Apparently, Democrats aren’t exaggerating when they complain there is a war on women. They ought to know since they’re the ones waging it. Companion articles culled from Campus Reform and The Daily Caller reveal that the student government at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (UNC) approved a budget plan on Tuesday that gives less funding to College Republicans (CR) than two rival liberal groups.
The plan effectively puts the kibosh on the CR’s having sufficient resources to bring two prominent conservative female speakers — Katie Pavlich and Ann McElhinny — to campus. Presumably the student government, cognizant of the fact that not all women can be intellectual giants like Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, is saving the CR from itself.
From Campus Reform:
The school’s main student publication,The Daily Tarheel, reported that the CRs received $3,090 after originally proposing a $8,180 budget to the Finance Committee.
According to the Tarheel, the Student Congress allocated about $1,000 more to the UNControllables, an anarchist group, and $2,000 more to the Siren Womyn [sic] Empowerment Magazine than to the school’s CR chapter.
Nate Pencook, chairman of the North Carolina Federation of College Republicans, argued that the Student Congress was seeking to limit diversity by cutting their budget. “I really came to encourage you on two magic words: intellectual diversity,” he is quoted as telling the UNC Student Congress.
But James Hoopes, a member of the left-wing anarchist group the UNControllables, wrote a letter to the editor that begins charitably, “It made my day to see Nate Pencook whining about how student government wasn’t giving the College Republicans enough of a handout.” Like a genuine liberal tool, he went on to write:
Everyone can appreciate the irony, right? It’s typical for the right wing to cry discrimination whenever they don’t get what they want, but insist on ‘fiscal responsibility’ when it comes to denying resources to the disadvantaged and oppressed.
Hoopes doesn’t say on what date he intends to begin collecting Food Stamps, but one would guess sooner than later.
During the debate over the issue, TDC notes, student government leaders described Pavlich and McElhinny variously as “non-intellectual,” “non-academic” and “unreliable.”
