Leftist mob harassed their members, shut down their speaker — now College Republicans say student gov’t revoked meeting room access

It’s been a rough several days for the College Republicans at the State University of New York at Binghamton.

Last week, a mob of leftists harassed members of Turning Point USA who were at an outside table helping advertise an upcoming College Republicans-sponsored speech by conservative economist Arthur Laffer. Members of the College Republicans were tabling next to TPUSA and said they were harassed and threatened as well.

Then dozens of disruptive left-wing students defied police and shut down Laffer’s speech Monday.

Now things have gotten worse.

The SUNY College Republicans said the school’s student government on Tuesday revoked its access to the online system that lets them reserve campus meeting rooms — and canceled already reserved spaces to boot.

“For this reason, tonight’s meeting will be canceled,” the College Republicans told its members on Facebook. “We apologize for letting you know on such short notice, as this came as a surprise to us as well. We will keep you updated with developments and information about future meetings.”

Why?

Campus Reform said it obtained an email from Erin Bishop, the student government’s executive vice president, telling the College Republicans that its meeting room access was suspended because the group failed to seek approval from the student government before tabling last week.

But John Restuccia, president of the Binghamton College Republicans, told the outlet such reasoning is bogus.

“We didn’t have a permit to table because [the table was located on] public property,” he told Campus Reform, “and also one of the groups that was with us wasn’t [Student Association] funded.”

SUNY Binghamton’s student government on Wednesday didn’t immediately reply to TheBlaze’s request for comment on the matter.

‘Right now we’re pretty much dead in the water’

“Without a room, you can’t organize on campus,” Restuccia noted to Campus Reform. “We can’t hold meetings anymore.”

He added, “Right now we’re pretty much dead in the water.”

Restuccia, however, told the outlet that the College Republicans are looking to take legal action against what he called a strike against the First Amendment: “This is what our Founding Fathers were fighting against.”

  1. Perhaps, just perhaps, these students should be going to classes and studying instead of going to politically aligned meeting and creating a circus. If the college had any balls at all they would be taking names and photo’s and issuing expulsion notices. Expel a few of the trouble makers and maybe the other lemmings would taken notice and get back to studies, and save some student loan money.

  2. Praying that these ibrictrinated “useful idiots” wake up and see reality before it’s too late for our republic. God bless us all

  3. Once these remaining institutions of propaganda succeed in purging themselves of critical thought altogether, I recommend that they be walled off and isolated, to protect thinking people from the mindless snowflakes therein. With any luck, they might eventually consume one another, thereby raising the national average IQ and reducing the numbers of liberals in the country.

  4. It seems like a lot of the loud mouths are women that like to disrupt but again there was a reason our forefathers didn’t allow women to vote or hold office.

    1. As an educated and thinking woman, I find your sexist comment offensive. Half of the population in this or any country are women. To lump all women into one category is derogatory. Please rethink your comments and figure out how to improve your attitude in the future.

  5. All these LEFTISTS have is their DISRUPTIVE/CHILD LIKE ATTITUDES AND DEMEANOR…….it’s sad that these young ones have been apparently INDOCTRINATED in SCHOOL by FAR-LEFT ZEALOT PROFESSORS! i would never send a child of mine to a COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY, WOULD RATHER HAVE THEM JOIN A BRANCH OF THE MILITARY OR GO TO A TECHNICAL SCHOOL TO LEARN A “PROMOTE-ABLE SKILL”!

  6. When are we as a country gonna take back our liberally controlled academia? These so called collegiate “think tanks ” are doing nothing but indoctrinating our younger generations and keeping them controlled by brainwashing them with these illogical liberal ideas. We need to take our children’s minds back- and take back collegiate life and teachings as well. This is unacceptable!

  7. They should shut down the student government until this is rectified! This is a crime, unconstitutional, and totally illegal. Perhaps they should shut down the school until their authorities can regain control of the student body!

  8. I’m glad that I’m not young because if someone gets in my face and starts yelling I promise you will understand the word “Repercussions “ after I knock out your teeth. Nobody has the right to get in peoples space and scream at them because they think their right!
    Plus on top of that 90% of college students don’t know shit. They don’t have to worry about life they worry about school. When you gotta pay for own toothpaste and toilet paper is when you start to understand “NOTHING IS FREE” you bunch of retards! Free school and medical care is something Democrats having been offering forever. FOREVER!
    It’s not gonna be free and if it ever is you won’t be free. All you have to do is look at these socialist countries and it’s right in front of your face.
    FYI- any college students or anyone for that matter wants to scream in my face you better wear a mouthpiece!

  9. Simple answer, GET OUT OF NU’YAK and move to a state that allows intelligent discussion. Another solution would be , when some punk slugs you once, slug them back twice as hard and twice as often. Scum only flows when not afraid of retaliation.
