UNL sophomore says she was berated and intimidated while trying to recruit students for conservative group

By Rick Ruggles / World-Herald staff writer Aug 30, 2017 Updated 8 hrs ago

A sophomore at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln said she was berated and intimidated by people on campus Friday afternoon because she was trying to recruit students for a conservative group.

Kaitlyn Mullen said she had a table set up in front of the Nebraska Union on behalf of Turning Point USA, a national organization that has chapters on campuses around the nation. Mullen said she likes Turning Point’s pro-capitalism, anti-big government message.

Soon, however, she was confronted by women who accused her of advocating white nationalism and having KKK leanings.

She said that she began to cry because of the hostile atmosphere and that campus police eventually took her home.

Mullen took photos and videos of parts of the incident.

UNL said through a statement Monday that it is “committed to free speech from all viewpoints” and expects the campus “to be a place of civil discourse.”

The statement said the atmosphere of civility Friday “was eroded by behavior that was offensive to many. ... We are continuing our review of this situation, including discussions with all involved.”


UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green and Executive Vice Chancellor Donde Plowman met with Mullen on Monday.

Hank Bounds, president of the NU system, said through a statement Monday night that UNL representatives “had an opportunity to model how differing opinions can be exchanged with civility, respect and dignity. It appears that opportunity was missed. I’m deeply troubled that a student has been treated this way.”

Turning Point is known in part for its professor “Watchlist,” made up mainly of professors whom the organization deems radically liberal.

Mullen, of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, took a photograph of one woman near her table who held a sign: “Please put me on your watchlist. Prof Amanda Gailey,” the sign read. Gailey is a faculty member in the English department at UNL. She could not be reached for comment Monday evening.

At least one other woman flipped off Mullen and held a sign that read: “Just Say No! to Neo-Fascism.”


Others had signs about the Watchlist.

Earlier, Mullen said, a man came out of the Nebraska Union and told her to move her table to another area because she was distributing propaganda and hadn’t reserved the spot. He said he would call the campus police if she didn’t move.

She said the police came but didn’t order her to move.


Eventually, she said, the police came to her aid as the situation grew more heated with several women. That’s when the police took her home.

A pro-capitalist "Fascist"?????

That is not even possible. The level of historical ignorance on display at NU is shocking. Where did all those loonies come from in freaking Nebraska? Are they out of state students?

No wonder fewer men are going to college. The black and Hispanic guys have trouble because "affirmative action" has to be on the sly now and the white guys don't want to go because they will be accused of rape with no due process and or "hegemony" or some such idiocy.

What's left? Athletes on a scholarship, high functioning autistics, gay men and metrosexuals who walked around with their dicks tucked between their legs.

:lol:

Don't sell this student short.

This is a college campus that we are talking about.
The college administrators probably have the campus classified as a "gun free" zone.

Hell.... the article specifically mentions one of the college staffers hanging around there just to berate the student.

It's obvious the girl was being harassed from multiple avenues.. not just a few other students.

Ole Miss cancels off-campus weekend Greek Life retreat after a BANANA PEEL found in a tree sparks racial fears

Incident took place Saturday at Camp Hopewell during a Greek Life leadership-building retreat that was supposed to last three days
Three members of historically black sorority say they found banana peel hanging from a tree after attending discussion about race relations
Ole Miss senior Ryan Swanson came forward, saying he tossed the peel because he could not find a trash can
Retreat was scrapped after heated discussion that left some students feeling 'not welcome' and 'not safe'


Alexa Lee Arndt, interim director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Ole Miss, said in an internal email obtained by The Daily Mississippian that many members of the Ole Miss community were 'hurt, frightened, and upset' in the wake of the peel incident.

Disability lawyers say the easiest & quickest way to get it is to go to a shrink and be diagnosed with depression.

Fucking bullshit. :roll: Couldn't approximately 1 in 4 or 5 people be technically diagnosed as depressed? WTF? Or just proclaim they've thought about suicide in the past? *facepalm*
