Youth for Western Civilization - UPDATED!

I just learned about a young conservatives' political action group, "Youth for Western Civilization." Here's the group's agenda:

1. Inspire Western youth to organize on the basis of pride in their American and Western heritage, and counter radical multiculturalism on campus.

2. Counter and ultimately defeat leftism on campus by pushing the activist agenda, changing college policies in a conservative or right wing direction, and restoring a curriculum that focuses on Western history, not political correctness.

3. Create a social movement on campus where a right wing subculture - similar to the left wing subculture that currently exists - will provide a healthy alternative to a poisonous and bigoted left wing campus climate.
Hey, I'm down with it brothers!

Except, the only problem is that if I identify with these values, I'm going to be attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center as affiliateing with a "
extreme white nationalist hate group." And just think, I've been working on my tan!

It turns out that Youth for Western Civilization (YWC) is the campus club that organized the planned Tom Tancredo talk last week at the University of North Carolina, which of course got
shut down by a mob of radical leftist protesters rejecting the free speech rights of conservatives.

It turns out that YWC is sponsoring a talk tonight by former U.S. Representative Virgil Goode. But the folks over at Ordinary Gentlemen don't approve. Speaking of YWC, William Brafford claims that "the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has been invaded by white supremacists."

Yeah. Right.

But note how Mr. Brafford has
no problems with the leftist brownshirts refusing to let Representative Tancredo have his say.

UPDATE: Confederate Yankee reports on the leftist brownshirting at UNC's Virgil Goode talk tonight:

6 people, presumably students, have been arrested protesting Virgil Goode's speech against illegal immigration at UNC-Chapel Hill. They seem to be every bit as tolerant as the Carolina blue fascists that violently ended Tom Tancredo's attempted speech last week.

The Daily Tarheel covered the speech via Twitter, and described juvenile protesters that simply don't understand that the freedom of speech hinges on the free exchange of ideas, not drowning out those that oppose your own.

It's a sad commentary on the state of education and intellectual discourse at Chapel Hill, but sadly a kind of intellectual bullying that has become a favored tactic on the political left.

A protestor at the Tancredo event sums up the thuggish behavior with daring honesty when she admitted, "I don't believe a lot of change in this country have come through debating and being happy and talking to people."

Presumably one day in the future this protestor or another one like her will brag about having the university with the cleanest-burning ovens.

Hat Tip: Glenn Reynolds.

Left this at Ordinary Gentlemen
In a move to bring additional racial unity to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, UNC’s Sonja Haynes Stone Center is hosting the accuser in the Duke Lacrosse Rape hoax Crystal Mangum.

It seems to me that double standard will never fade away until the left ceases its hammering about perceived social injustices against oppressed minorities. In keeping their misconceptions alive, they will always claim that our attempts at balance are attempts to exploit. And they're louder than anybody... not to mention, more exploitative (and irony-proof!)

"Illegal aliens murder 12 Americans daily"

according to world net daily.

that's 640 a month, 4380 a year.

our total casualty in Iraq are less than 4300, for the entire mission.

another point about the 4380 murders a year-it's 25% of the the murders that occur in the US.

going by the ratio of 6 to 1 for rapes to murders, it also provides that 25,000 US women are raped by by illegals.

good to see americans who are willing to stand up for rape and murder.

Screw it. The comment engine is messing with my formatting and the comment wasn't that important.
