Conservative Prof. Pounces on Nittany Lions

A professor and author from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington who touts conservatism offers his tutelage to an audience at Penn State.
    
The Digital Collegian reports an audience of about 100 laughed as Mike Adams spoke his mind last night.

“I believe the diversity movement has been a terrific failure,” Adams said. “It has become embroiled in identity politics and pushing the leftist agenda.”

He also addressed Penn State’s free speech zones.

“Penn State has an unconstitutional speech code, and something has to be done about it,” he said. “If you reach a public university’s funding, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.”

The Digital Collegian writes:

He described a case at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro in which the administration allowed a porn star to speak to students about safe anal sex but refused to fund his speech because he was too political.

“We are living in an age when on the college campus, a porn star is not offensive, but a Republican is,” said Adams.

The Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) sponsored the event.
