DePaul University Pulls The Plug On Candace Owens’ & Charlie Kirk’s Speaking Engagement

Liberals are proving every day that they are the ones who are intolerant of people’s views other than their own. They really don’t want to hear from the other side. They’d rather sit in the dark and label words that come out of Conservatives mouths as, dangerous, racist, homophobic, and violent. They want to delegitimize Conservatives and want them to stop speaking altogether at their liberal Universities. Liberals say they are for free speech, but won’t tell you that it only applies to them. DePaul University which is located in Chicago, Illinois derailed Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens’ and Charlie Kirk’s speaking engagement. According to Owens, who attached this to a tweet,

“Is free speech at Depaul University a relic of the past? Candace Ownes and Charlie Kirk of the conservative nonprofit “Turing Point USA” are no longer set to speak at Depaul Oct. 16, 2018.

The school’s Associate Vice President Of Student Affairs Rico Tyler pulled the plug on the event because of what he referred to as “concerns regarding violent language at the sponsoring organization’s national convention [What?] as well as identified populations [black Americans being criticized by black conservative Ownes for voting Democrat?] being singled out in a demeaning fashion…”

According to their website, Turning Point USA has a presence on over 1,300 college campuses and high schools across the country.”

Owens tweeted,


“For the first time ever, my right to speak as a black conservative is being DENIED at @DePaulU in Chicago by VP Rico Tyler. He has referred to my words as “violent language”. BLACK PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE TO BE DEMOCRATS is not “violent language”. Depaul is enslaving black minds.”

A statement to the press was released by Charlie Kirk according to Illinois Review, which read:

“At this point it’s clear, we’ve been blocked from campus simply because we’re conservative. DePaul’s plan was to delay, delay, delay, and then claim there was no longer ‘enough time.’ We will not let them get away with this deception.

“They never intended to let us speak and they used every bureaucratic tactic in the book to restrict our speech. This is discrimination plain and simple and it’s yet another example of why conservatives must keep fighting campus radicals to ensure conservatives have a voice at America’s universities. They have only emboldened us.”

Charlie Kirk also took to Twitter to let his followers know what happened. Kirk tweeted,


“Hey @DePaulU – why are you so afraid of allowing @RealCandaceO and I to come on campus? The left hates the idea there are other ideas They DENIED us because they say we say “potentially violent” things Hey DePaul, your fascism is showing”

Several Twitter users responded to both tweets with user Karen who tweeted,


“Embarrassing fact: When I was in University I had no interest in politics. In fact if you asked me, I would have said politics are boring. Now if they had told me I couldn’t go due to the violent language involved, I would’ve been first in line.”

User Chad Copeland tweeted,


“robably because it goes against the strict brainwashing that a lot places are doing now. If you’re not a victim, why would you need them anymore is what they think. #RedWave #KAG #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder”

User Alma Gunn thinks it might be because they tell the truth and tweeted,


“Perhaps because you speak truth? And knowing the TRUTH, You’re set FREE? Candance, please continue pressing forward. We continue to pray for you.’

User Sandy Wilson had some advice for Kirk and Owens and tweeted,


“The educational system really needs a re-boot. These so called leaders of universities are the scary ones that are teaching or should I say brain washing these young people. You and Charlie are awesome to listen to so wipe your feet and move on. They lose!!”

What do you think about DePaul University pulling the plug on Owens’ and Kirk’s speaking engagement? Do you think they are being fair? Leave a comment and let us know.
