  • Christina Beattie Tabling at PBSC(1)
    Christina Beattie is one of Young Americans for Freedom’s (YAF) top leaders. She has stood up against liberal administrators who have intimidated her and threatened to kick her off campus. Campus police watch over her like a hawk when she tables for YAF, and even fellow students say the ideas she is promoting has no place on “their” campus! Christina Beattie thinks otherwise. This is why she and other YAFers have filed a lawsuit against Palm Beach State College (PBSC) for violating, not only her constitutional rights, but the rights of all her fellow students.

    “My school is trying to silence my views and prevent me from associating with like-minded students. It is very discouraging that a tax-payer funded institution can get away with denying me my constitutional rights and treating me as a danger to society that needs to be muzzled and constrained. Young Americans for Freedom and Alliance Defense Fund have made it possible for me to fight back against this egregious injustice.” said Christina Beattie Chairman of PBSC YAF.


    On September 7, 2010 Christina Beattie and then Florida YAF State Chairman and Vice-Chairman were told to leave the “Club Rush” event on PBSC’s campus by a school administrator and campus police, even though they received prior permission to be there. They were told to leave because they were tabling and handing out “unauthorized” materials criticizing President Obama’s economic policies. Shocked by the treatment they received; the YAFers contacted the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) for legal advice, and sent out a press release detailing the incident. Within hours the story went viral, and was picked up by major news outlets and almost every major conservative blog. The entire incident was recorded on video (posted below), which was picked up by Fox News; Red Eye. Click Here to view the segment.


    On November 4, 2010 ADF filed a suit on behalf of Christina Beattie and all parties involved. The suit is primarily focused on PBSC’s unconstitutional policies that prohibit students from speaking to or distributing literature to one another on campus.  “PBSC’s speech policies are among the most blatantly unconstitutional in the country,” said Casey Mattox, Senior Legal Counsel for ADF.  “Christina and YAF are to be commended for their defense of the First Amendment on their campus and we look forward to the vindication of their rights.”

    • This is what our young people should be doing, they should be fighting the good fight to ensure they have freedom on campus. Christina! Keep it up, proud of the work both YAF' are doing.

    • It is a shame if we keep going on like this in this country. Everybody stciks to side that pays him. What a pity. A country that is almost impossible to get justice. So many don't even know what is fair & just so far it favours them. We have all been turned to a bunch of sancophant. Well, if this is what we coud only learn from our leaders, I pity the future of this country.

    • How on earth can a person who vied for Presidency lack even an ounce of shame to aesdrds citizens in this way. Most of the people there most likely voted for him and he's giving them a lecture about not being part of the cause! I want to believe that GEJ is smarter than that but he seems adamant in proving me wrong. Mr President have you forgotten? You told us that you are the best man to solve these issues, nothwithstanding our history. Instead you fart all over the place and are suffocating us with polluted-pungent air.

    • I precisely had to thank you so much all over again. I do not know the tgnhis that I would have gone through in the absence of the creative ideas revealed by you over such concern. It had become a very troublesome concern for me, nevertheless understanding a new specialized approach you resolved the issue took me to jump over fulfillment. I am grateful for this help and thus hope you realize what a powerful job that you're putting in training people through the use of your web blog. I am certain you haven't met all of us.
