Foundation speaker and former spokesman Jason Mattera got disinvited from speaking at Messiah College. Here's the account from Human Events:
"Christian College Gives Pro-Riots Leftist Piven a Forum, Then Cancels Conservative Speaker"
Nothing has changed on America’s campuses.
Frances Fox Piven. You’ve probably heard that name before. She’s the aging leftist “academic” who called for Greek-style“strikes and riots” here in America. She’s advocated overloading the state and federal welfare programs to accelerate the fall of capitalism. She’s a proud admirer of Karl Marx and an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America … and that’s all before lunchtime.
Naturally, she’s also a college professor in New York City. So to maintain “solidarity” with her underworked and overpaid professoriate brethren, Piven also hits the college speaking circuit.
Just last week, Piven was a guest speaker at Messiah College, as part of the school’s American Democracy Lecture series. As one would expect, she used the occasion to prove her leftist bona fides by calling the Tea Party racist, compared the Occupy Wall Street temper tantrum to the Civil Rights Movement, reaffirmed her dreams of seeing mass rioting in the United States, and even went as far as to say that “riots are what poor people do when they get together.”
Great way to boost the image of those you claim to champion, Frances: Liken them to barbarians!
But here’s where the story gets good.
