The website was posted to an Instagram account hosted by Turning Point Action, an American non-profit organization promoting conservative values on campuses in high schools, colleges and universities across the country.
The account called out the school for “intolerance,” adding, “We haven’t even had an event yet, gotta love @coloradostateuniversity’s intolerance.”
Colorado State University, where tuition for foreign students is $31,712 a year, has been hostile to conservative organizations in recent months.
Several incidents occurred in the fall semester of 2021. In one, a student was filmed harassing members of the Turning Point group, calling them “right wing idiots” and noting that “interfering with any of your activities is probably one of the most ethical and best things I can do with my time.” can do”.
Last fall, students were told that if they were on school property or at risk of being arrested and charged with trespassing, they must be vaccinated
A week later, in October 2021, a Liberal student was filmed admitting to tearing down the chapter’s property before hitting a member of the group.
Also in the fall, a student was caught stealing an anti-vaccination sign after the university threatened to arrest any student who failed to register their vaccination status with trespassing charges.
The university later clarified its policy, saying it would “not arrest unvaccinated students” as long as they provided their vaccination information or declared an exemption.
Conservative students on the primarily Liberal campus are part of Turning Point Action, an American nonprofit that advocates for conservative values in high schools, colleges, and universities across the country
