University of Kansas Protesters Crash Republican Meeting, Craziness Ensues

The problem with America summed up in one video.

Progressive students crashed a meeting of young conservatives at the University of Kansas to protest about the constitution, institutional racism, and republicans in general. The conservative group, Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), a branch of Young America’s Foundation, caught the craziness on-tape and uploaded part of the meeting.

These arguments all started two weeks ago when the same protestors attended a YAF meeting, where the debate topic was “safe spaces” in response to a letter written by Micha Cox, a transgender student who was unfairly harassed on campus.

I’m not a political guy whatsoever. I actually hate politics because it’s just a bunch of arguing and no one tends to listen to anyone. Essentially, it’s a giant pissing contest, with both sides trying to last longer than the other. That being said, I don’t know how anyone can defend the female student’s actions in her protest. I understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and she has the right to protest, but yelling and screaming at a peaceful debate will get you nowhere (Well, unless you’re apparently running for president.). Telling the conservative students to leave college in general because “it’s usually a liberal place” makes absolutely no sense at all. Is it possible to have a normal debate in this country? Don’t answer that because I already know the answer. It’s no.

Also, if you think the worst part of the video is the actual protest, you’re wrong. It’s the snapping after someone speaks. Save the snapping for musicians and poetry clubs. Did I mention I hate politics?
