BANNED: Elizabethtown College cancels TP USA speaker for causing a ‘disruption’

Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania cancelled Joe Basrawi’s speech on critical race theory because it was allegedly causing a “disruption.” Basrawi is a Turning Point USA ambassador, who had planned to speak to the college’s chapter on campus.

At first, Basrawi named the event: “critical hate theory.” TP USA Chapter President Alexander Russo ordered posters from the organization with this title. However, the college asked that the name be changed, so the posters were short-lived. Yet they continued to advertise the event on social media. The chapter has about 40 active members. Last semester, there were roughly twenty.

Then, Thursday, college administrators requested a meeting with Russo. Dean of Students & Executive Director for College Diversity, Equity and Belonging Nichole Gonzalez was among the administrators. There they told him the event would have to be cancelled and relocate off campus. Even then, the college requested that they make no mention of the school in anticipation of the event. Russo claims they cancelled the even because it caused a “disruption” and Basrawi was not qualified to speak about CRT.

“It was nice to be able to actually discuss with my admin why they are not letting us do this,” Russo said. “They did listen, but their minds were made up before I walked in.” He said overall, the exchange was civil.

“We’re going to do the event no matter what,” Basrawi said. “I’m doing it for the students. So they can learn something on campus.”

Meanwhile, the college will be hosting its own forum on critical race theory, entitled “Forum on White Supremacy and Global Colonization.” Among the panels, workshops and film screenings, one recurring event even claims to be “a space for individuals who identify as people of color.” Many are interpreting that to mean that people who identify otherwise are not welcome.

No representatives at Elizabethtown College, including Dean Gonzalez, responded to requests for comment.

With gas prices at record highs, Biden CANCELS gas lease

“We did it, Joe” memes of Vice President Kamala Harris and Joe Biden are popping up all over social media alongside individuals photographs of the horrendously high prices they have to pay at the gas pump to fill their cars.

Biden has no intention of fixing it, as proven by the administration’s recent decision to actually cancel an oil and gas lease win the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska’s Cook Inlet.

This is nothing short of purposeful destruction of America. The Interior Department told The New York Post that the Cook Inlet lease sale would not move forward because of a “lack of industry interest in leasing in the area.”

In the Gulf of Mexico, the department canceled two lease sales, citing “conflicting court rulings that impacted work on these proposed sales.”

The timing is outrageous, considering “as of Thursday morning, the national average price of a gallon of regular gas stood at $4.418, according to AAA — the highest on record and $1.41 higher than at this time last year.”

Additionally, the scenario also displays just how much federal judges tend to completely disagree with his actions. “Biden imposed a moratorium on the sale of new leases one week after his inauguration, but the order was later blocked by a Louisiana federal judge who granted a preliminary injunction to 13 states that claimed they would suffer ‘irreparable injury’ from the White House move” writes The Post.

At least federal judges are watching out to keep our country afloat, let along thriving, considering our own President and Vice President will not.

Republicans and energy industry representatives are fuming over the decision. “Yesterday, Americans paid the highest price for gasoline in history,” tweeted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). “At the same time Biden just canceled our largest pending American oil & gas lease sale.”

“Gas prices are at a record high, and Biden just canceled oil and gas leases in Alaska and the Gulf,” added Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). “Joe Biden is directly responsible for the high cost of gas.”

“It’s almost like the Biden administration WANTS gas prices to go higher” said Pennsylvania US Senate GOP candidate Carla Sands

“The President has spoken about the need for additional supplies in the market, but his administration has failed to take action to match that rhetoric,” Frank Macchairola of the American Petroleum Institute told CBS News, calling the cancellations “another example of the administration’s lack of commitment to oil and gas development in the US.”

“In the kind of price environment that we’re seeing, there are negative consequences to shutting off oil and gas development, both politically and practically,” he added.

If the administration had moved forward with the Alaskan lease, it would have covered more than 1 million acres, according to The Hill.
