Video: Republican student, college conservatives are compared to KKK

Lauren Cooley, Editor at Red Alert Politics, joined Dana Loesch on Tuesday’s “Dana” to discuss a recent incident in which flyers that read, “THIS IS OUR CAMPUS, NOT THE KLAN’S” were taped to windows at the first chapter meeting of a conservative student group called The College Republicans at Amherst (ACR).

“It appears progressives are now comparing every Republican student, anyone who is an independent thinker on a college campus, to the KKK,” asserted Dana. She added, “What in the world is going on? When does education happen at these college campuses anymore? Because honestly, it feels like everything’s a protest.”

“If you break the mold at all, if you’re not part of that hive mind, that collective thought, they’re just going to marginalize you and try to make you, basically, shut up and go away,” explained Cooley.

“But I think it’s an opportunity for young conservatives to speak out and say, ‘Hey, here’s where we draw the line. We are not a part of this,” she added about the unwarranted comparisons of Republican students to extremist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan.
