Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder and Executive Director Charlie Kirk joined Breitbart News Editor in Chief Alex Marlow on Wednesday to announce that Breitbart News and TPUSA will staff up for a brand new weekly campus phase on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily. Kirk mentioned the weekly segments will give listeners the chance to listen to firsthand accounts, “straight from the students,” about “the culture war that is happening on our college campuses.”
“We’re going to have, at least once a week, student chapter leaders come on the show and talk about some of their experiences — what’s happening on the ground,” Charlie Kirk informed Breitbart News Daily Host Alex Marlow on Wednesday morning. Marlow known as TPUSA “the most important right-of-center group on campuses around the country,” making the group Breitbart News’ good associate to realize true perception into what is occurring to conservatives at America’s faculty and universities at present.
Kirk agreed with Marlow’s evaluation of the significance of shining a light-weight on intolerance of conservatives on campus, mentioning that Breitbart News has taken a number one place in reporting on the campus tradition battle, usually protecting the experiences of TPUSA’s scholar members.
“So one example, Alex, would be our Turning Point USA president and chapter leader Peyton, whose door got fired bombed,” continued Kirk, “This is at Andrew Breitbart’s Alma mater, actually, Tulane University — and Breitbart [News] did such a beautiful job of covering this.”
Kirk was referring to an incident at Tulane University wherein three college students have been arrested for arson after setting the TPUSA chapter president’s dorm room door ablaze.
“I do have to say, the UC Berkeley story in particular, Breitbart really helped keep the drumbeat going — remember, it took them a while to arrest that thug that punched Hayden Williams in the face,” added Kirk as he recalled one other current incident occurring on the campus of UC Berkeley, wherein a conservative activist coaching TPUSA scholar members was punched a number of instances within the face. This incident partly spurred President Donald Trump’s current executive order on restoring free speech to campuses.
The TPUSA founder then went on to speak about how Andrew Breitbart had impressed him, particularly on the subject of upper schooling and the “cultural war” encompassing these establishments.
“You really look at the reason why [Andrew] became one of the most effective — if not the most effective — culture warrior of our generation, it’s because of universities,” mentioned Kirk, including that Andrew Breitbart had ultimately realized that in academia, there was “an effort to try to turn [Andrew] into a leftist — into an anti-American.”
Andrew at all times talked in regards to the significance of counter tradition — insurrection angle — and he eluded to this in his guide, Righteous Indignation — that the left has dominated a lot tradition, for so lengthy, that being a conservative is now the culturally rebellious factor to be. No one needs to be a conformist whenever you’re younger, give it some thought, who needs to be the man that thinks like everybody else does? Well, that’s a liberal. You are probably the most conformist, least attention-grabbing particular person on the earth should you’re a liberal or a leftist on a school campus. If you’re conservative and you may defend your beliefs — the entire sudden, you’re very attention-grabbing, and you’re thought of to be a insurgent. And I see that occuring on the campuses.
Kirk went on to say that the leftist “religious dogma” that has a stranglehold on Hollywood and the mainstream media at present, was taught in universities. “This is the predominant viewpoint, the ivory tower, wise men of Washington, elitist viewpoint,” mentioned Kirk, “Andrew Breitbart talked about this, it comes from our universities.”
“Breitbart [News] has been beating this drum for a long time,” added Kirk, “and I think there’s a lot of people that are realizing, ‘Wait a second, how do you get openly socialist members of Congress?’ The country just does not wake up and, out of nowhere, say ‘Oh, that’s what I want.’”
“It is taught,” affirmed the TPUSA founder.
“Where did the copywriters of the Jimmy Fallon show go to school? Where did the copywriters of the Kimmel show go to school?” continued Kirk, “They went to these universities and that’s where they got indoctrinated — So, you have to bring the battle to that frontier, and that’s what we’re going to continue to do.”
Turning Point USA’s new phase with Alex Marlow on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily will broadcast each Wednesday, starting on April 17 at 8:00 a.m. EST.
