Dylan Mulvaney To Speak In Same SLU Ballroom Matt Walsh Was Forced Out Of

By

Saint Louis University will host “transgender” activist Dylan Mulvaney for a lecture on “women’s empowerment” in two weeks.

The Mulvaney lecture will be sponsored by SLU’s Great Issues Committee, which is essentially a shell organization for funneling students’ tuition dollars into the wallets of leftist celebrities. Despite promising to “stimulate insightful provocative debate on current issues,” the organization exclusively hosts speakers whose values align with the Left.

The event is set to take place in the very same ballroom that a Young America’s Foundation-sponsored Matt Wash lecture on the pro-life movement was effectively forced out of in 2021

The Catholic, Jesuit university took full advantage of its COVID powers by gradually increasing so-called “precautions,” until hosting Walsh in the ballroom was no longer feasible, despite allowing every possible leniency for a leftist event just weeks prior.

Also ironically, the ballroom is located within SLU’s Busch Student Center, a building sponsored by the brewing corporation whose foolish decision to enter into a business partnership with Mulvaney irreparably harmed one of its flagship brands.

Decades ago, when the Great Issues Committee lived up to its name, it worked closely with Young America’s Foundation to host truly interesting and inspiring speakers including William F. Buckley and Margaret Thatcher. This was in addition to a mix of non-YAF, liberal speakers, providing necessary balance that allowed for students to hear multiple perspectives before making up their own minds. Unfortunately, student government leftists eventually passed a measure barring GIC from working with YAF, and that measure still stands to this day.

Now, the organization uses its nearly $200,000 annual budget solely to host leftist celebrities, while conservative students are left with a few hundred dollars and rely on the generosity of external supporters to bring in common sense, conservative speakers.

As originally reported by YAF’s New Guard last summer, Mulvaney’s standard honorarium for a campus lecture was $40,000. It is unclear whether or not his fee has increased in the time since then.

Mulvaney’s talk on “womanhood” follows the release of his new song, “Days of Girlhood,” in which he portrays women and teenage girls as promiscuous over-spenders who are constantly drugged up and emotionally distraught

Saint Louis University claims that its mission is “the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity.” 

SLU must have a very different definition of truth and glory than most people.
