'Coming Out' Week for ASU Conservatives


It’s a week of celebration for conservatives at Arizona State University.
 
College Republicans are holding their annual Conservative Pride Week where "politically conservative students will be coming out of the closet," reports the ASU Web Devil.

Each day the campus GOP has a unique event planned.

Mike Jaskie, president of the College Republicans says, "The week is always very controversial on campus, but it’s a lot of fun."

On Monday, students who wanted to "declare their conservatism" were able to "come out" by  walking through a closet door set-up on campus by the College Republicans. Those who decided to come out of the closet had their picture taken with a sign that read "I’m proud to be a conservative," Jaskie told the Web Devil.

Other planned events throughout the week include "Anti-United Nations Day," "Illegal Immigration Day," "Political Incorrectness and Academic Diversity Day" and a scheduled speech by David Horowitz, author of "The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America."

ASU College Republicans say they will also encourage students to share their personal stories of liberal bias in the classroom.
