Yesterday, the University of Arizona Young Americans for Freedom
(YAF) chapter hosted alum and author Katie Pavlich. Katie was
coming to campus to talk to students about our precious Second
Amendment and student rights on campus.
The event was scheduled to take place in the campus theater at
7:00pm until the University of Arizona YAF chapter was notified
three hours before the event letting them know the location was
being changed to a classroom.
In a Twitter exchange with Pavlich, the University of Arizona
blamed the relocation on a scheduling conflict-the conflict being
that the University would be showing the movie
Her in the theater and therefore the
lecture venue had to be changed.
The University promised the students who planned the event that there would be
people directing event-goers to the new location, but as you could
guess that promise was not upheld. We do not know how many
students were unable to attend the event because they were unaware
of the new location, but we did catch word that some people said if
they hadn't seen it on Twitter or Facebook they wouldn't have
Pavlich noted that this was not the first time that a
"scheduling" conflict had arisen before a conservative event.
When Pavlich was a senior she had booked the theater for a
conservative movie screening and a week or two before the event she
was told she could no longer use the room for her event.
Sadly, these "scheduling conflicts" seem to be happening all across
the country on college campuses as liberal progressivism seeps into
campus life. Event planners of conservative events almost
always seem to run into obstacles when bringing in speakers who talk about issues deemed "controversial" by liberal administrators.
Despite the location change the classroom was packed with over
200 students eager to see Pavlich speak about Second
Amendment rights. Congratulations to the University of
Arizona YAF Chapter and to Katie Pavlich for a successful event
despite the adversity they faced!
