic affairs representative, pointed out that derecognizing or defunding CUCR does not mean silencing the group, since CUCR would still be able to hold events and rent spaces as an unrecognized group.

After hours of deliberations, CCSC members voted to submit a general concern report against CUCR to Student Conduct and Community Standards in a show of support for BSO. Rules Administrator and Executive Vice President for University Life Suzanne Goldberg, who oversees SCCS, has said that the University will not prevent CUCR from continuing to invite inflammatory speakers to campus.

College Republicans president Aristotle Boosalis told Campus Reform it was like being investigated for a “thought crime,” adding it’s “a direct attack on our existence … because we think differently.”

It’s unclear where the investigation stands, but Boosalis believes the claims will be dropped ─ like previous ones have ─ because no rule has been violated.

"Mueller’s got to go… Congressional pressure is growing by the hour,” Gaetz told Breitbart News in an interview earlier in the week. “Mueller was not a spectator to the transactions that now give us grave concern.” 

Gaetz said in a statement introducing the resolution that new evidence has emerged that the FBI withheld information from Congress about Russian corruption of American uranium companies and prevented a key FBI witness from contacting Congress.

“Although federal agents possessed this information in 2010, the Department of Justice continued investigating this ‘matter’ for over four years. The FBI, led at the time by Robert Mueller, required the confidential witness to sign a non-disclosure agreement,” Gaetz said in a statement.

“When the witness attempted to contact Congress and federal courts about the bribery and corruption he saw, he was threatened with legal action. By silencing him, Obama’s Justice Department and Mueller’s FBI knowingly kept Congress in the dark about Russia’s significant and illegal involvement with American uranium companies,” he said.

“These deeply troubling events took place when Mr. Mueller was the Director of the FBI. As such, his impartiality is hopelessly compromised. He must step down immediately,” he said."

"The number of refugees admitted into the country during the first month of FY 2018 by the Trump administration plummeted to 1,242 – an 87 percent decline from the 9,945 admitted during the first month of FY 2017 by the Obama administration.

The percentage of refugees admitted who are Muslim declined dramatically as well, from 45 percent in October 2016 to 23 percent in October 2017, according to the State Department interactive website.

Of particular note is the precipitous drop in the number of refugees admitted from the seven countries whose citizens were temporarily banned from traveling to the United States under the first travel ban, Executive Order 13679, issued by President Trump on January 27, 2017.

In October 2017, the first month of FY 2018, only 275 refugees from these seven countries — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudian, Syria, and Yemen — were admitted to the United States under the Refugee Admissions Program.

In contrast, in October 2016, the first month of FY 2017, a total of 4,581 refugees from these seven countries were admitted into the United States under the Refugee Admissions Program (1,352 from Somalia, 1,323 from Iraq, 1,297 from Syria, 414 from Iran, and none from either Libya or Yemen.)"

Idiots. The man is above reproach. Go hunt the dark web for more conspiracy theorists to drain your brain of the last vestiges of reason. trump is a treasonous threat to America as we have known it. trump has convinced you to forego reality and believe his incessant outpouring of lies and half truths. As Mueller closes in, trump must divert your attention from his obvious inability to confront the Russians.

Nobody has answered.........

Why haven't the sanctions against Russia, imposed by an almost unanimous vote in congress, been implemented? October 1 was the final date. Whasssup? Your silence has been deafening.

Mueller is above reproach?  Stop focusing on what Ivanka wears and read something of substance.

An (R) by our name.  Of which you can not give one single instance of anything posted by any of us that even hints at racism.  You, on the other hand, have posted something much more racist than anything any of us ever has.

It's all over the internet - try and keep up.  The Black Student Union is calling for charges, maybe you should threaten them with the big (R).

Al Waleed bin Talal is the Saudi Billionaire that was just arrested in part of the cleanup happening in Saudi Arabia. 

Al Waleed paid for Barrack Obama to go to Harvard.

Al Waleed is an ardent member of Wahhabism which is largely known to be responsible for spreading Muslim terrorism to the west.

This is the kind of unsubstantiated accusation that vulnerable Americans on the internet may buy into.  Don't.  Please do your due diligence before believing the information individuals on the internet send your way.  It's often meant to deceive and/or mislead.  We're being attacked and spoon fed propaganda from every angle and it's imperative we search out facts before accepting what we read.  Particularly if it's negative information being used for partisan purposes.  It's up to Americans to participate in the security of our nation.
