Student claims forced participation in anti-gun propaganda
America’s college campuses are notoriously hostile toward traditional values and conservative students, fairly frequently, are faced with the proposition of publicly denouncing their own views or possibly failing a class.
Such was the case in the classroom of Midwestern State University at Provost professor Jennifer Yucus, according to a complaint filed by one of her students.
In an ongoing effort to bring attention to other anti-gun efforts, including a circulating petition and a social media campaign, the complaint claims Yucus issued a mandatory assignment to make posters with pointed, leftist messages.
The student wrote she “compelled students from her Computers For Artists class to advocate in favor of a political petition opposing firearms on campus, in opposition to a pair of bills currently before the Texas legislature, using personal art materials and MSU resources.”
According to the complaint, several fellow students expressed some level of disagreement with the assignment, to which Yucus “asked students to rationalize objections by thinking of it as a job from an employer (or words to that effect).”
After the students made the objectionable posters – including the website of the online petition – Yucus reportedly took pictures of them holding their coerced work as though they were unanimously in support of the expressed message.
The professor also used her employee email to send her class a link to the petition, the complaint alleges, and evidence shows she used pictures of her students on a now-deleted Facebook page called, “Anti Concealed Carry on Campus.”
A university administrator said Yucus is under investigation, calling the allegations “serious,” though noting the professor is still on active duty pending the completion of the inquiry.
The student complaint and other circumstantial evidence certainly suggests Yucus violated a state law barring public employees from using their authority “to interfere with or affect the result of an election … or to achieve any other political purpose.”
Only a comprehensive investigation will make that conclusion, however she is hardly alone among today’s institutes of higher education.
These bastions of leftist claptrap consistently bash otherwise conservative students with ideals completely separated from those they learned from their parents and church. Meanwhile, the so-called progressives claim all high school graduates need college.
Ostensibly, leftists push college as an added benefit when establishing one’s career. With half of college graduates either unemployed or working in an unrelated field out of necessity, this claim holds less water than ever before.
In reality, they just want another four years or more to finish the indoctrination that took place little by little in grades K through 12.
