(Fox News) Student government leaders at an Iowa college have refused to officially recognize a conservative student group because of its affiliation with the national chapter.
The Student Senate at Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa, rejected a request by Turning Point USA to create a student chapter on campus. The student leaders said they turned down the request because the group is “hateful, sexist, racist” and engages in “discriminatory” behavior, The College Fix reported.
“These concerns were highlighted by the conflict between the values and policies of Cornell College and the actions of Turning Point USA leaders, members, sponsored speakers, or programs that included: hateful, sexist, racist, or otherwise demeaning or discriminatory messages; and, slandering college employees and attempting to restrict free speech through the Professor Watchlist,” according to a written rationale by the student senate.
