A leftist student senator at the University of Iowa alerted the local ANTIFA group of one of the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapter’s planned events featuring North Korean Defector Yeonmi Park, according to a tip submitted through Young America’s Foundation’s Campus Bias Tip Line.
Shortly after the YAFers publicly announced plans for an upcoming event featuring Chloe Cole, a victim of the Left’s gender ideology turned courageous leader in the fight for youth protection, Hawkeye ANTIFA Action expressed its disappointment.
“Well…f**k, folks,” ANTIFA wrote in a post on X. “The fash [sic] are bring [sic] a known friend of the Proud Boys to our campus on October 16th – which is somehow more of a dog whistle then [sic] bringing Matt Walsh was.
In a since-deleted reply to the ANTIFA organization, Katie Meredith, a student senator, shared that “YAF is bringing [Y]eonmi [P]ark to campus as well,” providing the planned date and location of the previously unannounced event.
Meredith was not authorized to leak the details of the event, which has yet to be approved by the university and had not been publicly announced.
By providing privileged information to the pro-violence leftist group with an extensive history of disrupting speech, the student senator decided to put the safety and free speech and expression rights of her fellow students in jeopardy.
The student government’s director of finance, Jack Carrell, issued an apology to YAF Chairwoman Jasmyn Jordan, writing, “obviously, this is a clear and blatant violation of that trust.”
Carrell’s message goes on to state that “proper penalties” will be enforced against the student senator.
“Our college campuses are war zones, instead of institutions of learning,” Jordan told the New Guard. “Representatives who are meant to serve the student body, are shamelessly abusing their authority to belittle, intimidate, and disrespect students expressing differing views. Meanwhile, opposing groups attempt to sabotage our activities by resorting to slanderous labels such as ‘fascists’ and ‘friends of the proud boys,’ aiming to halt our events, disband our organization, and humiliate us.
Jasmyn and her chapter members, who were awarded the prestigious Chapter of the Year award by the YAF Board of Governors, are prepared to handle any more obstacles that may come their way.
